What Our Families Are Saying

My husband and I can't give enough thanks to MacKinnon Funeral. Our son passed away in Massachusetts and we are from Michigan so everything needed to be done long distance to get our son back to us. They couldn't be more prompt, responsive, professional and compassionate. With deepest appreciation, Dan and DeeDee Anderson
