This was a very difficult and daunting time for me losing my wife. Brian and Stephanie were very empathetic and caring and made my experience of this loss less stressful which is much appreciated. I don't have much experience with loss, so I wasn't sure what to do, but they walked me through it, and made my experience alot less painful. THANKS SO MUCH GUYS!

You provided a very easy and comforting service twice, once when my wife died and again for my mother last year. I greatly appreciated the service and wouldn't hesitate to recommend Windmill Ridge to someone in need. Thank you.

Brian and Stephanie were both responsive during a very difficult time. Our mother was a long time resident of California. She and our father raised us in California but we all have since moved away. Even though my mother had not lived in California for several years, Brian and Stephanie made us feel like we had never left and accommodated a very aggressive timeline. There were a few hiccups but they were quickly corrected and we were pleased with their services.

Windmill Ridge Funeral Service was very helpful during the loss of our loved ones. They were both helpful in guiding the process and accommodating our wishes at the same time. Their quick response and professionalism was valuable in giving my parents a nice and respective service. The facility is tip-notch and the staff treated my family with respect.

Brian and Stephanie were so caring and compassionate. They were incredibly thoughtful and in tuned to what needed to be done and what we might want and / or need. Brian amazed us with his knowledge of VA benefits, railroad, policies to look into and so much more. They made our experience effortless and easy during a time of extreme difficulties. They not only provided excellent service, but they thought of many small details to make this personal and provide us with closure. We are forever grateful for the way they honored our parents and comforted the family. Thank you! Our most Sincere Gratitude!

DW & Family

Top notch! I think that was the best experience possible during a challenging time. Everything was explained very thoroughly and honestly, I felt like everything was covered and was the perfect way to honor my father’s final wishes. I can’t imagine a better way to do it. Thank you all again very much. Beautiful facility, too!


This funeral home worked very hard to answer any questions that I had. Very punctual about getting information back to me and the funeral home its self is very well kept and organized.


This was my first time planning a funeral but Brian and the staff was there every step of the way and made things fall into place. Very helpful and good cookies, also. 🙂


Kind, compassionate, patient. I also appreciate there was no “upsell”. You listened to what we wanted and steered us in the right direction. Thank you.


These people are absolutely amazing, Brian and Stephanie are the most compassionate and caring people I have ever met. It's hard enough doing what they do for a living but the fact that they treated us with the level of care that they did is incredible. They made my mom's passing so much more bearable with their level of caring. They explain every detail they're there every time you message or call there is no guessing or mystery when you have to let a loved one go and let them take care of it. I am forever indebted to them for what they did for me and my family. I recommend them to everybody they are the best.
