The death of a loved one is never easy, but a compassionate funeral home staff can ease the pain.
Employees at Victoria's Rosewood Funeral Chapel strive to do just that.
Rosewood was voted the Crossroads' best funeral home in the Advocate's 2013 Best of the Best contest.
Robert Hairell, a manager with the funeral home, said he was proud of the win.
"As members of the Rosewood Chapel family, we are humbled and deeply honored by the support we have received from the community by being named Best of the Best Funeral Home for the fourth consecutive year," he said in a written statement.
He attributed the win to the bonds formed between staff members and clients.
"Everyone at Rosewood strives to secure and maintain the trust of the families we serve by building relationships which endure long after the funeral service is concluded," he said. "We care for each family we serve as if they were our own."
