Jackie the funeral home therapy dog

Experiencing loss and grief can be one of the most emotional, somber moments of life. Jackie, our beloved funeral home therapy dog, offers comfort to family and friends during this difficult time. Jackie’s steady and unwavering companionship helps to relieve stress and anxiety and provide a sense of consolation and calm to an otherwise stressful experience. Whether families are preparing to say their final farewells or going through the grief process after loss, Jackie is here to provide additional support and unconditional love when you need it most.

A special tribute to nurses

The Nightingale Tribute honors registered or licensed practical nurses at their memorial services. Presented by the Nurses Honor Guard, volunteer nurses who give back to their profession by providing this special ceremony for their colleagues, the tribute includes a white rose, the Nightingale lamp and a final call to duty. If your loved one was a nurse and you’d like to include The Nightingale Tribute as part of their service, please let us know.

"From the first call to the final visit, the staff was so kind and thoughtful, so easy to deal with and no pressure. Would recommend Gearhart Anoka to anyone and have used them more than once."

"With the sudden loss of my mom and not knowing where to turn or what to do, the funeral home was extremely helpful and patient with me. I'm glad I chose them from the beginning."

"Cassandra McMurray and James Archer may feel like they were just doing their jobs, but I felt a sense of not only professionalism, but heartfelt compassion for myself and my family. They both went over and above to make a very difficult situation go better than I even imagined it would. Their knowledge and wisdom was incredible. I personally am grateful for their guidance, as I had no knowledge of dealing with the task of laying my mother to rest. Thank you Cassandra and James."
