    The Allen Funeral Home provided a comprehensive up-to-date range of services from on-site cremation to digital media, but with an old fashioned personal touch. We turned to Roger and Josh at the Allen Funeral Home on the occasion of two deaths in our immediate family in the last two years. We especially appreciated that they took the time to get to know our family and our unique situation. They worked with us through an extended process from our immediate needs at the time of death through funeral, cremation and cemetery services, and beyond to memorial documents, death certificated and preparation of a monument. We could always reach them by phone or email, and every concern was addressed promptly with excellent judgment, sensitivity, and kindness. While we hope not to need their services again in the near future, we wouldn’t hesitate to recommends them to friends and neighbors.
