Summer Photo Contest Winners

Over the summer, we held a photo contest. We asked for entries from families we have served either through our funeral home or through our pet division. Shown here are the winners of this year's contest. The winners received either a $50 Cold Stone Gift Card or a $50 PetSmart Gift Card. Congratulations to both winners and thank you to all who entered. We hope you'll enter again next summer. Remember, it's the memories we make today that our family and friends will cherish for years to come.

A Cool Delicious Treat

On July 31st, we held an old fashion ice cream social at our Tyrone Chapel. Despite Mother Nature being uncooperative as we had a tremendous thunderstorm, we had the opportunity to enjoy some delicious sundaes with over sixty individuals who dodged the puddles and the bolts to enjoy some good old fellowship. Each family received a complimentary family portrait. Below are just a few of the smiling faces. We can wait until the next one. Thank you to all our volunteers.
