Dan and Joy Symonds provide experienced and compassionate care to everyone. Their dedication to veterans also shows complete commitment to honor those who served.
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.
Daniel the funeral director has gone above and beyond to help with the entire process. He did an excellent job with my aunt's service last week. Two years ago he helped us with my father in law's service. It's hard to lose a loved one, but finding the right place is important.
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.
Thank you so much for taking the time to make sure everything was the way our family wanted it, for going the extra mile and understanding our unique needs. Your thoughtfulness and kindness are greatly appreciated during our time of grief. Such wonderful and caring people ♡ thank you.
One of the most difficult things in life we go through is the loss of a loved one. When you are the one who is responsible to make their final arrangements, it can be the most stressful experience of your life. My family recently suffered the loss of our dad and Daniel Symonds- Funeral Director/Owner and his staff made me and my family feel at ease and comfortable. They treated us like they were part of our family. Daniel answered all our phone calls with patience. They took care of everything and were compassionate and very professional. They took the time to understand our sometimes complicated wishes and helped explain decisions we had to make. With respect to the level of service of the Symonds-Madison funeral Home, If I could give them 10 stars I would. On behalf of the Ogunribido Family, Thank You. You made a heartbreaking experience manageable and memorable. I'm sure daddy is smiling in heaven!
Dan and Joy provided excellent service and true compassion throughout a process that we never imagined we’d need.
The preparation for my dad’s viewing was a fearful moment for our family, however we knew in our hearts we needed that for closure. I cannot stress how amazing Dan and his team were with every lasting detail, from how peaceful and beautiful my dad looked to us, to the flowers which after nearly a week are full and just beautiful!
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.
My uncle unfortunately passed away from lung disease over a year ago. His financial after life situation wasn’t ideal and it was complicated for my family to handle his funeral arrangements. We thank God for sending us to Symonds-Madison Funeral Services who allowed us to lay him to rest peacefully and without financial burden. They are good people! One of Elgin’s best!
