Testimonials

Bill,

You may or may not remember that we Belden’s decided to have you create a “Belden Family” memorial to be placed in Windham Cemetery.
Your salesman Bill Brower and you Larry were very helpful and understood what we were looking for.

You steered us in the right direction about which stone we should choose.
Keep in mind, there were ten names placed on this stone, none of us deceased, we wanted this to be placed pre-need.

This may be odd, but our my entire family (all six siblings and spouses) held a “party” at the Windham Cemetery.

We wanted a joyful first visit to our new gravestone, since future visits may be sad occasions.
Not a true party, just a time to observe our new memorial and take some pictures.
I thought you would appreciate some pictures, evidence that a cemetery visit doesn’t always have to somber.
Thanks for the help, we have had several people tell us that this memorial was beautiful, and our celebration was a good idea.

Larry, I just wanted to send a brief note on how caring and professional Sean was with my mother, brother and myself when we were selecting a stone during late December for my father who had passed away in October. He took the extra time with my mother, who is 91 years old and has very limited eyesight, but made her feel very comfortable and did not rush her when she asked questions. His patience was great, since with most 91 year olds, it can be a little tougher to process the information quickly despite still being pretty sharp. Also, during our discussion with Sean, we learned how many of our family members were either relatives or friends with Sean’s family, which put my mother at ease. Also, it was interesting that my mother remembered you from many years ago, obviously when she was much younger.
Thanks again for the excellent service and making our experience a pleasant one.

Sincerely,
