Thank you to David Napoli for explaining each step, which helped us make decisions and feel in control of a very hard situation. You made sure all of the details went smoothly, including the cremation process and the arrangements to the cemetery. It was a comfort for us to know those details were in your hands.

I want each of you to know how pleased I am for all of the help and planning that went into my wife’s cremation and memorial service. You made my time of sorrow much more tolerable. I received many compliments about your services and the beautiful Christmas decorations extended to me and my family.

In the past three years, our family lost both our father and mother and the cremation services were provided by Busch Funeral Homes. In both instances, your associates provided exceptional service without ever once trying to upsell or pressure our family into spending more than was necessary, which could be easy to do during difficult times.
