Testimonials

Your feedback

We are always interested in hearing from the families that we serve.  Please take a moment to let us know how well we served you in your time of need. We very much appreciate your feedback.

Angela is kind, courteous, & professional in every aspect. From our 1st meeting, she was sympathetic, helpful & patient. She was always available , only a phone call away. She made a sad, upsetting time more bearable.
From our 1st meeting of anyone of the staff (picking up body at house) to the cemetery and after needs; the staff was professional & compassionate. The entire staff needs to be commended for the wonderful job they do under less than ideal circumstances.

Ryan was very helpful & kind in our trying time. We were absolutely clueless & he took care of everything. Answered all questions we asked. I feel we were very taken care of in this painful time. Ryan went above & beyond in our opinion.

The passing of my brother (in a distant location) created a series of complications which were handled by Ryan in a professional and timely manner. Ryan removed all the arrangement burden from us at this difficult time.

On behalf of my family and I, we can't thank your staff enough for the help, comfort, prayers, for just being there to guide us in the right direction, going out of your way to help get the graveside location, squared away all the small things that each and everyone of you did. Allowing Jack Murray to bring Haley and Julia home meant so much to us and allowing myself and Alex do their hair, make up, etc. My mom and Haley wouldn't want it any other way. This place is amazing and would highly recommend it to others.

I could not imagine having a better experience in such a horrible tie. The staff was very sensitive and caring during a very difficult situation.

Diane Forte

The staff was very understanding about our services. Very helpful with our concerns and wishes. Also in seeing Ryan at another function a month later-he took the time to ask me how I was and if I had any questions. He did do other follow ups for me which I am very grateful for. To me he went out of his way to continue his services.
The compassion and concern that was shown by the staff(even though they did not know my mom) was very heart warming. At a time when you are not thinking as clear as you would like-they steered us in the right direction and did it with loving comments and gestures.

In our time of deep sadness Ryan was there. He was beyond professional. He had many obstacles to overcome and he did so. He went above and beyond his duties. My father was a proud man and the way that Ryan treated his funeral only made me prouder of the dad I love. Ryan had the honor guard there at the graveside which was special.

One of the most impressive things was the day my dad died & hospice had called your services. When Ryan arrived he was very patient, courteous & understanding, I have a big family and many family members called and came to the house that day and Ryan had been here for hours, not once did he rush like he had to leave. He just sat with us at the kitchen table and left us start the mourning process. Thank you Ryan and God Bless
