We start each encounter with the most important question: How do you see your loved one being memorialized? Over time, as funerals and memorial services get more personalized, the answers have changed. Customs have changed too, and we see more people planning their own final arrangements in advance.

As the fourth-generation owner, hearing, “You and your staff were just incredible,” makes me proud and grateful. Whether at-need or preneed, the Higgins family is here to serve you.
