Dear Shetler,

On behalf of my wife and I, we would like to thank you for your diligent efforts in seeing this project to its final endpoint. We are very satisfied with the result. You are a true professional in a very heart-rending trade and we certainly appreciate the empathetic and caring attitude you displayed on our behalf. It’s nice to have this fitting tribute to our dear son placed before Memorial Day.

Take Care,

John and Chris Santichen

Empathetic and caring attitude.

Dear Shetler Memorials,

My daughter and I checked out our memorial stone yesterday and we are very pleased! I can’t thank you enough for the service from beginning to end. It was excellent!


Jane Metzgar

I can’t thank you enough.

Dear Shetler,

I had a number of devastating horrible experiences with our funeral home but your gracious way of doing business made up for it. Thank you ever so much.


Gracious way of doing business.

Dear Shetler Memorials,

We can’t thank you enough for your kindness to us in deciding on the wording for my father’s stone with regard to his WW II service. We’ve had a lot to manage with paperwork and our own emotions with Dad’s passing. Your steadfast advice and your suggestions were most helpful. We appreciate your attention to detail and accuracy. Thank you for informing us about and taking care of the paperwork for Cambria County #50 vet headstone benefit. May God bless you abundantly for your kindness.

Warmest Regards,

Theresa Voyter & Debbie Riek

We can’t thank you enough!

Shetler Memorials,

I very much appreciate all of the good work that you and your company did to prepare and place the memorial marker on the gravesite for my mother, Mary Adeline Berry. The digital image of the marker that you sent to me will be a very important entry into a scrapbook of memories about my Mom.

You handled two situations of delay with great professionalism. First, you waited until my cousin, Karen Martin, verified mom’s year of birth. Second, you were patient about receiving payment for your services from my late mother’s account in Pittsburgh.

Your willingness to communicate by telephone and cellular phone, with me and my cousin Karen in order to facilitate the completion of the project made a great positive difference in the outcome. Should I have the opportunity to recommend your service of crafting memorial stones to anyone in the Johnstown area, I would not hesitate to do so.


James C. Berry

Great Professionalism and Patience

Shetler Memorials,

Thank you so much for helping me with the headstone problem. I really appreciate your courteous service. I know this was not a high dollar transaction for the business but you were as dedicated to high quality service as if it were and the pictures really went the extra mile. I look forward to seeing the site in person.

-Cary Jones

Really went the extra mile!

Shetler Memorials,

I want to thank you for your kindness you showed us during the loss of our son, Tony Gaydos. I am glad we came to you for our needs on finding a headstone for him. We never thought we would find ourselves in this position but you were very respectful to us and did not try to push us into anything that we did not want. Thank you so much again for your kindness during our grief. If I know anyone facing this part of their lives, I will definitely send them to you! Merry Christmas and God bless you and your family.

-Marie and Joseph Donitzen

I am glad we came to you!

Dear Mr. Urbach,

When I was looking for a place to purchase a memorial a friend of mine recommended Shetler Memorials. My friend also said I should talk to Rich Bailey because of an outstanding experience he had earlier with him.

The process of designing the memorial I had in mind took nearly nine months to complete. There were numerous designs, changes, and revisions over that period of time. Mr. Bailey was always there to answer my questions and offer suggestions which were extremely helpful. During that time Mr. Bailey and I were on the phone or exchanging emails nearly every day. Mr. Bailey was always available and quickly answered any question I had. Or when a problem arose he resolved it immediately. I cannot begin to put into words the absolutely excellent assistance and service I received from Mr. Bailey.

The memorial was unveiled on the anniversary of my wife Lisa’s passing. It is a beautiful memorial and a wonderful tribute to my wife. None of this would ever have been possible if it had not been for Mr. Bailey. I will be forever thankful to him.

Thank you very much for having such incredibly great people like Mr. Bailey. He is a true reflection of the excellent company, Shetler Memorials. I would never hesitate to recommend Shetler Memorials to anyone based on my tremendous experience and complete satisfaction with the service and the memorial I purchased for my wife.

-Blaine E. Pynkala

Absolutely excellent assistance and service!

Dear Christina,

The Biel Stone looks great. Actually, I can’t wait to see it in person. Maybe in a year or two I’ll make it back to PA.

Thanks Again,

Michael Paris

I can’t wait to see it in person!

Dear Christina,

From the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU for assisting me and my brothers with the engraving of my parents’ headstone in time for our memorial service the last weekend. It looked absolutely beautiful – even better in person than the pictures you sent. You went above and beyond to help me and honor the time schedule we were on, and my family and I are grateful for that.

Please pass along our appreciation to your team, and particularly your engraver, who made this all possible. Your efforts and your kindness during the process will never be forgotten.



You went above and beyond.


You have made something that could have been very trying into something very touching.

Ever grateful,

Jim and Susan Busony

Very Touching

Christina and Shetler Memorials,

My family and I are very pleased with the headstone. Thanks to all of you who helped with it.

From the Larry Gindlesperger Family

Very pleased.

Thanks, Christina for “making things happen”. My brothers and sisters were happy and surprised that mom’s name was on our parents’ stone already. Job well done.

-John Seesholtz

Thanks for “making things happen”!

I just wanted to thank you for everything you did to design Kevin’s memorial stone. I really appreciated your attention to every detail of the design. Your insight and ideas helped to create the design I had in mind and took it to the next level. You helped to make a difficult time and project easier. The designs at headquarters went above and beyond to help my vision become reality. Please pass my thanks on to him.

-Marian Cyburt

You took it to the next level.

Hi Christina,

Everyone in the extended family who sees my brother’s stone writes us about it. It is so beautiful and represents the life and personality of our brother Ralph so well. Thank you for all of your help to make it happen. I really enjoyed working with you and grateful.

Tom Chiodo

Represents his life and personality!

This is just to say that I was pleased with the service of Shetler Memorials. They were very helpful in the process of choosing a stone and trying to come up with an appropriate design. It was something quite different for me but they are patient and know what they are doing.

Just wanted to let you know.


John Eosh

Patient and Knowledgeable

They made a beautiful headstone for Deacon Herman Lux.

-Grace Etta Lux

Beautiful Headstone

Thank you again for all your hard work and for getting our family a beautiful headstone for our father’s final resting place. Working with you has made this experience much easier than expected.

-James Teeter

Much Easier than Expected


I just wanted to express my appreciation to you for all you did regarding my grandfather’s tombstone. It’s simply beautiful. When I first began considering doing this for my mom, I had no idea where to start.

You made everything so easy for me. I never was worried once we started working together. Your recommendations were right on the money! I love where the placements of my grandfather’s picture.

Sincerely and thank you,


You made everything so easy for me.

You are the best. You have cared for or family since 1968. When we needed someone back then we were impressed by the personal care & kindness you shared. Since then we have gotten stones for our loved ones.

God bless you all,

Beatrice (Penrod) Cameron

You have cared for our family since 1968.
