"The care and compassion at every step during our family's recent loss was beyond exceptional. Every detail and every step of the process was patiently and professionally explained in full and carried out meticulously before, during and after our service. The flowers that we selected were magnificent and the staff made sure that the chapel was set up exactly as we had asked. I cannot thank everyone enough for what they did for our family in our time of sorrow."

"The Funeral Director, Madison Nishan made what I expected to be an unimaginable, difficult, daunting and emotional experience, a calm, pleasant and productive one. Madison's professionalism and experience is exceptional. I am not able to imagine better service. Madison respectfully took care of every detail, provided helpful information and resources as well as excellent response time to my questions. I would not hesitate to recommend the services of Madison Nishan and Drake and Son Funeral Home."
