As the weeks and months pass, we are more and more grateful that we chose you to handle the arrangements for Hayden. We couldn't be more pleased with how everything went and we constantly hear from people who attended the service about how beautiful it was. Thanks for your part in that. We will never forget your care of our family.

Well, where do I begin. I want to thank you Todd, and all of your staff for the wonderful Memorial service for my sister Fran Morris. I did not expect anything less than what we got, and it was heart felt. Just like the service for my mom in 2005, the service for my brother at your place in Brooklyn in September....thank you. Our entire family and all of our friends that came, were very impressed with the Memorial. They all wanted to thank ME for everything being so beautiful, but really, I just handed it all over to you and boom, it was done. Give that "crew" of yours a big hug for me, will you? I really appreciated everything you all did to make Fran's farewell just so special.

I've known Todd Borek for many years and I know that God called him to this vocation of supporting those who grieve; he has a special gift. My mother died very recently and we went to Todd because I knew he'd be the best. And I was right. Not only were the finest pragmatic details taken care of completely by Borek Jennings' amazing staff, but Todd was a true God-send in our time of need. We were very blessed that they were there for us.

On 10/15/15 I attended Todd Borek's presentation at St Mary Magdalen-Brighton sponsored by the parish Befriender Ministry. It was titled "Taste the Wine of Healing." Todd explained the universal experience the first 3-10 days after the loss of a loved one-- the "Acute Loss Phase"--& why it is essential to complete that phase before healing can begin. The visual presentation was very professional & it was obvious Todd had covered this material many times. The comparisons to the universal American experience of September 11 (2001) made it easy to comprehend the stages of the Acute Loss Phase & prove they really are universal. What appealed to me the most about the presentation was how Todd's explanations of the Acute Loss Phase proved we are made for community & how essential it is to "be present" to those experiencing the loss of a loved one & to allow others to "be present" to us when experiencing the loss of a loved one. It was also interesting to realize the Acute Loss Phase happens not only in the loss of a loved one, but in any serious loss: loss of a job; loss of health; divorce, moving, etc. I thank & commend Karl Jennings & Todd Borek for studying the healing process after the loss of a loved one & for presenting a new model of care for healing to funeral directors across the US. When people face death with truth it restores the dignity of life.

It is difficult indeed to put our thoughts into words at this time, but the kind and gentle ways our family felt as we were guided through the process of what seemed to be the most challenging time any of us had ever experienced. When we were leaving, I remember us thinking as we were driving away comforted in knowing, "finally mom is in the hands of people who will take good care of her." for that we thank everyone at Borek - Jennings, we could never put into words what that ment to us. A special thank you to Ryan and Devon for holding our Mother and her memories in the highest regard, allowing us to honor her in such a special way... Just like her. We will always feel blessed that we had your support and guidance at such a difficult time. With heartfelt thanks!! The family of Donna Reid
