Scott Bronson 5 stars

Pre-Planning Guide is excellent as there are always questions that no one seems to ask before you die, and the PPG gives you the opportunity to answer many of these questions. We enjoyed Russ Critendon. He was patient, thorough with explanations, friendly and compassionate, and he listened well.
