Recent Reviews

Our aunt, Helen Weston, died early Friday. We called Penwell-Gabel and were given an appointment at 9am Saturday. Kirsten met with us, and was incredibly efficient, helpful, and kind. She managed to get an obituary into the Sunday paper and to arrange the memorial service for Monday at 1pm. She even managed to arrange for military honors/presentation of a flag. The vocalist she engaged was excellent and the flowers ordered were lovely. She was a tremendous help!
