"The staff, especially Naomi, were of great assistance in arranging to lay my father to rest. Although our requests may have appeared rushed, the staff at Gates, Kingsley & Gates Smith Salsbury Funeral Directors came through. We were worried that ongoing pandemic restrictions and coordinating with multiple other entities would be problematic, but ev

erything worked out in a timely manner. On behalf of my family and I, we thank Naomi and staff for their services, keeping us updated on all matters, showing compassion, and displaying the utmost professionalism in light of the circumstances. Based on our experience, we highly recommend this mortuary."
