The services of Sossoman Funeral Home and Crematory Center have been identified by all who come there as related to qualities of compassion, solace, brotherly love, and support in times of distress. Time and again the members of the Sossoman’s staff have come to the aid of every soul God has sent to them- no exceptions! What a marvelous achievement and example to all of us. Thank you for that and for the unfailing support you have rendered to our church. May God bless all of you for sustaining your love and devotion to Him!
