The Distinctive Life Houston Care Team, including our licensed funeral directors, are available 24/7 to meet with your family when and where it is best for you, whether it be your home, the hospital/hospice, our funeral home, or wherever is most convenient and comforting for you. We take the time to really talk with you and your family, getting to know you and your loved one who has passed so we can understand what’s most important to you and to the deceased.
We also help families understand that remembrance or memorial services don’t have to be in a traditional funeral home or chapel. In fact, we’ve deliberately chosen to have a small facility in Houston that helps keep our costs low so that we can provide you with the best possible services at a budget-friendly cost. Distinctive Life’s experienced team can help plan services in a location that is meaningful to your loved one and your family – anywhere from a sports venue to a natural landmark. We believe that every life is distinctive, and every life deserves to be honored in a highly personal and meaningful way.
Our Care Team also helps families understand the full range of funeral and memorial services Distinctive Life provides, from cremation-only services to simple, private graveside services to full chapel or church-based services – whatever is needed to help you and your family honor your loved one, celebrate life, and fulfill last wishes.
Beyond our Immediate Need services, Distinctive Life also offers comprehensive pre-planning services to help individuals and families plan ahead, minimize costs, and ensure a legacy is preserved.
There are no words to express our gratitude for all that Lydia and Masha did for our family when we recently lost my sister. With their support and direction, they led me through the dark halls of grief and allowed me to stand when all I wanted to do was fall. They were compassionate and professional. Everything they did was beautiful and reflective of their attentiveness and sincerity. I knew, without them ever needing to say, that paying homage to the beautiful light that was my sister was a priority. I will forever be grateful to Lydia, Masha, and Distinctive Life Funeral Homes for the beautiful services they provided for Taylor, it truly was a priceless gift.
Absolutely fantastic service! My mother passed away on September 19, 2018. She wanted a simple cremation and with nothing extravagant. Definitely recommend in your time of need.
I am writing to express my appreciation and share how the staff went above and beyond my expectations! First, I must say this is my first time to lose a loved one and on the evening my mother passed I was given a list of funeral homes to choose from. After calling 3 places that had answering services, I tried a fourth and a woman answered. Within minutes she had put me at ease and gently walked me through the process. There are no words to express my gratitude for how she helped me and took some of the tasks off my plate. From meeting me at my home to complete the paperwork to helping me find Bird’s of Paradise on a 24 hour notice, and then coming back to drop off the memorial pamphlets. I kept saying that this amount of personal service couldn’t possibly be normal business practice and she assured me it was! I am a sharer by nature and had this been a restaurant or hotel experience I would have given a 5 star rating and posted on Facebook. I can without question say that I felt cared for throughout the entire process on a level that will leave a lasting memory.
