Would you recommend them?

They have all of our information, but no, we haven't used them yet.

I was disappointed. Only brown on one side.

Oh. Maybe I shouldn't have said that.

You girls are irreverently funny. Thank God you did not have an experience to relate yet.

We visited them and gave them all of our information. Didn't buy the contract as we don't know where we will be when we die. I know you can buy that insurance policy, but we have their card and know where to call when the time comes. If we are in this area, we plan to use them. I know we are taking a chance leaving it open as their prices are sure to rise.
I would be interested in knowing what everyone else is doingl We have niches in Illinois.

Hubby and I bought and paid for our cremation at Florida Cremation. Hoping not to have to use it for a long time! We both lost our parents and believe me, it is much easier when arrangements are done in advance. Anyway, they were professional, friendly and did not rush us as we asked a lot of questions. I just believe it was the right thing to do for our children.

We used them when my Mom died in 2012. They were very nice and kind when we were a mess. I did some research on urns and Dad saw a double one he really liked. Strange in a way as I saw it and first thought was Mom would love that one. As soon as Dad saw it he said that one. They were able to order it for us. We/I were very pleased with them. When the time comes and I hope not for a very long time that's where Dad be handled.

Curious what the price is. My mother prepaid for cremation with an Ohio company approximately $600 about 20 years ago. She is in Florida now and when I called to inquire they said just let them know who is handling the cremation and they will forward the funds. I don't think the price has gone up that much, but I could be "dead" wrong.
