“When my mother-in-law, father, mother and most recently, my husband died, I had Mr. John Sommese of The Simonson Funeral Home make my arrangements. Mr. Sommese is a very caring and wonderful person. He made four very difficult times in my life much easier. I would recommend his services to everyone.”
“Simonson understands your situation in difficult times and treats you with respect and with consideration of your feelings.”

Frequently Asked Questions
Q. Do you have to have a vault to be buried?
A: Our state laws do not require a vault for burial. However, most cemeteries do require an outside container for the casket. The purpose is two-fold: First, the outside receptacle keeps the earth from settling, thus preventing the unevenness of the land which makes the cemetery less attractive. Second, it allows cemetery caretakers to more easily maintain the landscape, which is an advantage to you in a more beautiful cemetery at a lower cost. A vault provides more durability than a grave liner. The vault is usually selected by the family because of their desire for further protection of their loved one in addition to the casket. There are many types of vaults and we would be happy to show you the differences.
