Victor and the staff were amazing! They took care of everything beautifully. They thought of all the details, including things we never would have remembered in our time of grief.

Thank you very much. Jennifer Weaver was a god-send. I live 500 miles away and she was great to work with and understood what I needed. Thanks again

Our situation involved transporting and the deceased from out of state to Algona. Oakcrest coordinated a visitation, service and then transported to another state for burial. They coordinated with out of state funeral directors and the process went flawlessly. They kept me informed every step of the way. ~ Algona, IA

We just wanted to thank you for your "personal touch" you provided to our family during the funeral process for Mom. We knew we could ask you anything as the planning went along. Oakcrest does such a wonderful job at making a difficult time so much easier. Thanks again, Rick. ~ Algona, IA

Thank you all for the peaceful and respectful services for our Uncle Bob. We are very pleased with the services you provided and for respecting our wish for a small, private family graveside service. Special thanks to Jenni for the beautiful display at his gravesite.

Brian has been so kind and supportive in the recent loss of my dad! From the time the picked up his body and I could barely speak as I wanted to give him one last kiss on the forehead, Brian told me to take my time. They very lovingly moved my dad and made sure his was comfortable even though he was already gone. Brian was also VERY considerate and patient when it was hard to speak to help pick out the prayer and program for dad’s services!! Thank you for taking such great care of dad and making this most difficult time easier on all of us!!

Jennifer, Beth and I wanted to send a note of appreciation to you, Matt, and Frank. You were the most helpful and kind “crew” we have worked with on any funeral in our years of ministry. Helping carry equipment, going the extra step to acquire mic stands, opening doors, and your general pleasant nature were all greatly appreciated. Please pass along our heartfelt gratitude. ~ Forest City

Daniel did an outstanding job on my mother so when my father passed away I told the hospital to call Oakcrest and say that "I needed Daniel". His response was absolutely amazing. Words cannot express how thankful I am and always will be for Daniel in my time of need. God bless Daniel and the entire Oakcrest family. You all did an amazing job.

Thank you for an entertaining afternoon for so many widows in our vicinity. So many times we stay at home, rather than be a tag-along and this was an event that we could share with others due to their loss of a loved one. ~ Algona, IA

Everything was done the way I would have done it if I owned the business. Our family was so pleased with the way Marleen looked. I knew when we selected Oakcrest as our funeral home there wouldn't be problems, and there weren't. Thank you from all of our family. ~ Algona, IA

Vic, thanks so much for all your help with Mom’s funeral. The family was very pleased with how well organized and comforting the arrangements were. You and your staff are terrific — very professional and caring. We are very confident that Mom was very pleased that she received the funeral she had wanted and that makes all of us feel so good!

Jenni was so amazing for our Grandparents funeral. My Grandmother died last year and my Grandpa just 2 weeks ago. My sister and I had to meet with Jenni to go over everything and she was so nice and went above and beyond with everything. Thank you for caring so much about our family!!

Brian, you could not have done anything more ~ you covered all the details and personal requests. What a relief for the family when all is taken care of before we even anticipate the needs. You have certainly followed in the footsteps of your father. Your patience and flexibility were great. Your work is not a job, but a ministry needed when folks are grieving. ~ Dubuque, IA

Vic, thanks to you and your team for helping our family, making saying “Goodbye” to Dad a little easier! Your extras meant a lot to us, like the Army magnet on the back of the hearse and stopping by his house one more time. Very professional job, nothing but compliments for all your guys did for our family! Thank you so much. ~ Bancroft, IA

On behalf of our family we want to thank you for all your assistance with mom’ s funeral. Your professionalism put us at ease and gave us total confidence in your abilities. We especially want to compliment Rick Murphy and Brian Schaaf who treated us with such kindness. Mom loved Algona and the people so it is fitting that we buried her there next to Dad and her parents. ~ Alexandria, VA

What a caring and loving widows event you hosted for Valentine’s Day. The food, puzzling magician and bingo were great. Visiting with the widows helped too. Valet service was great on a cold, wintery day! ~ LuVerne, IA

Vic, On behalf of my entire family, I want to thank you for everything you did to make everything go smoothly (especially when we've had to call on your services twice now in the last few months). Anything we asked for, you were right there making sure it would happen. For all of your compassion, caring attitude, guidance, and showing the utmost kindnesses, we are forever grateful. God's blessings to you always. Ledyard, IA
