Todd and his Team were exceptional. Not only were we pleased and impressed, but so were our relatives who attended the visitation and funeral Mass. The level of care and respect that they provided to our entire family including our family's young children was remarkable. Thank you Todd and Borek Jennings Team.
Good morning, You took care of my mother Connie Melchert. I so appreciate everything that you all did making it such a beautiful experience and a great memorial to her. I do appreciate everything. Thank you Sharon Elkins
I want to Thank You Todd Borek and your staff, for the wonderful care and support you showed my very dear friend's family as they suffered and mourned the loss of their beloved mother. Your compassionate professionalism kept them safe and secure at a time when surviving was all that they knew. Thank You.
While it is difficult to put into words what ones heart feels after the loss of a loved one, I can start by thinking you, Todd Borek, for not o nly your expertise in guiding my family and I though making just the right arrangements for our loved one, but also for your sincere compassion and heartfelt care during this entire process. todd is like being with your dearest friend. You and your entire staff truly are the best. You go above and beyond in your willingness to help ease the discomfort of losing a loved one. The informational packet given us for what to expect after has also been so very helpful. I can't Express enough how very thoughtful everything you do has been for not just me but for you family as well. we immediately knew we made the right decision in coming to Borek Jennings, Hamburg Chapel. The minute we approached the doors of your funeral home, we were greeted with a smile, kind words, and guidance by one of your staff members. We heard from so may how ours was the most tender, loveliest funeral ever attended. It all just flowed so beautifully. Leaving our loved on in your hands has given us all the confidence that my husband, wonderful father, grandfather and friend to all he met is without a doubt resting in peace. Than you so very much.
"I'm at a loss for words to try and fully express our gratitude to you and your staff, but I am going to try. Thank you for all you did for us. I know your probably thinking "that's our job", but I wanted to tell you that it was much more than that. During this whole process, it always felt that we were meeting with an old friend. I have been to other funeral homes and most of the people never even came close to showing the genuine concern and compassion you shared with all of us. I had family members approach me afterwards and remark how welcoming and understanding your whole staff was (especially Jeff, I had numerous people comment on how wonderful you are, even though we are a "handful" and sometimes probably shared too much :)). I can't begin to imagine how hard your job can be, but i thank you for never making it seem like we were anywhere but with family. Joe Sr. was incredibly touched by all your kindness and will always entrust his family in your hands. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts and for all you do."
Borek Jennings Funeral Homes: Lamb Chapel (Jeffrey Lynn Eineder Jr.) smoothly and efficiently coordinated the long-distance funeral logistics required (mother died in Georgia on Monday w/burial on Thursday). Thanks, the family of Marge Vincunas Feb. 11, 2016
"I just want to thank you for everything that you have done over the course of this last for myself and our family. you and your team really helped us grieve and process in a way that makes my heart feel just that much better. I honestly cannot thank you enough for everything. I didn't think I'd be strong enough to speak about my mom, but I'm so glad i did. Thank you for holding us up."
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.
"We want to thank you and your staff for the outstanding job you did in making us feel at peace in a difficult time. Now that you are part of our family we give you and your staff a big hug."
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
