Penwell-Gabel has served our family several times in the last few years and has always provided compassionate but professional care. We have been extremely satisfied with the quality and personal attention to every detail. Thank you!

Chris was amazing and very caring throughout this extremely difficult process. You don't want to have to recommend funeral services due to the circumstances of someone you love passing away... but Penwell-Gabel treats you as part of their family while remaining professional of what they do.

Service was top notch, thank you for your compassion and all of you assistance in such a hard time. Mike, the director was really good to us, we appreciate him very much.

Our director Chris was always available when I had questions or concerns. Thank you for letting us incorporate so much music into the service. That meant a lot to us. We were very satisfied with Randall's memorial and service. the only thing I would change would be to have the opportunity to grow old with him, to have him here with us and healthy. Beyond that we'd change nothing.
