Hi Brenda, I wanted to thank you again for a beautiful job you and your staff did for my niece Brenda. Everyone commented that she looked like a porcelain doll and she did. She was so beautiful. Thank you. It will take a long time for me to come to terms with all of this since she and I were very very close. But know that she is no longer in pain and seeing how beautiful she was in the end will give me a smile.

Dear Brenda,

I am writing this letter to express my sincere gratitude for all you did during the time of my brother Martin Miranda’s death. Your compassion, understanding and genuine concern meant so much to my family. I am grateful that in our time of need, we had such a trustworthy, dependable and caring place to turn over one of life’s most precious events to.

I would like to thank you for the presentation of my brother Martin. The work you did to preserve the integrity of his appearance even after the disease took away some of who he was, was touching. You allowed us to say our goodbyes to the Martin we remember.

Once again, I would like to say thank you for all you did for my family during this difficult time. Also, I would like for you to know that what you did for us, we will always remember.

With Sincere Thanks,
