"Brygan Cremation & Burial of Los Gatos is family owned and operated by Andrea and Jim Habing. They have provided cremation and burial services for approximately 30 years. I am a Los Gatos attorney and have worked many times with the Habings and the the families to whom they provide services. I have had much opportunity to observe the Habings interact with and provide service to their families. Andrea and Jim work closely and diligently to provide the right atmosphere at this time of loss. I have observed both of them to be extremely empathetic. The Habings are friendly hard working people who provide affordable service at Byrgan Cremation and Burial. They are almost always available to talk to families that they assist. They also interact with various churches to make sure that the services are done to the satisfaction of their families."
"Andrea Habing was very professional, knowledgeable and prompt in handling my wife's cremation. They handled everything from picking up and storing the body, contacting the authorities, filing the paperwork, obtaining death certificates and the cremation. Andrea was also very compassionate during this difficult time. I recommend Byrgan highly."
"I worked with Andrea Wood Habing when my brother passed away. From start to finish she was kind, efficient, helpful, and provided unbelievable service! Andrea really listened to what we wanted, gave helpful suggestions and needed information. Andrea was so supportive, throughout the entire process. My brother's funeral service ended up just what I wanted for my family. Andrea and all the members of her team were such professionals--they know their business and they are able to make a positive difference in this very, very difficult time. My family was so happy to have selected Byrgan Cremation & Burial. Bergen's coordinated their services with the Stanford Hospital, St Mary's Church, Los Gatos Memorial Park, Florists, Newspapers, Restaurant, and so much more. This is a family business who truly cares and will take good care of your loved one. Thank you so much"
"My Dad recently passed away. My sister called Byrgan on a Sunday afternoon. They came to the hospital in two hours to pick him up. A RN was very surprised that they were so fast.
We had to deal with the 4th of July weekend, so it took a little longer to get his death certificates. Andrea Wood Habing personally delivered his urn and death certs.
Mom decided to purchase another prepaid cremation plan.
I recommend this service to take care of your loved ones."
"My husband recently passed away and I met with Andrea to make final arrangements. She was very compassionate, helpful, knowledgeable and listened to what the family wanted.
I inquired about burial at Arlington National Cemetery. She immediately called her husband Jim to see what the requirements were. They followed up on every time consuming detail and went out of their way and helped with the paperwork. Jim even marked pages in the catalog so that I would select the correct size urn for the niche. Andrea suggested a different size font to be inscribed on the urn than what I had selected. I took her suggestion and the final results were awesome!
The family really appreciated the way they listened and made suggestions which were very helpful during this difficult time in our lives.
We highly recommend Byrgan."
"During such a difficult time, Byrgan exceeded all our expectations. I never write reviews, but after one of the most important events of my families' life, I felt like I had to share our experience. They picked our loved one up at the requested time and personally answered all phone calls (no answering service). Not only were they able to accommodate special requirements such as the casket rental for the formal Catholic funeral service followed by cremation, they helped with our special music request during our families' private visitation with our loved one. They did everything with such care and reassurance that we never felt lost. They even came through after a late night request for easels which we needed for the funeral service the next morning. We never felt pushed or even asked to purchase anything extra. We have no doubts that Byrgan is part of our family, and will definitely use their services going forward."
"Brygan Cremation & Burial and Andrea Habing are fabulous. A death is always a very difficult time to go through and Andrea helped us each step of the way. She was very professional, courteous, and helpful. She even provided help after the use of their services, for which we are very grateful. I highly recommend Andrea and Brygan!

Very friendly, caring and thorough service. They were extremely patient as I was a mess and quite lost after my father's death. But they helped me through it all, assisted with every aspect: the death certificates, prayer cards for the Catholic service, paying for services others would render so we wouldn't have the burden of dealing with so many, and of course the memorial/funeral mass and burial, they handled with grace and dignity. Andrea Habing was wonderful throughout, and I am extremely grateful for her. Their prices seemed very reasonable, and they never in any way tried to push sales or hard sell with me. They did quite the opposite, letting me know when certain things weren't necessary for me to purchase. I was quite impressed and, again, very thankful.
