  • We would like to extend our thanks!!! Perhaps you paid us a visit, sent flowers, food, a card, stopped us on the street to say "sorry for your loss", or offered a hand in some way. We are grateful! For the staff on 5 West at CVPH, we can't thank you enough. The compassion and consideration you provided Dad, Mom and family members during this difficult time was beyond words. thanks for continuing that same service to "Mom", still. Jay Heald from Heald's Funeral Home provided the compassionate and professional service our family needed during this time. Thanks for "letting the bell toll" and all the personal touches. Rev. Donal Kramberg, pastor at St. Joseph's Church added insightful comments about Leander that could only have come from "spending time" with friends and family prior to this service. Rev. Kramberg's light-hearted words kept our spirits uplifted as we dealt with this loss.

    Hi Jay, I wanted to write you a short note to thank you for your very professional and compassionate handling of my father's service. I was very happy and I know my father would have been very happy with all you did to make the service go off without any glitches. I was particularly impressed with the device (for lack of a better word) used to transport the ashes out of the church. My family and I were so happy with all you did to make a very stressful situation a wonderful tribute to my father. Thank you again for all you did.
