    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.

    Michael and I just watched the DVD with our daughter Heather and we all cherished every moment. The music was perfect, the tulips are lovely and the pictures just perfect. We will adore it always and thank you from the bottom of my heart. Appreciatively, Susan

    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."

  • "Again, you could not ask for a more caring staff...It is unbelieveable how comforting they all are and how they treat the deceased as their own famiy. We were the first to use the facility after a remodeling. They had to finish to be able to have our service and never made it feel like it was a problem for them."

  • "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."
