"I highly recommend Stratford funeral home. During a difficult time of a loss of a loved one. It's important to feel your loved one and the details are being taken care of with special care. Stratford delivered this to my family. We dealt with Amanda at Stratford who was very professional and patient. Thank you Stratford Funeral Home."

"We appreciate all the support provided by Stratford Evans during our Mother's funeral. It made everything so seemeless, from picking her up from the hospital, to having the flowers ordered to the actual event. Even taking her to the burial cemetery hours away. Thank you for making the experience of coordinating her funeral so much easier for us."
