Northern Indiana Funeral Care is dedicated to keeping funeral costs low for clients. With a price point that can result in as much as a 40% savings (compared to other local funeral homes) and as a locally owned business they want to support families who wish to take a more active role in caring for their loved one after death. Brian has stood behind Indiana families who choose green burial, community death care, or a wake held in their own home following the death.
