"D.J. worked diligently with me to make sure the arrangements were done exactly how we wanted and that our family and friends were taken care of during this time of grieving and celebration of life."

"DJ and staff were attentive and helpful during a long, trying day. DJ embraced our request for a socially-distanced visitation service, in which friends were able to express their respects via a drive-through under the portico. DJ and staff braved the cold weather to record everyone in the guestbook. The outdoor Life Story of personal items portrayed Dad's hobbies and passions. Brian also endured cold and windy conditions at the graveside service the following day. On behalf of all Dad's family, we appreciate the diligent efforts to make these two days a touching celebration of a life well-lived."

"Anything we asked was taken care of and done without hesitation. Josh even brought the flowers and everything to my home after the funeral so that I would not have to be burdened with returning. He also took care of all of the issues we experienced with the cemetery. Exceptional service. Thank you for everything you did to make it beautiful and for making everything go so smoothly. And with such care and understanding during this very difficult time."
