Apr 03, 2001, 01:00 ET from Richard Lamb Funeral Service

    CHICAGO, April 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Richard Lamb Funeral Service announces
 the opening of its Near North arrangement suite.  Located at 233 E. Erie St.,
 Chicago IL 60611, the suite is a facility in which families can make funeral
 or cremation arrangements in a convenient, non-funeral home setting.  This is
 the company's second location; the original location is in the western suburb
 of Westmont.  Founded by long-time industry leader, Richard Lamb and his wife,
 Susan, in 1998, the company has taken a unique approach to funeral and
 cremation service.  They offer a wide variety of services and merchandise
 sales, but without the high cost of a funeral home building.  According to
 Richard Lamb, "Most people today are looking for simplicity, control, and
 value in all their major decisions.  Until recently that was almost impossible
 to do in the funeral industry.  We look at ourselves as the Saturn of the
 funeral industry: upfront value pricing, openness in everything we do, and no
 pressure."
     The Richard Lamb Funeral Service web site is one of the most comprehensive
 in the industry and one of the few that contains complete pricing information
 for all services and merchandise.  "Quite often people look at our web site
 first, then call or come in.  They may select a complete cremation or funeral
 service or just buy a casket from us," Lamb says.
     Casket and burial vault samples, cremation urns and jewelry, bronze and
 granite markers, books, cards, and other printed materials, are all displayed
 tastefully at the new arrangement suite.  This allows the family to complete
 funeral, cremation, or pre-need arrangements in one convenient location.
     For more information or to request a casket brochure or service price
 list, call toll-free 1 888/511-5262 or view online at www.richardlamb.com
