“Death is no more than passing from one room into another. But there’s a difference for me, you know. Because in that other room I shall be able to see. “–Helen Keller
While there is nothing more certain than any person’s mortality, discussing it is something that is very difficult for most people to do.
Our Family Helps Yours.
At Knollcrest Funeral Home in Lombard, we understand how difficult this can be because we discuss this very thing every day. We are a full service, family-owned-and-operated funeral home, and have been since Bob & Elaine Van Staalduinen first opened Knollcrest’s doors in 1989. It used to be that every funeral home was family owned and operated. Today, that’s less likely, as more and more funeral homes and cemeteries are becoming corporate entities.
When we take your loved one into our care, we understand this is a trust. Whether we’ve known your family for years, or have yet to meet you, we understand that we are caring for you, family to family. We are your neighbors, fellow church members, and friends. We mourn the loss and celebrate the lives of all of the people we have the privilege of serving.
Easing Your Burden.
Death can be expected or sudden, a relief or a tragedy. Either way, there is no way to “prepare” for death. We cannot ease the loss of your loved one, but we can assure you that we can compassionately and professionally make all of the funeral arrangements. In the midst of often overwhelming grief, families must make a myriad of important decisions and preparations. Many families describe this time as being in a fog. It’s our hope to be your guide through this fog, and that when you look back on the journey; our support will have exceeded your expectations, eased your burden, and brought you to a safe place. Nothing is more important to us than to hear someone say that the funeral services we held to honor their loved one were more than a series of events, but rather, an experience that provided everything that they needed to reflect on their love and share their grief and loss with others.
We do this every day, for every family who puts their trust in us, yet we will never lose sight of how unique your loved one is to you. We are used to working with very short notice. We know exactly what to do. We’ll be with you the entire time, asking the right questions and answering yours. That’s really what we are here to do: take care of everything.
Our family welcomes your family whenever you need us. If that means a consultation on pre-need funeral services, we’re here. We offer many options for pre-planning services from which you can choose to take advantage. If it means contacting us at any time of day or night with the loss of your loved one, we’re ready to help you. We promise you that we will provide the right answers, the right environment, and the compassionate service you need.
