"From the very beginning Amanda and the team at Stratford Funeral Home showed my family and I so much compassion and made our decision making very easy. Losing a loved one is not easy nor is planning such a sad unexpected even but Amanda and the team showedbus that we were not alone and that they would do everything possible to help us get through this very difficult situation. We had previously had a terrible experience with another funeral home and the staff at Stratford showed us that even as a business that deals with such a delicate situation everyday you can still take the time to show compassion. This team went above and beyond for us. Our family is so thankful for their help throught our planning."
