MCDONALD FUNERAL HOMES - MA

Our philosophy towards funeral service is rooted in the Christian faith...that faith teaches us and we recognize the following about life and death:

That each person and each life lived is unique...that we are each eternal spiritual beings experiencing an imperfect human life...and that the end to that life is inevitable and pre-determined.

When a death occurs, we seek to provide our families the following:

Assistance and guidance in arranging a personalized celebration of the unique life of their loved one... facilitation of a commemorative experience through which the best qualities of the person and fondest memories of that life can be shared with family and friends in an appropriate manner as they see fit... the best facilities and most dignified service through which their wishes can be carried out and the healing process enabled.
