"Exceptional level of care the whole way through for my father's funeral. Could not have asked for more in the kind & thoughtful care they gave us. Complete attention to detail, felt like they were always there for anything we needed. Special requests were gladly honored and we didn't need to worry about anything. Having purchased a funeral package many years ago made the whole thing as stress free as possible for my family. Very highly recommend the pre-purchase of a package and this funeral home. Thank you Anna & staff for everything."

"There is truly not another funeral home in our local community that could out do the services or products provided by Elton Black & Sons. The expertise provided by their staff is by far outstanding. We truly felt that through one of the most difficult times in our lives they met the entire process with perfectionism and compassion. Having used them for our family's needs alleviated the stress already associated with the loss of our mother. We could not thank them enough."
