Glad To Be Of Service
December 15, 2004 marks our 76th year in business at Woods-Valentine Mortuary (Pasadena). During this season of glad tidings I remember the gospel song, “Glad To Be In Service.” Part of the lyrics read “Glad to be in service one more time.” We at Woods-Valentine are glad to be of service one more year. We thank God Almighty, the community who have called on us in time of need, and a dedicated and caring staff for our longevity.
In the fifties my parents, Fred and Arzella Valentine chose as a motto:
“Our Aim Is To Be Worthy Of Your Confidence.” That motto has not changed because we still strive to provide personal and professional services to the families who entrust us with the funeral arrangements of their beloveds.
We appreciate our families taking the time to complete and return our Customer Satisfaction Surveys. The feedback we receive allows us to better serve. One respondent wrote: “I prefer to do business with my own when they are competent and competitive, and you are.” The surveys we receive reflect that we provide thorough counseling regarding funeral service options, professionally follow through with your wishes, and do so in a comfortable and nicely decorated facility, at reasonable and acceptable prices. Don’t just take my word for it and don’t take the word of someone else. At time of need or better yet, before the need arises, call us, ask questions, ask to see our completed satisfaction surveys, request a price quote and compare. We are here to serve you and glad to be of service one more year.
We wish you Happy Holidays and would like to share a poem that hopefully will comfort those of you who have lost loved ones this year:
“My First Christmas In Heaven"
I see the countless Christmas trees around the world below,
With tiny lights, like Heaven’s stars reflecting on the snow.
The sight is so spectacular, please wipe away that tear,
For I am spending Christmas with Jesus Christ this year.
I hear the many Christmas songs that people hold so dear,
But the sounds of music can’t compare with the Christmas
I have no words to tell you, the joy their voices bring,
For it is beyond description to hear the angels sing.
I know how much you miss me; I see pain in your heart.
But I am not so far away, we really aren’t apart.
So be happy for me dear ones, you know I hold you dear.
And be glad I’m spending Christmas with Jesus Christ this
I sent you each a special gift from my heavenly home above.
I sent you each a memory of my undying love.
After all, love is a gift more precious than pure gold.
It was always most important in the stories Jesus told.
Please love and keep each other, as my Father said to do.
For I can’t count the blessings or love He has for each of you.
So have a Merry Christmas and wipe away that tear.
Remember, I am spending Christmas with Jesus Christ this
