I was a partner at Rosewood Funeral Chapels until I retired in May 2016. I had the pleasure of knowing the Epley Family from the early 70's. I took care of the family several times helping them arrange funerals when I was at Rosewood. They were always a pleasure to work with. We remained friends through the years. You cannot find a finer family than the Epley's. May god bring his blessings upon the entire family.
