Waycross, Georgia
I was a very close friend to the Violas "Fly" Boyd Family. I want all of your employees and directors just how greatful I am to you for helping this very heart striken family. They loved their family member and they neded peace. You gave them that. You ladies and gentlemna have the biggest hearts, somewhat you do not see anymore. I will be passing on the word through my church and family and friends just how big your hearts are. Continue doing what you are doing and God will continue to bless you. You performed a wonderful service and graveside burial, I was honored that you had the heart to help them, because they had no other place to turn, and God blessed them with you. Thank you so much. God Bless all of you! Thank you so very much.

We sure would of liked to have given Steve Doocy and family our sympathy as we watch him on Fox News everyday. We now live in Arkansas, moving from White City Kansas 4 years ago.

Saginaw, Michigan
Good experience, better than expected from what I have been through with other places. Cost less than expected too. Wish we had gone there with previous deaths in family.

San Antonio, Texas
Affordable, good service, I would recommend Brooks Funeral Home to anyone.

Chris and Suzy Biecker who own M-C are the most caring and compassionate people I have ever been blessed to meet. I walked into M-C the day after my husband passed away unexpectedly and was met by Chris, who helped my son and I through everything. In the short three days between meeting Chris to the day we buried my husband, I can honestly say that I came to love these people. The service they provide is not just a job to them or a source of income... they do it because they care and want to make this process as easy as possible for the family. I urge anyone whose time it comes to deal with having to make funeral arrangements for a loved one to go to M-C... there is no way to make grief an easy experience to go through, but folks like Chris and Suzy and their staff help so much to make it bearable.
