As a remote mountain town, having flowers delivered can be challenging. That is why we have arranged for our local florist to take orders directly on this site. Click on the obituary page. Then click on the individual's obituary. At the top right there is a button "Flowers & Gifts", click on this and you will be able to select your flowers and write a message to accompany them. The florist will deliver your order to the funeral home or church as appropriate.


Traditional headstones may be ordered through two companies located in the Colorado Springs:

Social Security

After the death certificate is completed, the funeral home informs Social Security of the individual's passing, by mailing a "Statement of Death by Funeral Director" SSA-721 form to the local SS office. This is the legal notification of death.  

To receive benefits, you must apply to Social Security. You may do this by visiting any Social Security office or call to schedule an appointment. To speak to a SS representative call (800) 772-1213 weekdays between 7 am - 7 pm. At other times you may leave a message and you will be called back.
