Notice to Our Families

UPDATE:

Please call our office for the most up-to-date information.


First, we are closely monitoring and following all guidelines from the CDC, National Funeral Directors Association (NFDA), California Funeral Directors Association (CFDA), as well as all local and state emergency services. .


Effective immediately, Alhiser-Comer Mortuary, will only offer private services, burials and final-goodbyes. Families will be instructed by our directors on how best to limit the number of family members gathered at any one-time at our facilities. Unfortunately, the general public will be unable to attend these private gatherings as we are limited.  If the family wishes we will offer an online Tribute Wall which will allow the public to express their condolences and show their support. We also actively encourage our community to pray for the deceased and their families. Your expressions of love, phone calls of support, and notes of encouragement can and will provide comfort at this time.

We are now offering a service called Hugs From Home that will give those not attending a funeral service the chance to still share their words of love and support. Simply call our office or email us at [email protected] and leave your message of condolence. These will then be handwritten and attached to a balloon or flower. These balloons and flowers will fill our chapel as a representation of hugs for the families who are unable to attend. They will be able to read your heartfelt messages and know that many others are there with them in spirit.


We have set in place new measures to help protect and accommodate members of the public. We will make every effort to accommodate families in making arrangements and conducting services in any capacity needed to ensure their safety and comfort while honoring their loved one. If you would prefer to make arrangements remotely please contact our office and we will give you further instruction. Masks will be required inside the building.  Please see a staff member with any questions or concerns.


In order to avoid compromising the health of our visitors, we have placed reminders throughout our funeral home to minimize physical contact as recommended by the CDC. We continue, as always, to provide hand sanitizer throughout our facilities as well as enacting extra cleanings in all of our public areas.


We will post and follow all updates and guidelines that we receive from the CDC, NFDA, CFDA to keep families informed.
Again, our family and staff are here to serve, protect and honor each family as we have been for over 120 years.  If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to call the funeral home.


Megan Comer, and the Staff of Alhiser-Comer Mortuary
