5 star review for cremation services

“My father passed away a little sooner than we expected. I was in the process of arranging cremation procedures when my dad passed. Opal was amazing. They made the process so easy, much of it over the phone and through email. I had a unique situation with my father wanting his final resting place in Japan. Tony said he would call the Japanese Consulate to find out about what that would take. It never entered my mind that I would need to do all that. He did it for me and got the information I needed for when I do go to Japan with the ashes. My dad did not want anything other then cremation. Tony was so kind throughout the process. The day my dad died, Tony arranged to have his body picked up within a couple of hours. The people who came were just as compassionate and kind. Tony took care of contacting Social Security. Let me know the LA County is backed up so the death certificates would take longer than usual. They are very affordable and when the time comes for my mom, I will call Opal Cremation and know that Tony will take care of what needs to be done. I highly recommend them.”

“Just wanted to say thank you for making my mom’s cremation process so simple and affordable. We went ahead with the planned ceremony at sunset at the beach that afternoon and then went back the following weekend to sprinkle a few of her ashes there.”

“The team at Opal Cremation are wonderful, thoughtful and extremely professional. They took care of a stressful and scary family event and provided a kind and caring service. Their support staff walked us through the whole process, helped us with all of the paperwork and took the time to explain what would happen at each step of the way. I cannot say enough about the Opal team except that I highly recommend them. Thank you again.”

“I wanted to let you know how very grateful my mother and I have been for your help in managing my father’s cremation and filing for death certificates. When I first called Opal, I was in a complete state of confusion and overwhelm, and at each stage, when I would have had absolutely no idea how to proceed, you helped with calmness, kindness, understanding, and sympathy. I can’t tell you how vital your support throughout this process has been, and how much it has meant that I could reach out to you for advice and help at every step along the way.”

“I want to thank the Opal team and especially Troy. I had a family member recently pass unexpectedly. I reached out to Opal and they took care of everything. Troy walked us through the process and kept us up-to-date throughout the entire process.

This is a hard review to write due to the nature of events, but I wanted to let others know that Opal will take care of you and your loved one, they make you feel like you are their only customer in the world. They communicate both via phone and follow-up with emails which is excellent since it is hard to keep things straight during an event such as a loved ones passing.

This was a positive experience during a very hard time.”

“They are awesome. They provided us with such a great service, that frankly exceeded all our expectations. Troy, the owner/manager took it upon himself to guide us through the process and help us with all the documents that we needed. Especially when it came to documents necessary to transport our loved one’s remains (ashes) out of the country. He really went above and beyond with his caring and compassionate service. Five well deserved stars. I highly recommend using their service.​”

“I would like to say that I used Opal services after my oldest daughter died suddenly in her sleep. I was completely unprepared for what to expect and I had very little money to do a burial. One of her friends mentioned that she wanted to be cremated. I found Opal Cremation here on yelp. They only had one review, but I decided to request services. Let me tell you, they were awesome. They made sure I knew what was happening every step of the way. I thank them for their compassion, knowledge and attention to all the details. They made what could have been a very stressful event almost stress less.. I truly appreciate Opal cremation services.”

“Having to choose a place to take care of such a sensitive matter, when you have no idea of what to expect, can be a difficult choice. I lucked out. Opal was absolutely great. They were very attentive and took care of everything I asked as quick as possible. They went above and beyond my expectations. I could not ask for more than they gave. When time was running short, they made sure everything happened on time. This place comes highly recommended.”

“Thanks for everything. Your help has made things better throughout this difficult ordeal. Your prowess at obtaining and providing death certificates quickly outshines similar work of the other cremation providers far and away.”

“Troy and the team at Opal Cremation are absolutely stellar. They are kind, caring and endlessly helpful. Troy led me through the whole process when my mom passed away, took care of all the paperwork, and even delivered her ashes in a beautiful rosewood box. Since my mom was born in Romania, Troy even went so far as to contact the Consulate to find out what we need to do to transport her remains to her homeland. Highly recommended.”

“Opal provided excellent support in handling my aunt’s passing. I was extremely satisfied. They were understanding and kept me up to date. They handled most of the communication with the cemetery as well. But, everything was handled remotely for me. If you need face to face I can’t speak to that. I also especially liked the upfront pricing at Opal. It was very reasonable. When my parents died, their mortuary kept tacking on extra fees.”
