Sharing the Love, Honoring the Life and Preserving the Legacy ... Online

New web siteThe Anderson-McQueen web site has received more than just a facelift. We have designed an online resource to help our friends and neighbors understand the value of ceremony and to inspire them to create unique memorial services to honor the life of their loved ones.
