We were very happy with the cooperation and help that we received during my Aunt's passing. Everyone was very kind and cooperative. My family was very pleased of how you received my Aunt and took care of all the planning and how Elma looked so very natural. She would have been pleased.
You and your family of caring people made this a very calming experience.
Thank You for your time and caring. From the family of Elma Semmons

I love working with the staff at Nishna Valley! Everyone is so thoughtful and considerate. They accommodated every need and then some. I have already started making plans for myself and I will be requesting Nishna Valley Funeral in my arrangements.
Thank You Pat and Staff for all you do.

It was a wonderful (as wonderful as it can be, of course) experience. Very easy. The funeral director was very down to earth and I could tell this was more than just a job and that he has a "passion" for the business and for helping people and is genuinely interested. The obituary was wonderful and we have been to a previous service, they performed. Also the little touches, like the rose, and thinking to save a lock of hair, really help.

We are all very pleased with all of your caring staff through our difficult time. Everyone was very caring, thoughtful, helpful and accommodating.
We couldn't be more pleased with the service that you all provided. You did an excellent job with our Mom and the whole service.
Thank you so much for everything that you did.

I felt that Pat and the staff were very accommodating. Pat was quick to respond to texts and calls. He was able to arrange our private viewing with another visitation going on at the Funeral Home at the same time. Very sympathetic to the emotions we were going through. Couldn't have asked for a better person to assist us during this difficult time.

You and the staff did an outstanding job from the beginning to the end. For that reason I decided to pre-plan my funeral.
I have been blessed doing business with you in this sad time, but also consider you a personal friend.
Thanks Much.

Pat & Staff,
I don't know where to even begin in thanking all of you for the wonderful care you gave us, in coping with my Mom's passing. The patience, time and compassion was truly remarkable. You went over and beyond any expectation that we had. All the extras you did will always be cherished. We are very fortunate to have your business in this community. Once again, my family and I thank you and appreciate all you did for us.

Pat and staff did a fabulous job fulfilling all our needs. The placemats at the funeral luncheon were unexpected and much appreciated. Having Pat know our family personally helped us feel we were in good hands and his writing skills are phenomenal! Speaking with Barb Cox helped us feel right at home as well. Working with Linda Washburn during the preneed phase was superb. Our family really is impressed with everything. Our mom's services were the most beautiful most of us have ever experienced for a visitation, rosary and funeral... and we received that same feedback from others. Thank you for your excellent service and thinking about details before we thought about them.

All of the staff was very caring and accepting of anything we asked. Met with us in the evening to make more thank you notes available.

Our family was very pleased with the arrangements made and the staff's willingness to stay longer for our visitation than scheduled!!!

I was very pleased with the way you have been there during and after the service and how you are still there for me when I still need something. I have really appreciated how you have taken time out of your busy schedule to talk to me with any concerns I have had. Even after everything is done with the arrangements for the service.

Thank you very much.

Pat Leece is the most caring person. He worked miracles in making mom look like her old self. He came all the way to Lincoln to pick up mom and was so attentive and caring. He is truly a special person and made the death of our loved one a time of peace and not of worry. No words can truly express how much we appreciated everything that Pat and his staff did for us! Thank you.

Pat and Staff,
Words can't express how much we were thankful that you were there for us after Bob's death. It was a shock and you knew what to do for us to make it easier.
Thank you, Pat, for everything you did. For the ride to Green Plains, by our house, the orange slices, and most of all for having his semi there. It really helped for closure. Thanks again...

They went above & beyond what I expected, by first driving in the middle of the night to Omaha to get Alan. Pat did such a good job making him look better than any of us expected. All the staff was so kind & comforting to us. They worked many hours to move everything from the funeral home to the Essex school. At our lunch there were personalized placemats in memory of Alan. When we got to the cemetery there were more surprises. They had an American flag and a Nebraska Cornhusker flag up. They had painted the vault red & made a memory plaque that sat in-front of the vault. Alan would have loved it. We can’t thank them enough for all they did to make it perfect. This made our loss a little easier to bare.

All of the staff were genuinely caring and helpful at this difficult time. Everyone was very supportive of all details of the service as requested by my husband.

I would be more than glad to recommend my friends and family to use your funeral home.
