Again, Lou returned with the death certificates in a very short time – and has promised “personal delivery” of ashes at my convenience, not his! I will recommend your establishment to all my acquaintances.

Carl Goettel Jr., son of Isabelle F. Goettel

Your comments about our staff: Everyone on staff was there for my family and me. Anything we needed was no problem. Louis did an exceptional job with my husband, John. I was concerned how things would be, but when I saw John, I was very pleased. I wasn't rushed through, I was given plenty of time to be with my husband.
Would you refer us to others? Yes, I had nothing but positive comments to make to others about the services. Additional comments: The office staff was very accommodating. I had to make several trips to the office for thank you cards, and they were so courteous. I had one problem in the remembrance book. It was a typo problem. I called and right away they brought me a new page for in my book. They brought it right to the house promptly. If they weren't available at the home, the service would page someone and they would return my call within minutes. Again, thank you for the wonderful services provided.

I cannot say enough good things about your staff. Lou was very helpful and caring. My husband looked wonderful. I was so afraid Lou wouldn't be able to make him look right. What an outstanding job was done. I am so grateful.

Lou was exceptional and I appreciated all his help. Joyce was just as great and was very helpful.
Lou was our Milton contact and he was gracious and eager to please. Leola was taken to Elmira, NY for burial, and Bob drove the vehicle. We followed in our car. He drove at a respectful speed and he was very cautious. The whole experience was handled by these two men with dignity and respect! Thank you!
Would you refer us to others? Leola was beautiful and natural looking. I judge a funeral home by not only the staff, but the make up they use. So often the deceased has a yellow look. That's not natural! But Leola looked wonderful.
Dollie Keefer, friend of Leola M. Kemp
My son, daughter and I were very satisfied with the staff. Everything was "special".
Would you refer us to others? I would definitely refer you to others. I was very impressed by the staff and by Lou, the Director.

Louis Sibula is a credit to his profession. I certainly will refer Allen & Redmond Funeral Home to all. Louis also expressed compassion and sensitivity to us.
Sister Celine M. Smith, daughter of Henrietta K. Smith
Lou was beyond impressive. Who would ever imagine at a time like this, burying a mother, that the 'home' made it bearable! Many Thanks.
Tim Wolfe, for Jean Wolfe
I can't begin to say enough about Lou. He was absolutely wonderful to work with. He treated me with warmth, dignity and respect. I really appreciated the wonderful service from a caring, professional, courteous, extremely helpful and kind employee. Louis made my experience very comfortable. I would recommend Allen & Redmond to everyone.

Donna Fitzkee, S/O of Ronald Lochbaum
The family and I were very pleased and appreciated all of the help in all ways and especially helping people from the icy parking lot to the church without any one falling. Many friends remarked about your helpful and polite staff. Thanks Lou for all your thoughtful and kind deeds. It meant a lot to me.
Delma G. Strickler, widow of Clair
Lou did a great job. I dealt with a funeral home in North Carolina where my father died and it was an awful experience. It was wonderful to switch to this funeral home. It was such a different experience.
Name Withheld by Request
Lou was very, very helpful. John was helpful 'pre' my husband's death and they have been helpful 'post' death also. Everyone that has ever worked for Allen & Redmond have always been very professional & helpful. My mother-in-law was a client of Allen & Redmond some years ago. The cost, care and delivery of her to Buffalo, NY, was done very well. The funeral home in Buffalo was very impressed with the work done by Allen & Redmond. My husband and I were very pleased. John and Lou really touched my heart with how special they treated me. I had no idea of how I should handle things; they took me step by step and I was able to understand and choose things to my liking. My husband was handled as delicately as possible. Dressed great and looked very natural. For this I really thank you. His memory will last forever in my mind. Thank You, Thank You, again. You have a great team! Sincerely,
Vivian J. Peoples for Conde Peoples Jr.
Lou Sibula helped me so much, both, a year or so ago when I made final arrangements for my Mom and upon Mom's passing. He is the most caring person I've ever met and made this experience so much easier for me. Everything was perfect. Mom looked beautiful. The bulletin with pictures and program were outstanding and the book the guests signed was so unique. Everything went on schedule even when my Mom's sister arrived late from out of town and needed to see her. Lou arranged for that too. I intend to make my final arrangements with Allen & Redmond. Thanks so much.
Sherri Johnson-Brooks for Jessie L. Johnson
We dealt with Lou. He is fantastic! In addition to doing all of the things that you expect of him, he has a great personality. Also, I cannot adequately praise the way that my Mother was presented at the viewing. He can do my make-up when I die. Whenever I asked Lou about anything, he said that it was all taken care of. He is fantastic! When I said that I wanted to take pictures of the flowers, he said that he had already done it!
Judy Kerlin, daughter of Vita Switzer
I had the privilege of working with Lou, again. I remembered the wonderful care my sister received less than 2 years ago. Lou was very helpful and compassionate. He walked me right through everything again with my brother. I couldn't have done it without him. He was so supportive. I'm so thankful for all he has done for my family. What a wonderful, caring, compassionate place to lay my loved ones to rest. I would highly recommend Allen & Redmond because the staff is excellent! You have gone above & beyond. Many Thanks.
Robin A. Kriner, sister of Frank E. Reese
Your staff did a great job. Lou did a great job. I would refer you to others because your staff is very professional and courteous. Lou, you are just a Great person! Thank you.
Murry Potts for Shannon Potts
Lou was very comforting in the loss of my mother, Kathryn Baker. I was made to feel at ease instead of so stressed which normally occurs at funerals. Thank you. You're very professional and respectful atmosphere, plus Lou's being able to make things at ease was a definite plus. Lou has a unique ability to make people at ease, but still maintain a professional atmosphere.
Cheryl Baker, daughter of Kathryn S. Baker
