About US

I'm a proud lifetime resident of Mesquite, from the Little Red School House to a graduate of Mesquite High School. I consider it a privilege to be able to serve the community that I call home.

Many people have asked me about the phrase"New Hope." Why call a funeral home New Hope?

New Hope has many meanings...

New Hope was one of the four communities that came together in 1953 to form Sunnyvale, TX.

To many, "New Hope" means that our personal faith provides eternal security and release from all the cares of this life.

To others, "New Hope" may signify the beginning of a new journey or a quest for purpose.

I worked several years in the corporate world of the Funeral Industry. And in that corporate world are many, many, caring and loving people who are great at what they do. But being in that corporate world some things have been taken out of their control.

So to me "New Hope" also means going back to the way things were before corporations took over the local funeral home...back when decisions were made to benefit the community, not Wall Street.

It is our pledge at New Hope Funeral Home to give you the warm and caring service we would give our own family. We are members of your community, privileged and proud to serve you and your family.
