Dear Katherine and staff of McKenzie and Blundy Funeral Home:
On behalf of the Hodgson family, we would like to thank you for all of your care, concern and support during our most difficult time.
The employees of McKenzie and Blundy Funeral Home are very knowledgeable, and they took the time needed to guide us through all the arrangements.
We found that all the staff went above and beyond in answering questions and making recommendations, making the difficult decisions we had to make a little easier.
McKenzie and Blundy offers many unique extra services, such as, an angel pin which was personally given to each family member in memory of our loved one, the on-line condolences for people out of town, the memorial tree planting service, the video tribute which provides us with a lasting memory of our loved one, and the after care where you meet one on one with a staff member who guides you through the process of filling out all the necessary paper work needed by different government agencies.
Again, thank you for all you did.

I wanted to let you know how much we appreciated your expertise and guidance given to our family while preparing for Terry's funeral arrangements.
During this time it is very difficult to focus and you were our clarity.
You were always ready to fulfill our needs and you prepared Terry to say his final farewell dressed like my knight in shining armour. His gentle spirit guided those around him and you captured the essence of him with the smile he wore and look of calm. We will be forever grateful to you for those final memories.
The short service with friends and family were just the way he wanted his final chapter to end. What a wonderful story.

Too many times in these days people complain about anything and everything.
Today I would like to take the time to compliment an employee of yours, Dale Patterson.
Our mother, Genevieve Cox, passed away on Feb. 28, 2011 at Vision Nursing Home. A few days beforehand, I called a few funeral homes, and when I spoke to Dale he was the only one who was warm, helpful and informative. I felt he was more interested in people than in making money. He helped us through difficult arrangements and relieved us of the burden of worry.
He understood our humour and our grief.
Thanks to Dale both of our parents are interred together at Resurrection Mausoleum. What a wonderful representative for your company.
I just wanted to let you now how very satisfied we were with our dealings with McKenzie Blundy.
Sincerely, Frances Frauley (The Cox Family)

We lost our 35 year old son in a tragic accident, and experienced overwhelming difficulty in deciding what to do for his funeral.
We do not want to leave this burden to our children. Pre-arranging and pre-funding our own funerals will help ease the pain, with no arguing or hurt feelings. Our children now know what we want at McKenzie & Blundy.

McKenzie & Blundy Funeral Home has been caring for our family members for many years as you say, - before, during and after death. Our most recent experience was the death of my mother. We had discussed and made plans for this previously, but discussions and reality are very different things. My mother was 95 when she died, a wonderful loving person who deserved the best in life and in death. Walking into McKenzie & Blundy to make the final preparations and arrange the funeral was difficult, - but the warmth, support and compassion received from the staff was excellent. Nothing was too much trouble, and everything was taken care of in such a respectful and dignified manner. You are all exceptional people, thank you so much for helping us through a very difficult time.
