Our experience guides our care, and our history reminds us that we are first and foremost a family serving families — we are people to depend on. In fact, Griffin Leggett Funeral Homes were named ‘Best of the Best’ funeral homes in 1998 by readers of the Arkansas Democrat Gazette.

Community Involvement
