Nick, I didn't want to wait another day to drop you a note and express my thanks to you and your staff on the wonderful service you provided for our sister Dorothy. It has been a month since she passed away and we are still talking about that day. The last time the family saw her at Valentine's we were shocked at her condition, we thought is this how we are to remember her? Those memories would have haunted us forever. Then you worked your magic and when we walked in the funeral home the day of the viewing, not knowing what to expect, we were just amazed and so thankful for what we saw...she looked so peaceful and beautiful. We couldn't have been more surprised and pleased. Thank you, we will always be grateful for your work and the entire experience. Rev. Joe Wolfe's words were uplifting and comforting...we didn't even mind the mud at the gravesite. To bring the day to a close, over 20 family members and friends gathered at the house to share stories, good food and reflect on the day. What a perfect way to honor our sister, I know she would have been pleased. Nick, you know you have our approval for all the services you have provided and you will always be highly recommended!
