Pre-Need During Covid-19 


Covid-19 Update

For over 100 years, the Kanai Family has guided families in the Pittsburgh area through the difficult process of losing a loved one. We will remain dedicated to doing so throughout this crisis and will do our best to ensure that everyone feels safe here while paying their respects.

It was recently brought to our attention that a visitation left a mourner uncomfortable. We find this feedback deeply troubling as it is of the utmost importance that we provide a caring atmosphere that allows for both the emotional and physical well-being of the families we serve in their time of grief. Please note that greater care will be taken going forward to ensure that all visitors comply with the public health guidelines provided by Allegheny County. All guests are required to wear a face mask. We will continue to enforce this policy until the CDC recommends otherwise. We kindly ask that if you are not feeling well to please stay at home. Furthermore, if someone is showing symptoms of illness, they will not be permitted to enter the Funeral Home premises.

While this is a worrisome time for us all, we certainly recognize that the loss of a loved one only magnifies such difficulties. Our family and staff are fully committed to showing compassionate care to help our community through it.

Amendments will be made to the above statement as new information is made available from the CDC and local, state, and federal officials.
