In a difficult time, Newcomer was not only professional but very sensitive to our loss. There was no detail left out and we appreciated everything they did. We cannot say enough about how professional and courteous the staff was. There was no detail left out and Paul and the staff were amazing.

The professionalism, sensitivity and caring nature made a difficult time easier to handle. The options that were available allowed us to customize the services making the end results beautiful.

Our family has always used another funeral home for our funeral needs, but after my brother passed away a few members of my family told me about Newcomers. I have never had to plan for a funeral before so I was going into it with no idea how it all worked. I met with Carline King, from Newcomers and she walked me through everything I needed to do for my brothers funeral. I was throughly impressed with Newcomers and the services they provide, while at the same time being very affordable. They made my brothers wife and I feel like the only funeral they cared about was my brothers! I can't express how great that made us feel! Caroline and the other staff members gave us the attention we needed from start to finish! The one thing that really sticks in my mind was the poem that Caroline shared with us at my brothers burial. That was something I never expected, but totally appreciated!! I want to thank Caroline and the rest of the Newcomer staff from the bottom of my heart for making my brothers funeral and burial so special! If you are looking for a funeral home to ensure your loved one gets the best care and attention, go no further than Newcomers!! Thanks Newcomers for everything!!!!!
