What Families say

"Totally professional staff, but, so loving to the survivors. Pure class."

"I have been to The Candle Light Funeral Home several times and wanted to write a review to let people know how loving, kind and compassionate the Witzke Family is. They make planning very easy even though its such a painful time. They are there to help but unobtrusive. Craig Witzke, his daughter Ashley, and the staff are there for every need no matter how easy or difficult. I highly recommend them, you will feel absolute peace having them help you."

"Whenever someone's loved one passes over, I automatically think of Craig Witzke because I know the Candle Light Funeral Home would be the place I would want my funeral. I have attend 2 services and both were absolutely beautiful. The Candle Light is run by the Witzke family and their compassion, experience and comfort in a time of need is priceless. Craig's attention to every detail of the service, Ashley comforting presence/organization skills and Russell's years of experience and compassion make a very difficult time, more bearable. But the most comforting is Bentley, the funeral home comfort dog. He fills that hole in your heart that is left when no words can be found to comfort you any longer. You will not find yourself in better hands."

"Craig, Ashley & the entire Witzke staff are without question the most kind, caring, compassionate people I have ever had any dealings with when it comes to the loss of a loved one. They truly go the extra mile to lessen the burden of your loss. I am so grateful to you all for the comfort you provided during the loss of my dear friends mother. You all went out of your way. Thank you for everything...you all are the best in the business!"

"Despite the circumstances, the Witzke family made the visit inviting and warm. The building is warm and the staff very professional. Not your typical "big business" funeral home. Family have used the Candle Light and commented that the staff placed them at ease and they felt peaceful making the arrangements and during the viewing and funeral. Thank you for providing an alternative."

"Craig Witzke and the entire staff of the Candle Light Funeral Home did a wonderful job with everything when my granddad passed. They went above and beyond to help and make sure everything was exactly the way the family wanted. Craig even came and visited my grandparents house to offer his personal condolences and talk with my grandma. A very beautiful establishment and very respectful staff."

"Craig and his daughter Ashley gave us a wonderful atmosphere to celebrate my mom's life and honor her passing. They warmly met all of our needs."
