Through the years, when death visited a family, the house was often identified by a badge of flowers or light in the window.
This act let their neighbors and the community know that there had been a loss within the family. At the Mark A. Schneider-Gompf Funeral Home, we maintain this tradition by turning our porch light on while we are caring for a member of our community. This lets everyone know that a life has ended, and that a period of mourning has begun for the family. This reminder stays lit until that person has been put to rest.
Every life has meaning. To us, recognizing the conclusion of that
life is important.
