"All of my experiences with Hoffmeister have been good. I have attended many services over 40 years there. My mom's prepaid arrangements were simple and not fancy. I was treated with respect the entire time. Thank you."

"The entire staff was accommodating. Any time I had questions or concerns I could call or leave a message, and it was returned promptly. I have used Hoffmeister services twice before, when I buried my father, back in 1968, and the my mother in 2007 each time my family received excellent care and concern. When my time comes, my family and I have agreed to use the services of Hoffmeisters. Your staff made me feel that my comfort and my family's was all that mattered to them. I can't say enough about how warm and understanding everyone was."
