What Our Families are Saying:

There are truly no words that can convey the compassion, care, and integrity of Jay and his father Jeff. What they demonstrated to me from the first phone call to the final details of my mom's death and funeral service was an authentic, caring concern for my mother's dignity, my family's desire to honor her, and my own personal anxiety at the loss of our only living parent. The entire family felt embraced by the compassion and passionate work that The Fosters extended to our family. I called many times with questions, and NOT ONCE, did Jay react with anything but a caring tone attentive to my need or question.

Thank you Jay and Jeff! If anyone has questions regarding the type of service you provide, feel free to refer anyone to me. You gave attention to every detail, even when you bombarded with deaths, we still were (7), Jay still returned a call early in the day. I NEVER had to call him back or remind him of anything. I couldn't imagine having a better environment for dealing with such an incredible loss like this one. Thank each of you; your warmth and caring made the experience less painful and more grateful that mom would be so pleased if she were here watching.
