Dear Glenn and Staff,
I wanted to say Thank you and tell you what a beautiful job you all did for my mothers visitation hours, funeral, everything that went along with it. The attention to detail was remarkable. The care , concern and compassion was outstanding. We received so many compliments on how my mom and her life were portrayed. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Dear Glenn and Crew,
I have been meaning to write you a “quick” thank you note for months! The care, knowledge, compassion, and thoughtfulness you ALL showed to all of us, but mostly to my parents was amazing. Even this placard that you placed on my parents gravesite was just such a comfort! When I think back on the last ten months, I find myself reflecting on how nice and so dignified both of may parents’ wakes and funerals were—ALL the big things, but more so ALL the little things. I loved our idea of having a magic drawer at my father’s wake, and I know he would have loved that too. I will never forget how you went to Emerson Hospital to talk to my father. Nor will I forget what good care you took of my father and “his Penny,” and for your understanding of how important it was to me. Also, I’ll never forget when you came to Rivercrest to get my mother. I never even really thought twice about leaving her care up to you, I just knew she was in excellent care!
Thank you for all you and your staff did, from the bottom of my heart. I can honestly say, I would have never made it through TWO of the worst days of my life without all of you guiding us!
Fondly, S.H. and family
Thank you for your sensitivity and attention to detail in making the funeral arrangements for my Mom this week. You and the staff at Badger did an excellent job. As a family we greatly appreciated all that you did.
Sincerely, Pastor B. B.
Dear Glenn B., Glen H., Adam and the staff of Badger Funeral Home,
We cannot thank you enough for the kindness you showed to us in arranging the funeral for K.
You turned a very difficult time for us into something that brought beauty and dignity to her life. Everything from the arrangement of the flowers and photos to the wonderful keepsake blanket was just beautiful and brought us much comfort. You all do amazing and honorable work and we will remember always your compassion.
Blessings and love from the family of K.B.
We want to thank you for all you did to honor our beloved j. (and R. in 2017).
It’s amazing all the little details you do to remember J’s life. Thank you to you and your staff for your kindness.

To Badger Funeral Home,
We attended the Funeral Home Service for Evelyn S., a close family friend, in January 2109. An amazing celebration of life, it was incredibly uplifting. Evelyn and the highlights of her life were everywhere in the room, giving anyone who visited the opportunity to delight in her life lived, not her death. May more funeral homes adopt the type of services you offer/provide. Thank You
Hello Badger Team,
I wanted to take some time with such a tragic loss of my 29 year old daughter to tell you about the experience I had at Badger Funeral home. WOW! I have never in all my years experienced such professional care, guidance, love and pure from the heart the best experience I could ask for; for my daughter J. (despite it being our worst time ever!) Adam and his team could not have done a better job. I wanted the best for my daughter and I got pure perfection! From how the room was set up, how all her items were displayed to the printed material to all the guidance with the financial portion. Adam was kind, gentle, a pure perfectionist when it came to the care of my daughter, and her service and wake were exactly what we wanted; a celebration all about J. His team is A++ and I just love them for the job they did. From the slide show to the video to all our request with songs and I heard so many compliments I cannot even begin to thank you. I wanted it perfect for J., my daughter, and her sister N. and it was a perfect night all about J. As difficult as these last 8 days have been and will continue to be N. and I wanted to thank you from the bottom of our hearts. The loss of a child is beyond the worst pain anyone can imagine and for Adam and his team to show how much they indeed LOVE doing what they do- again thank you!!!

I can’t thank you enough for all that you have done for me and the beautiful graveside service you orchestrated for my father. I appreciate every little detail you had a hand in and for making the service so special and meaningful. The fact that you and Beth drove down to Philly to personally oversee everything still just blows me away. Your kindness, compassion and generosity are so appreciated!
Dear Glenn and Crew,
Thank you so much for all you and your staff did to help us plan and say good-bye to H.
With much appreciation and gratitude,
B. & Family
Good Morning Adam,
I wanted to take some time and thank you and your staff for making my Dad’s funeral so comforting and seamless. From the planning to the execution, all your suggestions and follow-through were spot on.
We could not have asked for a more perfect way to pay tribute to my Dad.
S. F. on behalf of my mom, sister and myself.
I just wanted to thank you and the staff for the great job on the services Saturday for my father-in-law John. The family very much appreciated the special touches.
Just wanted to say a quick thank you. You guys have really been great this week. You've made a difficult time easier to bear. The pictures were really above and beyond.
Much more than I was expecting.
Thanks again for all of your help and service in arranging our father's wake and final care back in April.
From the photo slide show, to flower transfers to St. Paul's, right down to the last details. We knew he was in good hands.
Please extend our gratitude to Ellen and Glen for their parts. We will gladly and eagerly recommend Badger to our friends and neighbors.
S., M., J. & A.
You are the best of the best! If there is any training course as to how to be a 5-Star funeral director, you would be the model which the curriculum would be created in order to raise up many more who exemplify EXCELLENCE.
It's nice to know that there are still people who take such pleasure in doing special things and making others feel good. Thank you very much.
Yours with much gratitude,
Words cannot express my gratitude to you and your team for the fantastic job you did with my Mom’s (and Grandmother’s) services. All of the personal touches and care that you put in to every detail turned what could be a very sad memory into a celebration of Life. On behalf of my entire family, you have our heartfelt thanks and appreciation. I am truly honored to call you a brother and a friend. Sincerely, D.G.
To Glenn and everybody at Badger-
My family's experience with Badger was unwaveringly positive. Though the circumstances were terrible, our pain was made easier to bear by a beautiful, respectful, and celebratory service. Everyone on staff is so professional yet caring and empathetic. The detail, care, and work put into my Papa's services were outstanding. Everyone I spoke to said with genuine surprise, "I've never seen a service like this before. It's beautiful." The video slide show, the blown up pictures, even down to the gardening trowel as decoration. Our family did not ask for this, it was simply just done. You truly listen to the families you speak with and it shows in your work. My Papa could be particular about details, and he would have found no flaw in the job you did with his services. He knew the value of a job well done, and would want to commend you on your hard work. So, I am doing so now. Our family could not believe the amount of care and attention put into making this not just an event of great sorrow, but the celebration of an incredible life. Thank you so much. I will remember our experience with you forever. - Abbey & Family

Dear Glen and Staff,
I’m sorry it took so long to write this note due to Mom’s medical emergencies, but we do want to thank you for your kindness while planning and conducting Dad’s wake and funeral. The military service graveside was very moving. Imagine our surprise when Mom received notification that a tree seedling had been planted as a memorial to Peter. You might be interested to know that I once worked for the U.S. Forest Service in Utah and Idaho. Dad enjoyed writing poetry and one poem was about the sequoia, a quiet witness to history and the human condition. So, although we won’t know what species of tree was planted in Dad’s name, we’ll imagine it as a sequoia that will grow for years and years, witness to many future generations.
With Warm Thanks, L, J and family
Thank you for the beautiful celebration of my Mom’s life. Taking the time to listen to my Dad’s request for my Mom’s hair to be “Just So.” The beautiful enlarged pictures, video and the apple pie table. We felt cared for when we needed it the most. I hope in some way that my Mom’s celebration gave you a chance to grieve for your Mom. The missing her and sadness does just come in waves. Thank you again, it was a beautiful tribute to my Mom.
Sincerely, L. S.

Dear Glenn and Staff,
Thank you so very much for your compassion and care. We knew from the start that Dad was in good hands. You need to know that it was the small things you did throughout the wake, funeral and burial that brought us together as a family and helped each of us begin to heal our broken hearts.
I want to thank you for walking with us through this difficult time. Your professionalism, kindness patience and understanding gave us peace. The funeral mass was perfect and we couldn’t be more pleased. Thank you again for all your efforts.
Much love, T, L, & K
Glenn and Glen,
Words cannot express my sincere gratitude for all that you did for our family during the loss of my grandmother. The “Life Celebration” was like no other funeral I have ever been to. We all felt Grandma Ester was honored and celebrated with the dignity and respect she deserved. She did so much for us; thank you for helping us say goodbye and thank you her one last time. Your professionalism and dedication was above and beyond our expectations.
