The loss of a loved one during the pandemic can be challenging, cause uncertainty, and it has created cautiousness. Buie's Funeral Home is aware of this, however we are still held accountable for the safety of others. We are responsible in helping prevent the spread of COVID-19. It is mandatory to change the way we interact even during times of grieving.

In accordance with the CDC, NC Department of Health and Human Services and North Carolina Board of Funeral Service we ask you to help us in following the 3 W's:

-WEAR. Wear a N95 face mask or other cloth face covering. Everyone entering OUR facilities MUST have a mask on.

-WAIT. Practice social distance and REMAIN at least 6 feet from others.

-WASH. Wash your hands for 20 seconds as often as you can and sanitize frequently. We have sanitizer available at all entrances.

Buie's Funeral Home monitors daily the CDC and mandates set forth from our Governor. We also have staff that are responsible for cleaning and sanitizing our facilities.

We remain committed to the safety and health of our staff, you reading this, our grieving families and our community we have proudly served for over 80 years.

Veterans Headstones

The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) furnishes upon request, at no charge to the applicant, a Government headstone or marker for the unmarked grave of any deceased eligible veteran in any cemetery around the world, regardless of their date of death.   For eligible veterans that died on or after Nov. 1, 1990, VA may also provide a headstone or marker for graves that are already marked with a private headstone or marker. When the grave is already marked, applicants will have the option to apply for either a traditional headstone or marker, or a new device (available spring 2009).  

Flat markers in granite, marble, and bronze and upright headstones in granite and marble are available. The style chosen must be consistent with existing monuments at the place of burial. Niche markers are also available to mark columbaria used for inurnment of cremated remains.

When burial or memorialization is in a national cemetery, state veterans' cemetery, or military post/base cemetery, a headstone or marker will be ordered by the cemetery officials based on inscription information provided by the next of kin or authorized representative.

Spouses and dependents are not eligible for a Government-furnished headstone or marker unless they are buried in a national cemetery, state veteran's cemetery, or military post/base cemetery.

Note: There is no charge for the headstone or marker itself, however arrangements for placing it in a private cemetery are the applicant's responsibility and all setting fees are at private expense.
