From the minute we had to contact Dignity everything was first class. The guys who came to take my wife treated her with dignity and respect and also family who where there. The funeral arrangements where dealt with with respect and took the worry from our hands. The day of the funeral we were informed of the plans to get to the crematorium and again dignified and to the plan my wife had left.
