To lose someone you love is a devastating human experience. Therefore, it is important to be realistic with
respect to funeral expenditures. We do not want your choices to be more than is affordable, nor less than you
would like. It is important that the arrangements be in keeping with your wishes and budget.
In an effort to provide the finest services possible, we are dependent upon the families we serve for making payment prior to services and ceremonies. To avoid any possibility of misunderstanding and in order to provide you with financial flexibility, we offer for your convenience the following payment options:
Money Order/Cashier’s Check
We gladly accept: VISA, MASTERCARD, DISCOVER, AMERICAN EXPRESS.
Assignment of insurance on verified life insurance policies.
Policy verification must occur using funeral Resource Group, which charges a fee of 3.9% for policy verification and processing.
Payments by Estate — We require that a member of the family pay funeral expenses and file their claim for reimbursement with the decedent’s estate.
If you anticipate a problem or difficulty in meeting these obligations, please feel free to discuss your situation with us.
