Due to the CDC Mass Gathering recommendation enforced by Indiana Governor, Eric Halcomb no more than 50 people are allowed in a room at a time. We have made the difficult decision to have Brenda Deckard’s Funeral Service and visitation be restricted to immediate family only. While this is not our ideal situation we ask that you understand we are all new at this reaction to the pandemic situation at hand.
