In April last year, my husband passed away suddenly from a heart attack. We knew his heart wasn’t good, had talked about making arrangements but didn’t get it done. Fortunately for me, I remembered we had a neighbor, Dave Scarpone, that works for the Trident Society in Rancho Mirage.
I phoned him, explained my situation, and he immediately took over. He arranged for having him picked up at the hospital, and along with Tamela Meased-Van Vactor, took care of everything connected with his cremation, up to and including personally delivering his ashes to me in time for his celebration.
At such a difficult time, I was so thankful to have the help and support they gave me. It helped ease the difficulty of my loss my being able to focus on attending to other things connected with losing my best friend and companion for 36 years. All of the information they provided also helped direct me with the necessary paperwork, etc, that is required after losing a spouse.
I would highly recommendTrident to anyone considering cremation.
