"I'm writing here to show
my appreciation for the service I received
at your business. When I was just four I
attended my first funeral. It was for my
sister and it was held at your location
back in 1976. Since then, my parents
have used your business for relatives
over the years and in 2019 my father and
I required your services again, this time
for my mother, Leslie T. It was a
hard fought battle my mother had near
the end, we walked through the funeral
process somewhat in a daze. It wasn't
until months later after sorting through
all the 'other' challenging aspects that
we realized just how easy our interaction
was with Heritage-Dilday. It was clear
then, we didn't have to due much of
anything, our contact took care of every
detail. Our contact, Elizabeth Torres, was
everything you could want in a person in
a time of grief and need. We went on our
way as you have to do eventually and life
went on. Last August, my father George
T. died suddenly without any
warning what so ever. It was a massive
shock to the family. Unlike with my
mother's situation, we had no warning,
no time to think of the next steps,
nothing but a phone call. From the
moment I had to start dealing with
'everything' I knew I had to start with
Heritage-Dilday. It took me two hours to
drive to Huntington Beach, when I got
there I called H-D immediately. Although
I heard during the pandemic memorial
services where backed up, I was greeted
with a calm voice that said they would
pick up my father in one hour and a half,
they where there in forty-five minutes!
That was the beginning of many quick,
professional and just 'easy' steps that
where performed by your company. After
that day, the only person I dealt with was
Elizabeth Torres. I wouldn't have wanted
it any other way! She took care of
everything. Unlike when my mom died,
my father wasn't here to help, but
Elizabeth was. Be it our questions in the
beginning of what to do or choices in
urns at the end, it was always dealt with
by Elizabeth; quickly, professionally and
most importantly with a feeling that she
actually cared that we got what we
wanted and had no concerns or issues
that were not answered. With any loss,
there is always concerns you will not be
level headed to make the best decisions
regarding your loved ones, that is not the
case working with H-D and especially
Elizabeth Torres. Sitting back now, I can
honestly say I can not think of one thing,
one situation, one issue that I wasn't
completely satisfied with. I look back and
realize it was easy because I wasn't
dealing with a corporation, I was dealing
with a kind, thoughtful person who went
out of her way to make everything just
right in our time of need; Thank you H-D
and Thank you Elizabeth Torres."

"I would like to take this opportunity to let all of you know how much we appreciate your caring, competent, and remarkable attention that you exercised on our behalf at Heritage-Dilday Mortuary Services after the passing of my father, George J. We could not have possibly asked for anything more when it came to taking care of the necessary, emotionally difficult, arrangements at a time in our lives when someone so near and dear to us has passed away. Your experienced and kind capabilities certainly eased our burden greatly during our time of loss. As a result, along with the fact that dad lived an exemplary life for which there are no regrets, all of you at Hertiage-Dilday made the process of saying goodbye to dad so much easier, much less sorrowful, and so dignified. With your help we got dad sent off right......down to the most intitmate detail. We couldn't be more satisfied with our choice of having Heritage-Dilday manage dad's mortuary services.

We want to name everyone at Heritage who had a direct hand in helping us with dad's memorial services. Each and every one of you were very pleasant, helpful, caring, and competent. So, many thanks to you, Cesar, Elizabeth, Courtney, and Bridget. We will never forget the exceptional and wonderful services, and kindnesses, that all of you afforded us during a most difficult time in our lives. You all took the sting out of an otherwise sorrowful process and added some bright and warm light to an otherwise dark episode in our lives. Dad is now resting at peace, and our remebrances of managing dad's burial wishes will be pleasant ones, even bringing a smile to our faces. Again, we cannot thank all of you enough for this."

We handled my father's passing through Heritage, and they were fantastic throughout the whole process. They were polite and understanding, and did everything that they were supposed to in a timely manner. Andy even obtained a burial flag (on short notice) for my dad since he was a veteran.   I went back to Andy 6 months later to ask him to transfer my father's ashes into a flag case urn that I had purchased elsewhere. Not only did he transfer the ashes for me (at no charge), he re-folded the flag for me several times until it was perfect (he insisted that it be perfect), and he helped me get the name plate on straight and evenly. Now my dad has a dignified resting place.   It's a morbid business, but when you have to deal with it (as we all do sooner or later), Heritage makes it easier to get through with their professional service.

My husband and I have been associated with Heritage Memorial for the past three years.  Our first contact was with Shirley Lain.  She helped  us make our final arrangements.  We actualy met with her twice.  The first time she gave us all the information we needed to make an informed decision and then second time was to make the final arrangements.  Ms. Lain is so warm and caring.  She is knowledgable in her field and makes sure she answers all your questions.  Once we decided what we needed, so made it wasy to get everything completed.  She also encouraged us to make sure our wills were in order.  I highly recommend Shirley Lain and Heritage Memorial to anyone who would like to get all their final arrangements made in advance.  Thank you for all you assistance in this matter.
