Dear friends,

The last few months have been difficult on all of us, but most difficult for those who have had a death or are planning for the death of a loved one. We’ve done our best to be certain we can continue to help those who call on us in the best way possible.

For this reason, our front door continues to be open every day, as it has been since the beginning of the Covid-19 emergency. We welcome you to stop and see us for any reason, though a telephone call ahead of time is always a good idea. When you need us, we are here.

With the current restrictions put in place by Michigan’s governor, we are limited in the way we can gather here at the funeral home. Currently, inside gatherings are still limited to 10 people. Though this might work for small, immediate family gatherings, it is not very helpful for larger families or for public funeral and memorial service gatherings.

Through the many local relationships we are blessed to have, we can assist families with a number of options for larger gatherings. You may choose to have a funeral in your home church or we may be able to arrange to have a funeral in another local church with which we have a working relationship.

You may opt for a funeral or memorial gathering at a local pavilion that we have made arrangements with or you may choose to have a gathering at our facility, outside, under a tent that we will arrange to have placed.

Though these are trying times, your needs come first. Rest assured we continue to do everything within our power to find options that will suit those we serve. Call us any time; we are always available to discuss your needs.

Many thanks for allowing us to help,

Joe Messenger, Rachel Smith and staff
