VETERANS DESERVE EXTRA CARE

WE HAVE A DEEP-ROOTED LOVE FOR OUR VETERANS AND THE SACRIFICES THEY’VE MADE AND CONTINUE TO MAKE FOR THE BENEFIT OF ALL OF US”.  WE’LL ENSURE THAT ALL OF THE BENEFITS THAT THEY’VE EARNED AND ARE ENTITLED TO WILL BE CARRIED OUT AND THAT THEY WILL RECEIVE THEM” STATES BOB VAN STAALDUINEN OWNER AND FUNERAL DIRECTOR OF KNOLLCREST FUNERAL HOME.

Among those benefits Veterans are entitled to are; an American Flag, a headstone from the Veteran’s Administration, and a member of the Armed Services present to play “Taps” and present the American Flag to the family. Burial expenses are free of charge to Veteran’s, their spouse and dependent children at a National Cemetery, and we are blessed with the Abraham Lincoln National Cemetery nearby. Veterans and their families are often not aware of the earned benefits available to them in recognition for their service.

A Veteran is a special person who has earned extra time, effort and care when it comes time to honor their life, their service and their sacrifice. We recognize that here at Knollcrest. We always have and we always will. It’s our honor to serve Veterans and their families.  For a full explanation and consultation on Veteran’s benefits or any funeral services, contact us at 630-932-1500 or knollcrest@knollcrest.com

Knollcrest Lends A Helping Hand To Veterans

Knollcrest Went Out Of Their Way To Lend A Helping Hand To The Veterans

One might assume every funeral home goes the extra mile for the Veterans who’ve gone the extra mile for us. According to Marine Veteran Larry Olson, that’s not the case. After it was his privilege to take part in a memorial ceremony at Knollcrest to honor a fellow Vet, Mr. Olson stated, “I believe that Knollcrest went out their way to help us, lend a helping hand to the Veterans and they were very respectful. We don’t get that everywhere else”. They should. And here, they always will.

Why Knollcrest Takes Extra Care of the Veterans

When our veterans enlisted, they placed their lives on the line. They sacrificed many things for love of country and love of their countrymen. This sacrifice deserves our respect, and extra care in the services we provide them.

Knollcrest Funeral Home in Lombard makes sure every veteran receives all the benefits to which he or she is entitled, including an American Flag, a VA headstone, and a member of the Armed Forces present at each service to play “Taps” and present the American Flag to the family.

We highly encourage our local military families to choose Abraham Lincoln National Cemetery for their burials. We are blessed with national cemetery within driving distance, where all burial services are free of charge for a veteran, a veteran’s spouse, and a veteran’s dependent children.

Many veterans are unaware of the benefits available to them to honor their service. When it comes to taking care of veterans, we think the extra time and care required is an honor to provide.

Preplanned Arrangements can be a blessing for your family

 

As a very active part of many social groups and her church community, Florence Zaagman attends many visitations in Lombard at Knollcrest.  She and her husband are devoted to taking the time to comfort her friends and family–which are, to her, “one in the same”–from all over the western suburbs.  And that’s how the Knollcrest Family has really gotten to know her.  She pops in the office for a quick chat at countless visitations.

While we would say that Florence’s upbeat attitude is one of her most lovable qualities, she describes herself as a realist.  “You never really know when the Lord will call you home. It’s just smart to be ready,” says Florence. Her father passed away before her mother. In both cases, Florence’s parents opted to pre-plan their visitation and funeral arrangements. That made it easier for Florence and her family. So much easier, that Florence decided to do the same. “You can just connect with Bob and the staff at Knollcrest.” She adds, “It’s one less very important thing to worry about. Bob knows exactly what I want and I know he’ll take care of things for me”. Preplanning can be a comfort to everyone in your family. To discuss preplanned arrangements, (click here).
