Scott McAulay and Linda were recommended to me by a pastor friend after my wife Renee passed away.  They took such great care of me, and couldn’t have been more gracious in how they handled our situation.

I would highly recommend them to any and everyone who finds themselves needing these services.   They made a bad time in my life just a bit easier by being so kind and helping me do what’s best for our budget.  There was NO over selling, no pushing to buy anything extra, nothing like that.  Scott told me what had to be done and that’s what we did.

Thank you Scott and Linda for being so gracious and kind to us, and for being honest with what we had to have.  You’re the best.

Scott and his family handled the cremation of both my in-laws. They were amazing and handled everything with great care and sensitivity. They were able to answer all our questions and provided advice on all the details that come with losing a family member. I highly recommend them.

Over the course of the past 15 years, New Options (Gus and Scott) have handled 5 funerals for our family, most recently our son.  Scott and Gus and their staff took care of our family with tender loving care. They prayed with us, counseled with us, answered all of our questions about the process, saw to every detail, and even thought of things we didn’t think of. They helped arrange the burial and memorial service, and were with us every step of the way. We have referred numerous friends to them and I know of several other families who have been served by New Options, and have never heard anything but the highest praise. I always highly recommend Gus, Scott, Linda and Peggy.  They are an amazing family and really care about the families they take care of.
