Here is a recent testimonial "I want to thank you for your kindness, compassion and speed, when assisting me after my beloved dog passed away at home. William was able to come to my home within the hour, and gently and tenderly removed my dog's earthly remains, delivering the ashes to me the following morning. Also, the price was more reasonable than other places I had called, who were not even available to come to my home. I have already recommended you to my veterinarian, and would wholeheartedly recommend XX to anyone who loses a furry friend. Karen G"
