Newcomer handled all phases of the funeral with dignity and compassion. They took care of all the necessary functions and added service of being there for us as needed. Very happy overall for dad's funeral in 2008 and mom's in 2017. Thank you.

I could not have asked for a better funeral home to take care of my husband. He looked good as I had asked that he look natural. Your employees were compassionate and helpful. I will recommend your funeral home to everyone. God bless. Brandi was excelletn and she had compassion for our loss.
