"As guardian for my uncle it was my responsibility to arrange his funeral. Both Jamie Arthurs and Keith Sypolt made the entire process, from purchasing the funeral plan to carrying out the funeral arrangements, a painless process. Death of a family member is difficult enough but even more so during the COVID-19 crisis. Keith was able to guide me on providing my uncle with the proper care while keeping our family safe. Having never made funeral arrangements before, Keith was very professional and courteous and assisted me through the entire process. I highly recommend Robert E. Evans Funeral Home and staff."
