Though Bryan and Diane are the two funeral directors, we pride ourself in having a large extended staff to assist in numerous aspects of providing the service we offer. These include staff present at funerals to coordinate the cars and assist people attending the funeral, secretarial staff, staff to assist at calling hours, and staff to assist with transfers. We believe the people who we choose to support and represent us are the best at what they do and we are proud to call them part of our team.
