At Roper and Sons Funeral Home, we understand that a funeral or memorial service for your loved one is a positive first step in the grieving process. In the days, weeks, and months following a service, people continue to need others to lean on for understanding, encouragement, and guidance.

Our goal is to address the healing of our community as a whole, providing grief support services in response to a need, while striving to change the way we as a culture view grief. That is why Roper and Sons offers a common place and a comforting environment for expressing emotions through each phase of the grieving process.
