Situated on the edge of the Sacramento Delta, between the San Francis- co Bay and Lake Tahoe, All Seasons is surrounded by peaceful farmlands; nestled amongst a close-knit com- munity that takes pride in their city. “We appreciate and respect these good people and take pride in honor- ing their loved ones with them,” says owner Michael Lofton . Lofton takes great pleasure in own- ing and operating All Seasons. He has worked more than 20 years in the funeral industry, following a unique background in compassionate com- munity service. Mike’s preparatory career includes years as a firefighter and emergency medical technician. Today Mike finds joy helping peo- ple by expanding his funeral services to accommodate their special needs, including memorials, burials, crema- tions, and ultimate donations. At the All Seasons facility, Mike has made renovations and improvements to the reception room, bathrooms, and family kitchen. In the chapel a sound system was added along with a grand piano for special musicals, and a big screen for video tributes. Mike has shipped over 600 cas- es domestically and internationally. All Seasons offers peace-of-mind re- sources to those with ultimate gift intentions of whole-body donation. For over a decade, they have part- nered with Science Care to assist medical professionals with advance- ments in surgical procedures and bi- ological technologies. All Seasons Funeral Chapel serves the community as a non-denomi- national facility. “We enjoy support- ing our friends and neighbors by hosting free community events. We open our chapel to the public for our Family Fall Celebration, Family Movie Night, and our Holiday Re- membrance Tree,” said Mike. “We also look forward to participating in Galt’s annual Holiday parade show- ing off our fabricated Ghostbusters Hearse!” Michael Lofton (Left) shows off the firm’s Ghostbusters Hearse in Galt’s Annual Holiday Parade Passages International and CANA: First-Ever Green Funeral Conference S ee P age A36 The Catholic Cemetery Conference Celebrates 70 Years S ee P age A32 2019 NFDA Convention Recap Classified Ads Shipping Directory Index of Advertisers
