Jay R was truly a gods helper on the day our dearest mother passed away. It was one of the hardest days and they made it so much easier and made us feel like family. They truly went above and beyond to get her to the funeral services and the viewings. Thank you so much and will only be hiring you for our future services.

Tiffany Nordfelt

Jay R and Scott are amazing! Jay R is truly a God send to my sister and I. When our dad passed away almost 4 years ago he was right there to help my sister, mom and I though what we thought would be the toughest time in our lives. 3 months ago Jay R was right by our sides when our mom passed away very suddenly. If it wasn't for Jay R and him taking the quality time to get to know our family when our dad passed my sister and I could not have ever survived. I honestly couldn't ever explain the love and compassion he takes with every family. Thank you Jay R for all you have done to help us, and I know you will continue to make the toughest time in a persons life a little bit easier.

J.R. and the staff are very good people . They're so understanding and let you take time to say goodbye to your loves one. They helped with my grandma almost 2 years ago and now with my cousin that passed last week.

Amber Krauss

Jay R. went far beyond what was expected when our Aunt/Grandmother passed, handling everything from the time of her death to final disposition of her remains. The situation was made more difficult because much of the planning was with relatives who were not local. He made that far easier than it could have been, offered excellent suggestions, and was infinitely patient with all involved. Jay R. looked out for our best interests financially, providing us cost savings with the cemetery and her services. He even arranged for the funeral to be at a church with the local bishop conducting the service and the Relief Society providing a meal for the family and friends afterwards, for someone who was not a member of that ward. As stated, he went above and beyond to make sure all was as smooth as possible in a bit of an unusual situation. He was available at all times, always willing to help and offer his expertise. At the end of my experience, it felt as if I was working with a family member. Jay R. has my gratitude and I strongly recommend his services to anyone.

Didericksen Memorial has conducted two services for our family in the past year. JR and his staff are very professional while being understanding and sympathetic to your loss. They are very detail oriented, paying attention to the smallest things to ensure that everything is perfect. They make a very difficult time bearable. Their knowledge of all that needs to be done after the services has been very beneficial. I would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for this service.

Child Family

Didericksen Memorial did such amazing job with our mother’s funeral. From the very first phone call, we knew we made the right choice. He came to our home to make the arrangements, which made it easier on all the family, was very respectful of our family privacy and feelings after our mother passed. They also provide grievance support and helped in preparing the documents for Social Security. Their office even called one month later to make sure everything was okay and checked to see if we needed any additional help with the paperwork. Jay R made the experience of laying her to rest a very smooth experience and couldn't ask for more of the honest company to deal with. There are no words to express my gratitude for the way they took care of my mother. Jay R thanks again for all of your hard work and honesty. Very stand-up company.

We were so happy with how everything turned out for Dad's funeral. I felt like everything was so personal. the process was so much easier than we expected, particularly where we were spread halfway across the country. In addition, the total cost was less expensive than we had been told by other companies. Your service in every aspect made a difficult time much easier for our family. I hope your business continues to flourish and be the asset it is now to Grantville. Sincerely,
