From the beginning, John and Steve effortlessly guided us through the process, paying attention to every detail and then respectfully and smoothly executed her final farewell with loving care. At a time when we had other concerns, Parker Kohl handled many necessary actions that left us worry-free and undistracted. The DVD Parker Kohl produced was an added benefit that has everlasting memories captured for us and several family members have requested their own copy. When you are in need of professionals to handle your loved one's final moments, this 4th generation business is a firm you can trust and rely on to carry out all aspects of your wishes. We extend our deepest thanks to John, Steve, and all the staff at Parker Kohl for their kind and gentle manner as they managed our mother's services and for the beautiful memories that will be etched in our minds forever.
