~ John P. Rowe III ~

John was extremely accommodating, compassionate and understanding. I was in out of state on Christmas Eve, or my father passed away. He took the time from his family to meet with us so that I could fly out and meet my family for Christmas. Discuss everything I feel is unheard of the day of the funeral, he knocked it out of the park. Everything was well organized, structured well placed the flowers were appropriate. I would highly highly recommend this company to anybody that’s unfortunately in this position of losing a loved one you won’t find somebody better than John was and handling my sisters and I.

Heather & John I can’t thank you enough for everything you did for our family when our mom passed away. I especially want to thank you for the love & care you showed our mom. John, you were so caring and respectful & you & Heather helped us make mom’s services so beautiful. Heather, you were there through it all and the love & care mom got from you brought so much comfort. Losing a loved one is so hard but knowing there are people like John & Heather there to guide you helps so much. Thank you for everything, Maureen & the entire King & Blair families.

I want everyone to know what great care that was taken by John Rowe and Phil Short
For my mom Linda Mason. I have known both of these families my whole life. I have never seen more attention to every detail given by our family. I would strongly recommend this company for any Funeral services needed.

I want to thank you for the kindness and attention to detail you showed to me and my family at the passing of my husband.

The planting of a tree in his memory in the forests of Mass. is something my husband would have treasured and which I hold close to my heart. It gives me such a warm feeling to know that some where in Mass. there is a living tree in his name.

Thank you so much for all you did for my family. I appreciated it so much, as did my entire family. Everything was handled just the way I wanted it to be, by you and your staff.
