We cannot ease your pain,
but we can ease your burden.

We cannot eliminate the numerous
difficult choices and arrangements to be made,
but we can provide impartial advice and discrete counseling

We cannot decrease your sorrow and grief,
but we can provide a completely dignified funeral
within your financial limitations,
while expressing our concern for your welfare.

We cannot alter what is past,
but we can honor your memories
by showing the utmost compassion and understanding
for the living during this most trying of times.
