Theresa Dunnigan Obituary

Our Families Say:
Dear Paul and Anna - When you took our choices and put them into action (I am an OCD perfectionist) I could not have orchestrated the whole process better if I had directed it myself. You went above and beyond. It was phenomenal. I mean phenomenal!!!

"Personally, I think you both have really answered your true calling in life, to help us deal with the death of a loved one."
Sincerely, Terry Vinning
Anna and Paul - I cannot begin to express my gratitude for everything you have done. Your help and support have been such a blessing during this difficult time. Despite my loss, I am grateful to have gained two friends.
With love, Aree Peterson
Dear Paul and Anna - I just would like to thank you for your kindness that you gave to my husband John, during these sad times of losing both of his parents. The professionalism that you showed was outstanding but most of all your compassion and caring meant so much to us all.
Blessings & Prayers, Nancy & John Napoleon
Dear Paul and Anna - There are not enough words to thank you both. You are very special to me and I will never forget and will always be grateful to the both of you.
Very Truly Yours
Kathy Napierkowski
Dear Paul and Anna - Kind, gentle, efficient, professional this is what you both are. Sincere thanks for all that was done for Ella and our family.
In Sorrow, Paul Panesa
Paul and Anna - Your compassion helped us deal with our loss, and your professionalism was unsurpassed in helping us plan his wake and service. It truly was a celebration of David's life.
Diane Blakley
Dear Paul & Anna - We cannot begin to express our gratitude to both of you for all you did to make the passing of Mom easier for us to get through. Every aspect was perfect, from making the arrangements, to making mom beautiful, to decorating with mom's things, the funeral and graveside. We will never forget your kindness and compassion during a very difficult time in our lives.
Cindy and John Belsito
Paul and Anna - Thank you for all you did to make sure Harold was laid to rest with lots of love and dignity. I appreciate your kind, courteous and professional service.
Love, Dolores Leonard
Dear Paul and Anna - Jeff's passing was as much a shock for you both, as for our family. Your kind, caring ways; your gentle guidance through those first few days after his death and ultimately through the calling hours and funeral – you both never failed to be there when we needed you and continue to do so now. Our community is extremely fortunate to have you here to respond and assist families at such difficult times.
Joanne Fredenberg and Family
Dear Anna & Paul - Thank you!! Thank you!! For the manner in which you handled Tony's funeral. We were very pleased. God bless both of you!!
Anne Greco & son Tony
Dear Paul & Anna - I wanted to thank you both for all your help with my father, Howard Fox's funeral. We were so pleased with how everything was handled by you and your staff. Paul, I know that my niece really appreciated your guidance when she did the readings in church.
Evelyn Hopp
Dear Paul, Anna & Staff - Thank you for your compassion, kindness and professionalism during our time of loss and sorrow. We appreciate everything you did for our family.
Troy & Scott Ashdown and family
