Your feedback

We are always interested in hearing from the families that we serve.  Please take a moment to let us know how well we served you in your time of need. We very much appreciate your feedback.

The entire staff at the funeral home was absolutely amazing. It's a very hard time for everyone involved and they let us go at our own pace.

Shawn was simply outstanding. He was a great listener, leader and attended to all of our needs. Great staff to work with!

Dear Shawn and Staff at the David-Donehower Funeral Home,
The words Thank You seem so weak when trying to appreciate the feelings of the heart... but it seems the best I can do as I contemplate your care. Your cards, your invitations, your visits, your immediate attention, your covering of every detail without losing that personal and caring touch, seeing us through the cemetery burials and even after it all, being available for information and "hugs". God has blessed you all with a special mission... and we are so grateful! You have seen our family through 2 very difficult times... Know that we are eternally grateful.

We want to extend our sincere appreciation and warmest thanks to the staff at David-Donehower. From the moment we entrusted the care of our mother to you, we were shown compassion and empathy. We are so thankful to you for meeting with us, answering our questions, and respecting our wishes. Your attention to detail meant a lot to us.

The facility was very nice, big and inviting. It really helped to have space for visitation service and also an area to get together after. Shawn was so helpful with everything. He really makes you feel at ease and comfortable with his manner. He also took the time to take care of the details so the family didn't have to worry about it.


I would recommend David-Donehower to everyone. They have shown more compassion and love to our family then I have ever expected. I have also joined their grief counseling and it's amazing. My mom was very beautiful. I'm so happy we chose David-Donehower Funeral Home.


My husband had his funeral planned and they took care of all of his wishes. I was very satisfied with my husband's beautiful service. They fulfilled all of my wishes.

They went above and beyond, we had the memorial service at the Community Center so more arrangements than normal were made and they were done graciously!

Dave is excellent - we would never consider going elsewhere, everything was perfect.

Just a note to let you know how much our family appreciated Shawn Nygaard as he helped us with the funeral of my father-in-law two weeks ago in Detroit Lakes. He did an outstanding job and went beyond our expectations. He was there for us during a difficult time and words do not express how helpful he was.

We were extremely satisfied - they went "Beyond the Call of Duty" in service. They could not have been better. They are very compassionate people. Even though it has been a month they are still there for a person, they are wonderful people, the world needs more like them.

The staff at David Donehower Funeral Home is so professional and have been so helpful and respectful in every experience I have had with them.

…How Grateful I am for all you did for our family to make mom’s death and subsequent duties related to funeral plans, etc. so easy. You have no idea how much I appreciate not only all you did, but also, Kim sitting with me in an effort to get a program that was so Bev. She is remarkable. I also know there were other staff involved who I did not meet that made sure the visitation and funeral were perfect. And it was perfect. There are no words to express the dignity and honor you showed my mom, other than my sincere and heartfelt thank you. I can only hope the life I live will warrant the same honor you showed to mom.

Shawn was great to work with, as he was very caring. Felt like he was a part of our family. He has a sense of humor that worked for (our family). (We) were very satisfied with the arrangements, that's why we chose David-Donehower.

Thank you very much for the wonderful, personal service you all provided for our family in the final days of our Dad…no request was turned down and each was fulfilled with such a warm attitude. Thank you all for making such a difficult time glide by so smoothly.

Shawn, Shelley, Kim and Staff – I want to say thank you for being so good at what you do! You are special people. We have had a lot of losses in our family, but have never experienced the kind of sincere caring and compassion you demonstrated to our entire family during this most incredibly difficult time. Words cannot express my sincere appreciation for the exemplary job you all do! Thank you for caring so much…words can't express the peace of mind you give to others through what you do....and not so much what you do, but how you do it! You guys are the best. God Bless

The Family of John Jay Householder

We couldn’t have been more pleased with Shawn, Kim and the entire staff! They were amazing. Everything was wonderful, as the staff is the best ever! They helped us get through a tough situation, wonderfully.

I wanted to thank all of you for the excellent service provided to us by each and every one of you for all of us, during this difficult situation. From the time I stopped in and asked if there was anyone who could come out to the house to talk about a funeral because my husband was unable to come into town. Dave Karsnia volunteered to come the next day and brought all the info so Tom could have a choice in his destination. From then on we were treated well by everyone. You met all our needs with a smile and we all appreciated it. I will not hesitate to recommend you to everyone I see.
