Thank you so much for your help and support in this difficult time.

Dear Selma & Mr. McKinnis:We want to thank you for all of your help and goodness. May our Lord always watch over you! Again thank you from the bottom of my family's heart. The Family of Diana Sandoval

Very, very pleased with Riverside Funeral Home. The staff treated my family and I with nothing but kindness and respect. Chris Trujillo was the Funeral Director that took care of us and never lost focus on our needs and was very sympathetic and caring during the entire process. We were a little worried after reading some of the past reviews but after prices shopping we found this funeral home to be the lowest around...The service was top notch and would HIGHLY recommend this establishment to EVERYONE! Sincerely, Manuel Apodaca

Planning a Funeral


Life Choices

Most of us plan ahead in life. We plan for our wedding, our children's education, family vacations, and other significant expected life events. We also plan for the unexpected events of life by purchasing home, auto and medical insurance.

Understanding the benefits of pre-planning has prompted many to take the step to pre-plan their own arrangements.

Please call us at 800-956-9995 to set up an appointment to discuss pre-planning with a caring professional.

Why Pre-Plan?

Peace of Mind
Many who have undergone the emotional strain of arranging a funeral within hours of losing a loved one have made the choice to pre-plan their own funeral. Doing so lifts the burden from their loved ones by relieving decision-making pressure at a time of grief and emotional stress.

Personal Choice
Funeral arrangements are a deeply personal choice. Pre-planning provides you with the time needed to make practical, detailed decisions that reflect your standards, lifestyle, taste and budget. And we assure you and your family that the choices you make will be carried out as planned.

Lower Costs
When you finalize your plan, we can advise you of the total cost. You do not have to set aside funds for your plan, but doing so protects you against escalating funeral costs. By locking in today's funeral costs and ensuring that the necessary funds are set aside, you help relieve yourself of unnecessary future worry and your survivors of an unexpected expense.

Immediate Arrangements

In Time of Need

We understand that making the many decisions which come at a time of loss can be difficult. We offer our support by providing you with options as you consider making immediate arrangements.

Please call us at 800-956-9995 to make arrangements in person with a caring, professional Funeral Director.
