"The entire process from initial contact with marty to Jamie's assistance to cantor to staff member and driver at cemetery. Every one was amazing helpful and considerate."

"I'd previously worked with another funeral home, which ultimately went out of existence. They were helpful in helping me to set up the pre-funeral arrangements....but nothing compared to the experience I had once Gutterman and Musicant took over the account. Everyone I talked to was so helpful in their suggestions, and clear in their explanations. If I had a question (and there were several), someone would respond immediately. They spent a lot of time investigating various newspapers that we wanted to publish my mother's obituary in. The hearse driver was so considerate and gave us the time we needed, to identify and say good-bye to my mother. The follow-up list of tasks that I received afterwards was also so helpful in terms of next steps. I can't say enough about my experience with this organization. I just wish that they were an option to use for my plot which is in southern Maine, in a non-sectarian cemetery."
