I would recommend Bell Mortuary to anyone who is looking for a competent loving funeral home and director.

Jeff took care of both my parents and my mother-in-law. My parents had a regular burial and my mother-in-law was cremated. He treated them with utmost respect. My family and I were very pleased with the outcome. Thank you Jeff for your kindness during my most difficult year.

Hi Jeff,
I want to let you know about the young lady who helped me with my pet Roxy.
Jeff, she was the nicest person, she helped me gently move Roxy on to a cot. She was very sympathetic when I told Roxy I loved her.
We conducted our business in the funeral home then went to the crematory.
She did not try to hurry me while I said goodbye.
Jeff, you have a winner of an employee.
Some people treat dogs like their nothing, she did not.

Thank you.

Our Doberman Dante passed away unexpectedly Monday, January 28th, 2015. We brought him out to you that night and was able to pick up his ashes that following Wednesday. Stephanie was so caring with us. She treated us like Dante was royalty. You will never know how much that meant to us. His urn is absolutely beautiful. You meet us at one of the lowest moments in our lives, but the care and respect that was shown to us made it a little bit easier to deal with. Thank you for that from the bottom of our hearts.

To Whom it may concern,
On January 15th I had to put my dog (Muttley) down. The very next day I decided to have my son-in-law bring him to you for cremation. Judy went above trying to help me. On the very day he was to be cremated I called her and begged for paw prints from my Muttley. I was so pleased when I picked him up to find the paw prints had been done. Thank you so much. Strange how paw prints can ease pain.
