In a time of such overwhelming sadness, Roberts, and particularly Kelly, did such an amazing job. He made it an experience personal to Tim - husband, father, son, brother, and friend to so many - creating a memorial that reflected who he was. They even released quail at the funeral over the more typical doves to reflect Tim’s love of hunting and nature. Kelly oversaw everything on a personal level, giving comfort to us all through the entire process. I highly recommend Roberts for a personal, one of a kind way to honor your loved one.

Roberts Family did such an amazing job helping us with a loved one's funeral. Our loved one's wishes for his end of life were a bit complicated, due to him relocating to MN from CA, and Kelly went above and beyond helping these wishes become a reality. He spent much time researching and verifying details, which took a lot of stress off of our family. He even drove several hours to the burial location, and helped facilitate the services there. It truly was a blessing to work with Roberts and I highly recommend ! Thank you again Kelly and all of Roberts Family!

Planning our loved one's funeral was unusually complicated as it involved prior planning by him from several years ago and across more than one state. Kelly Roberts was able to resolve the many issues and helped us plan a funeral that was very personal and comforting, especially during these challenging times. He is a knowledgeable professional and yet so very warm and caring. Our family felt confident and at ease with Kelley in charge. We highly recommend Robert's Family Funeral Services.

Kelly and Staff, Thank you so very much for all the many things you did to make Marjorie’s services so very special. We know it wasn’t easy with your limitations with the COVID-19 but you did a fabulous job. She looked so beautiful and the room and all the pictures/videos for the wake were beyond compare. It was very moving and touching to us. Your extra attention to all the many details and the many extra things you did will always be remembered and appreciated. You and your staff are very caring and compassionate. You have the gift of providing great comfort with the death and funeral process. We are really so very grateful for all your help and for all that you have done to make this difficult time so memorable. God bless, Chad and Roni Carpenter

Thank you to Colby and staff for a truly memorial celebration of Jacks life. You knew all 28 family members names and where they came from, pretty amazing. You personalize something that is very personal without being invasive. That takes great skill and understanding. We are forever grateful to you. Thank you!

Thank you so very much for all you wonderful efforts in making Pat Zane's Service fantastic! All went extremely well & people are calling it beautiful. You might be called Roberts Family meaning "family of Roberts but your caring passed to the "family" of the deceased. With much appreciation, Pam & Bob R., Jaci & Ernie E.


I just wish to thank you for how graciously you handled my mother’s funeral. She looked beautiful. I couldn’t have imagined Tim capturing her true self better and we were treated with care and respect right down to the smallest detail by the owner and all staff involved. This has been such a difficult time for all of us and you all helped make it go smoothly and ease some of the pain and stress associated with the process. We couldn’t have asked for more. Thank you and God bless you all for your kindness.

Just wanted to personally thank you and Kelly Roberts for all the help you gave to both mom and dad, and the rest of the family as we moved through the grieving process and formalities that followed during the visitation, funeral service and memorial service at Fort Snelling for our mom. I am truly grateful to you both for your help, advice and caring manner in which you handled all the details. I know that dad was especially pleased with the service and personal attention you gave to him and the rest of the family - I am also. So thank you once again, for going above and beyond to make sure everything went so smoothly. Your concern for our family was quite evident throughout the process and greatly appreciated by us all.
