Testimonials

Testimonials

“What an incredibly tough time. Decisions are to be made and frankly, they just put the options out there and answered every question that I had. Even the odd questions that everyone really wants to ask, they answered. I have already recommended Simply Remembered to 2 friends. One whose parent passed unexpectedly and another who wants to plan ahead for herself.”

Anne of Santa Barbara, CA

“I want to thank Simply Remembered Cremation Care. We found them to be very compassionate when we called about the passing of our mother. They spent time explaining everything that would happen. Even the drivers where very pleasant and professional when they came to our house at 2 in the morning. We were so pleased with the way everything turned out. Thank you again.”

Nicholas of Canyon Country, CA

“Simply Remembered was fantastic to work with. I was dreading making cremation arrangements but they took the time to listen and to offer some much appreciated guidance. Their prices were very fair and MUCH lower than the other mortuaries. They didn’t try to “sell” me but explained my options and let me decide for myself. I can only give them the highest recommendation, not only for their professionalism but also for their services and prices.”

Willis Jackson of San Jacinto, CA

“I had two occasions within two months to use Simply Remembered Cremation Care. I had lost my sister in February and my Brother in March. I live in Buellton and they was very helpful. I found them to be very affordable. They personally delivered the ashes to my door. I want to thank them publicly for all their patience and I believe anyone thinking of having a cremation for a loved one, consider Simply Remembered. They are also one of the most affordable. Thank you, Simply Remembered, for your kindnesses.”

Charlotte Sanchez of Buellton, CA
“Wonderful family-owned company. Caring, VERY reasonably priced. No high-pressure sales. Recommended by the hospice my mom stayed at. An excellent company. We were in Santa Barbara from Oregon and couldn’t have had better care. The ashes were mailed to us. Can’t say enough about how different this company was from all the other ones we called.”
Amanda of Talent, OR

“The Simply Remembered staff are compassionate and caring, as well as available 24 hours a day. They charge less than half as much for “direct cremation” as the local mortuaries. Very pleasant and professional. Highly recommended.”
