About us

Gathering with friends and family to mourn together and celebrate the life of your loved one is an essential part of the grieving process. Whether you choose burial or cremation, a full traditional funeral or a more relaxed memorial service, our friendly and compassionate staff can help you plan a service that is as unique as your loved one. The following are the ways we have supported our families through the process.

When burial is selected, usually any services that we plan for you will center around the casket being present. Tradition can be followed, with visiting hours, a church service and then interment at a cemetery, or you can decide to have a more relaxed service. Every piece of a funeral with burial selected can be tailored and customized to fit your family's needs and

Cremation only refers to the way that you and your loved one have decided to handle their physical remains. We offer a full range of cremation services, ranging from simple to more "traditional", and we will work with you to create a service for your loved one that reflects the person they were in life, while also granting a healing experience for you and your family.

We work closely with captains around the North Shore to facilitate the safe and legal scattering of ashes at sea. Our friendly and compassionate staff will be there with your family every step of the way, and will assist you in selecting the scattering urn or method that will work best for you.

We are humbled and honored to have assisted many families in repatriating their loved ones back to their home countries. Whether choosing burial or cremation for your loved one, you can rest easy knowing that our compassionate staff will work directly with all consulates and other government agencies to ensure that the last thing you have to worry about during a loss is the logistics of getting your loved one safely back home.

We also assist our families in the pre planning stages. Whether families have questions about options of preplanning or would like to proceed in prefunding their arrangements for themselves or loved ones, our experienced staff are here to support every family for any part of the process.
