Our family would like to thank you so very much for your compassion and support during the week leading up to Tommy's services. You all made Tommy look so handsome, we received so many complements on him looking so peaceful. Every time we had a question, you would answer right away or you would find out. You took all of the worries from us on the day of his mass. We could focus on being present and grieving. Thank you.

Dear Joseph and Lydia,

I would like to thank you for the compassion you showed our family at the time of my mother's passing. You both have been wonderful to work with making sure things were the way we wanted them to be, taking care of a lot of planning and details. I thought the funeral booklet turned out very nice.

It was a cool day for the funeral service and burial, but the tent sure helped a lot. The flowers on the coffin were lovely, so thank you for your suggestions. My sister and I both appreciated that you had saved the notes you had taken from the earlier time we came in to visit with you, Joseph. It made the meeting after mom passed away go very smoothly.

Thanks again for your professionalism and compassion during this time.

Dear Joseph & Lydia,
We wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed Uncle Asa's funeral and the procession to the cemetery. We appreciate your great attention to detail. Because my uncle had lived a full life, his service definitely had the tone of a celebration. Lots of laughs combined with the feeling of how much he touched the hearts of everyone he knew. We were impressed with the formal procession through Winfield. The graveside service was wonderful and touching. Taps, presentation of the flag and the the heartfelt words from the pastor all made for a beautiful day. Our heartfelt thanks.
