We hope that you find this information useful and that getting to know our funeral home staff helps you choose the right funeral home for your family. Entrusting a deceased loved one into the care of another party is daunting. We want you to make an informed decision with full confidence that everything will be taken care of. At Blue Ridge Funeral Service, the families we serve are top priority.

Most people are not prepared for the death of a loved one. Even when someone’s passing is expected, there are still great challenges associated with accepting they are truly gone. When someone dies, there are numerous decisions that need to be made, family members that must be contacted and plenty of paperwork that should be filled out in a timely fashion. All of this administrative work and legal arrangements, paired with bereavement, can make for a challenging experience. For most, this is the most difficult part of the funeral planning process.  Our experienced funeral directors and funeral home staff understand the difficulties associated with losing a loved one and are always ready to lend a hand when it is needed most. As proud members of this community, we believe it is our duty to give grieving families peace of mind and help with the planning of a meaningful service that will serve as a lasting tribute to the deceased.

Never hesitate to reach out and ask for more information. Part of serving the community involves being there to answer all inquiries concerning our services or funeral planning in general. No matter what you need from us, our team of funeral directors and funeral home staff will have the answer you need.
