Recent Reviews

Our family was very satisfied. Our mother was pleased with your service five years ago when our step-father died, so we didn't have to guess about where to take her. You didn't disappoint us. Thank you so much for you sensitivity. Pat Sears was very kind and considerate and knowledgeable as well. He made lots of thoughtful suggestions to help make a potential stressful situation easier.

For such a difficult time, the experience with Penwell-Gabel was one of the best! Superior job! Heidi Evans- amazing, helped with all questions and concerns, made the process easier. Rich Menear- helpful with the cemetery details, super friendly. Both made this happen perfectly. Phil Hamm is a family friend and knowing he was there was good for my family.
