This will seem fake because Lance Nelson did the most fantastic job in every aspect: facility, flow, details, at cemetery, services, programs, everything was impeccable. The convenience of his location in Riverbottoms of Provo made everything convenient. All of our praise was shared by all attendees, too. This is truly the best mortuary in Provo. - Susan Richards
