The staff of Sykes Funeral Home offer a variety of options to meet your financial needs and wishes. Families should explore all options with their funeral director when making arrangements.

  • Be an informed consumer. Don’t be reluctant to ask questions.
  • Today’s funeral director offers a variety of options to meet your financial needs and wishes. Families should discuss all options with their funeral director when making arrangements.
  • When selecting a funeral director, choose one who is licensed and has a good reputation in the community. Give thought to this decision as you would when choosing a doctor, attorney or other professional.
  • Be prepared! Avoid the burden of making decision while under emotional stress by organizing details with your funeral director ahead of time. Remember … preplanning doesn’t necessarily mean prepaying.
