Testimonials


We are grateful for every family we have had the opportunity to serve, and we are humbled by their testimonials of our efforts.






“Mom looked beautiful. When I walked in and saw her, I said, “Now THAT! is my mother!” She had looked so bad and Dave worked so hard to make her up considering her condition when he got her. She did NOT look dead. She looked like she was asleep. I have been to funeral homes where the person looked waxy and makeup caked on. Mom looked so natural and for that I praise them greatly. He made her leave this world looking like she would have wanted to look...Dave has an excellent organization and I will sing his praises to anyone and everyone who will listen. His compassion and expertise in getting things done was well noted by ALL in my family.” –Barbara B.
