Dave you were so very much appreciated in the days following Larry’s death, April 27th, 2015. You were professional when needed and the friend we love when needed! Your guidance, attention to detail and knowledge were very much appreciated! The HUSKER tie was a very nice touch, the day of the service!! Lar would have loved it. The video tribute was very much appreciated and I continue to find solace in watching it. Thank you so much! Simmons- Rentschler is the ONLY way to go!

Adam & Dave, It is a very thoughtful idea to take pictures of all flowers, plants, etc because when we dispersed of them, we didn't collect all the cards. It was sure easy to look at the book and find which plant came from whom. THANKS!! Also THANK YOU for the wonderful job given to us during this time. You run a top notch business, and we appreciate your professional help. Barb

Adam thank you so much for your guidance in planning the details of dad's service. We know you went extra miles to grant our wishes but never backed out of any Nonamaker challenge we threw at you. Any things I thought of were already handled ahead of our arrival at the chapel. We endured sad times with you but I am pleased how all the flowers were arranged and how the celebration commenced. The pictures of the flowers are excellent and far beyond my expectations. I won't forget you and bet you won't forget the Nonamakers. I hope this made you smile. That's what life is about. Thanks lots. Sheila

Adam, You are very good at what you do. Our dad had five living kids, all with different (and some strong) personalities and you took it all in stride and worked well with us. I sent you many e-mails – several with attachments—and I also called several times. I think others also contacted you. You were terribly busy with funerals at the time of our dad’s passing, but you managed to give us the time we needed (and never made us feel like you didn’t have that time to give). Thank you so much and please pass our appreciation on to your wife and children. Sincerely, Deanna Roach

Adam and David: Thank you so much for everything. Your professionalism and caring helped our family in a very difficult time. Dad's funeral could not have been more perfect. Your willingness to get our whole family seated together was wonderful. With so many of us, that is not an easy task. But you made it happen. Again, thank you and may God bless.

Adam Thank you and your staff for the excellant services, we received for Reba Lammey. You did an outstanding job on putting pictures together for the DVD. Also thank you for keeping the obiturary - online - so I can send it to other friends and relatives, that were unable to attend funeral. And I appreciate the extra phone calls to get the lettering done on her stone. Thanks again, Reba Lammey's family

Adam & David, At a time when our family was at a loss of reality thru grief, you were very kind and considerate to us. We lost our loved one (my mother) unexpectedly right at the Christmas Holiday season. Adam and staff drove the body of my mother 8hrs AWAY from Smith Center on CHRISTMAS EVE of all days for her burial in her hometown. They did this in order to honor our wishes, as my mom always loved the song "I'll be home for Christmas, and this allowed us to honor her last wish of "being brought back to her home for Christmas!" I would say that was going ABOVE AND BEYOND! I am sure they put on hold their own families and Holiday plans that Christmas Eve, not many would do that, yet Adam did unselfishly! Thank you to both of you and your immediate family from the bottom of my heart for doing that in a time we were swallowed by grief. Jennifer Corbett (daughter of Jeanette Owen)

Adam & David, We can't thank you enough for making such a difficult time a little bit easier. As we have already told you, it was such a comfort having someone who knew Eric helping us through this. The service was wonderful and we have had many, many people comment on how nice it was and how it suited Eric and was such a tribute to his life. The DVD you put together with the pictures was amazing. We loved how you started it with Eric's favorite old-time photo and ended with him driving his '65 Mustang in the labor day parade. He was so proud of that car. Even now that the services are over, you continue to be a great help to us. Thank you for everything that you have done and continue to do.

Adam I cant thank you enough for helping me with my dads passing you are a great person thank u and god bless u!!!

Chelsea Kirby

As I was writing thank you's, I realized that two of the people I need to thank the most are you. You both, in your different ways, were incredible sources of strength and stability in a time when nothing felt secure. In reality, it did not feel as if I were working with a funeral home. It just was as though dear friends were at my side, keeping me going. I don't think I can find the words to truely express the full extent of my gratitude that it was you two who took care of Kurt at the end. So, I guess I will leave it at... Thank You, from the bottom of my heart. I couldn't have done it without you. In friendship & gratitude, Jess Bowman

Jess Bowman

I especially want to thank you, Adam, for the wonderful job you did in managing my Mom's service, from inception to completion... You embody the old-fashioned sense of quality and just the right blend of friendly ease and knowledgeable courtesy that brings a perfect grace to proceedings such as ours. I was so impressed with your considerate responsiveness to my wishes and preferences, as well as your solicitous care of the service site and all the myriad details of the production, which came off smoothly, without a single hitch. You are a true professional, skilled and efficient, and yet you still have a very kind and personal touch -- I appreciate you and all you did very much. The whole experience could not possibly have been improved upon.

Nancy E. Wood

Adam thank you so much for a job so well done helping us prepare our Dad's memorial service. I had't realized how you had picked up on the fact that we wanted to honor him as a WW II veteran until I saw the family video that you had prepared. You just seemed to be a part of the family as we were preparing for the service seeing to every little detail. Also may you know that when you could'nt be there beside us David picked right up with the same compassion and professionalism. Thank you again for all that you did. Barb, Dale, Rick and families

Barbara Cue

We would like to say thank you so very much for putting together the history of our church DVD together for us. We had a great time looking through the old files & compiling just the "tip of the iceberg" history-wise of informative items of the church. We played the DVD before worship, so many got to enjoy it. I know it had been hectic for you when we asked for it. Thanks Again

United Methodist Church – SC

Hey guys, We can't thank you enough for everything. You are wonderful!! We are so glad we chose your funeral home. You guys were recommended to us and we will do the same with other people.

The things you took care of were fabulous and your patience with me was remarkable. I really do appreciate everything you have done. You helped make sure everything was done the way Gene wanted it and helped us accomplish things at a very inexpensive cost as well. I cant thank you enough. God bless you and your family thru the holidays as well as the years to come.

Cindy Beckmann & the Girls

On behalf of my family, I want to commend your company for the professional and courteous handling of my family and their needs. Particularly, your representative, Adam, he demonstrated a genuine willingness to assist our family in the difficult decisions at hand when dealing with the death of a loved one. Adam remained professional, but VERY sympathetic and understanding.
