CRITICAL COVID-19 UPDATE: Our job as funeral directors is to provide services to help families and friends when a death occurs, and protect the public heath. This includes the people who call us to assist with services, the greater community, and the people with whom we interact during the course of our work such as healthcare providers, florists and the funeral home, cemetery, casket, vault, crematory, maintenance and monument service personnel. We will review options for services based on the requests of family and friends, taking into account the currect government guidelines which change often.
Casket burial, cremation and viewing are all options. Houses of worship and funeral homes are now allowed to offer services at 40% capacity. However please keep in mind all venues have to maintain social distancing so the 40% number may not be possible or in the best interest of safety. Also openings are not mandatory and will be based on timelines set by each venue.
Currently the US Army Honors Team is the only branch of the military offering honors at the cemetery. At the conclusion the flag is placed on the casket, headstone or stand rather than being handed directly to a family member. The National Cemetery in Bourne and the state veterans cemeteries in Agawam and Winchendon are operating on a very limited basis. In our experience the attendance regulations vary in all private and public cemeteries and are changing as time goes on. Families will be informed of the cemetery policy when making final arrangements.
We will continue do our best for all concerned,
Sincerely, Henry and Kathy Boyle

A Word about Flowers: In Massachusetts, funeral homes cannot sell flowers so we do not offer that service through our web site. To ensure quality work, prompt service and timely deliver we encourage you to order flowers directly through a local florist rather though national company websites. You may call the funeral home at 508-875-3106 and we can provide the name and number of the florist the family has chosen.
