Here at Morales Funeral Home, we’ve been meeting funeral-care needs for Houston families for generations and are often asked this question: If a family member dies in the U.S. but wants to be buried in their home state or country, can you handle the arrangements? Our answer is a definitive yes. We have extensive experience working with foreign embassies and other agencies to ensure your family member arrives in their hometown as quickly and economically as possible.

Maybe your aunt was born in Mexico and wants her final resting place to be alongside her beloved abuela. Or maybe your father, who moved to Houston a few years ago, can’t imagine being buried anywhere but Puebla, where he grew up. Maybe you came here as a child, but your heart has always been in your birthplace. Whatever the case, whatever country or state is home for you or your family, our professional staff can help you arrange this process in the most convenient and affordable way.

While many hope to be buried in their native land, it’s understandable that few know how to make that happen in the safest, quickest, and most affordable way. And not every funeral home does either. This is where our team comes in. We coordinate the process on your behalf, and provide safe, dignified transportation. This allows you to focus on your family and your grief process, rather than getting caught up in the numerous details that are involved.

If it is your wish to be laid to rest some place other than Houston, you definitely want to put that in writing through preplanning with us. Not only will this put you in control of every detail, it will also remove the stress of decision-making from your loved ones. If you choose to pre-pay, it spares them the expense of bringing you home as well. We make the preplanning process easy; you can even preplan online from the comfort of home, if you wish. Or if you’d prefer, come in and meet with us. We’ve helped countless people get their wishes in order and can walk you through each step.

Plus, with Morales Funeral Home, you can have peace of mind knowing it is our family who is caring for yours. That level of trust comes with choosing a funeral home owned and operated by a family. Morales Funeral Home has been a part of our family since Felix and Angela Morales opened the doors in 1931. Helping members of our Houston community when they need it most means everything to us. It’s so much more than a job; funeral care is our calling. We do everything possible to offer personal service, making ourselves available to you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We have the flexibility to do what it takes to meet your individual needs, as opposed to corporate-owned funeral homes.

Also, since we are an active part of the community, we understand the values, traditions, faiths, and cultures that make Houston such a wonderfully diverse place to live. You can have confidence that we’ll “get it right” when it comes to meeting your needs. We help people find peace, renewal, and unity through traditional funerals, burial, and cremation, and add personal details that make a real difference.
