A Message to the Staff of
Baue Funeral Homes, Crematory & Cemetery:
"Our family wanted to take a few minutes to thank the staff of Baue for all the kind words and helpful advice in planning and executing the funeral. Thanks for helping us through the initial consultation and special thanks for guidance the day of the service. You went above and beyond our expectations changing things on the fly based on the weather, church lighting, etc. We couldn't have been more pleased."
