A Message to our Families and Visitors

Dear friends,

Horan & McConaty has always cherished our role in the Denver community. In the 130 years we’ve served this city, it’s been our honor to stand beside our neighbors through some of Colorado’s worst days.

Today, fear and uncertainty abound, but Horan & McConaty is committed to serving you in every way we can: we promise to continue every service we offer to the greatest extent allowed during the COVID-19 outbreak. To mourn a loss in the middle of such a challenging time is a tremendous burden. To those families who find themselves in that situation, it remains our mission to help you say goodbye in the most healthy and complete way possible. As always, our staff is here to support you, whatever your situation.

For the safety and health of the families we serve, Horan & McConaty is offering the following changes to our usual practices:

  • We recommend that all funeral arrangements be made by phone or online. We are able to handle everything we need remotely so that, for your own safety, you don’t have to make an additional trip into our offices. Please call us at 303-745-4418 with questions or to make arrangements.
  • In compliance with state and local officials, we must limit funeral services to only 10 people.
  • If you choose to hold a service at this time with only 10 people in attendance, Horan and McConaty will help you arrange a Memorial Service, free of charge, when you can gather your loved ones together following the outbreak.

We’re here for our Denver-area neighbors. If you have any questions about how best to navigate a loss or make decisions in the current situation, please don’t hesitate to contact us at 303-745-4418. It would be our great honor to serve you.
