COVID-19

At Cole Funeral Home, we remain committed to the health and safety of the families we serve, our employees, and our community. We want to assure you that we continue to take proactive measures to help prevent the spread of any potential illness. We are monitoring the situation closely by following local, state and national guidelines. The Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) recently issued the following guidance to funeral service:

  • You can still have a funeral or visitation.
  • Decedents can be embalmed using proper industry practices.
  • Decedents can be buried or cremated, and we comply with all state and local requirements. 

We want to reassure you that we’ll continue to maintain our high health standards. We are committed to serving all families and we have asked any employee running a fever or having flu-like symptoms to stay home.

Veterans Headstones


The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) furnishes upon request, at no charge to the applicant, a Government headstone or marker for the unmarked grave of any deceased eligible veteran in any cemetery around the world, regardless of their date of death.   For eligible veterans that died on or after Nov. 1, 1990, VA may also provide a headstone or marker for graves that are already marked with a private headstone or marker. When the grave is already marked, applicants will have the option to apply for either a traditional headstone or marker, or a new device (available spring 2009).  

Flat markers in granite, marble, and bronze and upright headstones in granite and marble are available. The style chosen must be consistent with existing monuments at the place of burial. Niche markers are also available to mark columbaria used for inurnment of cremated remains.

When burial or memorialization is in a national cemetery, state veterans' cemetery, or military post/base cemetery, a headstone or marker will be ordered by the cemetery officials based on inscription information provided by the next of kin or authorized representative.

Spouses and dependents are not eligible for a Government-furnished headstone or marker unless they are buried in a national cemetery, state veteran's cemetery, or military post/base cemetery.

Note: There is no charge for the headstone or marker itself, however arrangements for placing it in a private cemetery are the applicant's responsibility and all setting fees are at private expense.
