“Although it was a sad occasion for me‚ I enjoyed meeting you to help me with my mother’s arrangements. We were made to feel comfortable and well-informed about the whole process. Since then‚ I have shared with several people how impressed I was with your kind manner and helpfulness during a difficult time. I would recommend Moles Funeral Homes without any reservations.”
