We receive many letters from the families we've served, thanking us for our caring ways during their time of loss. Their words warm our hearts, and speak to you of our professionalism, compassion, and the true value of the services we provide.

Thank you so much for all you did for us during Tom's passing. I could not have been more pleased. I was so proud of how everything was handled and presented. Thank you so much. Love, The Tom Austin Family

The entire staff was very professional and focused on our personal concerns. It's most helpful to have someone keep everything organized and focused. Anticipating family needs is also a big help, and guiding the decision process.

The Family of James Alvin Brock

Thank you so much for all you did for us. It's hard to believe people can laugh while planning a funeral, but you made us feel at ease and comfortable. Mom looked great! Mom looked great!! Thank you for your attention to details. Mom always said she liked you and was impressed with the way you handled things. Now I understand why. Mom was a very smart lady and a very good judge of character. She always called things the way she saw them...and once again she was right.

Bill, I was so impressed with the care and respect you gave my mother when you took her from her home the night she died. She was treated as a "human'" and was treated as if she was a member of your family - Thank you so much for that moment. It was the closure I needed to say good bye. The prayer and respect you showed her will always be remembered. I have shared this story of your care with everyone I talk to now. I was greatly touched.

The Family of Irene Brown Price

Dear, Bill, Amy & Barbie, Pat and I appreciate everything you and your staff have done for us. Your calm professional and very caring actions helped us plan our Father's funeral in a way that gave us such a peace of mind that our words can not express. So, we would just like to express our thanks to you for caring about us and helping us through this difficult time. In Christian Love, Carol & Pat

Dear Bill and Amy, Just a note to say thank you for all you have done for our family. Mom's funeral was beautiful and Baumgartner handled everything just right. From the time we called you to let you know of mom's passing, you took extra special care of her and also the family. For that, we will be forever grateful! Love, Shann & Glenn

Dear Mr. Baumgartner and Staff, I want to express my gratitude for the way you handled Baby William Lewis Pope's Funeral on Wednesday, February 15. You did such a nice job. I know you are in the business of Funerals but everyone was so nice, helpful and respectful. Jeannie (Will's Mom) shared with me how you personally made the cost reasonable and I am grateful for that as well. As Will was hospitalized for his entire life, there will be some bills and it was very kind of you to be so generous with Jeannie and David. I know, now, why David chose you instead of one of the Funeral Homes in Monroe. Again, thank you for doing such a good job. Most Sincerely, Suzanne Sampson (Jeannie Pope's Sister)

Having grown up in Pageland and having family here all my life, I thought we were lucky to have the Sutton's, but the Baumgartner's have gone beyond. Trust is very important in times like this and I trust the Baumgartner's.

The Family of Hal Steven McManus

This was the first time I ever planned a funeral and was very nervous. Bill made us very comfortable and went out of his way to make us happy. He also went out of his way to find the casket we wanted for our Son. I finally did it...I sat down this morning and went through the guest book comments sent to us last year when Chase died. It took me a year to bring myself to do it...We received 100's of cards since his death and we thank you for the encouragement and prayers...The 12 pages of comments on the Baumgartner website were very kind...Thank you...The people at Baumgartner Funeral Home have been amazing. They were not only there for the funeral but have been so uplifting this past year. Your thoughtfulness and caring make you more than a Funeral Home. It makes you part of our family and our community. Thanks to everyone at Baumgartner for all the little things.

The Family of Chase Alexander Arant

Thank you so much for the very personable services you provided for our family. Although this is a sad time for all of us, we find comfort in knowing Mama's services were so well carried out and would have pleased her. Your thoughtfulness and support during this difficult time has been a true blessing on our family. Just a note to let you know how much our family appreciates the inspirational volume, " Lift Up Thine Eyes" that you sent to us. I'm sure it will provide strength in the days ahead. Also, special thanks for the excellent service rendered to our family. We were pleased with everything.
