Thank you so much for the compassion and understanding that you have shown to my daughter and myself after George's unexpected passing. Phil and Krystine were so patient and caring. From the moment we met you did everything to make things more bearable for us. Thank you. May God bless you.

This is the second time I am using Bensing-Thomas. The first was nearly 5 years ago for my husband. They were recommended by an aide at Lehigh Valley Hospital. When I went to make arrangements I was not sorry, The compassion shown by Phil and Krystine was so profound and unexpected. With the sudden passing of my son, there was no other choice for me. Many blessings on these two wonderful people. With much gratitude from Kevin's family.

It was a pleasure to have such a caring couple like Phil and Christine to take care of ALL the arrangements for our friends passing though we were in another State. We arrived for the services and everything was in order. Thank you both for everything you did for us and, our Friend . God Bless you both.

We want to thank Phil and Christine for making a very stressful time in our lives easier to bear. With knowledge and caring they helped us through this trying time. They were a blessing and went above and beyond the usual duties of funeral directors. Thank You!! The Barrovecchio Family

Thank you for helping us through a very difficult time. We lost someone dear to us unexpectedly and were at a loss as to how to proceed. Your funeral director was an absolute godsend walking my Nephew John through all of the steps needed to ensure that our loved one, Brian was cared for and laid to rest with respect and consideration. Your home went above and beyond making accommodations for a private family viewing, helping us find a Rabbi at short notice and making sure that even though it was freezing out, we were able to have a graveside service. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts, Sincerely, The Friedman Family

I still can’t believe Kristi is no longer here. She was so full of life, funny, outgoing, and smart. She was going to college working on getting a business degree. I was so proud of her and she was proud of herself. Kristi was a loving mother to her two children, Aiden and Emma. Her kids were the center of her life. Kristi also loved her family and her friends. And I can’t forget her love of music, any type of music. She will always be remembered

I wish I could adequately express my gratitude to both Krystine and Phil for their excellent, caring service they provided for my husband and our family in our time of grief. I felt this is not just a business for them, its a genuine concern for helping the family transition into a state of peace of mind, that their loved one had the best of care . They went above and beyond in every detail, to accommodate our needs. Thank you so much!

Phil Bensing was a blessing for my family and I when we lost Dad back in April 2014 and then Mom just recently. We were truly unprepared and when Dad was called home Phil was amazing as he walked us through what was an already difficult time. He was very compassionate and understanding and honestly when we lossed Mom on Janaury 28, 2016, I felt confident everything would be perfect despite our heartbreak. I sincerely thank Phil Bensing and the Bensing-Thomas Funeral Home for not only taking care of our loved ones who have passed on but of us as well. My parents both looked so peaceful and I have you to thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Peace and Love Jacqueline Bagu & Family
