    My sympathy to all of you! I remember Lyle and Leon fondly! I worked for Doc Lemanski (Large animal Vet in Verona). Doc and I bought a Holstein bull from them! Both boys were always smiling and laughing! Leon didn't say a whole lot, but I vividly remember him constantly saying "THAT'S RIGHT, LY !!!!"

    Even tho many years have gone by, I have fond memories as a young girl cousin visiting Uncle Rueben, Aunt Selma, Lyle and brothers at their farm. Sharon Padrutt Savage

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.
