I have worked with Don and the staff at The Borgwardt Funeral Home for the past 15 years as I minister to families during the funerary process. Without exception, every family that I have referred to this funeral home has been very satisfied with the level of compassion and professionalism of the directors and assistants. I always refer my church members and other Beltsville residents to The Borgwardt Funeral Home. When my mother-in-law passed away in 2009, my wife and I leaned on our friends at Borgwardt's to carry us through the arrangements process. I highly recommend them to you.
When I join my husband, this is where I'll go. Such wonderful people- not sales- kindness and compassion. If only more people were like them.
I cannot say enough nice things- from the time my husband passed till just a couple days ago. My husband had a sudden heart attack and was gone in a matter of minutes. At all times, so professional yet loving and caring. They have called and checked on me several times. Really some of the very best people.
Ms. Jessie and Crew, I would like to take a moment here and especially thank you during the time of my father’s funeral. More specifically, helping me obtain the death certificate, to sit down with me explaining our options and assist us with the overall process. I just want you to know is your assistance was greatly appreciated and we couldn’t have done it without your help. We deeply appreciate and gratefully acknowledge your kind expression of sympathy. It will always be remembered by our family.
A note of heartfelt thanks for the care provided to cousin Gary. Leanne was patient, kind, and knowledgeable! And Cathy and her midnight call…well, her compassion was most appreciated. Everyone was not only professional, but caring too, and this means so much at this challenging time of a person’s journey.
Our dad’s memorial service turned out beautifully. This was due in large part to your warm hospitality. Thank you so much for making that easier for us!
Jessie- Tremendous “thank you” to you and your team. Mother arrived in the British Virgin Islands with everything in place. The professional guidance, compassion, and caring of everyone I encountered at the funeral home was amazing from beginning to end of the process. All is greatly appreciated.
My brother and I chose Borgwardt after interviews with two different funeral homes. We made the right choice! Cathy and Jessica were compassionate, kind, and caring. They guided us to make the choices that were best for our family without ever pressuring us or trying to sway us in a particular direction. Our 98- year old mom looked amazing and so natural. Borgwardt helped us with everything including preparing a DVD, the obituary for the newspaper and the funeral home website. Everything went off without a hitch. Borgwardt also offers grief support through daily emails. I have found them very useful and comforting. I highly recommend others avail themselves of this service.

Dear Friends at Borgwardt, Many thanks for your help in planning William Bruce’s funeral. Jessie was so kind and understanding. We sincerely appreciate the guidance throughout this difficult time in our lives. Most sincerely, Karen J. Bruce and family
The Borgwardt Funeral Home handled the recent funeral for our father Robert Banwarth in a very professional and caring manner. The staff and management went above and beyond our expectations. The Borgwardt representative (Jessy) made sure that all of our concerns were met and completely addressed. Many Thanks from the Banwarth Family!
Despite having to coordinate and organize viewing, church service, and graveside burial of our beloved mother with myself , in Las Vegas and her two other daughters in Md. the Borgwardt Funeral Home went above and beyond call of duty to ensure that all my Mom's last wishes were fulfilled. My heartfelt thanks go out to them for making this very difficult time less stressful and making sure that no small detail got overlooked !!! I received much positive feedback on the way they had viewing room and video of her life set-up.
My husband had been sick for months and went from 210 lbs to 145 lbs. When we first viewed him he looked like the picture of him before he became sick- it was a wonderful memory for all of us family and friends to see him look the way he did- this was a great gift for the almost 200 people who showed their respect.
Our family has used Borgwardt Funeral Home for several members of our family's passing. They did a wonderful job for my mom and dad's celebration and now my son's celebration who passed away unexpectedly. I highly recommend them.
Body prep was excellent, the deceased looked way better than expected.
The staff was considerate and understanding, taking time to answer all questions.
We weren't pressured to purchase expensive items.
We are always interested in hearing from the families that we serve. Please take a moment to let us know how well we served you in your time of need. We very much appreciate your feedback.
