"It was the darkest day in my life when my husband of 55 years passed away. I didn’t know what to do or where to go but I knew I wanted him buried at Fairhaven. I called them and they put me touch with our Family Service Counselor. She helped and guided us with love and compassion.

Sincerely,
Jean Hamann & Family
