Families who have lost loved ones still need and appreciate the support from family and friends. Please remember that you can leave online condolences for families to view on our website: www.valleyfs.com. Sending cards to families as well as phone calls is also a safe way of communicating and sharing your condolences. Many local businesses are also offering to deliver food to families rather than you taking it to their houses.  

  • We also have employees answering the phones 24 hours a day if you have questions or need assistance.

We understand this is a difficult and uncertain time for all and we can assure that we are working hard to clean and maintain a safe environment for all who enter our facility. Together, we will get through this difficult time.
