“A good plan today is better than a perfect plan tomorrow.” — Gen. George S. Patton


    Cremations of the Ozarks in Hollister is a funeral home offering cremations, traditional ground burials and memorial services. All of this can be planned and paid for ahead of time, easing the burden on a family during their most difficult time.

    By taking care of arrangements in advance, owner Jason Bradley feels planning for the future can help reduce emotional stress when the difficult time arrives.

    “Pre-arrangements can be paid for all at once or in payments with no interest charged,” he said. “We can set those payments to meet any budget. This gives families peace of mind. What I have found is more families are doing this ahead of time to give their kids the gift of not having to worry about taking care of arrangements when they pass.”

    Bradley said he is here to walk people through the emotionally trying time of losing a loved one.

    “When someone calls me, who may be having the worst day of their life, they need somebody at the other end of the line who’s compassionate and not going to rush through this process,” he said. “I listen to what they have to say and help them through this difficult time, whether that be notifying Social Security and their life insurance company, communicating with the Veterans Affairs office or directing a service at a cemetery. I hope to soften a very, very difficult time. Our goal is to give an at-ease feeling while efficiently getting them through this hard time.”

    Every family deserves kind and compassionate service with honest and consistent pricing when experiencing the death of a loved one.

    “The families we serve feel our kind and compassionate service complements the affordable pricing,” he said.

    Cremations of the Ozarks offers a calming presence in the midst of emotional distress.
