It was an unexpected death. A short notice to you- your staff and services were quick to help me. The quality of your patience with me was so welcoming and appreciated- more than I can say- I recommend your services to anyone.

We worked with Paul Weidman and his staff to complete funeral arrangements concerning my father. Paul spent several hours with us making all the decisions necessary. He was kind, professional and respectful. There was no pressure whatsoever and he offered many wise suggestions which made the process easier for us. The cost of the funeral was very reasonable but what was more important was the excellent communication with family to let us know what was going on at all times and the attention to detail. The VFW service was arranged as was the Honor Guard for the entombment. It was classy, respectful and efficient. We couldn't be more satisfied. Thank you for this opportunity to provide feedback and thank you to Paul and staff for making our pain more manageable.

The services and ceremony were above and beyond. All went so smoothly. So many people made great comments. Keep up the great work! Becky Ashworth was most compassionate, kind, and helpful from beginning to end.

New Comer doesn't cut corners and still offers services at a cost that is very easy to handle. Becky Ashworth was able to make us feel comfortable in her presence, she really cared and was well informed.
