In all of my interactions, prior, during and after funerals, Farnstrom Mortuary has been so helpful, kind, caring, attentive in both the preparation and the process of handling the passing of both my parents. Everything went smoothly - and during that time of shock, grief and duress, I felt safe and well taken care of. They are 5-star in my book.
