Here’s what they say about their experience with Honor:
The most caring, honest, helpful provider of direct cremation services out there. All around amazing service, kindness, caring and compassion. David, Mayra and the other staff at Honor Cremations helped us at one of our most difficult times. I highly recommend their services, should you find you need them.
Exceptional Customer Service. Walked me through each step when I had questions. Full online process was perfect for our family as our loved one lived in a different county.
I HIGHLY recommend Honor Cremations when you need their services. I cannot say enough about the patient, professional, considerate treatment I received.
My sister passed away unexpectedly last month. Her final wishes were to be cremated which was something new for our family and we had no idea of how the process worked or where to begin. We found Honor Cremations online and from the very start they were amazing. They handled all of the arrangements immediately and made this difficult process so easy for us.
Honor Cremations made a very sad event in my life uncomplicated and SIMPLE. They answered every question (very quickly) and kept me up to date with each step of the process. Honor Cremations gave amazing customer service, timely communication, and wonderful support throughout the entire process of my Dad’s passing. I live in Colorado, and they made signing documents needed a breeze.
They helped educate me with all my questions and concerns in such a patient way. I am vary grateful for this business. Thank you guys so much! I would highly suggest and consider using their services if you’re trying to keep things simple and stay informed the entire time.
I really appreciated the care that Honor Cremations provided. Losing someone is a very difficult time for us all and from the first phone call I felt very comfortable and at ease that everything was going to get taken care of.
