Customer Review

Beecher & Bennett Funeral Service Client (Hamden)



I would like to thank the entire staff for doing a wonderful job with my father’s funeral. When I initially made pre-plans for his funeral several years ago, it was such a comforting feeling knowing that when the day would come of his passing, that everything was going to be alright, and it was. I can’t thank you enough.
