"Our experience with Berry Highland South was exceptional. They offered so many personalized options for arrangements to honor our mother. They took care of many details for us. All of our dealings with the staff were professional, and they showed genuine care for us during a difficult time in our lives. Every detail of the service went smoothly and

just as we had requested. I would highly recommend Berry Highland South to care for your family member."

"I do not reside in the state where my sister lived, and in this time of COVID, it was necessary that all arrangements be made long-distance, until some later time when convening of family may be able to occur. The staff at Berry Highland worked diligently, allowing me to feel that they provided the level of care that they would have afforded their

own families."
