"I unfortunately was left with the task of identifying a funeral home for services after my father passed. I reached out to another local funeral home and unfortunately felt quite pressured as well as received guilt to pressure me into purchasing additional services and items. It was a relief to be able to call and receive general quotes on prices u

pfront without the pressure of having to come in. Being sent options via email was also helpful in allowing me to review material at my time without feeling pressure. During our appointment itself, Nicole, our funeral Director, was very patient and understanding. I understand this is a business in itself however the patience and explanations without pressure or judgement were exactly what I needed to make decisions I was comfortable and happy with. Thank you."

Walking us through 'packages', answering questions, offering suggestions and other options and did not put any pressure on us to buy things we weren't interested in. For a terrible time in our lives, they made this memorable, in a good way. We're very happy we c
