Scatter Day 8.26.17
Join us on Saturday, August 26th from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. for Scatter Day at Sunset Memorial Park, located at 924 Menaul Blvd NE. Scatter Day is bringing light - and a solution - to a dark problem. After a cremation, the deceased don’t always rest ensconced in a treasured urn or scattered in a favorite spot. The reality is that thousands of people’s cremated remains end up each year in cardboard boxes, stacked in the back of coat closets, or even thrown in the garbage. One in five Americans has human cremated remains in their home, and often that’s not because of an intentional decision. It’s estimated that at least ten thousand people in Albuquerque have loved ones’ remains at home only because they don’t know what else to do with them. During Scatter Day, Sunset Memorial Park and French Funerals and Cremations will have staff on hand to answer questions and help families make arrangements. Families who come to Sunset on Scatter Day can create a unique experience to meet their needs. This event is free to the public.
Funerals as unique as your life
Losing a loved one will never be easy. But French eases the burden not only by what we do, but by what we say and how we say it. Always providing solace in our personal interactions with our customers, we go a step further by inviting them to take charge of a process that before left so many feeling helpless.
By brightening the tone of our message and speaking in a fresh and unexpected way, we ease the trepidation surrounding the topic of death and create a dialogue that empowers people.
By using modest humor, conversational tone and language that is bold, honest and smart, we not only get people to stop avoiding thinking about the inevitable, we inspire them to write a final chapter that is as beautiful as the ones that came before it.
Family owned for 110 years
Demonstrating the same care for our staff that we do with the families we serve, FRENCH was recognized as a Top Work Place for 2017.
FRENCH is a full-service funeral provider serving our community for over 110 years. We also take pride that we remain, and always will remain, one of the few family-owned and operated funeral care providers in central New Mexico. While other firms have retained familiar names, they are in fact regional and corporate conglomerates operating outside of New Mexico. We continue to serve on local boards, volunteer at churches, and neighborhood associations for the community that we live in and raise our families in...right beside yours.
While we recognize that there are a lot of options out there, there is only one opportunity to select the right funeral home. At a time when emotions are tender, receiving guidance by someone who has been around and understands your needs can help you find the perfect service.
