As the only funeral home in Southern California to offer services for people as well as pets, we often get to appreciate the unique relationships people have with their four-legged friends. Our own dog, Lola, is a bereavement pug who works with us in our office and helps people who are experiencing grief. Come by our showroom to meet Lola.
