What our families say...

“I recently traveled to Florida to attend the funeral of a dear relative. It was not an easy trip to make, as I am disabled and travel with my faithful service dog, Whistler. The staff at Michels and Lundquist were so kind and thoughtful and welcomed Whistler and I into their establishment and made sure we were both comfortable. The service was wonderful, so personalized and dear Aunt Glenda looked so beautiful and peaceful.”
