The service we received was above and beyond what I could've imagined. Everyone who helped us made the whole experience a lot less stressful. Chris- patient, attention to detail and concern for making sure we got what we wanted; Jolene was super helpful with handling the donations and was very sweet; the staff member who was with us the day of the service (Ron) was wonderful- he made everything go as smooth as possible.
