“I wanted to drop you a note to thank you for your kindness, caring, and professionalism dealing with the death of my grandmother, C. S. From the moment you arrived to pick up Gram all the way through to us leaving the cemetery, I was so touched by everyone there. You did a beautiful job and I know Gram would have been pleased. Thank you again and bless you for all you do.”

Military Funeral With Honors: A Tribute to Your Veteran

The Jones family is pleased to pay tribute to our veterans and their families. Whatever your vision of military honors, the Friedrich-Jones and Overman-Jones funeral professionals are skilled at accessing services and advising families on available options for veterans.

A military funeral service is available in coordination with any religious or cultural ceremony, including cremation. Choose a 21-gun salute, horse-drawn vehicle, bagpipes, or taps—our experience with military funerals is vast, and we are privileged to honor those who have served in every branch of the U.S. military.

Personal service in planning and coordinating a veteran’s funeral—our family does it all, including contacting the cemetery, ordering grave markers, and applying for benefits. Allow us to navigate the government maze for you, with the experience and confidence of a skilled professional. Simply call our family at the location nearest you to begin the process.
