What the Families We Serve Say

I used Rice Funeral Home for my sister passing. When it comes time to put a love one to rest this is the place to go. I was fortunate in dealing with Celeste, she made it so easy for me because of the caring, compassionate and professional environment she created. Celeste was great in every aspect, including how to obtain needed documentation. She took our feelings and emotions seriously and that was so much appreciated.
Thanking you sincerely, you truly made a difference during this difficult time. Thank you.

Brenda Fox
