Our family was very grateful for the wonderful care they bestowed on our mother after her passing. Their compassion for the deceased and his/her family was astounding. We didn't worry for a minute about arrangements or services. They did it all. Meant the world to us that we could take comfort in the fact that our mother was in blessed hands. Thank you.

I just want to thank Wright & Salmon for all they did to help us with the funeral arrangements for our father. It all had to be done "long distance" and it went smoothly without a glitch. Thank you so much for helping us through this difficult time. Mary E.

The Helderle family would like to express our thanks to Matt Salmon and the entire Wright & Salmon staff, for handling all aspects of O. G. (Ollie) Helderle's funeral, in such a compassionate and professional manner. It was very comforting to our family that everything was thought out and coordinated so thoroughly. Those attending told us it was a beautiful ceremony celebrating a great life well lived by a wonderful father. Your guidance throughout the process, and your preparations and presence the day of the funeral, were invaluable. Thank you. Jim Helderle

Thank you for your kindness and professionalism guiding us through the process of the death certificate, obituary and Funeral Service. Your understanding and willingness to work with our requests was incredible, you accommodated each and every one. There were many things we had not even thought about, and you made the decision making process much easier-thanks to your knowledge and professional guidance. We were grateful that you helped as pallbearers and it was very nice that you offered each of us to take a rose as a token from the floral spray. Your team made a very momentous event in our lives less stressful. Thank you

The Smith and Kelly families are so grateful to Wright & Salmon for everything they did to help us with the arrangements for the funeral of my mother, Mickey Kelly. They made sure we covered all bases by guiding us through every detail of the arrangements. We certainly feel that the funeral we planned with them was exactly what my mother would have wanted. It was because of their guidance that it was accomplished so easily. It is such a difficult time and I don't believe that without Wright & Salmon that we could have managed all the details of her funeral and burial. They are professional and a great source of support for families who have lost a loved one. Thank you so much for all you did for our family.

While these things are never easy, they guided our family through each step, making very thoughtful suggestions and paying great attention to even the tiniest of details, transforming a family tragedy into a beautiful and memorable celebration of Susan’s life.

Matt, Tim, and Mike, Thanks so much for all you have done for our family in the last week. Your care and concern, support with the planning, flexibility to accept the enhanced transportation to the cemetery, and professional approach made it very easy for us to celebrate Dad's life. He looked great in his familiar sweater vest, was absolutely at peace, and ready to go Home. You guys are first class. On behalf of my Mom, my siblings, and the entire O'Brien clan - Thank you Steve

To the staff at Wright & Salmon: Just wanted to let you know how comforting and accommodating your services for our dad, Silvio Matarelli were. To have all the questions answered and details attended to at such an emotional time was invaluable. My greatest fear and concern was that dad would not look like himself. I was so apprehensive to view him. However, I received instant closure when I saw him, looking so peaceful and handsome. Thank you so much. Sincerely, Marli and Family

I can't say enough about Wright & Salmon. I've known them over the years and have been to many, many services there. They are the utmost in my opinion. Until now though have not personally had to use their services. I can't say enough about their caring & compassion to our family. Very accommodating and easy to work with. Would never use anyone else. Thank you for everything!
