"Ben has helped us through 4 deaths in the last 8 months. He far surpassed any other funeral home in compassion and knowledge then any other I have used. Our family needed that in this time of unthinkable grief. We had to postpone my brother's service last week due to COVID-19. Ben has continued to call and check in and provide service above and beyond what I am sure he was required to. Thank you beyond words 💛"
