During a family’s time of loss, understandably family and friends would like to visit and express their sympathy. Ashelawn Memorial Chapel and Gardens and Badger Funeral Home asks that during this difficult time for the safety and well being of the family, please keep touching and contact to a minimum. We ask if you have visited outside of the USA in the last two weeks or if you are experiencing cold or flu symptoms to please wait and visit with the family at a later time. You may contact the family by email, place an online condolence on our website or give the family a phone call. Again, we understand this is a difficult time but we encourage exhibiting safety and courtesy to everyone involved in these services. The mandate from Governor Cooper includes funerals, visitations and all services so we must limit the attendance until further notice. We appreciate your cooperation and understanding during this unprecedented situation.
