Since 2005, many of our customers have taken the time to tell us how we did each year via our Voice of the Customer program. Our star ratings and comments from families come directly from these surveys.

"If you are in the unfortunate position to have to plan a funeral, look no further. THIS is the place you want!!!! In the midst of unbearable grief and shock, the funeral director John Lilli took incredible care of us. He had the patience of a saint as my family made multiple changes and had an endless amount of questions. I have so much gratitude to him and his staff. Having to quickly plan a funeral at 9 months pregnant was the last thing I expected was going to happen to me, and I had no clue what I was doing. John guided me every step of the way. The service itself was flawless. It truly exceeded my expectations. Several of our guests came up to me and told me it was the most beautiful service they had ever attended. There is no 'stuffy' funeral feel or gross smells at this place, unlike other funeral homes I have been to. This is a beautiful, new, clean, modern-styled building. The decor that John and his staff did was absolutely beautiful and tasteful and exactly what I feel my Dad would have wanted. The Roman Catholic priest he brought in was fantastic and spoke words that were so fitting. If I could give this place 100 stars I would! Thank you so much to Kraeer-Fairchild staff, especially John Lilli."

"My Brother died suddenly & I had no local arrangements. A friend referred & said she put a phone call in to Mark & John & they handled all details in an excellent excellent manner for her husbands funeral. I called them immediately. Kraeer-Fairchild is a complete class act from the first comforting contact with Mark to the organization of Diana's expertise . John guided me every inch of the way & had a relaxing effect I am forever grateful for. I was so stressed out, intense & devastated. They were all so professional, kind & incredibly patient. I have every fondness & respect for the entire staff. They are excellent people."

"Yes, since the day I walked in with Mark and general staff, it felt like home given the circumstances, everyone made me feel loved, that my brother was being cared for as if he were alive today. For Diana's extreme patience every time I called even up to 3 times a day and always answered my calls with so much empathy and compassion. The same goes with Mark. Mark marks the difference in choosing a funeral home because he is the first face you see when needing these unfortunate services. And what a face, it's like stepping into heaven. John for being so clear, so understanding and so helpful in the smallest of details to make the whole process easier, affordable and heart touching in the finally military service and making everything happen for us and honoring my brothers and my families wishes. So with that said, all I have is gratitude , love and appreciation for all staff members at Dignity/ Kraeer FH and Dignity is exactly what my brother, my family and myself left with!! Thankyou🙏🏻"
