NOVA is a local family owned funeral service that provides a professional, dignified service to people not unlike yourself who have chosen the simple alternative to expensive funerals.
NOVA can provide any type of service you wish; from direct cremation or immediate burial to a traditional service. Regardless of the type of service you select, you will be offered lower cost than other funeral homes. We have managed to keep our overhead cost down insuring the most economical rates while still offering a highly professional service.
NOVA Cremation Service has prepared this informative brochure to introduce ourselves to you and provide helpful information on death, dying and to answer any questions that may arise.
There is no question that a funeral director is in the business to make money. As sinful as this sounds, this is how we support our families and support a business that will be there to meet your needs.
For most of us, it is a chosen profession. For myself, it is a life-long commitment to providing a caring family business. Funeral directors have their own parents, spouse and children die just like everyone else. The pain we feel and tears we shed are genuine. Perhaps this brings us closer to your feelings.
I have had so many people ask me, “How can you stand being around all that grief?” The truth is, it is very rewarding assisting a family who may not know where to turn. I always appreciate the genuine thanks received.
I’m certainly not the only reputable funeral director out there.
I do believe that I provide a needed economical service to our community. You, as a consumer, need only check us out, but need to feel at ease using our local family service.
Thank you for considering NOVA Cremation Service to act as your Funeral Director at this time of need. Should you need additional information, please do not hesitate to call.
