Dianne, Anne and Dan, It is the morning after for us. We are reflecting back on a beautiful two days of celebrating our father's life, and feel a real sense of peace and gratitude. Thank you Dan, Anne and Dianne, for everything you've done to support our family through this funeral process. From showing up at Riverview Gardens at midnight in your suit Dan, to the painstaking work on our photos and the funeral card by you Dianne and Anne, to the many little details we hadn't thought of that you marshalled us through, and your quiet guidance during the Visitation and the funeral Mass...we are appreciating very much the professionalism, compassion and effectiveness of your work. We have been hearing from others how highly regarded your work is in the community - it is a reputation well-earned. A heart-felt thank you from Denny, Mary Jane, Scott, David, Michael and Tim Patterson and family

My family is so grateful that Dan and Anne Houle were available to us at the time of our father's passing. What a relief to have Dan come to our family home to deal with all the details. He listened carefully to what we wanted, made suggestions for our consideration and then took care of every detail. Anne was a wonderful source of information and advice. Our family was well cared for from our first meeting to the final details and even have had advice after the service. Alexander and Houle set a new standard for the care of grieving families and their loved ones.

As a funeral director myself, I can not stop raving about the exceptional care my family received when my father died in March. Compassion, sensitivity, well appreciated hugs. A funeral home staff that takes the time to sit, listen and treat you like you are a part of their family meant the world to us. No pressure from Dan with having the funeral home I’m with offering to do things for me. Dan, you have no idea what that meant to myself and my family. Anne, her prompt assistance and attention to detail regarding the estate benefits service took pressure off our family. From one funeral director to another I applaud and extremely appreciate everything Dan, Anne, Dianne and all the staff at Alexander and Houle did for our family. Alexander and Houle went above and beyond our expectations. The families of Chatham-Kent are extremely fortunate to have such a wonderful caring funeral home team!

Words cannot express the gratitude and thanks our family feels towards Anne and Dan at Alexander & Houle Funeral Home. They made the process surrounding the loss of my mother as simple and stress free as possible, making us feel at ease with the decisions we made. Their support was professional and knowledgeable, and did not end the day of the funeral, but has continued with Anne’s assistance in taking care of the paperwork. Somehow thank you does not seem to be enough, but thank you Anne and Dan.

We are so very grateful to Alexander & Houle Funeral Home for the kindhearted support we received from Anne and Dan Houle and their staff when our dear Mother passed away in August 2022. Our dear Father’s funeral was held there as well 28 years ago and I remember feeling the same then. Their offer of ongoing support as needed was and is, a much-needed source of comfort as we deal with the aftermath of our loss. Gratitude beyond measure to Alexander & Houle Funeral Home for lessening our burden during our most difficult time…..a heartfelt thank you for everything to them all.

Dan and Anne. Just a short note to thank you for all that you have done to make my mom's passing just a little bit easier. Your kindness and your compassion in everything you do was amazing. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Recently, my sister passed away, leaving her only child behind to take care of her arrangements. Not sure where to turn, my wife and I brought her to talk with Dan. He was so kind, caring, and compassionate with my niece, that it took a lot of the fright out of moving forward. He gave her great advice and assured her that her mom was in good hands and would be taken care of. Dan even lead the procession to the cemetary on his Harley, as my brothers and I as well as my son and nephew, all ride. We cannot express enough, how much our family appreciates everything you did for us all at such a tough time. Thank you Dan and Anne!!

The team at Alexander and Houle has been with my family and I for three very important occasions. Each and every time they managed to make the hardest life transitions as seamless as possible. Both during the funeral preparation and the trying times afterwards they were incredibly helpful and supportive. I couldn't imagine relying on anyone else for such important matters. Thank you for the continuous support and doing such a wonderful job!

There are days in this situation, when your Dad passes that you don’t know how you are going to get through such a tremendous loss. Then you are fortunate to have people in your life who don’t just do there job but they become family and that’s exactly what Dan and Anne are, always so kind and generous. They are a Godsend, helped us in every aspect of our journey, guiding us when we had to and letting us find our own way when we could. Always there to answer any questions, no matter how often you ask and always leaving you with a sense of peace. Our family is so grateful to have you not only in our lives but to have you when we need you most. With our ever loving gratitude, we truly do thank you. The Billingham Family

The Houle’s and staff are understanding, and the most compassionate people you would ever want in your time of need. They treat you personally and fulfill every request you can think of. They were like family to us over the past two years. Thank you for being there when we needed you the most.

My wife Rebecca and I have had Anne and Dan look after our needs on more than one occasion. We are very impressed with them. As well, other members of our family and friends have needed their services and were also impressed. They are the best, like family, extremely professional. They make a time in your life that can be so stressful and difficult go much smoother and less hectic. They strive to meet any and all of your needs like it's no problem at all, they just do it. You will not find a better funeral home.
