Thank you so much for everything you did for me and my family. I wasn't able to articulate it at the time, but her ceremony was everything I wanted for Aly. You went above any expectations I had, and have nothing but good memories of that day. The balloon release helped with beginning my grief journey and I truly felt you took care of us as if Aly was apart of your family. Thank you so much, I am forever grateful.

Kara Gerken

Hello Ryan: Wanted to thank you again for your professionalism in the handling of my father. There are many relatives who are to sick, or getting up in age to make the trip from around the country. They are all grateful about being able to view the services online. You are doing a great job of using all of the technology available since in todays society, people are all over the country and beyond and are not able to attend. I know this is my first time of hearing about webcast services. Along with the website itself, is really showing the love you have for your profession. Best move you ever did when you left the corporate style. Wishing you continued great success.

Mr. & Mrs. Roy & Laura Adcock & family.

Appreciate your web site; so easy to negotiation and handy for out of state folks to check in.
Keep up what you're doing in service to the community & The Lord.

Ryan & Stephanie, Henry County and the surrounding area were blessed the day you started Zachrich Funeral Home. The two of you are amazing.

Hello. You took care of my mom, Betty Burkhart back in April 2011. I couldn't believe what a beautiful job you did from beginning to end. I said thank you and told you then wow... You are amazing. Well, December 29 we lost my husbands mom, up here in Alpena, MI. I tried not to compare the services... There was NO comparision! Every last detail you put into my mom is even more appreciated. God knew what he was doing by putting You in this tough job. Keep it up kiddo! May God bless you and your family!

Dear Ryan, Thank you for the excellent job you did in getting Paul ready for viewing. Everything was arranged so well at the funeral home. I'm glad you thought of Paul's coffin being taken to the cemetery on a flat bed wagon and pulled by a John Deere tractor.

Hello.
Never have I seen a more touching ending to a service as I did with the ceremonial dove release at the graveside service for my Aunt Donnie. I will think of Donnie each time I reflect on this touching event.

Last Saturday I attended my uncle Ray Ohlrich's funeral. Although my mom (Elnora Hohenbrink) had told me about the dove ceremony I had forgot about it in the "crazy days" that surround the death of a loved one. WOW....was I blown away! That was amazing! Thank you so much for the personal touch that was extended by you and your staff. It definitely made for lasting positive memories of Uncle Ray. THANK YOU AGAIN!

Lois Ewald

Ryan and Stephanie,
Just a note to thank you for the kindness and professionalism shown to our family during the loss of Mom. She surely made the right decision when she chose Zachrich Funeral Home. And besides that you have the cutest little kids.

Thank you for making Addison's funeral so beautiful. I couldn't have asked for a better person.

Words can never tell you how thankful & grateful we are for all the help you gave Danielle & Brent. That's something no family should have to go through but you helped them so much. You are a special person & "thanks" just doesn't seem enough to say.

Wayne & Ila Wolf

I wanted to thank you again for doing a great job with my Mom's (Winifred Schwiebert) arrangements. It is so good to know that there are still people out there who truly care.

Aunt Pauline loved the dove being released as if Uncle Ray's spirit had and has been released and gone up.

I just wanted to thank you for the wonderful care you gave Aunt Janette and her family. Everything was just beautiful, especially loved the end when you said the passage from the Bible and released the dove. I have never seen this before at a funeral. It was just awesome. Thank-you!

These past few months were so difficult. It's hard to think and make decisions when your body is screaming SLEEP. At the same time, our hearts were breaking. Ryan your expertise and precision planning certainly made everything better. I don't know how you do it, but the entire experience seemed flawless. As my dad always replied - "Thanks and thanks again."
