To the Families We Serve

To the families we served this year, our trusted partners and our community:

As we look ahead to a new decade, the staff and family at Walter & Lewis Funeral & Cremation Services has so much to be thankful for. For some, the holiday season and new year is the most joyous time of year. For others, it can be one of most difficult when dealing with grief. That's why we'd like to extend our wishes for a peaceful new year.

We'd also like to thank you—the families who trust in our services during the most difficult times in their lives, our partners who have forged deep relationships with us, and the entire Champaign County community that has constantly supported us and our many community programs for decades.

As you reflect on your own triumphs from the past year, we encourage you to make a list of your milestones. That's what we did. Check out a year in review here at Walter & Lewis Funeral & Cremation Services.
