What Our Families Are Saying

My father passed away on 12/10/2021 and he requested that we use Buhrig for his burial arrangements. My family and I were taken back by the level of professionalism and attention to detail that was displayed by the Buhrig team. My mother told me that she “felt like royalty” and that “they didn’t miss a thing”. I can’t thanks them enough for making an unbearable situation bearable. This was the first time I had to walk anyone through the burial process and they talked my mom through the entire process. The cost was VERY reasonable, less than what I was planning on. Liz, thank you and your team from the Shifflet family.

Eight weeks ago tonight, my mom passed. Each day since then I have tried to put into words my heartfelt appreciation to all who cared for my her at Buhrig. Within 30 minutes of calling them, Kurt and Tim appeared to escort my mom to their facility. They were wonderfully respectful, did not hurry me, and allowed me to walk with them to their vehicle. I will forever be grateful to all of the staff members, Liz, Tim, Kurt, Bob, and all who helped me get through those first few days. They were all so professional, compassionate, caring, and never hurried me when I had a boatload of questions. A nicer group of people I had never met. I thought I was ready for my mom's passing, but, of course, that was not true. She looked so beautiful when we said our last good bye. I am still challenged every day to accept what is, but I know she is in a better place now. Thank you to everyone at Buhrig for helping me get through this. I am enjoying the grief pamphlets I have received. They are so helpful and I have read them over more than once. Again, thanks to all the staff members -- I couldn't have done it without you.

With my very best wishes for a happy holiday!

I would like to thank each member of the Buhrig Funeral home for their absolute professional and caring actions. Somehow they made what was an unbearable loss a loving and lovely tribute to my husband, Wayne. They took their time and allowed all the time in the world for my family and I to spend with Wayne, to say goodbye. The Gathering Place brought together friends and family where the celebration continued. Thank you so much for all that you did for us.

I am writing this on behalf of my brother Steven E Dority who passed away Dec 23, 2021. This was my first time dealing with a funeral home and I can't say enough how professional and how the staff put my mind at ease when dealing with my brothers death. It's hard enough being in NM and dealing with this during the pandemic. Bob, Kirk and the rest of the Staff that I had spoken with on the phone were so caring and understanding. Even when we finally took care of Steven's funeral mass and burial they were so helpful, caring and compassionate. Thanks again Buhrig. 🥰

I would like to say THANK YOU first off. Buhrig is a first class operation from start to finish. When you first deal with them they will help with every detail from start to finish. They treat you like they are dealing with their own family. The amount of care and respect shown is incredible. The detail to small things to the obvious is incredible. When you arrive on “the day “from the men parking cars to the ladies inside showing you around getting drinks is fantastic. Thank you again the day went smooth and easy.

I read many of the testimonials folks have written of the wonderful care you provide to your clients. Certainly hearts felt and true. We certainly fully agree with every sentiment. We, for our part, couldn't say anything to add to what anyone stated in their testimonials. Everything you did for us was as perfect as humanly possible. We are so grateful.

Bob, Liz, Kirk and Staff,

There are so many words that can describe your business and the services you provide. The one word that means more to me is "special". From the moment I walked in to make my husband Dan's arrangements, to our parting at the Gathering Place, you and your staff made me feel "special". Your efficiency, organization, and compassion still have me in awe. I can't thank you enough, and am very appreciative to all of you and your "special" talents. You honored Dan's life with dignity and solemnity.

Love, Blessings, and lots of hugs,
Barb Zydorczyk and family

Words cannot express or describe the care , support and service Buhrig provided my family and myself with the passing of my husband. We instantly became part of their family and they became part of ours. At a time when families are grieving and feeling overwhelmed, Buhrig steps up to the plate and removes all the stress and strain from the situation. They did all the work so that we had an opportunity to peacefully grieve. Friends and family have shared with me since Ed’s service how impressed they were with Buhrig’s service. I could never have done this without them.

Bob, Kirk, and Liz {and all those who so graciously took care of our family and friends on Saturday},

As you already know I was expecting that we would be treated like "royalty" and you came through. You also know that Sharon, Kerwin, and I had no previous connection with a funeral home but the experience I had with Bob because of GFWC Mechanicsburg led me to suggest that we contact you. You were informative with no pressure to do things we were not wanting to do and you spent as time as we needed to make decisions.

We received so many positive comments from those who attended the celebration. I tend to think that some joined us just to see what the Gathering Place looked like and had to offer and certainly had never attended such a celebration. I appreciated the fact that because of the structure of what we did I was able to visit and laugh with family and friends some of whom I had not seen for a long time and did not spend the afternoon crying. I told everyone who offered condolences to me that Dad's passing saddened me but made me happy that he suffered no pain nor a lingering illness. If only all of us could be fortunate enough to pass from this life in the same manner.

Know that I'm sending "HUGS" to all,

August 23, 2021

The entire staff at Buhrig went above and beyond to guide our family through this difficult process. Kirk helped with the decision making for our loved one's tribute. He was kind and respectful as were all of the folks who were present for the funeral. Josephine deserved the dignity and compassion which was shown by all. The luncheon at The Gathering Place was lovely and the entire staff provided excellent service. Thank you.

I would just like to thank everyone there at the Funeral Home for their thoughtfulness and caring ways with the death of our Uncle Mile (Moe). So much happened within that week we didn’t know if we were coming or going and it was nice to know he was in caring hands. I admire all of you for what you do. I know I wouldn’t be able to. Once again thank you from all of us. May God be with you and bless you all.

There are not enough words to express what myself and family thought of Buhrig's. Bob, Liz, Kirk and staff you went beyond our expectations. You all treated us with dignity, provided guidance and support and made us feel at ease. Most of all I'll never forget your patience with us.
Every step of the way for Dan's journey was carried out to perfection. From making the arrangements, to the church and finally to his final resting place was a beautiful tribute honoring my husband's life. You truly care!
Of course, I can't forget the Gathering Place. We were treated like royalty, food and service were excellent and the hugs special. On your behalf we have received many compliments.
Thank you for the tree you had planted and especially for the tapestry blanket. It is truly a life tribute tapestry. So many memories to treasure.
With appreciation and Blessings,

I don't know what I would have done if Buhrig wasn't here. But , that is my point, they were here, and with me all the way. They respected and helped honor my husband. People still tell me how nice the service and the gathering afterwards, was.. My daughter and I felt blessed by them. I highly recommend this funeral home.

To all my friends at the Buhrig Funeral Home,
I just wanted you to know I very much appreciated the books I have been getting. I am a very big reader and I read over them all a few times. They have been a great help over the worst time of my life. My husband, Bob's sudden dying was a great shock. We were married for 53 and a half years; we made a great couple.
Blessing to all of you.

Dear Bob and Liz, My wife and I along with many friends recently attended the gathering for Helen Cookie Metallo. Her husband Joe and Cookie are very good friends of ours. The service was Above and beyond there could have not been a better gathering. Talking with many of the friends and family that attended had nothing but positive comments. It was a very calming end with the wonderful dinner provided. Cookie could not have has a better gathering for the end of her journey in this world AMEN

You all are quite a team. You are not a business, you are missionaries of love.

Your thoughtfulness, kindness and excellence is just what I needed. The service was excellent. You gave us your time and care and helped us get through a very tough time. Thank you for fixing my shoe and serving our guests so well. What a blessing each one of you are!

From the depth of my heart - Thank You!

Dear Bob, Liz and all,

Thank you for the care you took in dealing with my father's passing. You all were so easy to work with. The ceremony was beautiful and you did such a great job with the video chat. It felt like they were almost there! You helped us through a difficult time and we wanted to let you know how much we appreciate your professionalism.

Professionalism and genuine caring, that sums up my experience at Buhrig Funeral Home and Crematory. The staff quietly and effortlessly attended to every detail from start to finish. They listened patiently and gave advice so that the service would be perfect. Thank you for everything. My dad would have been so pleased. I know I was.

Just wanted to thank you all for providing a beautiful and memorable service for my dad Frank Uhler. Dad looked so at peace, thank you for doing a great job. The beautiful display of pictures, video, rewards and the beautiful mural and military honors went above and beyond. And the zoom availability was so nice. And thank you for the very good food and nice reception following the service and all the hard work and care everyone gave to us. Thank you all for making this special for all of us. It was greatly appreciated by our entire Uhler and extended family and friends.

Memorial day service was beautifully done!! So important to remember the fallen! There was also a secondary divine intervention on several levels. The Buhrig team was so so welcoming!!! Seating was very accessible! Water being offered was a class act. All the tributes and placing of carnations was so moving! On a personal note: my husband Bob and I have a grandson Ethan Fager who played trumpet that day. The "Creation Hymn" brought tears to my eyes ; first for the fallen and then for the fact that this will be Ethan's last musical function before graduation. He also played taps. A Beautiful moving day! Thank you so much for your onging care and compassion.

My Friends Bob, Kirk, and Liz,

Where do I begin?

Thank you for the enormous amount of patience you showed to my family and I as we made preparations to bury my son, Harry.

I think his funeral service was beautiful and just how he would've wanted it. The tapestry took my breath away... it was a perfect memorial for Harry. Thank you so very much for all that you did. I have received so many positive comments about the way you were able to hold the services in this COVID environment. The Zoom was helpful due to family being far away and the snow they had in the New England area. Thank you so much for EVERYTHING. You were wonderful during my time of sorrow.

With appreciation,

Dear Buhrig Funeral Home & Crematory,

Words cannot adequately express our deep appreciation for ALL you've done to help our family since the passing of our beloved husband, father, & grandfather - Douglas R. Ballou.

From the very beginning, you treated him with dignity & respect. You were so patient with our family trying to make decisions while grieving a loss. Along the way of making arrangements for his farewell viewing, burial, and memorial service on September 4, 2020, you all went far above & beyond to accommodate our needs under such difficult pandemic circumstances!

We will always be thankful for you and all you've done to help our family!

May God bless you greatly just as He has blessed us with you all!! THANK YOU!

In His love & shalom,

Please accept this message of thanks for all the time & energy you gave. I very much enjoyed our conversations, our breakfast, & the education you shared about your organization. I could strongly feel the passion you yourself have & when I met some of your team last Saturday, I felt their kindness. Your property is just beautiful and calming - so nicely done!

Dear Bob, Kirk, & Liz,

Thank you for the tree that you arranged to have planted in honor of my mother, Margaret Lyles. I can't thank you enough for all that you did to help me plan such a beautiful farewell for her. You certainly lived up to your motto! Because we care. You listened attentively and took every detail into account. You took extra time to talk to me and answer my questions about the process. You allowed my aunt & I to participate in preparing my mother's body for her viewing & burial ~ an experience that was one of the greatest gifts of this journey. I felt like you took care of my mother as if she were your own, and that was a great comfort to me. The reception after the funeral was wonderful - food was great! And the Hershey Kisses on every table were such a thoughtful touch.

You obviously have something special in all that you offer the bereaved - may God bless you for all you do, and I wish you continued success in your ministry.

Warm Regards,

Cathy Shelly

Dear Bob, Liz, & Kirk,

It is truly hard to find the words to tell you how deeply I appreciate all you did to help me and my family during such a difficult time in our lives. You all are so skilled at taking care of hearts while taking care of business. From the bottom of my heart ~ thank you!

I am still receiving lengthy letters, phone calls, texts, and emails from family members, friends, neighbors, church members, & acquaintances of Mom's raving about our Virtual Memorial Service. I have heard from numerous people that it was the most beautiful service they have ever attended. As I said before, it was my very last gift to my precious mother, and I honestly could not be more pleased with how it all turned out! The hours and hours of work and effort you put into it are greatly appreciated by my daughters and I, my half-brother in California, as well as Mom's numerous nieces & nephews who loved her dearly. It was a perfect tribute from beginning to end. Again, my heartfelt thanks.

Thank you for answering all of my questions, taking time to explain things to me, and supporting me when the pain was just too overwhelming. I will treasure your support and kindnesses the rest of my life.

I appreciate the tree, as well ~ Mom would just love that! Thank you.

Most sincerely,
Beth and Family

Thank you all so much for all your help with my mother's funeral. I want to tell you on behalf of my family that we really appreciated your kind and thoroughly competent care of us and my mom, Nancy.

Thank you again.

I'd like to extend my sincere thanks to the entire staff of Buhrig Funeral Home. They handled every little detail and provided me with comfort - knowing that I didn't have to handle them.
Both my parents entrusted their care to Buhrig and both services were loving tributes to them.
I plan to use Buhrig for my personal arrangements when the time comes. Thanks again!!!

My mothers service was beautiful. My family and I were grateful for the love and care provided for my mother. Friendly and caring staff were very accommodating to all our needs. I felt very comfortable saying my farewell to my mother while she was under their care. I felt their care of her was dignified and supportive.

Dear Bob,
You may not pastor at a church but you do more ministry as a funeral director than anyone I know! God has truly called you to be His instrument to touch the lives of many people in very powerful ways. My family and I are counted among them. Thank you for being a blessing to all of us and may God bless you as you continue to serve Him!

I wanted to extend my sincere thanks and appreciation to you and your entire staff. You provided comfort, compassion, and guidance during a very difficult time. From our first call through the funeral service, you’ve made this process seamless allowing me and my family to mourn the loss of my mother. After the service, you made sure I was OK and to see if there was anything else you can do for us. You made us feel like family. Thank you for taking care of us and providing a safe and a beautiful service and tribute honoring my mother’s life. Thank you for “Being There”.

There aren't enough superlatives to express my gratitude for the kind, compassionate, complete care that you and your staff heaped upon me and my family before, during and after the funeral of my husband, Jerry.

Having the service Zoomed was a Godsend, as many of our relatives are elderly and far away, even if we weren't in a pandemic. Please pass along to George what an excellent job he did.

Of course, even before the service we had Lisa's flat tire to contend with. Then, also you had my big concentrator to lug from place to place and tubing to move about.

Next was the Gap. On the drive up, we discovered there was not an outlet in which to plug my portable oxygen. I was not yet panicky, but concerned. You appeared at my window, asked what was wrong, and when I said nothing, you weren't buying it. Very shortly, you were back at my side with a portable generator and word that you had informed the Gap that I too was a vet and needed help getting the correct paperwork. BOOM!! Done, and I now have a reservation at the Gap!!

Upon my return to Mechanicsburg, I found my concentrator back in my house and everything in place. I have no idea how any of that happened, only that it did, and the final Buhrig magic was when you appeared at my door that night with a chocolate cake and white buttercream icing!

Thank you, Bob, for everything, from the bottom, middle, and top of my heart!

January 14, 2021

While my husband I had preplanned our service, there were still a number of details that needed to be finalized and Bob, and his very capable staff handled everything extremely well. In this year of Covid, I didn't think that a number of our out-of-state friends would be able to participate in Tim's service. Bob had an excellent process for public visitation and more friends came than we expected. The virtual interaction and service went very smoothly and I've received compliments on what Bob and their staff accomplished. From beginning until after the graveside service, I really didn't have to worry about anything. I was gently guided through the process with extreme professionalism from all. My family thanks all.

We would like to take the time to thank Bob, Kirk, and all the staff for the assistance at a very difficult time. The attention to detail and caring attitude of the entire staff was obvious. We were able to honor the life of Aunt Jane in manner consistent with her wishes. The additional service provided by way of the Gathering Place simplified things greatly.

Today was the funeral for my mother at Buhrig Funeral Home and Crematory and the detail and commitment to provide a thoughtful experience was obvious. There was no detail missed. The video of my mother’s life was so simple for our family to create together and the programs, photos and memory items were so thoughtfully created. Our family had the opportunity to not only share precious moments, but to experience a family meal together that was outstanding at their new Gathering Place. It was like being at home. Can not thank the staff enough for their kindness to each person in our family. It was truly a moment to remember fondly.

Dear Bob, Missy, Kirk and all other associates,

Thank you for providing a beautiful and memorable funeral for mom yesterday. Everything was perfect.

I know it's not easy to prepare every detail in such a limited time period but you did and went well above our expectations. Bob took down every detail during our first meeting. Missy made sure the video and music was perfect. She also wanted to make sure that mom's hairstyle was correct. Kirk corrected and recorrected the obit to make sure it was perfect (even on Wed morning).

In addition, the food was excellent! Everyone was commenting on how good it was.

Kirk did a great job at the gravesite and even played the polkas there. That was great. Bet you had a couple residents in the cemetery doing a polka.

Thank you everyone for your kindness during our sorrowful time.

Bob Buhrig and his staff are the most amazing people ever. They are extremely perceptive. They listen. They made the worst week of my life into the most healing after my husband died unexpectedly at a very young age. You cannot go wrong in choosing this funeral home. I cannot say enough about them and the services they provided to me and my family.

Bob & Company,

I want to thank you all for your kindness, compassion and professionalism in the services for my mother. Everything went beautifully and I'm sure my mother would have been proud and happy! I said to my sister and Jeff, "if it wasn't for a funeral, I would have felt like a queen!" Everyone was so attentive to our needs & desires. Bob, you certainly have a gift for putting people at ease in a very difficult and sorrowful time. And it can't go without saying the dinner was absolutely delicious, and I thoroughly enjoyed my icing :-) and cake.

Thanks for the family atmosphere of your beautiful facility, and most of all the marvelous staff, it all felt like home.

Thank you

My wife and I recently had a wedding rehearsal dinner at Buhrig's Gathering Place for our son’s wedding. Bob and Cathy were wonderful to work with. They helped us make all the perfect choices for an absolute perfect event, the food, staff, building were all point on. They were very accommodating to everyone’s needs and we couldn’t have asked for a better turnout. Buhrig's Gathering Place is very beautiful inside and a wonderful addition to our small town community. I highly recommend Buhrig’s Gathering Place for any special event you may have in mind, and I wouldn’t hesitate for one second to have Bob & Cathy host another special event for us at Buhrig's Gathering Place, I give them a two thumbs up and wish them all the success in world. Thank you so much for going over in above to make our special evening perfect.

We just attended a funeral under your care. I was so impressed with your personal who were with us and the family from 10:30 a.m. until 7:00 p.m. Everyone was caring, professional, welcoming, and organized. Your facilities including your family dining facilities are outstanding. Your organization is probably the best run funeral home I have encountered.

September 1, 2020

Buhrig Funeral Home & Crematory is the best when it comes to comforting grieving family members during the difficult time of saying goodbye to a loved one. All staff members were kind and thoughtful to all present. In addition, the Buhrig Gathering Place provided an extension of the same thoughtful care while serving a delightful meal for those who wished to join us for lunch. I am also thankful for the special care the staff provided to insure the safety of all present that special distancing , sanitizing and wearing masks were complied with in accordance with the COVID-19 requirements. The Virtual Gathering via Video Chat (Zoom) together with the telephone conference calling made it possible for family members living in Nevada to witness the Funeral Services and to gain comfort via chatting with the Chaplin. Buhrig is highly recommended by myself and my family members.

Good afternoon,
I just wanted to take a moment to thank you and your staff for all your attention and care during today's service. Ironically, our family has an annual reunion every 3rd Saturday in August. We had canceled it this year in light of COVID-19 concerns. Uncle Ed brought us together anyway. Obviously we would have preferred different circumstances, this was the first time many of us have seen each other during the pandemic. Your staff took every measure possible to allow us to be together and to grieve but also stay safe and mitigate risk. Thank you so much! I’m sure it is not easy to navigate all of the restrictions, but you made it feel effortless.

Ed Hench was a remarkable man and you provided a very fitting send off. I especially loved the fact that the funeral procession drove by his home one last time.

My friend is a member of the Cumberland County Honor guard. Earlier this week when I mentioned who was providing the arrangements, he noted “Oh those guys are on top of it. They are always prompt, masterfully adapt and are great at helping the family move through. You are going to be impressed.” He was completely correct!

Thank you for your professionalism, compassion and for taking care of us all so well.

Thank you so much Bob and staff at Buhrig Funeral Home. When our dad went home to be with our Lord Jesus Christ, it was quite stressful. But you made the planning of the funeral and luncheon much easier then we thought. All of you were so kind, considerate, and attentive to our needs. Thank you again.

Buhrig's Gathering Place is such a beautiful and comfortable facility, the health safety precautions were above and beyond, the staff was so kind and helpful in every way.

Buhrig's Gathering Place is highly recommended. Everything is excellent - food, ambience and service. Most especially the people working are so welcoming, we felt comforted during this difficult time. Thank you to all the staff of Buhrig's Gathering Place esp. Mr. Kirk and Mr. Bob, Joanne too.

I fell compelled to write you to thank you for your wonderful services offered to my brother, Ed, and all of Polly's family last week. From parking assistance to the gentle handling of us, to the reception in Buhrig's Gathering Place, all service was offered in a kind, gentle and thoughtful manner almost making us forget the external challenges of social distancing, sanitizing and wearing masks! Thank you.

June 26, 2020

To The Buhrig Staff:

I want to share, on behalf of our entire family, the extraordinary efforts you all took to make the care and services for Polly so meaningful. As the first event in our church after the start of the Covid issue, you worked tirelessly with the church to ensure everything was dignified and compliant.

Likewise with the Buhrig Gathering Place, the organization of the event and quality of the food and service were superb.

Thanks to you all.

Dear Buhrig Staff,

On the anniversary of my husband's, Don, passing I would like to thank you from the bottom of my heart for the beautiful funeral you provided for him; but also for your constant thought of me. The series "Continuing Care" was extremely helpful all these months.

Hope you are all coping and are healthy with this terrible virus.

I have received many compliments on the way you conducted the service using Zoom. So special, that's how you made me feel. Thank you very much.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making Mom's funeral perfect in every way. Bob, you certainly have a job you are perfectly suited for. Your kind, perceptive ways and sense of humor make everyone comfortable and confident that everything will be perfect. We are still smiling about the potato chips and cheese tray when we arrived and the Hershey Bars and to-go-cup of tea as we left. You are the best!

Dear Bob & Associates,

We want to thank you for your service to our family for the funeral of our Mother, Ruth.

We appreciate all you have done in going the extra mile to accommodate our family needs. Thank you for all the personal touches. In this time of the virus, we know it is difficult to adjust what can be done for families. However, you and your staff made it work very well.

A special thank you for offering your minister, George, to tell some of Mother's life story. He did a wonderful job.

Bless all of you at the funeral home.

The Buhrig Funeral Home went above and beyond the highest degree of professionalism in their care for my mother. They were compassionate and very helpful to all of us every step of this journey. All of the pain we endured was made a little easier by Bob and his staff.

The Buhrig Funeral Home did an outstanding job taking care of our dearly loved mother's passing during the Coronavirus Pandemic. Their attention to detail, their efficient process, and most of all their kindness and understanding of our family's grief helped us all get through our crisis more easily. Bob Buhrig and his staff went the extra mile to ensure our every need was taken care of during a time when it meant the most to me and my family. It is with gratitude that I rate them the very highest in customer service.

The Buhrig Funeral Home did a tremendous job with my Dad's passing several weeks ago. This was at the beginning of the corona virus panic and the staff at Buhrig had to make a number of last minute changes with cancellations. They handled everything beautifully and our family and friends could not say enough good things about Bob Buhrig and his staff. We ended up having the memorial service and luncheon at the Buhrig Home and it could not have been nicer. The staff was tireless in getting everything taken care of and Bob Buhrig's attention to details was amazing. I wish there was a higher rating that 5 stars.

I would like to thank Bob and his wonderful staff at the Buhrig Funeral Home & Crematory for their kindness and compassion shown toward our family. The unexpected and tragic passing of my sister, Jan Heiges, made it so difficult for our family to get through our grief. You all demonstrated such care and compassion as you helped our family through this process. The Celebration of Life for my sister at the Buhrig Gathering Place was a beautiful and ethereal experience.

From our first meeting through the entire process and services, we all felt the compassion from everyone at Buhrig Funeral Home. For any life changing events as this, we will definitely reach to you for your services. Even though this is and will forever be as a very difficult time, you helped us all have a beautiful experience at the Buhrig Gathering Place. For certain a 5 plus star rating.

No matter where I pass away Buhrig is going to take care of me. I have buried 3 prior and they did not hold a candle to how Bob handled our family. First the compassions he expressed, then so understanding of what the family wanted when we did not really have a clear understanding ourselves. I feel like they are family. Just love all and Bob at the the helm. You can not have a better or more beautiful experience.

There are no words to adequately express our appreciation for all that the Buhrig staff did to make the planning and funeral of our mom perfect in every way. From our family’s first planning meeting with Bob to our send off (with a cup of tea in a to-go-cup) provided by their staff, nothing could have been improved upon. Bob listened carefully to each family member and even small things like knowing that Mom loved Hershey bars, he insured that each of us was given one after dessert! During the dinner, that was delicious and plentiful, staff insured each person’s needs were met. We also loved the way family members were incorporated into each part of the service, from the closing of the casket to the seat belting of the coffin into the hearse by the grandchildren. On a scale of 1 to 10, Buhrig gets a 10 from us. We highly recommend them and we are so thankful that they were the funeral home that we selected!

I wanted to thank you from the bottom of my heart for all that you did to make sure everything went smoothly for Gene's funeral and burial. You assisted me from beginning to end and I could not have been more blessed to have chosen you as the funeral director.

I also wanted to thank you for all the time you spent with my family on the day of the funeral. You took the time to explain each step of the process and answered any questions we had. We could all tell that you take great pride in your work.

Lastly, a personal thank you from myself. You helped me plan the most challenging event of my life. Saying goodbye to my husband of almost 63 years was no easy task, but you made the planning process bearable and less painful. You took the time to listen to my wishes and made sure that Gene received nothing but the best. For that, I am forever thankful. I also cannot give my thanks enough for the beautiful afghan blanket, candle, and portrait of Gene. I will treasure these items for years to come.

Should the need arise, I will not hesitate to recommend your services in the future.

With Appreciation,

I just want to comment on the continuing care from the Buhrig staff. First I received a booklet on how to navigate the holidays while grieving. I shared it with another family member.
Recently, I received a second book called The Reality of Grief. It also is so comforting. I will also pass it on.
Thank you!

I would just like to thank the entire staff at Buhrig Funeral Home & Crematory for arranging everything for my mother's funeral. I cannot say enough positive things about the attention to detail and compassionate care that was provided by Bob and his staff to my family. They went well above and beyond what I expected by providing Skype video so my brother in California could view the funeral service to providing a private viewing for my daughter on very short notice before she had to leave for travel. This is the second funeral Bob and his staff has arranged for my family as they also provided their professional services for my father. My family and I are impressed with the professionalism of Buhrig Funeral Home & Crematory and highly recommend them.

Their relationships and communications with local businesses helped make for a smooth and easy process. I'd have no hesitation to put their services to work for me in the future and will recommend to friends, as needed. Many thanks!

Heartfelt thanks to the staff of Buhrig Funeral Home for the care, patience and compassion provided to our family with the passing of our Father, Robert Gump. You made a very emotional and stressful time so easy for us. We were a bit skeptical about having the “Gathering” prior to the service, but it worked out so well and we had so many compliments. We loved being able to gather with friends and family in a relaxed and comfortable atmosphere.

The professionalism and attention to every detail was second to none! What a beautiful memorial service and Celebration of Life. I know our Dad would have loved it.

Thank you again for everything!

Buhrig Funeral home took care of my family with the passing of my mother. We were handled with care and love and never once felt like we were anything other than a priority. All of our questions and concerned were answered in a professional and prompt time frame. We never felt rushed or pressured to make decisions according to budget. We had elementary school age children at the service and they were provided juice boxes and a tour so that they felt comfortable under what was a very stressful situation for them. We were able to have a delicious catered lunch easily on site without having to go to a second site for over 100 of our guests. They made a very stressful situation into a wonderful stress free, casual gathering celebrating my mother the way she would have liked.

Jennifer Kimmel

The team at Buhrig Funeral Home in Mechanicsburg, PA is top notch. They took a very stressful time for our family and turned it into a good experience. They are professional, caring, and thorough. I had people contact me after to tell me that they had never been to a nicer memorial service. We held a catered lunch in the atrium. We loved that they kept the business in the community by using Snapper’s. Their food was delicious.

Also, the team surprised us with a beautiful blanket with a picture of our dad. So touching. I just can’t say enough.

Buhrig Funeral Home presented a "Celebration of our Mother's Life" which is exactly what she wanted. After our mother, Ila Mae Maynor, passed away after a short illness at her youngest daughter's house in Harrison, PA, Buhrig Funeral Home & Crematory was contacted after several high recommendations! Our mother was a long-time resident of Ansted, WV and had to be transported for the services. Buhrig, with Bob & Liz, organized everything for transportation to WV, services at family church in WV, helped with reception and food served, and another short service at the mausoleum located in Ansted, WV. The professionalism, care, compassion, attention to details, and organization was absolutely the best funeral presentation, I have ever seen. My mother wanted a Celebration of her 88 years of living and a telling of her story, which was definitely achieved. Buhrig even surprised us by having "Russell Stover Candy", according to my mother the best candy ever made, handed out during the meal! "Thank You" is not enough to express our heartfelt appreciation.

Cannot say enough good things about Bob Buhrig. He fielded our call last Sunday when my mother passed at the extended care facility in GA. As I am in NC, and burial will take place in PA, there were many details that had to be attended to quickly. Bob jumped in and took care of all of it, He listened to me, to our unique family issues and proceeded calmly and efficiently. I never felt rushed or a bother. Thank you, sir, for your many kindnesses to us.

Compassionate, Caring, Patient and sensitive to your needs are just a few words to describe the highly professional care they give. You receive their full attention to detail while helping give you a sense of calm in a stressful situation. My husbands passing was difficult for me. I will be preplanning for myself and will trust them to help with that process.

Dear Bob, Missy, and Staff,

I just wanted to take a moment to thank all of you for the care and comfort you gave my family during the planning and the service for my Mom yesterday. The service was beautiful and you thought of every detail to make it as easy as possible for all of us. I had many visitors who were there yesterday tell me how much they were impressed by your attention to even the smallest details. I especially appreciated all your efforts to make sure that everything was exactly the way we wanted it...you went above and beyond to make sure that was the case. The feeling that every one of you truly cared about my mom and my family and worked very hard to make it a dignified and meaningful way for us to say goodbye to her really touched me. The attention you gave to making her look so peaceful and serene did not go unnoticed. My 13 year old grandson, when he viewed her, said, "She looks happy.", which was my exact thought the moment I first saw her face. I also appreciated being able to participate in the closing ceremony. I had never seen that done before and found it both very informative for the questions that everyone has about that part of it and also very respectful and caring.

I know in my heart that my Mom would have been very happy with everything and that fills my heart with gratitude and peace.

Thanks again for everything. No words can really express how much we appreciate all that you did.

The more I go to other funerals I have discovered how much Buhrig has put so much detail and class into their funerals...Starting with how they treat the families with patience and love to going above and beyond with everything. Personal touches that the family doesn't realize they even mentioned are included in touching ways. I am so thankful for Buhrig.

Dear Mr. Buhrig,

I would like to take the time to thank the following members of your staff: Liz Dolan, Dan Maguire, Ken Schaffer, and Angelo Romero. These staff members assisted Indiantown Gap National Cemetery, on May 7, 2019, while helping the cemetery staff park two services simultaneously, both of which were extremely large. We appreciate the cooperation and assistance on this day, which alleviated confusion and ultimately afforded each of the families the time for an appropriate service.

I want to thank you for coming to Cincinnati for my Aunt Shirley. I have attended numerous funerals and I have never experienced a service or caring for the family as your team gave. I wish you were available in the Cincinnati area. I feel that your program needs to be taught to all funeral home personnel.

Today I spent time at the Myers/Buhrig Funeral Home & Crematory discussing a pre-paid benefit plan that I had purchased in 2006. I was capativated by the professionalism, compassion, and humor of Bob Buhrig during our two hour discussion. Never once did he move me along with impatience or frustration during our question and answer time. My comfort and overall feeling when I departed was one of thankfulness and peace. Talking about arrangements for one's death when you are alive has a tendency to make one somewhat uncomfortable, however none of that took place during my time at the funeral home. If you are nervous about "the talk", don't be.....Bob and Missy made the time there actually fun....and I mean that with all of the respect that both Bob and Missy, and the entire process deserves. I am extremely thankful to both of you...............Thank you............Bob Bradshaw

During this most difficult time in the sudden loss of our loved one, Buhrig helped us each and every step of the way in easing our fears through this journey. The compassion and attention to detail was absolutely amazing. Your personal touches were wonderful and greatly appreciated. You and your staff helped give us a sense of peace in the loss of my father. There are no words to express the level of gratitude we have as a family for your services.

Thank you to the entire staff at Buhrig for arranging everything for my father's funeral. My father's passing was completely unexpected and our family was devastated but Buhrig help us arrange everything and was with us through the entire process. Often people say a funeral is a celebration of life and I found that difficult to believe due to grieving the loss of my father. However, experiencing my father's funeral, Buhrig did make me feel like it was a celebration of his life. Everyone that attended my father's funeral and even the members of the church asked about Buhrig and indicated how special they made the day and how professional the entire team was throughout the day. I would highly recommend Buhrig to everyone as they are simply outstanding.

Dear Liz, Bob , Kirk and All,

I never thought this whole grieving process would be so difficult! I want to thank you for all the wonderful advise you've given me. I remember, "do not make any major decisions for 6 months!" My mind has certainly created some -- but no action taken yet.

I think the wonderful booklets by Doug Manning help me so much. I've experienced all the scenarios he mentions and am glad to learn it's okay to feel those emotions! Thank you for sending those and I am looking forward to the next one. Once of my favorite quotes he mentions is, "Tears are memories in motion!"

Just want to thank you again and again for always being there and for the emotional support you share!

Thank you Bob and staff for being kind, thoughtful, and resourceful. My husband was proud of his Irish heritage and you arranged a funeral that exceeded our expectations. You payed attention to details and anticipated needs. My husband would have been so pleased with everything, including the bagpipes, Irish wake, music, and the interment at Indiantown Gap National Cemetery. I was impressed with how you worked in a professional way; yet, personal attention was given from the time we met until all was completed. Everyone at the Buhrig Funeral Home & Crematory did an excellent job and the family highly recommends their services.

Dorcas McVay
March 23, 2019

These thoughts may seem overdue to some going through the loss of their parents, however I am at a new point, a healthy point , in the grieving process that enables me to embrace happy and kind memories, I am however woefully tardy in expressing my unconditional gratitude and kudos to Bob Buhrig and all of the other incredible individuals he has made a part of his staff, they project the image of family rather than a business, I suffered the loss of my Parents with a blessed multi year reprieve between passings and just when I thought Bob could not possibly up his game for the second set of arrangements I was taken aback with how he and his work family assisted and comforted my entire family, I would also like to highly recommend anyone suffering the loss of loved ones to sign up for the Daily Grief Support e-mails offered at Myers Buhrig, I have received them everyday since June of 2018 and will continue to do so as long as they will have me, these messages are cathartic and healing.

Thank You To All, Claude and Rita had a Glorious Send Off

She immediately accepted and honored our Mom's and our wishes, and went above and beyond in helping us with some of the necessary documentation. I would absolutely recommend Buhrig Funeral Home & Crematory. They are kind, compassionate, and caring, and they listen to you and your wishes.

When Delinda's mother passed away, we had the opportunity to work with Bob. He was extremely professional and understanding of or needs. He worked with us to transport Delinda's mother back to Florida. Bob did an excellent job for us. He even priced out several options for services we needed and was able to save us nearly $4000 by finding a private funeral home to handle all the details in Florida over the funeral home we expected to use there. Buhrig Funeral Home & Crematory did an excellent job. We highly recommend their services.

When our 35-year-old son died suddenly, we were faced with the sudden, unchartered responsibility of choosing a funeral home. We met with Bob and his staff the day after our son's death with very raw emotions. The staff was so supportive and anticipated our every need as we talked and cried through planning our son's service. Bob never once referred to our son as "the body" or "his ashes." He always referred to him by his first name-it sounds so simple, but it was very profound and comforting to me. We are thankful to all the staff who cared for us and helped us get through one of the hardest experiences we have ever been through.

This is the first funeral I have had to arrange and in my time of sadness and uncertainty I was given such wonderful compassionate care. Bob has found his calling. A wonderful man that understands and makes you feel so cared for. His gentleness was not only displayed to me and my family, but also to my dad whom we passed on. He takes very good care of our loved ones who we entrust to a funeral home. Bob and his staff were wonderful. Thank you is not enough.

Susan Reyna

This funeral home is more than a step above any funeral home I've even seen. It is an experience in compassion, service, and attention to the slightest detail that is second to none. It puts some of the more elite funeral homes in New York , Philadelphia, and Chicago to shame. I was beyond surprised and delighted, I was truly impressed.

Loosing a loved one is very hard and to loose a mother is that much tougher. I am so glad that Bob Buhrig and his staff handled the funeral services for my mother. Being a veteran I was impressed how the whole organization handled the day with military precision. That was so important. Everything was well organized and carried out perfectly. The family had no concerns other than saying their goodbyes. Through every part of the day there was a staff member front and center waiting and able to take care of any and every need. Well done Bob! I thank you and each one of your staff for all that you did for us on this day. May God bless you all for your concern and your service to others in a most difficult time. Well done!

When my husband passed away very unexpectedly, I did not have a funeral home in mind. I was referred to Myers Buhrig by a friend, and I am so very glad that I chose them. Bob and Liz were absolutely the best people to work with. They were kind, tender, helpful and very thoughtful with each of their suggestions and directions. The rest of the funeral home staff were also very professional and wonderful to work with. A lot of small details were paid attention to, and my family and I thank them for this. They have made a very painful experience be as easy as possible. The personal attention to myself and three daughters were very much appreciated. I received many positive comments about how well the funeral went during the course of the day, thanks for Liz and her co-workers. I would not hesitate at all to highly recommend everyone who works here. We will never forget all of the kindness and care we received from Bob, Liz and others. A heartfelt thank you.

On behalf of the family I would like to thank Bob and his staff for the excellent service received regarding our mother Elsie's funeral. Every detail was explained upfront including cost and possible options. The funeral not only met but exceeded our expectations and would have made mom smile. Having planned and attended many funerals over the years, this service stands out because of the lightheartedness (as we requested) but dignified manner in which it was carried out. I highly recommend Buhrig Funeral Home & Crematory. Thank You for everything.

Sometimes it's hard to express your feelings when everything goes well. That was the case for the services of my husband. Everyone did their job perfectly and seamlessly so I could spend time with my family and friends. I had no worry about the details of the funeral that was held in two states. My mind was at ease just as Bob had promised. I would absolutely recommend the services of Buhrig Funeral Home & Crematory without reservation. Sending thanks from our family.

The rest of the family was also most impressed with the quality of care and service provided. You met and exceeded all our expectations and it was evident that your care and compassion for the family was first and foremost in your thoughts and actions. You simply were outstanding in every way. You made a very difficult circumstance bearable. Thank you for all you have done for our family. Please know it is sincerely appreciated.

May the Lord continue to bless you and your team for the great job and service you provided us and will continue to provide for others. Thank you again!

Dear Liz,

This extra-special thank-you note sent to you today holds more appreciation than any words can say...for you're among the nicest people I have ever known, and you'll never be forgotten for the thoughtfulness you've shown.

Thank you for serving us so well before, during and after my mother's funeral. While nothing could make the process easy, you made it manageable and led us with grace and compassion thru the process.

With much appreciation,

Dear Bob, Missy and staff,

With the "royal" treatment you have given us, you qualify to be called "a friend." I appreciate more than you could know that you went above and beyond in providing the very best services, even with my being so detail-oriented. Taking time from your very busy schedule to do the "Order of Service" folder was the icing on the cake.

May God richly Bless all of you!

Dear Missy,

Thank you for sending the death certificates from Vital Records to me. Myers - Buhrig has just been over and above anyone I have ever worked with in the business world.

This note has been so late in coming to you due to health issues. Ever since George's demise I have had problems and am even now recovering from emergency surgery.

I just want to thank everyone for the excellent service they gave to our family. For the blanket, candle, delivery of flowers, placement of pictues and memorabilia, help with serving food at church, and just being there for every little detail.

The dear lady, Ms. McCreary I believe, was superb in helping me with getting my insurance benefits in order quickly and efficiently.

Please let everyone at Myers - Buhrig know now much I appreciate each one and the service they provided.

With blessings always,

Mr. Buhrig,
Your attention to the young man during Jim Griffith's casket lowering was the nicest thing I've seen anyone do in a long time. He was obviously interested in the mechanism and you took time to explain it and let him partake in the process. You made a lifetime memory for him today. We hope it will be a lifetime memory for you as well.

Dear Mr. Buhrig and Staff,

On Thursday we joined your family as we said goodbye to one of ours. I wanted to take a moment to thank you and your staff for making my kids first funeral a loving and involved one. My biggest fear was traumatizing them like I was at my first funeral. You and your family helped to erase my fears and ease my children's pain. I will forever be grateful.

Thank you for your wonderful care during the loss of our mom. This was our third phenomenal experience with Myers-Buhrig. The staff is amazing and so wonderful and we can't say enough great things about Bob and Liz. Every detail was provided for during the services and reception. There was no stress or worry.
Thank you again!

Bob and Liz,
You and your team did a phenomenal job attending to every detail before, during and after the lovely service for my mom, Helen Corman. You guided my sisters and me through an unfamiliar process with grace and calm in what felt like a storm and you turned our loving memories into a beautiful memorial. I want to thank you for your thoughtfulness and your kindness and especially for making us smile through the tears.
Warmest regards,

Liz & Bob,

Words cannot describe how "Thankful" we are for the care, compassion, and support you gave us. Especially when our situation was finding a cremation service for our "very special" golden retriever Ella. In one week we went from celebrating our furry family members 15th birthday, to reaching out to Myers-Buhrig to see about care. I spoke to Liz, and she without hesitation said they would take exceptional care of our Ella...and they did. From the paw print on paper & baked clay, to the hair clippings, the Rainbow Bridge poem, along with the beautiful wooden box. She will be forever in our lives and memories. Bob & Liz genuinely care about every family they encounter, no matter what the request. In our case, Bob was out of town, and called me personally to reinforce the care they will be providing our Ella. You are a "5 Star" service, and we would "Highly" recommend you. Thank you both, and your team for all you do for families, and our community. May God continue to bless you both...

Dear Bob,
Thank you for the incredible care you have provided me and my family during this most difficult time. The patience, guidance and support your funeral home has offered has brought us much peace as we say goodbye to Bill. Please know our family has appreciated all of your efforts!

Bob, Liz & Team,

Thank you so much for helping our family through this very difficult time and making this sorrowful time into a memory that we will never forget and always cherish. While it was difficult to lose Mom & Dad, there was something special about seeing them together and they both looked wonderful.

The Buhrig Team did an amazing job from the planning stage through the viewing and the service. The staff who served at the luncheon did a superb job and even held a baby while the mother was tending to other small children.

Thank you again for helping us through this difficult time.

Liz, Bob, and staff,
Thank you so much for your care and compassion during our difficult time of loss. You held our hand and listened. That meant so much. Your attention to all of the small details was just amazing. The funeral service began the process of healing for us. Your entire staff made us feel at ease through this painful process. We greatly appreciate the way things were handled. Once again, thank you.

Dear Bob & Liz,

I Just want to sincerely thank you for your continuing care for me and my family during our year of grief. Your booklets that you faithfully sent were a source of comfort. I wish we had known of them before to use as a source of comfort for others because its hard to find words of comfort at a time like this.

I do miss my dear husband and now know what grief is like even after a year. Thank you again for all the kind and considerate things you and your staff have meant to us.

Just as there are no words that can soothe our pain from the sudden loss of our vibrant son and brother, Jeffrey, there are none to adequately express our appreciation for your above and beyond services. When we couldn't even organize our thoughts, Bob so compassionately walked us through the necessary preparations that yielded the most beautiful service we could have possibly had for our son Jeffrey. We would recommend Buhrig Funeral Home and Crematory to any one no matter where their loved one passed. Your family owned funeral home/crematory clearly knows how to respond to the needs of the family with perfection and professionalism and endless empathy.

Just when things were going so well in our lives with both of our sons doing well and one engaged to be married, tragedy struck as our older son, Nick, died at the age of 29 in a drowning accident. Nothing could have prepared us for this sudden and devastating loss. We dreaded going to meet with the funeral home to make preparations. From the moment we walked into Myers - Buhrig Funeral Home & Crematory, we were treated with compassion and kindness from all of the staff we encountered. Bob, Liz and Tim in particular were so kind to us and our relatives who came with us that day to make plans. Liz took her time carefully going over all of our options, respecting all of our thoughts, making helpful suggestions, and giving us time when we just couldn’t think clearly. At no time did we ever think that there was a push for them to sell us anything that we did not want or need. Though it was a difficult day, we left feeling some comfort knowing that we had planned a loving tribute to our son. Everything from the family visitation to the memorial service at our church was handled fluidly and professionally by all of the staff at Myers - Buhrig. They even offered and set up some of their pop up canopies in our yard for our luncheon after the service, due to the weather. Most impressive is that long after the final bill was paid to them, their wonderful service and support has continued, as they genuinely care about how their clients are doing. They have continued to help us along our journey with helpful advice and their vast knowledge of area resources. We cannot say enough positive things about the compassionate care that our family has received from Myers - Buhrig Funeral Home & Crematory.

After our recent sudden and tragic loss, we had little clue as to what to expect from funeral homes in the area. We needed one pronto and one that would take care of virtually everything. We are deeply indebted to you and your staff for taking care of everything and doing so with deepest compassion. On December 8, 2017, the late John Harhi had a beautiful , well attended funeral which greatly uplifted our spirits. Please show your staff this letter of gratitude for your and their services. Thanks again for helping us in our time of need. Your organization is a shining example for helping those in need.

Writing this belated note to thank you for your services to our family on the death of our mother, Edith. We all felt that your services were caring and professional. We appreciated that you gave us direction but still allowed us to make decisions. It was a good time as we sat around that table and gave info and made decisions about mother's service. And the coffee was great! You gave great directions at the viewing and funeral service. And we appreciated how you took time to explain the procedures as we spent our last minutes with our mother before the casket was closed. And thank you for giving us an option at the graveside to have the casket lowered into the ground in our presence. That was meaningful to us. The booklet on "The Pain of Grief" that you sent all of us was so helpful. We all thought it was meaningful.

PS - Dori thanks you for the live streaming!

When I first spoke to Bob Buhrig on the day Mom passed, Bob was very compassionate and caring. Bob told me that, if permitted, he would handle every aspect of Mom's service unless there were things that we would consider "a labor of love" and do ourselves. Long story short, Bob and his team did a magnificent job even down to helping to serve our guests at the reception at OUR church. Bob and his team were very organized, very professional and very helpful from the first day we spoke. My family and I would not even consider using anyone else in the future.

Our family wants to express our thanks to all of you this holiday season. We thank you for the compassion and excellent service you provided to our family during the loss of our dear father. We have been truly blessed with all of the guidance you have provided. Your staff has been so very helpful and professional, and we appreciate all that you have done for our family. Happy Holidays to all of you. Blessings to each of you

The C. Family

Dear Bob – I wanted to thank you again for everything you did to help my family and I deal with the death of our dad. It's been a month today, and while it's been rough, especially thanks to the holidays, everything that you did to honor our dad has made it so much easier to bear. It is true that a funeral is not for the deceased, but for those left behind; Bob, Liz, and everyone else truly helped us deal with Dad's passing a little easier. The small touches that I didn't expect, having my children be part of the procession for instance, made the service even more meaningful. I will never forget what you did for us. You are truly in the right business.

Michelle and Shawn M.

Bob & Staff – Thank you so much for everything you did after the passing of our mom . . . It was fantastic how you listened to our thoughts and concerns, and tailored a package for us that was dignified and affordable. We especially appreciated the attention to detail with every step of the process. Everything that was done was greatly and sincerely appreciated by the entire family.

Vance M.

Dear Bob,

Words cannot express my gratitude to you and your entire team for the beautiful memorial service you provided for my mom . . .

From our initial meeting, you were so compassionate, kind, and respectful to all of us, especially my dad, who was just heartbroken. That means so much and gave me great comfort.

You guided us through the entire planning process and presented and explained all options available without pressuring us into making a snap decision about something so important to us. I truly appreciate your patience with us. Even though this was one of the most difficult times in my life, you and your team made every effort to comfort us.

Thank you so much for the beautifully written obituary as well as all the small touches, i.e. the dark chocolates, lunch at the diner, coordinating with Scottie at the (cemetery), and the roses; just everything meant so much. It was truly lovely.

Please extend a very special thank you to George Spangler. He did an outstanding job conveying to all just how special my mom was to everyone whose life she touched. Again, my sincere thanks to you, Bob, and to your entire team. You are true professionals. --- Sincerely,

Dawn B.

Dear Bob,

I just have to tell how much I appreciated being able to attend my brother's funeral via my computer. Thank you so much for taking the camera up to the casket and around the room for me, and for telling people I was there and they could say "hi" to me. I was sorry I could not make it to PA, but I feel like I didn't miss it. Everything looked beautiful and I enjoyed the service, especially Holly's "Top 10" concerning her dad. --- Thank you so much c

Vicki B.

I have been in ministry for 27 years, and have been a part of many funerals. Recently, my mother passed away, and my family decided to use Myers – Buhrig Funeral Home to handle her burial. After our first meeting, I could tell that Myers - Buhrig was unlike any organization that I have ever dealt with. Bob Buhrig – the owner - first expressed great compassion for our loss, and made it clear that their position was one of helping us, not telling us what to do. Bob was very patient with us as we took our time in making decisions. The funeral was one that I will never forget. The staff’s attention to detail was amazing. They provided accessories (a blanket, picture, & candle) memorializing my mother at no additional cost. There was cold water which was provided while we greeted visitors during the viewing time. Flowers were placed in my mother’s casket representing her children and grandchildren. Everything that Bob and his staff did sought to give honor to my mother, and give us comfort as we grieved. During the reception, Bob himself helped clear tables and serve drinks to our guests. Funerals are hard enough, when the family is forced to say goodbye to a loved one. Yet, seeing Bob and his staff serve us in our moment of grief was a huge blessing.

Thank you, Bob,and all of your staff for easing our burden on an extremely difficult day. All of you went above and beyond what is normally expected, and we will never forget what you did for us. May God bless you, your staff, & your business. --- With sincere thanks

Andy M. (Local Associate Pastor)

Dear Bob,

Thank you for being so kind during this time. You will never know how much I appreciated all of your help. I never truly imagined I would have had to make the decisions I made. You helped me every step of the way. The service was absolutely lovely. I want you to know my mother would be very proud of how she was remembered by everyone who loved her. Thank you again for everything.

Carol & Bill S.

Dear Bob, Erica, & staff at Myers – Buhrig (Funeral Home & Crematory):

From the bottom of my heart, and on behalf of my dad & family, thank you so very much for the tremendous services you provided during the most difficult time any of us has ever faced.

The sensitivity, compassion, and professionalism you showed was very deeply appreciated. I felt as though you treated my mother’s care in the same manner as you would give your own. You were able to turn back the hands of time and restore my mother to a time before Alzheimer’s Disease took its toll. You put her at rest and peace, and in turn, put all of us at peace as well.

Yes, we have a long process of grieving ahead, but you helped us truly celebrate a beautiful life. With your assistance we were able to honor a beautiful life and express our deep, eternal love for my mother.

Our relationship with all of you throughout this process was above and beyond any expectations we could have had. Again, thank you for all you have done. --- Sincerely

Kathy K., Bob M. & Family

Just wanted to let you know how wonderful it was to be able to participate and communicate with family at my aunt's service. What a great service you provide. My Mother is 92 and also (my aunt's) older sister. She was not up to traveling to Pennsylvania, so you have no idea how much this meant to her. It was a beautiful service and the tribute to my aunt was outstanding. Last, a big thank you to Bob, who finally helped me to get on the phone so we could talk to relatives and friends. Thank you so much

Jeanette F.

Dear Bob, I’ll bet you’ve received one of these appreciation cards before . . . The note of appreciation is truly due . . . because I can’t thank you enough for the great job that you and your staff did for (my husband’s) funeral! Every aspect of the planning and execution was top notch. I couldn’t believe how many people commented about the courtesy and caring manner of you and your staff! My daughter-in-law was astounded at the time and explanations that you gave to the 9-year-old grandchildren/twins. I felt completely supported, and I appreciated your patience as I had several second thoughts . . . I will certainly recommend Myers - Buhrig (Funeral Home & Crematory) to anyone I know who has funeral needs. God bless you for the “ministry” that you are doing for families in need!

Karen W.

Bob & Staff – Thank you so much for the beautiful service you did for my mom. We were very pleased and have received so many compliments from those there. It was wonderful.

Debbie L. & Family

Dear Bob,

Thank you for taking such good care of my mom. It seems a little strange to write this card and thank someone for doing their job well, but on the other hand, life and death events are the hallmarks of life. My mom was the most amazing woman ever. Thank you for creating the funeral she wanted for herself. She looked stunning. Your spirit is just so right for the work you do. Your whole persona instills calmness, comfort, and competence to those you work with. I wish you every personal and professional success. I just pray it is a long time until we see each other again! My husband and my children join me in offering our heartfelt thanks for a beautiful farewell to a graceful woman, our mom and gram. --- Sincerely,

Betsy L.

Bob and Liz, and staff at Myers - Buhrig (Funeral Home & Crematory),

Thank you for helping us through such a difficult time. The way you handled every last detail of my dad’s funeral couldn’t have been better. What was so comforting was the way you took care of us in our time of need. You all have a gift . . . the gift of compassion, and it will never be forgotten! --- Sincerely,

Helen V.

On June 10, 2015, my husband passed away, and the next day, my family and I went to Myers - Buhrig to make arrangements for a memorial service. We met with Bob Buhrig, the Director, and immediately found him to be warm and comforting. He made so many wonderful suggestions and helped us with every detail, from the largest to the smallest. The memorial service, which was held at the Funeral Home, was more than we could have hoped for. The room was perfectly arranged, and all of my husband's memorabilia was beautifully displayed. We had a luncheon next door at the Warm Hearts Café - - Bob and his staff arranged that, as well, and it, too, was perfect. We had dreaded this day, but after all was over, we left with a feeling of peacefulness, and a sense of a pathway to healing.

Mary S.

Losing my mother was so hard for me, and still is, but everyone at Myers-Buhrig Funeral Home and Crematory was very comforting and made me feel better and went out of their way to make every part of the whole experience of planning the viewing and funeral special for my mom. I never expected the kind of care and detail that Bob made sure to give me and my family and in a very timely manner as well. He always made sure all of us had anything we needed and made the whole process easier, as he took over everything because we allowed him to, and wanted him to, during this very hard time for us, but also allowed us to make it the way we wanted it to be.

Bob is so talented at being a funeral director and truly made sure to honor my mom in the way we wanted her to be. Every part of the viewing, service, reception and burial was professional and beautiful. Thank you everyone at Myers-Buhrig for all of your hard work, and for taking such good care of me and my family, and for honoring my mom in the way she deserves to be. It's hard to put into words how amazing my family and I were treated by everyone at Myers-Buhrig Funeral Home and Crematory. It really was such an awesome experience for all of us. Bob has a way of making planning a funeral fun and helped take our minds off the sadness of the loss of our mother. They really did walk with us in grief. God bless!

Danielle L.

Please extend my sincere thanks to everyone at the funeral home who worked so hard at providing such a great “send-off” for my husband – from the very careful planning, the wonderful array of products we could have, the limo service, the beautiful celebration of life, with all the arrangements taken care of for us, the actual burial and all the “behind the scenes” we did not see but added to the easy, warm, good feeling during this hard time to the very gracious attitudes of everyone with whom we dealt. Thank you so much for all and to all.

Louann N.

Bob, I want to thank you and your staff for all the comfort and support my family and I were given after (my nephew’s) passing. Your kindness, patience, and compassion helped more than words can express. I felt as if you were a friend helping us through this time. From minor to major details and all the things you helped with throughout that stressful time, I am so grateful and appreciative. Thank you for making the celebration of (my nephew’s) life, and our farewell to him, go so smoothly. I know healing will take time, but these will be added memories that honor (my nephew). Kind regards,

Jodie W.

Hello Bob and the staff at MB;

I looked at your website and I know that you are extremely busy but I didn’t want you to think that we were not extremely appreciative of the way you handled everything from start to finish with my brother's death. From the beginning everyone was kind, caring, gracious and patient and we needed that, for sure. Thank you to your team for such professional yet wonderful care and understanding and for the great work at the service. --- Sincerely,

Carole B.

Dear Bob, Thank you for all the help you and your staff gave us during our difficult time. Your thoughtfulness, patience, and guidance was greatly appreciated. --- May God Bless -

Shirley H.

Bob, Thanks for your guidance and support during this difficult process. I know it was a relief to my mom and family to have you at the helm and helping us every step of the way. --- Thanks

Brett K.

Dear Bob, Our family wants to express our thanks and gratitude for your loving kindness and respect for the care of our beloved mother. We can’t thank you enough for making this difficult journey a little easier, knowing she was in your hands. Thank you again for your special gift, it really is “a calling” to be a funeral director. Blessings to you and yours. --- Sincerely,

The W. Family (Bonnie, Bob, Brenda, Benita, & Bernice)

Bob, On behalf of my family, thank you for providing such a beautiful “goodbye” for (my father-in-law) last Monday. My brother and I also appreciated that we could be involved in the “closing the casket” process. It was an unexpected honor. There is nothing I would have changed – and feel – in my heart – that my husband, (his son), would have agreed. Your kindness and warmth will be remembered – and also the popcorn! What a wonderful surprise! Warmest thanks to you and your wonderful staff. --- Fondly

Tamm K.

Dear Mr. Buhrig,

Having just finished the process of pre-need planning for our funerals with you, we wish to thank you very much for the high quality of service you provided to us.

As senior citizens we wanted the peace of mind which comes with the pre-need planning of our funerals. We found you to be very professional with a deep understanding of all facets entailed in pre-need planning. After several helpful and satisfying meetings with you we developed a complete plan for our funerals which meets all our needs.

In our meetings with you we learned how comprehensive your firm is in the array of services and products you provide. Your explanation of the many options you make available was offered without any pressure to choose the more expensive options. Your explanation of how your prices were calculated was clear and very helpful. Your guidance on how to protect our savings set aside for our funerals was especially important to us.

After signing our separate contracts with you, we felt we were dealing with a friend who cared about us. Thanks again for your fine service to us.

Sincerely, Margaret & John B.

Greetings Bob, I want to thank you so very much for everything you and your staff did for the family. Your professionalism and attention to detail is unmatched. The services you and your staff provided were not just a service, but an experience. Together it all added to enhance the funeral service where healing can truly begin. May God bless each and every one of you.

Pastor Bob B.

Dear Bob, Erica and Liz,

I want to thank you for a very informative meeting.

Bob, you were so professional and well-prepared, so deeply aware of the details and legalities involved in your business, yet you stopped and showed respect to individuals in the audience by thoroughly and good-naturedly answering their questions. I liked that a lot because it tells me that you would know what you are doing as a funeral director, but would find it very important to listen and meet individual’s needs, placing a customer’s needs first.

Liz was amazing with her technological abilities. I don’t think the meeting could have gone any smoother than it did. Thanks, Liz.

Anni and I really liked Erica. Real, transparent, compassionate…a kind and gentle human being.

I really appreciate all of you doing what you did and being willing to give up your evening at the end of your “workday”.

I am quite willing to recommend your services to anyone that asks.


Paul G. (Coordinator Camp Hill Environmental Club)

I just wanted to pass along my thanks for providing a wonderful service for (my friend's wife) recently. (He) is a very close friend of mine and he has gone through a lot over the years being a care giver. Your service provided him the closure that he needed.

I would like to offer my special thanks to Harry Horne who is a mutual friend of (ours). For a very long time, (our friend) was not sure of what services to have or where to go. (He) had actually planned on a service at a different provider in the area. As we discussed the possible plans we called upon Harry to give us some sound advice and he was able to do that. Harry made time for us and fielded some basic questions. We were very impressed with the information Harry provided us and this convinced our friend that your business seemed to fit what he was looking for.

Please convey our thanks to Harry and all of your staff for the great service you provided. It was the best any family could have wanted for their loved one.

Regards, Curt F.

Last Monday and Tuesday were the saddest days of our lives. We had to say goodbye to the greatest man we have ever known. Then into our lives walked Mr. Buhrig and his staff. The first comfort we had was when Bob introduced himself. You see, we all knew that we could always count on a man named BOB! Between “our” Bob’s pre-arrangements and our new friend Bob’s experience and comforting personality we had little to do or think about.

I was given credit by many for writing our father’s obituary, but I quickly pointed out that all we did was answer some questions and the beautiful obituary was written by Bob and his staff. We cannot say enough about Bob and his staff, but I will try. Quite simply, you cannot go wrong with Myers-Buhrig Funeral Home and Crematory. From the beautiful renovations to the helpful staff, Bob kept us informed every step of the way and did not overload us with information. He seemed to know what we were going through and what we could handle.

Everyone deals with grief differently. Our way was the celebration of Dad’s life and humor because we know that is how Dad lived his life. Bob understood that immediately and made us feel we could count on him for anything, and we did. We had time issues and special requests that Bob handled quickly and expertly. Our very large family has always gone to Myers, but from now on, we will think of it as Buhrig’s. Again Bob, Thank you for everything you have done to ease our way and our Dad’s!

Betsy, Mike, Rick, John & Jeff
