Important Information on Covid-19

June 15, 2020

It is time to gather again.


As gathering restrictions continue to ease, we would like to share our latest plans with you for the near future.

Our goal has always been to balance the safety of our client families and their friends as well as our valued team, while providing a high level of service for the tribute of their loved ones.

In keeping with the latest Maryland State Executive Order, funeral homes fall under the guidelines that religious facilities are following. We have assessed our facilities and made provisions to allow for safe social distancing.

Funeral Services:

We can accommodate guests for funeral services at all our locations with measures in place to ensure safe social distancing. At our Abingdon and Jarrettsville locations, we can accommodate additional guests by utilizing an onsite live video feed in an adjacent chapel.


We can accommodate a public visitation at any of our facilities with measures in place to ensure safe social distancing.

We continue to have great success with our livestreaming services. This has allowed family and friends to be a part of the tribute from the safety of their homes. This service is offered at no cost to families who would like to participate in this option.

Please remember that we will be offering the option of a public memorial service for all those who would like to gather with their family and friends at a future date.

We understand that this is a large departure from our tradition of community gathering to support the family. In these special times, we thank you for your understanding that. We know that it is everyone's desire to get back to a more normal environment as soon as possible.

Please take note that we are doing everything we can to make your experience with us as safe as possible. We have currently installed air purification systems that are meant to cleanse the air as it is circulated through all of our facilities.

Arrangements continue to be made remotely with a combination of online and teleconference. We have expanded our ability to webcast services.

For Visitors, please be advised:

  • An Online Guestbook is available for your convenience. You can access this by visiting the "Tribute Wall" on the obituary page.
  • Be reminded that if you attend any services, we ask that physical contact, such as shaking hands or hugging, be discouraged and social distancing is observed.
  • Hand sanitizers are present throughout our facilities.
  • All persons entering our facilities are required to wear face masks as will be our team.
  • Social distancing measures are being followed at all our facilities.

Again, our family and entire team are here to serve you. It is an honor to ba a part of creating a tribute for your loved one. We will continue to work to balance everyone's safety while providing the special tribute that your loved one deserves.
