Steve, John and I would like to offer our sincere thanks for your professionalism in guiding us through preparations for our son's funeral. Your sensitivity and patience with two people that had no idea what we were doing was much appreciated. Your facility is one that we were proud to invite our friends to come and visit our son for the last time. Your preparation of Curtis' body was so well done that any hesitancy we had about opening the casket vanished when we saw him. Thank you for making an incredibly confusing and difficult time more peaceful. With all our stress removed we were able to welcome our family and friends as we said our last goodbyes. We will recommend without any reservations your services to our family and friends . Bless you for caring. Sincerely, John Hergenrother and Nancy Pettus

Thank you to you and your team for taking such excellent care of our family. Mom was a very dignified, polite, classy, smart southern girl with an excellent sense of humor. She would have been very pleased with the services provided to her and to us by you and your staff. You and your staff worked with our customized requests and it made everything just wonderful. Everyone loved the video you made with our pictures. Thank you for EVERYTHING -- listening to our awesome stories about mom, being serious when needed, and sharing in our laughter while our family celebrated Mom's beautiful life.

Thank you so much for the beautiful service you provided for my Richard. It was most fitting for a man who was a peaceful, giving, kind person who lived his life well and mostly for others. You and your staff were so compassionate and helpful to all of the family. Thank you for making Richard's memorial as nice as could be. He would have thought it to be wonderful.

Dear Dan & Sandy: Thank you for the wonderful job you did at my daddy's service. I had several people tell me that was the best service they'd ever been too. They said it sure was nice to have you and your business in town. I know daddy was looking down & saying what a great job. Dan, I know that you took good care of him and treated him with respect, that was a great comfort to me, as you were so willing to please us. I can tell your such a kind and caring person. It's good to have you close, and knowing I can turn to when I'm having a hard day. Thank you again for everything!

Just a note to say thank you for your kindness and for the wonderful job you did on My Dad's funeral. This is a time when it is hard to think about what to do or where to turn. You made it easier for us and everything was so nice. Our many family and friends have commented over and over about how amazed they were with the video of his life and the Honor Guard at the cemetery. Thank you for bringing it all together to bring such honor and respect to Daddy.

Dan it’s been a month and your thoughtfulness cannot go another day unmentioned. When my eldest sister passed away, my sister and I did not know where to turn since we were not familiar with the area. You step in and gave us great deal of relief on decisions that were uneasy to make. Today when I received a piece of comfort from you "In memory of my sister", I then knew Thanking you was well overdue. Thank you so much for your time and kindness; you are truly a Blessing. May God keep you.

Dear Dan, 

It is not easy or normal to write a thank you note to a funeral director, but I felt compelled to share my thoughts with you. Losing Marlene in July was extremely tough to deal with for me, but you and your staff (mainly your Mother) made the whole week more of a celebration of Marlene’s life, than just a period of mourning. As you may recall, Marlene and I met with you several months ago to plan our funerals and we both emphasized that we wanted that to be the overriding constant in all aspects of our funeral and the events surrounding it. 

By the way, that funeral planning session with you made it a lot more reassuring when I finally had to make the decisions on Marlene’s final moments. It was tough and sad to even contemplate a funeral, when we were both in seemingly good health, but with hindsight, it was a Godsend we did it. (I am updating my funeral plans to add a few items). 

You had done a wonderful job handling the funeral of Marlene’s mother a few years ago, but you raised the bar when you provided all the services for Marlene. Here are just a few of the ones that had the biggest impact on my family and me: • You were very comforting and professional when I called you at midnight to let you know of Marlene’s death. • You were able to get me, my son, and my daughter to laugh and cry as we sat with you to make the final plans. You even accommodated our special request for a Pittsburgh Steeler memory box. • Your facilities for meeting, for the viewing, and for general comfort are first class. • You did a beautiful job of having Marlene look serene and beautiful for her final viewing. Many people commented on that. • Your handling of the viewing, the floral arrangements, and the telephone and e-mail questions was great. • Your online guest book enabled people from far and wide to share their thoughts with us and we have captured that as part of a memory book we keep. • Your ease of handling all the details like obituaries, death notices, coordinating with the church, and being so gracious to the visitors at your funeral home. • Your special treatment during the private family viewing made a very emotional time a more bearable time. It sure helps that your personally knew our family (although I am sure that made your job tougher in some respects.) • Your creation of the DVD celebrating Marlene’s life was fantastic – even making changes at the last minute. You captured the highlights of her life and blended in just the right music (with help from my daughter Gayle. • Your direction of the funeral was comforting and professional. Those are the two words that seem to continually surface in my mind when I think of all you have done for us. • Your providing the very appropriate thank you notes. • Your handling of the vast array of floral arrangements and plants, both at the church and at our home. • Your providing of advise on grief counseling weeks after the funeral has been appreciated. Dan, As you can tell, this has been a tough and emotional time for me and my family. To lose my wife and friend of almost 40 years is heart-wrenching. You made it a little easier. Many thanks.

There are truly not enough words to express my thoughts on how Carson's funeral arrangements were handled. You were all so professional but yet I felt like I'd known you forever. The kindness, compassion and gentleness you showed my family and myself was amazing. If there can be a beautiful funeral, Carson's was that. It was the most awesome display of respect and honor I've ever seen. I so believed he deserved that in the ending of his life. I am so humbled and proud to have been his wife. He looked wonderful and I thank you for that. It was not easy for me to see him but he looked asleep and peaceful and that made it a little bit softer on my heart. Thank you so very much for all you did. I know you had to do some special little things that no one will ever know, but I appreciate everything!

Dear Daniel, Recently my father, Leonard Bibb, passed away and you conducted the burial services for the family. I want to express to you how much we all appreciate you and your business for the excellent care with which everything was handled. A death in the family can be such a heartbreaking and trying time so when the services are handled in such an exemplary manner, it helps more than words can express. We are forever grateful for all you did for us.
