Recently I called the Beecher & Bennett funeral home to ask advice on how to have the veterans attend my brother’s burial , at Walnet Grove. He had passed in Florida and we were having a private burial in CT. I just expected a phone number to call, but they told me they would handle all the arrangements for the Vets to attend. They did just so, and it was an honor for us to have the Vets there that day. All went smoothly thanks to the Beecher Bennett Funeral Home.
