It is not always possible to pay respects in person, so we hope that this small token will help.
Offer a gift of comfort and beauty to a family suffering from loss.
A gift to your family, sparing them hard decisions at an emotional time.

A native of Waterford, Nick is a 2001 graduate of LaSalle Institute in Troy. He received his BSBA from Catholic University in Washington, DC in 2005 and earned his degree in Mortuary Science from Hudson Valley Community College in 2006. Today, he is an active volunteer at St. Mary of the Assumption Church in Waterford as well as at the Waterford Knights of Columbus Council #237.
He is also a Certified Preplanning Consultant, which is a nationally recognized distinction awarded to knowledgeable individuals who are committed to provide ethical and caring advance planning services for all families. “Those who have earned the CPC designation have achieved a unique career distinction that is highly valued by families that want to plan meaningful funerals in advance,” according to Colleen Murphy Klein.
