Testimonials

“Not to beat it over the head too much …but”

I want to say again how appreciative we are for the way that everyone has interacted with us and the respect and care over the arrangements needed to deal with the immediate aftermath following dads death. I can only hope that anyone who uses any funeral home is exposed to the same level of professionalism and support that we have experienced.

“Thank you”

I’d like to thank you and your team for the service provided in helping my family cope with the death of my father.  The professionalism and caring nature of the team removed all the unnecessary stress from such a difficult time.  I cannot imagine how we would have coped if left to our own devices. From listening to our concerns and guiding us through the overall funeral process we always felt listened to, our wishes understood and everyone worked to see that they could be met. Thank you.

Your facilities provided a warm and caring environment for us to share our grief and experiences with friends, family and dad’s work colleagues.  The live stream made it particularly easy on the many friends and relatives that live overseas to be a part of the celebration of his life. I know my wife was particularly touched at being able to participate from Austria.

Finally your guidance during the interment ceremony was particularly welcome from me. Helping me to lay dad’s ashes to rest has given me a cherished memory that I was able to help him in some small way. Again, thank you.
