“Hello Krause family – my husband and I attended a visitation/service at your beautiful location in Brookfield. I’ve never written to a funeral home before, although I’ve had occasion to visit many. Yours is EXCEPTIONAL. Even as we drove into your property, it’s grace and beauty calmed and greeted us.

The layout and the attention to detail of each facet – from the lovely and spacious covered entry to the large gathering room to the small alcove of refreshments to the intimate chapel (no power actually made it better!) right down to the restroom facilities is exceptional. The gentle attentive staff was icing on the cake. Heartfelt thanks and gratitude for your careful care of those who are hurting.

It made a beautiful difference in a day full of emotions. I’m not local, but if I were I’d absolutely ear-mark your location for my own end of life plans. May God bless your work and your efforts to attend others in a time of intense need.”

The cookies were a big hit with everybody.”

“Over the top from preplanning to burial. Everyone was pleased, and dad would have been happy to know all his wishes were carried out as he had planned. The staff you had at the church was extraordinary! Very professional and respectful of us at all times. Also, dad had been critically ill the weeks before he died. Whoever worked with his body, especially his face, really did an outstanding job—he looked well rested and ready for eternal peace. Difficult to say about a body, but he looked really good; handsome and not at all made up. He had scars on his lips when he died from all the tubes in his mouth and nose and we could not even see these. That really helped us heal a bit.”
