Experience color and light in times of darkness

 It is our honor and privilege to display the memories and moments of your loved one’s life in a one-of-a-kind way. You will be surrounded in comfort by the one-of-a-kind display unique to your loved one. This experience allows your family, friends and guests to escape their grief and sadness and reminisce about all of the loving memories of your loved one. We can proudly say that The Burns Garfield Life Celebration Home is the only funeral home in New York State that offers “A Room With A View,” exclusive remembrance technology. We invite you to attend the experience for yourself. Please call us if you would like to witness this world-class projection display in person.

Burns Garfield Family Guide

We promise to honor, remember, and celebrate every life that comes into our care. We understand that no two people are the same and from our first interactions with your family, we want to begin learning about the uniqueness of your loved one. One way we begin to co-create is by giving you a healing tool called the Family Guide. The guide is designed to help you start to share information about your loved one with us. We will then pull the details from the guide and begin customizing your loved one’s Life Celebration.

Sharing a Life Story

We believe writing an obituary is both a great honor and a great responsibility...  Good obituaries are about life, not death. The obituary of a loved one should provide a keepsake and invoke fond memories and publicly declare that the deceased had a real impact on the world.
