Covid-19 Update (Revised 3/21): Our prayers go out to everyone in the community and worldwide. We are still open. We are working from home as much possible, to practice good social distancing.
How has the pandemic effected funerals and planning?
We are suspending all face to face meeting for non-urgent pre-arrangements. All pre-arrangements can be done through mail, email, and phone conversations. If a family insists on meeting for an urgent pre-need we will.
For at-need families we will be following the guidelines of the Monroe County Health Department, NYS PAUSE declaration, and City of Rochester State of Emergency, and will limit all private visitations, cemetery, and gatherings to 10 people(immediate family only) including staff. All arrangements can be done with minimal to no face to face contact if desired. This is the best course of action we can take to safeguard you, our staff, and the community.
We are truly sorry this pandemic will impact so many families during a time of grief, when family and friends are so needed for support. We encourage all of those that would normally attend a funeral to look for online guestbooks, give donations instead of flowers, call, email, and text, to find a way to show your support. We hope many families select to hold a future memorial service when things return to normal. Thank you to all, and please support your community. Together we will prevail over these troubled times. Information is constantly updating and developing and we will do our best to keep this link updated.
