I would recommend the Neptune Society and Bari in particular. She did an excellent job of explaining the process.

The assistance received by myself and my family was compassionate and heartwarming. Without the help, the process of filling out forms would have been overwhelming. I will always recommend the Neptune Society to my friends. Thank you so much.

I was very impressed with all aspects of their service.  They were at all times helpful, compassionate and kind.  I would recommend the Neptune Society to anyone

Linda C.
Roseville, CA

The staff at the Neptune Society was extremely professional in assisting me with the preparations for my uncle’s death.  They assisted me prior to his death in arranging all the necessary details that we would not have to deal with upon his death.  They were compassionate and kept me informed of when the remains and death certificates would be ready.  I highly recommend them without any reservation.  Their service is outstanding.

The Neptune Society was an excellent resource helping my family navigate the cremation process after my father passed away unexpectedly. Megan was able to answer all our questions, guide us to make informed decisions, and made the process as simple as possible during this difficult time.

My family is grateful we found the Neptune Society and would not hesitate to recommend them those in need of assistance.

“I just made my pre-arrangements with the Neptune Society, and it’s a relief to know that my children will not have to deal with this in the future. I found them to be very professional and prepared to deal with all the required forms at my death. I chose them because I have previously used them when my husband died, and they were respectful of our family’s wishes. They did not pressure us in any way. I highly recommend them and the peace of mind that comes from being prepared pre-need.” –Patricia D., Pleasant Hill, CA

“I lost my husband about two months ago. The Neptune Society in Walnut Creek took me through every step of the process of what was going to happen next. My heart is still grieving for my husband, but my heart is also so thankful and grateful for my one contact at Neptune, her name is Linda Feldman and I call her my guardian angel. I never had to go in their office, she brought all of the paperwork to me at my home and went over everything with me. I have since set up my pre-arrangements with her because of her fantastic service she provided me. I do not know what I would have done without the Neptune Society of Northern California in Walnut Creek.” –J.H., Brentwood, CA

“The weather was gorgeous – the entire family was there and we had a lovely service. The honor and respect that the Neptune Society of Northern California exhibited for my father and the entire family made a difficult time feel magical. From your office all the way through to the Minister and crew on board the boat. Thank you so much for everything.”

Sonia D. of CA

“Dear Bari and Edd, thank you so much for helping me through this process as smooth as possible. It brought me great comfort to know that he was in good hands. I wear my heart necklace everyday, it brings me great joy knowing that I still have him close to me.”

S.W. of Walnut Creek, CA

“This world we live in is a better place because of Neptune’s staff loyalty and dedication. Thanks so much from our hearts.”

R.W. of Walnut Creek, CA

“Thank you, Bari! As hard as this process is, I have been blessed with meeting good and kind people like yourself who help me with each step.”

K.G. of Walnut Creek, CA

“I visited the Neptune Society office in Walnut Creek last week. I wanted to make you aware of your commendable staff. The receptionist was very cordial and helpful. I spoke with one of the team members previous to coming to the office. I had some paperwork to arrange a burial for my Mom and Dad at the National Veterans Cemetery in Dixon. She took care of all the paperwork that needed to be submitted and made a phone call to the Veterans center while I was at the office. Everything was taken care of in the one visit and all I had to do was to figure out a date and call the Dixon cemetery. I know these employees must have a difficult job to service people under the difficult circumstances they are involved in. Thanks for having an admirable group providing exceptional service!”

C.J. of Walnut Creek, CA

“Again, I appreciate so much your kindness and professionalism in the handling of Mom’s affairs. It was a pleasure and comfort to me and family members for you and all the staff’s care that was provided to us. I know when my time comes, you will provide the same to my dear niece.”
