    Very pleased with the services provided for my aunt. They took the time to listen and make accommodations for my aunts service such as having her motorcycle inside and the drive to her final resting place being led by her biker brothers and sisters. Highly recommend.

    The entire Christy-Smith family was wonderful to work with in planning and carrying out mom's funeral, especially Dana and Nathan. They were well organized and gracious to all those attending. On behalf of the family for Helen Asher, thank you. You helped send mom off in style.

    Dana and Nathan did an excellent job helping us through a difficult time. Loosing a sibling is never easy, but I felt the caring with each kind word or gentle touch.

    The family and friends of my sister,Rhonda Richards, were very pleased with the kind and considerate help we received at Christy Funeral Home. They were very helpful when it came to helping us fulfill my sisters' last wishes. Dana and Nathan took great care attempting to present my sister as natural as possible which was difficult considering her illness and the condition she arrived in. We would like to thank them for all they did and would highly recommend them in the future

  • "I wanted to make changes as her family hadn't contacted her in years, Brian was so very helpful, relieved all my fears.... I remember as a kid one man saying to my mom 'now this is the man that will take all your money' I hated Harry Christy Funeral Home. But dealing with Brian changed my opinion.... I think Brian did an awesome job. Brian did so much for me....very caring and considerate."

  • I cannot tell how great the staff was to accommodate our requests. They went over and above!! Willing to arrange, work with, everything! The personal care for the family - they made us feel at home, did additional printing and anything asked. Dan was especially helpful - he worked closely with Brian on several things, but everyone was great to deal with.

  • I had no idea we could celebrate my father's life with a beautiful memorial service if we chose cremation. What we received from Christy-Smith Larkin Chapel was a wonderful way to remember our father with a Memorial Service and still honor his wishes of being cremated. Our whole family was appreciative of having the closure.
