What Our Families are Saying
The Winfield Family has helped me thru both my Dad, and most recently my Mom’s funeral services. They helped us to make Mom’s service a nice event in spite of the Covid-19 restrictions. Wonderful job done by Charlene, Tom & the staff.
I would without reservation recommend this family. They displayed the utmost respect for my father and family. My father looked beautiful. At a time of confusion and extreme grief, they coordinated every aspect of the services from transport to obituary to death certificates and everything in between. I didn’t know the first thing about organizing any part of a funeral. I am grateful for their organizational skills, professionalism, patience, understanding, and direction. Thank you Suzy Quattrocchi
