See what families have to say
Many families reach out after the conclusion of the services to let us know how much our support and guidance meant to them in their time of need, and we’re honored to receive such heartfelt praise. We feel that these messages speak for themselves and we’d like to share them with you.
If you feel we’ve gone above and beyond in supporting you through this difficult time, or would simply like to reach out and say thanks, contact us to share your thoughts. It means the world to us to hear from you and know that we’ve made a difference.
From the family of Carolyn Haley my family and I were so pleased with everything from start to finish. Even though my mothers death was sudden and she did not have anything planned, Alisha at the Greenwood office went above and beyond in helping us plan her funeral to the very last detail and stayed with us until after her burial. Thank you so much!!! The Haley Family

My father's funeral was in Terre Haute In. However his ashes were to be inurned here in Greenwood at Saint Francis and Clare RCC. In the craziness of the planning our request for a funeral director to attend the service got lost with other funeral home. I called about 11:45 am for a service at 1 o'clock. John dropped everything he was doing to drive directly down so we could have what we needed done. Not a short drive either as he was at the East street location. A 25 minute drive both ways for a 5 minutes service. Talk about going out of your way for someone else. He completely saved the day. God bless you John! Words can not express how much it meant that he was willing to help us out.

Thank you to the many staff members of G.H. Herrmann who assisted us with all aspects of my dad's service. The visitation and Masonic funeral service held in Greenwood was beautiful and comforting. The coordination with Aly Funeral Home allowed us to have the celebration of his life and family at his old home place in Southern Illinois on a beautiful spring morning. Your kindness and your commitment throughout the entire process will never be forgotten.

We selected G. H. Herrmann’s because so many other families we knew had done so, and because my mother was drawn to the presence of several grief-support dogs on staff. I am pleased to say that our experience was as positive as I think an interaction with a funeral home could be. Marcia Coffey, John Dice, Byron Murphy, April Herrmann and everyone else we dealt with were as helpful and professional as they could be. The well-appointed and maintained Madison Avenue facility provided a fine setting for our memorial arrangements, and my mother’s indecision about a final resting place came to an end once she saw The Gardens at Olive Branch. We recommend G. H. Herrmann’s highly.

Dear Susan and Dave, Thank you so much for your kindness and professionalism during the recent passing of our mother, Ruby Shrock. Also, please pass our appreciation to your associates who prepared our mother's body for burial. Their fine reputation is the reason we selected G. H. Herrmann. They did not disappoint us. Our mother had been ill for nearly 17 years, yet they made her beautiful again. Their skills helped us cope with this most difficult time and we are forever grateful.

April, Thank you so much for helping us during our time of bereavement. It's never easy to lose a loving parent but your kind demeanor as well as your professional advice encouraged us and directed us - and that was a great comfort. We were very pleased with our Dad's home - going and we thank you again for your caring guidance and support. Your kind expression of sympathy will always be remembered.

Dear GH Herrmann, Thank you so much for all that your company did for my mom's (Betty Bronham) service. Zach was amazing and helped us thru a difficult process. He so kind and helpful. On the service day the director s amazing. He made us feel as best we could. Your make up people made my mom look so beautiful and even better at peace. I've never been impressed by any funeral until this one. Thank you it means the world to me. Lady was amazing too. She provided such a wave of calm for us.
Byron, Thank you for your great kindness and consideration at our profoundly sad time.

You mean so much not only for being the warm-hearted person you are... but also for the generous way you share your time and talents with others Thank You. God bless you always.
Dear Marcia, Thank you for the "Butler" Bulldogs gift card. What a nice and unexpected surprise. We have not used it yet, but we're certain we will find the perfect item to use it on. I apologize for the delay in our thank you. The past couple of months have been a bit crazy. Thank you for all your help in our funeral planning. We do appreciate your answering all of our questions so graciously while we were trying to decide on something so difficult. You are a true asset to the Herrmann family. We have not made it to a Women's B.B game yet, but hope to do so now that life has calmed down. Mike and I are looking forward to the start of the A-10 conference. But what's hard is finding a way to let you know just how much it really meant. Our thanks for all of the guidance you gave us.
Mike and Julie Haskins
Dear John, My deepest regards for you taking the time to share with my "Love, Death and Religion" students from the University of Indianapolis. They were very attentive to your words, but also grew in hearing your humanity and compassion in working with families in their time of grief. Thank you for such a good tearing experience!
Lang Brown Lee
Dear Marcia, Once again, My sincere thanks for your presentation to our "Love, Death and Religion" students from University of Indianapolis! Just you warmth and attention to them makes an important impact, and the student papers reflected a deeper understanding of issues surrounding funerals and an appreciation of our hour with you! Many thanks,
Lang Brown Lee
