Red Bird was created to give people what they need. A personalized, meaningful event that’s full of life.

Done wrong (the old way), funerals can be formulaic and out-of-touch. So nowadays, many families reluctantly follow tradition or worst of all, do nothing.

But funerals still matter, maybe more than ever. We still have a real human need to grieve, celebrate, say our piece and comfort each other. These things bring meaning to life, and they’re essential for closure.

Red Bird is helping friends & family create this new, better funeral that’s both modern and meaningful. We hope you’ll join us in being part of this important change.

Even Your Team will be Personalized

Why do Red Bird guests say our events are more enjoyable and more meaningful? We start with a customized team that’s built around your needs. Review our roster of Certified Celebrants.

Red Bird is newly Hatched from Cardinal Funeral Homes

Cardinal Funeral Homes is a fourth-generation family business, providing respectful, non-commissioned help for almost 100 years.  Jimmy and Andrew Cardinal have created Red Bird to meet the needs of modern, less traditionally religious families.

If you need cremation or even burial services, Cardinal is here for you with round-the-clock help.
