Urban Funeral Home of Ambler, PA, is celebrating a landmark year as a member of the International Order of the Golden Rule (OGR), a professional association of independently owned and operated funeral homes. Urban Funeral Home was accepted into the prestigious funeral home organization in April, 1987. As independently owned firms, Golden Rule funeral homes must adhere to basic principles that guide their practices and high ethical conduct.
"We are pleased to have the Urban Funeral Home as a long-time member," said Jeffrey Wages, OGR President. "The people at Urban Funeral Home have proven for 25 years that they are caring, compassionate professionals. As a member of the Order of the Golden Rule, the funeral home owners and staff have dedicated themselves to continuing this tradition of caring in their community." Skip was also elected as a member of the OGR Board of Directors.
“I am honored to have this opportunity to assist OGR with a vision of excellence for independent funeral professionals. It has been our privilege to maintain ties to OGR for so many years," said Skip Urban, Urban Funeral Home. "Being a Golden Rule firm has helped us to better serve our families in Ambler, to offer them peace of mind and integrity they can count on. That is absolutely key to maintaining good relations with our clients in this sensitive business."
Headquartered in Austin, Texas, OGR is one of the world's largest professional associations of independent funeral homes, whose members are dedicated to offering dependable, dignified and caring service to families. "Service measured not by gold, but by the Golden Rule" has been the credo of the association since its founding in 1928.
