Being involved in the death of a loved one, I was apprehensive about the whole process, especially for what happens after the death. Joe, you are one of the most comforting, warm people I have ever encountered. You are professional and kind, honest, and straight forward. You made such a difficult task feel easy. The staff exceeded my expectations and went above and beyond to make sure that the deceased wishes were carried out in a beautiful way.

From the bottom of my heart, on behalf of my family, thank you. One of the things I will remember about this difficult time in life was the way you cared for not just our loved one, but for us as well.

Making arrangements for an unexpected death of a loved one is a very difficult experience. Joe and Rachel were both very comforting and went above and beyond the call of duty. I am so very appreciative all Joe's expertise and his kind heart. Thank you to all the staff at Gaylord Community Funeral Home.

My family received absolutely superb, personal attention from Joe Messenger and staff during the recent loss and final arrangements for my father. Joe's concern for our understanding of details, our choices to be honored void of pressure to choose otherwise, as well as his thorough assistance in important details was incredible, all done with a truly caring and personal manner of interaction that meant so very much to every one of us! So thankful for the expertise, professionalism, and sincere kindness received by using the services of Gaylord Community Funeral Home & Cremation Service during such a difficult time in our lives.

Recently spent time with Joe Messenger Pre-planning a service and memorial. He was so kind, compassionate, and personal with my Husband and I. He had all the answers of our many questions, even before we asked. His kindness will never be forgotten by either of us. Thank you.

I can't stop telling everyone how wonderful Joe and his staff was. I wouldn't go anywhere else. At one of the hardest times in our lives, they bent over backwards to make us feel comfortable. They are so caring and truly compassionate and professional, which is nearly impossible to find anymore. Best experience I have ever had with a business!

Very professional and approachable, they had all the bases covered. I was blown away by all the small details and never a hesitation to check on anything we had questions about. The whole family was impressed and we felt extremely comfortable knowing they had taken care if everything.

The Kindness and professionalism extended to my family and I was above and beyond and very appreciated. Nothing was too small or too large for them to completely handle and help us through a very difficult time. Thank you again for everything and I pray that your business will always be successful and rewarding. Blessings to you Joe and the rest of your team.
