Dear Barbara and staff at Risher Montebello Mortuary,
Please accept my sincere gratitude as well as my mother's and
sisters for all your assistance with the funeral arrangements for
my father Sylvester Denton.
My father had instructed us to go to Risher Mortuary at the
appropriate time as he held your parents and you in such high
esteem. With his sudden death, we needed to move fast with
From the moment I walked into the door in that early hour on
April 1, 2013, and met with you, I felt relieved that my father and
our family would be taken care of with gentleness and
understanding. You listened to what we told you our father would
like and your suggestions matched our needs.
Your command of the situation took the burden off of our family
and you were patient with us and we gathered some of the answers to
the necessary paperwork that must be completed.
My father passed away early on a Monday morning and by early
Wednesday we had all the planning in place and I know this could
not have been accomplished without your services. We all will have
the memory of a beautiful Rosary, funeral Mass and burial thanks to

On behalf of my sister Eleanor and brother Sal, I would like to
say thank you for overseeing the funeral arrangements on 02/03 and
02/04/2013, for my mother Marie Esquivel. When we met with you it
was very apparent that your primary concern was to assist us and
make suggestions that would help us with our final decisions. Thank
you for arranging the service at St. Benedict's Church and ordering
the flowers. We were so pleased with our mother's appearance.
Everything was just perfect. And thank you for the availability of
the reception room. It was such a relief and one less thing that we
had to worry about.
A special thanks to Alan, who drove us to the church service,
graveside service, and then back to the mortuary. Alan was very
courteous and pleasant to be with. He offered to assist us in any
way that we needed. It was a pleasure to have him as our
A special thanks to Theresa. Having her present at the viewing
was such a comfort. Her genuine greeting to our relatives and
friends as they entered the mortuary was very much appreciated
along with her willingness to help in any way. She set up the
easels for our pictures that we wanted displayed. She did not
hesitate in offering to set up the table center pieces for the
reception. She assured me that everything would be ready. Just her
being there made me realize that I could relax and that everything
was going to be okay...and it certainly was.
Thank you again Barbara for everything. I would not hesitate in
recommending Risher Mortuary to anyone needing this type of
Wishing you many more years of success and prosperity.
God bless you,

The family of Paul Allen would like to say "Thank you" to your
staff for the kind consideration we experienced during the recent
passing of my husband Paul Allen. From the day that hospice
informed us that we should make arrangements; your staff was not
only helpful, but made us feel cared for, thus we knew this is who
we would like to have care for our loved one. After Paul's passing,
Barbara worked diligently to meet our needs and took care of
everything in a caring and timely manner. The graveside service was
a beautiful experience for which we all would like to say "Thank
you" to the whole staff and especially Barbara.

I would like to express my sincere thanks to each one of your
staff at Risher Mortuary. You made the death of my brother
Hector more bearable with your kind words and deeds.
A special thanks to you and Gloria for your concern, and kind,
caring words and ways.
If every flower in the world had a voice, their petals could not
shower you as deep as my gratitude goes for how much your
contribution to my father's memorial has meant to me and my family.
The loving kindness and gentle care of the way things were handled
have touched me unimaginably, I am honored to have been surrounded
by such sincerity and Godly character directed toward us, that
words are deemed useless to express my sincerest appreciation.
Alone, words will never convey my gratitude, so may our Lord bless
you for your sweet generosity. This world is a better place because
of people like you. Thank you again for all you've done.

lent my family during my father's passing. It certainly made the
arduous tasks more personal and possible.
