Why Choose Us


We are here for you

At Resthaven Gardens of Memory & Funeral Home, we take great pride in caring for our families, and will work tirelessly to provide you with a beautiful, lasting tribute to your loved one. In addition to the services we offer, you will receive an online memorial that you can share with family and friends. While honoring your loved one is our top priority, we also want to help you through this difficult time. We have a wide range of resources to support you not only today, but in the weeks and months to come.

A sampling of our offerings is listed below. Please call us at 225-753-1440 so we can help you through this process.

Online Memorials

We can create a customized, online memorial for you to share with family and friends. The memorial includes the obituary and any photographs you wish to provide. It will serve as a place for visitors to post condolences, share memories, upload photos, and light candles in honor of your loved one.

Tribute Videos

We can produce a personal tribute video that can be played at the service and online. Simply provide us with the photographs you want to include and we will transform them into a video celebration of your treasured memories. DVDs or digital files of the video are also available.

Funeral Fund Donations

We realize the expense of a funeral can be a burden. We provide the option for friends and family to make monetary donations to help cover funeral costs. These gifts can be made easily and securely online through our website, and are paid directly to the funeral home on behalf of the donor.

Ordering Flowers

We make it easy for friends and family to send flowers to your home or service to honor your loved one. We have partnered with local florists to offer the convenience of ordering directly from the obituary page of our website. You can also use this feature to select the flowers you would like at the service. This is a secure way to choose beautiful arrangements from the privacy and comfort of your home.

Sharing Service Details

We reduce the stress of contacting those who need the details of the service for your loved one. We post the dates and times of the service as part of the online memorial on our website. You can then either share the memorial on your Facebook or Twitter page or copy the details from the site into an email or text. Both options give you the peace of mind that you have provided the necessary information to those who need it.

Daily Grief Support Emails

We offer one year of free daily grief support emails to the families we serve. It is important to us that we continue to comfort our families through the difficult days that the first year of grieving can bring.


Your feedback

We are always interested in hearing from the families that we serve.  Please take a moment to let us know how well we served you in your time of need. We very much appreciate your feedback.

I just want to thank you for the wonderful care you took preparing my mother's body for viewing. You did a beautiful job. I also want to thank those who were the pallbearers and the cemetery staff who was so helpful especially Carla. Thanks for everything you did.


You were so nice to my family and I during our sad time. Thank you for being so helpful.


On behalf of my family, we would like to thank the Resthaven team for all their love and support through this very tough time. We appreciate how they treated our family.


Shanna Bryant was most attentive to our needs. Always right by my side making sure I was completely satisfied with everything. During the course of
the evening she would check my mother to make sure her hair and clothes were still perfect. When my father and I went back to pick out her marker Mr Jack was so helpful, showing us all the different options, he was so patient, never rushing us into a decision. We are pleased with every service from the time they picked my mother's body up at the nursing home to the final good-bye.


The staff at Resthaven Garden of Memories are the most friendly and compassionate group of people you would have the pleasure of working with during your time before and after a loss. We started working with them over 3 years ago in the preplanning stages of our funerals. And now at the time of the passing of my husband they were there for my every need on that special day and continue to be at this time. A special thanks to Britt and Karen that made a dreaded situation into a memorable time for all of our family and friends. Thanks again to everyone else that was involved.
