After careful and diligent consideration, in order to protect the health and safety of our families, staff and the community during the COVD19 outbreak. The Hill & Kunselman Funeral Home, Inc. will no longer offer our customary traditional public visitations or public funeral services, until this outbreak passes. We are following the CDC’s guidelines and taking the necessary steps to mitigate the spread of this disease within our community, by limiting the size of the funeral service gatherings.
Understanding visitations, funeral services or memorial services are an important part of celebrating the lives of deceased loved ones.
We will be offering the following alternatives.
*Currently, private immediate family services, are permitted under State guidelines. CDC recommends no more that 10 persons gathered at a time.
