I read the previous testimonials, and quite frankly, I’m a little disappointed. I thought John’s exemplary treatment of my family was exclusive!! LOL! We are from Michigan; John was magnificent at servicing our needs from afar when our loved one died in Latrobe. Once we arrived in PA, John treated us as if we were friends, entitled to first class attention. I don’t impress easily; I was mightily impressed. Thank you, John.

John is nothing but caring and goes out of his way to make sure everything is taken care of. Very professional. Great rates. We won’t take our family anywhere else.

I would like to thank John. My mother passed Dec 18. She had prior arrangements with another funeral home that had closed and John took over the nightmare that the this closing cause. I called the number prior to my mom's passing and John answered with the most caring voice. When she died the hospice call John. He called me afterwards and came to me to sign the papers. He called me and arranged to meet me with the death certificate. He help me in recovering monies that were put in an insurance policy by the other funeral home. MONTHS later he called me to make sure I received the funds. It is so refreshing to come across a funeral director like John who truly cares about the loved ones of the departed. Thank you.

We of The Elmer L. Herman Funeral Home would like to express our utmost appreciation to all who have given us the opportunity to serve you, your families and your loved ones, it truly is an honor.

John N. Bauer, Director and Staff

Dear John,
"Over the years you always kept an eye on me and my husband as we got older by keeping in touch. When Ted passed away so suddenly I knew that I had to call you. You are truly part of our family. Ted looked beautiful and the Military Services at the National Cemetery you arranged sent a chill down my spin. The memory coins you gave me and my children are sacred treasures. I carry mine with me every day. I am sure Ted gave you the thumbs up. I miss him but I know that he is in a better place just waiting for me. When I go please make just as Beautiful and Peaceful."

Judy, McKeesport

"The Herman Funeral Home handled the cremation of my dad last year, I met them when they organized my aunts burial a few years prior. I knew to contact them to pre-arrange his cremation because of what I saw and their reputation in Pittsburgh."

Barbara, Munhall

“I was so impressed with the Herman Funeral Home. Their prices were much less than what we were being quoted. We wanted cremation then burial. At the cemetery we had the most beautiful marine corps veteran service."

Mary, Churchill

“When my brother passed away I called around and choose Herman Funeral Home. They answered all of my questions on the phone and I finally felt reassured. John drove to my home to meet with my husband and I because I wasn't comfortable driving in Pittsburgh. They guided us through the entire service. They gave us options our local funeral home wouldn't. They made it possible to have the service my brother deserved."

Cindy and Don, Natrona Heights
