When our beloved husband and father died, we made contact with Pat at Kessler's. He guided us through the various aspects of planning a funeral. He made sure that every detail was handled in a way that matched our wishes. He coordinated every aspect so that from the beginning to the end, our loved one was honored. We were treated like family and we are grateful for the care and attention we received. Thank you Pat and Kessler's staff!

Dear Pat and staff,
We want to thank you so much for helping us with mom's funeral preparation and services. The extra touches like letting me do mom's hair and arranging the transportation and burial in Madison all helped to make it a perfect day for our mom.

I just wanted to take this time to thank you so much for taking care of mother. Mother looked beautiful!! So natural, so peaceful - I felt as though she was about to rise up and talk to us! And her hair - she, I'm sure, loved it!! ( I wish the funeral homes in this area would take lessons from you'all!)
Again - thank you!

This is a couple months late in coming, however, I wanted to publicly express the gratitude we have for Kessler Funeral Home. You have assisted our family for years & we would have chosen no other to assist us with my mom's final journey. The respect & dignity they had for our mom was truly touching. They also had great patience with many questions & phone calls. I could go on & on, but I'll end with saying that they made a heartbreaking experience bearable.

The facilities were beautiful, clean, and met every need. A friend of mine said, "she felt like a princess in a palace."
Mom looked beautiful! The photo boards were wonderful! The stands for the flowers, etc. so lovely. Pastor Paul was so warm and gave a great message on Psalm 23. I loved the idea of putting a flower on mom's casket at the burial.

My grandfather, Herb Stinski, had his funeral at Kessler's. Kessler has done an excellent job for our extended family. We knew we could trust that Kessler could be counted on for this important service. Kessler was incredible at my sister-in-law's funeral, Shana Beck-Stinski.

My hope and prayer is that we won't need Kessler's services soon, but when the time comes for my dad, we will be carrying on the Kessler tradition with our family.
