Fallen Heroes Program

The Fallen Heroes Program is our family's commitment to honor the men and women who make the ultimate sacrifice in the line of duty.

This includes those brave individuals who are serving in the Armed Forces or serve as Police Officers, Firefighters, or EMS Personnel.

Our Fallen Heroes Program applies to anyone killed in action in the Armed Forces or who dies in the line of duty as a Police Officer, a Firefighter or an EMS Person.

These are all endeavors that are above and beyond the risk that most Americans assume.

Therefore, in recognition of this exceptional commitment by these special individuals, should the need arise, we are proud to offer any or all of the following services at no cost to the loved ones of a Fallen Hero at any of our family owned facilities.

Funds that may be paid by a government agency or other source for any of the services listed here would be made available to the family or estate of the Fallen Hero.

Respectfully,

Bob Lomison, President
