“You were very helpful about anything I’ve asked. My youngest son‚ who is a pastor‚ said you are the most caring and attentive funeral directors he’s met. My daughter commented on the caring sensitivity she felt from the team‚ and on your competency. You exude compassion and peace. Words cannot adequately express my satisfaction.”
