    "Our heartfelt thank you for all the help, suggestions,guidance and caring Mike & staff provided our family for the services for our sweet Uncle Clarence. With your expertise we were able to support our aunt through the loss of her husband of 66 years.We never worried about a thing; the day was absolutely perfect. Two stand-out moments...taking the funeral procession past the only home my aunt & uncle have ever lived in, and at the grave site after Mike gave the information about the lunch, he added that "everyone should have an aunt like Aunt Betty". It is little things like that that make all the difference to a grieving family. We will always be thankful to you! -Michael & Lynn Fettes"
