I called Divine Mortuary about a year ago inquiring about funeral services. I had the distinct opportunity to speak with the Director Mrs. McDonald. While talking with Ms. McDonald she assured me that she provide all clients with something in a compatible price range. She did not ask me to come in or ask me lots of questions. From that very moment I knew I was going to use Divine Mortuary. A year later I needed her services, remembering the conversation I had with Mrs. McDonald I knew without any doubt I wasn't going anywhere else. I felt confident and had a peace of mind that Divine Mortuary would carry my family and I through the full services they provided. They assist us in choosing the ideal casket and flower arrangements. Their help was invaluable in putting together the funeral program and the video memorial of my mother's life. Divine mortuary was very caring, personable and professional, while keeping their "commitment to excellence". Divine Mortuary is now the trusted name for our family.

I used the Devine Mortuary for my Mother who was in Hospice before she passed away. Mrs McDonald, the Director, was very sympathic and professional. She showed us her entire place and told us step by step the proceedure of what would take place and the cost of everything which was very reasonable. When my Mom passed away, it meant so much for us to see Mrs. McDonald come to the Hospice to get our Mom. She could have sent a Representative, but she came. The following year we needed a copy of Mom's Death Certificate, but we were in another State. We called Mrs. McDonald, who faxed us a copy immediately. I hope we will not have to for a long time, but our family will always use Devine Mortuary Services.
