Everything from our first meeting, to the cemetery and certificates, thank you cards, flower arrangements, church and obituary were handled in a professional manner. No pressure, no hype with compassion and complete attention to detail.
The Urban Family provides compassionate and professional guidance throughout the funeral planning, the services and for months to follow. Their attention to detail offers family and friends comfort in knowing nothing will be overlooked. Our family greatly appreciates their kindness during our recent loss.
“Our family has been with Urban funeral Home for close to 30 years. My Grandmother, Aunt, In laws and most recently Mom have had their funeral handled by Urban. My mother specifically requested Skip & Dolores handle her funeral. We were in good hands from beginning to end. Peter and Trudy are wonderful. My thanks to all the Urbans.”
