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.

"John was very empathetic and provided us with alternative options when we could not decide on prayer cards that matched my husband's likes. He was able to put a personalized quote that we requested on the prayer card. He spent a lot of time with us in choosing what was best for us and never once rushed us. When he found out my husband liked eagles, he graciously gifted us an eagle statue for remembrance, which we will always treasure. When he found out about the flowers, he resolved the issue immediately."
