- About Us
Derek & staff....There are no words to express our appreciation and thanks for the wonderful celebration of our mom,s life. At a time that was stressful for us, we relied on you to take care of so much! Explaining each step helped us make decisions and feel somewhat in control of a very difficult situation. From the time you came to us in the middle of the night, to the burial in the cemetery, we felt at ease and in good hands! And for that, we will be forever grateful!
Derek, Pat, and Staff
Thank you for everything you did for our family! We know you on a personal level but your knowledge, organization, and guidance was very professional. Your presence and the compassion you showed remained constant and helped saying goodbye a little easier.
Derek's professionalism and compassion are second to none. We had a number of special requests during my father's passing and he respected every one of them. With many family members in the Little Chute area, I have experienced his work several times and remain impressed.
We had the privilege of working with Derek @ Verkuilen-Van Deurzen Family Funeral home-Freedom. We have a very close and large family. Derek was very helpful during this difficult time of my Dad's passing. He went above and beyond the call of duty. He was very professional and accommodating. His compassion and guidance was exceptional. We were very impressed with Derek and his staff. We would highly recommend anyone needing these services to use this funeral home. Thank you Derek for all your good work, it was greatly appreciated.
We had the privilege of working with Verkuilen funeral homes over the past week. We have a very close family, and also a large one. Derek was amazing in his organization, leadership, and guiding presence during this very difficult time for my family. His professionalism was practiced the entire week, which provided my family with compassionate and high quality care which should not go unnoticed. Thank you Derek from the bottom of our hearts for all the good work you provided. May God Bless you and your work in the future.
Derek was so helpful during this difficult time of my Dad passing away. His passion for his work was very impressive and made this experience for my wife and me easier on us. He went above and beyond the call of duty. We also enjoyed spending time with him to get to know Derek as a person and learn more about the funeral business. We highly recommend Derek and his staff at Verkuilen-Van Deurzen Family Funeral Home.
I had the honor and privilege of attending a memorial program in memory of my mom and all the people who had their furnural service with Derek, and his compassionate staff. Thank you for this special service, in memory of the ones we lost this pass year. Gone, but never forgotten.
Our entire family was so impressed with the compassion and service we received from Derek and his staff in the recent death of our mother, Lorraine Hooyman. He may be the youngest in the state but he appears to have years of experience. Thank you Derek.
We had the pleasure of working with the Verkuilen-Van Deurzen Family Funeral Home and staff after my mother’s recent passing. From the moment we first met with Derek and his staff, until the final service of laying her to rest at the cemetery, he offered suggestions, gave out hugs and work diligently to make sure that our every wish came to be. This group of professionals are soft spoken, compassionate and accommodating. We would highly recommend anyone needing these services to use this funeral home.
