"I am grateful that I had John, Dave, and the rest of the Ridge team help me plan two funerals with one month. A very difficult time for our family. The Ridge team were supportive, professional, and very attentive to our needs. What a super compassionate group of people."

"We used Ridge Funeral a few years ago for my mother-in-law and this year for my mother. Both times Ridge was professional and courteous. The location is minutes off the expressway. The facility is beautiful. The hair and makeup artist did a beautiful job on my mother. I would recommend Ridge Funeral."
