During this time of uncertainty, we want to reassure our families we are still here to serve you by honoring the life of your loved one. On May 18, the Arkansas Department of Health will change the rules for funeral attendance. Up to 50 people will be allowed per service. There are basic health practices we must seriously follow in order to remain in compliance with the CDC.
We will designate appropriate seating areas in order to practice social distancing. We ask that everyone in attendance bring and wear their own face mask. Unfortunately, the current climate means we must skip some time-honored traditions. We are accustomed to comforting the grieving by offering handshakes or hugs. We ask for your cooperation in abstaining from these practices. We will raise our current high health standards and will disinfect every room and surface before and after each gathering. In addition, we will provide guests with hand sanitizing stations.
We at Smith Family Funeral Home will do everything possible to continue to celebrate and honor the life of your loved one. Though we are troubled by the circumstances that surround us we can have hope in knowing that together we will make it through this crisis.
Thank you for your kindness, cooperation, and support. We love you.
Jim & Kathy Smith
