2013 NFDA Pursuit of Excellence Award Winner

“It’s because we want you to know how determined we are to make a difference and help families during their toughest times – that is why we mention this special award.” 

Tommy “TR”  Routsong 


There are a list of reasons why only 153 out of 20,557 funeral homes earned the Pursuit of Excellence Award from the National Funeral Directors Association for 2014. It starts with a “demonstrated a commitment to raising the bar on funeral service…” 

That means the funeral home must

  • Demonstrate proficiency in key areas of funeral service, such as compliance with state and federal regulations.
  • Offer outstanding programs and resources to bereaved families.
  • Maintain an active level of involvement within the community.
  • Participate and actively serve in the funeral service profession.
  • Promote funeral home services through a variety of public relations programs.
  • Provide ongoing education and professional development opportunities for its staff.
  • Adhere to a Pledge of Ethical Practices.
