  • The flag for their branch of service flown on our flagpole.
  • The flag for their branch of service placed at the end of their casket or next to the table with their urn.
  • For visitations with body present, their flag will be meticulously folded and placed on the end of the casket in the manner Daniel learned from his father, U.S. Army Reserve veteran and funeral director Irving R. Symonds, Jr.
  • The seal for their branch of service will be displayed on the doors of our hearse.
  • Outdoor display and the gift of keepsake American flags and Branch flag on seven-foot poles in partnership with the Elgin-based nonprofit, True Patriots Care.
