Dear Thomas,

Just wanted to thank you, and all your staff at Duggan's, for the excellent service that you provided to my grandmother, Val M., and our entire family, for the service of my grandfather, Les M.

Your warm and welcoming demeanor, and your gentle presentation of information, made us all feel safe, and really helped to soften the blow of losing our grandfather.

The Rosary, Mass and Reception were all done so beautifully, and went so smoothly, that it truly was a celebration of life!
Thank you again, to you and your staff, for all you do.

Dear Thomas,

On behalf of myself and my five siblings (Kevin, Mary, Patsy, Margaret and Eileen) I wanted to express our sincere thanks and appreciation of the way you coordinated all of our mom's services--Mary C.--on 12/17 and 12/18.

It gave us great peace of mind to go back to the place that handled our dad's arrangements so many years ago.

It was especially hard that her passing occurred during the holidays and we felt very fortunate that you came in on your day off to meet with all of us and get the process started.

We strongly feel that all of Mom's services--from the viewing and rosary--to the funeral mass--to the graveside service--to the reception--were exactly what our mom would have wanted.

We can't thank you enough for your professionalism and compassion during all of it!

With sincere appreciation for everything,
Kathy E.

Dear Staff of Duggan's,

What a lovely surprise! Carlos would cherish the idea [Penny Pines tree planting memorial in Mendocino National Forest]--we camped there often.

Thank you,

Dear Susan,

Peter and I were touched to learn that Duggan's arranged for a tree to be planted in remembrance of Annette W. in the Penny Pines Plantation of the Mendocino Nat'l Forest. What a worthwhile program with a rich history! Thank you for your thoughtfulness and for making a difficult time more bearable.

Dear Duggan Family,

I received your note regarding the planting of a tree in the Mendocino National Forest to honor the life of my mother, Peggy B. I cannot express to you how much your kindness means to me. Mendocino was a very special place to both of us--she loved to watch the whales, loved the ocean and lighthouses--we took a mother/daughter trip there. A living memorial in the forest there is so special. Thank you so very much.

And thank you for making the last thing I did for my mom without stress and full of compassion.

Absolutely one of the best, and most professional funeral service providers I have ever experienced. Not only were they swift and efficient, but they were able to accommodate the special needs of our family. They took fantastic care in fulfilling the plans my father in law had pre-arranged before his passing. We couldn't have been happier with their excellent services.

Wonderful staff and experience for us at a very difficult time. Thorough, caring, efficient, and compassionate with the handling of the passing of a dear friend. Went above and beyond to respond to our needs. Took care of all details effectively. Would highly recommend this funeral home for the handling of the last wishes of your loved one.

During the unexpected passing of my step-dad, our family was relieved to have the professional services of Duggan's Mission Chapel. During this extremely emotional time, the caring and professional staff were able to meet all our needs without causing any further distress. We definitely recommend Duggan's to anyone in need of funeral services.

Thank you for your chapel's good care of my husband, Don O. We were especially appreciative of your opening the chapel for our entire family to be together with Don. Don was a forester grad. in college and would love having a tree planted in his honor.
