Dear Mike,


I wanted to thank you for all your help. It was a good feeling to see the bond you & Dean formed in college was still there. I appreciated your attention to detail and especially the list of contacts that I needed to make following the funeral services. Thank you. Diane W.

I can’t thank you enough for all the kindness during this horrible experience.  You made things easier knowing all my wishes were met for my daughter Kerry.  The kindness and concern from all your workers the night of the wake was greatly appreciated. Thank you.


God Bless,

Nancy B.


Kerry went above and beyond in every way.  Mike was kind and patient while explaining everything.  The entire staff was considerate and helpful.  I can’t say enough good things about this establishment!



Karen H.


Mike and his staff were very helpful.  They made it so much easier.  They did a fantastic job.



Kathleen L.


I was planning most of this from another state and Mike could not have been more helpful.  He was always very quick to respond.  His staff was sympathetic, caring and helpful.  They all made a very difficult time, a lot easier.


Thank you,

Dennis E.


The Kerry staff was very helpful. They made me feel comfortable in a very difficult time.


Thank you,

Lee Ann H.


Mike and his staff treated myself and family very well.  We were very satisfied with the Kerry Funeral Home services.


~ Family of Eileen L.


From the moment our family met with Mike we felt we were in good hands.  He was warm but business like and took us through a difficult process with ease.  All of us felt our questions were answered and his availability was awesome.  We all give Mike and Kerry Funeral Home a grade of “excellent” and we are so thankful we chose your services.  In fact, all the staff have been great.


~ Mary Ellen K.


Mike and his staff were wonderful in guiding my family through the process of making arrangements for my father.  They went out of their way setting up displays and making the visitation so personal for my family.  Their compassion, patience and professionalism went above and beyond.  Thank you so much!


~ Patricia S.


Mike and his team were amazing. I couldn’t have been more pleased.  I wouldn’t change a thing.  Thank you!


~ Rashel F.


Trying to process a devastating loss and make arrangements is extremely difficult and you are not thinking clearly. Mike knew what to say and what to suggest. Efforts on my end were very minimal, thank goodness Mike knew exactly how this should go. Everything was better than expected. Mike did an amazing job and I am extremely pleased with the flow of it all. Kudos.


~ Family of Robert O.


Mike was just fantastic. He helped us through every aspect of the funeral arrangements and his staff is so kind and caring too.  My deceased mother's appearance was so wonderful. She looked decades younger and looked so beautiful. Mike is a real artist and has a real calling.


~ Patricia K.


We just want to say thank you for all you have done with taking care of our father.  From sitting us down on Sunday planning the funeral to the burial itself.  We can’t say enough how good your services were.


Thank you,

The Slisz Family



Under the circumstances of losing a loved one we could not have had a better experience.

~ Charles G.



As hard as it was to lose my husband, Kerry Funeral Home was the best decision I could have made.  I can’t believe how stress-free the funeral director and staff made the wake and visitation.  The wake services went beautifully!  The place was so clean and cheery, not dark like all the others.  All I can say is Mr. Orrico and the staff are true professionals!  I would recommend Kerry Funeral Home without reservations.



Laura Nowak


Dear Kerry Team,


Working together for Joe's funeral was a task much simpler because of you all. We will recommend you to friends in the area.

 Dear Mike and Kerry Funeral Home Staff,


Our family wants to thank you so much for the expertise you provided for our father's services. You and the staff were so accommodating. Like many others, we were not prepared for the depature of our father. You made it so easy for the family to arrange his services. We would recommend Mike and Kerry Funeral Home to all. We appreciate all you did to ease us through this process. Thank you to all.



Thank you to Kerry Funeral Home for the beautiful memorial service for my father, Armin Muth. The Kerry Team is very compassionate and gave Mom Judith as much time with as she needed to get through this process. My sister Pamela was able to set out so many precious memories in the viewing parlor to enhance an already beautiful room. Thank you again Kerry for all you do during a very difficult time!!!

Thank you,


Dear Mike & Staff,


Thank you for a seamless & stress free day. Amazing and caring group of professionals.


Sincerely, Andy's Family.

I highly recommend Kerry Funeral Home. Families aren't prepared during a heartbreaking death to deal or even know all the details. Mike and his staff made sure everything for my father's memorial was covered. We were very grateful for his professionalism, thoroughness and flexibility.


Thank you,


Just wanted to thank you again for the way your "home" handled the arrangements for my Mother-in-law.
The family is extremely appreciative of the way everyone in your organization conducted themselves.

Mike, we just got home late last night. Bad roads the last hundred miles. I’ll try and contact you at a later time, but for right now, just let me say thanks for all that you did for the family. You are doing it right and will be appreciated and rewarded by your community, you are a good man and it was an honor to meet you. You are on my list as a Friend.  Warmest regards to you and your family this Christmas Season,  Bill

Dear Mike,


When you lose someone you love a kind word keeps but when you're grieving and you have to go through the funeral process it's so important to have someone who cares like you.


Thanks so much, Karen.


Thanks again Mike for arranging for me to be in attendance on Skype today, (your yesterday). It was special for me to be apart of my larger family in grieving the passing of my uncle.
Kind regards, Matt



Just wanted to drop you a note to say thank you.  I was very pleased with your services and appreciated all of your help.


My mom's ten year battle with dementia was very hard on her and I was amazed how she looked for the service.


Thank you for that and take care, Ron.

Mike, Pete, Kathie & Joyce -


You are all wonderful people. Thank you for making such a difficult situation a little easier for my family & me.





Kerry Funeral Home,


My grandma wasn't a little loved, she held my whole heart and she will always hold my whole heart. You did a wonderful job honoring her life. Every detail from the beautiful flowers, mints, tissues on every table to all the arrangements and logistics that were made for the two days. Everything was perfectly and beautifully executed.


Thank you, Jill Warszalek



A bundle of thanks to you and your staff for the thoughtfulness you put into the services for the family of Wade Watson.

Thank you so much for all the comfort and support you and your staff provided me and my family for my Dad's funeral and preparations. We know we had some special requests for the dates but you handled them with kindness. We truly appreciated all that you did.


Many thanks and God Bless; Rita, Ray & Robert.

Dear Mike & the Kerry Staff,


We wish to thank you for walking us through what was the most difficult task we've ever faced. Words cannot express how your experience, kindness, sensitivity & professionalism carried us through. 


Now, upon reflection, we would not have changed anything, largely because of YOU and your important role.


We wish you and your families God's goodnes and continued blessings.


Sincerely, Kim & Christine Jakes.

Dear Michael,


First, let me thank you once again for the tremendously loving care you took of Rudy for us. Your beautiful compassion coupled with your amazing skill, is a true gift to all who place their loved ones in your hands.

Love, Gina & Family.

Thank you so very much, Barbara & Family.

Dear Mr. & Mrs. Orrico,

Thank you for the wonderful service that you provided for my brother Tom.  Your words were never more true as we are so blessed to have your niece Jessica in our family, and we love her very much.  Your family did care for ours, because that is what family does.


Thank you,

Sincerely, The Dubrick - Dodge Family.

To: Mike & all at Kerry Funeral Home,


Thank you for everything you did for my brother and our family. At this time, it's very difficult to focus & adjust. You were all so helpful and understanding.

I cannot thank you enough for finding the DvD for Ron's memorial. It was absolutely perfect. The kids were surprised! It was such a heartfelt moment and you made it happen. Your're the best. I will always be grateful to you.


Best Regards, Mary.

Mike - Just wanted to thank you for today and for your help and support throughout this process.  I think my Dad would have loved it.  Awesome.  

Dear Mike,


It's difficult to know where to begin to express my gratitude to you for the professionalism and courtesy you have shown to my family and me.


I could not have asked for a more beautiful and elegant celebration of Doug's life.


You and the staff at Kerry's should be so proud of the services you provide to make a difficult situation a little easier to bear.


Thank you so much, Maureen.

Dear Mike & Staff,


When we first met with you to discuss my mom, I knew you were going to be my choice in taking care of her.


I know I said it a million times, but I can't thank you enouch for all that you did. I understand it is what you do, but it was truly a beautiful experience at a very sad and difficult time.


Sincerely; Jim, Cheryl, Lynda & Jimmy

Dear Mike,


Words cannot describe how thankful and appreciative we are of your generosity, artistry & caring attention towards us.


My Dad, Cesar Gamez looked so peaceful after enduring so much turmoil in his last days of life.


You made that happen for him by making him look so good.


May God continue to bless you with the talented "GIFT OF ART".


Our sincere gratitude... Love, the VIllasenor & Gamez Family.

To Mike & his staff at Kerry Funeral Home,


My family and I want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for how you handled my mother's funeral arrangments from the very beginning to the very end with such kindness, compassion & true sincerity through the entire process.


Thank you for listening to me about who my mother was on this earth. You took every description of her into consideration when guiding us on her arrangements. Elegance was my Mom & Elegance was how you made her wake & funeral.


On behalf of my father, Bruno and my family we say God Bless you for the wonderful work you did for all of us at such a painful time in our lives.


Respectfully, The Dru Ann Polichemi Family.

Dear Mike,


I would like to thank you & your staff for the lovely funeral for my aunt, Isabel. From the minute I brought the photos on Tuesday morning until we said good bye at the cemetery, you did everything to make us comfortable.


God Bless you, Marte

Dear Mike,


Our deepest gratitude to you and your staff for making a most difficult time less stressful.


The services were done with dignity and grace.


We couldn't have asked for more.


Thank you again; Terri, Cheryl & Robin.

To Mike & the Staff,


We can't thank you enough for Arlene & Bill's time there. I know Bill was so happy with the way you handled Arlene's funeral arrangements.  If he could speak he would have said the same about his!


God bless all of you & thank you again.


- Bob & Mickee.

Hi Mike,


We would like to thank you for all the help you have extended. You did a great service. With all the funeral homes that I called, asked for details since it was our first time, it was only you that made me feel comfortable and assured that we you would take care of everything once my aunt  passed on.


When I went back to Austin, TX I told my mom and my sister, "call and meet Mike because he is there to help us ease the burden." ...which you really did.


That is why, I really would like to thank you for easing & guiding us during our darkest moments.


Thank you!!!

- Johanna & Joyce.


After making so many different calls I finally found someone who listened.

I spoke to Mike and made an appointment, We went through all my options, I've never buried a parent and my Dad was my Best Friend.
Was the hardest thing in my Life I've ever done and I never want to do it again.
Mike was so Great, Understanding, took his time, I never felt Rushed or Uncomfortable.
My Dad looked So Hansome♡
Thank you Mike for everything.
Joyce and Linda showed my Fiance and my sister a keepsake book and they surprised me a few days ago with my Dad's thumb print of a heart and has his birth month color charm it's Amazing.
Everything went great and when you can't afford a 600 newspaper obituary, Mike explained they do them on his website..
Thank you so much for everything that you done for me and my family.
I'm forever grateful♡♡♡

- Lori.



I just wanted to thank you for the way you handled my mother's funeral.  Your attention to detail was superb and everything went off so well, I wouldn't have changed a thing.  The large video screen you used to present the old photo's we gave you was a nice touch and the sequence was professionally done and enjoyed by all who attended.  I've had numerous guests come up to me since the funeral commenting on how nice the service was and you and your staff should be well pleased.  I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Kerry Funeral Home to everyone.





Words cannot express my thanks for your generosity. At the worst time, you made me feel comforted that you would take care of my mother and made everything O.K.


I will be forever grateful, Kim.

Dear Mike,


Thank you for being so kind & patient.  You put together such a beautiful wake and service for our family.

Thank you all so much, Sherry.

Dear Mike,


Thank you for making Mom's funeral so memorable. Mom looked beautiful, you are an Artisan as much as a Rembrandt. Your services will be highly recommended.

We wish you much success and many blessings to your family and staff.


With sincerest appreciation, Fran & Joe.


- Thank you so much for copying those DvDs for me! Your secretary told me you did it from home! Your caring concern, support & listening are greatly appreciated. 


Thank you! Terri.


From the moment we walked in, we knew this was the place we wanted to have my father waked. It's gorgeous, and comforting. Mike (Funeral Director) went above and beyond to satisfy our requests. He was very patient, only cared about our needs. He helped with everything. The flowers were amazing, the layout of our family's pictures and video tasteful done, the wake cards were so nice. Most of all, how he took care of my father. My father looked at peace. He looked like he did when he was alive. None of that five pounds of makeup that you often see at other wakes. The whole wake, and the funeral was pure perfection and we got so many compliments on how beautifully done it was and how pleased my father would be that he went out in such a beautiful way. For many years to come, this will be our family and friends home of choice. -Laura


-On behalf of my family I want to thank you and your staff for all you did to take care of our Mom.

-From the very first call you were professional and respectful of our family and we appreciate all that you did to provide us with very god memories of the wake and funeral services.  You and your staff were exceptional in your work, you truly made the process very easy and without any stress.

-I know this can be a very difficult business at times but I want you to know that you are doing everything a family could ask for at the most difficult times of their lives.  Please let me know if I can ever be of assistance, I will definitely be passing along to anyone the great services you provide.



- My family and I met you during the loss of my older brother this past October. You may remember us as the Deaf family who brought a new experience for you seeing your funeral home filled with Deaf people. I wanted to let you know once more how absolutely fantastic you were with my family and how great of an experience I had given the circumstances. 
- It is rare to meet someone with little to no experience with Deaf culture but who also adjusts to and accommodates the needs of Deaf people. Your patience alone really helped, I've had a lifetime of experience with people behaving in insulting ways towards my family, and the way you handled yourself around us really amazed me. So, I wanted to thank you.
- Since I had such and amazing experience, you were the first person I thought of when a young lady I work with mentioned she was interested in embalming. You could be a wonderful resource for her since you own and run your own funeral home. If it isn't too much of an inconvenience, I know she would really appreciate asking you a few questions about what type of education and licensing your job requires as well as what other tasks a funeral director must do.
- I hope all is well with you and your family, Rosie.

Dear Mike,  I'd like to say thank you for everything you've done to help our family during the most difficult time of our lives.  You and your staff showed us such kindness and professionalism.  Kerry Funeral Home created such a beautiful place for all of Ron's family and friends to not say "goodbye" but to say "see you again".

- Thanks for everything; Janice, Valerie, Sam, Mike & Debbie

Mike, I cannot express how much I appreciate everything you did for me & my family.  I know this is your business but you make it very personal & we really were thankful that we found you.  From your kind smile & caring demeanor your professionalism was top notch...  

- Love, Rita & Scott.

Mike & the Kerry Staff,

Thank you for all of your help and assistance with our father.  Your kindness, hospitality and preparations were wonderful.  I will definitely pass on the word about how professional and outstanding your services are to everyone we know.


- Bob & Alaine.

Mike, Thanks for taking care of my wife.  Your place is beautiful.  I'm sure she was smiling down at how marvelous everything was.  I cannot say enough about your crew; Lou & the young lady in the office who works there were great.  Thanks again & God Bless you all.

- Jim

I never did take the time to thank you and your staff for helping my family through what was the worst time of our lives.
Mike, thank you for being so kind to my mother, Bev. I know...I get it... all I can say is thank you.
I know we had a pretty full house at one point, it was hard to tell, I never left my Dad's casket aside from using the bathroom and even then, I felt like I was in a daze.
Your staff helped my family turn an awful experience into something not-so-awful. That meant a lot to us.
I know that's doesn't sound like a "glowing praise" but it is.
Best regards,
- Kari

It is always a difficult time full of emotion and often confusion when a family must reach out to a funeral home to prepare services for a final goodbye to their loved one.  Mike at Kerry Funeral Home was supportive and responsive. The service and quality of everything they did was first class.  The decision making process was quick and easy.

The wake and funeral services were classy and organized. The facility was recently remodeled and is absolutely beautiful and very comfortable for family and close friends. Thank You Mike and team for all the wonderful service.

- Chris and Jim

I personally want to say that everyone at Kerry Funeral Home could not have been more helpful, supportive & caring.  When my daughter passed in February, you went beyond the norm and it really made the difference between standard service & exceptional care. I highly recommend Kerry Funeral Home.

Thank you.

- Jerry


Thanks for your services. Excellent Job!

- Bob
