***At Hutcheson’s Memorial Chapel, we know it’s our duty to protect the health and well-being of not only the families we serve, but also our staff.
As of March 25, 2020
HARALSON COUNTY BOARD OF HEALTH PASSED A "SHELTER IN PLACE". UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE FUNERALS INDOORS ARE PROHIBITED. WE CAN HOLD GRAVESIDE SERVICES WITH 10 IMMEDIATE FAMILY MEMBERS OR LESS. WE ENCOURAGE MAKING ARRANGEMENTS OVER THE PHONE. IF YOU WANT TO COME IN TO MAKE ARRANGEMENTS WE ALLOW 2 FAMILY MEMBERS.
We strongly and respectfully urge you to follow the CDC’s guidelines, The White House guidelines, as well as the following:
-If you are feeling under the weather in any way, please stay home and send the family an online condolence instead
-Be consistent in washing your hands or using hand sanitizer with an alcohol percentage over 60%
-Instead of our usual hugs and handshakes, please use the elbow bump or a simple waive
-Sneeze into a tissue and throw it away, or sneeze into your elbow.
-If you have business that can be conducted via phone, please call us, instead of stopping by the office
While doing our part to keep the virus exposure down and increasing our sanitizing procedures in the building, we will remain available should anyone need us at any time.
With the family’s permission we will upload the tribute videos to our website under their obituary. We will also begin live streaming the services to our Facebook page, should anyone wish to attend from a distance.
We will continue to monitor COVID-19 and how best to serve our families during this time. ***
Patty and I established our funeral home in 1983 as the fulfillment of a dream to serve the people of Haralson County and surrounding areas. Over the years we have been honored to serve thousands of families in their darkest hour. Along side us, our daughter and son-in-law, Kathryn and Chase Croft are both licensed funeral directors, embalmers and certified crematory operators.
It is our honor to help you arrange a fitting tribute to remember your loved one. Whether you choose traditional burial or cremation as the method of final disposition, we can make your service truly personal. You can also be well assured, that whatever you choose, burial or cremation, the casket, urn and/or other memorial items you choose are of the highest quality available in that price range.
Technology has changed and advanced to the point where on-line guest registration is as routine as making a phone call used to be, but please be reminded that the computer cannot see, touch, feel, smell, hug, cry or say I'm sorry. We encourage you to personally participate during the hours of visitation and the funeral when possible. Remember that there is only one funeral per person.
We stand ready to assist you in any way possible. You can take comfort in knowing that we have a licensed funeral director available to assist you 24 hours per day.
Danny Hutcheson, CFSP
