"Because Juanita Cox was the Funeral Director for my mother's funeral in January 2020 and did such a great job, we requested her as the Director for my Dad's services. She made the entire experience much better for us. She was very available in spite of other demands on her time. She was patient with the family and took a lot of stress off of us. I have already recommended her to distant family members."
