"Our father was a planner and had several things arranged ahead of his passing. So, when the time came we knew that just a call away was going to put our emotions at ease and soon to make our situation much less complicated. Your staff came and I immediately noticed the respect and dignity in handling our father during this difficult time. During our visitation we appreciated the entire staffs helpfulness and concern for those less ambulatory and let use the garage to park in, while valet parking some others. All in all, you helped us through a very sad emotional time in our lives with caring, grace and deep respect. Sincere thanks to Ed, Brian, John and your staff.
