Grant us the humility to accept help when we are in need, and teach us to be merciful to all. Through our words and actions, may others encounter the outstretched hands of Your mercy. We ask this through Christ, our Lord. Amen.

~2 Corinthians 1:3-4

My name is Michael R. Goodlander. I am the owner and caregiver of Otto Redanz Funeral Home, where service above self  is my priority-my life’s commitment, as we CELEBRATE LIFE

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 to do so. 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 and commitment 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  "undone," “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!!"

For preplanning, whether you would prefer to make an appointment to gather your wishes or choose to prepay to protect your assets, know we are here and will advise you every step of the way. There is no charge for the consultation. You can even begin the process on this website under 'Pre-Plan.'
