Dear Joel and The Wonderful Staff of Vandemore Funeral Home,

From the moment you welcomed us into your embrace, we had nothing to worry about. We truly felt your own sadness along with our heartbreak over Dad’s sudden death.  I loved how you called him Richie, he would have smiled :)  You made this difficult time so much easier with your comforting council.  Your warm gracious smile and thoughtfulness at every aspect of planning was truly amazing, everything we asked for you provided and then some. Dad’s funeral arrangements were done with such ease, you took care of it all….  The beautiful Farm themed tri-fold was amazing, we had so many compliments.  Thanks again and God's Blessing to you.

Dear Joel, We knew this day would come for Mom and even though we made plans, we were not truly "ready”. You made everything so easy for us and the guidance you gave was so genuine. It's a rare person that can do the job you do with such compassion and care. You talked about how lucky the area was to have such talented florists, but I think as a community we're more lucky to have you! Mom looked wonderful and I know she would have been pleased with every detail of the funeral. Thanks again for being there for us like a friend and neighbor would be.

Sincerely, Sherry H. and Vicki D.

Dear Friends, "No time on earth is long enough to share with those we love or to prepare our hearts for good-bye". Thank you so much for everything you did to ease the sadness of saying "good-bye" to my mother. Gratefully,
