History & Staff

We have years of experience caring for families, from all walks of life. Each family comes to us because they know we are leaders in our profession, dedicated to excellence in service, and have the highest integrity.

Our History

Our History

Although we are licensed as a California Funeral Establishment, our experience, and genuine care for families defines a deeper, more modern, solutions-oriented identity.  Sacred Space is a family owned, “End of Life Services Establishment.”

When facing the incomprehensible thought of losing a loved one, planning a proper goodbye can seem overwhelming.  Honoring the wishes of your loved one, in a way that is dignified and respectful, while keeping costs affordable, can seem difficult, but is exactly what we do.  Beyond this, our deep experience in this space, provides us access to resources you might not even have thought of.  Our mission is to help you create an end of life experience that is meaningful, celebrates the life lived, the legacy left behind, and leads to a comforting sense of closure. 

Our unique operating model honors time transcendent traditions, creates simplified yet transformational gatherings, and even provides immediate cremation or burial, by streamlining outdated, expensive, business methods that add no value to families.
