"Losing my dad has been the most devastating experience of my life. I am so grateful that the staff at DB&A was so patient, empathetic, and accommodating. I had never planned a funeral before, but I can't imagine the experience going any more smoothly than it did. I would recommend DB&A to anyone who needs a compassionate and accommodating staff to help them commemorate their loved one."
