“Bill,
Thanks for everything. Everyone was amazed at how beautiful and comfortable everything was at your place. Nothing but praise for how you guys handle things.”

Mike Gray

“Dear Bill and Ashlee,
I just wanted to express my gratitude for all your guidance, patience, and kindness during this difficult time. I realize that this is what you always do, but never did I feel like just “”another customer””. Your concern and compassion for myself and my family was very much appreciated and needed. Again, my heartfelt gratitude to yourself and your staff.”

Stacey Hammett

“Bill,
On behalf of my family I want to thank you, your father Tom, Allen, Ashley and all of your staff for their compassion, professionalism and caring during a difficult time. Many family and friends commented on what a beautiful facility and wonderful staff you have. Your kindness was greatly appreciated by our entire family.”

Dwayne Galuska

“Dear Bill,
I wanted to take the time to thank you for your prompt, professional, courteous service I received from you and Ashlee during that difficult time in my life. With having so many emotions running through my head and logically knowing items needed taken care of you and Ashlee did a wonderful job of guiding me along with respect not only for me, but my father’s memory and remains.”

Bill, if I didn’t get ahold of you directly, you were very prompt in getting back to me. Helping with the obituary picture at the last minute meant the world to me; we so wanted to make sure his picture accompanied his obituary in the Sunday paper. Had you not been so proactive, I’m not sure I would have made the deadline. Thank you.

Ashlee, your compassion, gentleness, soft-spoken words were a comfort to me. You have a knack for doing what needs done in a professional, caring, warm manner. You are truly an asset to Bill.

It was comforting to know the people I was dealing with at such a difficult time were caring, compassionate, and respectful individuals towards not only me, but my Dad’s memory, was comforting.

Connie Forte

“Allen & Hindman Staff,
Thank you so much for handling everything so well for my husband’s burial. I’ve gotten nothing but positive feedback about the memorial service and how beautiful the home itself is.

You did a wonderful job and I appreciate all that you did for us.”

The Wetzel Family

“Dear Bill,
I want to thank you for the thoughtful services you provided us. Alan and I will never forget Brad coming and taking us home from the services. Tony was laid to reset in a most life-like manner. After being sick for such a long, long time, we are most grateful.”

“Dearest Tom & Bill,
I knew eventually there would be a time that I would rely on both of you. It was such a comfort to me, knowing my Daddy and Mom were in such capable hands.

please accept my deepest gratitude for the kind, caring, and professional way you handled Miller’s funeral.

I have to acknowledge Courtney on her professionalism and kindness.  You have a gem working for you.  Her and Vince were wonderful when they came to pick our father up.  We loved the facility and the intimacy of the room.  The staff was ready to help in any way that we needed and we will recommend your funeral home to family and friends.

Bonnie Dietz

“Dear Bill,
In perhaps the most difficult time of my personal life – losing my precious mom – you succeeded in helping us as a family to bring dignity and honor to her memory – all with a warmth and sincere caring that was uniquely you. Please also thank Tom, your wonderful Dad for me, for supporting all that you did for us and being there for us all. I will never forget his kind and beautiful words about my mom at the grave site. They will stay in my memory forever. Thank you, also for obtaining the copy of the death certificate for me today. It means so much to know you are still there after all had been said and done.”

Johanna Weaver & family

We would like to add a VERY SPECIAL thank you to all our dear friends at Hindman Funeral Home. Bill Hindman, his dad, and his family went above and beyond to make sure that we gave Tim Schultz, my beloved husband, and our father the most beautiful memorial anyone could imagine! Bill and his family were warm, tender, and caring, not only during this most difficult time, but even many days after; repeatedly calling to check on our family to see how we were doing and if we needed anything. Bless you, Bill, your dad, and all of your family. You made Tim very proud as he watched down upon us from heaven.

In memory of Lee, I had to let you know how much I appreciate the DVD video you gave me.  I still watch it alt least once a day, or maybe twice.  It puts a smile on my face.  He was such a good man and it makes me realize how fortunate I was to have him as long as I did…  A heartfelt “thank you” for all that you did.

Carol Kibler

“Mr. William Hindman III;

During an extremely difficult time I was directed to Luke Slick at your Hastings, PA location.  My mother had passed away suddenly and I needed to make arrangements quickly so that she would be taken care of and I could return home, over ten hours away.  There was no life insurance or resources put away for these expenses and I had to manage it myself.  Luke was so understanding and supportive.  The entire process was dignified and I never felt pressured.  I believe my mother was handled with dignity and respect given the way Luke responded to me.  Throughout the entire time Luke kept me informed of what was happening.  Please pass on my heart felt gratitude for all that Luke did to make the process simple and respectful.  Luke made a difficult time easier.  Again, thank you.”

Evelyn Peeler

We are very pleased with all that your staff has done to be respectful and helpful! We especially were pleased with the flag at the removal of Dad from out home. You made a tough time much easier. Thank You.

Mr. Hindman, you don’t know how I dreaded seeing Daddy for the first time after he died, but I want you to know that you made it so much easier by the way you had him laid out. It was a miracle. I never would have believed it would have been done.”

Kathryn M. Reighard

Luke was courteous, attentive, caring, and knowledgeable and went above and beyond to make everything how we wanted.

The Harold Lansberry family

My family and I wish to express our appreciation and gratitude for the manner in which you serviced us during the recent passing of our beloved husband and father, A. Glen Snyder.

Mrs. Jean Snyder & Family

“Tom,
Thank you so much for everything you did for our family. Your kindness is gratefully appreciated. You helped us through a very difficult time and even though it is your every day life, our family feels and knows that we received that “”extra”” caring touch and we shall always remember you for it.”

Shirley Lambert

“Dear Tom and Shirley,
First your dad, then you, Tom, and now Bill, have been there when I needed you most.

What proud parents the two of you must be to have such fine sons.

Bill took over so professionally and with the love and care that is so typically Hindman. I am sure the Rose family felt the love and care that Bill gave. He helped me in the little things that I needed to do at such a time – the memorial flowers, the service, the funeral – he handled so well.

I just had to tell you that he meant a lot to us as he did the work he has been trained so well to do.”

June

“Mr. Hindman,
Sometimes I think the funeral director is taken for granted because it is his job, but we want you to know that we appreciated very much all your help and kindness in our recent loss. It means a lot to know that somebody is there when needed. We are sure going to miss Daddy.”

Lois and Birdie

“Dear Tom,
Thank you for all your help during this most difficult time in my life. You have taken some of the burden off of my shoulders and I deeply appreciate it. You have been a true friend in handling every aspect of the arrangements, the funeral itself, and in answering some of my questions.

Everyone who came to the viewing remarked about how wonderfully natural Fritz looked, in spite of the tremendous weight loss he had suffered! His family from Philadelphia and New York were very impressed with your work and facilities. Both Ralph and I were very well satisfied with everything.

“Amelia Alberti“

We arranged the service but Luke was able to accommodate everything well.  He made the process very easy and was so helpful and kind.  Thank you so much Luke!  You are great to work with.  You are wonderful.  God Bless You!

Betty Seese

“Bill,
Where do I begin to thank you for all you did on the behalf of my Uncle Joe & our family. I (and my cousin Mark) were so grateful for your wise counsel, attention to details, and coordinating a major portion of the funeral arrangements. I especially appreciated how sensitive you were to meeting the desires of my Uncle in a most difficult time. As our family members rapidly age, I am confident that your strength and experience will be supporting us in the future.

Thank you and wishing you and yours the best of everything in the New Year.”

Ashlee,
By the way, I NEVER got the opportunity to thank you folks at Hindman’s for your services.  The service I was given was outstanding – Everything was explained clearly, everything was carried out as promised…. and I was given some REALLY GOOD ADVICE on other matters pertaining to the estate, etc.  I have, AND WILL CONTINUE to recommend your services.  I think many people are turning to cremation; and for those who want the tradition style, your funeral home is a very warm and comforting place.  Your website was a big help – I could show the family the options before I made the final decisions.  I do like Mr. Hindman a lot – He is as important to the business as the facilities and available services.  And I have told people that.

Thanks for your outstanding service!

David Ruckser

“Dear Mr. Hindman and all staff,

Thank you for your services.  You performed so professionally, caring for my family with the passing of my husband and their dad (Kenneth R. Zimmerman).  Both your caring and friendliness were outstanding.  Courtney is a very nice person and handled things at the house very well.  Take care and may God bless and watch over you always.”

Sue Zimmerman

“Tom,
Just wanted to say thanks again for all you did for our family in dealing with the loss of our wife and mother. Through it was the most difficult time of our lives, we surely appreciate all you did to console and help us with the many decisions we had to make.

We all thought you did an excellent job in making my mother look like, well, like she looked. Thanks also for serving as pall bearer. We felt the entire funeral experience was one which my mom would have been proud to have.

If there is ever anything any one of us can do for you, please let us know.”

Russell Gray & Family

“Dear Tom,
We wanted you to know how much we appreciated all your thoughtfulness, kindness, comfort and understanding that was given to us by you & your staff.

There are not enough words to thank you for granting our request to sing the Ave Maria. It was so beautiful. You did enlighten our burden. We will always remember your warmth and caring.”

Family of Olga Mishler

“Dear Mr. Hindman,
I would like to take this opportunity to once again thank you for doing such a terrific job laying my father, Charles M. Burkett, to rest. Everything was so beautiful and very well done. As well, you were there every step of the way to answer any questions that I or my family had to ask.

I would also like to add that it has been a pleasure doing business with you, Sir! I’m sure the funeral business is a very difficult business to run. Especially trying to please people who are not in a pleasing mood. I, on the other hand, am very pleased with the way it worked out! Your kindness and your generosity will never be forgotten.

Thank you again, kind Sir! May all the roads in life lead to eternal bliss.”

Michael Burkett

“Dear Tom, Bill, & Staff,
On behalf of my family I want to thank you for the services you have rendered for my Mom, Viona, and all of our family. Your thoughts and words of condolence& memories of her were very comforting. She had a gift that was God given. She was there for many sick and dying friends and even strangers who, I believe, were placed at the time they needed a truly caring and faith-filled friend.

God Bless you for your service to those in need.”

Norma

“Mr. Hindman,
Thank you so much for your patience. I’m still battling with Chesapeake Ins. so I’m not sure what will happen. As of yesterday they’re still waiting for his medical records. I guess the fact that it was an accident accounts for nothing.

Mostly though, thank you for your kindness, understanding & beautiful funeral services you provided. Bill would have been pleased. Also, thank you for the name of a Counselor. I’ve gone one time so far, going again tomorrow. I don’t know that I’ll ever feel better but at least they tell me I’m not crazy. My mind is handling this normally.

“Bill & Allen,
Thank you for everything you helped us with. Your help was greatly appreciated in our time of need.”

Shari Kinsey & Family

“To Tom, Bill & Allen,
From our whole family we send deepest thanks for the kindness, time, and personal attention you gave each one of us through Mom’s funeral days.

Mom had mentioned to Aunt Gerry that she wanted to pre-plan her funeral (after Boots died). I believe that what we put together, with your help, would have made her very happy. The video tribute was wonderful – in her words, she’d have said it was “”a real hit”” – even though it was at her funeral!

Tom, to you a special thanks for your solos during the service. It was a special gift to all of us.

Sylvia McDonald & Family

“Bill, Tom, Alan and Staff,
Thank you all for doing such a wonderful job and by making this very difficult time slightly easier to handle. All of you are wonderful!”

Lisa, Emily, Nathan & Katie Saylor

We only had a viewing and were pleased with everything.  I wouldn’t change a thing.  Luke and Vince were wonderful.

Joyce Coleman

“Dear Bill,
I want to thank you for your help. The family was very pleased after we got finished with Mr. Horner. You probably observed he had lost a lot of weight, over 100 lbs. in a five-month period, to be exact. I could not have done a good job if he had not been prepared properly. I thank you again for the excellent job you did for me.

Keller Funeral Home

“Dear Bill,
I appreciated all the way how you went out of your way to handle the funeral, and I know you didn’t charge enough on the bill.

This is not a business letter, but a token for yourself. Thanks a million.”

Albert Rager

“Dear Bill,
Terry and I were pleased with everything you did for us. I am sure things were carried out in the manner Bob would have wanted. It’s so nice to have you as a brother. I also know it was very difficult for you.”

Martha

“Dear Bill,
Thank you very much for being so kind and helpful at the time it sure was needed. I still can’t believe it. I think I must still be in shock. Thanks again.”

“Dear Tom,
Kathy and I wish to thank you for tremendous assistance in the recent deaths of my mother and father. We have felt so relieved that we set up the burial trust and had you help us with the pre-planned arrangements. While such things may be a normal course for you, you made our circumstances feel very personalized and we thank you for that.

It is ironic life brings us to these crossroads. I can remember being in my home on Sheridan Street and my mother , Norma, pointing you out as you walked from school and identifying you to me.

Thanks for your help and your follow-up on the Avava marker.”

Kathy & Gene Schmult

A very special thank you to all the staff at Hindman Funeral Homes for your services and dedication that you provided to our family…My children were very happy and pleased with how everything was handled.  Again, thank you very much.

Rodney Montgomery & Family

“Dear Tom,
How do I begin to thank you for all you’ve done for our family. God is so good – he supplies all our needs in ways we can’t even imagine. To have a fine Christian friend to be there to help Mother when I couldn’t meant so very much. Your warmth & compassion made a very difficult situation much easier. Having to give up a loved one is never easy. No matter how good life has been the loss is overwhelming, but we are able to find comfort in how much we gained from the years we had together. We find that our memories give us strength, the love of our friends gives us comfort & the love of God give us peace. We rejoice that Dad is with his dear Lord & Savior.

We want to say again that we were pleased with all your services for the viewing & funeral. It was good to get to know you & your mother & to learn that we share a mutual friend.

I’ve written to E.J. to reinforce our invitation for her to visit with us. If you have the opportunity please urge her to do so, and assure your mother that we would be delighted to have her come along.

I’ve also written to Mr. Molnar to let him know we felt the service was very fine. He seems like a highly capable & certainly a likeable person.”

Thank you again for your kindness to all of our family. You surely did lighten my burden.”

“Dear Tom, Shirley & Mrs. Hindman,
Well you can surely tell I’m not in the teaching end of the family but we all want to thank you for all the personal touches you added to help us through our loss. And Tom, thanks for keeping an eye on George. He can be a handful at times and Lurlene needed Shirley’s extra touch and Mrs. Hindman thanks for your support and the good coffee.”

“Dear Mrs. Hindman & Tom,
I would like to thank you for all the help you have given to me concerning my Aunt. It was a learning experience. Your helpfulness was appreciated.”

Again, thanks for everything and if you & the family are ever up this way come & see us please.”

Your kindness & courtesy was deeply appreciated.

The Nellie Fregly Family

You help to lift the load off of our shoulders and that gives us a peace of mind.

Thank you for being there. God Bless you for all you have done.”

Catherine Mowery

Many thanks for your help, thoughtfulness and kindness.”

Jim & Florence Orner

“Dear Jeromy,
Just a note to say thank you for all you did for us. We feel we gained a friend, not just a person doing his job.

Everything was wonderful. Just the way Chuck would have wanted it.

I know you will thank of us every time you hear the world “”calliope””.”

Judie

“Jeromy,
Just when I lose faith in the younger generation, God sends someone with compassion and caring for others. Even my brother who never says anything nice about anyone, declared you as a rarity of your youth.

When the waitress told us the gentleman had paid our bill, I looked at my friend in complete awe. In all my years I have never had that happen to me. So that fattening treat became very special. Thank you so very much.

God be with you in all your endeavors. Have a great time on the mountains.

Paula (Maxfield) Miller

“Tom,
Mom looked like an angel – she is an angel! Thanks so much for all the “”special”” courtesies extended to our family. Everything was beautiful. God has truly blessed you with many gifts, Tom. We so appreciate being able to make this kind of arrangement with a friend.

We love you!”

Myrna, Linda, Helen, Wally

“Tom,
We want to thank you again for all the comforting help you gave to my family at the time of our loss (Catherine Mowery) & also other loved ones who passed on before.

We cannot even express the comforting reassurance we feel of knowing that someone we love so dearly will be taken care of by you.

PS I also want to extend my appreciation to Alan for his help of answering questions. He also was a great help to our family as well as you.”

Dorothy Lewis & Family

The Williams Family

“Dear Tom,
You have been a great blessing to me. You go above & beyond your professional duties. I thank you for all your help & your friendship when I was in need.

This past week I received acknowledgement of application from Veterans Administration, Pittsburgh, PA. Thanks to you & your interest. I would not think this applied to me, as distant relative as an Aunt.

Gertrude Repp

“Dear Tom,
With sincere thanks and appreciation for the dignity and care given to both Bernard and my mom and the friendly and professional manner accorded to our families.”

“Toots Weaver Family Dick Bubans Family”

On behalf of my family and I we would like to thank you so much for all you did for us when our Dad passed away (Donald Gray). You went out of your way so that my brother could view him & did a great job at the cemetery as well. Keep up the work mowing & I’ll keep drinking plenty of water.

PS. It’s people like you that make this world a better place. Thank you very much!”

Paul & I wish to express our appreciation for the way in which you cared for Aunt Jane’s wishes and helped us to honor them as well as her friend’s feelings. I’m glad to have had the chance to know you, and hope we meet again. My best to your Mother.

Jane

“Dear Tom and Shirley,
A simple thanks is hardly enough. Your love, support and presence and help in many ways was a source of comfort.

We want to thank you especially for being understanding and gracious about our not asking you to handle funeral arrangements. We very much wanted your support yet feel that Ed could handle the arrangements across both churches (particularly in getting a plot in Christ the Savior Cemetery – which was somewhat political). However, the decision was made with a great deal of thought and we felt very torn. Your love and friendship, though – we knew and trusted – remained with us, and for that we are deeply grateful. We will never forget your caring.

Charlie, Cindy, Dave & Kathy

“Dear Jeromey –
Just a short note to say thank you again, for all you’ve done. My Mom looked beautiful, hair and all. Like I told you, my niece was concerned, as she is a hair dresser in Pittsburgh. I’m just glad everyone was happy so to speak. Bill is lucky to have someone as caring as you”

“Dear Mr. Hindman,
Thank you for your wonderful prompt help to myself, my father-in-law and my parents. My Mom sent some pictures (at my request) of the casket and the beautiful flower arrangements.”

Thank you both for your very special blend of professionalism and friendship in our time of need.”

“Dear Mr. Hindman,
This is just a short note to thank you for the care you gave my mother. We were all very pleased with the treatment and service we received at your funeral home.

You are a very compassionate & caring individual and it certainly shows in your work. Again thank you for assisting us in this very distressing time in our lives.

“Jenny & the entire Kirby Family“

You really performed a miracle with Bill. Thanks a million for everything.

Barbara Oakley

“Mr. Hindman,
I’m Walter Rudnik’s granddaughter, Marcy Morris (the one who asked if your assistant was coming to dinner!)

I just wanted to thank you for all you’ve done for my family. You’ve helped us through so much when we needed it most. Especially my grandmother, she’s really grateful to you.

I’m so glad you let us have his service at your funeral home. My grandfather always loved you and it was his wish to be at your funeral home when he died. He didn’t want to be anywhere else. And his last wish came true.

Thank you also for singing at his service. You have a beautiful voice and he loved it. He often spoke highly of your voice when you sang at our church.

I know he’s looking down on us all from heaven and is very happy. I know he’s thankful to us and all you’ve done, which was very much. God intended it to be this way and I’m glad it was.

I’ll never forget all you did for us and once again, thank you very much.

Marcy Morris

“Dear Mr. Hindman,
I wish to thank you for all your kindness. God Bless & keep you well.”

Mrs. Florence T. Moyer

“Dear Bill,
I wanted to thank you (Alan and I both) for all your kindness, and consideration during out time of sorrow and grief. I know you went “”all out”” to do so many extra things, and all of which made it easier for us all to bear.

Again, I thank you for your kindness and compassion – you eased the burden so very much for us. Say “”hello”” to Dorothy, and all your fine family.

Mary C. Ruby

“Tom,
You just seemed to go that extra mile to make things a little easier for us last week. Your love and understanding were plainly visible and appreciated so much. If you are ever down this way please give us a call & stop by.”

Cecilia & Lloyd Craig

Ron and I really appreciate your kindness and concern for our family. We also appreciate you helping Ron’s parents at a time like this.

Once again, we would like to thank you for everything.”

Ron & Bev Rummel Jr.

“Dear Mr. Hindman,
Our afternoon with Anna Mary and your Youth was filled with discussion, questions and concerns generated by our visit and your presentation. Listening and watching the young folks, I think that the day was very successful in getting them to think about death and dying in the context of our Christian faith.

Once again, thank you for your time, expertise and sensitivity. Pastor Miller and myself greatly appreciated the care and concern you showed to the group. As well, extend our thanks to Mr. Hubbard for his presence and participation.

We appreciate your help and ask God’s continued guidance in your ministry with those who have been touched by death.”

Pastor Ed DeVore

“Dear Tom,
Thank you for making this sad time a little easier to bear. We really appreciate all your kindness, it meant a lot to us.”

We hope you will accept our deepest appreciation for all you did to ease our way when Auntie died.

You folks are so kind and we know that God will continue to use your “”ministry””.”

Mona & Ben

“Dear Tom,
On behalf of Dad and myself, I wish to thank you for all your help during Mom’s funeral.

Our circumstances were different but we managed very well. Thank you for your part in making everything run so smoothly.

Please thank your mother for playing the piano at the service. She and I must be two of the few people who are familiar with the hymn, “”There’s a Rose That is Blooming.”

Mary J. Varner

“Dear Tom,
The past two weeks have been difficult ones for us, and it surely was a comfort (for us) to have all final arrangements for Mother taken care of by caring friends.

We were pleased with the way you handled all of the details, and are especially appreciative of the many kindnesses you and your mother extended to us.”

E. Jane (for Dad and Mary Lou)

“Dear Mr. Hindman and Tom,
Thank you very much for the kindness and sympathy shown to us during these days.

You do so much more than should be required. This helps to make you the special people that you are.

Words do not really express my gratitude, but please know that I am sincere.”

June Hoyland

Dear Bill,

What can we say, NO WORDS can express our thankfulness and kindness you did for us.  Thank you for your support in handling things when we could not think.  May God bless you for your generous help and your thoughtfulness.  We are so “speechless” and would always recommend you to everyone.  Thank you for all that you have done.  God Bless you and your family.

I wish to thank you for your kindness and your thoughtfulness toward us during the Jean family’s time of sorrow. Thank you.”

Mr. and Mrs. Theodore Hunt

“Dear Sirs,
I want to thank you so very much for the way everything was done. I was so satisfied with everything – the way the body was laid out, the way the flowers were arranged & the peaceful serenity of the parlor itself. At the graveside event, though it was pouring rain, I felt so protected. And, the selection of the family sprays were in such good taste. Best of all was the feeling everything was done to save the family any responsibility at all.”

Mrs. Andie H. Edberg

“Dear Tommy,
We want to thank you for all you did for us in our sorrow. You really did a nice job in making our mother and wife look nice. You were so kind to us all. We greatly appreciate all your help.”

Thank you are not enough words to say how very special you were to us in our time of need! It was very special to us to have “Daddy” there where you could care for him as well as us and the visitors. Thank you for seeing to it that Ken was there for us. I am so very grateful for all you do for him. Thank you for your extreme kindness to us all.

Anna May & the Family of Ray Fleming

Anna May Fleming Cook

“Dear Tom,
Thank you for sharing your beautiful voice and music with us on the occasion of Pete’s service. It was very meaningful and comforting to have you with us.

I keep going over the words of the song in my head and fervently hope that Pete is truly in the company of God.

We are grateful for all that you did for us.

Fran Boring and Family

Your kindness will always be remembered by me & my family

Connie & Ahlia Harchick

“Mr. Hindman,
Mere words or this small token can ever express our gratitude to you during this time of loss. Your singing has always been a great inspiration and joy. I also appreciate what you said about Dad, he is a wonderful man. Thank you again for all your help.”

Ralph & Denise Horner

“Dear Tom,
For almost four decades, time and time again you have been an incredible friend. Once again you went extra miles to bring comfort to Dan and families.

We will be forever grateful for your expert ability in handling delicately but effectively, the worried diversities in the family. You and Bill made every effort to accommodate all the various needs, large & small, and having great tolerance for the at times over-active children.

The most appreciated aspect of your efforts was the many instances when you witnessed to your deep faith in God, praying with and for us.

Thank you for all you did for us to lighten our burden. We realize how different it must have been for you and we appreciate your kindness.

Elaine & Bernie Ghezzi and James Davis

“Dear Tom,
Thanks so much from both Lee and I for all your kind help at the time of his father’s death.

“Dear Tom:
I do appreciate your thoughtfulness and the dignified way that you took care of Gloria. Everything was conducted in the manner that I think she would have wanted.

We have all suffered a great loss. I don’t think I’ll ever understand why, but I’ll always be thankful for the time we spent together.

Again, I would like to thank you and your family for the kindness and comfort that you gave to all during this great tragedy.

The Lloyd Craig Family

“Dear William,
You have my sincere and deepest appreciation for your many special care and help given to my son, William J Menshy in preparing him for our family. I know it must have been very difficult for you since he was your Uncle’s student and he was special to Mr. Hindman. I don’t know what to say except thank you from all of us, and God Bless you and keep you in his loving care.

Delores Menshy and Daughter

“Tom,
We want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all you did for us during the time of our sorrow. You’re a very special person that God has put in a very special profession. God knows and plans all of our lives and he knew exactly where to put you. Thank you for being obedient to his calling. You are really a comfort to those who are in need of your services.

Thank you for accommodating our large family and for the special song you sang that really ministered to our hearts and above all for the special work you did for Dad. He truly looked beautiful. We will forever be thankful.”

Mary Rudnik, Myrna, Linda, Helen & Wally

“Dear Tom,
I just had to write to thank you for the excellent and meaningful presentation last Wednesday. It was quite obvious why you are a success at what you do. Your caring and concern radiates. I personally appreciated the time spent on discussing organ donation. This “”gift of life”” is a special cause to me – thank you. Your musical ministry was quite moving. I could have listened to more. Again, thank you for sharing your ministry with us.”

“Nate,
Words cannot express my appreciation for all the nice things you’ve done for me, in the recent death of my dear Mother, Eva Smith.
Once again, thanks and God Bless you.”

Sarah Berg

“Tom,
Thank you so much for making a very difficult time a lot less painful. We can’t thank you enough for your support, let alone seeing Mom’s face when you sand her favorite songs.
We wanted you to have something for making the church service so special.”

The Raymond M. Bracken Family

“Dear Tom,
I just wanted to tell you that each time I have attended a funeral in which you have been in charge of the arrangements, I have been so blessed by the manner in which you closed the service.

Your final words to the family and friends are very comforting – and just seem to bring it to the perfect close. You are very sensitive to the people at that moment.

And for your kindness and offering of service to the Cambria City Mission over the years, I express my appreciation. You have been blessed with a beautiful voice and you have shared that talent so that countless others have been blessed.

I am always touched as I look about and see that people in their own little world, their own little corner, their own little business are faithfully serving the Lord – and are following His command in Matthew 5:16 to “”Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father, who is in heaven.”” You are doing just that, Tom, and I praise God for you.

Myrna Gilbert

“Dear Tom,
The insurance checks have arrived finally, and I’m sending your check on to you with deep gratitude for your very kind and helpful planning and loving consideration for all our wishes in preparing for Bud’s funeral.

It was such a comfort to all of us to be in the presence of such fine Christian friends as you and your mother at such a very difficult time for us. We were so pleased and comforted by your efforts to present Bud as he really was; a pleasant, sturdy, proud Christian gentleman, husband and father. He really looked just as we wanted to remember him.

Your sharing of your closeness and affection for your own father helped our children to accept the loss of theirs.

Your mother’s presence and loving concern was such a help to me, too.”

Millie Reighard

“Dear Tom,
You did an excellent job. He looked like himself and the clothes were real sharp looking. He would have liked that. Thank you for all your help.

Dad had no antique reels or rods. I will be sending a couple of his “”plugs”” shortly. I’m sure our paths will cross again sometime.”

Nancy Varner

“Dear Mr. Hindman,
It was good to have you come and share in our Seminar, “”Living With Loss””. We appreciated the good way you helped us see the need for early planning and being ready to face the reality of death.

I believe the response in questions indicated the need for this kind of presentation as well as the interest and appreciation for your being here. There were many good comments and statements of appreciation for your contribution in our Seminar.

On behalf of the church, I want to say a very warm thank you for your coming and being part of this experience.”

“Walnut Grove Church of the Bretheren David C. Wilson, Pastor”

“Dear Tom,
Thank you for all you did for us. You took so much of the burden off of us in the last preparations for our Aunt Susan.

I am so glad you suggested a Committal Service. Rev. Spence did an excellent job.”

Phyllis & “PeeWee”

“Dear Tom,
Thank you so much for everything. I know Clem would have been very pleased.

Your father would be so proud of you , and I know where he is, he is proud of you! You do have that kindness which means so much!”

Eleanor

Thanks to you, Garrett, your father and staff. I wish there was some other way to say thanks other than say thanks. During this past year with both of my parents passing away, Hindman Funeral Homes was there every step of the way. When we didn’t know what to do you did it. When we needed a father at the grave site your dad was there. When we needed someone to make a decision for us, Garrett did it. To say thanks is not enough. I just wanted to say how thankful we are, and me in specific. Thanks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Also, I wanted to tell you, as a vet you are getting quite the resume. I was at a board meeting at a local bank recently and several vets there were talking about your support of local wounded vets. I knew this because Garrett and I spoke about it recently. I was so proud to say that you guys were our funeral home and how well you did for us and as a vet your awesome. PLEASE keep this up, our vets are important and many times when we get home the adjustment is very hard, I can attest to that. Thanks!!!!!!!! Thanks Bill I know what you’re going to say and you will be humble because that is how you were raised but sometimes you can pat yourself on the back, this is one of those times.

Keith Rager

“Dear Tom,
Thank you seems so inadequate for all that you have done for my mother and also for me.

I will not forget your genuine goodness.”

Carole

“Tom,
Thanks so much for being a special friend. God Bless you richly.”

Ray & Doris Grumbling

The overall organization and execution of activities were professional and personable. The environment was invitng, warm, and comforting. You treated everyone with dignity, respect and kindness. My mother would’ve been pleased!

Bob Mesaros

“Dear Tom,
You did a beautiful job on my Mother. It still hurts to think that I can’t talk to her anymore. We are sorry it took so long for this check but we couldn’t get the lawyers to hurry anything! They have one speed – slow!

“Bill,
You have a wonderful God-given talent for being especially thoughtful. Your overwhelming concern & willingness to go the extra mile helped us through several difficult days. Making the chicken soup for the Thursday visitation meal was unexpected & incredibly generous. Offering to deliver flowers to the Lutheran & Brethren Homes filled us with admiration for the lesson you gave.”

Geeg & Dan

“Dear Tom,
Time and again and again and again you’ve been there for so many things. Advice, direction, inspiration. A person willing to do or say whatever was needed.

You’ll be missed at our table, but a comfort to know not far from Grace’s family.”

Church Council

“Dear Tom,
Again, thank you for taking care of all the arrangements there in Johnstown. It was certainly reassuring to know everything was in such good hands. We will all be returning to Johnstown in the early summer to visit the site.

Give my love to your mom. Thanks for all your prayers & words of kindness.”

Pate & Gene Laughrey

“Dear Tom,
Thank you for your kindness and sensitive guidance during the loss of our Mother. I’m glad we had the foresight to do some planning last year, and I do believe it made things easier for us now.

Yours is a special ministry and no one could be better suited for it. Your singing of Mother’s favorite song brought us all so close to her. Words cannot express our appreciation to you.”

The Marek Family

“Dear Tom,
Heartfelt thanks for all the times you have “”gone the extra mile”” for Dad and our family!”

Betty, Darlene, Jack, Ted, Bonnie & Bobby

“Dear Tom,
Thank you for your part in the beautiful memorial service for Jack today. I am sure the family found the entire service comforting. I felt Pastor Phil’s message was a beautiful tribute to a fine Christian man.

Your message in song with your special way of comforting those who are grieving meant so much to all of us. The people at Pleasant Hill all love you. Thank you, Tom.

P.S. Your son is indeed a boy to be proud of!

June

“Bill,
Thank you so much for everything you did. The service was beautiful. You made a most difficult & painful time for us just a little easier.”

Lisa Marek, Daisy & Kids

“Dear Tom,
Thank you sincerely for all your kind deeds before and after Pop’s death. We shall never forget your song of celebration and then how difficult it must have been to sing “”Heirlooms”” at the funeral service. He would have been so happy with the beautiful service in the church, and how your talent embraced us with pride, not only in life but also in death.”

Aunt Ruth and Uncle Bob

“Tom & Allan,
I want to thank you again for the kindness you showed at the time of my husband’s death. Also for the extra care you took to cover the tumors on his chin and neck. That meant so much to my sons. The service and your help are very much appreciated.”

Rosemarie Nemeth & Family

Thank you for all your help and understanding in the loss of my son. He & I had a great relationship, I will miss him terribly.”

Donna Brummert

A very special thank you to all the staff at the Hindman Funeral Home for your services & dedication that your family provided to our family during this time.  My children were very happy and pleased with your family.  Again thank you very much!

Rodney Montgomery

Our whole family has been coming to this funeral home, and we expect to keep coming here.  I wouldn’t have changed anything.  My husband had a beautiful service, and the whole family was pleased.  Everyone commented on the video and they loved it.

Bertha Felosky

The service was very comprehensive, well managed, very sincere, and thoughtful.  Luke was very professional and compassionate.  Also very thorough in his explanations.

Dear Mr. Hindman, Courtney, and Garrett,

Thank you for everything you and your staff did for my mom, Mildred Milavec’s funeral services and for my family.  Your services were excellent and we were appreciative of your caring and concern.
