What our members are saying

"Selected is made up of funeral directors who constantly strive to be better than they are, and when you can associate with those kinds of people, you can only become better yourself. Selected has a fine old tradition, but it also has a contemporary mindset and a realistic appraisal of what independent funeral service is about today. There is a concerted effort to assess how we can adapt to meet the needs of families and continue to thrive in an ever-changing marketplace."
