Family Testimonials


I wanted to take a moment to thank you, especially Michael Gardner, for your services when my mother-in-law passed away.

Having lost both of my parents in the last 5 years, I know the stress that this process can present.  Your professionalism, caring, friendliness and the services you offered spared my wife from these stresses.  She remarked to me that "They made it so easy."  At a time of loss, that is the best service one could offer!

Thank you

John S. 


I want to thank Michael Gardner and all the staff for their sincere kindness and thoughtfulness to me. Without the extraordinary support and understanding from Michael, I do not know how I would have gotten through this. Thank you Michael and to all the wonderful people at Family Choice Funerals home. Truly and sincerely, 

Bob & Meriam


To Michael and all the Staff,

I can't say enough how great all of you were handling my daughter, Christine's arrangements.  The care and compassion you showed was so comforting.  All of us had a lot of ups and downs, along with certain bumps that no one would believe and won't leave us too soon.  If anyone wants a great and understanding funeral or cremation, you won't be able to beat this one.  No pushing you into anything you may not want and they work on your time line.  You are in charge of all arrangements and they work to meet all of your needs.  I can't express how happy and grateful I am to have worked with a great group of people.  

Lois G.


Thank you for all you have done to ensure that all has gone smoothly this week.  I would whole-heartedly recommend Family Choice.  I appreciate all of your staff to make this funeral so memorable.

Sheila L.


Thank you for your care of my Mami.  My brother, Charlie and I will forever be grateful for the manner in which you showed your professionalism, kindness and compassion in the time of our need.  I will surely recommend your services to anyone who may unfortunately need them.  Again, thans for your patience and compassion.



I just want to take a minute to thank everyone at the Family Choice Funeral Home. You all are amazing and kind hearted. From the moment I called and went into your office I felt very welcomed and at ease. I know that our case has been slightly complicated but the staff there were kind and never judged but did all they could to help my bury my father and fulfill his last wishes and there are no words that express my gratitude. Tonight you allowed us to visit him and talk to the minster and with all the time we took never felt rushed. You did a wonderful job on my dad and he looked really good. Please thank your entire staff for everything that they have done.

Janetta G.


Thank you for all you did for Crystal and I over the past few months.  All of you were gracious and kind, accomodating any request we asked of you.  We ill never forget you during this very sad time.  You guys were sunshine!

Brenda H.


Thank you for everything and for being so patient with my mother and I.  I know we were very disorganized and unprepared but having guys like you to coordinate with made everything so much easier and a little less stressful.  I can't express in words how much I appreciate the help you provided us!

Sarah D.


I would just like to thank you for the services you provided for our family. All of your staff showed us extraordinary kindness and compassion. You took such good care of us and gave us the guidance we needed at a difficult time. The video tribute that you put together to honor my mother was so beautiful and we will treasure it always.

Thank you.

Sheila M.


Thank you so much for going above and beyond in helping me. Ron's service would not have been as beautiful without your kindness and support. Sincerely,

Rita R.


Family Choice did and exceptional job for us when my wife passed away. You were exceptional and professional in all aspects of the arrangements. The whole staff at Family Choice left nothing to be desired. They were always ready and willing to assist and answer any and all questions we had. I would recommend them to anyone who desires the kind of compassion and understanding one needs because of the loss of a loved one. Thanks to each and everyone of you at Family Choice!

Lewis N.


I was just looking at Mom's page and wanted to thank you again for the awesome job you did for us in our worst of times. You handled a lot more than I ever expected, and did a stellar job. I have no words to truly express the depth of my gratitude. Thank you and I wish nothing but great things for you, your family and your business.

Donald P.


Hi Mike, I wanted to personally thank you for your excellent service and personal attention in the handling of arrangements for my sister-in-law. My brother, as well as the rest of the family, were very pleased with the dignified way that everything was conducted. Please pass our gratitude on to your team as well, for your excellent professional work. It was greatly appreciated during our time of grief. Sincerely,

Lyn T.


During one of the most horrific times of our lives with situations beyond our control we happened upon Family Choice. Not only were their prices below everyone else but their care and concern were amazing. They took care of everything for us, helped us with the decisions to be made and made the whole process easier to deal with. Mike Strickland went above and beyond for my family and comforted us with his abilities and care. Family Choice is lucky to have such an amazing person there.

Megan P.


My family and I want to thank Family Choice for the handling of Steve being cremated, helping choosing his urn, but most of all getting Steve buried in Arlington National Cemetery with full honors. From the moment our friend Danny spoke to you until Steve was buried, you have been nothing short of incredible; always quick to respond to our requests. Our family could not have done this journey without you and your dedication.

Penny, Steve Jr. and Susan W.


Steve, Stick, & Emma, Words like "exceptional," "outstanding," and "awesome" seem inadequate to express how our family views the service you offered for our family. Dad looked so wonderful in his casket, and it was a real comfort to all of us. We were very happy that we saved so much money when we chose you all to help us, but we feel that what we received with you was worth all of the extra money we didn't have to spend! Thank you, from the bottom of our hearts!

Kenneta F.


Dear Mike and Staff, Thank you so much for honoring my husband... Your thoughtfulness is very appreciated.
