To the staff -- I was in Eau Claire this past week for the visitiation and funeral of my sister, Audrey Brumberg. I am writing to express my sincere appreciation of the exceptional service provided by your organization.  All arrangements were done with great attention to detail. Everyone on your staff acted with compassion, kindness, and efficiency.  With inclement weather and poor street conditions, extra precautions and attention was given to the safety and comfort of all attendees. Your competence and professionalism along with great personal attention made it an occasion free of anxiety.

In gratitude, Barbara Karlan

Dear Brandon, Kari, and Mike,

Thank you so much for making this difficult time go smoothly for us. I couldn't have asked for a more beautiful setting and service for Mom. She would have been overwhelmed by how many people came and "simply" beautiful things were. 

Thanks again,

We had my mom's funeral today. I cannot express enough
how pleased we were with the compassionate, professional services we were
given. Brandon, Jared, Jim, and Mike were so nice to work with. They
answered questions before we could think of them. Although none of us wants
to plan a funeral, it is a reality, and I cannot imagine a better crew to
work with. Thank you gentlemen, you made a very tough week so much easier.

Dear Karolyn, Michael, and Brandon,

Thank you for your kindness and assistance in the arrangements for the funeral and memorial service for my brother, John, and for the manner in which you carried out all of the associated deatails.

In particular, I greatly appeciated Brandon's professionalism, knowledge and competence throughout the process. I appreciated his preceptiveness and ability to recognize, understand and guage out particular circumstances, and to help us in planning a funeral and memorial service that perfectly suited our needs and desires. He and Dick perfectly looked after every detail at the church, cemetery and resturant, discreetly and completely. Compliments to them both for their professionalism and their sensitivity.

You all worked together in a wonderful way to assist us in this difficult time.

Thank You,

Dear Kari, Mike, and Brandon,

My family and I are sincerely grateful for the way you carried us through Bill's funeral. Your attention to details, time, and your professionalism kept us on track even though our hearts were hurting.

Bill often used used the phrase "this needs to be done decently and in order." You folks summed up that phrase for Bill in the way you allowed him to keep his dignity even in death. I truly thank you for that.

I think that the Bible verse below says it beautifully. You perform your service so well.

God Bless.

Love in Jesus,

Vonnie

Mike,

Thank you again for operating such an awesome funeral home. The quality of service has not changed one bit in 6 years. You took wonderful care of Mom and turned her back into Mom - She looked just like herself. You make one of the most difficult situations in life somehow bearable. Your prescence is empathetic and calming. You take care of everything so quickly - it just flows. You disappear and then you reappear just at the perfect moment in time. Thank you Mike and Sawyer so much. You are both special people.

Penny, Randy, and family of Marion Davis, Eau Claire, WI.

Our family was extremely happy with their professionalism and kindnesses during such a difficult time in our lives. We will be forever grateful for their incredible service.

Denise Wurtzel, Eau Claire, WI

My family has done business with Fuller-Speckien-Hulke Funeral Home for decades. The service, professionalism and and compassion is outstanding and, quite honestly, hard to beat. We truly appreciatethe way they have handled many funerals for friends and family. They handle the families experiencing the natural grief process with dignity and respect, which we really appreciate. This last funeral that we are in the midst of coordinating has been so challenging and Mike and his team have gone over and above the call of duty to serve my family to help make this time less stressful. On behalf of the Toy and Gould families, I thank you! May the Lord richly bless the work you do. Family of Dana Kratochvil.

Bobbi Jo Toy, Eau Claire, WI

Mike and Brandon,

I am Larry Gibson's daughter. I wanted to thank you for the service you provided. It truly felt like you guys took care of every detail for us-big and small. You were both compassionate and professional and seemed to take the worries out of the details. One of you was there at every turn and seemed to even anticipate our needs (bottled water during visitation, etc.) You managed us and the crowd very well and coordinated with Pastor Graham on each part of the process. 

Thank you, thank you, thank you! May you be blessed, as we were blessed by your exceptional work!

Sincerely, Connie

Mike:

Thank you for all your help and guidance in handling the pre-planning of our mother's funeral and for the excellent care and follow-through upon her passing.

Your kindness and flexibility were surpassed only by your professionalism; you knew what questions to answer before we asked them and your handling of all the arrangements, red tape and paperwork was greatly appreciated.

Thanks to your staff and you in particular our time of sadness was made just a little bit brighter and easier.

Sincere Thanks,

Family of Carole A. Cook

Thank you and your staff for everything you did for our family. We are so appreciative of all you did to help us honor and memorialize our mom. We will be happy to offer any testimonials about the exemplary customer service and compassion you and your team extended to all of us! Every detail was tended to, from the memorial video, the yellow rose on the announcements, to your guidance of the family and even the Kleenex in the pews at church, so awesome.

Thanks much,

When my grandfather passed away, we turned to Fuller-Speckien-Hulke Funeral Home for his arrangements, which included a family visitation at the funeral home and memorial Mass to celebrate his life. I am blown away by the professional, knowledgeable, prompt, and compassionate services provided to us by Fuller-Speckien-Hulke. They took care of paperwork following his death, his cremation, flowers, display pictures, a memorial video, Mass planning, obituary publication, and everything in-between. We barely had to lift a finger during the whole process. Specifically, we worked one-on-one with Mike Hulke for many of the arrangements and he was my go-to guy for all questions, concerns, or problems that we faced during the planning of my grandfather's services. My only regret is that I did not invite him to take a plate of food at the funeral luncheon. I believe my grandfather, now in heaven, was honored by the professional care Fuller-Speckien-Hulke Funeral Home provided my family. I give them a high commendation and recommendation for their outstanding service to my family.

Mike, Kari, & Staff,

I would like to extend my heartfelt thank you for your compassionate guidance in handling the arrangements for Aunt Florence.  She looked so pretty-from her hair to her nails- in her favorite blue dress.  The arrangement with the red roses and baby's breath was absolutely beautiful.

Your compassion, kindness, and thoughtfulness in my time(s) of need (especially with Matthew and Gerry) will always be appreciated!

Have a great summer and best wishes.

We were impressed with your attention to detail and the respect you showed our mother and our family.  It gave us great comfort to see mom looking so beautiful from her hair to her nails.  Thank you for your guidance in planning the ceremony and making all the necessary arrangements.  We appreciate your sensitivity and thoughtfulness.

We will be forever grateful,

Dear Mike (and Family)

My family was extremely impressed with your management of the arrangements for mother and how you were able to accommodate all our desires given the short time frame.  We were surprised and pleased with how many persons were in attendance to support us and the way in which you unobtrusively met the needs of the growing group.

Personally, I appreciated all the help you gave me, beginning five years ago when you checked to make certain that there was room for mother next to my dad. You made it possible for mother's overall plan to come to fruition.  Further, I am grateful that you were able to meet with us on Sunday evening and allowed us to meet with Pastor David at your facility.  He was a perfect choice for our family; we really liked him and were pleased with his manner as he presided at the service and burial.

Thank you for making this experience, which could have been a trying one given the distance, transpire so smoothly.

Sincerely,

Sharon R. Wittren

I wanted to say thank you for the wonderful job you have done with helping us with EVERYTHING.  The funeral was beautiful with all her pink roses, the video was moving beyond words, I personally can not thank you enough for that and I know my family feels the same.  You have done a fantastic job in our time of need. Many thanks to you.

Greetings,  I am writing to tell you what a blessing you all were to my husband and I at Gordon Miller's funeral service. Even before the incident of the car keys, We noticed how friendly and helpful you were as we arrived a few minutes late, and then how quick you were to take care of our keys locked in our car.  My husband and I couldn't believe when you came to give him the keys. It all worked out so smoothly. We shall never forget it and thank the Lord for such kind and helpful people.
 
Many Thanks to all,

Dear Mr. Hulke,

The family of Ellen Bammel extends our sincere appreciation to you for assisting us with her funeral arrangements. The compassion and respect you showed for Ellen's life, in her death, was of great comfort to us. Ellen looked beautiful and very peaceful during our visitation at the church, and Steve Johnson of Holly Funeral Home complimented your work.
 

The Family of Ellen Bammel

I wanted to say thank you for the handling my Dad's (Wayne Devery) whole funeral the way you did. From the day we needed your services, to the day of his burial, You helped our family get through our most difficult time with your professionalism, organization, support, respect, ect. Thank you for guiding us through the whole experience with ease, which helped us to concentrate on our own grieving process without having to worry about what to do next. I know this is your job, but you made us feel like we were not just another client. You answered all my questions and allowed me to ask about things in detail that I needed to know! Thanks again!

Pam Kruchten

 It is with great pleasure that I recommend the services of the Fuller-Speckien-Hulke Funeral Home. During the recent death of my Mother, I was extremely pleased with the kind, thoughtful and sincere compassion Mr. Hulke displayed to my family. Since I live away from the area, it was indeed a tremendous comfort to have him lead us through the various options available regarding the funeral. Once decisions were made, the Fuller-Speckien-Hulke took care of all details. My many thanks to them for such fine service.

Dear Mike,

Dear Mike,
 
I just wanted to thank you and your team for all your help with the events surrounding my husbands' passing. Your professionalism was exceptional yet the thoughtfulness, concern, and caring that went into each and every decision was evidence of your sensitivity to peoples' needs during such difficult times. You are clearly the best at what you do, and I can't thank you enough. 
 
Sincerely,

Terry Moy Winter

Dear Mike,
 
I would never make it as a Hallmark verse writer but here goes:
 
I am having trouble coming up with the words to express how grateful I am for all of your help during this time. Your guidance through the process of vault, casket and flowers was most welcome. My Mom looked beautiful.....just like she was peacefully sleeping. Your calm demeanor, patience, and kindness spill over on to those that you are helping and make the entire ordeal a whole lot easier to cope with. I know that it is your job but you go above and beyond what is expected of you. You were always just a step away and seemed to anticipate anything and everything, which was truly a comfort. I can't sing either, but if I could, I would sing your praises loud and clear!!!
 
Thank you again, from the bottom of my heart. It is sort of strange to say but I hope that I don't have to see you again for quite a while.....but if I do, I will know that you are as much of a comfort to that family as you were to mine.
 
Sincerely,

Barb Ebert, Daughter of Roselaine McClellan

My sister and I would like to thank you for the kindness and sympathy you extended to us after the loss of our brother, Mark. It was such a shock for both of us and even now, there are times when it is hard to believe he is gone. We appreciate all you did to make sure our wishes were carried out and for handling, with tact and efficiency some of the small obstacles that presented themselves. You are a perfect fit for the profession you have chosen. Please extend our appreciation to the rest of the staff.
 
Sincerely,

Patricia Carr, Sister of Mark Sheils

Thank you for all that you have done for my family during the planning and holding of dad's funeral and beyond. Your kind heart and gentle soul shines through all of the grief and sadness you deal with. As I told you, you are definitely working in a field you are gifted at. You made all of the tough decisions easy and everything went so smoothly.
 
May God Bless You and your new family richly.

Nancie Grabow, Daughter of James Womac

Mike and Kari, 
 
Our family wants to thank you for your excellent service for our brother. Letting Mom come early to view him meant a lot to us. We appreciated your deep concern for our family. You made us feel so comfortable. We will miss Al "Rip" but will have good memories and know he is resting in peace.

The Family of Al Kinderman

As difficult as the loss of my grandmother has been, it was very comforting having your support through this process. You are a very compassionate and empathetic person, and on behalf of my entire family, we so appreciate all of your hard work and special details that helped bring some joy and happiness into our lives during this time of loss and grief that we’re experiencing.
 
 
Thanks again, Mike.

Family of Violet E. King

I can not tell you how much Josh and I appreciate everything that you did to help us make Myles' memorial the perfect tribute to him! All of the special touches you did to help us honor our little guy, such as the memorial DVD and memory portrait, were above and beyond anything we expected! I watch the memorial DVD often and am so grateful that you made it for us. The memory portrait is sitting on a display easel on top of our armoire in the living room where we can admire it often. I can not tell you how special it is to us! Your kindness, compassion, patience, and understanding helped guide us through the most difficult experience of our life. Thank you for treating us as if we were members of your own family!

Mike and Staff,

As I now have had a chance to look over my e-mails I find that my cousin in California forwarded me your site and Bill's obituary. I do appreciate that gesture far more than he will ever know.

We want to thank you for the most caring, gracious, kind manner that you guided us through this time of loss and your patience and understanding even when, especially myself, unable to think very well. The picture of Bill, which took my breath away when I first saw it, will always be dear to my heart and the video, which touched all who had a chance to see it. Please thank that individual that composed this so personally and so perfect in every way.

Thank you for all the extra thoughtfulness which I haven't even mentioned and again the kindness and graciousness to all of our family. So many said that they had a peace after being there and that adds to the wonderful memories to help comfort. 

God bless you all,

Jo Ann Burri and family

Just wanted to write and let you know how much Fuller Funeral home has helped our family out at such a difficult time. Starting in 1984, E Edna Radandt's (my Grandmother) death, then 1989 Edna L Radandt's (my Mom) death, then 1994 Henry F Radandt's (my Grandfather) death and now my Dad's death, Henry L "Hank" Radandt on 9/14/2007 Fuller Speckien has been there. Starting with people like Richard Keepers and on up the "ladder" with Jerry Speckien and now Mike Hulke, Fuller Funeral Home is a true Class Act. Each of You have the compassion and honest caring that families need in their time of sorrow and grief. I wanted to let you know how much it meant to me and Hank's entire family. 
 
Sincerely,

Sheryl Reidinger (Hank's daughter)

Good Morning Mike:
Just a note to thank you for the very professional funeral for my Father. Like my Mother's, we had many good comments about your organization. I know my brothers share in my thoughts.
 
Best Regards:

Bud Weingart

Mike, I want to thank you for all the professionalism, love and caring you showed during the handling of my Mother's funeral (Joyce H. Brenizer) You could say that is what you do, but I know better. People can say that I am a banker and that I get compensated to provide financial services to my clients, too But you do more than plan and execute funerals and help people walk through hours of endless details when their minds are fogged over with grief and emotion. You gave us all a gentle psychological hug and your respect for the finite details that mattered the most and to others would have seemed so trivial................like the dark nail polish that was my Mother's hallmark color. How you keep from burning out is only a miracle. You are truly a unique guy and the world is lucky having you do what you do. 

Thanks from the bottom of my heart for making her look like the beautiful classey lady that she always was on her last big day so she could go dancing with my Dad looking like a princess.

Brenda Schneider

Thank you so much for all you did when my mom passed away. You were very professional, yet compassionate. When I lost control of my emotions, you gently steered me back on the path so we could "get the job done." I hope you have a long and prosperous life in Eau Claire.
