Pictures of communities in Schuylkill County. A few years ago I took my camera with me flying and took a bunch of pictures and created this web site.

Enjoy!

Horse Drawn Funerals
Make your loved one's last journey one that will be forever remembered and cherished by family and friends. A special farewell for a special person.
When was the last time you saw a funeral procession being led by a pair of majestic Friesian horses hitched to a beautiful Horse Drawn Hearse? The passing of a President?
A Horse Drawn Hearse may be the answer to that age old question. How can we show the world how special our loved one was to us? They deserve more than just an "ordinary" service. Show the world that your loved one was "special".
