Our professionals are dedicated to meeting the needs of families of many faiths and ethnic backgrounds. Our caring staff is available 24 hours a day should you wish to contact us.
A funeral service is an important event in every culture throughout history—to honor the deceased and begin the healing process with friends and family. Restrictions set forth by the Los Angeles County Department of Public Health prohibit indoor funeral services. To better serve families during COVID-19 restrictions, we are offering options for open-air visitations and services throughout our memorial park. Each of these spaces can be tailored specifically to the individual being honored.
