"Bruce McMichael is a friend and a wonderful person! He did a good job and the deceased would have been pleased with everything! Bruce still calls and keeps in touch to see how I'm doing."
"Bruce was very compassionate and caring. Everything was done in a very professional manner."
"The arrangements were of the best all around. Mr. McMichael was so generous. Everything tastefully arranged and done with such care."
"I appreciated the caring and consideration given to the wishes of the deceased and our family. Mr. McMichael made the entire process as easy as possible, not pushy, very professional."
"Bruce and his whole family have been friends of our family for over 45 years. Bruce was very caring and helpful in all the decisions we had to make. Exemplary professionalism!
"Bruce McMichael provides a very caring and professional service. He is absolutely great to work with."
"On behalf of the entire family I would like to thank you for your heartfelt sympathy and prayers!

"Bruce, Words cannot express how much we appreciate what you have done for us during our loss. We can't thank you enough. Darla, thank you so much for the cookies. Your friendship is truly a gift to us. Thank you again, please keep in touch! God bless."
"Mr. McMichael, Thank you so much for being there for our family. The lengths you went through to help ease the pain do not go un-noticed. We appreciate everything."

I can't thank you enough for everything you have done for myself and my family during this very difficult time. Everything went so smoothly and the service was beautiful and a nice tribute to my mother. Thank you so much for everything!"
"This was a terrible thing made easier for me, by the kindness, helpfulness and courtesy of Bruce McMichael, the Director"
"I would and have recommended this funeral home to any of my friends who will listen. I cannot tell you how kind Bruce McMichael has been to me and my family. He even sent me a check for money which I had evidently overpaid because the newspaper had dropped the charge of the obituary and I didn't know it. He gave me extra folders and thank you notes because we had over 300 at the Memorial Service (at no extra charge). He has sent me grief folders to read and called me to let me know that he received my check and inquired about how my family is doing. These people are Christians and just great people. I am privelidged to know them. "
"The funeral was in another state but I was able to present to the clergy a very nicely prepared letter regarding my mother which had been prepared at the funeral home. I especially like the "How to Get Through the First Weeks and Months After a Death" literature which Mr. McMichael sent. His follow-up phone calls were very comforting. I could not have had better service!"
"Dear Bruce, Thank you for all you have done regarding my mom's funeral. It has been such a comfort and a blessing to know that we could trust you to properly care for my mother. Yesterday, we received the memorial in her honor. What a beautiful thought! This meant so much to our family. We praise God that mom is with the Lord, and we are so thankful and grateful that you [played an important part in her journey to heaven. Thanks again for your prayers and support."
"We cannot say enough positive things about Bruce McMichael--his compassion, his honesty, his integrity and his professionalism. We truly appreciate him and his services."
"Dear Bruce, Just a note to let you know how much I appreciated your words of encouragement and thoughtfulness. They really meant a lot to me, and I know many others have felt the same way about you. Sincere thanks."
"Mr. McMichael was so very kind and caring. Being a Christian family, we know he is a Christian also. He is a true asset to his profession."
"Mr. McMichael contacted us several times after the funeral just to check to see how we were doing. This is above and beyond what he needed to do. So caring!"
"Bruce does an excellent job with all aspects of the funeral before and after. Always checking up on all those who have lost loved ones to see how they are doing."
"Everything about the services offered by the McMichael Funeral Home was excellent. I would surely use them again and recommend their services to anyone."
"I don't know how we would have gotten thru making the arrangements for our son without the heartfelt caring of Bruce McMichael. I would recommend the McMichael Funeral Home to everyone. "
"Bruce McMichael is a very compassionate and caring person and is very easy to work with. Very sweet person!"
"I want to sincerely thank you everything you did to help me and especially for your prayers. They are so important. Our family thought that you did a wonderful job for us and we are so grateful. May God bless you for all the good you do."
"We can't thank you enough for making the service run so smoothly. You made things personal, easing our grief. Your calls and notes were so heartfelt."
"Thank you for doing an excellent job. Thank you for your kind heart heart and being here for my family over the years in our times of need. It is greatly appreciated. Many thanks."
"We appreciate all the love, concern and help that Bruce offered during this difficult time. He came to our home prior to my mom's passing to help begin the process. After my mom's passing, Bruce followed up with calls and notes in order to support and assist us in any way. He did an excellent job pereparing my mom's body, making her look 10 years younger! This really helped us with closure--remembering my mom the way she looked before becoming ill. He did a fantastic job, and we are so grateful.
Thank you for your compassion and caring following the death of my son. We appreciate your time and professionalism.
Bruce, I don't throw compliments around, but I cannot possibly print words into this card to correctly and completely express my gratitude. The words don't exist. Your combination of "personal" and "professional" is truly perfect, in what can be some of the darkest few days in some people's lives. Absolutely everything--perfect. GOOD JOB.
Dear Bruce The kind, generosity of special people like you has been a great help to us during this very difficult time. Thank you for honoring her memory with your meaningful tributes that you gave to us during our time of sorrow. Thank you so much for your loving support. On behalf of our family, I offer you our most sincere gratitude and love. Yours sincerely.
Bruce, It's hard to put into words how I truly feel, but I do want you to know, we all felt you did a great job of offering comfort and care. Thanks from the bottom of our hearts.
Bruce, Thank you so much for your sincere compassion and help with my Dad's final arrangements. You and your family are truly a blessing and comfort to people in a time of great stress and grief. The literature that you sent has been very helpful and much appreciated. You did a wonderful job with my father! Thank you!
Bruce, Thanks for the kindness you showed to our family. You made a difficult time much easier to get through. Thanks again!
Dear Bruce, It's hard to find words to express the gratitude, respect and Christian love I feel toward you. When Christians use the phrase, "come along side", that's what you've done in a perfect way. Thank you for showing a perfect example of God's grace. How you helped...nothing was short of miraculous. You made an unbearable time, bearable for all of us. I know that your reward will be great in heaven! You are a true gentleman and I am proud to call you my friend. God bless you and your beautiful family.
Mr. McMichael, I just wanted to drop you a line to personally than you for being so kind and helpful when I called you. You chose the right profession. Your ministry made my heart sing. I helped you at a nursing home when you came to pick up someone and even though we know you were picking up an empty body, you had the most respect and kindness. I thank God for showing you the right profession. It is your calling. God bless and thanks again.
Dear Bruce, Your caring personality made you a part of our family. We are all very appreciative of your professional, personal service. Most sincerely yours.
Dear Bruce, I so appreciate all of your support and kindness during this time. You're helping to make this life transition much smoother. Thank you for providing the information on grieving and what must be done.
Dear Bruce, Thanks so much for helping me again. You were so busy, but found time. You are one-in-a-million Bruce, so thoughtful and kind!
Dear Bruce and Darla, The funeral was just perfect in every way. I know he would say so, Bruce. God gave you this calling and you do it for the glory of our Lord. I am so grateful to both of you.
Dear Bruce and Family, Thank you so much for all that you have done for us during this difficult time in our lives. You have touched our hearts knowing how kind you were and you will continue to be in our prayers from this day.
Dear Bruce, We have had such an incredible experience with you Bruce and the establishment you represent--we couldn't believe the care and compassion on such a reverent level as was represented by your services. Consistent and caring, compassionate and kind. I felt bolstered by your guidance the entire time and that was so needed and appreciated. I hardly have words. "Thank you" keeps coming to my mind even as the weeks pass. Warm regards from our family to yours.
I can't thank you enough for the beautiful service. Your kindness and helpfulness go above and beyond. It is such a time of complete helplessness and you helped me through it. I sing your praises everywhere I go. God bless you!
Dear Bruce, My family and I would like to thank you for all that you did for us. Your kindness is greatly appreciated. Gratefully yours, God bless you!
Dear Bruce, Thank you for being there in my hour of need. I appreciate all you have done for me. I know you are always there for me. With love and prayers.
My husband looked so good and Bruce did what I wanted.
The funeral was just so special. I am and my family are very happy with everything. Our Pastor and Bruce McMichael did so much to make it special. I am so thankful for both of them.
Bruce McMichael was very kind and professional.
The service my family received was far above excellent. We were very happy that our Uncle's arrangements had gone exactly as planned. We were all comforted by the kindness of the staff at McMichael Funeral Home. Thank you!
Mr. Bruce McMichael is an excellent funeral director and everyone is happy that he handled everything for us. God bless the McMichael Funeral Home. Everything was handled perfectly.
Mr. Bruce McMichael was professional but warm to deal with. Plan to contact him in the future to pre-arrange my funeral wishes.
Mr. McMichael was amazing. Mr. "Bruce" had known him from around town and respect was obvious. I cannot say how WONDERFUL Mr. Bruce was and is....I would trust no one else! The compassion and respect....
Bruce is a very understanding and helpful in making arrangements in a very difficult time. He worked with us in making payments because we had no life insurance. He is very compassionate.
Bruce and his staff are wonderful from the beginning to the end and even beyond that. When you go through a difficult time losing a love done it is hard but they make it very easy. They talk you through every step of the way. I recommend McMichael Funeral Home to everyone. There is not enough space here to say everything there is to say. They add a special touch to each funeral....that makes the families feel wonderful....the kindness and helpfulness...the special touches specifically to focus on my husband....
Bruce McMichael and staff did a great, great, real great job--we were very pleased!!! He was kind, great to work with....very, very pleased. Thanks....did a great job.
Totally satisfied with the ease of making difficult decisions with Bruce at McMichael's.
I can't believe what a perfectly positive experience I would have in burying a loved one. This facility, rather, these wonderful individuals--Bruce McMichael and staff, exemplified how to handle those grieving with dignity and care--which respect can only be shown through self-respect. This sweet home for funerals supported our family. I thank them for their guidance and follow-through with every detail. We appreciate the sensitive and kind manner with which this director handled our situation with family and arrangements.
Bruce, I would like to thank you for all the things you did. He looked really nice.
We really appreciated everything you have done for us. You are very efficient in your profession. Our family was so grateful for everything. Thanks again.
Thank you so much for your kindness.
There was no doubt in my mind who to call as we were nearing our mother's death. After the good experience at my father-in-law and mother-in-law's funerals at McMichael's, there was no hesitation to call Bruce. He is such a kind and considerate man. We appreciated the kindness and care we received in this sad time in our lives.
Bruce McMichael and his staff were excellent in helping with our mother's arrangements. He was very caring and concerned about all aspects of dealing with everything we were going through. We were very satisfied with everything. Thank you.
Appreciate the kindness shown our family and the professionalism.
Bruce McMichael does an excellent job. He's a great man for the position he has...helping and guiding people during a horrible few days in their lives. I wish him the best success in life.
Throughout the entire process Bruce's approach to his work was more like being a friend than just a businessman going about his job. He made me and my family much at peace with the entire burial.
Thanks for everything you did for our family after my Father's passing. You are a true family friend. Your thoughtfulness is appreciated by our family.
The services were very nice. She looked so beautiful. Bruce also had my Dad in 2013. He also did a good job with him. I will recommend him to everyone I know.
Many thanks for being so nice! And thank you again for the wonderful service and all you have done to help.
Dear Bruce, Thank you for all your thoughtfulness and support. Our friendship is a blessing to all of us. We are grateful for your presence in our lives.
I want to thank you for all your kind words of support and the literature over the past year. I read every single piece and followed many of the suggestions. They were very helpful. Thanks to you, I got through a year of many"firsts" and anniversaries. I can never thank you enough. I have mentioned to everyone I know what a caring, thoughtful, helpful person you are. Thanks again for all your support.
I received numerous comments from family and friends that it was the nicest service they ever were at. I also was very impressed. The whole deal was a very easy and sincere service. Funeral Director was very sincere and made the experience very well organized and meaningful. Best Service ever...everything was above expectations....a compassionate funeral director.
I hope your family knows the gift they got from God in you.
Bruce is very understanding with the family and the business.
Bruce and his mom and dad have been such good friends not only at funerals but all through our lives, in everything we do. A friendly wave or hello just makes our day. God bless them and keep up the loving understanding and sympathy they show everyone. Love them all!
Bruce was not just providing a service--he walked through the whole experience with us. There were no "I wish I had though of's"....there was nothing sterile...it was provided with true humanity!
The McMichael Funeral Home was above and beyond my expectations. He has done funerals for our granddaughter, friends and neighbors. I would recommend the McMichael Funeral Home to anyone who would ask me.
Bruce McMichael was sympathetic, caring and professional. I will recommend him highly.
Bruce McMichael did a "wonderful job". He went above and beyond what was expected of him. Bruce is a perfectionist and a true professional with so much compassion and sympathy for the family. I would highly recommend his services in the future.
Bruce, Once again, I thank you for all of your love and care, your prayers and your gentle way of moving another loved one to her new address with God. God bless.
Thanks so much for your compassion, sweetness and kindness you showed to us. It is a wonderful feeling to know that we leave everything in your hands and it is done so perfectly. In a person's time of need this is such a wonderful blessing. Your entire family is marvelous in showing caring and tenderness. Thank you and God bless you!
Dear Bruce, I just want you to know how much I really appreciate everything you do. Thank you for all the nice and comforting things you have said and done for me...all the material about loss and moving on are helping me a lot. You are a wonderful person. The world needs more like you. I think the world of you and tell everyone how wonderful you are. I thank God for knowing you and as having you as a friend and being in my life. Thank you for everything.
Dear Bruce, Want to thank you for all the things you did during and after Carroll's funeral, all the literature to read which was so helpful and especially the picture, I really love that.
Thank you so much for making my difficult time less of a burden to bear. It means a lot to me. Take care and God bless.
Dear Bruce, Words can't express how much we appreciate everything you've done for us. You have gone above and beyond what would be expected during this time of sorrow and grief. You didn't leave a stone unturned and everything was done to "perfection" just like my Dad would have wanted...he would have been so proud. Please thank you wife for us as we know she had a hand with some of the "special touches". This is such a terrible sad time for us but you have made things easier to deal with by sharing all of your kind thoughts and words of wisdom. It was so nice to meet you and deal with such a true professional. Thank you again for everything that you have done for us and for your friendship.
Bruce is a wonderful person...was very helpful, compassionate and has been in touch since the funeral.
Dear Mr. McMichael, I am writing to thank you for your kindness during a difficult and very sad time for our family. You were a great comfort to my mother and to all of us and I will never forget the warmth and sincerity of you and your funeral home. My deepest thanks to you.
Dear Bruce, Words cannot express how much I appreciate all you have done for me at Gordon's passing. You certainly lightened the load at such an emotional time. You did an excellent job in preparing Gordon and I was very pleased. I thank you so much! Also thank you for the reading material and calendar and for placing the dove on the Christmas tree in memory of Gordon. You have been such a blessing to me this past year.
It was a day we never think will arrive; the death of a parent. The person whom brought you into this world, taught you how to throw a baseball and catch a football, taught you how to bait a hook and aim a rifle, was now at rest and peace with God. Having been over 3000 miles away when I got that dreadful call, I quickly began to organize and plan for a flight out the next morning. I can remember very vividly not sleeping a wink that night and arriving at the airport to get into a confrontation with a security guard about unloading my families bags on the curb so I could park the car. Nothing seemed to matter, because I was on a different kind of mission that I am used to; this one involved seeing that my father got a military service that he much deserved and lying him to rest with his buddies. I remember walking through the airport and feeling encapsulated, as I could neither hear anything around me or focus my vision nor senses. Being that my Dad had served on many military funeral processions, it was his wishes to have McMichael Funeral Home handle the service. From the moment I had met with Bruce McMichael, he had sensed my loss and knew exactly how to handle it. Bruce began to put things in order with absolutely no pressure and very little thought process on my end. He gave us a bunch of literature and checklists which were very helpful for someone whom hasn't dealt with a situation of this nature. Bruce comforted my wife and I and began to bring out the brighter days in my Dad's life. We left his office feeling very confident that my Dad was in good hands. On the day of the service we arrived to an absolutely beautiful funeral home. The service and preparation that Bruce was responsible for was nothing short of class. Having known that my Dad was a Viet-Nam Veteran, he tailored the service to a 'Patriotic Theme" which brought many tears of sadness and joy. He allowed me to post pictures on a board so visitors could view my Dad during his better days. Mr Scott Lyons served as the Pastor for the service and I can say without a doubt that his words were so uplifting and healing to my family and friends. After the service, we proceeded to the burial site in Bloomsburg where Bruce was with me every step of the way. Without regard, Bruce and Scott were able to lift everyone up on a day of sadness and turn it into a day of remembrance. None of us ever look to the day when we lose a loved one. Bruce helped us through the process every step of the way and began to pull me away from the dark day in the airport to a new day of celebrating my Dads' life. Bruce has become a close friend, and while at home for Christmas we met at the funeral home. On the porch was a beautiful fresh cut Pennsylvania Christmas Tree decorated with white doves and remembrance cards of the people whom have passed throughout the year. This is one of the many ways that Bruce lets those know, that the memories whom have passed through the funeral home will never be forgotten within the community.
Dear Bruce and Darla, Thank you so very much for all you did for mother's funeral. You and Darla are very special. I am so grateful for all you have done for my mother and father.
Dear Bruce and Darla: Thank you so much for the lovely card and note. Also for the "How to Get Through the First Weeks and Months After a Death". Good solid information!.... We all thought that everything was well organized and flowed smoothly. The McMichael Funeral Home scored an "EXCELLENT". Thank you so much from all of us for a job well done.....
Dear Mr. McMichael, Our thanks go out to you for your concern for us after the death of our mother. Once again, thank you for thinking of us.
Bruce, We just wanted to say thank you for all that you have done for us with the loss of our dad. It was a wonderful service. It still seems so hard to believe. I am sorry for the lateness of the thank you....Thank you again for everything. You have been so good to us for 10 years, with both Mom and Dad. You are a wonderful man, Bruce.
Bruce, My father chose you himself and he made a wonderful choice for his final arrangements....thank you from the bottom of my heart for everything; I know Dad is in a better place and you helped us both.
Bruce McMichael has no room for improvement. He was caring, compassionate and above all, open to any suggestions and ideas we had of our own....we have never had to plan a funeral. With the help of friends and family who have at one time or another went to Bruce, they convinced us to call him. It was through their experiences with McMichael Funeral Home that they urged us to call. As it turned out, it was the best advice....Bruce worked with our Pastor; made all the arrangements, and stood by our side through this terrible time in our lives. We think how ironic it is to be writing a letter of our wonderful experience when our own lives have been turned upside down. He is no longer "Mr. McMichael". He's "Bruce", a new friend and a very dear friend to this community. I know someday we will be calling on his services again....because of the great person and professional he is.
Bruce was more than gracious and never rushed us...he was also very professional and kind.
Bruce McMichael is very professional, compassionate and personable--he has done a wonderful job for our family over the years.
Fantastic personal service and compassion by Mr. McMichael....always available to answer questions and accommodate our needs.
Bruce, I can't begin to thank you enough for all the help and kindness you gave to me....it has been a very difficult time for me.
Dear Mr. McMichael, Thank you so much for making a very sad and stressful time so easy. You were so nice and you helped us through it. The funeral was very nice and we appreciate everything you did. Thank you!
Dear Bruce, My family and I wanted to thank you for the help and support you gave us....Your real concern and sympathy made our task easier to bear. I believe God has placed you and your family where they're needed. He is the strength we rely on. Thank you again and God bless.
Bruce, Darla and Family, Thanks for all you did during our difficult time....Bruce, Darla, you did a fabulous job from the time you walked in our door until the end. The slide show was super.
Dear Bruce, I am the youngest daughter of Sarah and I just wanted you to know it meant a lot to my mom that you cared enough to send her a card a year later. People just don't do the "little things" any more. Please continue your practices and caring ways.
Dear Bruce, We thank you from the bottom of our hearts.....Thanks again.
Dear Bruce, On behalf of our whole family I want to thank you for making a sad time, easier. Thank you for being available for my questions and changes that occurred in the service. What a blessing to have so many things taken care of. Thank you!
Mr. McMichael showed much sympathy and concern for the family before the services and after. He arranged for a military honor guard for my husband and provided extras to commemorate his service in the Air Force. He took care of some of the paperwork and is still available if I have any questions or problems.
McMichael Funeral Home was great during these unhappy times.Bruce McMichael went far above what the family expected. We will highly recommend their services to others.
Dear Bruce, I want you to know how much I appreciate everything that you and your staff have done to help us through this. You have been wonderful both personally and professionally. Your services were excellent and your friendship priceless. Thank you, Bruce, for everything.
Dear Bruce and Darla, Words can't express our gratitude! You are both so gifted. I hope you know what a blessing you are to all of us!
Bruce McMichael is a friend and a very caring person.
Mr. McMichael was the most caring person I ever met. I would recommend him to anybody who would ask me about him.
Bruce, Your suggestion of having us view our mother was so on target. It really gave us a wonderful image to keep with us. I only regret I had not taken a picture....You couldn't have done a better job with her or with organizing and carrying out all the details of the service. Thanks!
Bruce, Thanks so much for all you did to help us following Dad's passing. Your kind words and helpful ideas were greatly appreciated and made all the difficult decisions a little easier to make.
Dear Bruce, Thank you for all you have done for us during our time of loss. We hope the new year is healthy and happy for you and your family.
Thank you for all your help and sympathy at our time of sorrow. Mom made sure we knew she wanted you do to her services.
Dear Bruce, Staff and Family, Florence's....final day was perfect! Thanks for every detail! We appreciate all your hard work and beautiful memory. God bless.
Thank you for all your help and kindness to the family on this sad occasion....it was greatly appreciated.
Dear Bruce, My family and I would like to thank you for your kindness and professionalism in caring for the arrangements. I would personally like to thank you for allowing me to spend that special time alone. As you can imagine, this has been such a difficult time for us all. And I would like to tell you how much we appreciated you and y our wife, taking the time to make the DVD.....thank you for taking such good care of him.
While Mr. McMichael did not try to influence us to have an open casket, he suggested the family have a viewing of the deceased before the public viewing. He felt it would be a better image to remember her by. Once we saw her, we had to share her with her friends and others in the family. For this, we are all grateful. We changed from a closed casket to an open viewing because of the great job with the deceased's appearance.
It's hard to express how much it meant to our family to have someone like Mr. McMichael to lean on during our time of grief. Extremely professional and willing to help in whatever way he could.
Dear Mr. McMichael, Thank you for your compassion and excellent services you extended to our family....thanks again for everything. May God bless you and your family.
Dear Bruce and Family, Thank you so much to you and your family for the beautiful service for mom. We truly appreciate everything.
Bruce, Thanks for everything that you did for the family. It is greatly appreciated.
Dear Bruce, I am so thankful for all you've done and for all of your help. A sincere, heartfelt thank you!
Dear Bruce, I thank you from the bottom of my heart for the most sincere and caring funeral you did for my mom. It was done just right in every way. You are to be commended. Please thank your dad and mom for their kindness and care and the music was mom's favorite. Sometime when I come up again I want to thank you in person. May God bless you and your family.
Dear Bruce, You have been so kind and generous with both of my parents funerals. I will never be able to thank you enough, you're a wonderful friend....please give my regards to your family.
Dear Bruce, My family and I want to thank you for all the help you gave us through this difficult time. Everything went so well. You have a beautiful funeral home and we felt such comfort being there.
Dear Bruce, I just want to thank you for thinking of me. Thank you also for the pamphlets you are sending. I read every word. The booklet, "Healing Grief" was especially helpful. Words I can relate to.....we are so glad we got to know you, also. You certainly are a special person. Thank you again for being there for us. We totally appreciate it and we will definitely keep in touch.
Dear Bruce, Thank you for all you did for us. The service went very well with no problems. You handled all situations with ease. Again, thank you.
Bruce McMichael, Words cannot describe the gratitude that we feel for all that you have done. You helped make this time of sorrow easier to get through. Thank you.
Thank you for helping us through this difficult time. Once again, thank you.
Dear Bruce, We can never thank you enough for all of your kindnesses to me and to us as a family. Thank you again, ever so much.
I can't say enough about Bruce McMichael. He made the funeral wonderful. Everything was great. My husband was so ill and Bruce made him look like he was asleep. I tell everyone I know not to go anywhere else.
Dear Bruce, We want to thank you for your many kindnesses to our family. Thank you for your patience with the multitude of phone calls and e-mails you received from us. I know, I know, I can hear you thinking it...."that's my job!" Other funeral directors go through the motions for a family; you go through the experience with the family! Thank you for being more than just a funeral director. Thank you for being a compassionate friend and an encouraging brother in Christ. We appreciate you, and all you've done for us over the years. Thank you, Bruce!
Dear Bruce, On behalf of my family, we wish to thank you and your family for the compassion, the caring and the attention to details before, during and after Dad's funeral. Between emails and cell phone calls, you made the process go very smoothly. I truly couldn't have asked for anyone better. Thank you again for all the personal touches. In closing, thank you for the letters of support, and the letters with information that keep me updated. I cannot thank you enough for everything.
Bruce and Family, Thank you again for your sincere kindness, helpfulness and comfort. The services were truly special. Please tell your mother and wife I appreciated all they did for me. I'm very grateful. God bless you now and forever.
Dear Bruce and Darla, Thank you for your support and generosity. We so appreciate everything you do for us.
Everything was excellent by the McMichael Funeral Home.E
Bruce McMichael was an angel on earth when I needed the assistance of my life. He went far beyond what I expected with his kindness, thoughtfulness and expertise. He continues to offer his help long after my husband's passing. My family is well pleased.
Mr. McMichael has been a family friend for a long time. The service we received was wonderful. Everyone was so kind and took such great care with my mother's service. We could not say enough good things about the service we received.

It's a pleasure to know you and work with you.
I would like to express my feelings--The McMichael Funeral Home, Inc.--Mr. McMichael made our tough time a little easier by his professional handling and true concern for our family. Our choice, by far, was the best choice. He truly honored our son.

Dear Bruce, I want to thank you for your compassion and assistance in planning mother's funeral. You made it so easy for us. The fact that you knew mother and shared some memories of her made the planning so personal. Additionally, thanks for the kind and thoughtful letters and notes.
Dear Bruce and Darla: Thanks for all you have done for the family. You just have the wonderful knack of helping families cope with their time of grieving. You are so warm and compassionate in our time of need. Our mother thought the world of you and knew how very special you are. We just cannot express enough gratitude to you. You both will hold a very special place in our hearts.
Dear Mr. McMichaels, Thank you so much for your kind and professional attention to our family at the home going of mom. Although the time was difficult, you ministry was of great importance and help. We are so thankful that mom and dad are with the Lord!
Bruce McMichael is a very special funeral director. He is warm and compassionate at this difficult time. He certainly helped our family in their time of sorrow.
Bruce McMichael is one of the kindest men I've ever met. He is very compassionate and has great empathy for the family of the deceased. His knowledgeable assistance in arranging details for our family was most appreciated. His visit and concern after the service were greatly appreciated.
Dear Bruce and Darla, Thank you so very much for all you did for Mother's funeral. You and Darla are so special. I am so grateful for all you have done for my mother and father. And thank you for being such a wonderful friend to my sister.
Dear Bruce, Sorry it has taken me so long to write to you to tell you how grateful I am for all you did for me and the family. You are one of the kindest, most compassionate men I've ever met. You have taken care of details that we were in too much shock to comprehend, made things so much easier for us....you surely are to be commended for your excellent workmanship. I am sure it took extra hours on your part, and thank you can never convey my deep gratitude. The service was simple but exactly what he would have wanted. You were so cordial and kind to all the family, everyone walked away talking about your professionalism and the elegance of your home. The reading materials were helpful; thank you for those, also.
McMichael Funeral Home did a wonderful job. Very helpful and very caring.
He is very professional and very good at his job.
The whole experience had many memorable things but most memorable is how well we were treated by Bruce McMichael.
Bruce had handled services for my sister-in-law and mother back in 1987. When we realized Dad was not going to "make it"--we immediately contacted Bruce--it was the easiest decision we had to make and the decision was unanimous with my four brothers and one sister--something we all agreed on. Bruce's facilities are clean, modern and comfortable--my whole family was very pleased. When Dad passed, it was a comfort to all of us knowing Bruce would be taking care of our Dad. Bruce was with us every step of the way...we consider him to be a trusted friend, practically a member of our family.
Bruce and fellow workers, Thank you so much for the loving care you gave to all of us. We really it appreciate it very much. Thanks again.
Bruce, Thank you for all your help. It was an easy decision for us to choose you. You are a true friend to our family.
Dear Bruce, Thank you for all you did for us, we truly are forever grateful. God bless you.
Bruce McMichael and Staff were excellent under some of the worst conditions of my life. Bruce and his staff were very kind, understanding and loving. They made the best of a bad, sad situation. I thank them very much.
Dear Bruce and All, Thank you so very much for your kindness and caring. Everything was deeply appreciated. Thanks also for your folks for their support. I'll keep in touch.
Dear Bruce, Thank you for making this process easy on all of us. We cannot thank you enough. Thank you for your attention to detail and your personable and supportive assistance. The service was beautiful and we could not have imagined it going more smoothly. Thank you for being so considerate and understanding.
Bruce, Thank you for all you have done for our family. We all know that he was very pleased on how everything was handled. You are such a caring and giving person. We will never be able to say thank you enough times!
All arrangements were excellent down to the finest detail. The help with the Veterans details was most helpful.
Bruce, Thank you for helping me through the most difficult time in my life. It takes a special type of person to do the job that you do and you're the best at it. May God bless you.
Dear Bruce, Thank you so very much for all you have done. Tell your Folks hello and take care. Best of thanks.
Dear Bruce, Thank you for all you have done to help us through the loss of our Dad. Your ability to combine professionalism with a personal touch through the process was most appreciated.
Bruce, Thanks for all your help. You made a very difficult time easier. I and the family thank you.
The entire service provided couldn't have been better. The follow-up care and concern for us means so much.
Bruce McMichael is just outstanding! As the POA for my aunts, who had their funeral arrangements made with Bruce, it was such a relief. He took care of everything and offered his help, condolences, etc. not only at the funeral but weeks and months later. You couldn't ask for anything more because he goes above and beyond what he would have to do. A cousin who had a death in her family recently was very impressed with the way Bruce handled everything.
On a day I knew would happen but hoped it wouldn't, McMichaels Funeral Home helped me and my family beyond words. I am very glad I chose them and am thankful or all they did.
Mr. McMichael was professional, caring and compassionate.
We would like to thank you and your family for everything that you have done for our family. She looked beautiful and the slide show was amazing. The service was perfect-you made that happen. Thank you again.
Dear Bruce, Just a note to thank you for your kindness to me and my family and friends. And please thank your mother for the music. It was perfect.
Dear Bruce, Thank you so much for everything you did to make it special for our grandmother. We appreciate all of your hugs, kind words and smiles. Bruce, you are very special to our family and always will be. I wish you the best in the world! Thank you again, you are a blessing.
Mr. McMichael, Thank you for taking such good care of us. You are truly a caring person. There are many words that can express how I feel, the easiest is: Thank you. You have a hard job and do it amazingly. Thank you.
Dear Bruce, I knew the first time I looked up and saw the kindness in your face, mom was in good hands. You made it so easy for us to make decisions because you listened to us instead of telling us what we should do; that is just one of the reasons you are in the funeral service. When we came over on Saturday morning, I didn't know what to expect. your sister did such a good job with her hair and her makeup; both Tom and I stood there and smiled and said she looked 10 years younger. She looked so peaceful. The pink nail polish was the perfect finishing touch. Tell your sister 'thank you'. Your staff was so caring and thoughtful. Everyone was professional but not cold. You all made a difficult day a warm and wonderful experience. May God bless you in your work.
We have had to plan and carry out the plans for many funerals but never have had such a wonderful experience as we did with Bruce. He was caring, warm and extremely professional. There wasn't anything more he could have done for our family. Whenever anything came up he handled everything perfectly. The day of the funeral if we needed him he was right there. We must say he is the kindest man in the profession that we have ever met. Our pastor met him for the first time and so enjoyed the opportunity to work with Bruce. Bruce was so comfortable to have as our funeral director that we never hesitated to ask for his help. There was no stumbling through anything, he was there with answers and support.
Bruce, We would like to thank you so much for your help. Don't know what I would have done without you or your staff. It will be a long time to fill the emptiness without Mom, but we just think of the good memories from over the years. Thank you again.
Bruce McMichael went above and beyond his duties to make this as easy and painless as possible. He was and still is a great help in every way possible. I very much appreciated his patience and understanding during this terrible time in my life.
Bruce is the BEST--we all love him--he's like a family member.
Bruce went above and beyond our expectations.
Mr. McMichael provides a professional yet heartfelt understanding during such a difficult time. In my opinion, I would not consider going anywhere else. I can't thank him enough.
Bruce, On behalf of my family and myself, I would like to thank you for your heartfelt sympathy and love. You are such a warm and loving person and I know I would not have gone through this time of my life if it weren't for you.
My 'thank you' seems so small compared to everything you did for our family and Dad. I hope and pray your kindness comes back to you ten-fold.
Bruce, Darla and Family, Thank you so much for all the help in making the arrangements. We could not have done it without you. You are such a special family--we are blessed for your friendship.
Bruce and Darla, Thank you so much for everything you did for us that made it so much easier during our challenging time of loss and adjustment. We can't believe all that you did. You guys are so special to us….you are such a blessing and encouragement to us. God bless you richly! We love you".
Bruce showed us sympathy and compassion making it much easier for us.
My whole family has used McMichael's services for many years. You could not ask for a more sympathetic and competent guiding hand. All funeral directors could take a lesson from Mr. McMichael. He's a Godly man and it comes through in the way he relates to others. Mr. McMichael was extremely patient and caring. He did exactly what the family wanted.
God makes some people very special and you are one of those people. You don't have an easy job, but you are very thoughtful and considerate of the families that you have contact with. It wasn’t easy letting her go but knowing that she was going to your Christian hands made it better. Thank you so very much for all you did.
Bruce, thank you for all you have done for the family. This was a difficult time and you made it so easy and comfortable for us to make decisions. You are a great person.
Bruce and Darla, Thank you for all you have done.
Dear Bruce, Many thanks for your kindness and consideration both before and after the service.
Dear Bruce, For so sudden a loss, you brought into focus the needs of my mom with swift handling of her repose. From my heart, I will always remember this as a pleasant experience. Thank you.
We picked up the dove and took pictures of the tree. We thank you for the nice memory. Have a great year!
Bruce, I wanted to say thank you for your kindness that you shown when we were going through one of the most difficult times in our lives. It surely takes a special person to do what you do. Thank you so much.
Bruce McMichael is the best director we have ever seen. He is kind, friendly, professional and people oriented. He is simply "The Best".
Dear Bruce, I wanted to take a moment to say thanks for all your kindness and professional services for my brother's services. What a whirlwind at the holidays. Everything was perfect as it could be--thanks again.
Dear Bruce and Family, My sincere "thank you" for your kind letters and messages of support during this past year. Your caring and concern has been a huge part of my family and my, healing process.
Thank you for making such a difficult process bearable. I am very thankful for all your support and empathy. I do so, so appreciate your making the arrangement with the pastor and having your mother provide such beautiful music. I can't thank you enough for everything you did. The post-funeral letter and pamphlet helped me get through another rough week-end. It was very helpful.
I believe Mr. Bruce McMichael went above and beyond service expected from a funeral director. He was most courteous and understanding and worked well with my children and honoring their requests for the viewing and all that was involved. Mr. McMichael was a gentleman and very helpful through this entire matter.
Bruce is very earnest and caring; listening to your concerns.
My family was very satisfied with the funeral service and how nice my family was treated during the whole service.
We have known Mr. McMichael for many years. We wouldn't have anyone else.
Mr. McMichael placed a picture of my husband with a dove on it on an outside Christmas tree. We were allowed to remove it after the holidays. It is our treasure.
The most memorable thing about our experience was the compassion of Bruce McMichael. He truly cares and it shows.
I want to say that Bruce McMichael is a true gentleman who is caring, professional, friendly; he did not rush me and let me choose music; do the eulogy. He answered all of my questions promptly and honestly-for such a sad chosen profession he made me feel joy, peace, comfort in the loss of my brother. Bruce is a wonderful human being!
Mr. McMichael was very professional and at the same time very caring and personal. The care he took with our father was exceptional and it meant a lot to my brothers and I.
Bruce and Staff, Thank you so much for your help, all d one with the most compassion. You made trying days more comfortable. Thank you.
Bruce was caring, professional, personable and made contacts and all arrangements as needed to be done at that difficult time. Because of Covid protocols we were only able to have immediate family viewing and graveside services. Well done.
Thank you for everything you have done for us, we are so grateful!
Dear Bruce , I want to thank you for your thoughtfulness and all you've given of yourself and your time. I also appreciated the newsletters--they were very helpful during these past weeks.
Bruce, Just wanted to take a moment to let you know how much appreciated everything you did for us while we were dealing with the lose of our parents. You were always very patient and kind to us. I am sure you went out of your way to accommodate us with both of their services even when you said it was no problem. With your help it was a little easier to get through our losses. Thank you so very much.
