What Our Families Are Saying

I cannot express how grateful my family and I are for the kindness and caring by all the folks at Buhrig. It was unanimous that you all surpassed expectations for our Celebration of Life for Charlie aka Pop. It was truly perfect.....so much attention to every detail. The setting and ambience were exactly what I had in mind. And the delicious luncheon next door was again perfect as we continued uninterrupted our ‘celebration’. My heartfelt thanks for giving me the warm loving memory of my husband and all our good times with family and friends.....this was exactly what he wanted.

To Bob and the whole team:
Thank you very much for your support of my family when my dad passed away over Labor Day weekend. From the first two staff who arrived at our house down to the lunch reception, everyone was helpful and caring during one of the most difficult days of our lives. Every detail was taken in to consideration so we could just be with our family and friends.
Sincerely,
Kimberly Martz

The entire Buhrig team showed caring professionalism in every area after the loss of mom, every detail was taken care of...right down to offering cold drinking water at a very warm gravesite! Having done prepaid planning was also a blessing. A special heartfelt thank you to Bob in the loving way he involved younger family members to share in the final casket closing of their Grandma. His explanations of each movement answered unspoken questions and allayed fears in the children. That kindness meant a lot. (Snickerdoodle cookies will never be the same for Bob again!)

Bob, Halie, Melissa, Kirk, and the rest of the Buhrig staff:

Everyone on your staff was professional, caring, compassionate, and helpful in the handling of my mother’s, Bernice Eash, final arrangements. Knowing our loved one was in your caring hands gave me great comfort during some of the most difficult days of my life. You made what is a very painful and difficult process seamless with your continued kindness and attention to detail. I can’t thank you enough for your professionalism doing everything possible to help my family through the entire process. Bob, you constantly checked on my siblings and me to see if there was anything you or your staff could do for us the day of the service. I had a few family members come to me and express their thoughts and appreciation about your staff as well. I will recommend Buhrig to anyone looking for a funeral director to make final arrangements.

In God’s Love,

In general, customer service today is not what it should be. However, my experience with Buhrig for my Husband's memorial was a true 5 star class act. They handled everything for me, it was seamless, perfect in every way and the staff is professional and helpful. Buhrig's Gathering Place was also a wonderful, warm experience for family and friends, the food was excellent, and the atmosphere was calm and inviting.

I would like to thank Buhrig funeral home for the wonderful care of my wife Elizabeth Gora during this trying time of her passing. Buhrig funeral home and their staff provided the professional and loving care that we needed at this time. I can’t imagine taking this journey without them in control I would like to thank the staff for all that they have done during this celebration of Elizabeth’s life.
Thanks again

Hi Kirk and Staff,

Thank you all for your service at my father's, Tony Corbe, funeral. Everyone was kind, patient and respectful to me and my family throughout the church ceremony, lunch and cemetery service.

I want to thank Dick Smith for his genuine kindness and patience when caring for my dad's remains from nursing home to funeral home.

Kirk, please express my thanks and gratitude to all staff that assisted, including the hearse driver, Carol. And thank you for planting a tree in memory of Tony - much appreciated.

You all have been a blessing to me.
With gratitude, Nancy.

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,

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,

Denise

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.

Love,

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,

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.

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.

Respectfully,
Jennifer Grose

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.

Bob,

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,
Bobbie

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

Wanted to take a moment, again, to tell you how very grateful I am for the care and compassion you showed to me on Sunday regarding the passing of my mother. As you know, we would have been making an unnecessary trip to GA, as well as needless expense and frustration. Your guidance was most helpful, and your intervention timely and appreciated. Thank you, again, and God bless.

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.

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.

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.

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.

All of the Syracuse fans here in Charlotte have such heavy hearts. Linda took such good care of us at Applebees. Linda, you are in our hearts forever my friend.

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.

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.

Sincerely Sharron and sons

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.

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,
Susan Wong

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.

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.

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.

Sincerely,
John & Patricia

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.
THANK YOU , Bob

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,

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.

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.

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.

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.
