Dear Arden & Kirk-
The two of you went above and beyond in so many ways. Helped, guided, and supported the family through an extremely difficult time. We know Mom & Dad would have been pleased with the visitation and the funeral service for Keith.

Thank you so much! I’m very grateful to you and I know he would have loved that — and the fall leaves.
I really appreciate all of the help you and Arden provided and the care with which you handled both me and my dad.

On behalf of the Stai and Norvold families, I wanted to thank you personally, Kirk and Arden, for the professional, yet incredibly kind and compassionate assistance you provided our families from the time of dad's passing to his memorial service and beyond. The guidance you gave in the midst of our grief, when decision making can seem overwhelming, was so helpful, and always conducted in a caring manner, and you patiently answered our many questions. We miss dad terribly and will always be grateful for the friendly yet dignified manner in which you carried out our wishes for his cremation and memorial service. Your earlier help with setting up our parents' funeral policies was also invaluable, as it made the planning and decision-making somewhat easier knowing everything was pre-paid. Again, thank you for helping us through a very difficult time. We appreciate you!

Kind regards,

Stacy Norvold

Kirk, Arden, Karen, Wendell & Jean,
Words can't express the gratitude we have for you all! From the time the hospice nurse told us Kirk would be calling to arrange getting Mom back to Bemidji. To Wendell assuring us that he would be at the cemetery until Mom was buried; you were all there taking care of the details. Thanks so much for all your kind words, memories of Mom and the hugs!! We were blessed to have you all join us in this journey!
Love & Prayers,
Jvonne's five little angels!

Kirk was the kindest man, and was beyond helpful to my family after my grandfather died. He is the very best and made the process as painless and stress free as possible. HIGHLY Recommend. Thank you all again for everything.

Thank you for all of your assistance in getting us through such a difficult time. While there are still many tough days (weeks, months, etc.) ahead, we couldn't have asked for a smoother process than the one you got us through. From Kirk coming to get Dad, to Joe walking us through the hoops, to Arden doing all the adminstration stuff to Karen at the visitation. All-Star Team!
Thank you,
