A FLORAL EXPERIENCE BEYOND ANY OUR FAMILY FUNERAL HOME HAS EVER SEEN OR PROVIDED

It isn’t unusual to see generous family members sending flowers to Memorial Services of Loved ones. We have many services with many beautiful displays. 

Recently a family who were born in Japan and have many relatives there trusted us with a Memorial Service for a loving wife and mother, business associate and business owner. And a very dear friend to many more. Many “of the many” were an ocean apart when they were made aware of the passing of their dear friend. Glueckert Funeral Home maintains its own exclusive Flower Service and were advised early on that the flower response could be quite a bit larger than the norm. In consultation with her provider Jim, Jackie Glueckert assured them they would do everything possible to meet the demand and exceed their expectations of quality. 

Then the orders started arriving. And arriving. And kept arriving!  By the day of the Memorial Service, there were 140 large pedestal displays, baskets, easel sprays, and urn sprays to be created and delivered. Every piece was a display piece. There is a tradition in her home country of providing a lush array of flowers for these services. Meeting the desire for this tradition required remarkable logistics from collating the orders to ensure none were missed, rechecking them daily, ordering the flowers to create the arrangements, and finally delivering them to the chapel and making sure every one of them included the associated cards and wishes included from the families and friends abroad! 

In total, the delivery of all these displays required 7 vehicles (including 2 of the Glueckert family’s full size delivery vans) making 3 trips the day prior and 3 full size delivery vans the day of the memorial to finish up. Jackie’s son Riley and his girlfriend Brooke did amazing job,  driving and filling 2 of the vans, and the flower personnel worked both endsloading and unloading, doing some finishing touches and repair work, and helping to place individual cards and ribbons on every single piece. Because of the nature of the size and scope of this panoramic display, which would fill 3 chapel spaces and the full length of the lobby area, every person assisting understood the special and unique circumstance they were in and were in full anticipation of what the appearance would be when all of the pieces were properly placed. 

Wow. Just wow. No video or pictures could do justice to the environment that was created. We were proud of the fact we were able to provide this family what they desired and asked for. We’ve never seen anything like this before. But when we did….we knew we were seeing something special. It was amazing. It’s likely this experience has taught us something about what can be accomplished when so many dedicated people rise to the occasion to honor the request of a family, whose family and friends are half a world apart, yet still forever in their hearts!

PRE-PLANNING HELPS START THE DIALOGUE

Funeral Director Chris Mayer of Glueckert Funeral Home states it very well: “When it comes to pre-planning, the greatest benefit is; that it starts a dialogue. People have a lot of options and frankly a number of decisions to make.  Pre-Planning most often involves a person assisting in making decisions for themselves, which helps the loved ones around them know they are making the choices their loved one preferred. Many Financial Planners include pre-need discussions and plans in their portfolios. It’s sound financial planning and more importantly it offers a high level of peace of mind to your family. 

At Glueckert Funeral Home, you are always welcome to a complimentary, and no obligation consultation with Chris Mayer, or any of our Professional Funeral Directors about Pre-Planning or At-Need Arrangements. We’re always here.

Feel free to contact us at 847.253.0168 or www.glueckertfuneralhome.com Our promise is to be there for you.

OUR PRECAUTIONS WITH THE COVID-19 CORONAVIRUS

Dear Family and Friends,
With the heightened awareness and concern over the COVID-19 Coronavirus, we have taken additional steps to prevent its spread at Glueckert Funeral Home. We realize how important the visitation, memorial and funeral services are to families and those who wish to comfort families, celebrate life and pay final respects. We have taken as many precautions as we can to ensure the safety of those visiting us as we can.


Here are some of the many precautions we have taken at a heightened level:

• We are regularly disinfecting any door handles, knobs, push panels or other entry surfaces.

• We have ample supply and locations of disinfectant lotion at the entrance to our gathering spaces and chapels.

• We have provided ample space for “social-distancing” in any lines or seating space in our chapels.

• Every flat surface is being regularly addressed with disinfectant cleanser or polish throughout the day and evening.

• All of our furniture and chairs are wiped down continuously with anti-bacterial hygienic cleansers, mists or other treatments to ensure disinfectant surfaces.

• Our staff is welcoming all of our families and guests with a non-physical contact gesture (this is a hard one but we understand how important it is, and encourage everyone to do the same)

• We have advised our entire staff to immediately alert us if they feel symptomatic of this virus or any other, so they can immediately recuse themselves from any contact.

• If any family or guests are feeling any symptoms, we know families will understand the need for them not to be in a public space. We encourage you to go to our website https://www.glueckertfuneralhome.com/obituaries/obituary-listings or our Facebook page where nearly every obituary is posted https://www.facebook.com/GlueckertFuneralHome and take advantage of the memorial tribute wall or leave a Facebook post with your message of comfort. Families will understand and appreciate your comforting messages.


We are fully dedicated to taking care of each other during this especially difficult time in our communities. We fully
grasp the need for extra caution. If we can answer any questions or be of any additional help, please contact us at
Info@GlueckertFH.com


Together we can comfort families and one another!
