Testimonials and Words of Appreciation
When we receive words of appreciation from families we've served, thanking us for our caring ways during their time of loss, it warms our hearts, so we want to share the same with you, as we believe these words speak to our professionalism, compassion, and to the true value of the services we provide.
"Losing your mom is very had no matter her age. So when a family is shown the respect and courtesy the staff of Waid's Funeral Home showed us, it made our loss easier to cope with. Their professional attitude is outstanding from the pre-planning to the graveside service any beyond." C.P.
"We were treated with much kindness and respect! Their service to our needs was fabulous. It felt as though by the day of my Mom's funeral that they had become a part of our family. Thank you again Anna, Jenny and all at Waid Funeral Home!" B. B.
"They are kind and gentle during difficult times. They genuinely care." D. S.
"...My sincere appreciation for your excellent service at the time of my sister's funeral. From the moment we came to make our arrangements, you made us feel comfortable and explained everything clearly and understandable, which certainly helped with our decision-making process. Even though there were a total of three funerals going on in a very short period of time, you gave us your undivided attention during the entire time. Also you and your staff were so helpful with the DVD Photos, music, flowers, and the memorial service. To make everything just right it made us feel very much at ease and found you made this sad loss a little easier to bear. Jaci was so helpful in dealing with the life insurance issues which were quite complicated and worked with us throughout the claims. The professionalism of the entire staff was outstanding. I have only had to deal with one other funeral home during the last few years and believe me, there is no comparison between the two."
Christine Kluckman Family

"Words cannot express the gratitude we feel for making my grandma's funeral so special. It was such a difficult time and you and your staff went above and beyond for our family.

"...Regarding both of my parents, Dad died in Sept, 2014 and Mom on Jan 2, 2015. In both situations, I found the staff very helpful and willing to accommodate us. That means a lot at a time of sadness. Everything went well with the services at Bell Tower. I was happy to work with the Waid Funeral Staff. "
Sincerely, Nancy Lohrbach
"I’d like to start out by saying that Anna and the rest of the staff at Waid Funeral Home are wonderful! I mention Anna in particular because she is the Funeral Director who helped us with my Father’s funeral arrangements. She was caring and supportive from the moment I contacted her. Although my Dad had much of his funeral pre-planned, she went through each and every detail step by step to insure we understood my Dad’s wishes along with giving us the time to make the decisions that still needed to be made. We never felt rushed. Anna truly went above and beyond, from contacting the florist, to finding a Bagpiper, to even being there weeks later when Anna met us at the Unity Garden at the Merrill Cemetery where we scattered some of my Dad’s ashes and said our final good-byes. My family and I are so thankful and appreciative for everything that Anna and the staff did to help us get through such a difficult time in our lives. We are forever grateful! "
Sincerely, Tammy Woller

"The death of a child shatters a parent so completely, leaving such anguish, that there is no possibility of making decisions on your own. However, unthinkable decisions need to be made, and quickly. You guided us through a maze of grief with an abundance of kindness and compassion. Every detail of Mark's service was attended to with respect and we thank you for helping us find a way to cope during a seemingly unendurable time in our lives."
