My family has a long history with Ken Hamsher, both personally and professionally. Personally, Ken was the ambulance service back in the 1950s when my father was a State Trooper and my mom worked for Judge Hartigan. It was a tight community and remained so throughout the years. Unfortunately one of the first people Ken had to take care of for us was my mom's mother, who passed at 49. Since then, he and his children: Debbie, Sharon & Kirk held our families and friends hands through many losses. In Febtruary 2014, I lost my dad suddenly and unexpected, and 4 1/12 months later, I lost my mom, 10 days before Ken passed. I mention that because the staff at Hamshers were there for me and my family 100% and, though I knew about his condition, they gave their all! I found knowing I could trust these people to work with me and that the services would be beautiful was a great weight off my shoulders. Also, I know this might sound strange but in the worst of times, congregating in a familiar, soothing, caring, place helped. Being with family, friends, neighbors, etc. just brought more comfort, even if it sometimes reminded me of passed loved ones, it was like they were there with us. Jen put it good, they try to make the best out of one of the hardest situations we face. And they did that by true caring & compassion, doing as much of the work as possible, and walking with you through this journey. I'm very grateful to you and I hope the new owners can maintain the quality and from what I've heard, they do.
