Read What Our Clients Are Saying About Us

During one of the most horrific times of our lives with situations beyond our control we happened upon Tharp Funeral Home & Crematory. Not only were their prices below everyone else but their care and concern were amazing. They took care of everything for u...s, helped us with the decisions to be made and made the whole process easier to deal with. Mike Strickland went above and beyond for my family and comforted us with his abilities and care. Tharp Funeral Home & Crematory is lucky to have such an amazing person there. While I don't want to ever think that I will have to use them again in the future, the thought that I have somewhere I can trust if the unthinkable happens again is comforting. Thank you so much for all you did.

My family and I want to thank Tharp Funeral Home & Crematory and especially Bryan Nichols for the handling of Steve being cremated, helping choosing his urn, but most of all getting Steve buried in Arlington National Cemetery with full honors

From the moment our friend Danny spoke to Bryan February 23, 2013 until January 9, 2014, Bryan has been nothing short of incredible.  He was always quick to respond to our requests. If he did not have an answer he would get one and contact me with an answer. Our family could not have done this journey without Bryan and his dedication to help us get Steve buried.

Again, Tharp Funeral Home & Crematory, especially Bryan, was absolutely phenomenal through these incredibly tough times for our family.    My family will always be so thankful for all of the care, love, and support we received from all of you!

To the Staff,

On Dec. 6th, we had the pleasure of using your services for my sisters memorial gathering. You guys did an absolute wonderful job of doing a wonderful job. I was so impressed of your professionalism and your true compassion. The second we walked in the door, an hour early, you welcomed us with such a caring manner. Even though we had driven down from Richmond and under estimated our time of arrival, we were planning on just dropping some food off and returning later. You guys asked us to please stay. After that you guys took the reins and made us feel like part of your family. Again thank you for the wonderful job everyone of you did for my sisters services.

Dear Michael,

Wanted to take a moment to express our gratitude for your handling of Claire's funeral arrangements... It was critical to her mother that she be able to spend time with her daughter to say her final goodbyes and be able to process what had happened.  She spoke to several facilities before deciding to come to see you. She chose your funeral home because you demonstrated the most empathy and willingness to help her achieve her objective. Clearly she made the right choice. THANK YOU is not sufficient to express gratitude for your kindness and compassion in allowing her the extended time she needed to be with Claire. There is nothing that anyone can say or do to lessen the pain that she is feeling following the loss of her daughter, but the time you gave her with Claire was crucial in helping her move forward. She will be grieving for many years, but the time she was able to spend with Claire gave her at least a modicum of peace that would not have been attainable otherwise.
