We are here for families before, during and after the funeral. Our staff can recommend programs, counselors and therapists in our area who specialize in coping with grief. We can assist with death benefits, social security, insurance information, and more.

Losing a loved one is one of life’s most difficult moments. The weeks and months after the funeral is often be the hardest. Let Bauknecht-Altmeyer support and guide you through this time.

For immediate support and to learn more about the grieving process, view our Guiding Grief Interactive Support Video.
