“It is never easy when a loved one passes away but calling Rodger at Chadwick McKinney Funeral Home was the best decision we could have made. He answered the phone himself even though it was late at night. He reassured us from the moment we spoke to him. He brought my mother back to the funeral home right away and met with us the next day. He was so kind and answered all of our questions even though we had many. He reviewed all costs and there were no surprises. He was always available by phone or in person for all of us throughout the week leading up to the funeral. We were able to come in to the funeral home early to see my mother who looked so beautiful and peaceful. The funeral home is so lovely and reminds me of home! The attention to detail and the compassion that Rodger McKinney shows can not be found anywhere else. If you have to make a call to a Funeral Home at the time of a passing of your loved one, I would tell you that calling Chadwick McKinney Funeral Home is the best decision you can make!”

“I just want to take the time to say thank you very much for the great care you took of my family during our time of grief. My wife and I were both shocked and saddened by the loss of our child so far into the pregnancy, but you helped ease our pain and made everything a very smooth process for us. Thank you for keeping me up to date with the entire process and the beautiful care you took.....with our child's remains. Thank you also for your generosity during such a difficult time. I have always been very impressed with your professionalism and kindness during every ceremony that has taken place at Chadwick & McKinney. I would highly recommend your services to anyone. And I can't say thank you enough for everything you did for me and my family; you truly made a difference for us, and helped kindly close a sad event in our family and bring some relief to us.”

Your professionalism was outstanding and I know my dad thought he was in good hands with your company. You made the transitions so easy for the family and we thank you for all your hard work and help throughout the process. It certainly is a hard time for the living and you helped make it easier.

“My family and I would like to extend our deepest gratitude to you and your staff, for your professionalism and grace in overseeing the funeral services for our mother. Many members of our extensive family have moved through your doors; each one treated as if a member of your own family. Granted, some of our funerals have been more "light-hearted" than others, but that has never affected the tenderness of your actions. Thank you again for your unending support throughout the processes leading to this conclusion for mom. We are sincerely grateful.”

I know mom was truly in good hands with you; we received many compliments along the way about you and your staff and the fabulous job you did. Seeing firsthand the way you served our family with a true sense of compassion and concern, it is easy to see why the generations of our family continue to call upon your firm to serve them!”

““I am sorry I did not write sooner to thank you for the way the arrangements for my husband were handled by you and Chadwick’s. I expected everything to go smoothly and professionally, but I am grateful for your warmth and your unobtrusive style. I appreciated the simplicity of the arrangements and I hope I was easy for you to deal with as you were for me. I had a lot of compliments-some on the service-some on the words of my children-and a lot of them were due to your care.””


““I wanted very much to write and thank you for you kindness and professionalism last Thursday at my father’s viewing and funeral. You were considerate, kind, and warm to my family and myself. Everyone commented with appreciation of your warmness. Details and our wishes were not overlooked at all, not even once. I think my father would have been pleased with his “send-off” as he put it so many times in reference to others. Many thanks again. You told me that day that you love what you do and it shows.””
