"Rick, Toni and the rest of staff were amazing during these difficult times. I didn't know anything about the masonic lodges except my grandpa was a member for over 50 years. Rick's knowledge of the organization made it capable to have a burial site service from the lodge my grandpa belonged to. I know my grandpa would have been proud because he would often mention his membership to me and had over a dozen cards he kept over the decades. Everything was professionally done. Would recommend them to anyone. We had them for both of my grandparents. They were blessings to our family."
