A letter to Berndt-Ledesma Funeral Home from John E. Berndt, October 31, 2004 ... I want to express our collective appreciation for the professionalism and caring you demonstrated in all aspects of the services provided.  Having much more than a passing knowledge of the funeral business, I can safely say that my father and his brothers -- as well as my mother -- would have been most pleased with every aspect of the services you provided and how you provided them -- and would furthermore be impressed and gratified with the quality and condition of the physical facilities that still bear their name.  Obviously it was very special to me to have Mom's service conducted in the funeral home that was such a major part of her life and still bears her and her husband's name.  ...Again, thank you for everything that you did personally and professionally to soften the impact of this loss on me and my family. 
With sincere regards,
John E. Berndt
