Our Funeral Services
Pre-Planning, Cremation & Other Services in the Albany Area
Over the years, we’ve learned something very valuable, yet largely unrecognized by the general public: a funeral, memorial service, or celebration of life offers family and friends the opportunity to say goodbye to a loved one, and sets the stage for the healing process which follows.
It doesn’t have to be an elaborate event. The most important part is in the “coming together” with others to share memories, and receive comfort from one another. It can be a very simple ceremony or one where the personality and lifetime achievements of your loved one are showcased.
Whatever you think would be appropriate; we promise to be with you at every turn to help you plan a service that celebrates your loved one's life in a meaningful way. Our funeral home staff is always standing by to cater to clients throughout Albany, NY; Troy. NY; Clifton Park, NY; and beyond.
Here, you will find information on the services we can provide your family after losing a loved one. If you would prefer to speak to someone directly, please call us at (518) 237-8296. We will be pleased to share commemoration ideas.
