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.
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.
Symonds-Madison Funeral Home went above and beyond when it came to planning my son’s cremation. I’ve never had any experience with this, but they made everything easy to understand, helped walk us through everything, and I was even given helpful materials as a grieving mother. I love the fact that this is a family run, local business and it’s apparent they really care about what they’re doing and the families they are helping. I cannot recommend them enough to help through the difficult process of planning any services.
When my sister passed away the thought of going to a funeral home to help set arrangements was just too much to bear. I'm glad to have met Dan, he was truly genuine in the process and respected everyone's wishes. Her funeral was was beautiful, the floral arrangements were beautiful and the entire staff was very helpful. Overall they helped us on the hardest day of our lives by being very sympathetic and kind to my sister as well as our family and friends.
The sudden and unexpected passing of my husband left me in shock. I wanted to insure he was buried with full military honors. My daughter used google to locate a funeral home that specialized in military services. Mr. Daniel Symonds greatly exceeded my expectations at all levels. His compassion, empathy and appreciation for those who served was evident. He went above and beyond to make the entire process seamless and worry free for the entire family. When the services were concluded I felt my husband was given the respect and love he deserved for serving his country. I highly recommend Symonds-Madison Funeral Home to anyone during their time of need military or non military.
Dan and Joy were great and treated our family like they were their family! I really can’t thank the staff enough for helping us turn a tragedy into a celebration of an amazing life.
Dan and Joy did a wonderful job with all my Mom's funeral arrangements. They were quick to respond to E-mails and phone calls. They really care about doing quality work and providing really good service. I am grateful for all their help in working with my Mom's nursing home, the cemetery, and the florist. Their florist does amazing work that went above and beyond all expectation.
Dan and Joy provided excellent service and true compassion throughout a process that we never imagined we’d need.
It took way too long to write this review, but I still feel my experience should be shared. When my mom passed away in 2018, I knew she wanted to be buried and not cremated. I wasn’t sure how I was going to afford a burial plus a memorial that I felt she deserved. Dan worked with me and didn’t make me feel ”less than” if I declined anything. They don’t play on your vulnerabilities during a hard time and that is appreciated. I also had special circumstances regarding my moms needs, which I was afraid would double the cost of the funeral, but he was able to find a special casket that I could afford. My grieving process was easier because of they way they took care of us.
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.
