I am so glad for the gift of a pre-planned funeral. You helped make one of the worst days of my life as smooth and thought free on my part as possible. Please pass on my thanks to the artist who took my phone-snapped picture of my dad and turned it into a beautiful picture worthy of a place on the wall...simply beautiful.

I just wanted to thank each and everyone who was a part of my husband's funeral.

Thank you for your flowers and doing such a good job on his photo video. You all have my heartfelt gratitude for all you did, and my family and I appreciate the wonderful people at Ziemer's East Chapel Funeral Home.

My family want to thank you and your staff for an outstanding job well done. You have a first class operation.


I wanted to send a note of thanks for the care and support you showed to our family during the time when my parents were being laid to rest. I have participated in many visitations and funerals that you have organized and directed over the years and I always knew you provided outstanding service. You certainly exceeded my expectations with the care and organization you provided when my family was being served. From the moment we learned of their passing to the time they were laid to rest, every detail was anticipated and executed flawlessly. It was such a comfort knowing that all of the details we knew about as well as the details we learned about during the process were completely provided for by you and your staff. I will be forever grateful that you helped our family develop fond and lasting memories of the service for our parents.


Thank you for making J's final journey a wonderful dedication of her life.

Angelo, Thank you for your compassion and help. You recently assisted me in locating the owner of a burial plot. At a time of such sadness, your kindness was greatly appreciated.


Ziemer Staff, Thank you for your care and concern for our family during the time of our father's death. Your professionalism shone yet the family touch was there also.


Thank you are not strong enough words for how we feel for what you all did to make mom's service beautiful. While we are still numb from her passing, wanted you to know that we appreciate all your kindness, compassion and care during these past weeks. We are grateful mom was able to make her wishes known to you, and appreciative of you all doing what needed to be done to fix some of the hiccups that were experienced due to mother nature along the way. You all went the extra mile and back, your offer to change services to inside the funeral home were spot on. We can't imagine getting through this without your professionalism, prompt responses and overall awesomeness. So grateful and thankful you all were part of it.

We wish to thank you for contacting Batesville for the Living Memorial Program in planting a tree seedling in honor of our mother. She always loved light houses. To us she was that beacon of light to all that knew her. May this memorial be a beacon for our natural resources, shining brightly, inviting our wildlife to seek shelter in her loving branches.

Thanks to all that provided comfort to my family at the passing of my mom. The Ziemer staff allowed us to transition from a state of mourning to celebrate a life well lived.

H. Family October 30, 2019

I would like to thank you and your complete staff for the excellence in which you and your staff handled my wife's funeral. I could not find one single thing that I could complain about. I later met with Angelo to set up my own funeral in advance so my children don't have to go through the trouble to plan it. Angelo was completely professional and able in every way. Today I received in the mail a folder from him detailing everything we decided upon at the meeting. I want you to know that I feel a great relief in having completed my own arrangements.
