Our Commitment to Service As funeral directors, our calling imposes upon us special responsibilities to those we serve and to the public at large. An important obligation is to provide people with the information they need to make knowledgeable decisions about funerals and funeral directors. Waid Funeral Home is proud to be a member of Selected Independent Funeral Homes (SIFH), an international association of independent funeral directors who have met and continue to maintain exacting standards of funeral service. Membership in SIFH is by invitation only, and is extended only after a thorough evaluation of character, service, performance and facilities. In acceptance of our responsibilities, and as a condition of our membership in Selected Independent Funeral Homes, we affirm the following standards of good funeral practice and hereby pledge: To provide the public with information about funerals, including prices, and about the functions, services and responsibilities of funeral directors. To furnish each family, at the time funeral arrangements are made, a written memorandum of charges and to make no additional charges without the approval of the purchaser. To make no representation, written or oral, which may be false or misleading, and to apply a standard of honesty in all dealings. To maintain a qualified and competent staff, complete facilities and suitable equipment required for comprehensive funeral service. We pledge to conduct ourselves in every way and at all times in such manner as to deserve the public trust, and to place a copy of SIFH's Code of Good Funeral Practice in the possession of a representative of all parties with whom we arrange funerals. In addition to being a member of SIFH, we are a member of the Erie/Crawford County Funeral Directors Association, Pennsylvania Funeral Directors Association and the National Funeral Directors Association. When a death occurs, your primary responsibility is to yourself and the ones you love. For you to receive the help you need to face the many issues requiring attention simultaneously, we urge you to call us immediately. Regardless of the day or hour, our staff is always prepared to respond to your needs quickly and competently. After the funeral or memorial service, practical assistance with unforeseen details and help in making adjustments. In addition, we offer a broad selection of caskets, vaults, urns, clothing and other items for your selection. As with all of the services we offer, we believe that the families we serve are entitled to simple, straightforward information about these items, to enable them to make informed decisions. Toward that end, we encourage you to compare the various items that interest you, to ask any questions that come to mind, and to feel free to take whatever time necessary to reach the decision most appropriate for you and those you care about.
