Testimonials

We lost my dad early on a Saturday morning. I can not express in words the amount of kindness and respect they showed for my dad and family through the entire process. Mr Kerry Jones was incredibly comforting and understanding of our needs and the pain our family was going through. He sang and played the guitar my dad’s favorite song; Go Rest High on the Mountain.

Back home in Oregon now and still impressed and very grateful for his kindness and ability to laugh with our odd sense of humor (a gift from our dad). Thank you Mr Jones (and staff) from the bottom of my heart and my family. You’ve forever left an impression on me and left me with a fond farewell to my dad.
