When choosing a funeral home, you may want to research whether or not the business is owned by a local family or run by a large corporation. There is a difference.
During the past twenty years, publicly-owned corporations have been consolidating the funeral business similarly to what has occurred in other businesses. Recently, this trend has reversed because the corporate-owned funeral homes have simply not measured up to the service that families receive from family-owned funeral homes.
Historically, funeral services have been provided by generations of local families who have deep roots in their community. When dealing with such an important event, turning to a funeral director whom you know and trust can make a world of difference. A family-owned firm will give you the personal attention and caring that you deserve, and the extra support that you will need after the funeral is over. You will also receive the outstanding professionalism that only generations of service can cultivate.
