“Michael Gubista took over the care of my husband and oversaw all of the services. He explained everything thoroughly and he even added some personal touches of his own and welcomed all the attendees that were very meaningful and thoughtful. He really listened to me and provided excellent support at an extremely difficult time.” – Barbara L.
