"We are so grateful to Gary Kaufman Funeral Home for truly honoring my Mom's life! Her Life Celebration Was one of dignity, honor, and integrity. Grace and beauty were displayed throughout the entire funeral service and burial. As I continue to mention. I didn't know what I would feel like with my Mom gone but once I entered the room and saw how beautiful Mom was along with the decorations of her life in that space, the tone went from one of mourning to one of celebration and joy. We were able to truly celebrate the amazing life that Mom has and that meant everything. Thanks so much—forever grateful to you for making Mom's day a special and memorable one."
