Learn our story, from the beginning and into the future.
Ever since we opened our gates we have approached life (and death) differently. While some just see the end of a loved one’s life as a time for grief and mourning, we prefer to think of it as a time for reflection, appreciation and even celebration. This is evident in everything we do, from the way we conduct our services to the amenities we choose to offer. We are not a burial ground. We are a close knit community dedicated to honoring, sharing and preserving the amazing and inspirational stories that are life.
In a nutshell? Experience, professionalism, compassion, and empathy.
We've learned a lot over many years. Like how to present options without overwhelming. And how to meet the needs of many caring parties. People come to us in difficult times, and we respond kindness, calmness and expertise. Our goal is to create a beautiful occasion and make you feel welcome, always. We spend our days planning with families. We stay up to date with industry developments. And we make hard times a little easier.
Learn the legacy.
For more than thirty years, our family has provided the community with dignified and compassionate funeral and cremation services at affordable prices.
We are committed to honoring the memory of your loved one and respecting your decision for the services you choose. Today’s economy requires all families to pay close attention to cost. Our services are designed to provide you with the flexibility to purchase only what you want. Overpaying does not mean better service.
Our family has several low cost packages for burial and cremation that allow you to choose the services and merchandise you want at a price that is fair. In fact, we have introduced a "Compassionate Value" packages that give you the very best service available at the lowest possible cost.
We are always available to you, no natter when you need us. Someone is always there to answer the phone anytime, day or night...24/7.

Pre-Need SpecialistRead Bio
I am a Phoenix, AZ native, and I have spent several years serving hundreds of families and introducing preplanning solutions and aftercare support services. I've been a Funeral Arranger, Family Care Specialist, and a Certified Preplanning Agent, holding my insurance license with the Arizona State Board of Insurance. I'm also a certified presenter and educator with the City of Phoenix’s division of Senior Recreation and Parks. In addition to my ongoing commitment to serve my home state communities, I am a proud veteran of the United States Army where I served as a Finance Specialist and Business Administration Specialist. I take great satisfaction in assisting others with every aspect of their preplanning requirements, taking every detail into consideration, no matter how small, large, or complex. Every family is special and unique. With questions, I always respond quickly with kindness, understanding, and expertise. My goal is to create a meaningful experience for every family, every time, hoping to bring the peace of mind that everyone deserves when they have finished the preplanning process. I am a member of Pleasant View Christian Church in Phoenix and enjoy cooking, playing guitar, and traveling to any place that has a body of water to enjoy.
