Holding a funeral or memorial service for your loved one is a positive first step in the grieving process. Family members and friends get a chance to say their goodbyes, and at the same time, they get to share strong feelings with one another.

In the days, weeks and months following the service, people continue to need others to lean on for understanding, encouragement and guidance. For that reason, many local and national support groups have formed. These groups provide a common place and a comforting environment for expressing emotions through each phase of the grieving process.

FAMILY ROOTS AND A RICH 100-YEAR OLD HISTORY | Stone Funeral Home has a strong history that we are very proud of. The late Richard E. Stone was the founder of Stone Funeral Home in 1923. His son, the late Rudy Stone continued the Stone legacy for 50 more years. He was a community activist and a civil right warrior. The baton has now been passed on to his wife Jan Stone.


In your time of sorrow and grief, you need the type of support that can only be offered by a funeral home with much experience. Stone Funeral Homes are a family owned and operated business that has become a huge part of the Brevard Community.
