We never had one concern and they made it as smooth as possible for us as they explained everything and patiently let us make decisions. We would and have recommended them to family and friends."

"TOALE DID NOT HAVE THE SERVICE THEREFORE SOME OF THE REQUIRED QUESTIONS REALLY ARE N/A"

"I buried my father 8 years ago using a different funeral parlor. In comparison to what they done and what you did for my mother, is night and day. Your service was much better with my mother than the service I had for my father and another funeral home. Thank you for your service, professionalism, and your character."
