I want to thank you for the great services that you provided to me and my family for my father. Your funeral home is first rate and I will be sharing my great experiences with many others. You made us feel very comfortable during the entire process. Your services, your friendly smiles and willingness to make things as comfortable as possible made a very difficult time one that I will never forget.

I was totally amazed at the extent of things that you were able to offer to my family. You were always there but off to the side to render whatever was needed for us. I know you made my wife, sister and me much more comfortable during a wonderful service for my father. Your attention to the smallest details showed us how professional and thorough you both are. Your skills in making my father’s appearance look so peaceful and natural was appreciated by all that attended the services.

It is always very nice to receive the "Embrace Life" newsletter. It seems the timing is just right. When I'm feeling really down, one of your newsletters come.

It is because of you that I went to your Serenity Seekers meeting. It took six weeks for me to understand more about life and death. If I hadn't attended these meetings after my son passed, I would have given up both spiritually and physically when God called for his Dad to join him. I am forever grateful.

I will be forever grateful.

~ the B. Family

Thank you for the terrific job you did with Mom's visitation & funeral. I thought she looked beautiful. You are both very good at your job. We loved the video and you were a comfort during a very difficult time.

~ the J. Family

How do you always know when I am having trouble? When I got your newsletter "I know It's Here Somewhere" the very first sentence was exactly how I felt. Also, today the Stein Hospice Bereavement Newsletter came and you are sponsoring the "Hope for the Holidays" again that has been my thoughts about how do I get through these next couple of months. I keep looking at the calendar and know that a year ago, this was happening with my mom. I miss her terribly and it is hard for my family to understand. I get the "she is in a better place" which I know is true, but does not make me feel better.

You give hope and guidance without even knowing you are doing it. Thank you and love to you both.

~ The V. Family

Thank you so much for your services for my mother. You both have been such a blessing to know things were handled as mom would have wanted. She looked so lovely, didn't she? She was truly everyone's sweetheart and example of a true Christian. Thank you once again!

I can't even express how thankful we are for all your help and support at this difficult time. Everything you did just couldn't have been more perfect, and we're all impressed with your compassion and professionalism. You and your wife are running a top-notch funeral home, and you are a real asset to the Norwalk area.

Thanks again for everything! You were a real blessing to all of us!

~ the H. family

Thank you so very much for sending me your newsletter for an extra year! I cannot adequately express just how meaningful and comforting it was for me to continue to receive your mailings. Each newsletter had just the right message to help me through that particular day, or week--the timing was impeccable.

Thank you, too, for the important work you do. Although I would not have chosen to meet you and John through the tragedy of death, I have appreciated the support you have so generously extended to me.

My husband and I would like to thank you for the wonderful treatment and professional
job that was done for our friend and "family member". This was the first time that we have been in your establishment and we're very impressed with the compassion that was shown to everyone. You made him look 10 years younger and the months of pain was gone off of his face. I hope that the family will take advantage of the bereavement service that you offer, too.

~ The W. family

I cannot express to you at all how much we believe the blessings God gave us when your "home" was chosen. From the minute we walked in, we were comfortable.

Thank you and God bless you ALL.

~ The F. family

Thank you for making everything come together. You made the funeral for my mother something that I will remember as a beautiful day.

How can I thank you enough? What amazing people you are! It was a beautiful, simple funeral, the way she wanted it. She didn't have much to her name but had much love for her family. Norwalk is truly blessed to have a business that cares for its clients the way you do. I have always told people of your kindness and will continue. Thank you again for your part in helping my nephews the way you did. It will never be forgotten. May God continue to bless you both.

Perhaps having groups for specific losses, parents/children/spouses etc. would be helpful. Was very helpful regardless.

~ Winter 2012 Serenity Seekers Bereavement Support Group

~ Winter 2012 Serenity Seekers Bereavement Support Group

This group really helps to let loved ones express their feelings and emotions. It has really helped my sister and me, also. I attended to support her, but I enjoyed the group immensely. This group helps to realize there is life after death and you have to make the best out of every situation. Thank you Evans Funeral Home for this experience.

~ Winter 2012 Serenity Seekers Bereavement Support Group

I do want to thank both of you for your care and professionalism as we laid mother to rest. I was comforted by your thoughtfulness. I just received the card for the "seedling" that you had planted as a memorial to mom and I wanted to thank you for your thoughtfulness! That would have pleased mother. Thank you for your kindness!

We just wanted to take a minute to thank you for the beautiful service that you orchestrated for our mom last weekend. Your professionalism and caring attitudes helped our entire family cope with our loss and celebrate my mom's life. Thank you.

~ The R. family

My grandfather just passed away a few months ago. You handled the cremation and the autopsy. You also helped out a lot with the paperwork that my grandmother needed in order to get money for her to receive benefits. I just wanted to let you know that the benefits that she applied for, with your help, was approved and she will now receive money from the VA because of her husbands passing.

I can not begin to explain how thankful I am that you helped us out with everything. I was only home for a short time and you both helped out so much that I could never thank you enough. I spoke with Mrs. Evans, specifically about this issue and she did everything she could to help. I could go on and on forever, but the fact is that I really, truly appreciate everything that you did for my grandmother. Thank you so much for everything, and thank you so much for everything that you do.

From the bottom of my heart, thank you for everything that you have done, and everything that you will do.

Sincerely,
D.C.

Yesterday, by internet, I attended a beloved family member's funeral at St. Paul Catholic Church.

Thank you for this remarkable service. What a God send to locals who can't attend Mass, etc. And, what a special blessing for those of us far in miles for funerals-weddings-and just plain keeping in touch.

Thank you and blessings.

~ L.P.

I just wanted to convey my heartfelt thanks for your caring and compassion during the loss of our mom...this past 1 1/2 years have been very hard on my family, especially my sister...the last three weeks have been the worst...
you all did a wonderful job for mom and we so appreciate it...she looked beautiful and everything was wonderful...the service was beautiful, too...I’m sorry we didn’t have pallbearers chosen but it all worked out...thank you also for marking my sister's grave...that’s something we need to get taken care of too...I had no idea her grave was unmarked...this really hurt us...her death was a tragedy and rarely talked about...
thank you again for all your help!

ps..thank you so much for the delicious chocolate chip cookies-that was very nice of you to do! I wasn't going to eat one (because heaven knows I don’t need it) but I couldn't resist!! and I was wondering who the artist is or where you got the painting to the right of where the people sat during the funeral...it was like a walkway in a garden...I loved it, it was so peaceful to me...thanks

~ the S. Family

I can’t thank you and John enough for all of your expert services and personal care throughout my Mom’s funeral process. Everything ran smoothly and was just as Mom would have wanted it. Our entire family was pleased with your kindness and attention to every detail. Thanks so much.
