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.

"The staff was very attentive to detail, and guided us through the funeral planning process. We were shown several price options for caskets, vaults, flowers, etc. but felt no pressure to 'upgrade' or overspend. They also made the facility available to us for storing and serving food for our guests, as well as storing it for us overnight until we

could pick it up and take it to church after the cemetery service. We felt our mother's remains were treated in a very caring and respectful manner. We appreciated that they arranged the photos we provided in chronological order, so they told her story."

"For our family, we had recently lost my sister-in-law and brother 30 days apart. Then our mother left us 10 days after my brother. The Funeral Director Jordan, was extremely kind and caring throughout the process as we planned to celebrate mom's life. He was keenly aware of what we had been though, and we are grateful. Besides the caring they de

monstrated, they did a wonderful job on mom. She would have been proud."
