    Dear Bryan Hugeback, Thank you so much for the wonderful arrangements you made for Father Heimerman's funeral last month. I was so impressed with the natural, humble, peaceful appearance you captured of him. All the details of contacting the Bishop, priests, news media, St. Michael's Church and guild and arrangements were so well done and with such limited time. Your wife's talent with the programs, placemats, thank you cards etc. exceeded any I have ever seen. You made this difficult time a true celebration of Fr. Francis' new life! Many thanks to all of you and the members of St. Michael's Church. Ruth and Byron Spear

  • Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!! Don't know if my family wrote you a "thank you", but I needed to write one anyway! Everything was just SUPER - had tons of compliments how good mom looked. Everything was perfect. Sorry I didn't make it to the prayer service Saturday evening. Have a Blessed Christmas. Barb Reicks

    Dear Bryan and Gayla, How do we say thank you? What you did, how you did it and your kindness deserve so much more than thank you. However, thank you it is. You made the most tragic time in our lives bearable. You guided us so gently through the decisions and choices. As I look back at those days now I am even more amazed at your ability. You just - somehow - knew what we needed and made it happen. We are eternally grateful.

    Just wanted to thank the entire staff at Hugeback & Chenoweth for the wonderful service we received at the time of my mother's death. I must say that she looked beautiful and those that came through the line at the visitation commented similarly. Thanks for your professionalism and compassion at this sad time in our lives.

    I am at a loss for words. You helped to make my mother's funeral services the best I think they could have ever been. Brian, when you and I visited on the phone and you made the comment that you thought we would be very happy with your services, you were making an understatement. All the usual things and especially the little things that you did for our family will never be forgotten. Our family felt, and I have had many friends comment, on how beautiful everything was and I would like to thank you for your part in this. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all your assistance through this time. It all meant so much to us.

    Dear Bryan, Thank you very much for all you did to help us cope with the loss of our dear Ethel Mae. You have always been a calm, wise influence during times of grief. You helped us with Aunt Irene, Lee, Aunt Gertrude, and now Ethel Mae. It is hard to believe they have all passed on. We appreciate all you have done for us over the years.

    Dear Bryan, Drew & the entire Hugeback-Johnson Team, We would like to thank you for helping our family through the difficult time following Uncle Art's death with great understanding and compassion. We don't know what we would have done without your support and guidance. It is a great comfort to know you and your staff will be there for us in the future during such sad and rough times. The video tribute was very moving and was an added treasure to the closing of Art's journey. It was very fitting for our farm boy! With sincerest thanks, Chad & Becky Lancaster
