Our mom’s funeral & viewing was just what we hoped it would be — a tribute to the wonderful woman & mother she was. She looked so beautiful & so much at peace. She was so sick the last months of her life. I am thankful our kids could say goodbye to the grandma I want them to remember. Thank you for everything you did to make her day so special <3

I cannot Thank You enough for the superb guidance and follow-through that you and the team gave us in our “hour of need”. I can only hope that when my time comes, professionals such as you and the staff are available to help my children with what would otherwise be an incomprehensibly difficult process.

To the entire staff...thank you. I cannot speak highly enough of your sincerity, compassion and professionalism. To Rochelle, Chip and Larry whom I had the most contact with... I thank you for your un-endless patience, caring, attentiveness to our needs and wishes, consideration of our expressions of sorrow and celebration of the lives of our loved ones. Truly, you all made the difference in helping us celebrate the lives of our loved ones and gave us a good starting point to grieve in a healthy way. Thank you is an inadequate statement. May all your lives be blessed as you have blessed us. oh...thanks for the hugs too.

Just wanted to say “thank you” to one of your competant attendants at the Kayla Atkins funeral on Monday at St. John’s. My husband is disabled and when we pulled into the parking lot, the handicapped spots were taken up by the funeral procession vehicles. I intended to drop him off and go to try and find a parking spot nearby. Your man came to the car and said he’s parking in a roped off area for me. It was such a kind and thoughtful thing to do and so appreciated. I didn’t get his name, but thought you should know. GREAT JOB!
