An important message to the families we serve

Each year as our thoughts turn from Winter to Spring, we look ahead with a sense of renewed hope and promise. This is especially true this Spring as vaccines are being distributed to combat a virus that disrupted our lives over a year ago. We all continue to do our best to protect ourselves, our families, and our communities while maintaining some semblance of normal life, as we patiently await the time when we can again safely gather for family celebrations and events.

In response to guidance from the health authorities we here at Henderson-Van Atta-Stickle Funeral Home are doing our best to ensure the protection of our staff members and the families we serve, while fully honoring our commitment to provide the highest standard of dignified funeral service. Our offices are open only by appointment (so please call ahead!), and processing times for many documents are slower than normal. Of course, we will always respond immediately in the event of a death.

While we will continue to adapt and respond to the challenges we face, our dedication to providing quality service to the families who call on us in their time of need remains unchanged - just as it has for over a century through depressions, floods, tornados and other disasters. Working together we will get through this as well.

May God bless you and your families. Please stay safe,

Jack W. Stickle, II
