    Shawn, I cannot say enough about the wonderful experience I had with you and Fives. You made yourself available for all my questions as they arose. You were extremely knowledgeable on every matter to help us make the best decisions. You masterfully ran the service and it went very well thanks to your efforts. I am very appreciative of all you did during this difficult time for my family.

    Dear Shawn, Words can't express how grateful my family and I are with the services you provided for my father's funeral. Your caring and compassionate manner was overwhelming. You were there for us from the beginning to the end. From driving past our street so my father could go home one last time to staying with my husband and I to make sure my father was peacefully laid to rest at Calverton. The arrangements were perfect and you made everything as easy as possible for us. Your personal attentive service was amazing. We thank you and your staff for making an extremely difficult time a little easier. Thank you very much, Stephanie O'Shaughnessy

    I recently had to plan my fathers funeral. Never having done this before, it was a new experience to me. I was also an emotionally difficult one. After my wife and I visited some other funeral homes we had Fives recommended to us. The minute we went there we felt like we were not just customers, but people who mattered. Shawn and his staff showed incredible care, and understanding. That made the whole experience feel as good as it could feel under the circumstances of losing my dad. Not only were they great people to deal with, but the atmosphere of the funeral home is very comforting, and "homey". Even the website was an unexpected surprise. All we had to do was direct people to it and all the information they needed was right there. Thanks again Shawn, Joann, Mike and everyone at Fives.
