  • Very clear, rapid online service selection and quotation. Final fee was exactly as quoted. A funeral director was always on call when we had questions. Very professional services rendered with utmost respect for the family and my dear mother. Your condolences web site is amazing, and a great way to communicate about the life of my mother and to share the memories of her friends.

  • We were so glad that we preregistered both of my parents in advance, so that when the time came, only a phone call was required to put our plans into action. Your kind, helpful staff responded immediately. Someone always answered the phone at any hour to field our many questions. Everything was taken care of for us quickly (and effortlessly on our part)... even government forms and plenty of Death Certificates supplied. We were extremely pleased!

Everything from the hospital to the cremation was a streamlined process that did not require me to travel to various locations in the City.
