My father Sripati Bhattacharyya passed away early morning on Sunday November 1st. Having never dealt with a death right in our own home, my mother and I had to quickly figure out funeral planning that was also in line with our Hindu tradition of cremation. So we went through a list of funeral homes in the area that did cremation. After many calls, it was obvious that Oakmont really stood out in terms of service and responsiveness. Beatriz was our initial contact and took the time to explain the various price packages and made recommendations on what would be best suited for our needs. She also took the time to explain the various logistics, such as the details of obtaining death certificates, which were unknown to us. These things were taken care of in a timely manner.
Furthermore, we went in person the day before the cremation to finalize logistics. At that time we met with Phillip, who was truly extraordinary. He demonstrated such compassion and care, taking the time to answer every question we had while showing genuine sensitivity for our loss. Also, as the cremation took place in the era of COVID, we were comforted by the COVID restrictions to ensure the safety of those who chose to attend our socially distanced, limited service.
The day of the open casket and cremation went so smoothly. The flower arrangement as part of our package was simply stunning, as was the casket. Phillip and the staff were attentive and respectful. The embalming was excellently done, making my father look natural and peaceful. The location of Oakmont was also exquisite. The crematorium was conveniently located on the same grounds, so it was a short walk from the area of the open-casket.
I commend Oakmont for making such a painful milestone into a beautiful, compassionate, and seamless experience for my family. We were treated with great respect and guidance. We highly recommend Oakmont mortuary for anyone needing funeral services.
I want to thank you for the wonderful help you were to our family upon the passing of our Mom, Helen Kjelland. The service was lovely and we appreciated your skills in guiding us in our decisions at a difficult time. It is evident you have a calling for the work you do and we are so grateful to be blessed by that. Thanks so much for everything.
