  • Dear Janet and Richard, Just a brief note of thanks for all you did for us and for our community. Your professional caring and support are so valuable when one has experienced the loss of a loved one, and for that we are most grateful. However, you both go so much beyond the professional role. You both showed us such personal love, as well as caring and support. For this we will forever be eternally grateful. Thanking you from the bottom or our hearts, Susan and Michael Cimeno-Cary.

  • My husband, Ronald Oathout, passed away unexpectedly. We were married for 45 years and I was in shock. Mereness-Putnam gave me all the time I needed without any sales pitches and assisted me in making Ronald's services beautiful with the funding I had. I will always remember their thoughtfulness in my time of grief. They should be commended for their high standard of service.

  • "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."
