COVID-19 Information


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


While this has been 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.


As is recommended by state, local, and federal officials, we are currently operating under the most recent CDC guidelines for all funeral services. However, in an effort to ensure the comfortability of all whom we serve, we will readily adhere to more stringent protocols upon request.


If you are planning to attend a visitation or funeral service and have questions regarding COVID-19 restrictions, please call the funeral home at 412-521-1943 to get case-specific information prior to your visit.  

Planning ahead

We are making it possible for families to Prearrange Funeral and Cremation Services while observing social distancing.
Given the significant concerns regarding the Coronavirus Pandemic, we must recognize the challenge of meeting face-to-face. Your health and safety are a top concern. We also want you to enjoy the peace of mind that comes from knowing that these decisions have not been left for others to face. 
Many families have seen the value of making Prearranged Funeral Plans. It relieves loved ones of the stress of making difficult decisions at an emotional time, and it allows you to express your personal wishes. You can also guarantee the cost of your services and guard against cost increases by prepaying your arrangements. 
Now, Pre-Need Funeral Planning can be accomplished by:
  • Phone Conference: Discuss your wishes with a Funeral Director 
  • Mail or Email: Important Pre-Planning Information sent directly to you
  • Online: Use our website to pre-plan online
  • Prepayment Options: Remove financial burden from loved ones
During these unexpected times, we are offering Monthly Payment Plan Options that can provide immediate benefit beginning with the very first payment.
We remain dedicated to respecting your wishes and helping you make an informed decision.
