What our Families Say

Dear Steve, Our entire family would like to say thank you for the beautiful and organized funeral service your entire staff did for our mother. Our mother looked absolutely beautiful. You were able to nicely fix up her sparse hair. Her skin looked smooth and had a nice, pinkish color to it. She looked so peaceful. The enlarged picture was a very pleasant surprise. We are so grateful to you. You helped make a challenging task more manageable with the manner in which you helped us through each phase of the selections: song choices, readings, prayer card series & poems, flowers, choice of casket, restaurant choice, etc. I will highly recommend your funeral home to whomever may ask me for a recommendation. Thank you again and bless you for all your patience with a grieving family.
