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.

"I would recommend this funeral home to anyone. The home itself is beautiful, colors are calming and peaceful. Melissa and Dennis were caring, professional and responsive to my needs in a timely manner. All of the staff were true professionals. The display at my father's viewing/funeral was so personal that most people, including me, thought a friend or family member came in and set it up. We were able to honor my father's life in a special way because of the efforts of the staff here. Thank you for everything."

"I couldn't have been more pleased with my experience. I really dreaded going because I thought we were going to be pressured into buying things that we could not afford but that was not how it was at all. Liz was professional, courteous and empathetic throughout the whole process. She offered us options that were in our price range and we did not feel pressured to buy unnecessary items. She was also very efficient - she had my mom's obituary and memorial website completed before our initial visit was over. All of the facilities were updated and beautiful. I got so many compliments on the service."
