“Jon, Bridgette & Staff, On behalf of my family, I cannot even begin to express our sincerest gratitude to all of you. From the time you came to retrieve my dad at home and until we said good-bye to him at the cemetery, and even finishing a few things after that, each and every one of you, were nothing short of compassionate, kind, and ever so willing to do anything and everything in your power to answer any questions, guide us, and just help us get through this very difficult time. For that, we are forever grateful. And, last but not least, we want to extend our sincerest thank you, Jon and Bridgette, for the military discount you five to all veterans who have passed away; that truly is an act of kindness and unselfishness on your part, and is extremely appreciated by our family.”
