**Message from funeral director Kevin
You and your family are largely in control of funeral costs. But
please be realistic and prepared. Due to the depth of services,
merchandise, man power, equipment, and cash advance items that are
being provided to COMPLETE a funeral, even the most basic cremation
can cost about $2,000.00 when everything is added up.
Basic full service funerals can vary from about $6,000 to
$10,000 once you include cemetery costs, casket, vault, and cash
advance items. We tell you this so you can be prepared. Death is
inevitable and not being prepared or educated can be a traumatic
experience. We see it often. When you are not financially prepared,
it makes for a very tough time on family and friends. We offer
complete Pre-Planning options with a financing available for your
convenience. Every family we serve is 100% in control of funeral
costs depending on the services they choose.

equipment to meet all of your requests. There are FOUR areas
of focus when planning at the time of a death. They are
services, merchandise, final disposition, and cash advances. These
make up total funeral costs.

We find that the average complete traditional funeral today is
around $8,500.00 (regardless of the funeral home you choose)
including all standard items listed above. The biggest variables
include the services, casket, vault and cemetery expenses. A very
basic traditional service can be less than $6000 or a very
elaborate one can be more than $15,000. Here at Rogers' Funeral
Home, we specialize in providing excellent, personalized funeral
service to all of our families no matter how much or little you
decide to spend. We offer discounts, but do not consider ourselves
a "discount" funeral home. We are proudly family owned and
operated, not a big corporation from out of state (i.e., Newcomer,
SCI firms), we are members of your community, and we often provide
our personal cell numbers to our family's because we consider you
family and friends. We hope that having a personal relationship
with your funeral director is important to you. Families have
placed their trust in us for over 50 years; we wouldn't still be
here if we did not treat everyone fairly and with friendship.
