"Family member had done pre-planning with Riverview Abbey years ago. Tim handled our arrangements flawlessly! We were from MN and had limited time to plan and hold a service. He worked with us Christmas Eve so we could hold a service December 28th and every detail was perfect.

"Greg was especially helpful in finding the perfect urn. I was impressed with the care and compassion shown by the young woman who transported my husband to your facility."
"Riverview Abbey knows how to take care of its clients. Tim Proctor, their funeral director is one of the best human beings I've ever met. I have called several funeral homes to discuss our unique situation wherein my sister-in-law's sister passed away suddenly in Portland and our family wanted her remains to be flown to India There isn't much help online available to guide you through this process. All the funeral homes that I called said it would take a minimum of 3-4 weeks for the remains to leave Portland. When asked if they would be able to work with us to try to make it happen sooner, everyone said that's not possible.
Not Tim Proctor of Riverview Abbey. While he said he was new to this process of sending remains overseas, he was committed to help us find a faster method. He was open to collaboration when it was necessary and in other areas, he pushed himself and his resources to the limit to make sure our tight timeline was met. He really jumped into helping us and through the process, it showed that he truly cared as if he were helping his own family member. I was touched by his prompt responses and attention to detail and he truly went above and beyond what I assumed his regular role calls for.
In one week, we were able to get the death certificate, embalm the remains, package it per airline and country requirements and also obtain permission from the Indian Consulate and ship the remains out to India. It's fair to say that this is a record of sorts and no one I know has been able to do this so quickly and it could not have been done without Tim and Riverview Abbey's awesome support system. Such a great place who takes care of its clients in their hardest times. I hope this place continues to do well and I know it will since it hires not only the most capable people, but also kindhearted and amazing human beings.
"The family purchased back in 1957 for all family - great idea. You were very kind to help. Bill was really great to push things through. Always pro's at getting things done."

"We chose Riverview Abbey for its beauty and we are long standing customers. We would gladly recommend your funeral home to other families. All in all, the experience we had with you during this difficult time for our family was heart warming and compassionate."
"Everyone was so helpful and kind. Truly, I felt very taken care of at this difficult time. Thank you, Bill, for taking time to walk me through everything. Your compassion and attention was much appreciated."
