    Good morning Chris, It was so amazing to meet you. I am now more certain than ever that you are an angel on this earth. The memorial was more than we hoped for and gave my husband's family a special moment to be together with their father. I want to also thank you for giving me the peace of knowing my grandmother was no longer at the hospice but in your care. Knowing that she will also be honored in such a beautiful place will give my family much needed time to honor her together. Life is so unpredictable and from all the sorrow meeting someone like you gives me hope that there is still such good in this world. And yet it's true, these were such sad circumstances to meet in, but I am so glad God connected us in his own special way. I wish you a wonderful day. If there is anything else I need to do please call me at any time. Sincerely and sending many virtual hugs, ----- Read more

    A.L. Jacobsen We weren’t prepared the night my wife, ------, died and called A.L. Jacobsen at 4am based on excellent reviews. Anthony returned our call, explained their services and gave me a price range (they were the only Funeral Home with a price list). In tragedy, finding A.L. Jacobsen was to prove the best choice that we could have made. We met with Chris later that morning and he took as much time as our family required to answer our questions and address our needs. He guided us in the preparations for my wife’s viewing. In all ways that a Funeral Home might have anticipated and relieved our burden, A.L. Jacobsen’s staff did exactly that. They attended to every detail that made ------’s viewing an unforgettable and beautiful event that, though terribly sad, was also joyous and a fitting celebration of her life. Throughout, Chris, Anthony, Richard, Kevin and the Jacobsen staff were accommodating, flexible, professional, compassionate and responsive. I could have had no better partner in helping us say farewell to my beloved wife and our beloved mother, grandmother, daughter, sister and friend. Every family member commented that they felt serene and fulfilled when we returned to the Funeral Home after the viewing. My heartfelt thanks and appreciation to A.L. Jacobsen and I would recommend them without reservation. Read more

    Dear Richard, On behalf of out family I would like to take a moment to say thank you Richard for making our mom ---- -------- funeral more special than we could imagine. When we first sat down to discuss all the details you were so patient, answered all question and made phone calls for further information on the spot. By the time we left we felt such relief that our mom was in such good hands and had an immense sense of peace. The appointment went so smooth. I will never forget you coming through the front doors of St. Patrick's Church with my mom's Horseshoe flowers. The instant I saw you it was like seeing an old friend. Then, when we went outside because you went to get my mom out of the car I said, "It figures mom would ride up front with Richard in what looked like a new hearse". I didn't realize you would attend the whole Mass. When I saw you were still there when it was over, again was like seeing an old friend. The Mass was so beautiful, and you helped our family so much to bring everything together. Richard you took my mom for her last ride above ground. you drove so perfectly and patiently. We are forever grateful and will look back and remember funeral our mom had. A.L. Jacobsen is very special to our family because of when our father ------- ------ ------- died in 1995 A.L. Jacobsen was there. I will never forget the kindness from Chris Jacobsen. Mom and Dad are together and every time we drive by A.L. Jacobsen Home we will have a warm sense of peace.

As I explained I am trying to confirm weather my brother was in a communications unit as he told his family or actually in the infantry as was reported to me by a cousin last weekend. A letter from the funeral home was requested by military personnel records if a death certificate is not available.
