To: Ken & Staff
We would like to express our appreciation for a beautiful service for our mother, Freda Moore. Thank you!
I know you have to handle so many brief situations, but I want to thank you for your guidance during my recent loss of my brother, Ralph Waddle. Thank you and may God Bless.
P.S. The use of your building which gives such “light and space” was a blessing. Thank you for being reasonably priced too.
Thank you so much Mr. Allen. Your service for our family was an A+. Thank you again for all you have done.
Dear Mr. Allen, We want to thank you and to let you know how much we appreciate all that you did during the loss of our father; James Hughes and to also thank you for the very special laminated obituaries you made for us. They will be a nice remembrance of our father and grandfather.
Mr. Allen, You made a most difficult time a very comforting time for me and our family. Some of our requests were "strange"....however, you never made us feel that they were. You were most helpful in every way possible. You did a wonderful job in preparing mother, especially having never seen her before. She was very natural looking and didn't look at all "made up" and we know that you had a difficult time because of all the bruises on her hands. She looked so pretty and it helped so much in leaving us with nice memories. We can never thank you enough for all you did. You were a great comfort and most helpful. This, I realize, is your "job" but we all feel you went beyond that. Being from out of town, you made a sad and difficult time a most comfortable one and one we can have good memories of even though the occasion was a sad one. God Bless You!
Dear Mr. Allen, The Kilpatrick family would like to take this opportunity to thank you and your staff for the courteous and professional manner displayed in handling the funeral arrangements for my loving wife; Ethel. Your service and concern for our family certainly displayed your slogan "Because We Care". You have established a tradition of trust with the entire Kilpatrick family. It was proven beyond a shadow of a doubt that Hughes-Allen Funeral Home does care. Our family and friends commented many times on how convenient and beautiful your facilities are and how accommodating and friendly everyone seemed to be. In other words, every member of my family was and is completely satisfied. Our pastor, Douglas Dean of the Morral United Methodist Church commented frequently about the comfort and effortless utility of your facility. He also was pleased with the thoroughness of your staff and the compassion you expressed in the way you cared for our family. You have helped make a turning point in our lives far less painful because of your kindness and care. Thank you.
Dear Mr. Allen, Thank you so much for all the help and guidance you gave our family during this very difficult time. You made it possible for us to make necessary decisions swiftly. Dad was a special person and with your help we were able to honor his spirit with love and dignity.
I would like to thank you for all your help. Death is never easy to accept but with your help, you made it less stressful and easier to deal with. Thank you again.
Dear Kennith, A special thank you for your helpfulness and consolation. The entire family appreciates your caring and thoughtfulness.
Dear Mr. Allen, My family and I are pleased at the way you conducted Bill's services, etc. Your kindness and thoughtfulness were very much appreciated. Sincere thanks.
Mr. Allen, I wanted to let you know how much I appreciated your help with my mother's arrangements. Your willingness to meet with me the same day and help us arrange her service around a holiday weekend was more than I could ask for. Again, thank you so much for all your assistance and suggestions to make such an emotional situation easier to deal with.
Dear Kennith, Your compassionate handling of Brick's burial gave us great comfort and peace. That you agreed so gracefully with our perhaps, unorthodox ideas is an additional reason for our thanks. We are very grateful.
Dear Mr. Allen, We are very grateful to you for having handled every detail of Bill's arrangements in the best possible manner. I will always remember how much we appreciated your expert guidance and help through a very sad time.
Dear Ken, I was most pleased with everything. In case I neglected to tell you, Aunt Alice looked very nice, especially since she was so ill the last four days. I know that she would have been very satisfied with the viewing and the service. Thanks for all your help.
Dear Mr. Allen, Just a thank you that comes from my heart. You have been so kind and have guided me through the worst time of my life. Without you, I don't know what I would have done. I like to call you my friend. Thank you.
Mr. Allen, We just wanted to let you know how very much we appreciated the way you took care of my husband and their dad. It comforts me to know that you two talked together and that you got to know him. We were more than pleased about the way you handled things and helped us out.
Dear Ken, You made a difficult situation easier. Thank you for your special help.
I will kindly recommend your funeral home to my friends and neighbors. Your facility and service was superb and greatly appreciated. Sincere thanks.
Dear Mr. Allen, Please accept this expression of gratitude for everything you did to help us with the arrangements for my father; Steve Ford. It was not only the skill with which you performed the tasks involved but your care and compassion in assisting us with those difficult and uncomfortable decisions that had to be made. I especially want to thank you for returning my mother safely home Wednesday from Fort Wayne. That was very helpful to my husband and myself. Again, many thanks to you.
Ken, We wanted to drop you a special note of thanks for everything you did to assist with Rick's final arrangements. I would think it quite difficult to be the funeral director for a close friend. I am sure you feel the loss just as we do. Everything was handled to perfection. We like to think of Rick at the "big game" holding his Royal Flush with a pocket full of cash. Thanks again.
Dear Ken, So much has happened since my mother's funeral but over and over again I reflect on the many kindnesses you showed to us all during this very difficult time. It seemed to me that you went above and beyond the call of responsibility to make things easier for us. you are certainly gifted for this very tender ministry to hurting people. We have talked about your sensitive, caring attitude. At no time did you behave as though this were a business. In fact, you made us feel as though we were good friends. A special thanks for the copy of the Marion Star with my mother's obituary and the extra effort in getting the flowers to Mrs. Curtis. If there is anything I can do for you, please get in touch with me.
On behalf of the family, I wish to express our gratitude to you and your staff for the courteous and professional manner in which everything was handled. You were very helpful in making sure we knew all of our options and expressed your desire to do everything according to our wishes. At the loss of yet another family member, we were again reminded of how very important these matters are to a family during a time of loss. Again, thank you for a job well done.
Dear Ken, We both want you to know how much we appreciated your help and kind words in our time of loss. You had given us good advice, even though some of it wasn't in your field....that I appreciate the most because you didn't have to! The service you had given, I can't explain how much that meant to Charlie and I. Thank you again.
Dear Mr. Allen, Just a note to thank you for your tender and tactful care surrounding my father's funeral. All of us were exhausted by the time you arrived at the house to discuss arrangements and I noticed with admiration how you handled the situation. It can't be easy to deal with a roomful of people, each handling grief in his/her own way. I was disappointed over having to leave Ohio before Dad's ashes were interred but I know you handled it with dignity and grace. Thank you for your care.
Dear Mr. Allen, We just wanted to thank you again for all your help and kindness. You made this whole ordeal much easier to bear. We felt easier in our hearts and minds knowing that you were there for all of us.
Mr. Allen, My family thanks you for all you did for us when Bob died. I could not be more pleased - everything was handled beautifully. You took all the worries and problems from us at that time of need. Thank you again.
Dear Ken, I just wanted to thank you again for mother's funeral. I know to say one was pleased or happy with a funeral would sound really strange to some but you made it a truly pleasant, happy, "let's make mother comfortable" experience. Mother looked beautiful. The casket was lovely and you made it all so painless for me. Thank you.
We are always interested in hearing from the families that we serve. Please take a moment to let us know how well we served you in your time of need. We very much appreciate your feedback.
