I was not ready for Lewis to pass away, but he was failing rapidly.  I did not have any idea what to do but all of you were so helpful and concerned.  Thank you for handling all requests. Lewis wanted to be buried with his son and you made it happen.  Thank you.                                                                      Judith Frady, Upland, PA


Carmella was the best!!       Mike Bullard Family 


Michael Okon goes above and beyond to make you feel that your loved one is the only one.  Ashley (secretary) went out of her way to accommodate us with the DVD. Carmella makes you feel like family.                                                                Linda & Joel Kaufmann, Wilmington, DE

Michael understood our needs and offered several options. Thanks to Michael, things I hadn't even considered were covered.  He walked me through all the steps and details, while being sensitive to my needs.         D.R., Chester Co., PA


Norm and Carmella at Shropshire's, along with the rest of their team, gave our family excellent service.  They gave us support throughout the entire funeral process, during our most difficult time.  We would like to thank them. Our father, Lou, had already pre-arranged for almost everything and Shropshires had everything ready.  They coached us through the details and it meant a lot to us.  They gave us exemplary care.

The services provided to us for the funeral service of Lawrence F. Oster, Sr. were excellent.  Carmella Imburgia was amazing and went over and above for us.  She was extremely knowledgeable, very nice and very helpful. We would recommend this firm to our family members and friends.

Hello Norm and Gerry,

"I would like to take a minute and provide you with a letter of appreciation to Carmella and her staff regarding her handling of my father's funeral, Richard J. Miller.  Words cannot express my family's gratitude for her guidance, patience and wisdom throughout this entire event.  Again, Carmella not only saved the day with a last minute documentation issue (finding Veteran Papers), her calming peaceful reassurance allowed the Miller family to focus on other items during our time of need.  We are blessed that she was involved, so blessed."

With most sincere regards,

David P. Miller, Thornton, PA


I could not be more pleased with your service for the funeral of my husband, Thomas J. Armstrong, Jr.   Everyone was very caring and accommodating.  Mike Okon was there for me no matter what the request was!  The kindness and compassion was there from everyone, right down to the gentlemen who greeted us at the door.
