Creating a brand that celebrates life, cares for a loved one’s family and friends, embraces a vast array of cultures and impacts community is no easy task. In 2014, that’s exactly what we set out to do. Making arrangements, hosting funeral services and driving families to their loved one’s final resting place is not enough. The vision is far greater: to completely revolutionize the experience of loss.
After servicing the Topeka, Lawrence and Kansas City areas for nearly twenty years together, the dynamic duo – Tycke Williams and Charles Cofield – opened the doors to Peaceful Rest Funeral Chapel, a place where death is not so obvious. “You won’t find caskets anchored between heavy drapes. You won’t hear our team use the word ‘arrangements’. In fact, at your loved one’s gathering, you might walk into what feels like the set of your loved one’s life. We have recreated entire beauty salons in our edifice to express the life of the deceased. We magnify detail until it becomes monumental in the eyes of our team members. We care so much that we have unique persons with unique positions just to innovate and orchestrate the experience. This is what we do. We create celebrations to last a lifetime,” Tyson Williams, director of marketing and innovation.
