Words About Our Services
Trey--The family wanted me to pass on to you how much they appreciated the dignity and sincere kindness with which you handled Betty's arrangements. Please accept our gratitude. Ken Steiniger
Dear Keith, I am essentially incapable of expressing the confidence and comfort I had with you helping out so critically after the loss of my wife Kris. Thank you for making it work in terms of our being able to bring two different groups to visit and see her, particularly her parents. God Bless You, Matt Stolwyk
Dear Doug, I want to thank you for the arrangements you made for Gene’s service. Everything ran smoothly and seemed to fall into place. I was very pleased. Fondly, June Cole
Trey---Many thanks for a memorable funeral service. Jim Brady
