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.

I want to sincerely thank you for all the thoughtful ways you were working with us in making the memorial DVD. Bill and I really appreciate this gesture from you and the family was very touched.
In deepest gratitude, Raymonde & Bill.
First, let me thank you once again for the tremendously loving care you took of Rudy for us.

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.

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.
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
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.
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
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.
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.
- 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♡♡♡
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.
Thank you for being so kind & patient. You put together such a beautiful wake and service for our family.
Love; Scarlett, Amber, Holly & Brooke.
Dear Mike & Staff,
Making funeral arrangements for my mom was one of the hardest things I've ever had to do. Working with you and your staff was SO EASY. I cannot thank you enough. You covered everything and the services went very well. Every person we dealt with at Kerry's was wonderful.
Thank you all so much, Sherry.
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.

Mike & Staff,
Just a note of sincere thanks for your assistance with the services of my father-in-law. Your staff was very welcoming and made a difficult time easier to bear. Your remodeling of the facilities is just beautiful and so accommodating to the needs of family members. 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.
Mike-- 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.
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.
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.
Thanks for your services. Excellent Job!
