Jones Memorial Funeral Home offers affordable funerals to River Region families

LULING — Alfred Jones has been in the funeral/transportation industry for more than 20 years, and he knows the importance of treating families and their loved ones with dignity and respect during one of the most difficult periods of life’s journey.

The River Region Chamber of Commerce recently hosted a ribbon cutting ceremony for Jones Memorial Funeral Home, located at 811 Paul Maillard Road in Luling. At this location, Jones hopes to provide families of St. Charles Parish and surrounding communities a warm and comforting environment where they can find support while saying goodbye.

The full-service funeral home offers custom ceremonies with packages to fit any budget. This includes traditional/non-traditional funerals and cremation services.

Jones Memorial Funeral Home also specializes in military and veteran services to honor those who made sacrifices to defend this country’s freedom and way of life. Families are provided with a United States flag and headstones/markers through the Department of Veterans Affairs at no cost. Veterans from all military branches qualify for a military funeral, regardless of rank or whether they died in combat.

“My team and I are grateful for the opportunity to walk alongside our families at this very meaningful moment in their lives and will always be available to assist you with any questions or concerns you may have,” Jones said. “We will also serve as a support system after the loss of your family member and will be here as a pillar of support for you to rely on.”

According to Jones, funeral services are important to the human experience because they help us acknowledge a loved one has died and give us a chance to say goodbye. They offer continuity and a sense of hope for the living while connecting the bereaved to an active support system of family, friends and community.
