As Renfrew County has been deemed a "green" area by our Provincial Leaders, we are pleased to be able to allow families greater numbers of visitors/attendees during visitations and services. The maximum allowable in our funeral home at any given time increases from 10 to 30 once again. The same number of people can be in attendance during a funeral service in our chapel. Though not perfect in any way, we are fortunate to have these changes occurring as we continue to flatten the curve and work our way back to a state of "normalcy" during the continuation of the Covid-19 pandemic. As has been since the beginning of this pandemic, we at the Pilon Family Funeral Home have taken every possible measure to protect the health and well-being of our family, our staff and the families we serve.
Moving forward, we need to continue to do our part to slow or avoid the spread of the Covid-19 virus while providing meaningful and necessary services to our client families.
Our front door remains open on an "appointment only" basis thus avoiding unnecessary contact with one another.
Families who have experienced a loss are encouraged to come to the funeral home in smaller than normal numbers to arrange services.
People wishing to make charitable donations in memory of family or friends are encouraged to do so through our interactive and friendly website.
We have perfected the use of electronic exchange of information which allows us to correspond and work with families using the telephone and email.
The number of people that can be in attendance at outdoor functions such as a graveside service has been increased to 100 once again. Social distancing as well as the use of face masks still apply. As we move forward and continue to navigate these challenging times, we are reminded of the need to honour, celebrate and grieve the loss of our loved ones. Through the use of our state of the art Audio-Visual equipment, we are able to provide very intimate services for immediate family members while inviting others to join us on their electronic devices from home.
We thank everyone in our community for their patience, understanding and support as together we move through these difficult times in the hopes that this entire crisis will soon be behind us.
As community and industry leaders, the Pilon Family are here to support those in need. There has never been a more suitable time to “give back” to our community than now. We want to make every effort to minimize exposure. We ask that you please contact us by phone or email and that you refrain from visiting the funeral home unless necessary.
We remain accessible 24/7.
At the service of our community.
Andre, Gina and Phil Pilon and Staff.
