Important Information on Covid-19

November 11, 2020

We gather, with caution.


As gathering regulations have once again changed, 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.

We will continue to limit gatherings at our Abingdon, Bel Air, and Jarrettsville locations to the mandated capacities. 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 continue to 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 room. 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.


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

We understand that this continues to be 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.

Safety Enhancements:

  • Remote Arrangements - Arrangements continue to be made from the comfort of a family’s home by using a combination of online and teleconference methods.
  • Livestreaming/Recording - We have expanded our ability to livestream services within our facilities and/or record from a remote location. When requested, services may be posted on the web page of the deceased on our website.
  • Online guest book - Everyone is encouraged to visit the online guest book found on the web page for the deceased. In addition to signing the book, you may post a message to the family and include a picture or video.
  • Hand sanitizers - Hand sanitizers are present throughout our facilities.
  • Facemasks - for the safety of your family and ours, we require everyone visiting our facilities to wear a facemask. If you might forget yours, we will be glad to furnish one.
  • Air Purification Systems - We have currently installed air purification systems in our ductwork that utilize an ionization process to purify the air being circulated through all our facilities.
  • Social Distancing - We can accommodate guests for visitations and funeral services at all our locations with measures in place to ensure safe social distancing. In most cases, we can accommodate additional guests by utilizing an onsite live video feed in an adjacent area.
  • Crowd Control Devices - Placed in rooms for social distancing.
  • Disinfecting - Before, during and after each visitation and service, all public areas are wiped with disinfection wipes or disinfection sprays with paper towels including, but not limited to, chairs, doorknobs, handles, door push plates, light switches, bathroom flush handles and bathroom faucets.
  • Clean pens - Are made available by the register books.

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 continue to be here to serve you. It is an honor to be 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.
