Our family can't thank you enough for making such a difficult time when our dad passed away in June..Especially coming from out of town during the pandemic It was overwhelming, you were there from the beginning and guided us along the way & made this horrific ordeal of his death more helped more than you realize from the first call.. I need to share the last image of my dad, in the nursing home, was not how I wanted to remember him, Kurt, you & your staff did something that I did not think was possible, you made me say goodbye to my dad, not the man that laid in the bed a week prior, I will forever be grateful for that, we appreciate you making his last public view honorable. Your attention & kindness to all of our calls & concerns will always be remembered..🙏❤️

My husband Mike died suddenly and unexpectedly, he dropped dead in front of me. Kurt is the ultimate professional, he was compassionate, understanding, and very "Creative" in providing services for my beloved husband. We played Motley Crue at his service. Thank you a Zillion times over.

As we knew our time with my husband was very short, we had already decided to put our trust in Hopler/Eschbach for his final arrangements. When you're grieving you want someone who shows compassion and understanding toward you and your family. Kurt was that person. From the first introduction to the ride to the cemetery, Kurt and Ben showed extreme care and concern that everything we desired as a tribute to Bill was carried through. Thank you so much Kurt and Ben.

In our time of need, we found Kurt & I can honestly say his compassion will never be forgotten. In this world, there is far and few in-between- genuine, descent, authentic people left, but as my family & I were so deeply grieving, Kurt took the burden off our shoulders and guided us through the whole process. No one wants to say Goodbye to their loved ones, but at least we had one of God's Helpers, next to us through this time of need. Kurt, Saying "Thank You" will never be enough. You are Truly an Angel! My Grandma would have adored you. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
Sincerely-Amanda Sue Gyurik

Kurt, thank you for all your help, you did a fantastic job at a difficult time. Your professionalism extended was outstanding, since dads wishes was a donation to Upstate Medical- Syr, NY, you moved quick and got the job done.. thank you very much. I will highly recommend your services to others..

I cannot express enough how well we were treated by Kurt. Since I live in Pittsburgh, PA, it was hard to know whom to trust with my brother's memorial. After calling several funeral homes in the area, we chose Kurt simply because of the way he treated us from the first call to our last goodbye. Thank you Kurt...I cannot give a better testimonial to the kindness and compassion that you extended our family.

I would just like to say that I appreciate the service and help that my family received from Kurt. It is a very hard time in our life when we have to bury a loved one and your mind is not quite there. Kurt guided us through everything with great respect and compassion. Thank you Kurt.

Loosing my husband at such a young age was the worse thing than I would ever imagine I had to endure in life. Despite the pain, the service given to us by Kurt and his team, made this process easier. Our small kids had the opportunity to see daddy at the funeral home and church. They had a playing area for the kids. I do not know how I would do it without the help I got.
This is not the kind of business you want to be a frequent customer, but knowing that death is part of life, I am sure I will come back and choose their services again.
Thank you very much

This is my second time dealing with Kurt, the first time was my daughter. This time is my partner. Kurt is so kind and compassionate. Anyone who has lost a loved one know, it's very difficult. Kurt, thank you for making David going home so beautiful! Your kindness and compassion is appreciated. I hope never to see you again under these circumstances. I do highly recommend you.
Thank you and God bless you.

We can not thank Kurt enough for his dedication, attention to detail and kindness for our family .
The services for my Dad in Law were beautiful. I know that he would be proud.
Your kindness during this difficult time is truly appreciated .

Kurt was tremendous, I can not say enough about his service. Kurt took care of every aspect for the military funeral for my father and it was absolutely stunning. When my father passed, Kurt was at hospice within 30 minutes. Silly as it sounds but that was important to me. Kurt never rushed and offered ideas that helped us make decisions. You will be very pleased if you use this funeral home. Professionalism at its best.
