Providing services to families that are appropriate and meaningful at an affordable price are the hallmarks of our business. As a funeral home in Manheim, part of our mission is to exceed the expectations of the families we serve and to assist them in planning ceremonies that celebrate and give meaning to life. In order to accomplish this mission, we not only listen to families with our ears, but perhaps more importantly, we listen with our hearts. This type of listening enables us to guide families in creating a tribute that is as special and unique as the person being remembered. We are also committed to treating everyone as we would like ourselves and our families to be treated. Families have found our staff to be patient, kind, understanding, and gentle… qualities that are necessary during the loss of a loved one.
