Sorry this has taken so long but I wanted to take a moment to thank you so much for helping us with my dad's wake and funeral. I am inspired by the work that your family does. Dealing with loved ones whom are grieving and hearts breaking it cannot be an easy occupation. You and your staff made an unbearable time bearable. We miss our dad terribly especially his smile and humor! You made my dad proud!

Thanks for giving my Mom all the care, respect, and dignity she so much deserved upon her death and during her funeral. It was a comforting way to send our 95 year old mother home. Now she can rest in God's arms. I also appreciated having the two little great-grandsons carry her urn to the grave site. That was a very special moment for all of us. Thanks for thinking of it.


Thank you so much for your kind and respectful care of my Dad during the time of his passing, the visitation and funeral. Your staff is both professional and neighborly to all you encounter. It helped to make a difficult time less stressful for my family. I don't know how you do it, but I am so grateful that you do. Thank you!!


Just a brief thank you for making the arrangements for L’s interment. We appreciate everything that you have done for us, and our family. We felt comfortable with all the steps and arrangements and appreciated your professionalism.


Scott – On behalf of the G family, we would like to thank you for everything. Since none of us kids have lost anyone close to us (as all our grandparents were deceased when we were very young or even passed before we were born), you made us feel unpressured and relaxed. So much to do yet, but we’re doing the best we can. God Bless!

C(G)H & the rest of DG family

Deeply appreciate all of the wonderful support and thoughtful guidance you provided to make this go as smoothly as possible.

J, A & SS

Scott – As I’ve told you, you are good at your trade but I can’t tell you how much I appreciated your guidance in this reality of life. You have a kind and gentle spirit with a keen ability to read people. Thank you! P.S. Count on me to be a cheerleader for the preplanning. Thank you also in guiding mom and dad thru all the decision making.

Scott – ...I also want to thank you once again for everything you did for my dad and our family. It was heartwarming and you are like family to me.

Dear Jon, Scott and Boldt Staff: Thank you, sincerely, for your calm guidance through the business of arranging my Dad’s funeral. The service, music, flowers, obituary; everything turned out beautiful. (And thank you for letting us put little N in the pak n’play for a nap during the service.). I would recommend you highly :) Thank you,

B & O S, A & N J, Kids of GJ

No words to thank you for helping us through such a difficult time! (Aces!!) We thank you for all your years of friendship Couldn’t do it without you.

The B Girls

A simple “thank you” is not enough to express my gratitude for all you’ve done for our family. You’re all incredible, caring, and generous people. You made a devastating situation easier to deal with, and I can’t tell you how much it meant to be greeted by familiar faces I’m forever grateful for you both, personally and professionally. There are no words…

Love, AB

We wanted to thank you for helping us give our mom, GB, a beautiful send off and celebration of her life. We appreciate how easy you were to work with, your flexibility for meetings, your responsiveness and overall help with navigating what we needed to do after a death. Knowing we could trust Boldt and not have to take care of so many details, really helped us to focus on the more important, personal aspects of the service. We are so glad our mom chose Boldt and would highly recommend you to others.


Dear Scott & Boldt funeral home, Thank you so much for all that you did for B and the H family. I know they appreciated all the thought and care you put into the service and taking care of all the details. You were so sweet, coming to the house to scan the pictures for the DVD – and on your Saturday off no less! Thanks for holding our hand through this process, being patient and offering ideas, etc. Everything turned out so nice. I’ll always remember how nice you looked at Fort Snelling with those rosy cheeks. I couldn’t believe how well you hid how cold it was outside, looking so calm and collected. Thank you for double checking about her dad being in the service so she could be buried with both parents. Thank you again Scott. You’re the Best!

M, C, S, M, R, K, W, T

Dear Scott, Thank you so much for all that you did to make our final days with our mother so special. You have a great fit in easing the way through this sad and difficult time.

Scott & Kari, We want to express an extra “Thank you” for everything that you did for our family and my mom during our tragic loss. You both have made our loss a little less, if that is possible. You truly have a gift!

M & K U Family & P & M M Family

Dear Boldt fam, “Thank you” just doesn’t begin to say how much we appreciate all of the kindness and guidance through this. Thanks for the music too! Made us smile just walking in the door. I hope M liked the choice we made for him. We are still trying to focus on the love over the loss. Your patience, and more patience and explaining, and repeating what I needed to do is truly appreciated! Every day is a new adventure for us, but having amazing people like you in this world makes it easier.

The L's - J, L, K, R & L

Scott, I just wanted to reach out and thank you for the service that you offered my family during the loss of my mother. It has been almost 7 years since she passed. I don’t expect you to remember me, but my mom was a talked artist that committed suicide. Her name is MM. Your compassion, honesty and empathy is unmeasurable. It was the most pain that my heart has ever endured, but you made it so much easier. Every time I drive by the funeral home, I smile because your genuine soul is so true. I simply cannot thank you enough. You are an angel on earth and I mean that. You are fantastic at what you do. I would recommend your services to anyone 110% and no questions. Also, thank you for taking my feelings into consideration and being kind to me. A funeral is hard thing to plan at 18 years old and I couldn’t have done that without you. Stay amazing!


Dear Scott, My family and I are in awe of you. You are a prince. The way you conduct this whole procedure is just awesome – we have had wonderful help, kind words etc. from everyone, but you and your crew stand out. You are the tops. One could say it’s your job, but we’ve all been to many funerals and they are not conducted like you do it. And besides all that, you found time to train the Eagles (ha!). Super for my family and me. We thank you for all your good help.

JM and Boys

Scott, Words cannot express how truly grateful we are for everything you have done for us. From helping us with a truly unfortunate situation and also taking the time to make sure we were well taken care of. You are a remarkable person that shows true compassion and love for people. Our mom would be so grateful too. Thank you

Dear Mr. Weng It is so hard to lose a mother. It has been a trying time during these past few years. One would think I would have been more prepared. I can’t thank you enough for your professionalism and care in attending to my mother. I am so grateful you were with me on this last leg of the journey I appreciate all of Jon’s work and guidance and the help of your team. And apologize for blundering though so many details. Thank you, Scott, for explaining things to me about the process. It was so helpful learning more of your long-term relationship with our family. It is wonderful to feel so much trust. On behalf of J and our family, thank you so much. Please stay healthy.

Scott, This should have been written 4+ years ago when my father-in-law, H, passed away but I wasn't going to let the opportunity to pass again as I've watched once again your tender care of our loved ones. There are certain people in life that leave a mark etched in one's heart. You are one of those people. Your tender care of H, R and now G is so evident from beginning to the ending of the whole process. I remember sharing some time in conversation through H's process and your gentle words were just comforting but your actions match them up. That's a true gift you've given us! Your gifts of faith, kindness, gentleness, tender care and thoughtfulness. Thank you so much from the bottom of our heats!


The "S" stone you had done for me is exactly what I wanted and know my nephew and wife will be very pleased and surprised. I am so happy. Thanks a million and Blessings to you,


To all at Boldt Funeral Home - Thank you so much for y our warmth and guidance during a difficult time for our family. You all made the planning of our mother's funeral feel almost effortless - although we know there was lots of work going on behind the scenes for all of you. Mom's funeral turned out to be a beautiful celebration of her life, and we want you to know how very much you all are appreciated.
