Welcome to




Currently public graveside services are allowed in New York State. Funeral and memorial services must remain private for the family only and can be more than 10 people but they must be immediate family and social distancing and face coverings must be enforced.  Drive-by calling hours are now permitted and the Department of Health recently started to allow calling hours but only 10 people total at a time are allowed inside the funeral home. This makes it difficult to have visitations and we recommend holding off on calling hours until the restrictions are removed. Funeral homes are supposed to be fully functional once again in Phase 4 of the reopening process.

Peace be with you during these trying times,                                                                                                                          Mike and Ross
