Dear Mr. Bass,

I hardly know where to begin.  From the moment I walked into your business I knew this is where I wanted the service for my husband to be conducted.  Christine Gregory was empathetic, efficient and extremely knowledgeable and helpful.  All questions were answered and I left knowing my wishes would be respected.

I never had to "check up" on any details as Christine kept me informed and every step.

As you are well aware, the death of a loved one, especially unexpectedly, places a huge emotional burden on the family.  Your beautiful facility and especially Christine removed a huge task and allowed our family to grieve together knowing things were in good hands.

Thank You All
