I have only positive things to say about my experience with Matthew Brand and J.S Burkholder. Matthew was incredibly kind and genuine throughout the entire process of taking care of Ruth M Vargo. Matthew was professional and went above and beyond to be helpful. He took our wishes very seriously and put in all the effort to make sure it all went smoothly with such short notice. He handled all of the details from the beginning to the end. He allowed us to focus on our grief. I feel very fortunate to have had his help during this very difficult time.

Matthew was so considerate and helpful to our family. This was our first experience with cremation, now that I see all the work involved, the cost seems reasonable. Our family history with Burkholder's goes back to the 1930's. Matt also helped emotionally when making plans.

My mother looked absolutely beautiful! Like a movie star! and she had gone through so much towards the end. I should not have worried because her appearance, the service, the minister, surpassed my expectations, especially in these rough times with COVID. Thank everyone from our hearts for a job well done!

We used J.S. Burkholder Funeral Home, Inc. for our young daughter. Their attention to detail, concern, love, and support during such a difficult time made the entire process extremely smooth. Any request or question presented, was handled with no problems. We never hear the words "No" or "We can't do that". Matthew Brand walked us through the entire process, was available whenever we called, and was with us at the viewing and the burial. Top notch service! Highly, Highly, Highly recommend!

Matthew and the entire staff has been wonderful! It was so comforting to me and my family to have someone like Matthew guide us through arranging my grandmothers funeral. He always responded to any questions or concerns me and my family had very quickly. I could tell he truly cares about his clients and giving them a dignified celebration of life no matter what the financial circumstances are.

We called after searching online, seeking the best care. After speaking with the staff Dee and Matthew the Director, we made our decision to choose your home. We will always be grateful for the way our family was treated. Matthew and his son and the staff Dee went above and beyond to help us in the hardest times of our lives with so much compassion.
