Ratings & Reviews

Verified Customer Reviews

Since 2005, many of our customers have taken the time to tell us how we did each year via our Voice of the Customer program. Our star ratings and comments from families come directly from these surveys.

"Sue is who I've dealt with for both of my parents and both times she went above and beyond. When my mom passed I was so out of sorts but she was kind, reassuring and so supportive. When my dad passed I knew I had to come back and sue once again was amazing. This is such a difficult time for anyone whose experienced loss but I can honestly say that because of all the staff, this was made manageable and I was able to focus on what really mattered - remembering my loved ones."

"Sue Murphy, the funeral director, was beyond outstanding. We are stuck overseas due to COVID, so had to do everything via the Internet and telephone. Sue was very professional, knowledgeable and responsive. First rate customer service. She also suggested and helped us with additional services that we appreciated. I was a real pleasure dealing with her."
