Dan and Joy Symonds provide experienced and compassionate care to everyone. Their dedication to veterans also shows complete commitment to honor those who served.
I attended the funeral of John James Murphy on Jan 20, 2020. This day will always be in my heart, The day was humbling, emotional and full of love and respect. We were all brought together by a total stranger and left as family. I am sure John Murphy felt the love. I attended with my sister. Like everyone else we did not know what to expect. When we saw all the cars and lines of people it brought tears to our eyes. We talked with several service members, who were touched by the response of community. After paying our respects my sister said "lets move to the back". The only man (Dan) sitting in front row said "why, we are his family" We were honored to sit in front.
Thank you from our entire family for the love, kindness, support, and excellent preparations and funeral for my grandma. Our family will be forever grateful for the professional, kind, genuine caring that you extended to us. On behalf of the Cangialosi & Juntunen Families.
Had the pleasure of working with Daniel with the passing of our Dad. He was extremely patient, helpful and made sure that our Dad was taken care of. With the pandemic, he made sure we understood all the processes and kept us well informed. He answered every phone call, text message or email we sent and for that we were extremely thankful! I would definitely recommend Daniel and his facility to our friends and family.
The folks over at Symonds-Madison are top notch! We know they will be able to take care of any funeral need with excellent service and care. The owners are wonderful people.
Symonds Madison is a family owned business. The owner and director Daniel lives by the model "Everyone that walks through the door is treated like family." I would give the business and owner Daniel a 10 stars but the highest you can leave is a 5. Our family couldn't be happier with the service you provided us during such a devastating time of loss. You understood our needs and went the extra mile to make sure everything was as perfect as it could of been. Daniel, our family is extremely grateful for the warmth and compassion you all showed us. The Keith Family
I came across this funeral home from a google search. My dad was in hospice care and I wanted to prepare myself for the inevitable. I call other places in town but I felt as they were cold and unsympathetic. Daniel took the time from that first phone call to explain the different options. When the time came and my father passed he came to the house and made us feel very comfortable in putting my father into his care. Arrangements were very smooth and thoughtful, His wife Joy did such an amazing job with his obituary. She really capture his life in so many words.
Couldn’t be happier with the funeral service. Through these tough times you’ve made it very easy and simple. The owner was very kind and understanding. Thank you for having the Mora-Albarrán family.
Our mothers loss was very sudden and unexpected. Symonds Madison funeral home was extremely understanding, sympathetic and patient in guiding us through these very difficult decisions and processes. The prayer cards were very well done and we felt reflected our mothers personality appropriately. The family all feel that we made the right decision in choosing Symonds Madison at this very difficult time.
I lost my son friday and Daniel and his wife joy were so comforting to me and my family. Even though my son was to be cremated he gave me a peaceful viewing and made the experience so joyful. They went above and beyond any expectations.
