Remembering A Life Lived

Twenty years ago-April 19, 1999-we took possession of our funeral service business in White County, Southern IL, consisting of four locations, Carmi (which we made our home) Enfield, Mill Shoals and Norris City. For different reasons, after a few years, we closed Mill Shoals and Norris City, but soon added Mt. Vernon, Posey County, Southern IN (eleven years ago, February 29, 2008).

This leap of faith led us to meet and serve wonderful families, many of whom have become dear friends.

Our children, Mallory and Marc, graduated from Carmi White County High School and have established themselves in the area as teachers, and continue to help us with services on occasion. We are so thankful they made so many great friends and consider Carmi home.............believe me, it was not easy moving two teens!

Our daughters, Courtney (Kevin) and Hillary (Dave) have given us five absolutely beautiful and each unique grandchildren, Griffin, Quinn, Ryan, Brady and Chloe.

Our twenty years in Southern Illinois and Southern Indiana have blessed us in so many ways. Thank you for accepting us, befriending us and putting your trust in us to serve your families.
