“The relationship that Park Lawn has with Johnson Consulting is extremely valuable to our organization.

“I recently contracted with the Johnson Consulting Group to do an appraisal of our funeral home business. Our local contact person with the group was Dale Espich and the home office consultant was Lisa Elliott. I was pleasantly surprised and impressed with the process and the professionalism that was accorded to me. The charge for their services was fair, the vetting process to determine the evaluation was thorough and I was completely satisfied with the entire procedure. I would highly recommend their consulting group to anyone in need of that type of service.”Bob Nelson – Nelson-House Funeral Homes – Owosso, MI
