Eva did a great job, making sure all the arrangements went well. She was able to be flexible with Covid restrictions. I felt like she was in control so I could relax and grieve. I never felt pressured. Thank You!

Bob and Eva both knew mom personally as well as our family. It made all the difference in the world as to how they made her look. We couldn’t have been more pleased with both individuals. They tended to our every need in a kind, caring, compassionate manner. They are truly two of your best.

Brenda was so caring and compassionate. She made a very difficult situation as pleasant as it could be. She even worked with me to add last-minute photos to the memory CD. The gentleman who was there for Michael’s visitation on Tuesday night was very kind and patient. This experience could not have gone any smoother. Thank You.

We need more funeral directors like Ross Vitale. Will never forget his kindness and compassion and good work – made us feel so very comfortable also. It meant so much, at a difficult time! We just couldn’t have done it all without the help of Ross. He really made it so much easier because of his kindness and compassion for mom and our family. I felt so at ease.
