"It was a difficult time and Esmeralda was very caring and patient with me. I will never forget her kindness. Even Diane in the office was kind when I called...and kept calling! We were at Ridge for my fathers service 16 years ago. We now live in the suburbs, however returned to Garfield Ridge for Ridge Funeral Home for my mom's services. I knew they would make us feel 'at home'."

"Ed, Esmeralda, JoJo and Diane were excellent at communicating any issue that arose. During these challenging times I found them to be flexible and prompt in addressing any questions or making suggestions that were consistent with the type of funeral my uncle requested."
