On behalf of my sister and myself, we are truly grateful for Dakan Funeral Home, especially Alan Kerrick. Alan's empathy and compassionate care went above and beyond in every aspect of our needs during such a difficult time in making final arrangements for our Mom and Dad. We thank you,
Thank you for your caring and immediate action on behalf of our family!! We appreciate you placing a temporary marker on our moms grave while the monument is being built and daily updates and photo after it was complete.
God has a plan. God is good. The is what enters my thoughts when I think about Dakan. Valden has been there supporting and comforting us through rough tim s. We met several years back and have always had pleasant conversations. When I am not sure what to do they take time to allow yourself to grieve. With patience and kindness they walk you through the process and treat you like family. Thank you for your wisdom. 🙏
Dear Person in Charge of the Dakan Community Center,
A big THANK YOU for letting "Caldwell Meals on Wheels" use the Dakan Community Building for our luncheon. It was an excellent place to use.
Dear Valden and Staff at Dakan's,
On behalf of our entire family thank you so much for your kind and professional assistance in planning and finalizing our loved ones service. We appreciate the caring and kind manner in which you interacted, helping to take much of the stress away so we could focus on the necessary tasks.
The online information and tributes carry a special touch and we look forward to the video tribute. We've heard many comments on how lovely the online tribute is. Your heart is truly in your work.
I cannot thank you enough for the love and caring that you have given me. You are a "jewel".
Dakan Funeral Chapel,
Your patience, kindness and compassion made this very difficult situation not weigh as heavily. Sincere Thanks!
Dear Dakan Funeral Chapel,
Thank you for your very generous donation to our son's 6th birthday service celebration. You made a huge difference in what we were able to do for the teachers and I am so grateful for all of you! Thank you for taking such wonderful care of our son. Making a difficult time just a little easier for us.
We love and appreciate each of you! Thank you!
Titus Fay and your Associates,
My children and I would like to sincerely thank you for everything you guys were doing for us.
I know it's your job but you really took our worries away, we really didn't know what to do.
We thank you very much. You and Chantele are very good people.
Thank you for the countless time of listening to me and letting me vent. We are so grateful for everything!
I can't begin to tell you how pleased I am with all the preparations that you have done to make our loved ones day special. Thank you for all of us!
Alan, Lisa, and the entire Dakan team have provided compassionate, high-quality care to our family and friends for many years. The professionalism and human touch in the most difficult times are what makes Dakan’s stand apart from all the rest.
Everyone at Dakan’s has been wonderful they all show such compassion. I would like to say Titus, Chantelle and Ruth are totally amazing . If the ratings were higher than 5 I would have gave them a 10 star. Thank you for all you do.
Chantele thank you so much for all your help and making everything stress free for us as we planned the funeral. We so appreciate you and will never forget your kindness and love.
I did not know what to do when my wife Anne passed away due to Covid. Valden helped my children and I through the process as we chose the options available. Chantelle also was very helpful while we worked through the paperwork and completed our tasks. The beautiful room we were provided met all our family and friends needs for the service and the video recorded of the service has been a blessing as we've reviewed who was there. God bless this wonderful team and their compassion with those who have suffered loss.
To our fellow "laborers"
No one sees more than us how you are the "front lines" for our community and how hard all of you have been working. We just wanted to give you a little reminder that there are people along side you who are impressed with your professionalism while seeing the hurting around you. Here's a little salt and sugar to get you perked up! Many thanks to all of you.
I want to extend my gratitude to Valden and the staff for the warm welcome and love you showed a single mother with limited resources. Not once was I pressured to do anything above my budget. You all made this difficult time losing my son very comfortable and with sincere kindness. You went above and beyond what I was expecting and I will be forever thankful. In just a short few days, yiu became family, God bless you all.
We greatly appreciate Mr Valden & staff. Valden did such a good job on helping us make the arrangements. This was all new to us & he made it a smooth process. Kept us informed thru the process. Treated everyone with such kindness and compassion. Thank you for all your help.
A little bit about the man I called Daddy:
My father was a stubborn man with deep Mexican roots whom believed that Pre funeral arrangement were an invitation for death to come knocking at your door. Even at 84 years old he forbid us to even mention any type of arrangements; we did finally have to say good-bye to the man whom shaped all his 7 children to always work hard and be kind human beings.
Like they did with my Grandmother and Uncle before my father; Dakan took us in and made us part of their family. Dakan immediately went to work on a funeral package that would fit our budget and not once were we pressured to choose out of our budget goal.
Thank you Dakan Family for all you did for us during our difficult time in making sure our father was well taken care of.
Julie Rodriguez (In Behalf of my father Carmen J. Rodriguez)
Want to extend our most heart warning thank you to Valden and all the staff at Dakan. You made our most difficult day warming and full of memories of our beloved father. There was no request denied and gave our mother the reassurance she needed.
Thank you and God Bless from all of Carmen J. Rodriguez children and wife.
Thank you so much for everything! You were GREAT to work with. I love your sense of humor even at a time of sorrow.
You gave us a sense of peace knowing you understand our belief of the after/life. Keep smiling.
We are always interested in hearing from the families that we serve. Please take a moment to let us know how well we served you in your time of need. We very much appreciate your feedback.
