When someone dies, what do I need?
When someone dies many families do not know what to do. Pettett Funeral Home is here to help you in completing all of the details of making funeral arrangements.
Our funeral home has made a check list of things that we possibly will need from you or your family when making funeral arrangements.
These are only a few items and our funeral home will discuss all the other details with your family; but if you have any question, please do not hesitate to call the funeral home at any time.
