"The slide show you put together (you scanned MANY photos) was greatly appreciated by many. Levi, the funeral director, made us feel calm at the services. He was in touch with us several times regarding the death certificates, which I picked up today. The catered food was delicious. When I wanted to change something on the funeral notice online,

they changed it right away. All the staff were very patient at the graveside ceremony."

"Brooke was fantastic. She took care of everything start to finish with no pressure. She was respectful but transparent about everything which was the reason we decided to go with Drake and Sons. I couldn't imagine having my mom's service anywhere else after the respect and care we received from her."
