"Working with Jason on my mother in law's funeral was effortless.  With a show of sincere compassion and respect he walked us through the process of an out of state funeral. He took care of it all, cremation arrangements, picking up copies of the death certificate, transporting the remains in a beautiful urn, flowers, priest, engravings on the stone and standing by to ensure the completion of the burial.  It was reassuring to have him with us throughout the process.  We will highly recommend your services to others in their time of need." ~ Doreen Tamulevicius

I'm so glad you told me about that.  Jason, Jeff, and Chip, you all took such good care of me, you are very special people, very kind and caring." ~ Ellen Metzger
