Thank you Jeremy, Shelley and Kate for everything you did to make Roger's service so very special. Your extra attention to all the many details and the extra things you did will always be remembered and appreciated. You brought comfort to the entire family at a very difficult time. No words can adequately express all the compassion and understanding you showed us when we were grieving and trying to make decisions. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for making Roger's passing a little more bearable. Diana Peck

Our family is grateful to have Jeremy and the staff of Cranston Family Funeral Home in the Fairfield community. Jeremy and his staff quickly became an extension of our family as we navigated the days following Dad’s passing. We appreciated their professionalism, patience, attention to detail and compassion as they helped us honor our father. Thank you. - Susan Hervey, daughter of Leonard Mosinski

We want to thank you for the care and concern you extended to our family during the planning of the service for Windy Jamison. There wasn't a thing in the planning for the service that was not taken care of with thoughtfulness. You made every thing happen with ease and efficiency.

We could not have asked for better service for Dennis’ father, Denver Ostrander’s funeral, than what we received from Jeremy Cranston and his staff at Cranston Family Funeral Home. His caring attitude and attention to detail was so much appreciated. He kept in constant contact with us, as we finalized plans, and made us feel as if Denver was part of his own family. What a gem of a family to have in the community to help us out during some of our darkest and most confusing times in our lives. We had never met Jeremy before this, and have come away feeling that we have made a new family friend. Thank you Jeremy and your whole staff. Peggy & Dennis Ostrander

The first descriptor that comes to mind when I think of Jeremy and Cranston Family Funeral Home, IS family. From the first phone call, letting Jeremy know he was needed, he became like family ; so patient, and so comforting. Jeremy was truly knowledgeable and accessible, and answered our multiple calls and questions immediately. We felt like we were the only ones he was working with at the time. He made the whole experience of having just lost someone so dear, bearable. He gently guided us through the process, resulting in a service that we are very proud of. I cannot say enough about the genuine care and concern Jeremy provided for our family. We have only the most sincere thanks and gratitude for Jeremy and Cranston Family Funeral Home. We highly recommend them for when there is a loss. They are incredible

Jeremy and his staff could have not been more accommodating. Their help and assistance both pre and post funeral was excellent. Jeremy was so easy to communicate with and so comforting to me and my family. I feel I have found a Fairfield friend in Jeremy and will keep in touch when visiting Fairfield. In short, although this event was by far one of the saddest in my life, the Cranston staff made it bearable.

We were so happy with Dad's funeral. Jeremy and staff made eveyrthing so easy and understandable. We felt like we didn't have to do anything extra because it was all done. This was so refreshing to us. Thank you, thank you, and thank you again.

Words don't begin to express the appreciation we have for Jeremy, Shelley, and Marvin. Jeremy put us at ease from the first phone call, he followed through with everything he said he would do, and he had great input and ideas for us--very helpful. We came through a difficult time feeling like we had made new friends.

When the funeral service is over and you going home thinking..... There is not one thing we would change about the preparations, the visitation or the funeral service........ you know you have received fine services. Jeremy and his staff listened, advised and performed very well. We certainly appreciate what they have done for our family at a difficult time in our lives.

Dave Dickey

My Mother recently passed away. Our family had been patrons of Raymond’s Funeral Home. When my Mother Dorothy Middlekoop recently passed away, we weren’t sure where we would go for her services as Jeremy was an unknown to us. We met him the night our Mother passed away. Our family was impressed with Jeremy’s professionalism and compassion. These qualities were demonstrated throughout the process of arranging a funeral service for our Mother. The result was a perfect final memorial for our Mother. That in and of itself was a huge comfort for our family. Thank you so much!

The Family of Dorothy Middlekoop

Our family would like to express our deepest gratitude to Jeremy and the Cranston Family Funeral Home for the personal, sincere, and heartfelt care you provided to us during this difficult time. We are forever grateful for the attention to detail that you provided; from the amazing obituary you authored that captured dad’s life so well, for being willing to hold the service in an unconventional location, and the multitude of additional personal touches. You took such good care of us all during our time of grief.

Fred Carter Family

I wanted to drop a note to let you know how terrific you were with all the arrangements for my father's visitation, funeral and burial. Our family had discussed how we were going to handle the arrangements and all the decisions since our father had taken care of that when our mother passed away. You made things so easy and convenient for our family. It relieved a lot of stress and anxiety at a time in our lives that we didn't need that. Michelle and I were so comfortable the first time we sat down with you at the funeral home. I can remember leaving and telling Michelle what a big sigh of relief it is, and how at that point I knew the process was going to be okay. We also felt we made a new friend as well. Thank you so much for everything you and your staff did.

Rob Higgins

We would like to thank the Cranston Family Funeral Home and staff for their excellent care during the funeral arrangements for our Dad. They were very professional, and had the gift of compassion. We appreciated their knowledge and advice during the funeral arrangements. Jeremy was very quick to respond to any question or request we had, and anticipated all of our needs. Their attention to details was so helpful and comforting. We would also like to mention the updates done to the Eldon funeral home. The remodel provided a warm and beautiful atmosphere.

Roy Potts Family

On behalf of my entire family, we extend our gratitude to Jeremy and his staff for their professional service and compassion that was shown to my family and me during a sad time in our lives. We were impressed with Jeremy's responsiveness and adaptability with any requests that we made. During such a difficult time, Jeremy was joy to work with.
