Ratings & Reviews

Verified Customer Reviews

Since 2005, many of our customers have taken the time to tell us how we did each year via our Voice of the Customer program. Our star ratings and comments from families come directly from these surveys.

"At every decision and every question our family had, the team was there to assist with quick and kind responses. Jordan coordinated everything needed with the church and the two ministers who officiated. He was very quick to respond via text or phone at all times. He did a wonderful job assisting us in writing our Father's obituary and planning music for the service and also took care of all the details. Amanda was very patient and kind in her assistance with my difficulty uploading photos to the website. Everyone we spoke to on the team always spoke to us with compassion and kindness. I am so grateful for this wonderful team and being there for our family and assisting us to make our Father's funeral service a very personalized tribute to honor him."

"From picking up my mom and bringing her home, we experienced nothing but excellence! We were notified every step of the way while in route. We were so pleased with the whole experience. They were always right there when we needed anything and knew answers to all the questions or would get them quickly. It was such a relief to be able to spend the last moments with my mom, knowing everything else would be taken care of and it was. From brochures, pall bearers, flowers and pastor/singers; everything ran so smoothly. Those moments are now most precious to me!"
