My family and I wish to give a huge, heartfelt thank you to Todd Winkel at Heartland Funeral Home in Brandon for making Scott's Celebration a beautiful memory and a great success.
Todd, you went way above and beyond to make Scott's Celebration the beautiful memory that it is; it will forever be in our hearts. We are all amazed at the time, compassion and work you put into making this a wonderful Memorable Tribute in Scott's honor. You worked closely with us/me to be sure everything was in place per our expectations. (sorry even after you called, I forgot the guest book). We realize you had last-minute hurdles to jump when certain areas of the program fell through, we have no idea how you did it, Todd, but you made it happen, and we are forever grateful to you! Scott would be so proud. THANK YOU!
Forever grateful, Virginia & Scott Middlen Family

My dad’s funeral was on July 2nd. My brother and I were flying blind planning the funeral and dealing with everything after someone passes away. Todd was absolutely amazing. He was kind, understanding and honest about the process, not to mention how genuine he is. He went above and beyond to make sure we had everything we needed and more. I would highly recommend his services. Thanks, Todd.

We had no worries after talking to Todd, he took care of everything which was a great comfort to our family during this difficult time in our lives. We couldn't believe how beautiful and at peace our Grandmother looked during the visitation, the end of my Grandma's journey was a wonderful experience thanks to Todd and his staff. We couldn't have have asked for a better funeral home.

The entire family of Evelyn Schnabel wishes to thank you for your outstanding services and your caring, compassionate attitude. During such a difficult time, you thought of everything and took care of all the little details that made all the difference. You were very thorough answering questions and did everything you said you would do and then some. Mom looked so nice and natural it was if you knew her personally. It takes a special person to do what you do and so many friends and family members commented how beautiful the whole ceremony was. What a great send off for Mom.

Thank you so much for your kindness during the difficult time of letting Steve go and letting him be with Our Heavenly Father. Your love and kindness have given me a faith in humanity…that there are people out there that still really care for us during our times of trials and difficulties. I cannot express how much what you have done for Steve’s family and I with your show of faith and love. Thank you so much.

I just wish to thank everyone for the concern and outstanding acts of kindness you gave my parents Russ and Carol Bass at the passing of my brother Bruce Bass.

Right from the moment they walked thru your doors to the above and beyond the call of duties after his passing. Everybody was so kind and caring and I understand why you do the things you do. It takes special people to do this and I am most grateful you were there to help.
