Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all you have done to help us through this heartbreaking journey. Although there was never a question where we would go when a loved one passed because of our many years of friendship with our families, we couldn’t ask for anything more. All of you show so much kindness and compassion and we know it is truly heartfelt. The service and all you did for Duane was amazing and we all will be forever grateful. God Bless you all.

This is one of the finest funeral homes I have ever seen in preparing the body- in there natural appearance. I have known the Harmer Family all my life and they have been in business for many-many family generations. Wonderful People- Can't say enough good about them- I am 83 years old and they will take care of me when I pass.

The Swiger family has been blessed to Harmer Funeral Home to service our needs at the time of our losses. Since 1963, They go above and beyond to make the family more comfortable. The Swiger family feels like we are part of their (Harmer) family. No matter where you look you *will never find *a friendlier staff than Harmer Funeral Home. One of the most memorable things about our experience was the Staff, they were so kind to the family and helpful. They never rushed us in making choices and answered questions we had and explained the answers so we could understand.

My most memorable moment was the comfort that my loved one's funeral was in the hands of Harmer Funeral Home, They're the very best. I would choose this funeral home again because they are the absolute best at their business. Harmer's has been the funeral home that has handled arrangements for my parents, grandparents, and a host of other relatives. They are simply the very best at the business and their outstanding level of service allows the bereaved to focus attention on other matters at this most difficult time. One cannot put a price on the value of the Peace of Mind that Harmer's imparts.

Mr. William Shuttleworth and Janice Cutlip Family

The most memorable thing about our experience was the Military Rites. Patrick Kovalck was awesome. I called him at home at 1:30 AM. He was at the hospital in a very short time. He came with a hug, a smile, and love in his heart. He treated our whole family with respect and compassion. We will never forget all of Patrick's kindness. He is truly the _*best*_.

The most memorable thing about my experience was the granted wish by the funeral director, Pat, arranging for the Fire Department's participation in the services, because my father was a founding father of the Shinnston VFD. My husband and my family have used Harmer's as long as I can remember. Jay has done a wonderful job continuing the Harmer legacy.
