My Mother, Elaine G. Lawson, was Honored to be the very first to ride in the new hearse to the Cemetery! I am pretty sure she thought she was riding in style! Bryan, Jeff and Samantha did such a wonderful service for her! I can't Praise them highly enough and would recommend to anyone that you consider having Koons-Russell do your final Services!

The Koons Russell Funeral Home held a beautiful service for my husband's grandfather. Since we were coming from North Carolina, we had our two year old son with us at the funeral. Not ideal, but Jeff went above and beyond to help me keep him occupied during the service, even bringing out coloring books and markers. I was so appreciative of his kindness and I know my family appreciated all that Bryan and Jeff did to help us honor the life of our sweet Pop Pop.

Brian and Jeff are caring, compassionate, and extremely thorough with their business. We have lost several family and friends over the years. They both go above and beyond to take care of the families and do an exceptional job of helping with decisions and guidance of the burial plans of your lost loved one. Goodland is blessed and lucky to have them. Thank you Koons-Russell Funeral Home for all you do and for helping bring peace in very difficult times.

We have worked with Koons-Russell for my Mother's, Dad's and husband's services over the past few years. Bryan and Jeff are totally professional and can answer any questions you may have. They are also very compassionate in response to each individual's loss of a loved one. I would recommend them to anyone who's experiencing loss.

Bryan and Jeff, from the bottom of my heart I’m so thankful and grateful for you both. During one of the most hardest moments in my life y’all did whatever we wanted or needed to make it beautiful in honoring mother! From the way you go about things and explain all options, and then always reminded us you will do whatever we want, made me feel a little less worried and less stressed. For the viewing I was in (ahh) when I saw her, I was afraid but when I saw her I couldn’t help but smile because she looked so beautiful. I was very pleased with your services and patience as a funeral home and just your caring and humble and genuinely good a person being who you are outside the funeral services. You guys are the freaking best!!! 💕👍 i appreciate you as a friend and as funeral directors and organizers! Highly recommended for lost loved ones!!!! Thank you from the bottom of my heart! 💯

Bryan and Jeff were such a blessing to us during the most difficult time. They were so warm and caring throughout the whole process. They made a relatively complicated service request easy, taking away all of the burden of coordination. The service was beautiful, and they were such a comfort.

Thank you so much to Bryan and Jeff as you helped our family to celebrate both the lives of our dad (Jesse Craft) then most recently our mother (Doris Craft). Our mom adored you for how you helped with not only our dad’s funeral but as she came to work with you through the funeral ministry of the United Methodist Church in Goodland. Then when mom became ill you showed your great love for her by coming to visit her with a bouquet of flowers and margarita glasses in hand! Thank you so much for helping her and us at such sacred, tender moments. You truly provided the best of care and a beautiful service for both of our parents. Please know we are eternally grateful.

Bryan and Jeff were so amazing to us during the time we lost our beloved mother. Both of them were so amazing in all thier profession. I can't honestly thank them both enough. My mothers service was so beautiful and just perfect , They both did a wonderful job explaining everything to us and making sure mom looked great! They made you feel so welcomed and cared for during our difficult time. It felt more like a friendship with them, than just them doing their job. Everything was very perfect and absolutely beautiful!! Thank you both so much for everything you did for my family.

I can say unequivocally that Koons Russell Funeral Home, Bryan, Jeff and Samantha, helped us to handle Mom's passing in the best way possible. Although Mom struggled the last days of her life, she was laid to rest as beautiful as she was during her lifetime. They are very caring professionals willing to assist in any manner needed. Their caring does not stop after the funeral service, as they continue to check on our well-being days after the service. God led them to this profession for a reason, and it is quite evident He had a plan for them. Thanks to all of you for making Mom's passing a celebration of life well lived. You will be in my heart forever.

Bryan and Jeff were amazing with our family. We were coming from out of town and they made it very easy for us.. Samantha was just as amazing with answering any questions that we had.. With their help we were able to hold a wonderful ceremony to pay proper respect for our passed loved one.

Jeff and Bryan are the absolute best! They are totally professional, and they were amazing through out the worst time of my life when my son was killed in a car crash. The empathy and compassion that was shown to my family and I was simply amazing. Jeff and Bryan have a true passion for what they do and it truly shows. The amount of detail and patience that it took to make my son look perfect is something that I will never forget, and would never trust to anyone else. My son's funeral was huge and they made sure that everything was absolutely perfect. The amount of compassion and dignity that was shown to my son, my family and I was absolutely AMAZING. They didn't see my son as "just another body", they saw him as someone's family member, and were happy to accommodate us and answer any questions we had, day or night! Thank you Bryan and Jeff for doing what you do. You are AMAZING! There was absolutely no doubt in my mind that my son was being taken care of by the best!

We would like to express our gratitude to Koons-Russell Funeral Home. Our family could not have asked for better guidance with the many decisions and your tireless attention to all details. Your professionalism and personable demeanor did not go unnoticed, as well.
Thank you again, Bryan and Jeff, for handling our mother's final arrangements with the utmost compassion and respect.

Bryan and Jeff are the best in the business. They walked through the process with us and helped to guide us in some of the decisions we had to make. Many people remarked at the visitation how good our dad looked. They were very attentive to our needs and very responsive to the many questions we had.

Thank you again for making this time in our lives easier...

To, Bryan & Jeff, "Thank-You" is very insufficient to say the least, your caring & Compassion towards our family was unsurpassed by all means!!! You were helpful when we called you about the proper procedure on everything, then you came out in a blizzard, the loving way you came into the home, sat & visited with us was very much appreciated. Then when making arrangements your integrity, honesty & patience in explaining everything helped make the process much easier. W also want to "Thank-You" for all your expertise in filling out the insurance forms & helping with all the other paper work that is required by the many company's and government agencies. A quote from Ron; "It sure is a lot of work to get someone moved into Heaven!" Thanks Again for your wonderful care!!

I can not thank Bryan and Jeff enough for everything they have done for our family during the time of my daughters passing and since then. All the services provided by the funeral home for my 1 year old daughters funeral were donated. Their generosity is one not found too often these days. They made my once sick baby look like herself again. Not everyone can do their job but they do it beautifully! You guys are amazing at what you do and our community is blessed to have you!

We can not thank Bryan and Jeff enough for the special care that we received during the time our mother passed away. They were very professional, but so comforting to everyone of us. Our communities are blessed to have them to take care of our loved ones.
