"My dad was an artist. I asked if I could replace the paintings on the wall with my dads artwork, and they had no hesitation in allowing that. On the second day of the funeral, we were getting ready to leave and I noticed an orchid plant that wasn't there on the first day. At this time in the night, Kirsten had already taken all the cards off the f

lowers and I asked her if she knew where it came from; she pulled the card right out of a box and I was able to identify who sent the orchid, and there were lots of cards. She was very organized. I never felt rushed or pressured or anything. As far as funerals go, they're as good as it gets. I was very appreciative"
