Your feedback

We are always interested in hearing from the families that we serve.  Please take a moment to let us know how well we served you in your time of need. We very much appreciate your feedback.

Our family can not thank you enough for all you and your staff have done to assist our family. We were amazed by the comfort of your facility, we never once felt like we were in a funeral home. The modern art, sofas, music and more makes your facility shine far more than any of your competitors. We can not thank you enough for accommodating our unusual request to celebrate the life of our father-The live band, food truck, gathering around the fire pit, and firework show was exactly how he wished to be honored, we are forever grateful to you for pulling such a unique celebration together. Your delicate approach, your sincere smile, and your passion for helping families will ensure many many years of business for Avalon. We thank you for becoming a part of our little community of Southwick. You have created a solid reputation within our small community. Thanks for all you do!!

Where should we begin? Our family went through a horrific ordeal. Upon the death of my mother-in-law, we were preyed upon and scammed by a cremation “company” at our most vulnerable time. Who was there to pick up the pieces? Darren Newcomb. Darren, single handhedly, fought to get our money returned. What he did for our family is invaluable. Darren’s services are efficient, thorough,and affordable. We cannot say enough about his character and business ethics. He treated us like family. -Mike and Marie Hurd

Darren simply could not have been more helpful or professional. Having everything prearranged made a difficult situation less so and Darren made special little accommodations willingly and gracefully.

We would like to thank you for the compassion, professionalism, and unlimited patience you extended to our family. Although we felt our family situation was unique and a bit complicated, you never once made us feel "out of the norm" We will always remember your kindness.

Thank you sooo much for your kindness and genuine care which I saw and heard from the first time we spoke on the phone to the time you carried my husband's ashes to my car. I have and will continue to recommend you to anyone who asks. Thanks to God for leading me to you.

From the minute you answered the phone, we knew we were in the right place. You made a horrible situation for us, bearable. You listened to our wants, gave advise, and treated us all with such care. We knew our Dad was in the right hands by all your phone calls, texts, and emails. Your attention to detail was remarkable! We will never forgot how you brought our Dad home and sat in our backyard to make Mom so at peace with Dad's wishes. From the bottom of our hearts, we thank you.

I just wanted to thank you for all that you have done for myself and my family over the past year. From the time I started making my mom's arrangements, you were patient, kind, easy going, and so very compassionate. I never thought that going through this could have so much in the way of "positives" but you single-handedly changed my mind about that. I know my mom would have adored you, and to think that I was so fortunate to just "happen upon" meeting you, is a blessing in and of itself. You cetinatley assisted in giving my mother diginty and individual attention when her time came to an end on this Earth. That will forever ramain in my heart. Than you so much!
