    Dear Mike, Please know how grateful we are for your amazing hospitality and kindness. You and the wonderful lady that stayed with us at the wake showed our family such kindness and made this very sad time a more pleasant experience than we anticipated. You have such a gentle presence and sincerity that will never be forgotten. You showed the upmost respect for my father, family, friends and to our beloved Honey. Thank you for allowing us to say good bye in a beautiful and unique way that we know she would have loved. Thank you for remembering our names each time you saw us and for the handshakes and concern for our father. We won't soon forget your kindness.

    Mike, We would like to say thank you for all you did for us. Without your kindness, our daughter's funeral would have been a lot harder to get through. This world needs more people like you.

    When we buried my dad in July 2010 my husband knew Bruce and I felt like we were known and got great service. I was a little concerned with new personnel, how it would go, but I couldn't have asked for better treatment for myself, my family or my mom. Thank you for everything.

    We are the second generation to use your facilities. It seems my mom's whole family called you folks when needed. We have had our funeral plans for years here. Mike Hakeman helped my son and me make all the arrangements. Mike is a tower of patience, helpfulness, kindness and caring. He made one of the saddest times in my life more bearable with his gentle suggestions. Thank you Mike.

    I'd like to thank you again for all of your kindness and thoughtfulness during the sad time of the passing of my husband. Mike and every other employee that I had contact with were wonderful. Everything was completely taken care of to my complete satisfaction and they made sure that it was exactly as I wanted it. The final perfect touch was when I received a note in the mail from Living Memorial Program telling me that a seedling was being planted in a National Forest in honor of my husband sponsored by the Schreffler Funeral Home. The whole family was touched that their father would be honored like that. The Family of James P.

    Thank you so much for the seedling you had planted for a memorial for our loved one. He would be so pleased as our son worked and retired from the U. S. Forest Service in the state of Oregon. That was very thoughtful of you and appreciated.

    I was very pleased that we were working with you at a very emotional time. I also wanted to mention one thing. For some reason; the quilt you draped over my dad made me really happy. It was a little something that made viewing him a little better. Thank you.

    Mike was excellent. He did not try to lead me to a product I could not afford. He understood the cost factor and honored my husbands wishes for a simple funeral. Linda helped smooth the after decision path, friendly and kind.

    Thank you for your kindness and professional service to our family by attending the graveside ceremony for my dad, arranging the military honors and providing the case for the US flag and for providing the registry for the memorial service the following day. All of these wonderful things are greatly, greatly appreciated.

    "Thank you" seems inadequate to express my appreciation for all you folks did to help facilitate my grandson's burial. Your sincere, heartfelt interest and commitment to help was beyond the call of duty. Your effort was a great comfort during a difficult time.
