"Dear Mr. Little,
We would like to thank you for your kindness and generosity to our family. When both John's mother Sylvia, and Ann's mother Aase passed away in 2014, we were blessed to have Zane take care of their final arrengements. Everything was handled beautifully, far beyond our expectations. It was a difficult year for our family, but you and Zane made it less so.

"Kudos to Kim Nobert, Manager of "Alternatives Funeral & Cremation Services®", who assisted our family following Dad's death. Our dealings with Kim and her company were so much easier and far less expensive than the other funeral company we have dealt with in the past. We did not have to go back and forth to the funeral parlor, she came to our house three times. Kim was very compassionate, gracious and helpful in getting Dad's affairs in order and we are very grateful to her for that."
Thanks again Kim
This message is for Kim.
I really want to thank you for the compassion in which you showed me the day that I came to your office to say good bye to my aunt. You will never know what being able to do that did for me. Also the way in which you dealt with me will always be remembered, the time you took, which I'm sure you didn't have is greatly appreciated.
You are very good at your job and it is very clear how it is so much more than a job to you. I just wanted to pass on a great deal of thanks to you now that I've had a chance to look back on those days.
Thank you again,
Hi Geoffrey & Kim;
On behalf of my Mother, my Brother and myself, thank you for all your efforts with my father's funeral arrangements. You were sensitive to our needs during such a difficult time in our lives. You did a great job! Much Appreciated.
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."

"Thank you very much for handling the remains of my precious husband with tact and class. It made it easier for myself and family."
"Circumstances arose that made it necessary to utilize your services. We found Alternatives services extremely satisfactory with none of the usual push to spend the hard earned mighty dollar at a very vulnerable time. Thank you for that."

“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”
The L. Family
“You were courteous, helped us understand the procedures and showed compassion. The home arrangement was beneficial and convenient for our family as we were all together. The cost was lower in comparison to other services. We were totally satisfied and recommend your services to others.”
The C. Family
“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.”
“On behalf of the estate and the members of the family, I thank you very much for the exceptional quality of service you provided.”
“Thank you so much for all your help. You made it so much easier in planning Mom’s service. We couldn’t have done it without you.”
