“Our family would like to thank you for all your help during our time of loss. We were very impressed with how everything was handled — from your quick response the night of J’s passing — quick and with great respect in removing him from our home, to the processing of all the paperwork and details and to how wonderful he looked at the final private viewing for our family. It meant a lot that we could all be together to see him one final time. Thank you again for everything.”
