"Love is like a butterfly in so many, many ways. It brings a bit of sunshine even on gloomy days. It makes our souls feel lighter just to know it's there.

A Letter to My Community Family
General Manager and Funeral Director, McGuinness Funeral Home
A Letter to My Community Family,
Perhaps it was the way a Dad hugged his child after they released a butterfly into our garden. Or maybe it was when a wife with tears in her eyes kissed a white balloon before she let it soar towards heaven. Or it could have been the breathtaking display of patriotism that our local Boy and Girl Scout troops created on our lawn honoring the lives lost on September 11th. Whatever glimpses of strength and hope we witness, they are the reasons we embrace our community and give back to those who so graciously support us.
The McGuinness family’s purpose is to make a lasting, positive difference in the lives of our guests. We are committed to providing excellence in all we do. Here are just a few ways we exceed your expectations:
- Building relationships - Our dedication to local youth programs and senior care services is seen in our sponsorship of sports teams, civic organizations and recreational activities for all ages.
- Bringing comfort - You can count on us to listen when you need to be heard, to give you the resources you need, and to give you the assurance that you are not alone.
- Bridging hearts - Our remembrance events (Butterfly Release, Balloon Release, A Heart Full of Memories) let you know that although your heart may be heavy, we are here to help bear the weight and give you peace and hope.
The McGuinness family has served the community for more than 60 years, and providing personal caring service continues to be our top priority.
