An important message to the families we serve,

As you all know our country is still currently facing a serious health crisis -- different than any of us have seen in our lifetimes. We have been managing through it carefully and cautiously. We have adapted to the need to make changes in the way we live our lives to limit the spread of the disease and protect the most vulnerable members of our community. Some of the changes certainly have not been easy or convenient but we have managed to continue to care for families and perform funeral services.

In response to guidelines from the health authorities we are still making a few temporary changes to ensure the protection of both our staff members and the families we serve. For the duration of the crisis our offices will be open only by appointment, and processing times for some documents continue to be slower than normal. So, please call ahead! (Of course, we'll  always respond immediately in the event of a death.)

One thing that we have continued unwaveringly is our commitment to provide the best service possible to the families who call on us in their time of need. That's been constant for over a century, through floods, depressions, tornadoes, blizzards and other disasters. Working together we will get through this as well.

May God bless you and your families,

Jack W. Stickle, II
