Four years ago, I heard about Neptune Society from a friend. They have such a good reputation and I was very impressed with the lady who came out and talked to us about it. We paid $2500 and I know that there are places that are less and places that are more, but there was something about Neptune Society. My husband and I had a big thing off of both of our minds at that time and they’re very good. It seemed like everything would be taken care of, and it was. They did everything they said they would do.
My husband passed on October the 3rd of this year and luckily, we had home hospice, so I was by his side every moment even when he passed. I had to call home hospice and they called Neptune Society because things were already set up. They called me about how much he weighed and I said he lost a lot of weight. Then they sent out a large girl and a small girl who came dressed to the nines in their black and white. They handed me a rose, hugged me and said they’re sorry. I felt like I was their only client in the world. Then we walked in and saw my husband.
They gave me all the time I needed with him. I held him, kissed him and loved him for a while and then, it was time for them to put him out. I asked if I could walk with them and they let me. I’m not sure they’re supposed to do that but it meant the world. I also got to wave goodbye as they put him in. It’s a horrible experience, but it couldn’t have been better. The ashes were spread and I wear around my neck the thing he had on his toe that was left because they had the ashes wrapped in this oval thing that was burned and I adore and wear it. Two or three people think it’s gross, but everyone else thinks it’s magnificent. I love it. Neptune Society was glorious, peaceful and kind. They’re the best and I’d love to work for them part-time.
