Glueckert FH Holiday Remembrance 2016

 

“It’s our opportunity to let our families know how much they mean to us” says Jackie Glueckert of the Holiday Remembrance Ceremony that is an annual event at Glueckert Funeral Home the first Saturday of each December.

“People tell us how much it means to them. It means every bit as much to us here” confirms John Glueckert, Jr.

“To see everyone again comforting one another is special. We look forward to this all year” adds Marcie Glueckert Heidkamp.

Every family who entrusts their loved one to the Glueckert Family and the professional staff there is special to us. This ceremony gives us another opportunity to celebrate the lives of our loved ones and the families we serve. It is such a privilege and an honor for us to assist families at difficult times. Our Holiday Remembrance is meant to offer some strength to families coping with loss, and we know the most difficult steps many people take are the ones back into a funeral home after a loss. When people leave this ceremony with a sense of a burden being lifted, even a little bit, we realize that the journey is continuing and the occasions to celebrate loved ones are special. So, join us every time. We love having your loved one’s ornament on our tree through the holidays. We love seeing all of you again. We’re honored by you! Thank you.

 

Save the date for 2017. December 2, 2017.

On December 5, 2015 at 3:30 pm, Glueckert Funeral Home will host a Holiday Remembrance Service for all those who have lost a loved one this year or in years past.

The holidays can be a particularly difficult time to cope with the loss of a loved one.  It is Glueckert Funeral Home’s hope that its Holiday Remembrance Service will provide a comforting forum in which families can come together to express their grief and to find peace during this challenging season.  The Service will include special music, memorial readings and lighting of candles in remembrance of those who have passed on.

Families in attendance at the Holiday Remembrance Service will also be presented with a complimentary snowflake photo ornament of their loved one, along with a glass luminary.

The Service is open to all members of the community who have lost loved ones; not just those who have been served by Glueckert Funeral Home.  For more information or to RSVP and reserve a personalized photo ornament, please visit  www.GlueckertFH.com or call Jackie at (847)253-0168.

 

Famous Harry’s Famous Hot Dogs Visitation at Glueckert Funeral Home.

 

“My dad was a funny, funny guy. We wanted to honor him in a special way. When we asked Sam Resch at Glueckert Funeral Home if Harry’s grandchildren could set up a hot dog stand in the family coffee room, he told us, ‘it’s a first, but I don’t see why not’. It was such a wonderful way to remember him for us” stated Anne Noffert.

There is always sadness when someone special leaves us, but the most important reason for visitation is to remember and celebrate the life of your loved one. To do so in a unique and special way is something we will do our best to help you with. So, if that means we have Famous Harry’s Hot Dog Stand right here at Glueckert’s, we relish the thought.

It’s an honor for us to serve all of the families who put their confidence and trust in us. If we can be of assistance or answer any questions, call us at 847-253-0168 or visit us at http://www.glueckertfuneralhome.com

We can help with pre-need or at-need services and are here to serve you any time of day or night.

Prearrangements Are Becoming More Commonplace

More often people are deciding to do some level of pre-planning of their funeral services. This can be as simple as getting some preferences down on paper, more extensive planning or prefunding the expense as part of an overall financial planning strategy. In any case, there is as much flexibility to this process as a family or individual desires. If circumstances change or preferences change, pre-planned services can easily take into account those changes.

One of Glueckert Funeral Homes’ Managers and Funeral Director, Tom Gotlund, is a specialist in Pre-planning. “People want to be comfortable with our staff, our facility and their decisions. We’re there to answer the questions” states Tom, adding “there is a sense of relief among many people feeling they’ve taken a burden away from their family by prearranging”.

Matthew Bennett is one of our Managers and Funeral Directors. In his words “What separates us from other Funeral Homes is what happens from Point A to Point B. We have the ability, resources and freedom to meet the customized needs a family desires. For me that’s the big reward, being able to listen to the family and specialize what they want their services to be”.
