Thank-you to Wes and everyone at Roadhouse and Rose. You were all extremely helpful and patient with us and it seemed as if you couldn't do enough for us. My father's send off was more of a celebration than a funeral and you certainly assisted with that. Wes and staff certainly made it easier for us to get through all that we needed to do and have been helpful even months afterwards. Thank-you all.
