We had a double funeral Which to my knowledge has never been done before but both bodies were beautiful even with the small hiccups I loved the attention Daniel and Joy gave my family. I would love to use this funeral home in the future. Thank you Daniel Symonds and Joy Symonds.
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.
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.
Dan and Joy provided excellent service and true compassion throughout a process that we never imagined we’d need.
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.
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.
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!
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.
I met Joy (Owner) at a community service event. Joy is very knowledgeable,understanding and easy to work with.
My mom's memorial was on Jun 12, 2019. My sisters and I highly recommend Symonds-Madison funeral home in Elgin, IL if you want honesty, be treated with respect. Dan, Joy, Bob and Jim went above and beyond our expectation. Everything went well and more. They answered every questions we have with complete honesty. They will work with whatever budget you have. I love the homey but professional atmosphere that makes you feel comfortable and relax (Funeral-Memorial services always Stress & makes me anxious).
