Leave a Condolence

Our family will always be grateful to your family for the many kind things you did during dad’s illness and passing.  You were more than professional – you were truly […]

I felt relived from any stress related to the presentation of the room and my father. Hansen-Spear presented everything (flowers, pictures, awards, etc.) with excellent taste…They were amazing.

You were always there for us, lending support, offering suggestions, and yet being unobtrusive. With appreciation to the Spear family — and their ‘crew’.
