"My father's side has used Fulton-Theroux for over fifty years. I imagine we will do so until the last of us has passed. Dealing with them is like dealing with family. It's one of the best things about living in a small town."

"Unfortunately, I have had to plan five funerals with the help of Fulton Theroux over the past few years. In each case, their care was meticulous, compassionate and very professional with attention to every detail. They made a difficult process easier."
