Veteran Funeral Services – Honoring a Hero

Men and women who serve in the Military do a great honor to our country, they deserved to be honored. One of the ways to honor our veterans is to pay them proper respects as they pass away. Smith Family Funeral Home is privileged to work with military families to develop memorial services that celebrate the life and service of deceased veterans. We are capable of hosting full military services or intimate family gatherings.
