I have enjoyed getting back to work in funeral service, helping families, and being involved in the community. I have a lot less stress and worry in my life knowing our business is taken care of…I personally have been re-energized by the possibilities ahead and being part of a company that is making a commitment to the future of funeral service.
...as we grew older, we realized we needed a better plan to ensure the business continued in competent hands if something happened to us. After all, we are in the planning business.
We had gotten to know the team from SCI over the years at various industry events and had really come to respect them. We knew others that had sold to them and had a positive experience. So we were comfortable with them. Additionally, they are the leaders in our industry and they have other operations in the Fort Wayne area, so they knew our market and were setup to easily transition our team into their world.
We, like SCI, care about our customers, strive to be better, and are not comfortable with status-quo positions. SCI continually demonstrates a high degree of concern and caring for people in a sincere and personable way.
SCI provided financial security for my family, professional growth and advancement opportunities for our staff, and the knowledge that our family firm would continue to care for our community for generations to come. From the first meeting, I knew SCI wanted me to be a contributing member of the team, and they have lived up to that promise.
