“So much gratitude to the Valley of the Temples Mortuary staff. We worked with Jessica on the final details of my mother’s burial plan after her passing. Jessica guided my siblings and I during this tough time with grace, compassion and insight. On the day of mom’s celebration of her life, everything unfolded as planned under the direction of Curtis (and Jessica), who also played the trumpet during the service and internment. We were ohana to them and for that we are forever grateful. Mahalo nui loa, Kalaukoa ohana❤️”

“Deenie Sampaio is an amazing funeral director. Not only did she provide service and professionalism of an excellent caliber, she gave us confidence that all would be well and she had our backs during this highly emotional and exhausting time for us. Her personal attention in taking care of every single detail that would make our dad's services beautiful was above expectation. Really, it was a relief to know and feel we could rely on Deenie to make sure everything got done just the way we hoped it would. Deenie provided us with heartfelt service from the beginning of the day to the end. Impressively, not only did Deenie look after our family's needs, she attended to our deceased dad's needs with great dignity, compassion, and respect. She was there for us every step of the way. Our whole family felt Deenie's sweet, loving attention. Truly, she was an angel at our side. Deenie is an amazing asset to your company. Because of her service to our family, I would gladly recommend your funeral services to others. ”
