This funeral home and it's staff went above and beyond with their service. Doug was especially kind, patient and provided great guidance during this very difficult time. Our family could not be more pleased with the outcome and we would highly recommend Fawcett and Junker funeral home to our family and friends.

I am writing to thank you and to compliment you on your arrangement for services last Wednesday, and conducting the funeral for my Uncle Bill Bruegger. He was a fine fellow, and deserved this send off service. All the Bruegger family appreciated most sincerely the detailed planning and conduct of Uncle Bill’s funeral. You responded in a very timely way after he died to take possession of the remains in Rochester You helped me select the casket, vault, flowers, and other items associated with the funeral in a most professional way. Thank you for arranging for the military salute by all those men, and the flag ceremony. The casket flowers were beautiful, and the other flower arrangements also beautified the church. We had anticipated this funeral some time ago, which is why I sent you the funeral planning information. You prepared a fine obituary, placed it in the relevant newspapers, and delivered copies for our records. Thank you for the prayer shawl, the brass cross, the book for attendee signatures, and the cards for acknowledging attendees to the church funeral. Uncle Bill would be the first to acknowledge the excellence of these arrangements. If I understood you correctly, the tombstone engraving will be performed in the spring, and you have made arrangement for that as well. I am sure this will not be the last of the funerals for the Bruegger family at the Abbott Funeral Home and Crematory. Please pass on to your other men assisting in this funeral our sincere gratitude for the beautiful service and burial ceremony.

From the preliminary pre-planning meeting before both our parents died, through the memorial service and beyond, we could not have been more pleased with the help and the concern from the staff at the Abbott Funeral Home and Crematory. Their attention to detail, overall knowledge, professionalism, and compassion made these difficult times easier to bear. Every need we had was quickly and respectfully addressed. Without hesitation we would recommend Abbott Funeral Home and Crematory to anyone.

Dear Doug and Brian - I appreciate so much your helpful guidance through his wishes for his last remains. Living this far away didn't make it any easier for me. Thank you for carrying out my wishes at the cemetery. It was done with great dignity. Who knows, maybe we started a trend.


Mr. Penning - Thank you for you patience and thoughtfulness. It helped us all to respect our husband and father's memory. To us he was a very special person.


Brian - I can't thank you enough for all of your assistance after his death. You were professional, but have a great knack for listening to what the family wants. I appreciated all of your advice and ideas and am confident that he would be pleased with what we did (or didn't do). Thank you for all of your support during this difficult time!
