Without Duane and Russ, we would have been lost! Thank the Lord that these wonderful folks embraced us, showed true compassion and caring, and were the ultimate professionals. Serenity Cremation is absolutely transparent, which is how we made it through our loss. We participated in the cremation process. We learned so much about the process of funerals and cremations. We were totally at peace, because of Duane and Russ. We will never forget their kindness. We would only recommend Serenity of St. George, as their honesty surpasses all others. They try to sell absolutely nothing. Thank you Gentleman, Nancy and Jason Hallenborg

The passing of a loved one is an especially tough time to begin with. From the moment we met Russ, when he came to transport my husband in the early morning hours, to making arrangements for his cremation we experienced warmth and caring. He and the staff, were calm and professional, yet personable and empathetic in assisting us with every detail. Every option was explained and our questions answered with professionalism. I will always recommend their services to friends and family. Thank you to everyone there who made this challenging time in our lives a little less so.

Russ Atkin was so kind, caring, and helpful. He was there for me every step of the way. Also, the two men who came to take my husbands body were very kind too. I could no have asked for more. Linda A Harrison

I truly appreciated the warmth and dignity of your staff, and their sense of humor was also helpful - appropriate humor needed at difficult times at least for me and my family. The list of "things to do" I found extremely helpful. Mr. Bloxham was helpful with information without being pushy. I really found what we wanted and needed with Serenity. Thank you, Julia Bondanella

Dear Russ: I want to thank you, once again, for everything you did for Ralph and me to make this time in my life as peaceful as possible. Due in great part to your careful planning, everything proceeded flawlessly last week. The mortuary staff in Alexandria were very attentive and kind, and Ralph’s service was beautiful. He was buried in a serene, beautiful section of Arlington with military honors, and I know that he is now at rest. Please know that, should the occasion arise, I will highly recommend you to others. Please also know that what you do, and how you do it, makes an enormous difference for the good in people’s lives. With gratitude and best wishes, Janine

Dearest Duane, Forgive me for being so tardy with my appreciation for all you did for me and Mom. Things got piled up on me here, seeing to her business and cleaning out her apt. I don't know what I would have done without you! you are one of the kindest and most sincere and compassionate persons I've met. Your gentle open hearted guidance made this sad journey truly memorable. It was wonderful to see old friends and long lost cousins at the graveside. Again, my sincere thanks for all you did - and do for others - for me. May you continue to comport those who cross your path, as you did me. Fondly Lana

Kathleen Rose July 07, 2014

Dear Russ, Our family would like to thank you for the tender and professional care you gave to our daughter and mother, Cheryl. We were not familiar with your staff and services but had been assured by a friend that everything would be handled with utmost care. When we met you the evening Cheryl passed away, it was like greeting dear family members. You and the man with you showed great compassion and tenderness to a grieving family. Even though we knew Cherly would be leaving us, it was very sad and somewhat traumatic for her young children. Thank you for allowing all of us to take the time we needed to say goodbye. We were so touched by the careful way you prepared Cheryl to take her to the funeral home. None of us had ever personally be in a room when a deceased person was taken away and the gentle way you handled Cheryl's mortal remains was so kind and careful. Thank you for the hours spent preparing Cheryl for our family to help dress her, apply makeup, and then for the hours spent at the chapel prior to and during the funeral and at the cemetery. Thank you again for everything you did to help us at such a sad time for our family. Sincerely, Mary Anne S. and Chery's children.

Tedd Holman August 20, 2018

When our beloved mother passed away, it was especially difficult for us (her children) to be living in other states far away. The competent staff at Serenity Funeral Home were notified and immediately took over all the arrangements for her transportation and eventual cremation. Lynn Bloxham contacted me within hours of her passing, and he was available to assist with all the decisions and arrangements. His calm, comforting and professional demeanor was such a welcome relief. I had complete faith and trust in his ability to take care of every detail. I could not be more pleased with the process, which included a multitude of services at an incredible reasonable price. I feel deep gratitude towards all who assisted in this process, and could not have asked for a better experience. Thank you from the depths of our hearts! -Gayle Winans and the Family of June Winans
