On October 10, 2020 Pugsley 'Pugs' Goodlander completed his race and passed the torch to Abby Goodlander to continue his work as a therapy dog at the funeral home. With your help she is adjusting well and continues to do her job diligently. 

My name is Michael R. Goodlander. I am the owner and caregiver of Otto Redanz Funeral Home, where service above self is my priority. Welcome to our website. We take great pride in the loving, gentle, empathetic and patient way we serve our families. It is our 'family tradition.' Our personal, “family feel,” stands out above all, along with our unique guidance, professionalism and service that only we can provide. When we are called and entrusted to walk with you on your grief journey “we are here to serve and are honored. Our true concern is YOU, YOUR family, YOUR WELL-BEING, YOUR journey of grief and YOUR healing......whatever it takes. This is our sincere promise to you....May the God who loves you, bless you and console you always.”  When you are in the midst of a loss, no matter how prepared you think you are or if the death is unexpected, your world is “turned upside down" as you face a "new beginning." You need a guide and a friend to walk with you through your brokenness. “You will be given the quality, attention and service that your family needs all within your budget......guaranteed!!" 

If you are visiting our website thinking of the future, know that pre-planning for your end of life or for a loved ones is one of the most important tasks you could ever do to take the burden off of the survivors.

Losing my mother has been the hardest thing I have ever had to deal with. Laura, Mike and the staff made this transitioning process go so smoothly. They had no problem in helping with decisions to be made that are so hard to make while trying to grieve. Not knowing whats right or wrong, Lauras honest opinions helped me make these decisions that I will be ever grateful for. I appreciate every single thing they have done for my family. Your kindness is much appreciated!
