Plan Ahead

Advanced planning is a thoughtful and considerate act that your loved ones will truly appreciate when the time comes.

Customized Tributes

Customizing the service for your loved one allows you to truly honor their memory with unique and personalized details.


Let me reflect for a minute. When you first get married you talk about a lot of things. When you get older that focus seems to turn to death and burial...yeah, good times.... In planning for this you want someone professional enough to handle all the nuances but sensitive enough to understand the needs of their clients. Ashley is a true professional. It didn't matter what the question was she would always respond. Whether it was at the office or over email she would always get back to us IMMEDIATELY.
If you need funeral planning I certainly would go seek out Ashley. She is fantastic.

Ashley answered so many of our questions. My husband and I are in our late 60's and 70 and wanted to make our funeral arrangements in advance of illness, memory issues or a life unlike the wonderful one we are living at this time. I did not want to go to the funeral home so she came to our home. She shared lots of good information and planning guides. Like preparing wills, this is a process I had not looked forward to but Ashley made it easy, quick and it is now completed. Hopefully this will also makes things much easier for my children who live in Colorado and New Mexico.
Thank you Ashley for your expertise and graciousness. It is most appreciated.

Five stars is not enough for Ashley and Allen Harden Funeral Home. My husband and I who are still in our early 60's decided it was time for preplanning to be done. We had no clue if we would be sad, emotional, or how we would feel doing this meeting while we're still very healthy. Ashley couldn't have put us more at ease. During the process she thoroughly explained everything and answered all our questions. We had just come from across the street purchasing our plots so it was an interesting day to say the least. As Ashley listened to our wishes and gave some suggestions it turned out to be a rather easy and somewhat relief to just get it done. Ashley was so warm and personable you felt like you were talking to a friend. The facility itself doesn't have the dark, dismal, or deep sad feeling some funeral homes have. It's actually very calming and pretty inside. I highly recommend them!
