“When my mom passed away, the pandemic prevented my family from gathering in person for a funeral. Lighten’s team was enormously patient and kind. In addition to helping us organize a celebration for our mother, Lighten also mounted a beautiful Memorial Webpage, so that extended family and friends could visit the page to remember our mom. We were extremely satisfied with the services that Lighten provided.”
