We’re excited to start off the new month with the announcement of our most recent partnership with Brooks Lyon Funeral Home (South Boston, VA), Watkins Cooper Lyon Funeral Home, and the Cremation Society of Virginia (both of Clarksville, VA)! The three firms, both owned by Michael Lyon and his wife, Jane, have been serving their communities for decades.
Greg Rollings commented “Like Debbie and myself, Jane and Michael are a husband and wife team that have a strong passion for serving others and that passion is evident by the incredible reputation they’ve built for their businesses. We always look for firms that espouse family values and that look to lift up their communities and we knew right away that Michael and Jane would fit right in with the Rollings family of firms.” Rollings also added that, currently, this marks our first partnership in Virginia.
Michael and Jane have dedicated their lives to helping those going through life’s most difficult moments, and the idea of wanting to solely focus on that is what brought them to us. Faced with other interested partners, they ultimately chose us because Greg and Debbie are a family team and, according to Lyon, “Immediately, you can tell they’re people of integrity and principles.” Lyon also noted that he’s excited that we’ll be able to handle the administrative side of the businesses which will allow him, Jane, and the staff to focus more on caring for their client families.
Combined, the three firms serve around 250 families annually.
The staff at Brooks Lyon, Watkins Cooper Lyon, and the Cremation Society of Virginia are some of the most caring and professional people and we are extremely excited to welcome them into our family of firms!
