“Dear Will, This past Saturday, August 28th, at your families funeral home we had a service for my sister Katie Griffin. I wanted to take a moment to thank you for the respect that you gave my Mother, and the rest of my family. The details around the funeral to begin with were very hard for my Mother, so ensuring that her Daughter had a proper, professional service was top priority. In your industry, you are surrounded by the reality that everyone and everything alive succumbs to. The ritual of the dead is one that dates back from the very beginning both biblically and through practices created to please the earth at the time and keep in good faith with the one who had passed. The service you provided us was unquestionably what we were looking for. My Mother will continue her life with one less child, one less beautiful daughter. When she remembers her daughter there will be a stain from events leading up to when she decided to change funeral homes. There will be a lot of emotional trauma that will have to be taken care of and we will have to live with that for the rest of our lives. However, the most important part of what our western civilization has created around the dead, viewing the body one last time, was granted by you. The physical body was not an accurate representation of Katie, because of the several moves and the care it hadn't received leading up to the days the body was released to you. This is not on you and I understand that. But the respect you had for my Sister was the most important to me. A funeral is one of the hardest events any person has to attend, especially when the one laying in the casket is one you dearly loved, thank you for making it just a little easier. Your kindness, respect, compassion, and sympathy are most appreciated. Thank you, Christian Miller.”

We had a bad experience previously at a different funeral home. Harrod Brothers was totally different and everything was so personal and sincere. We couldn’t have asked for any better service for the going home of our family member. Thank you Will, Lauren, Scott and staff.”

Betsy Lippert Dunnigan April 12, 2019

“..I will say I have never been to any facility that offers such hospitality, professionalism, manners, and dignity as was exercised at Harrod Brothers. Your staff and your eagerness to make our sadness as painless as possible was amazing. Your priorities were just not a business point of view, but our hearts in your hands for the time we spend with you all. You have an amazing group and it has made me want to pay compliment and thanks to everyone who took the time to make us feel special. Thank you.”

Melinda Adams-Giles January 21, 2019

“I can't thank Will Harrod and Lauren Prichard and the entire Harrod Brother's staff (family) enough during the end of life process for my son! I cannot imagine how anyone could do this day in and day out but they do and with such precious thought, consideration and care. My son's service was beautiful and I know he would be honored the way it was handled. The Harrods are distant relatives and local friends but treat everyone as if close relative. Returning after hour phone calls within minutes..I would've never thought. You always hear of the emergency crews being on call and high demand which is expected, but this line of work is just as demanding but overlooked. I am grateful for the dedication, comfort, involvement and continuous care.”

Christina Riddle November 23, 2018

“Using Harrod Brothers Funeral Home was like having family assist with the services. Their sincerity was comforting to me. They guided me through every moment. They explained every step and did not attempt to sway me from my path for the sake of financial gain. Will Harrod, Scott Hoover, Lauren Prichard, Barbara Conway, and several others were immaculate in their service. I thank them all.”
