It’s the first time I’ve gone through something like this and your funeral home made it as pleasant as could be.  I’m so very thankful for this.  I hardly remember the day at your home as I was still in shock.  I do remember very friendly people.  The follow-up letters and mini-books are what impressed me the most.  Not only did I read them, but also shared with friends going through loss.  The books helped me understand what I’m going through.

– Shawna Grinnell, Foresthill, CA

 

My husband’s memorial was handled with respect and dignity.  All my requests, especially during my time of great loss and confusion, were accepted with care and sympathy.  I most felt comfort with the booklet on grief that was sent to me.

My family and I are from Florida and had to come to California to make arrangements for our terminally ill mother.  Ron and staff made everything so simple.  All the arrangements were made with care and ease which lessened the load we were having to deal with.  Thank you so much for your excellent service.

The chapel is beautiful and Ron and Jim were very kind and compassionate.  You listened and were very accommodating to our wishes.  No Pressure!!  I so appreciated that we were able to modify the food selection for our reception and you were more than fair on the pricing.  Everything was very clean.  My mother was smiling!!

You were very helpful in our time of need.  You walked us through all the steps that were going to happen at my father’s services.  I would recommend your services to anyone who needs help with funeral arrangements.  The way your staff handled all the arrangements made it very easy on our family.

Very kind, considerate and thoughtful before, during and after Dad’s service.  We appreciated their knowledge of the business and their suggestions and recommendations gave us a sense of peace and serenity during and after the service.  I recommend utilizing Heritage Oaks to all in need of their services.  Thank you again guys.

You were sincere in my loss and made me feel supported and comforted.  Thanks for caring.

~ David Guerra, North Highlands, CA

 

Like anyone else, finding myself walking through the doors of a funeral home to make arrangements for my only son was devastating for me.  I chose Heritage Oaks over another chapel, as when I did walk through their doors, the environment that I encountered was very comforting to me.  It was like walking into a friend’s living room and both Ron and Jim were extremely warm and friendly.  The actual interview room was also very friendly and relaxing.  Jim devoted a lot of time to my needs without feeling any pressure or that I was taking up too much of his time.  Through the agony of my son’s sudden death, both Ron and Jim were extremely sensitive to all of my needs and I felt complete satisfaction in every detail that was handled.  In fact, I have contacted them for various reasons several times since the services, and they have never failed to meet my requests and to continue to lift me up emotionally.  They made my tragedy more manageable.

~ Nancy Haner, Rocklin, CA

Jim, you and the other owners were amazing!  I really can’t thank you enough.  Your years of experience shows in the amazing services you provide.  “Great work!”  You responded immediately when my grandfather passed.  You respected my wishes in every way and you were very attentive to all the details.  You were very professional.  You have a beautiful building.

~ Gina Cruz-Kekahuna, Elk Grove, CA

 

Your prices were very reasonable and you had the things we needed in stock.  We only had to make one stop to make all our arrangements!  I will refer you to others.

~ Jean Davis, Roseville, CA

 

After losing my husband, I was very happy to locate your business on the Internet and to find you to be very close to my home.  The rates for your services were within a price range that I could afford.  Thank you for your help.

The kindness and attention to detail that was shown during this ordeal was so appreciated.  Your willingness to act as intermediaries on our behalf was such a blessing as we were unable to handle those details.  The kind and conscientious manner in which you handled our family’s experience made dealing with our grief easier.

Christina Hitchens ~ Rocklin, CA

 

Life seemed at a standstill when I lost my daughter.  It was like my brain was incapable of thought.  The folks at Heritage Oaks Memorial Chapel must have known what I was going through.  They assisted us the whole way.  Now, almost three months later, they still try.

We can  never thank you enough for the compassion and efficiency that was given to our family during Rex’s passing.  You knew what to say, how to do it, and quickly followed up on everything.   What a blessing that Dr. Ellithorpe led us to you.  Your motto, “Where lives are celebrated and honored,” according to my family and me, says it all.  We could not have asked for anything more or for better care than we received from each one of you.  Thank you!  We appreciate all you have done and especially for your concern and follow up on our well being.  May God continue to bless each of you!

Dorothy Poore, Roseville, CA

I would look nowhere else but Heritage Oaks Memorial Chapel for funeral services.  Everybody was fantastic and the chapel is absolutely beautiful.  I will always refer you to a friend.

Thank you for assisting our family during our recent journey.  We couldn’t have done it without your guidance.  You and your staff were warm, caring and intuitive.  You never rushed us and you were always available.  “A Time to Grieve” was very helpful.

Janet Kern, Roseville, CA

 

We could not have asked for better, more personal care.  It was such a relief to have everything taken care of in such a professional manner.

Beverly Woods, Roseville, CA

 

In accordance with the wishes of the deceased, we wanted a simple, low cost cremation.  Heritage Oaks provided thoroughly competent services with absolutely no attempt to push us to higher cost alternatives.  They also provided us invaluable advice on several issues for which they received no compensation.  We highly recommend them.

William Russell, Newbury Park, CA

 

We were still in shock and functioning so poorly that we particularly appreciated having someone helping us through the whole process.  The calm demeanor and efficiency in going over the business aspects was most appreciated.

Kendra Tanner, Davis, CA

 

Everyone was very, very kind and understanding.  They took the time that I needed.  They made me feel as if they really understood how I was feeling.  They were very kind and understanding.

You and your staff were kind, wonderful and helpful.  Our circumstances were sad and confusing, and we needed your patience.  We left the office a bit more relaxed than when we got there.  Thank you so much!

Lynn Carroll, Rocklin, CA

 

I am very satisfied with the way your staff handles your clients.  They are very professional, customer service oriented and respectful.  We were treated as family rather than business clients.  I’d like to recommend your business to my friends because you provide excellent service, you’re quick and very straight forward.  Your prices were reasonable.

Rosemarie Aldrich ~ Sheridan, CA

 

Everyone was very helpful in my time of need.  You handled everything in a timely manner and with a professional touch.  Thank you so much for all that you do.  You made me feel like part of your family. You were very sympathetic, courteous and respectful.  Thank you.

Heartfelt involvement, information supplied after death to family to help with grieving and much more.  I have already told my best friend to go to Heritage Oaks when needed.

Jane Bidinian ~ Cool, CA

 

You were very understanding and helpful to me as I am the lone survivor and 3,500 miles away.  Because of my health, I was unable to get there.  You had to do it all!  You also arranged for veteran’s burial and services.  You handled everything in a very dignified fashion.  I couldn’t have asked for more. 

Mary B. Love ~ Boca Raton, FL

I am very pleased with the services I received from Heritage Oaks Memorial Chapel.  They were very professional and handled my father’s arrangements with dignity and great care.  Since we live in Reno, Jim made it easy to do business by communicating and sending correspondence via email. Thank you!

I have the utmost respect for a funeral home where the owners have undergone the tragedy of loss and then create a safe haven for those having to go through it.  The professionalism and patience was outstanding.
