I received a copy of your newsletter in the mail today and as I was reading a thank you note from another family, I realized I never sent you a note! I wanted to reach out to let you know that I think funeral directors are unsung heroes. My mother passed away late on a Sunday evening and by the time the visitation took place on Friday and the funeral on Saturday, you had become part of our "family." The kindness and compassion you and your staff showed to our family was truly special. You made one of the most terrible events in our lives become more bearable and you helped us honor my mother in a way that was so meaningful. Your thoughtful touches, kind words and the steps you took to make things easier on our family will never be forgotten.
Thank you for all you did for us. We wish you, your staff and your family a wonderful holiday season and a happy new year.
