Professional Affiliations

In this ever changing world, it is important to remain involved, not only in this community, but also in the rest of the country. With the goal of providing unique services, we have joined two international organization. These groups allow us to see how services are conducted in other areas of the country and the world. Our furneral directors now have the information on new trends that can better serve the Omaha and Sarpy County communities.

These associations have also allowed us to have a contact in most parts of the United States and the world. These independent funeral homes assist us on a regular basis when a local resident dies out of town. Having someone we can count on in a far away place can give you peace of mind when a family member dies out of town.

Community involvement is important to us and in this area we believe in supporting and promoting organizations that help improve our lives. Locally we are members of the following:
