What Others Have Said

We are honoured by the many families who have chosen us to care for their loved one and their family. We have been infinitely rewarded by our experiences with them and are grateful for their kind words.
“After my wife’s passing I worried that I’d find the dozens of forms requiring completion to be daunting. I even joked with friends and family that it would take months to deal with all that red tape.Thank you for the unexpected care.”

“About 10 days after her service was completed I was contacted to make an appointment at my conveniece in our home for Post Service Care. When I inquired as to what the service was, I was told trained staff would help me complete all of the required government forms, deal with credit cards, transfer accumulated points to my name and give me a list of a few simple tasks that I’d need to deal with myself.

It took only 70 minutes to accomplish everything needed and I felt a significant relief, knowing that the series of tasks I was dreading most was out of the way.

I have told a number of people about Tubman’s Post Service Care only to have them confirm that they wished their chosen funeral home had offered a similar service – but no one does in Ottawa.”

“We cannot express properly our appreciation for all you did for us- you made our heartache bearable.”

“It’s been almost a year since you made the arrangements for my son’s funeral. Forgive me for not sending this note of thanks to you before now. My son seemed at repose after a lifetime of ordeals that only he could overcome by great effort. I really appreciated having his artwork displayed so pleasingly.”

“I did want to thank you so very sincerely for allowing our grandchildren in to visit. Two of them had to return to Saskatoon the day before the funeral and your kindness meant alot to them. They could all be together.”

“We also attended quite a few Tuesday evening sessions [bereavement seminars] they are invaluable. All of your staff are amazing people and have treated our family with the utmost respect and kindness. Thank you for being there for us.”

“Your After Care program is the best service. Can’t believe Tubman does it. This is immeasurable.”

“A very difficult situation was made that much easier by your incredible staff. I have had to deal with a lot of organizations as I settle my brother’s estate and I only wish they ran their businesses with such attention to detail and service.”

“Staff was congenial, sensitive and ‘unrushed’. They were receptive to providing details diplomatically, and offering suggestions when questioned. I am pleased to see that wakes/funerals can be personalized & tailor-made without question.”

“I was truly impressed by how well everything was organized and how the staff went that extra mile to ensure the least amount of worry.”

“Although my wife’s death was expected, her illness caught us all off guard and had been quite sudden and severe. When she passed away, we were shocked, devastated, and exhausted. We were so appreciative of the patience and compassion showed to us by the staff at Tubman’s. When my son and I attended at Tubman’s to arrange the service, they explained exactly what we needed to do and when, and they looked after all the details, minimizing the strain on me and my family. The service was beautiful. We also very much appreciated the assistance that Tubman’s provided after the funeral notifying various governments and agencies of my wife’s passing, again, reducing the stress on myself and my family at a very difficult time.”
