Veteran Funeral option
Glenn and Lorie Addison, owners of Addison Funeral Home, are very grateful to all the men and women who have served in the various armed forces of the United States. When we serve a family whose loved one was a veteran we offer a free grave space for casketed burial in our Tranquility Oaks cemetery. This gives families the peace-of-mind that their loved one will forever be in a perpetual care cemetery maintained to the highest standards. Requirements and guidelines to receive this discount include the following: Addison Funeral Home must conduct the funeral of the veteran whether in our chapel, at the graveside, or at another location of the family's choosing (such as a church); the casket used must be purchased from Addison Funeral Home (our caskets begin at $895); and the outer burial container into which the casket is placed must also be purchased from Addison Funeral Home. Families will need to provide Form DD-214 documenting that the veteran was honorably discharged.
