From fixing the obituary at the last second, to allowing my daughter to have a private visit the day before, to setting a special time for his step-mother to view him, these things were above and beyond the normal services.

We will always be grateful.

    The Joseph Monistere Family
  • I just wanted to send this out to thank everyone who had a hand in making my father’s farewell a beautiful and peaceful experience. I have never experienced a loss or this kind of pain, but the Brandon G. Thompson Funeral Home took care of my father was amazing! I have heard Martha’s voice through radio advertisement, but it wasn’t until my father’s passing the words clicked. “Care, Compassion, Commitment.” I first met with Jodie Saia and I must say that just the tone of her voice immediately gave my inner peace. Both Chad and Jodie went to great lengths to lighten my load. I can’t imagine what it must be like to provide this type of service to people, but I do know that our community is very fortunate to have your establishment here for us. Your staff truly performs every detail with their heart. I am thankful for everything.
