"At a time of sadness, Bill Merritt Funeral Home was amazing. Kristin Coe was my coordinator and she handled everything for me. She was kind and not once pushed anything on me that I did not want. My mother looked peaceful and beautiful and I could not have asked for anything more. Very happy with the services I received."

"In a time that could be more stressful and could cause more frustration, me and my brother definitely felt like that everyone went above and beyond what we wanted. From the first call to now, Kristen and all the staff have been friendly, cordial and very respectful. No matter the request or need of the family has for the service, they were more than willing to fulfill. Thank you so much!!!"
