“I was so touched by the lovely event you created this last week in memory of my mother and so many others. It will be a year ago next week that my mother passed away. I enter this holiday with mixed emotions. Your lovely event was a generous gift to so many. I was so fortunate to have a mom with the foresight to plan ahead for her funeral (she didn’t want her children burdened with the cost). Little did I know we had chosen a funeral home that is so empathetic and caring for their clients. From start to finish, I felt your family gently guiding me through my fog. God bless you all for the genuine concern you have for those of us who are grieving. You are a gift to my family and this community."
