Amy was very helpful and kind. She helped me with getting Mom's obituary into the newspaper on time, identifying Mom's body, providing the cremation and death certificates, and making special Remembrance cards for Mom's Celebration of Life service.
Steve and everyone at Anderson were wonderful to work with. They took such beautiful care with our mom down to the littlest detail.
Tom & Mona Olsen
To the Staff at Anderson Funeral Home - words cannot express our sincere appreciation for your extraordinary assistance in coordinating the funeral service for our daughter and getting her back to Belvidere from Las Vegas.
Special mention to Amy for all your hard work and kind words at such a difficult time for us . . . whenever we were at the office the staff could not be more accommodating. Your patience and professionalism helped us through. We are forever thankful and grateful to all of you. We are so lucky to have you in our community.
I highly recommend Anderson. Everyone was kind, supportive and very helpful. They were up front about the costs and didn't try to upsell me on anything.
We had a unique situation where we had to transport the body from another state and coordinate with Anderson. They did an amazing job in working with us on all the details between the other out of state funeral home. The compassion and genuine sympathy by their entire staff was top notch, especially working with Amy. They took so much time and care to walk us through the process. I can't speak highly enough for their professionalism from planning the wake and funeral, to coordinating with the church and cemetery. I highly recommend Anderson and their entire team!
They did an absolute wonderful job and were very helpful and answered all our questions and my dad looked so good. I would definitely recommend them to anyone to go to for the end of life needs.
