"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."

"Our large family thank Keith for his patience, guidance and empathy handling the arrangements for our Mother. Keith was such a comfort to us that other family members including myself funeral arrangements are arranged with them."

"From the moment I made the phone call to Robert Toale & Sons Funeral Home and I spoke with and met with Brook's Phippin I felt so much relief and compassion in making my husband's arrangements. Brook's explained everything to the fullest extent with videos and gave us privacy if needed to make any decisions. I am definitely going back to make my own arrangements to save my family from having to make the decisions. Thank you for all of the trust you gave to me. The facility itself is as beautiful as a funeral home can be and they have everything there you need to give your loved one what they deserve."
