    Ron of Cochrane Country Funeral Home was very proffessional and compassonite of our circomstances and helped us get through a very tough time losing our son. If you want a personal touch without fear of gouging you at your weakest, Ron is the Man. Thank you sooo much Ron.

    Dear Ron,

    My best friend recently passed away and I was asked by the family to get prices, and other relevant arrangement information. Your firm was my third phone call. I appreciate the straight forward approach you offered. But I must say it wasn’t the price that was the deciding factor to choose your firm’s services. It was your flexibility and ability to make the family feel like they were the only family you were serving. I know for a fact you had several arrangements on the go at the same time.

    Ron please accept my sincere thanks for assisting, helping and guiding my best friend’s family through a extraordinarily difficult time.

    Respectfully,
    Brian Crawford.

    Just a note to Ron at Cochrane Country Funeral Home. The family cannot thank you enough for your prompt, professional service with regard to my Dad’s arrangements. I would recommend your company over any other to anyone who is in need of funeral services help. Your straightforward approach to helping your customers is very refreshing and welcome at a time when things can be trying to say the least.

    Thank you for all your help.

    Dear Gary,
    Thank you so much for your thoughtfulness and prpfessionalism as you handled Rick’s funeral/memorial. It was so comforting to know that while this is your job, you also know just what it feels like to go through this loss! Your tender care of us (and Rick) was evident.

    Hello Mr. Fitzpatrick!

    I am one of your former clients (Renate Bischof, May 2011). I know it’s been nearly a year, I’ve finally gotten around to writing something up.
    You are honest, professional, and thorough and I am truly grateful I ended up at your place when I was looking for the “other one”.

    Thanks again for taking such good care of us.
    -Katrin

    When my mom passed away in May 2011, I really had no experience or ideas with how to handle what needed to happen next. My brother and only sibling had passed away less than 4 months before, so I really had no-one I could turn to for help. The hospice where my mom spent her last day was very kind and helped out by starting the process. They arranged for my mom’s remains to be delivered to a funeral home and explained to me that I could make the rest of the arrangements with them. I made an appointment to see them and went to find their office.

    Cochrane is a small place and I assumed there was only one funeral home. I had some trouble finding the place and ended up at the “other” funeral home. I went in anyways to see if they could tell me where I needed to go. There I met Mr. Fitzpatrick, who was busy with another client. With the other client’s permission, he came to talk to me. He told me where the other place was, and then gave what turned out to be excellent advice. He told me some things to ask about and look out for because, it turns out, many funeral homes will *not* tell you what all your options are. They will politely steer you towards the package that they want you to buy without telling you about others. He also told me I was under NO obligation to stay with the other funeral home. I told him we were looking for a simple cremation, and he told me what it *should* cost. Then he told me what the other guys were likely to charge. That turned out to be EXACTLY what I needed to know.

    Mr. Fitzpatrick was exactly right.

    When I went to the other place for my appointment, they started filling out forms and making all kinds of suggestions (gently, but persistently nonetheless) about what I would want.

    We ended up going back to see Mr. Fitzpatrick and he treated us with the utmost sensitivity and kindness. He helped us make exactly the arrangements we wanted at a very reasonable price. He is highly professional while still retaining small-town friendliness; he’s knowledgeable, and trustworthy.

    I know most people don’t spend much time thinking about funerals and final arrangements, but if you ever find yourself in need of funeral services, I highly recommend going to Cochrane Country Funeral Home. I could not have asked for better treatment.

    Thanks Mr. Fitzpatrick!
