I'd like to say thank you to the entire staff at the funeral home for the professional manner in which you all handled the arrangements for my dad's funeral. Every detail was attended to with little or no effort on our part.

You have recently helped me get through two very tough losses in my life and every time that I decide I am alone to get through a difficult day I receive something in the mail from Ertel Funeral Home that brightens the day.

I have never dealt with the death of a loved one in the past, when I went to Ertel Funeral Home I was uplifted by their compassion and warmed by the way they talked to me and took care of Joe and mom. I felt like I was talking to a friend instead of a stranger during my encounter with them on both occasions.

Rob M.

I'd like to take this opportunity to thank all of you for being so kind and helpful at the time of my husband's passing. I feel that you always go above and beyond in your service to those of us who have lost our loved ones. The service went so smoothly, in spite of the weather not being very cooperative that day!

I'm sure you went well beyond the ordinary to satisfy us and we want you to know everything was handled in the most professional and compassionate manner.
