My husband, Jeff, passed away nearly one year ago in August, 2013. It has taken (and currently is taking) me some time to process this finality, and it is concerning this matter that I write to you today.  First, I would like to express my gratitude to the many residents from Sidney and Piqua and surrounding areas, as well as out of town visitors for their overwhelming kind condolences.  The outpouring of love and compassion was truly touching and very much appreciated.   It was wonderful to us to take with the many people who expressed such positive and sincere feelings about Jeff; my children found these testimonies to be particularly comforting.  Thank you to all!   Secondly, I would like to take this opportunity to publically thank Mr. Doug McGill and Mr. Don Tangeman from Salm-McGill and Tangeman Funeral Home for their extraordinary efforts to honor our wishes for Jeff's viewing and funeral service.   Both Mr. McGill and Mr. Tangeman were friendly, easy to talk with, and very knowledgeable about end of life issues.  They respectfully guided us in making our many funeral decisions.   But, what was most impressive were their efforts to help us plan a very unique and personalized funeral service complete with flying the Ohio State flag and Buckeye music playing in the background.   Mr. McGill even went so far as to carry water outside to visitors who were waiting in line to enter the funeral home as the weather that evening was quite hot and humid.  Mr. McGill and Mr. Tangeman took care of many details for us - both large and small - and they succeeded in making our difficult time a calm and peaceful experience.  Thank-you for this opportunity to share these thoughts today.   Thank-you to Mr. McGill and Mr. Tangeman and to all of you who supported me and my children at Jeff's passing.  I will be forever grateful.

Don Tangeman was very particular about the memorial service for my mom.  Very helpful and available to me at this very difficult time.   Don also kept in contact with me as further questions developed.  Grateful for his time and commitment to his clients.   Professional, respectful and caring.  Definitely understands the grieving process one goes thru.  Would highly recommend him and his funeral services.
