The Speaks Difference

PRICE AND VALUE
Because we are locally owned, our prices are less than our main competitors.  We offer high levels of service, great facilities, and the finest staff in the area.    Naturally, price and value are considerations for almost any family.  For those wanting the greatest value, our goal is to provide the best, for less than you might think.  Our value makes a difference.

PEOPLE
We believe that we have the finest staff possible, dedicated to providing the highest quality funeral service in the Kansas City area.  They believe in our Statement of Values, Mission, Purpose, and Vision because they wrote it.  And they genuinely want to help others.  In today’s hustle and bustle world, it’s refreshing to find individuals with real values and a sense of purpose.  Our people make a difference.

SERVICE
Our level of professional expertise is hard to match.  We survey every family served and in the last 12 months each family returning a survey has said that they would recommend us to others.  That puts a lot of pressure on us, but we exist to care for families as they grieve and celebrate life -- every time, with every family.  Our service makes a difference.

FACILITIES
Families having a service at one of our chapels will feel comfortable knowing that everything will be just right.  We believe we offer the finest facilities in the metropolitan area.  With beautiful and comfortable locations, we have great spaces for gathering, visiting, and sharing.  Our facilities make a difference.

COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT
We are involved in the community in all kinds of ways and participate in programs like Meals-on-Wheels, Youth Friends, Veteran’s Programs, and Seminars on Grief and Long-term Care.  We are involved in a variety of community service organizations, and members of our staff are active in many local churches and denominations.  We do these things because of who we are and because we truly care.  Our community involvement makes a difference.

LOCAL FAMILY OWNERSHIP
We live and work in this community.  As one of the few family-owned firms left in the metropolitan area, we believe you may find it important to know who actually owns the funeral home you chose.  The Speaks family is in its third generation of leadership.  If local ownership is important to you, you aren’t alone.  Many people would rather deal with a local family than out-of-town corporations.  Local family ownership makes a difference.
