"We had to plan everything during the pandemic and everyone we spoke to was extremely helpful and informative. It was a difficult time in general and the pandemic made everything worse. We still have not been able to have any services due to the pandemic, but the staff has checked in and kept us informed about what we can do every step of the way. Overall we were very happy with everyone and the compassion they have shown during this difficult time."

"The most appreciative part of the services rendered by Charles Spencer and his staff was the prompt, efficient and professional services rendered. From my initial contact with him prior to the passing of my dear companion, Michael, to the finalized arrangements, there was a level of personalized service that is unmatched. The representatives that came to my home on the day of MIke's passing, were so representative of the same qualities that we appreciate in Charles Spencer...exhibiting the highest ideals of the funeral service profession in every way."
