With the motto, ‘Celebrating life, one family at a time!’, Majestic Life Funeral Home and Crematory Services Inc, is the Virgin Islands’ latest funeral home. It is located in Baughers Bay, Tortola.
In a small launch ceremony yesterday afternoon, March 8, 2023, Founders Bianca J. Dougan, Simon Power and Kimeli Rhymer-Hanley hinted that the business is looking to add class to the local funeral service industry.
The co-owners further added that given VI’s growing population, the business was also created because they felt there was a need for another funeral home in the territory.
Bringing families togehter
“We endeavor to cheer up and bring together family and friends as they celebrate the life of their loved ones… we will also ensure that the services we provide are not only genuine but reliable and superior,” Ms Dougan said at the launch ceremony.
Mr Power said the business is not just looking to be recognized as a funeral home but as an outreach center that can give back to the community.
According to the business's Facebook
page, the funeral home will also provide families with information, guidance, and care during the bereavement process while they bring families and friends together to celebrate the lives of loved ones.
