We have received many compliments from our friends as to the quality of the entire event. Even more important to me is how well you helped us through this most difficult time."
"As things start to return to some semblance of normal, I cannot help but reflect on all I've been through in this last month. I would feel extremely remiss if I didn't take the time to thank you personally, but also your staff, for the wonderful service you provided for my family and myself. I want you to know that from the very first I knew that everything was going to be okay… not just in a so-so manner, but in an exemplary manner. My confidence in [Ryan Funeral Home] was well founded. Thank you for doing the wonderful job you do. I truly appreciate it."
"Thank you so very much for the kind and compassionate care you gave to our family upon the death of our mother. From the moment [you] met us at Rennes Health Care… through the day of the funeral, all of you demonstrated the utmost professionalism, while at the same time showed genuine care and concern for our family and for mom.
May God bless you and give you the strength to continue providing the excellent and compassionate service that we were so fortunate to have received.
"Thank you just doesn't seem enough for all you have done for me and my family during this most difficult time. I can't believe how hard my mother's death has hit me. I can't tell you how beautiful you made my mom's service."
"Your comfort, presence, and all the love you gave to us; it helped a lot to be able to get over the first shock of Dad's passing. Thank you just doesn't seem to be enough, but it comes with a lot of love to you and your wonderful staff."
