HOW WE ARE PROTECTING YOU FROM CORONAVIRUS CONCERNS
The families we serve are always our top priority. During confusing and concerning times such as the current COVID-19 event, we want to share our plans with you. We want to assure you that we are all in this together.
First, we are closely monitoring and following all guidelines from the CDC, national and state funeral associations, and local and state emergency services. We are at 75% capacity for gatherings in our chapel and are abiding by each church facility rules for those services. We are prepared to offer families the choice of webcasting the funeral for remote viewing by family and friends or holding a private service at the time of death followed by a public memorial service at a later date.
We have set in place new measures to help protect and accommodate the elderly, sick and members of the public. We will make every effort to accommodate families in planning arrangements and conducting services in any capacity needed to ensure their safety and comfort while honoring their loved one.
Arrangements can be made by phone remotely, in person or by email correspondence.
We are webcasting all of our chapel funeral services.
We encourage the use of our online guestbooks for condolence messages to the family.
We have placed reminders throughout our funeral homes to ask that physical contact, such as shaking hands or hugging, be limited with family members.
Our large gathering places will be set up to allow social distancing.
We continue, as always, to provide professional hand sanitizer stations throughout our facilities and have enacted extra cleaning in all public areas.
Again, our family and staff are here to serve, protect and honor each family as we have been for over 80 years. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to call Charles or Preston Rader at (903) 753-3373 or (903) 657-7570
Under the Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act of 2021 and the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021, FEMA will provide financial assistance for COVID-19-related funeral expenses incurred after January 20, 2020.
