"The entire staff was professional, courteous, responsive and extremely supportive. From working out the details for pricing and procedure, to the handling of my mother once she had passed and finally to the final service and handling of the gravestone. My mother's funeral was a simple, private affair and they still treated it as important as any other large event. I'm very satisfied and have already come back to plan for my father's passing."

"Our family was able to pre-plan our Mother's service with Mimi and Tim. They provided us with information and allowed us time to make decisions. The day of the calling hours and funeral mass, we had John Dengler and his staff help guide us through the process. Thank you to everyone at Dengler, Roberts and Perna. We appreciate your efforts during the Covid-19 crisis, keeping us updated on the changes in procedures and making our Mom's services a time to remember her."
