    Thank you for your beautiful, heartfelt commemoration this evening. My husband and I chose wisely when we decided to make Voluntas a part of our last wishes. We are truly grateful. And on a last note, this lighting of the candles ceremony happened on the last night of Hannukah. Thank you

      Mrs. Grynspan and Mr. Gillespie, thank you for your comments and for choosing us. We wanted this ceremony to be inclusive of all cultural and religious background. This time of year is rich in emotions… We did it on purpose host it on the last day of Hannukah. Wishing you a quiet and peaceful Holiday.

    Thank you Stéphanie, Denis, your wonderful Staff / Team, and your families…. I recall with gratitude our first meeting in 2008 for planning my eventual funeral, and your foresight, competence, and excellent planning have given me reassurance all these years. I am delighted that more and more people are turning to you all in their need or in their desire to plan for the future. We are all in God’s hands, but we must also do our own part. Merry Christmas and Happy, Healthy, and Holy New Year 2021.
