Our heartfelt gratitude to the staff at Aderhold for your assistance with the arrangements for our mother, Irene Jez. From the initial contact with Rob Payne, coordinating the service with Janice, and contact with Tim Payne, we felt like we were family. Thank you for helping us through it all.

The Family of Josephine Kallus

To Robby, Janice, Carla, Ernest and the entire Aderhold Funeral Home Staff: Thank you so much for taking care of us through such a difficult time. It was so comforting to know that you would lead us in the right direction through every step of the way. You are so appreciated. God bless you.

The Family of William E. Hromadka

Robby, I want to Thank you and Larry for organizing Debbie's funeral services. Janice was as usual, sensitive to my family's feelings and very professional. It was a sad time for me but God will see all of us through this, and your personal help and advice is very much appreciated. When Debbie passed away on April 4, my son-in-law asked me for help and I knew you and your staff could satisfy all of our requirements. Your Dad and Mom buried my parents in 1968 and 1992, and many of my relatives and friends over the years. So it was an easy decision for us to use your firm. May God continue to bless you and your entire family.

To Robbie, Larry, and Janice: I just wanted to drop a note of thanks to all of you for the wonderful service for Hey. As I have already said, you are the standard by which I measure all other funeral homes and the services they provide. Through the years, my family has truly been blessed by your commitment to service and the high standards to which you hold Aderhold Funeral Home. I can't tell you how many compliments we received on the service, the video, and the overall atmosphere of all the proceedings. We had a definite vision of how we wanted to honor Hey, and, as always, you made it happen for us. We know Hey would have been proud. What you do is truly a calling, and I have never encountered another group who understands the importance of their work more than you do. Please pass my appreciation on to Jonnie for the fine tradition she and Al established, and to the rest of the staff for all their efforts. I know what a team effort it takes to coordinate those events, and to watch all of you work is truly inspirational.

I want to thank all of you for your care and concern this past year. The books you sent were very comforting. It is difficult to give up your loved ones, but to have people like you to help, makes the burden lighter. I grew up in West, and as a little girl, I was taught to respect Aderhold Funeral Home. Mr. Aderhold and Kyle buried so many of our older generation, and now you have the younger generation. My dad thought so much of Mr. Payne. He was a fine man. May God continue to bless all of you in the wonderful service you provide for the bereaved. I love each of you.

From the family of Thomas Porter

Where do we begin? How do we thank all of you for all you have done? Your personal touch makes a difficult time bearable. Your professionalism, kindness and helpfulness is a welcome touch when we need it most. Words alone cannot express our gratitude for all of your help and for making Linda's service a memorable and comforting one. We know now that angels do walk among us. God bless!

From the family of Linda Sharp

I am Bobo Jaska's eldest grandchild. I just wanted to thank your staff for all of their work. I was so incredibly impressed with everything. The website, with directions to all locations, the photo gallery, obituary and guestbook, is amazing. You've thought of everything, I didn't expect this of a small town funeral home. It is nice to be able to share photos and information with people who are not able to be there, and great that they could sign the guest book. Also, the service of picking up flowers and taking them to the house and church was so nice, along with coordinating the post-funeral meal. I know everyone who was at the visitation really enjoyed the Video Tribute, there were so many compliments on it. Everything was truly beautiful, I know my grandfather would have been very pleased. Thank you for all of your hard work!

From a grandchild of Bobo Jaska

We attended my cousin's funeral last week, and as always, your staff did a superb job. I just wanted to bring to your attention and to compliment Janice on her expertise and professionalism at the cemetery. She is so caring, but also very sincere with her words and actions. She is a wonderful addition to your staff! Keep up the good work. God bless each and every one of you.

From a cousin of Buck Stanislav

Their operation is above and beyond needs. All the personnel associated with Aderhold Funeral Home are well chosen. The service was 110%! All of their services, from the initial phone call to completion of the service, were SUPER. The owners and staff deserve a big pat on the back.

From the family of Shirley Janek

As with my mother's funeral ten month's prior to my dad's, Aderhold Funeral Home, in ALL capacities, met and exceeded what other funeral homes may do. Our entire family intend on using the Payne family and Aderhold Funeral Home for any of our final services. West is quite lucky to have a facility of this level.

From the family of Robert Shebesta

Thank you for everything you ALL have done for us this year. As Rev. Crowder said at last evening's service, you go above and beyond the call of duty!!

From the family of Mike Nors

We would like to extend a special thank you to each one of you for your endless efforts during our time of grief. We appreciate your sincere words, thoughtfulness, ability to fulfill our every need, and all of the hugs. The video was beautiful and it captures many memories of Oley that we can share with our children one day. Y'all will always hold a special place in our hearts!

From the family of Marvin Owens

Thank you for the sincere concern and professionalism you exhibited while dealing with us at the time of mom's death. We feel the service was everything we wanted it to be, and we very much appreciated having the visitation in the lovely room. Mom looked really pretty, and I can't express the comfort that provided. You took care of every detail for us, making a difficult time much easier. Thank you for your thoughtfulness in caring for our needs.

From the family of Claudia Younger

Thank you seems like such an inadequate word to use when telling you how we all feel. You are more like family. This has to be the hardest time in the life of a couple that loves his or her mate such as I do. Thank you for everything you have done; everything you are doing and I know everything you will still do when we need you. This is such a difficult time, but you have helped to lighten our heavy burden.

From the family of Willie Rejcek

Thank you so much for all you did to make my mother's death less painful for our family. She looked so beautiful and this was a great comfort to us. And everyone was so caring and accommodating. Your attention to every detail and eagerness to please was greatly appreciated.

From the family of Louise Smith

You did an outstanding job, and you were very loving and comforting to each of us. ALL of your help was GREATLY appreciated. Jim looked so handsome. We know you will pray for us. Thank you, Janice for the beautiful rosary and all of your attention to our loss. God Bless you all!!

From the family of James Hall

Your entire staff was wonderful to deal with. As personal friends of my aunt, you provided the most personal care I have ever experienced.

From the family of Georgie Twitty

All I can say is that Robert and Larry Payne, Jonnie Payne and Janice Kaluza and all of the employees were very kind and sympathetic, which was very comforting to me and all of our family, before, during and after the funeral services of my beloved husband.

From the family of Eddie Kubala

Your family has served my husband's family and my family since you have been in West, which has been many years. You are the kindest, helpful, loving and honest people that can be found. Your whole staff is the greatest! I wouldn't entertain any thoughts of going elsewhere.

From the family of Loyd Davis

We would like to thank you for everything you have done for our family in recent weeks. The services were beautiful and mom hasn't looked that pretty in a long time. We've had so many compliments on the way she looked. Robby, we deeply appreciate the extra work you did on her. Thank you for listening to our requests and suggestions. And thank you to all of your staff for being so cordial and concerned about all of our family. Our words of thanks will never express how deeply grateful we are to all of you. Thank you again.
