I originally sat down with Carrie-Lynne Sorvari to preplan my father’s final arrangements. She carefully explained the process and the various options I could choose from, since this was my first time doing something like this. She made the whole process simple and easy to understand. I never thought we would be putting the plans in to effect less than a month later when my father passed away unexpectedly. The two gentlemen that came to pick up my father’s body from his home were respectful and careful with his body. They allowed me to take my time to say goodbye before they took him away. Nick (Nicholas) Kimmey called that same day and arranged for my family to come in to make final arrangements. It is not possible for me to express how much I appreciate everything he did for my family and I. To allowing my daughter’s the opportunity to view their “Poppy’s” body one last time (we had him cremated), helping us to set-up the room with photos, blanket and even pumpkins that he had painted with his great granddaughter just the week before he passed away. He checked in with us on a regular basis to make sure we had everything we needed. Nick and his staff greeted us when we arrived for the service and helped us to bring in special items we wanted present during the day. They were not only there to ensure the service went smoothly, but to give us much needed support. At the end of the day, Nick and his staff joined us outside as my daughters, granddaughter, daughter’s fiancé and I released balloons to send Poppy our love. Saying goodbye to my father was the hardest thing I have ever had to do, but Nick and the staff made it so much more bearable. I can never thank you enough for all that you did for my family and I.

We were so satisfied with everything from the staff to how Ernie looked. We were going to do closed casket, but Stacy did such a great job making him look more like himself so we left it open. Stacy was wonderful to work with. Art was very nice too!
