We receive many letters from the families we've served, thanking us for our caring ways during their time of loss. Their words warm our hearts, and speak to you of our professionalism, compassion, and the true value of the services we provide.

To Steve Dillard (owner), I would like to thank you and your staff for handling my Dad’s funeral arrangements. Your staff was so professional and observing to our every need. It actually made my job as the family coordinator a breeze because George and the rest of your staff went above and beyond their normal job description duties. There is no way to describe the feelings for our loss but I can tell you that your funeral home and staff made our lives so much easier. I am a native of Visalia and would have no problem recommending your funeral plan and home to anyone based on your professionalism and dedication to service. Again thank you for everything. May God bless, Cruz Huerta Jr.

Thank you. Two small words for such a big feeling. Your kindness really made a difference... Your thoughtfulness really touched my heart... The gratitude I feel really can't be put into words. Please convey my appreciation to your entire staff too for all their efforts! And additional thanks for taking care of my mother's ashes too and getting the permit so that she and Mike can be together once again. Marsha Blackmore
