Dear Nancy & Roy,
Please accept our sincere thanks for all your help with arranging my mother-in-law's funeral and beautiful service.
It seemed like such a complicated situation with her passing away while out of state.  However, your professionalism and compassion made the entire process so easy on everyone involved.
I know it is not easy to please everyone in a very large family -- but somehow you managed to do it. You are the best!
Your help during and after the funeral will be remembered ............ always.

The Family of Marie R.

Dear Roy & Nancy

My family and I would like to "thank you" for providing us with the most professional and courteous funeral service for our mother.

Losing a very close family member is not easy, nor pleasant. However, right from the start, you and your staff minimizied our sadness. You have developed over the years, a level of expertise and communicative skill that is hard to find in any professional. You asked, we answered, you delivered. When we asked, you answered and we benefited.

Your facility is elegant. Your attention to detail impeccable. You knew it was important to us (and our mother) that our final visual memory of her be a positive one. It was and she looked great and at rest.

Thank you one again for giving our family a most memorable funeral service. You fulfilled our needs in all areas.

You can add us to your list of satisfied customers! Sincerely...

Elaine & Peg

Dear Nancy & Roy,

Thank you so much for everything regarding mom's wake & funeral. You both made a very difficult time much easier. Mom looked beautiful the way we wanted to remember her.

Also, please extend our thanks to Kevin. He is truly a special man & an asset to Shook's

Again, thank you so much., Love Elaine & Peg

Joan H

Dear Nancy & Roy,
    Having arranged 4 funerals in the last 10 years I must commend you. You far exceed your "competition" in concern, compassion, good taste & generosity.
     Even when death is expected it still leaves a void in our lives - a void that in time is filled with memories. You have made the passing of my mother, Marie, much easier to handle & I appreciate all that you did. Sincerely, Joan

Liz M.

Dear Nancy and Roy,
    Thank you very much for all your help in taking care of my mother's wake, funeral and burial service. Everything went so smoothly and most important of all the stress was taken off our shoulders since most of the matters-at-hand were left in your very qualified hands.
     When my dad died thirty years ago Bill and my mother handled all the details. Since I was very involved this time I gained incredible appreciation of what you do for others experiencing life's worst "scenario". To work in your "business" you have to be compassionate & caring individuals, and you were both truly wonderful to work with. From my heart I thank you for everything.
     Roy, thanks for letting me keep the rest of the flowers with you for two days. Some of them lasted a long time and my mom's room, at least for a few weeks, smelled like a beautiful garden. Because she loved her flowers so much this was something I wanted to do.
     Once again from myself, Bill and Katie, thank you for all you did and for your sincere condolences. Fondly, Liz

Lorraine L.


I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for everything you did for my mon. She would have been pleased as punch. The dignity, compassion, and love you showed through your work was a blessing to me and my family. Mom was right, you really are "one in a million". ..... She is the one person who would have truly loved the day from start to finish... but, then again, that was your mission, wasn't it? Mission accomplished.

With love and thanks, Lorraine L.

Nancy & Dan S.

Dear Nancy and Roy,
Our heartfelt thanks to both of you and your staff for our Dad's arrangements. Everything was beautiful, thoughtful, and flawless. Because of you, we were able to truly be a part of our Dad's day, a day that we, our family, and friends will never forget. God bless you all. Sincerely, Nancy and Dan S.

Sharon & Joe & Family

Dear Roy & Nancy,
We'd like to personally thank you for taking such good care of us during our most difficult and sorrowful time. Knowing you over the years and considering you good neighbors, gave us comfort as we went through the process.

 We will always remember your attention to every detail and going out of your way to make sure our family's needs were taken care of and handled with the utmost respect.

Your kind words & support will never be forgotten. Thank you again. Love, Sharon & Joe & Family

Terri & Emily, Steve, Tom, Bob, JoAnn & David

Dear Nancy & Roy,

Words cannot express how much you have eased our pain.

When I saw Steve for the first time, a heavy weight lifted from my heart, Emily said she felt the same way. Steve looked better than he has in 10-15 years. It helps to remove the image we had of him the last few days.

Your help in all phases of this stressful time is immeasurable.

Thank you from all of us and, With our love, Terri & Emily, Steve, Tom, Bob, JoAnn & David
