The reason we choose greaves memorial from attending a previous funeral service. The staff and Mrs. Greaves was so attentive to the family. While making arrangements for our loved one, she was caring, patient and knowledge of the entire process. She helped us during a hard time. The Funeral home was clean, and Mrs. Greaves made us feel like we were home. This was the hardest process for my family, but Mrs. Greaves eased our burden. The bill was affordable and we didn't feel pressured.
