    “I want to write a note to describe how our family felt about the funeral arrangements made by Jared Fairbanks with Premier Funeral Services orchestrated for my father Melvin Hill Garner. My father’s death came earlier than we might have expected. We did not have a plot nor did we have a funeral home selected. Knowing Jared had taken care of some of my patients’ family’s funeral arrangements in the past I chose to call him the week prior to my father’s passing. If I had to go through this again the only aspect I would change would be to call Jared earlier for planning and scheduling. I cannot thank Jared enough for the way he cared for my mother through this seemingly complicated process and made this difficult time much easier for our family. I have been a physician for 15 years and thought that I could handle this by myself. I forgot that I was also a son, brother, uncle, and father. I soon became overwhelmed and turned most of the preparations and details over to Jared. Our family and friends have all complimented us on the professional, efficient, and personalized way that we chose to handle my father’s services. I remain indescribably grateful for the details that were explained and made this a special memorial for my father. He would be proud.” Read more

    "I had worked with Premier Funeral in my profession over the last several years. I have seen that they responded quickly to the needs of the family, arriving promptly and then patiently waited until the family was ready. Premier Funeral provided the services for my 4-year year old special needs son. This was unexpected and was a time of shock and deep sorrow for our family. Premier recognized this. Jared came to our home to plan the arrangements. He educated us, prepared us, and then we did it our way. Jared and his staff communicated with us quickly. They cared for him with dignity and respect. Gage’s Birthday Memorial was a joyous day in which we celebrated a life well lived. Premier knew that we would still have many difficult days ahead. Shari came to my home to provide the aftercare grief support. When we had decided it was time to find a headstone, Jared once again came to our home. He patiently helped my sons and I design a memorial stone befitting for Gage. He sent me countless emails until we had it just right. Our family is forever grateful that the funeral services were affordable and we did not have the added financial burden, or the stresses of travel. Premier has the gift to take the most difficult of situations and help families turn it into to something beautiful." Read more
