I would recommend this place to everyone. The staff there is so helpful and patient. They walk you through the entire process and answer all questions.
Dan has proven himself to be a mover of mountains to get things done right. As well as being a TRUE friend of those in the military. I will use him for my own funeral. Thank you Dan for all you do. For Bill Kopecki
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.
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 Symonds provide experienced and compassionate care to everyone. Their dedication to veterans also shows complete commitment to honor those who served.
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.
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.
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!
Dan and Joy provided excellent service and true compassion throughout a process that we never imagined we’d need.
My older brother recently passed away unexpectedly. Our family was in shock and needed to find a funeral director to help plan his services. We do not live in the Elgin area but wanted to find a funeral home near my brother's house. We called Symonds-Madison based solely on the online reviews and I'm really glad we did. Daniel was so helpful to our family during this terrible time. He explained what we should expect during each step of the process and answered all of our questions patiently. He was very responsive to our needs and always answered our calls and emails promptly. He was even able to accommodate some special requests that made my mother and niece feel more comfortable during the visitation.
