After calling a couple of other mortuaries, and dealing with some rude morticians, I called Macera Crematory directly. There, Oscar, referred me to Nicole at Cremation Society of Orange Coast. I knew as soon as I heard her voice over the phone, she was the person I wanted to conduct business with. I explained the situation and she totally understood. As all the other reviews have said, Nicole is professional, compassionate, understanding and above all HONEST. I would HIGHLY recommend her services if you are looking for compassionate and dignified mortuary services.
