We could not be more happy with our experience at North Ridge Funeral Home in Sparta. From that first phone call on that heartbreaking evening of my father's passing to the burial at the cemetery. All of the staff at North Ridge Funeral Home was so caring, professional and personable. The physical viewing was done very natural and with great care. I will be forever grateful to them for giving all of us peace and comfort during this time.

Pederson Funeral Home staff: We cannot begin to thank you enough for everything you did for us when dad passed away. Tim Valk was absolutely amazing as was the entire staff who showed such kindness and professionalism during this difficult time for us. We never would have been able to do it without all your help. You were so considerate of our feelings and emotions at that time. The entire family expresses their gratitude. Again, thank you so much for your kindness.

When you are faced with the death of someone who is dear to you, you are blessed if you have the staff of Pederson's at your side. The staff is always there for the family and they take care of the smallest details. You really don't have to worry about anything. I highly recommend Pedersons and appreciate everyone of the staff that helped my family in our time of need.

We just wanted to thank you for taking care with our Mother and Treating the Family with respect. We were all at a loss what was to be done and you walked us right through it. Everything fell into place at the funeral and went very smoothly, Thank you for such a wonderful job at such a hard time for us.

We were very pleased with the service we had received for our mother. David Fields went above and beyond what was expected as a funeral director, we had special little touches that we wanted to have during the funeral and David made sure they were taken care. He wanted to make sure we were happy with the way he had presented our mother with dignity and asked if we wanted any other touches done, and after the funeral he had called to see how we were doing. When Christmas time came around David and the family had a special memorial service with lighting of a tree and a special ornament with our mothers name engraved on it, which we thought was very special. We could not have asked for a better funeral director to take care of our mother in her passing and to be there for the family. Thank you very much; everything you did was very much appreciated.
