Letters of Appreciation


The two words, “Thank You”, do not impart all the warm emotions I feel as I recall the myriad of things you and your staff did for my family in our time of distress. You would have had to know my mom to fully understand why I think of you as family, now. She always tried to make our pathways smooth ones. It seems as though you were in lock-step with her these past two weeks, always thinking of others, instead of yourself, just as she did.

Your heartfelt guidance and sincere expressions of sympathy to each of us is genuinely appreciated. The extra measures of assistance you and your staff provided for us all is prized and will not be soon forgotten. I am amazed at your patience with us as we stumbled along, seemingly in a fog, at times. You valued our grief and, without judgement, allowed us to express it in our own ways and on our own schedule. Yes, Mom would have enjoyed meeting you...and she would have liked you, too.

Strangely, when I drive by your chapel now, I look over and lovingly think of Mom. The feeling is similar to that when you drive by that last home where your folks used to live. It’s a cheerful feeling. And it’s due to you. Thank You!



Our paths have crossed several times in the past year, both for the arranging of my parents funeral services. And although they have “business” transactions, I must tell you I feel you are more a friend than anything else. You once made a difficult time so easy and effortless for all of the family. Everything for Mom was just beautiful and I know she would have been very happy with her celebration.

There are times in your life where you meet people who have an impact and everlasting effect on you and I have to admit when I met you it was one of those times. You are perfectly suited to your profession and are so genuine with your caring and tenderness at such difficult times in people’s lives, but you make it a very spiritual situation and for what I will be forever grateful.

Thank you Bill for all that you have done over the past year to make both my Mom and Dad’s passing a beautiful experience for the entire family. I wish you much success in your future endeavors. I know you will continue to be a premier funeral service provider for years to come.




I will never forget your kindness. Thank you so much for such wonderful service. Your caliber of excellence was beyond my expectations. Everything was flawless from beginning to end. My family and I thank you from the bottom of our hearts. I will certainly recommend you to my family and friends.



More than I can say, I so appreciate the thoughtful way in which you handled my husband’s preparation for burial. You respected me and didn’t try to sell me anything and I appreciate that. This was a funeral for a simple man and his family. He would be very pleased. Now he is with his late wife and son to rest in peace. I would always recommend you and your staff.



For being so kind and caring. My thanks to you is larger than this card could possibly express. The special caring action and courtesies expressed by you made this seem to be an experience of shared friendship and concern. I know this will certainly influence my actions to others experiencing such sudden losses. You taught me much about consideration and caring courtesy.




I just wanted to insert a personal note and tell you how grateful we feel for the outpouring of affection and concern for us during dad’s recent passing. We are confident that he is in heaven, and for this we celebrate his passing. I know we will all have our low moments, but we Do know that Dad is both peaceful and joyful now. Thank you Bill! I will always know I sat on the “front row” with my daddy.



Your special ways and generous heart make a beautiful difference. Thank you so much. Bill thank you so much for your understanding and kindness and for your generosity which was not expected but much appreciated. Again, I pray that you will know how much I am my family appreciate all you did and that God will bless you richly for your blessing to us during this very painful time.

You were so good to us when we came to you in our grief. You have the gift of creating a warm and comfortable space for people to sit in when they are hurting. I was very impressed that you were able to get us into the family car. It must have been like herding cats. I thank you and your staff from the bottom of my heart for helping us through this difficult time with such warmth, friendliness, humor, compassion and efficiency. Best wishes!!!

May God bless you and your family during this Christmas holiday and hope your New Year will be great. Sincerely!

As we express our thanks to you, we want to say as well, your kindness means much more to us than words alone can tell. Thanks again!

Thanks so much for working so diligently and thoughtfully with me and my family to help the funeral services for my grandson become a pleasant memory instead of a sore spot on already broken hearts.

My wife and I really appreciate your expertise, professionalism and responsiveness during our family’s troubled time.




Just a quick note to let you know again how much I appreciate all your hard work and organization. I don’t think during what was such a difficult time for all of us, we could have had anyone take better care of us and my mother. You were such a great help in “prodding” my father through the process which would have taken me so much more effort and energy than I had. Thank you again for everything. This card is a picture of Lake George. The water sprinkled on my mother’s casket came from here so I thought you might enjoy seeing how beautiful it is. Thanks again!



Enclosed is a check in payment for services for my husband. We appreciate your patience and want to thank you and your staff for the many kindnesses shown our family. Your services were very comforting at a difficult time. Best wishes to all of you.

On behalf of our family we extend to you our sincere appreciation for your sympathy, kindness, and professionalism during the loss of our mother. Losing her was hard but knowing her last wishes were carried out with such perfection, style and grace comforted us all. Mom did a good thing for her family by pre-planning her arrangements, down to the last detail, and by planning them with you. We know everything was done her way.

Mr. Stephens, you and your colleagues not only handled the arrangements flawlessly, you added so many extra touches to make the day seamless and comforting. Your attention to detail was appreciated. We are all so thankful you were there for us all. May
