What others are saying.....

We would like to take this opportunity to say thank you to all the families who have entrusted Hoffman Funeral Home & Cremation Services to provide professional and caring services during such difficult and emotional times.

Below, you will find hundreds of the kind and humbling comments from individuals who have graciously described their recent experiences with us.  We hope this will provide some insight to those who are considering our services.

 

Thank you for everything you did when my sweet father passed away.  You handled every detail with not only professionalism, but with such grace and kindness.  My father would’ve been so proud and honored by the military service you organized at the grave site.  Thank you for that!  The last few months of dad’s life were not good for him as he began to suffer and lose so much weight.  I was against a viewing, but must admit, you made him look like my dad again.  I cannot tell you how much that meant to me, my mom and sister!  What a blessing you all were.  Thank you really isn’t adequate to express how incredibly grateful my family was for everything you did!  You definitely helped us find some light in one of the darkest times of our lives.  May God bless each of you and your families.
-Barb Moyer and the Jesse L. Shroyer family

 

Thank you for your service to countless numbers of people through the years to people walking through times of loss.  Thank you for your service and support to our family.  You provided for the care and burial of many of our family members over the years.

Thank you for sending this beautiful celebration candle for my loving father.  It has brought a very calming effect to me and the home.  I have placed it on the coffee table in the living room where he watched sports, Bonanza and news programs and near the basket of plants from the funeral.  Thanks again.

The very thoughtful Christmas memorial remembrance brought us both sadness and joy at the same time.  This will be our second Christmas without mom and we have struggled to continue on with our family traditions, but we also know that that's what our mom would want us to do.  So we thank you for having this very uplifting memorial service.  It has given us much comfort and peace!  Merry Christmas.

-The Alwine family

 

Now that the new year has arrived I wanted to write you and express to you that I believe the service you do with a remembrance service at Christmas time is one of the most thoughtful and meaningful services I have experienced.  Too often those who are mourning are overlooked at the holidays unless the death happens close to the holiday.  Those who are still grieving after months are left feeling there is something wrong with them while everyone around them are joyfully celebrating.  I hope and pray this is a service that you will continue for many years to come.  May God richly bless you throughout 2016 as you faithfully serve Him in your vocation.
-Rev. Nila Cogan

 

We want you to know that we were very pleased with your excellent handling of our dear mother's funeral.  You made everything go smoothly in spite of our very large family.  Thank you for getting us through our sad time by being there for us.  Best wishes and happy holidays to all of you.

I'm writing this note with a heavy heart but much appreciation and gratitude for all the assistance, kindness, compassion and most importantly your professionalism you extended to Georgiann, myself and our family during our dear mother's passing.  You and your staff treated us like family with much warmth, support and guidance during a time when it was most needed.  My mother always prided herself in her impeccable appearance and you did your very best in making her look as beautiful as we always remember her to look...peaceful and elegant.  You all are truly gifted in a profession that is unique and one that calls for your special individual qualities.  We feel so fortunate to have such a loved and compassionate funeral home in Boswell!  Our deepest heartfelt thanks. 
-Georgiann and Reggie (Orlandi)

 

I want to thank you for letting me come to the candle lighting service.  It was beautiful and the best service I've ever been to.  Everyone that spoke just seemed to say the right words for the sensitive situation.  I really needed to hear those words more than you know.  I'm so glad I was there.  I liked how you put Arnie's picture up on the big screen.  I loved the Christmas poem and I love the candle I got to take home.  You really went above and beyond.  Thank you so much!!!  From my heart.

Sincere thanks for the service you performed at Mom's funeral this past week.  From the moment we walked through the doors until the doves flew out of view...everything was perfect.  Your patience with the large family was muchly appreciated as I think I relayed to you and your dad (as he held the door for stragglers later than usual Monday evening). Above and beyond for sure.  That's where the benefit of family run plays into the funeral business.  The service you offered the family from start to finish was most professional and muchly appreciated.

-Dorothy "Jane" St.Clair

 

I continue to be most impressed with your services after Bob died February 9th, soon a year already.  There was no stone left unturned in preparation for the viewing and funeral.  All my many questions were answered with courtesy, kindness and professionalism.  The Christmas Remembrance Service was low key and handled with grace.  I refer to the booklet offered there many times and I loved the idea of the box in which to store keepsakes.  I decided to pass on treasured wooden boxes owned by Bob's parents and mine.  They'll be Christmas gifts with great meaning for our kids. Thanks to all the Hoffman's for your many kindnesses.

I was extremely pleased with the way the planning, viewing, and funeral services were handled.  We have always had the most outstanding service with a very caring and professional staff as all the members of my family have been laid to rest at your funeral homes. I wish to express my sincere appreciation for the most recent experience I have had with my mothers passing.  She looked like a beautiful angel, resting peacefully, almost like she never had the devastating Alzheimer's disease that ultimately led to her death.  That is exactly how I hoped everyone would remember her before she was sick.  I know that my mother would have been so happy to know that she looked so beautiful and healthy as she was laid to rest. Thank you for taking the time you all did to go above and beyond in making this difficult time for us so much more bearable.

First of all, on behalf of our entire family I would like to express our warmest thank you for the special care that was taken during mother's funeral and related events.  So many positive comments have been made to me about the attention that was given to every detail.  At such a sad and traumatic time having to cope with arrangements seemed overwhelming, however, the way in which we were supported and provided guidance made the task at hand much easier.  Now to have received correspondence that you have made a donation, in mother's name to the York Children's Foundation is yet another example of your caring approach in all that you do.
-Lois A. Bender-Castro (The Lois Sheftic Family)

 

Your services were all that we hoped to have and more.  Thank you so very much.  Our wife/mother will be remembered as her beautiful self - truly a lady - because of your efforts.  We were pleased with all that your Davidsville Funeral Home provided.  God Bless you all.
-The Ann Boback Familly

 

Your services were very well done, as always.  Thank you.
-The Robert L. Gracie Family

 

Thank you for making things as easy as possible in our time of sorrow.
-The Myers children

 

I'd like to thank you for everything you did for my family during the recent loss of Caleb.  You made this unexpected hardship much easier to deal with.  I know you did more than what was expected or  necessary.  You helped make our decisions easier, made us feel comfortable and let Nikki have her needs met.  I thank you from the bottom of my heart for your generosity and compassion.
-Dot Stevens Family

 

Thanks very much for the way you took care of Bill.  You all did a very good job. He looked so good.

I can't tell you how much I appreciate your card and caring words.  They really meant a lot to me.  Your sons couldn't have treated us any nicer.  They tried to make everything just perfect and they really did too!  We are very grateful for all of you.  Many thanks.

My experience in these matters is very limited--as is that of most folks; but, we were very satisfied with the manner in which mom's funeral was conducted and her appearance for the viewing.  I was very surprised because her deterioration was so obvious from day to day before her passing.  Thank you and your staff.
-Dwane Yoder

I want to thank you all for the wonderful and professional services you have provided for us.  This, of course, is why we always come "back home".
-Robert L. Lohr

 

I shall never forget the kindness you gave to all of us and the greatest degree of respect you gave to my mother.  All of you helped to get us through a very difficult time, when sorrow seemed to cloud all our senses of knowing what to do or what is proper.  You guided us gently and patiently.  I can personally never forget your help at arranging the funeral service at St. Andrew's.  It was a kindness befitting her, my mother's, last moments with all of us.  St. Andrew's people treated us as the Christians they truly are.  We are slowly getting back to our daily chores in life...with a big vacant spot.  She was so present in our every day life.  I will very much miss my mother but life goes on.  Thank you all again.

We truly wish to thank you for all that you did for dad's funeral.  The only other wish he had other than dying in his sleep was to call you and give him a nice funeral.  My family can't thank you enough.  You did a truly first class job and he would have been thrilled.  I'm so glad that we are friends and relatives.  Thanks again for everything.

We all want to thank you for the gracious and sympathetic way in which you handled the funeral of our husband and father.  We appreciate so much the way that you arranged the church so that the viewers were able to move through without interruption.  We estimate that about a thousand people came during the two day visitation.  Thanks for everything.

How can we begin to thank you for the wonderful work you do that brings so much comfort to others?  John's viewing and funeral were perfect.  Every step of the way we could feel the compassion and support that makes Hoffman Funeral Homes the best!!  It was amazing to see John look younger than his 87 years.  Thank you for taking care of those many details that required phone calls and paperwork.  We appreciated all of the time and effort you put forth to give John a proper send off.  Most of all, thank you for your smiles and prayerful support that were a source of strength at a difficult time.  We'll never forget it.  May God bless you always. 
-The John Kowalczyk family

 

Now that our family can move on toward brighter and happier days, we wanted to thank you and your family for everything in taking care of the arrangements for mom and Doris.  As difficult as it was to lose mom, it was devastating to then lose Doris so soon after and then under those terrible conditions.  I can't thank you enough for the guidance, comfort and reassurance you provided me as I worked toward bringing our sister home with her family.  The dignity and respect that you accord our loved ones brings such comfort to us at a time when our whole world is so empty.  Our family is at peace now.  Thank you again for everything.

Thank you all for making this most difficult time a little less stressful.  As I'm sure it is very hard for all families, we feel especially blown away, but I know it would have been much harder if we didn't have friends in your line of work.  We all felt that everything was arranged perfectly.  The Lord is giving us comfort and we know we will see Carter again as believers of Christ.  Thanks again.
