Thank you for stopping at our website. My name is Ernie Heffner and I am the president of our family owned funeral homes. Although I am proud of our rich history which goes back more than 100 years, this website is about what we can do for you and your family today.


I promise you will find our website to have compelling examples and actual pictures of our commitment and flexibility in offering our customers real value in today's world. Whether you are interested in a cremation or a funeral, we have the honest reasons for counting on us in your time of need.


You will not be embarrassed. Our facilities are comfortable and spotless. Our services are handled with warmth, dignity and respect. In fact we are so confident that you, your family and friends will not only be pleased but actually impressed with how we serve that we have a written guarantee! Since 1989, we offer every family a money back, 100% Satisfaction Guarantee. We take the risk out of selecting a provider. We feel our customers deserve no less. 


If you are interested in cremation, you should know we own and operate our own private crematory so we know whose ashes are in the urn AND we return 100% of the recoverable ashes. To review a list of reasons and pictures as to why families choose us for cremation, read more about our Cremation Services here. You will find it all there.


Veterans, look no further. I personally guarantee that no other funeral home exceeds what we do in honor and respect for Veterans. In fact, most do not even come close. Read more within our Veterans section and see for yourself.


I am very proud of the people I have the privilege to serve with and encourage you to share your ideas and questions with them. You will find them to be courteous, sympathetic professionals worthy of a close, confidential relationship.


Our customers are truly our best referral. In fact, we have over 1000 written referrals and recommendations! The families we have served know how we understand that our customers do not want us to make it right...they want us to get it right and we do. We are good listeners, flexible and sensitive. As you review our website, you will see for yourself how we demonstrate our dedication to exceeding the expectations of our customers.


Within this website, you will find clear examples of why thousands of families say we are superior to other providers. You will come to understand why we consistently receive national recognition as being among the most service oriented, consumer friendly death care providers in the United States.


If you are feeling at all skeptical, I understand. Please read more in our About Us to see what real customers say about us. You will find that my staff is referred to with the sincerest of affection and appreciation. That is because they truly are the very best, caring professionals at what they do and they are at your service. Read the customer comments and you too will appreciate how a decision to select us will benefit you and your family.


Please feel free to contact us if there is anything we can assist you with. Thank you for your consideration.
