A New Future for Funeral Service
My name is Don Terry, I am a fully licensed Florida Funeral Director and Embalmer, I am in my 33rd year in funeral service, and I am the owner and Funeral Director In Charge of All Veterans~All Families, Funerals & Cremations. We serve Veterans and the entire non-veteran community as well.
In today’s economy many families are finding it more and more challenging to have meaningful funeral services for their loved ones. Our company has evolved to make services affordable for all. All Veterans~All Families is not a funeral home, it is a Funeral Service Company. We are fully licensed by the state of Florida as a funeral establishment.
We meet with our families at their home or at our modern arrangement office at 7 South Lime Ave., Sarasota. Because All Veterans-All Families Funerals & Cremations is not burdened with the high cost of a traditional funeral home building, real estate, multiple vehicles and large staff, our families can still arrange full visitations and funeral services held at churches or appropriate venues at a savings of close to 60%. Simple cremation can be completed far more cost effectively than the standard funeral home cost. We also provide graveside burial services at local cemeteries and offer worldwide forwarding. We have a strong focus on our Veterans and their family members. They receive preferred pricing, we feel they deserve it. With this in mind, we still provide a highly cost effective style of meaningful final arrangements for our entire community. Please feel free to visit our website or to call us anytime we will be glad to answer any question or be of any assistance to you or your organization.
