I am so very grateful for Chris he was an amazing guy and helped through this terrible time of sorrow. I couldn't have asked for a better and more caring individual to handle the details of my husband Memorial Service. My thanks go to Chris at Penwell Gabel for everything.

Robyn was absolutely amazing. I felt like I had known her for years and immediately trusted her. The respect and courtesy was exceptional. I can't imagine it being facilitated any better or a more positive outcome given the situation.
