My family and I cannot speak highly enough of the services provided to us by Brent and Kevin during our time of need. They were available, caring, compassionate, and provided the care my wife required with the utmost of professionalism and respect. Special thanks to Brent who helped us immensely through the journey.
I would highly recommend Alternative Funeral services for your loved ones. They are very professional, not pushy for you to spend top $$ and really care about what you are going through and they don't take advantage when you are most vulnerable. The pricing is on their website and their is no hidden costs. Way cheaper than others. I also like the thumb print that they do at no charge in case anyone would like to make a piece of jewelry in your loved ones honour. Thank you for the caring way you conduct your business without making clients feel like it is a business! Hats off to you both.
We would highly recommend Alternatives Funeral and Cremation Services to anyone who has lost a loved one. After my mom’s passing, we wanted to be sure that we did everything the way she wanted her service and interment to happen. From the moment we walked in the door, we were treated with respect, compassion and honesty. Kevin and Brent were so professional and listened to every wish and concern we had. They respected everything we had to say and didn’t try to push anything on us, they just listened and gave us “alternatives”. The cremation and private cemetery service could not have been more perfect. Everything went just the way my mom wished and she would have been so impressed by how they handled everything and helped us every step of the way. The fact that their costs are on-line and you can pick and choose exactly what you want and are not surprised with any hidden costs made the whole experience beyond my expectations.
Thank you Kevin and Brent
We would like to say a very heart felt Thank you to Brent for his help and guidance through a very difficult time. He showed us kindness and empathy, in a understated manner. He was never pushy in any sense, but professional and timely in all our interactions. The costs involved were reasonable and the entire process from start to finish went quickly and smoothly. We would not hesitate to use Alternatives again when the time comes.
Our Sincerest Thanks to you Brent,

From the first phone call at 4 am on a Sunday morning, Brent displayed professionalism and compassion. Brent and the staff were so respectful when they removed my Mom from her home. Brent was a great communicator and was easy to deal with at such a difficult time. He was accommodating and understanding as he helped our family through final preparations. I highly recommend them!
Words cannot adequately express our gratitude to ‘Alternatives Funeral & Cremation Services’ for their service arrangements for our mother, Catherine Kosti. The guidance provided to our family in preparation for the services was compassionate, sympathetic and timely. All details including the administrative requirements and service options were meticulously planned and presented with minimal intrusion during a very difficult time. Certainly, Kevin and Brent are special people, who truly understand how to guide grieving families with a high level of professionalism. We thank you again for such a beautiful service.

The loss of my eldest son was devastating to say the least. Brent and Kevin provided us with the most amazing support anyone can ask for during this most difficult time. From the initial meeting, through all aspects, they were compassionate, sensitive and never once pressured us into anything. The coroner did not want me to see my son, however Kevin was determined that I would get to see him and hold him one last time and it was perfect. Brent advised us that we could be at the crematorium and even draw on the box prior to the cremation. No one I have told has ever heard of this. My other son, daughter-in-law and two sisters attended and colored up the box and then my son and daughter-in-law pushed him into the fire. Sometimes the strangest things will give you comfort. When picking out an urn we were advised to pick one that speaks to us and if their inventory did not do that for us we should check out Amazon. Brent and Kevin really understand what is needed by the families they help, you will not find two people that can do this better. Additionally, they have a program where they take your loved ones fingerprint that can be made into a necklace, something that is very thoughtful. I want to thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for all you have done for us as it makes the memory of that time a little better.
I was so impressed by the professional manner combined with true compassion shown by Brent and Kevin. Mom and Dad each passed away in their own home, an assisted living facility. Hearing the staff there praise the way Alternatives Funeral & Cremation Services responded so promptly and with such great respect and caring meant a great deal to me.
Making a plan well in advance made a difficult and stressful time so much easier - one call and things were handled. I was so impressed by the professional manner combined with genuine compassion shown by Brent and Kevin.

Thank you very much for handling the remains of my precious husband with tact and class. It made it easier for myself and 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.
I cannot speak highly enough of your Funeral Director’s kindness, sensitivity, and quiet assurance that all will be taken care of, and professional service. You are fortunate to have such a dedicated person working on behalf of your company.
