Funeral home celebrates new location

Family and friends from Tangipahoa and Livingston parishes welcome Brandon G. Thompson Funeral Home to Denham Springs. The official ribbon cutting ceremony, which had been delayed by the pandemic since 2020, was held Monday.

Livingston Parish Chamber welcomed Brandon G. Thompson Funeral Home to the Livingston Parish community with a ribbon cutting ceremony at its newest location.

Owners Brandon G. Thompson and Martha McKneely Thompson were delighted to finally be able to welcome family, friends, and chamber members at the long-awaited ceremony held Monday.

The beautifully decorated facility at 7738 Florida Blvd. in Denham Springs opened its doors in March 2020, but an official celebration had to be postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The Thompsons expressed their gratitude to everyone who helped along the way in making their dream a reality, including their staff who were all in attendance.

The Denham Springs facility marks the third and largest of Brandon G. Thompson’s locations and the first in Livingston Parish. The Hammond location opened in 2006, with Ponchatoula following in 2011.

Martha Thompson noted that while no one wants to have to use their services, they are there to take care of your precious “treasures” when that time comes.
