Extremely satisfied. The loss of a loved one is a difficult time. Your staff made it a pleasant experience for the family. We cannot thank you enough for all that you did. Robyn was very professional but at the same time very caring to the families needs and desires. She is definitely a very valuable employee.

Extremely satisfied. This is the third time our family has chose Newcomer for our family in the past 6 years. Sad occasions but made much easier by your facility and staff. Very kind staff, focused on our needs but not push or indifferent. Always available before and during service. Felt like we were with friends who understood our own grief and situation thank you.  Robyn is very kind, considerate and accommodating.

We were very pleased with your services. There was a misunderstanding about the flowers on my mothers coffin and were cremated with her, we wanted to keep them for her burial and you replaced them.
