Dear Mr. VanArsdale:
Not everyone has a calling to help families grieve & rejoice when their loved ones cross over, but God made you an angel here on Earth to help his children with that process. Thank you so much for everything you did for my mother. It was perfection to a "T".

Debroah Safko & her family.


Dear Bruce,
I don't know if it's appropriate to send this to you but I can't help but "thank you" again for all you've done for my family and me with regard to my mom, Olga Welsko.

You made dealing with this situation so much more easier and go smoother and you have sincerely touched my heart.

Mom looked so "BEAUTIFUL" and that means so much to me. (She was "stunning"!) Thank you with all my heart…for everything.

Jean Jawidgik & family

P.S. The "When I'm Gone" poem you gave with my mom's obituary is beautiful. It is very appropriate for my mom, as I'm sure it is for others, but they were wonderful words that I needed to hear.

Dear Bruce,
On behalf of my sister and our families I wanted to thank you for your efforts and considerations during a very trying period for all of us. You were most helpful and professional in facilitating the arrangements for our mom. Your personal attention to all details was most appreciated and words are inadequate to convey our heart felt thanks to you and your staff.

Dear Bruce,
Just a short note to thank you and all your staff for the wonderful care you took in arranging services for my mother, Mary Lanit. While we were not a "high profile" family, all was done with the utmost kindness, dignity and respect. You couldn't have provided a better arrangement.
Times are stressful when a loved one passes and you made it so smoothly run, it was very easy on the family.

Thank you for your excellent and caring services.

Bruce, Linda, Jeff, Mark, Tom and staff,
My family and I are so grateful for the incredible job that you all did with my mothers' funeral. Mom looked absolutely beautiful. You all are to commended on you professionalism. You acted as if my mother was a relative of your own. Your kind and personal touch showed us how much you truly care. You made this difficult time a lot easier on us. Bruce, after the fantastic job you did with my fathers funeral in 1991, our family including mom knew we would never use anyone else but you! Ock - we haven been friends for many years and I can't thank you enough! Great job!

Bruce, Linda & "Family"
You have been so caring, kind, patient, with an open heart; so accommodating (moving room around & filing life insurance). We appreciated your good advice…and the room was bright and open, cheery yet elegant. The video commemorating Dad's life was just beautiful.
The tree planted in memory of Dad was above and beyond, and was very touching to us all. And Bruce, you have the perfect personality for a funeral director! And now, 2 months later, you are helping us with a headstone.

In appreciation and with love,
Jayce Shotwell
Carol Bright
And family of Thomas Gasper


Dear Bruce,
There are no words to express how deeply grateful I am for helping my family and I through this difficult time. You went above and beyond the call of duty. You eased our pain by knowing just what to say, just what to do…You're a special and gifted person.
I prayed for a "Guardian Angel" to help me through and God sent me you.
Thank you for treating us with such kindness, compassion and respect.

With heartfelt gratitude,
April Hobby and
The Rapuano family


Dear Bruce & Linda,
We just wanted to thank you for the professional and personal way you took care of our family during Dads funeral. Everything was first class and as lively as a death can be. We appreciate the good care you gave all of us.
Good luck in your new place. The Building is beautiful, but the people behind it make it even better.

Thanks again,
Pat & Jim &
The rest of the family


Dear Bruce and Linda,
I know my brother Tom wrote to you, yet our appreciation for all you did for our family and especially for mom cannot be emphasized enough. I know it is your "job" however, your attention to detail all the little things you do for families, the tender guiding through the whole death process, the little pin, the bookmark and so many other details that are behind the scene, are recognized and deeply appreciated. I have been through this process many times and from experience I know you are the best in your profession. May God always bless you and give you the peace to do what you do so well always.

Pam Metyzer & family
