I want to thank you so very much for making Dwight's memorial service so special. When we saw him the night of visitation he looked so natural, just like he was sleeping. Thank you for making him look like "My Dwight".
Donna, In reflecting back, I just wanted to "Thank You" for your professionalism at the passing of my dear husband, Marvin, but also for your gentle, caring, and comforting spirit at that time--so needed and appreciated. Blessings, Karen

Working with Donna at Bussell during the most difficult times in our lives (twice in 3 years) was the best choice we could have made! Somehow Donna is the most patient person while simultaneously getting things done quickly! The planning of a funeral is one of the most important days in our lives and you have a few days to do it! Donna makes it all happen so beautifully and we couldn't be more grateful! We are so grateful to the whole staff at Bussell for all they do and with such grace and love!
Donna, Thank you for all of your support and hard work you have don of us at this difficult time.

Dear Donna and staff,
Thank you for guiding my father and me with funeral arrangements in advance. Your caring attitude and attention to details made both my parent's funerals so smooth these past few years (Bridget Moore 2019; Gordon Moore 2022). You made us feel like you were caring for family rather than just a client. With much appreciation - Steve and Holly
Dear Bussell Family, Thank you so much for your recent caring of our father's, funeral and memorial tree that was planted.

Thank You ~ Kathy, Nancy, Ellen, and Mary
Dear Donna and staff, Thank you for the wonderful service you provided for the arrangements of Rachel Merrill. Every detail was perfect!
Sincerely, Jennifer Cole and the family of Rachel Merrill
I can’t say thank you enough to Bussell’s for the care they took in walking our family through funeral arrangements and burial. Every question we had was addressed (and some we didn’t know to ask) with expertise and caring. Their fees are less than many other places while still offering superior services. I have no reservation in recommending Bussell Family Funerals to you help you navigate your way through a difficult time.
Thank you for all you do everyday to make the world a better place. Thank you for holding our hands and loving us through one of the most difficult times of our lives. We love you and see your kindness.
Love Susie and Maddox
Donna did an amazing job with my dads funeral. He looked so peaceful that it gave my family comfort during this most difficult time. She is very loving and compassionate.
Thank you so much for your kind gift of a memorial tree. May it in summer wear A nest of robins in her hair! What a lovely tribute to my dear husband. Bless you all for your loving care of him. In Christ's Love, Judy and Family ~
Thank you, Donna and team, for your outstanding compassionate work with our family during a difficult time. From the prearrangement, to the pick up, to the committal, everything was done with professionalism combined with compassion and respect that was far above any other experience that we've had. My mother-in-law looked so beautiful - I know it took hours of your time - thank you so much. Thank you for taking the pictures of the flowers and things we set out because I didn't have time or thought to do that on the day. I'm so thankful that we did a prearranged service not knowing when it would happen. It was nice to have that all set up so we didn't have to make last minute decisions and try to guess what she would have wanted. I'm glad she got to pick it all out and help make those decisions while she was still here. Thank you for the care and love you showed to us and to her! You are a blessing! -Susie
Donna and her wonderful team has taken care of the two most important people in my life - several years ago, my mother and most recently, my ex husband. She listened to me and got to know who he was and found an amazing place to have his service. She took care of him as if he were her own family and supported me as if I were the only client she had. During some very dark days, the Bussell team made me feel at peace with the decisions being made and provided a service that truly honored the person that he was.
We are so grateful for the beautiful funeral that Donna and her team prepared for my husband. From the moment they picked him until the time we said our final good byes, he was treated with great dignity and respect. Initially, we never considered having the visitation at our church. In the end, it could not have been more beautiful. The visitation was held in the Narthex of the church with lots of windows and blue skies outside. It was perfect setting for a man who loved being outside. We really appreciate all that Donna and her team did for my husband and our family.
Dear Donna, We honestly can't say thank you enough. We greatly appreciate your guidance and words of wisdom and would have been lost without you. You truly have a special gift in helping those who are mourning
Sincerely, Robin and Allie
Donna, Thank you for all you have done for our family during this most difficult time. You have been a blessing and I truly thank you for your caring love and compassion for those you serve.
To the Bussell Family Funerals Staff; Thank you so much for all you did to make everything a little easier for mom and our family and for making everything look so nice. Also, thank you for the tree planted in memory of dad, he would love that! Love, Ethel, Sherry, Stacy, and Family
Dear Donna, My family and I want to thank you so much for all you did to ensure the visitation and funeral for my dad went well. You made the process not so overwhelming by guiding us through each step and taking care of the details so we could focus on honoring our dad. You and your staff were so helpful, kind, and professional. Thank you again for your kindness, support and prayers.

Donna, Thank you so much for all you did to help our mom through the loss of her husband and our dad. You were always there for us to answer our questions and a shoulder to cry on. I don’t know what we would have done without you. .
Words cannot express how blessed I was to find Donna and her staff during a very difficult time in my life. I had two other funeral homes give me incorrect information regarding my husbands veteran’s benefits. I was very confused, heart-broken, and overwhelmed! Donna was honest and caring from the start. She walked me through all the details seamlessly, showing compassion, love, and respect. She worked with me to find a secluded spot for the kids take a break when emotions were getting too much. During the viewing and funeral. I am very blessed to have found Bussell Family Funerals. I am blessed to call them my friends!
Dear Donna, I am so thankful to you for making mom look like mom! She looked beautiful. Thank you so much for taking care of the many details and doing it with love. Everything was perfect !!
Lots of Love ~ Vickie

Donna, Thank you for all you have done for my family. Your support and compassion have been invaluable. The most precious words you said to me were "Connie is now in my care". It gave me an immense sense of relief.
Floyd and his family lived on our street many years. He was a kind and gentle soul and a good and honest neighbor. I am so very sorry and sad to hear of his passing. He was a good and caring man. May God be with his family at this sad time.

Donna, My heartfelt gratitude for your compassion during this difficult time. The pandemic caused additional stress in dealing with personal loss. Your special gift to become a part of each family’s story is truly amazing. This not the first time you have been my rock. God Bless, my friend.
Our family experienced a very difficult situation with the passing of my mother-in-law/mother. My husband and I were overseas trying to get permission to get home during the pandemic which proved to be very complicated. Donna and the Bussell Family went out of their way to make so many accommodations for us that it is impossible to recall all of the acts of kindness. We cannot thank Donna enough for everything! She is a total class act. Thank you again Donna and Bussell Family Funeral Home!
Donna, Your calm presence, purpose and compassion are God given talents which enrich the lives of those you touch. I admire your calling in this work. May God bless you,

Donna, Ron and Associates,
Thank you so much for all that you did for Bob's home going.
I was tense and unsure walking through your doors but as soon as Donna and Ron took me in their arms, I had a peace that never left me. I knew Bob was in good hands and that he would be cared for.
You gave so much comfort and assurance in making all the plans and that every detail was not overlooked. I've had so many comments on what a wonderful service it was.
Thank you for your tireless hours before, during and after the service to make it all possible.
In Christ's Love.

Thank you ever so much for all you did to make my sisters visitation and funeral such a beautiful celebration. I cannot imagine how you were able to handle so many details so flawlessly, but you did. We are all so grateful for the time and genuine concern you gave all of us. Blessings to you.
I want to thank you on behalf of the entire family. Your service to us was far more than politely professional. You went far beyond that. We appreciate so much your kindness and care, your patience and endurance. We know you worked hard behind the scenes, and gently shepherded us throughout the funeral to make everything happen without a glitch, and never appeared to be doing so. You showed such respect to our father, and our entire large family. You are remarkable and your service was outstanding and gracious. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
My heart is so full of love and appreciation for all your help and support to me and my family. Everyone was so very pleased with your services. Mom looked so beautiful!

Thank you just doesn't seem like enough considering all you did for us in such a short amount of time. We are incredibly grateful for your compassion, care, and patience. Our journey hasn't been an easy one, but your gentleness helped with a difficult portion.
We are thankful to have you as Family in Christ! It was nice to be on the same page of wanting to glorify God in our son's burial.
We very much appreciate the love and concern you showed, not just to us but also to Sam's body. In weak moments, Satan tries to bring fear and doubt into our minds. It was a relief to be able to trust you (completely) with our beloved son.
We hope you can forgive us in the delay of getting back with you and getting this note to you. These last few months have been hard, to say the least. Many, many things took a back seat. However, God is still Faithful!!!
I believe God gives us all talents and it is up to us to how we are going to use those talents. You are definitely using your talents to the fullest. My gratitude towards you for what you have done for my mother is immense. I cannot find the words to express my revere for your compassion and kindness. Thank You for your tenderness and for being you.
