Thank you for all your help - it was a difficult time, as it is for most families. We were fortunate to have the services in March, right before the pandemic and possibly the last time families could grieve with others. Thanks again.

I can't thank you guys enough. My father was picked up within an hour of my family calling & the man allowed my brother to help put my father on a stretcher to help him one last time. Jennifer was so helpful, informative & quick to help. I was so worried about getting things done exactly how he wanted. You guys helped achieve that and more. For the first time in awhile dad looked like "dad" again. Thank you guys from the bottom of our hearts for everything you have done for my family. We will forever be grateful for you.

I was really over joyed with the help and kindness of the staff. I asked to decorate and they let me. I asked if we could play live music and they let me. They let me come in early and decorate the night before. They were patient and kind. Jennifer worked with me and I can't say enough about her great customer service. She is excellent. Jeff helped me at the end of the funeral get a necklace and scarf and pin off my daughter. He cut her hair for me so I could have some. He was great and so gentle and kind. I dropped off my daughters clothes and Larry welcomed me in and let me sit to wait on Jennifer while she was waiting on another customer. He talked to me and was very nice and he took the clothes. From beginning to end the service was great. They also helped me collect some money to help with the expense of the funeral. This is a great group of people that work at the W. Broad St. location. I greatly appreciated all their help during a difficult time. It went smooth. I could not have asked really for anything else. Great job. Greatly appreciated.

Web obit a very nice alternative to the very pricey dispatch obits. I got good feedback from many friends and students about how nice they thought the obit was. Bob & Jennifer both deserve gold stars for their efforts. They made the paperwork easy & fast. Anything we needed all we had to do was ask and it was done.
