This is my first experience planning a funeral. This funeral service was for my father. We worked with Joe C. Joe was so supportive and understanding of our needs and wishes. Joe provided guidance when we were unsure of procedures, wordings or other facets of planning the final arrangements for my father. I commend the Newcomer personnel that we interacted with during the service and burial. We found everyone to be compassionate, informed and so helpful. Joe and the Newcomer staff made a difficult funeral process so much easier to get through.

My family worked well with Andrea planning my Sisters service, contract and accessories. Nice, smart, caring employee, as were all the attendants in the lobby and helping set up the service. Thank you very much in such a time of need for our family you all were great. I plan to set my service up with you as well. God bless you all and have a Merry Christmas

We never planned a funeral but Newcomer exceeded our expectations. Very professional and explained what to expect. Our loved ones looked better than we expected. Looked very natural, many thanks! Joe/Robin/Andrea exceeded our expectations, easy to work with and made it easy to plan the funeral.
