We receive many letters from the families we've served, thanking us for our caring ways during their time of loss. Their words warm our hearts, and speak to you of our professionalism, compassion, and the true value of the services we provide.

I can’t begin to express my gratitude to Dave for how he treated me and my family when my husband passed away. Such a burden was lifted when we were in his hands. He was so kind and thoughtful and made sure all of our wishes were granted. He even made suggestions for things we had not thought of. He thought of everything. My grandparents and my husband's parents were taken care of by Forgie. Even though we live an hour away, my beloved husband was an East McKeesport kid, and there would be no one but Forgie to care for him. Thank you, Dave. Mary Ann Perkosky and family

If I could, I would give the William Snyder Funeral Home 10 Stars! They are extremely well staffed, open to client wishes, and absolutely stellar at conducting business during a very difficult time. They run the process from start to finish and seamlessly flow with client needs and operational changes. In a very difficult time for me and my family, they were outstanding. I can not recommend them enough. Choose them and you will not be disappointed! Mike D.

We have used Snyder's before and knew they would ne the only ones to handle my Husband's arrangements. I selected cremation because I would travel to Galveston, TX for an Oceanside distribution of his remains. Dave was extremely sympathetic and considerate, he even obtained a US Flag for my husband because he was a veteran. Outstanding provider, and I highly recommend them to anyone.

We would like to thank Dave for all he did behind the scenes to assure that the service for my husband Paul was flawless. With his military background , he is the ideal person to be at Snyder's because he is efficient and compassionate. Thank you for the amazing service.

J.W. and Staff of the Snyder Funeral Home, Thank you for the outstanding care you provided for our dad. During our time of loss and sorrow your compassion and support to guide us through and comfort us during a difficult time was greatly appreciated.

Baldridge Family

Dave was such a huge help in helping us through this horrible ordeal of my mother-in- laws passing. He was such a saint and a God send. He truly was looking out for what we wanted and not what he could charge us. When my time comes, I'm telling everyone I want Dave to take care of me. The place Is pretty, and they work with you and your insurance companies and they dont try to pressure you into spending additional money beyond what was needed. Thank you Dave for all the tremendous work you did for us, and with us. We so much appreciate it all! You are a fool if you dont go to Forgies &Snyder!!!

Everything was even more incredible than we ever could have expected! Dave Mahlstedt was so amazing with everything and went so far above and beyond to ensure my father was taken care of and honored with all the military honors he deserved. There isn’t enough thanks my family and I can express to the everyone involved. Dave Mahlstedt, you are a god send and having you there and part of it really made the entire process so bearable that we will never be able to thank you enough.

"Best funeral home in the area. Best staff all around!"

Garry Dixon

"Everything went so smoothly - starting with arranging everything for mom in FL and getting her to PA. Due to the time constraints, mom's sister and sister-in-law went to pick her gown. Neither David or Bill were phased by all the different family members making various decisions. They were wonderful."

Kimberly Bihari

"All of our funeral arrangements were handled by Dave Mahlstedt, the assistant to Bill Snyder. Dave did an excellent job and he is a great representative for the Snyder Funeral Home. He is very personable and he satisfied all of our needs. He certainly should be acknowledged for his dedication and excellent services. He is a very professional man!"
