I want to say thank you to this beautiful funeral home. I couldn’t have asked for a better way to say goodbye to my sweet Dennis. Everyone I encountered were so kind, helpful, caring and thoughtful. I personally want to thank Jill for helping with the questions I had and being so gentle with her words. She is a wonderful, caring and genuine woman who had helped me understand everything as I have never had a loss so great.
I also want to thank the people who embalmed my husband. They really made him look beautiful. I’m so thankful that my last time seeing my love was in that gorgeous room, the sunset room I believe it was called. It was so peaceful and Dennis looked at peace. I got some comfort and closure that day. Thank you 🙏
I couldn’t have asked or wished for more.
