April 2021 My Dad, Charles L. Riker, Sr. passed away. I live in New Jersey and Dad was from the Gering area. Being out of state I did not know where to go, OR WHAT TO DO. I was recommended by a close personal friend of my Dad's about this VERY NEW FUNERAL HOME. I did not know how to put together a funeral. Luckily Stefanie Gonzalez with her compassion and helpfulness made one of the most difficult times of my life a little easier in a strange state, strange city. Stefanie was very diligent with her work and helped us put together a private family viewing for our Dad that would fit our budget. Stefanie was gentle and kind in a time of bereavement. A family run business by the kindest, gentlest people. They put my mind and heart at ease and helped me along this path at a time when I wasn't thinking clearly. An unfortunate service to need, but when we needed Reverence Funeral Parlor, Stefanie was wonderful with my family. I am so glad I took up the recommendation from my Dad's friend. I am honored to call Stefanie my friend.
I met Stefanie Gonzalez under the worst circumstances of my life. She took the best care of my baby Steven and of me and his dad. It was easy to fall in love with Stefanie because she is just so warm and loving. I remember being so weak and so emotionally drained that I just couldn’t do it..so Stef kindly took the reigns and my son had the most beautiful service. I remember telling her “please take care of my baby like he was your own” and she did exactly that. I later learned she had a big family like I do and I had the absolute pleasure of meeting them all. Our kids all got along and she’s been one of my dearest friends ever since!! Meeting her was insane but also a blessing. Seeing her journey along with her husband Oscar Gonzalez that I also love (sup brooooo) with this funeral home has been nothing short of amazing. You guys will do amazing and I am so proud of you. Any family that knows what it’s like to lose a loved one knows it sucks! But when you get the right person like I got Stef, you know you’ll always be taken care of.
Congratulations you two! I am so happy and proud of you both!
I first met Stephanie when my mother passed in 2011 and she was funeral director where we went. Immediately I felt a peace come over me as I spoke with her about my mother's funeral arrangements. The love for what she does is apparent and sincere. The respect and care she does for the deceased and loved ones that mourn them is a comfort in such a difficult time. There was no question in my mind where we would go when my brother passed in 2015 and then my father in 2017. Her Christian roots are deep in the Lord and that inner beauty of hers mirrors her outer beauty. With Stephanie you feel you are working with a family person and not a business when you go through process of a loved ones death. I trust her completely for the final care of my loved ones.
