“I am writing to thank you Rebecca for all of your efforts in regard to my husband's services. I realize that it is your business to conduct the service, but I believe you went well beyond the typical expectation for such an event. I was impressed by the organization of your operations and the way you made every accommodation to make the family especially me comfortable at such a difficult time. I was more impressed by the personalized treatment that you display in the way you recognize the family members by their names and took extra time to make certain that the family was set at ease. You certainly were an angel of compassion at a time when a physically and mentally exhausted my family was in need of a helping hand and you went above and beyond for me ..You are definitely a credit to your profession and I would recommend your organization to anyone who should have a need for your service. More importantly, I believe that you are a genuinely good and caring person and I am glad that you were a part of this time in our lives. Thank you again for being there for us. Sincerely Dalia Perry”

“I had so many questions. Some that I didn’t even know I had. I had just lost my husband of 51 years and I felt lost myself. Our son and daughter went with me to Eickenhorst and they had questions, too. Jake was wonderful. His voice was quiet compassionate, and soothing. Jake was the consummate professional throughout the process. We went in confused, not knowing what to do nor how to do it, and left feeling at ease. We knew we still didn’t know everything that would need to be done or what questions might arise, but we had the comfort of knowing that Jake would be walking through this with us. Jake, and the Eickenhorst staff are a blessing from God to families who have lost a loved one. Thank you. We are beyond grateful.”

“When my Son Chris passed, Rebecca was so helpful to us. She made this process as easy for us as possible. She truly went above and beyond to make sure we were able to honor my Son in the best way possible. She went out of her way to help us through the hardest time of our lives. She is so caring and we are eternally grateful. ❤️”

“Eickenhorst Family and staff, "We must say "Thank you" again for being available in our time of need. When we discovered that the funeral home through which we had pre-planned our mom's funeral years ago had gone out of business, we almost panicked. We called you and Jason answered, assuring us that he was available to answer our call that very night if necessary. From that time on, we felt comfortable knowing that everything was being taken care of, and that we all were in good hands. Thank you for your ministry in the funeral "business". Thank you for our loved one's services and for handling the details - and for honoring the burial policy. May God bless you in this work."”

“Let me start out by saying Rebecca was a God sent for me.(As my brother was in ICU We knew he wasn’t going to survive) I had to call different funeral homes to make arrangements and find out what to do and the cost.That’s when I talked to Rebecca.Her voice on the other end of the phone brought me peace and she had so much compassion for what I was going through.This was in December 2020.She took care of everything for me.Because of Covid we had to have his service April 2021.And these almost 4 months I bet I called or texted her a 100 times.And each and every time I called or text she always responded the same way with her sweet and kind understanding.The day of my little brother services it was all perfect and that’s because of her!She should teach those big fancy funeral homes how treat the families of their loved one.She’s an Angel here on Earth and I appreciate All she did for us!😘Thank you Billy Blackwell’s Loving Family”

Thank you for your kindness and generosity. You will never truly know how grateful we are for you and all you have done to help us through this time in our lives. God is so good! You have been a blessing to us. Thank you. J.F.”
