To Diann, Lorne and all the staff,
"On behalf of my family and myself I would like you all to know we could not have had a better more loving,more respectful organization handling my mother, Joan Haskell's celebration of life. You made our lives so much easier during this process. Lorne you are a consummate professional and were so glad you were with us on the day. Diane, we so appreciated you being there when we needed answers I felt like I made a new friend. Your patience was a blessing. May 2014 be a great year for you all."
"In March 2014 we very unexpectedly lost our Mother and were referred to Alternatives by a family member who had recently lost her husband. This death event was incredibly hard on all of us, especially our Father. Two days after her death, Lorne braved horrible roads and came out to our small town. With him he brought a much needed sense of comfort and warmth.
When he sat with us, he didn't do any pressured sales pitches, didn't seem rushed, he was very genuine and caring, He was also very knowledgeable in what was required moving forward. He gave us a great information package that carried us through the process of dealing with the government and bank, etc.. Because of his caring attitude and warmth and that of the staff at Alternatives, my family and I Highly recommend Alternatives Funeral Services to anyone who has experienced a loss."

“I feel no hesitation in recommending your services to others. Coming to our home made a trying time more comfortable and frankly the cost was more realistic than a funeral home”

“When my husband was terminally ill at home, we heard through the home care nurse of another family pleased with Alternatives. They were glad to come to our home and talk to the family. We were so impressed. When my husband died, they came the same morning and was arranged in our home. The cost was reasonable and we would highly recommend them.”
