    To Pat and the children. Very sorry to see of Chuck passing. I always enjoyed working with him. He was very talented and intelligent. I was amazed he was that old. Whenever I would run in to him, the last time was at the Eastridge Center in Eau Claire he always seemed ageless. With sympathy Dave and Naomi Oatman.

    Aunt Patty and Cousins, very sorry for your loss. Uncle Chuck always made me laugh and was the best at telling stories. RIP Uncle Chuck. Miss you.

what our families say

Tiffany Foster went out of her way to fulfill all my requests, talked me through problems I was facing, and tried to make me feel as comfortable as possible when I was a wreck, totally crushed, and I thank her with all of my heart for that.

The professional manner of the staff made a difficult time a little easier.

Services provided for both parents were perfect, on time, and no issues. Brenda is awesome and strong!

Skyler was absolutely amazing. She was so caring and helpful through this whole process. She even went above and beyond to meet with us in DeForest and even to make a stop at our home to drop off or pick up anything needed. While it was a small gesture, it was so helpful and greatly appreciated.
