Helping Families and Friends Honor Their Loved One

"As Funeral Directors, it is our calling to help comfort and console every family we serve.  Grief and the associated crisis is a lifelong event that needs to be tended to.  We do provide that long term support to families that ask for help.  All of this does not mean funerals must be sad, somber and dark events.  A funeral is to help family and friends say goodbye to someone they loved in a meaningful way.  This can be through traditional or nontraditional means.  The funeral serves a purpose.  It helps those same family and friends take the first steps to realize that someone they love and who made a mark on their lives is gone.  As a society we are continually working to avoid the hard things in life.  Sometimes working through the difficult things makes us stronger and more well rounded people."  [Jay Sperling in "The Independent" magazine.]    

15 Years Later

Today marks the 15th Anniversary of the worst terrorist attack on US soil. This day when everyone’s reality was rocked when two aircraft were flown into the World Trade Center towers, one while many of America was watching; one aircraft was flown into the hardened side of the Pentagon penetrating more deeply into the rings of than anyone thought was possible; and, one aircraft was aimed at the Capitol, the seat of our free government but was stopped short by a group of 40 heroes who took it upon themselves to stop these terrorist knowing that it was going to cost them their lives. This day, 15 years ago, stands as a tragic reminder that we were attacked brutally on our own soil.
