My name is Kevin Murphy, I am a licensed funeral director residing in Western New York. I have worked in the funeral industry for over twenty years and have spent time in several funeral homes. During this time, I have realized that families were not being “served� completely. Some problems include: time constraints, workload of the funeral home, knowledge of personnel, or other reasons. That is why I have decided to dedicate my time serving and educating families in an individual and unique way. My goal is to ease the stress of a very emotional time by making sure that all the details of the services you select are accurately documented for the time of need.

Sincerely,


Kevin V. Murphy

Frequently Asked Questions
A funeral consultant acts as a mentor and advocate for a family, walking them through every step of the arrangement process explaining options and costs available at each step. They can help 
families make decisions when they are unsure, help keep them within their budget, and most importantly to make sure that they don’t forget anything. This enables families to make more informed and confident decisions in planning their own or a loved one’s funeral.
Many people would prefer to discuss funeral arrangements in the comfort of their home, among family members, or perhaps even over a cup of coffee. There is no need to dress up and sit in an office trying to make expensive decisions on the fly while not completely understanding the terminology and pricing policies.

Based on recent research, when asked, approximately 85% of all funeral directors cited “emotional overspending� as the key reason that funerals cost so much. 
Why? Because most people wait until the last minute and do not have the input of the deceased or the knowledge of available options so they overspend to avoid family disputes and guilt. Planning for a funeral is never easy. Most people are overwhelmed and unfamiliar with the process.  

Many people are afraid to talk about funeral planning until they have no choice. This is why choosing a funeral consultant is important. It is a personalized service tailored to your family and your loved one’s wishes, requests, and needs. So, when the time does come, most of the arrangements have already been completed and the family can focus on grieving instead of stressing about making the “right� decisions.
