"Thank you for Stratford and Evans for all that you do for Merced County. -John A. Sanchez, DPA"

"At my lowest point losing my mother, the price of cremation was a huge one. One that I did not think I could afford. Rather then sending me somewhere else, Stratford worked with me so much on the cost, that it was lower then I ever expected. As a single mother I had no idea how I was gong to take care of these arrangements. The deductions and

discounts that were given to me, were more then a blessing. I'm so grateful to this company. You lessened my pain by taking away a huge worry. Thank you from the bottom of my heart."
