Hello there. My name is Richard K Simpson. My father passed away on Feb 3 2019 . My sister Kelly and I were with him in the weeks leading up to his passing. He passed away quietly and with little pain. No one really knows what to do in these situations. There isn't any sort of training one can take to prepare for losing a close loved one. Upon his passing, Kelly and I were left numb and emotionally exhausted as well as being exceptionally sad. When we called your Kelowna office neither of us knew what to say or what to expect. Malachi answered our call and from word one immediately put us at ease. He was able to take us through the steps involved in a way that was gentle , compassionate and exceptionally professional. From the first call through to the delivery of our fathers remains, Malachi made us, and our father, feel important. The customer service we were given felt very personal and was well above and beyond the call. In an era of "press 4 for this" and " Press # for that" I can not stress enough the importance of authentic, human, compassionate customer relations. Thank you for your kindness, patience and extremely professional help. Richard and Kelly Simpson.

Jason, just wanted to say that we were in today and met with Malachi Friedrichs today and signed all the paperwork and forms. I just wanted to say that he is a very professional and pleasant man to work with and made everything easy and understandable. Highly recommend this young man

At a vulnerable time, it was a relief to deal with Jason at Everden Rust. His professionalism, gentleness and empathy made the entire process so much more manageable. He listened well, and advised expertly, guiding our family’s decisions without pushing. As well, his accessibility from email to live conversations helped immensely as decisions needed to be made in a timely manner. Thank you so much, Jason! Thank you Everden Rust team! We highly recommend you.
