Funeral director Alan Laumer was so accommodating, so helpful, so consoling. We experienced a tragic, unexpected death, and Mr. Laumer went above and beyond to help us through this difficult time. Alan is currently also assisting us with the headstone and burial. David and the other staff members at Busch have also been very helpful and accommodating. I don't know what I would have done had it not been for everyone at Busch. The service given cannot be measured on a scale.

The attention to detail was excellent. I felt like we were the only grieving people and not just one of many. I felt totally cared for. Celebrant Amy incorporated personal touches that we shared during our meeting. The prayer cards were special.

Because of the knowledge, kindness, attentiveness and genuineness of the staff one feels “at home” with your staff who work together so well. Megan Lewis and preplanning advisor Julie Skinner were extremely helpful, knowledgeable, sincere and personable. The Avon Lake site is comforting. Your funeral home and services are the best of any I have dealt with in the past. Keep on doing what you do.
