Personal Service, Peace of Mind, Pleasant Memories


Grief Resources

Grief ServicesOur first responsibility as a dedicated funeral service establishment is to the families we serve. We are committed to providing families with courteous service, high standards of performance and excellence, which serve as the hallmark of the funeral service.

In today’s world, the funeral service profession, like any other, must adapt to peoples’ changing values and lifestyles. That is why, through our caring services and hospitality, we continually strive for excellence, and remain professional and compassionate in our service to our families.

With our personal service, Metropolitan Funeral Service is committed to providing your family with peace of mind, and lasting pleasant memories.

We are available to answer your questions 24 hours a day by phone, and also by email. We provide this grief resources page on our web site with the hope that in addition to the services we offer, there may be other resources here you find informative and helpful for your needs.
Metropolitan Funeral Service is dedicated to serving our families. We aim to be more than you expect from a funeral home. We are, in fact, a complete resource which families can call upon at anytime…not just at the time of greatest need.

The following national support groups are available to people who may be struggling with loss or other hardships. Your funeral director can offer additional information at your request.
