On behalf of the entire Frey family I want to thank you. From the moment we stepped in those doors to plan the most difficult event of our lives you put us at ease. We felt like we’d known you forever. Your professionalism, your compassion, and empathy was not just because you were doing a job, you are simply an amazing human being. You went above and beyond to make Daddy’s services beautiful and made sure he was honored in every way. You recognized immediately how honored he was to serve his country and what it means to him to be a United States Marine. You paid attention to the smallest of details and made certain everything was perfect. Thank you is not enough. You are definitely an Angel on earth. Sincerely, The Frey Family

On behalf of Audrey Breaux Budde, I wish to thank Stefanie Weigel, Catherine Gauthier, and Kevin Rickmon for the care and professional services provided to me and my family during a very stressful and emotional event. Mr. Richmond met us when my wife and I first arrived Friday morning and showed us which parlors were assigned to us and which breakroom was set up for our family. Stefanie met my wife and I and stayed with us through out the entire visitation period, Memorial Mass, and Graveside services. Catherine helped set up the pre-planning arrangements and was very attentive to our needs and wants to provide a honoring tribute to our mother.

Thank you

Don S. Budde

I was beyond pleased with the flowers. I was ecstatic, actually. That fellow you talked to on the phone that day really delivered exactly what I wanted, probably more, and I couldn't have been happier.

Thank you and your fellow workers for helping me with my father's service. Everything went off without a hitch, I felt. The service that you and everyone delivered was very pleasing. And, I thank you.

I recently needed assistance in obtaining prayer cards for a sister-in-law who passed away. She lived in the greater Houston area and her remains had been cremated. The graveside memorial service is being held in New Orleans, because the family all originally lived in the city, and the family had a spot in the Greenwood Cemetery.

The services I required were modest in cost, but Mr. Hartman gave me the same time and attention as though I was spending thousands of dollars. Mr. Hartman walked me through the process of selecting an image and an appropriate verse for the card. And he did not balk when I asked for a more personalized song lyric. Although her originally told me that the cards would be ready several days later, he called me the following day with the news that the cards were ready to be picked up.

Mr. Hartman was professional and kind throughout, and, on behalf of the entire Higgins family, I wanted to express my appreciation.

I will never be able to correctly or appropriately express my thanks to you and your team for the wonderful and caring service you provided to my mom and our family. Dad was and continues to be our hero and helped us celebrate him in a grand and caring way.

You are truly a treasure and I am forever grateful.

We recently attended a funeral for Ryka Vercher on 3/9/2020. While at your beautiful facility we encountered Nelda and Kevin Rickmon. We just wanted to say how impressed we were with both of these fine employees and their kindness and willingness to help us.

Nelda gave us a wonderful "history" of the Schoen family building and a delightful tour of the original building and the new chapel. We recognized Kevin's kind and joyful demeanor as soon as we met him. We felt very welcomed and, of course, the services offered for the Vercher family were characteristically excellent.

Thank you for excellent service and a very real sense of care and compassion. Blessings to each of you.

Please let Nelda and Kevin know we really appreciated their kindnesses.

Dear Kevin,

On behalf my entire family, I would like to praise and thank you for the special attention and service you extended to us after the death of my husband. I don’t think you could have been more helpful or professional.

We will always remember the service fondly and found it befitting of our loved one.

Dear Kevin,

How can we thank you enough for all the expert guidance and assistance you gave our family during our bereavement? You were at all times, totally sensitive and kind, but also completely professional and practical. You know how to “listen” and never tried to lead us into a direction that would not have been right for us and for Patrick.

Getting through one of the saddest periods of my life was made so much easier by your consummate professionalism. And we will never forget watching you calmly, and little-by-little, win over our very traumatized and angry 20 year old nephew. You were amazing!
We hope you will take us up on our invitation to visit us in Chicago. We would so enjoy seeing you again.

In the meantime, we wish you and your family a wonderful holiday season.

With gratitude,

Nancy K.

Thank you so much for your comfort and support for my family in the planning and preparations for the funeral. Your kindness and professionalism were greatly appreciated.

We really liked Father Copper and the pianist did a lovey job. in fact, there isn't a single things I would've changed! The limo drivers were awesome too.

Thank you again and I hope you'll share this with Patrick Schoen and let him know how pleased we were with Jacob Schoen & Son Funeral Home.

Dear Kevin,

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for so wonderfully handling my father’s funeral. Even though I ended up in the hospital and was unable to attend, I knew you would carry through. That peace of mind made my circumstances much less stressful.

So many people have said that Dad was laid to rest with dignity, grace and class. That is just the reason he thought so highly of Scheon’s funeral home.

Thank again Kevin. I greatly appreciate you!

Most sincerely

I just wanted to thank you again for all that you did to provide comfort for me and mt family. Although the youngest, I have always been the rock of the family and at this trying time I questioned how I was going to remain strong for everyone. Your professionalism aside…your genuine emotional support got me through what would have been a very trying time. Words cannot being to express my gratitude for what you did today and how it touched me to that you were not acting only as a representative of Schoen’s but as a compassionate, concerned part of our family.

Thank you from my heart,
