Your feedback

We are always interested in hearing from the families that we serve.  Please take a moment to let us know how well we served you in your time of need. We very much appreciate your feedback.

My dad passed on May 15th, 2023.
Buckler was the funeral home he wanted. From literally the first interaction, every single interaction was stellar. They held our hands (sometimes literally) through every step of the process. They provided advice, support and most importantly, chocolate. The home was fully stocked with snacks and drinks every time we were there. That may seem insignificant to some, but it is very important while going through the process to remember to eat! They responded to every email and every text. They were compassionate, understanding and supportive. They treated my dad with dignity and he looked exactly how he looked in life. They assisted us in a "trial run" when we told them we wanted to transport my dad to the cemetery in his truck.
Everything went so smoothly and seamless.
We can't say thank you enough.
To Angela, Michele all of the "secret service" men, the people who transported dad to the funeral home and every one else involved... thank you from the bottom of my heart. You made a horrible time in our lives less horrible by taking some of our stress away.

My mom had only dealt with John concerning other family members funerals, so when Michele arrived to pick up my mom, I just had to go with the flow and trust that she would be in good hands.
Well, you are the most kind, caring, understanding and compassionate funeral director that I have had the privilege to deal with.
I can not thank you enough for the manner in which you handled my mom, the family and especially me!

Thank you to you all, everything you all did was comforting and very professional. The knowledge of what was going to happen was fantastic and very helpful to me. The Bagpiper and military honors that you guys got to go through is a true blessing to us. The doormen with the umbrellas and waters, every detailed was covered.
Thank you all!

I just want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for being with me every step of the way with my mom. Your kindness, humor, thoughtfulness, insights, and efforts on her behalf... there aren't the right words for me to explain it except that you are a truly an exceptional human being and that I am truly grateful for that.
thank you,

I have nothing but the highest praise for Mr. John Weeden and the Avery Funeral Home. He was unfailingly kind, compassionate and made a very difficult and stressful period in my life a little less so. He was accommodating in all respects and for this, I will be forever grateful. Thank you once again!

I want to thank you again for all you did to make our graveside service everything we wanted it to be! Making arrangements with you was so easy and consoling. I know it wasn't as intensive as you are used to doing but it was exactly what we need and wanted.

Dear John and Staff,
I would like to thank you for the impeccable job that you did with Jerry and his services. It was (and still is) a very difficult time but you once again handled everything with such grace, efficiency and dignity.
your respect for someone's loss of a loved one is unmatched. You all made the process a little easier to bear. From your answering service to your secretary to the ushers (door men) to you. You make it more than just your job. Thank you!!

With the sudden passing of our mother, John and Angela guided us through all aspects of the arrangements including difficult, sensitive decisions and tasks at a very emotional time. They were considerate and compassionate every step of the way. No detail was too large or too small. The church and graveside services were very good. We were fortunate to work with a team of true professionals. Sincerely, The Curran Family

My father had chosen Buckler -Johnston as his funeral home a long time ago. Previous experiences were very good in his eyes. I knew that when my sister and I met with John about the arrangements it would be taken care and we'd be very satisfied. John and his team certainly didn't disappoint us. The service was outstanding even during Covid-19. Great job with the military honors also.

I cant say enough about the wonderful treatment and professionalism from Michelle. We lost both parents in 9 weeks and really relied on Michelle more than most, I'm sure. She is a breathe of fresh air during a difficult time. I wouldn’t go anywhere else for my family after dealing with Buckler Johnston sincerely, the Bedard family.

Both Michele and Angela were patient and gracious as I was forgetful in some of my responsibilities. I was very pleased with the presentation of my Mom. Everything at the graveside service went well. Thank you Michele for the podium, it was a big help. Overall, Buckler-Johnston did a great job as has always been my experience. Missed John though : ) Sincerely, Larry Chappell

What I appreciate most about Buckler-Johnston Funeral Home was that they were very honest about there pricing. I found the Funeral Director Michele Wegner to be very compassionate and determined to provide the best possible care to our family and loved one. The Administrative Assistant Angela Cornell was very kind while doing the difficult task of collecting sensitive information. It's was an emotional time for our family and Buckler-Johnston Funeral Home really made us feel comfortable and confident with the services needed. Sincerely, the Brennan family

Buckler-Johnston was wonderful to our family, from the moment we met Michelle on a Friday afternoon to do cremation paperwork for my parents, to the arrangements shortly after for my dad passed just weeks later. Michelle listened to my moms request for a tour of the facility even though she was being cremated. Michelle spent hours with us going over everything and was readily available if I had concerns on off hours. I truly cant say enough about the funeral home. They are extremely professional and kind. They have a big heart for what they do. Sincerely, The Bedard family.

What can we say about Buckler –Johnston Funeral Home??
They buried several of our family members over the years – most recent our Mom which was the hardest.
John and Michele took great pride in making this as easy as possible on us from start to finish. Not only were they comforting and upbeat, but so sincere. We really appreciate their kindness.

When my Dad passed we went to Buckler Johnson. John had managed the arrangements for my Grandparents and other family members. The professionalism was outstanding, and he truly cared. Best in the business. Many Thanks
