"Gwen and the entire staff of Hoffmeister Colonial were professional, very helpful and aided us with the details needed to plan a beautiful memorial for my husband. They answered all our questions and made creative suggestions to help us plan a wonderful visitation and service. I would highly recommend them and know first hand how well they were able to help us navigate through this very sad time."

"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."
