Jimmie was professional and directed everyone well(pall bearers, religious staff, etc.) They guided us through a difficult situation with patience, grace and empathy. Highly recommend Hoffmeister."

"This is something no family wants to go through, but my experience with Hoffmeister was wonderful. The staff went above and beyond. Everyone I came in contact with was very professional. They were available to our family at all times by phone or e-mail and even on their days off. I miss my dad, but I know while he was in their care he was treated with respect."
