Thank you for everything you guys did. Larry's battle with cancer was devastating for us all. You allowed his family and friends to have one last day to see the man we loved and remember him as he should be remembered. From start to finish you were there guiding us through with friendship and kindness, I am sure you even provided the perfect weather.

I can't say enough positive remarks about Janet, Richard and staff. Not just courteous - compassionate and warm. They're the best.

Janet and Richard were both very helpful in the planning of my husband's funeral. Considering I had never had to plan a funeral they both made it easy and very informative in every aspect of the choices we needed to make, I and my son would highly recommend Mereness-Putnam Funeral Home!!

We would like to thank Richard, Janet and Nick, for the care and considerate attention in conducting our dad‘s final arrangements. Their availability, professionalism and respect for our wishes, at all times, eased our minds and provided peace during this difficult time. There is a reason our family has always called on this establishment to care for loved ones at such a time as this. Experiencing their love and support first hand was indeed a blessing.

Janet and Richard, you are outstanding in what you do. Thank you for making our last day with Mom memorable - she looked so beautiful. Your genuine care and compassion was felt by our entire family - we couldn't have asked for more.

I couldn't have asked for better service! The entire process was carried through like a well oiled machine. Janet and Richard are very kind, compassionate people who respect and honor the family and friends of the deceased. I wanted the best for my father and they delivered it.

Richard & Janet,
I just wanted to take the opportunity to thank you both for everything. From responding to our first call in the middle of the night, to our weekend visitation, to our long trip to Pennsylvania, I felt your personal attention was like that often reserved for family. You both were my strength those few days when I was so incredibly lost and brokenhearted. You held our hands and walked us through saying goodbye, and I am forever grateful. Sara (& Todd) Del Marter

Dear Janet and Richard, Just a brief note of thanks for all you did for us and for our community. Your professional caring and support are so valuable when one has experienced the loss of a loved one, and for that we are most grateful. However, you both go so much beyond the professional role. You both showed us such personal love, as well as caring and support. For this we will forever be eternally grateful. Thanking you from the bottom or our hearts, Susan and Michael Cimeno-Cary.

Michael and I just watched the DVD with our daughter Heather and we all cherished every moment. The music was perfect, the tulips are lovely and the pictures just perfect. We will adore it always and thank you from the bottom of my heart. Appreciatively, Susan

My husband, Ronald Oathout, passed away unexpectedly. We were married for 45 years and I was in shock. Mereness-Putnam gave me all the time I needed without any sales pitches and assisted me in making Ronald's services beautiful with the funding I had. I will always remember their thoughtfulness in my time of grief. They should be commended for their high standard of service.

"Thank you for the wonderful service that you, your husband and staff provided for me and my family. As you may know, my wife's mother was laid to rest in February. All I can say is the differences in service were incredible. You were kind, compassionalte, understanding, flexible, efficent, thorough, timely, and I can't begin to list how pleased my family was with the arrangements. As you know, you are in a line of business that people do not want to have to refer to others to but if I am ever in the position, I would unequivocally recommend you. Again thanks."

Jeffry Huse-Slingerlands, NY

"Again, you could not ask for a more caring staff...It is unbelievable how comforting they all are and how they treat the deceased as their own family. We were the first to use the facility after a remodeling. They had to finish to be able to have our service and never made it feel like it was a problem for them."

Shirley Bailey-Richmondville, NY

"Mereness-Putnam Funeral Home was recognized & honored with the "Schoharie County ARC's 2007 Community Service Award" & continue to serve every family & member of our organization as their own."

James Kerr-Howes Cave, NY

"Our "Thank You" notes would be incomplete if we did not express our deep appreciation to you both for going "above and beyond" for our family at the time of Frank's funeral. You made a very difficult experience as good as it could possibly be. You treated us like your own family and went out of your way to make sure our needs were met - and then some. You are a very special couple and a blessing to our community."

Lillian Pindiak, Cobleskill, NY

"As far as we could tell, everything was very well thought out and organized. We have attended many funerals during our lifetime, but we will never forget this one. Please accept our commendation for a job well done."
