It is with great gratitude, respect and humility that I present this testimonial. My mother's passing was extremely difficult for me and our family and Sister Hawwah and her staff/family made us feel like we were a part of their family. I can not express how appreciative we are to have had you take care of my mother during this difficult time. The brothers that picked up my mother from our house were gentle and so respectful of my mother it felt as if they were our own. Your staff helped prepare my mother including ghusl in which they guided my sister and her friends with such care and genuine respect that she could not stop telling me about it. The Jinazah to the burial the same brothers that picked my mama up took such kind care and showed such respect to her. I will never forget how you all treated me, my family but mostly my mama. Just for how genuinely caring you all were i will forever be indebted to you. I have experienced many people passing in my lifetime but have never felt the way you all made me feel by taking such great care of my mama and all of us through one of the most difficult days of my life. What i have stated so far doesn't even begin to explain my gratitude. You and the Islamic burial services family displayed professionalism, genuine care and respect at a time when many don't. For that I will always be grateful to you. Thank You All for all that you do.
