November 2021

"I always felt like the funeral home had everything under control and moving in the right direction, while still allowing for me to adjust or personalize the various aspects. This could have been an overwhelming process. Instead, the funeral home handled 95% and helped me understand upfront the few things that I would need to handle on my won (repas

t, headstone, etc.)."
