Testimonials

 

"Both Mike and Bob were gentle, understanding, and had so much patience with our family.  They suggested and guided and as if my husband was their own brother.  I received so much care - I never expected to form an instant bond like we did.  Everything possible was provided; I never had anything to worry about except my own pain."
-
"I love the warm and very comforting setup at the funeral home - pretty, tasteful, not pretentious, and all was arranged flawlessly.  Many people even commented."
-
"There are no words to express my gratitude to Bob and Mike for understanding exactly what I wanted.  They listened while I cried and arranged the perfect event, from the first day at my home to the last day at the cemetery."
-
"Lovely gentlemen..."
-

"Michael was very professional and caring.  He took time to talk and I could tell he cared, and made sure that I got exactly what I wanted.  The ceremony was nicer than I ever expected; he listened to what I wanted, and went above and beyond.  Everything the funeral directors did and the ceremony made me pre-pay for my funeral now.  Pre-planning is best."
