"One of the biggest decisions I had to make was when I decided to sell our family company that had a 65 year heritage. But I knew that I had one opportunity to do it and to do it right. I wanted to make sure that I worked with someone that had my best interests at the forefront and help fulfill my families legacy. The only company who could deliver the results I was looking for was Foresight. If you are thinking about selling your funeral home, I would strongly recommend that you talk to Dan and his team. They were able to take us farther and longer than we could have ever imagined we could have gotten to."
