I just wanted to take a minute to thank you for all your efforts over the years. I guess it may seem strange for some to hear, but this is our funeral home. This is where our family goes during the devastating loss of one of our own. We gather here to laugh and cry, but most importantly to remember. From each funeral to the service each year remembering those we have lost, I gain more peace. I understand that it is your business to take care of a service, but I believe that you go over and above what anyone could typically expect. The way you handle all the details, gently guiding a family through the process at such a difficult time is more than impressive, it is amazing. At times like this a family is too physically and mentally exhausted to think let alone organize the details of the final gift you will ever give a deceased loved one . Your team are angels of compassion and are a credit to your profession. We thank you for always being there for our family and friends and for being such a positive force in our community.
