When my beloved dog was fatally injured one morning, I was worried that there would not be services available in Mariposa, and I was right. I had company from out of town and vacation reservations that required I leave town the next day. One of our local vets referred me to Franklin. They were absolutely the best in every way. They let me bring my dog down right away, and rearranged their cremation schedule so she could be cremated that morning. I stayed in town for lunch, and was able to pick up her ashes a few hours later. The ashes were presented in a beautiful velvet bag, embroidered with comforting words. One year later, our family met to scatter these ashes on our land. The ashes had been mixed with a little glitter, so they sparkled as the wind carried them away. The kindness and caring, along with the extra touches helped our healing. We are very fortunate to have such a great service available in our community. Thank you Franklin, more than words can say!
