I can't say enough about Tulip. Cremations are confusing, particularly when you are consumed by stress and emotion. I contacted a few providers and felt rushed by others. Tulip you brought compassion and care at a stressful time. Your attention to detail didn't go unnoticed. Thank you

Tulip was (is) such a great company to work with during our time of loss. We live in Ohio, and my father passed in San Jose.  We just wanted something simple and affordable. We are having a private ceremony here in Ohio just with family. We found Tulip online and feel really fortunate that all worked out so well. All the folks at Tulip treated us with respect and professionalism. The process was simple and efficient. I can't recommend more highly!!

Excellent caring service. I was so impressed with the service and speed and delivery of my Loved one. I have already instructed my family, Tulip when my time comes. My friend that was with me when my husband passed was also impressed and has advised her family Tulip for her also. Thanks so much during this difficult time.
