Our family firm has served the Atlanta Metropolitan Community for over 47 years. Now, the whole family is involved with all aspects of the business, including Resthaven Gardens of Memory, a cemetery in Decatur, Georgia.

With the Second Generation of Dawsons at the helm, the business is evolving just as the funeral industry and the changing desires of the families we serve. The Traditional Church Service is often enhanced or replaced with a more personalized and unique tribute to a loved one. Families are also more budget and consumer conscience. All of which we welcome, because we realize that as 21st century funeral professionals, we must stay informed, educated, creative and in touch with our community. Therefore, we encourage Memorial and Funeral Services with a special touch (i.e.: memory boards, “favorite things” display tables, and memorial videos). We also offer Pre Need arranging, financing and grief counseling, serving all religions and nationalities.

We Take Pride In Our Home

When you step into our Mortuary, we want you to feel as comfortable as possible. The warm colors and beautiful furnishings often surprise, and actually relax, all who visit our firm.

It Does Not Have To Be Black......

Our rolling stock sets us apart from the other funeral homes. As selected by Elizabeth at the company’s inception, our vehicles are painted Meridian Maroon, topped in beige. Cadillac Limousines and hearses are the preferred choice of our firm. Alfonso decided that from the beginning. We must admit, they do make a beautiful presentation.

The Backbone Of Our Company

Understanding the importance of a first class, educated staff, we employ at least six Licensed Funeral Directors and Embalmers, a full time Accountant, Drivers, a Licensed Barber – Cosmetologist, a Licensed Insurance Agent and a Spanish Interpreter.

In Closing.....
