A few words from our Families...

It takes a very special person to do what you do for families so very well. When our loved ones die, we are in shock and denial. I know the first meeting with you to talk about Bill's arrangements, it was extremely difficult for me to make those important funeral decisions. I couldn't have done it without my son or daughter, but you made it so much easier for all of us. You were so kind and compassionate, understanding what we were feeling and thinking. You helped guide us in each decision without being pushy in any way. Your calm reassurance, especially as I stressed over the expenses, was so comforting. I knew that you were the perfect person to entrust Bill's care to.
I had experienced your kind ways when my Mom passed away and that's why I requested you again. And I am so glad I did. When we bombarded you with multiple text messages, emails, and phone calls, you were never irritated or made us feel like we were bothering you. You accommodated our 'every wish' and made it the best it could be in the middle of a Pandemic. When you assured me that you would 'take care' of me in relation to COVID precautions, I trusted you and you followed through with that promise.
Every encounter I have had with you, you have demonstrated nothing but total professionalism - but more importantly, caring and compassion. And you always ask how we are all doing and I know that you sincerely mean it.
I know this is 'your job', but not everyone does their job so well. I just wanted to let you know how much your 'care' of us means to us. I think you go above and beyond and in the worst hours of our lives, it makes a big difference. We are so grateful for you.
