Dear Mr. Bean,

I would recommend Bean Funeral Home to anyone. I especially commend Joseph McCullough, he is such a wonderful, caring person. Rick, my husband, hand-picked Joe after a Sunday Mass. I thank God I was standing near them that I Heard Rick say to Joe that if anything would happen to him that he wanted Joe to take care of him and his burial. We never dreamed that Rick would pass away so soon and suddenly. I can’t say enough for Joe, he took care of everything and anything I needed. I am so grateful that we met Joe through Patrick, his son, whom Rick loved very much. Patrick used to call Rick “Big Guy”. We recently moved to the Berks County area about 4 ½ years ago. We didn’t know too many places. I thank God for Patrick and Joe. We had people come from different parts of the state and everyone commended what a wonderful job Beans Funeral Home did with the service. You have a wonderful employee. Take good care of Joe, he knows what people want and need. You have a great asset in Joe.

Both Achsah and Becky were caring and helpful.

Shirley Ayrton.

From meeting Achsah with my mom in January making arrangements. She was so helpful to me and my mom. She went out on Mat. Leave and we dealt with Joe, My mom would’ve loved Joe. He fit in with the Kids (all 5 of us) very well. Joe was helpful in every way. He was compassionate, professional and had a great sense of humor. I seen Achsah in the end when I received the Book. She remembered my mom which made me feel good.

Made the situation of saying good-bye to a loved one a beautiful memory. My mom would have loved everything.

Roseanne Derespina

I was comforted by the knowledge that my husband arrangements were in very capable hands. The day after he died, my family are & met with Joseph McCullough to discuss services. They were extremely difficult but Joe took every step slowly and was most gracious and supportive & never felt pushed to do anything & was treated respectfully by everyone and will always remember it.

Mr. McCullough took care of us. He was wonderful. I can’t say enough about how kind and considerate he was. Please thank him again for me. Everything was just perfect.

Elizabeth Leirensperger

We met Joe McCullough in 09/98. He handled my father. We liked him so much and he met all our requests and needs in being so very kind & sweet & caring in one of the worst times of our lives. My mother “fell in love” with him & considered him her “adopted son” so she xxx her pre-planning soon after that time with Joe. Now in 10/06 when she passed away, once again he came through for us in every possible way as. He had in the past. Everything was perfect including the beautiful facilities.

Joe McCullough was the kindest sweetest caring individual meeting all our needs & requests for my mother in 10/06 & my father in 09/98.

Joe was extremely helpful in making the arrangements for my sister’s body to the donated to Humanity Gifts Registry. Providing the opportunity for me to view her body before she was transported to Hershey Medical Center is greatly appreciated!

Eileen Loos

Joe McCullough was very understanding and kind from the first moment we met him to the last time I spoke with him. He did everything possible to make us comfortable and at ease with the situation. Everything went just as planned. I feel that if I have a question or need help with something I can still call upon Joe.

Joe McCullough is absolutely wonderful. He has helped us though 3 services and I would recommend him to anyone!

Everyone on your staff was exceptionally thoughtful and helpful to our family in this time of sadness. We appreciated your excellent professionalism. Our family for over 50 years, has trusted Beans for their helpful and courteous service. Some pre-arranged- some not. Some large Funerals and one small, private Funeral like my mother wanted.

We would not hesitate to recommend your services.

At a time, when I along with my son and daughter were in a state of shock and grief. You and your staff treated us with a politeness we would have a hand time finding anywhere else. You understood how we felt and made us feel calmer. Thank You.

We have had five family funerals with you and have always been well pleased with the professional quality of the service. The attention to detail and helpful suggestions were appreciated. Several of our loved ones suffered a great loss of dignity during their last months and years. Thank you for restoring that dignity.

Achsah Eiceman was a big help in making arrangements for my wife’s funeral – She was courteous, kind and understood my wishes. She also made arrangements to cash-in several insurance policies and made the job easier for me. The ark at the church memorial service gave the feeling of special care. Thank you.

William Lonabergs

Not having to ever make funeral arrangements, I was at a loss. Your prompt service was a relief! Everyone was very courteous and helpful. I even had a cell phone # to call if I had any questions. The call was returned promptly. Everything was handled with class. I was very pleased (as was my family.) Thank you for making an unhappy time easier.
