McKay's Family Mortuary Chapel of Palms would like to announce the opening of their second location, McKay's Family Aftercare, Burial and Cremation Service located at 2001 3rd Street, Riverside, CA 95207.  McKay's Family Mortuary C.O.P. has serviced a large number of clients in the Riverside area over the past year and with that in mind they were motivated to expand their professional services and goodwill to Riverside.  It is their mission to provide continuity to the families that they have served and to meet any present or future aftercare needs for the community at large.  This new location includes an Aftercare library, hospice information and funeral prearrangements or preneed information centers.  McKay says, "Why not put your funeral on Lay-A-Way.  We have five, ten, twenty year plans available and the insurance companies that specialize in these services are reputable and in good standing".

Since their grand opening on January 24, 2005 at 16918 Baseline Blvd., Fontana they have served and touched many minds and hearts in the San Bernardino and Fontana communities with their humanitarian efforts and goodwill.  "With a sincere heart we established an open door policy under the auspices of hope to honor the community with dignity and respect as their public servant," stated Mark McKay.  Lists of past public services include a Prayer Vigil in honor of the Hurricane Katrina Victims, Health Self Awareness Workshops.  Passing out flowers, flags and flyers on the 4th of July and Veterans Day to those who drive by, inviting them to share in the service that's taking place inside the chapel.  In a joint effort, McKay's interacting with fellow humanitarians in the community such as: Pastor Raymond Turner of Temple Baptist, San Bernardino, Pastor Gantt of Second Baptist, Riverside, CA, that took the initiative and opportunity to sponsor and co-sponsor services honoring Father's, Memorial and Veterans Day celebrations. 

In October 2006, Mr. McKay received the Achievement Award for Community Service in Riverside from U.S. Senate Chaplin Barry Black of Washington, D.C.  Among other awards received were those from, Josie Gonzales, County Supervisor of San Bernardino, CA, Joe Baca, Jr., former Assemblymember and the City of Fontana.  Not to mention numerous recognitions by local entertainment celebrities for the professional services rendered to their family members and the untiring humanitarian efforts exercised by McKay and his staff.

McKay says, "It is our goal to encourage the general public to regain faith and trust in the funeral industry again.  It begins by educating people about death through the administration of an entirely new concept and approach; visuals.  The process of providing information to the consumer about this industry is vital and has been seriously inspired by a continuous flow of litigation".   Mr. McKay's concern, humanitarian efforts and respect for the communities he serve is spreading throughout the entire Inland Valley and neighboring counties. As one bereaved family member stated, "Mr. McKay is just what the doctor ordered to get the job done".
