Texas law does not require embalming. We can transport your loved one to a facility that will refrigerate for a fee. It is our policy to not keep an unembalmed body on our premises for more than 24 hours.
You may have a funeral service with an unembalmed body present; however, public viewing of an unembalmed body is not allowed. Only the immediate family will be allowed to view an unembalmed body, if viewing is possible.
