I can't say enough about the kindness and compassion that Mark, Nancy, Rob, and Jessica provided our family during the loss of my brother. Through the entire process from meeting Mark at Journey Care where my brother passed to picking out and setting up his funeral and the entire day of the funeral we could not have asked for more support and strength then they gave us. Thank you again for everything you did and provided for us. You made us feel like we were one of your family members and my brother was very happy looking down from above!

Justen Funeral Home has been the place that has handled all of our family funerals since 1972 beginning with my great -grand parents. Mark and his staff are the utmost professionals and do not leave any details unattended to. They were there to guide my brothers and sister and I through the entire process as we were dealing with the grief of losing our mother. There was no doubt in our mind where we going to go when our mother passed away. Thank you Mark for being a part of our family for over 45 years.

Navigating through all that is involved with a loved one’s death is emotionally difficult and physically draining. Trying to remember everything that needs to be taken care of, piled on top of the emotional stress of acute grief is beyond overwhelming. When making my father’s funeral arrangements, the Justen family walked with us through every part of the process. Every step along the way was smooth and seamless. Knowing that we could confidently trust that the wake service and the funeral at the church was all in the best and caring hands truly helped to ease our hearts and minds in our grief. Everything was provided with an utmost level of professionalism, and (just as important, ) with the warmth and compassion as if they were making arrangements for their own family member. Our endless thanks to you from the Marulewski family.

Thank you to Mark and Robert for going out of their way to help us and our family in this difficult time. They took excellent care in helping us to decide what was best for our family needs. This will be a lasting memory for all of us and especially the grand kids. They picked the most awesome Deacon we could have ever asked for to do the services. Thanks again for making this time a bit more bearable. Sincerely the Smids
