"I want to take this opportunity to talk about the special Graveside Memorial Service Jo Schechter created for our family and friends. My husband died after being ill for many months. Jo met with our family, me and our daughters, for several hours finding out more about my husband Horace and our family.

We were so surprised and pleased that she spent so much time with our family so she could really know us well. She spent this time learning about his history, stories each one of us had to share, learned about his qualities, both good and those that were difficult at times. She then put together a very personalized service which included his history, stories including humorous ones, and elaborated on his qualities. She incorporated his favorite music, special poems, and time for sharing by family and friends. This very special process and the Memorial Service that she created helped us all to gain some closure and enabled us to further our grieving and healing process about his loss.

She visited me several times in the months to follow, giving emotional support and counseling. She is very knowledgeable about the different grief support groups and other resources in our area. Our entire family is grateful to Jo for helping us through this extremely difficult time."
