  • "Our "Thank You" notes would be incomplete if we did not express our deep appreciation to you both for going "above and beyond" for our family at the time of Frank's funeral. You made a very difficult experience as good as it could possibly be. You treated us like your own family and went out of your way to make sure our needs were met - and then some. You are a very special couple and a blessing to our community."

  • "Thank you for the wonderful service that you, your husband and staff provided for me and my family. As you may know, my wife's mother was laid to rest in February. All I can say is the differences in service were incredible. You were kind, compassionalte, understanding, flexible, efficent, thorough, timely, and I can't begin to list how pleased my family was with the arrangements. As you know, you are in a line of business that people do not want to have to refer to others to but if I am ever in the position, I would unequivocally recommend you. Again thanks."
