“I want to thank you so much for your support and guidance during my mom’s wake and funeral service. Everything was beautiful and went smoothly - I know she would have been pleased! Thanks also, for what you did at Memory Gardens. I think my Mom & Dad are finally together and much of it has to do with your observation and diligence! Thank you so much for that! Although we miss my mom, we know she is finally at peace and once again with my Dad. God bless!”
