We have been taking several precautions to prevent the spread of Covid-19 Coronavirus since the first case of the disease was detected in the United States in January of this year. The safety of our clients, guests, and staff is very important to us.

Recently, the State of Illinois has announced additional restrictions on businesses that may effect Funeral and Memorial Services. By directives set forth by the State of Illinois, services are now limited to 50 attendees. We will continue to work with our client families on ways to memorialize loved ones while adhering to the state’s mandates. We strongly feel that each family should have the right to bury their loved one in a personalized manner that helps them find peace and closure while celebrating their loved ones unique and precious life, personality, accomplishments, and interests. We appreciate your patience and understanding regarding the state’s restrictions on your services.

Please note that mask wearing and social distancing are still required to attend or participate in funeral or memorial services. We will also continue to work with our client families to navigate through the closures and restrictions imposed by or on religious institutions, such as churches, synagogues, and mosques.

We are happy to report that throughout this pandemic, we have had no positive tests among our staff or our guests, nor have any contact tracers tracked any Covid-19 cases to our services. As funeral professionals, our funeral directors and embalming staff have been extensively trained in the mitigation and containment of contagious diseases, including, but not limited to Coronaviruses. Please rest assured that we have taken a multitude of precautions to protect you, your family, and the community at large.
