What Our Families Have To Say
"They are very compassionate and supportive. Held space with the family and their presence provided comfort and peace through some of the toughest times. They are angels."
Cindy Fiddler Morgan
"I met with Doug to discuss my Mom’s arrangements which had already been pre-paid but in another city. He advised me what was best to do when the need arises. His help in sorting out what was covered and how to access it was so valuable. Very comforting knowing everything is covered when she passes. Great service & caring staff."
"I can't even touch the surface of how compassionate Bear Creek Funeral home was during the most difficult pain from losing our son so young and sudden. They took the worry of having to make arrangements right off our shoulders. They treated our son with the utmost respect. You will forever be in our hearts. Special angels here on earth."
Cynthia Kirk Bujold
"They do an excellent job thank you. "
"I was so fortunate, yesterday, that Eunice had some time to tour me through their new facility! What a beautiful space. I am so delighted for Doug and Eunice and indeed everyone in the Peace Country who will be blessed with this trinity: the halls, the shop and the Funeral Home. National preeminence is on the horizon - setting the Canadian standard at a new level of excellence. Congratulations!"
"Thank you so much for everything you have done to help us get through the worst time in our lives. Your kindness, and compassion was heartfelt. Visiting with Petey was a blessing, and I want to particularly thank you for the rush on getting our necklaces to us so quickly. God Bless you all, thank you again."

"My family and I want to thank you for your kindness, concern, and efforts during the recent passing of our father... We genuinely appreciate your manner in handling the many details surrounding his funeral arrangements. Your courtesy and professionalism will be remembered in our family, and recommended to others. We are especially grateful for the final opportunity of closure."
"Thank you so much Karleigh, and your wonderful team there! I couldn’t have asked for a more pleasant and professional experience to purchase my glass piece which I will treasure for always! Right down to the little bag that my grandparents’ ashes came back in, so much etiquette and respect! Nana and papa are home! Thank you! "
"Thank you so very much for the final extra touches to the "Yukon" condolence message for John. You -- or you and your IT techs -- have exceeded my most optimistic hopes in your adjustments. The attached print screen shows a grander version of the names of my husband and me on the side of the message than I had anticipated. My husband is very impressed by the extra thoughtfulness and technical expertise of copying our "full signature" up from the bottom of the message. We wish good health, safety, and kind blessings to you and everyone at Bear Creek Funeral Home. Thank you again for the extremely important and much appreciated assistance all of you provided for John and to my family."
