Compassion. It’s shown by longtime staff and in the authentic environment at Greenwood & Myers Mortuary. “We are the only family-owned and locally operated funeral home in Boulder,” says Owner Michael Greenwood. “We don’t report to stockholders, we do everything in-house and we are entirely dedicated to customer service.” Greenwood & Myers employees can handle everything, including full-service funerals, luncheons or receptions, as well as grief support, creative celebrations of life and self-directed funerals. Burial services, cremation and green funerals are also available. The atmosphere is just as memorable for commemorating a loved one: “It’s not like a traditional funeral home setting,” Greenwood says. “It’s much more comfortable, like a home or lodge, just warm and welcoming.” 2969 Baseline Road, Boulder, 303.440.3960, greenwoodmyersfuneral.com.
