In response to the COVID-19 outbreak in Michigan and the restrictions that impact funeral service, we will be adjusting our way of business to protect our families and staff. At this time, and in compliance with directives from local, state, and federal authorities, we will limit the number of guests allowed in our facility and work to provide remembrance and celebrations of life in a manner that is safe and meaningful.

Our staff is prepared to respond to these changing circumstances and we are ready to work with families to find solutions during this time.

For the safety of our customers and employees, we will be available by appointment only to maintain a safe environment.
