    Cindy, our deepest condolences to you during this difficult time. Rick was so kind, he became one of our close friends. We are so sad, we always looked forward to seeing him at Mona and Jane's parties. We loved hearing about how he and Mona would try to outdo each other on their birthday. Joe & Christine

    Rick was a colleague for over 20 years. I have so many memories of the 4 years we spent together on the Mallard Project, he was not only the project manager for CQM but became a special friend of mine. Over the years we grew a special bond and he truly was my "Brother from another mother". Rick was by far the best at what he did, he was smart, common sensed, organized, and really cared about the project and anyone he worked for and with. Rick had a huge heart and never seemed to see the bad in people but always found something good to say about them. Rick was one of the best people that I have ever crossed paths with in my life and he will truly be missed. My heartfelt condolences go out to his family and friends and my prayers will be with you all. Sincerely, Jim

    Rick was my best and dearest friend who will be missed dearly not only by his family but by his many friends especially me. He always stood by me and helped me with the ironman. We enjoyed a great friendship, memories, and celebration of our birthdays. Rick helped people even when he was sick with his kindness and big heart. I couldn't ask for a better friend and neighbor. Even though he is not here, he will always be in my heart forever. I thank you Cindy for letting me see him during the last difficult days. Love you both.

what our families say

Tiffany Foster went out of her way to fulfill all my requests, talked me through problems I was facing, and tried to make me feel as comfortable as possible when I was a wreck, totally crushed, and I thank her with all of my heart for that.

The professional manner of the staff made a difficult time a little easier.

Lynda R. | July 2020

Services provided for both parents were perfect, on time, and no issues. Brenda is awesome and strong!

Michael M. | July 2020

Skyler was absolutely amazing. She was so caring and helpful through this whole process. She even went above and beyond to meet with us in DeForest and even to make a stop at our home to drop off or pick up anything needed. While it was a small gesture, it was so helpful and greatly appreciated.
