Why Us?

In a nutshell? Experience, professionalism, compassion, and empathy.

We've learned a lot over many years. Like how to present options without overwhelming. And how to meet the needs of many caring parties. People come to us in difficult times, and we respond kindness, calmness and expertise. Our goal is to create a beautiful occasion and make you feel welcome, always. We spend our days planning with families. We stay up to date with industry developments. And we make hard times a little easier.

Learn the legacy.

In 1993, my desire to build a funeral home in the West Cobb area began.  I decided to build in an area that did not have a building specifically designed and built to operate as a funeral home.

Our goal has been to build and grow with the needs of our community, providing service to anyone that may need assistance with the respect to the financial and special needs that sometime arise with the death of a loved one.

As our community grows around us, we endeavor to do the same.  In 2008, upon realizing that our community needed a local crematory, we established our on-site cremation center.  With that expansion, all of your services are handled and managed by our trained staff, and your loved one never leaves our care.  Our commitment to you is backed by our Cremation with Confidence guarantee.

Our desire is to stay locally owned and family based so that we serve all the needs of our community where we worship, play and live. 

Who We Are

Meet our staff. Members of the local community make everything that happens possible.
