Gilbert Funeral Home did a most amazing, professional job for our son's funeral, service. Our son passed away in Huntington Beach, CA. We wanted to bring him back to our family burial area at Maple Hill in Sesser. They did an amazing job of coordinating the transfer from California back to our home town area.... We did not have to worry, be concerned about anything.... they outlined each step, everything followed the plan. Our parents were also taken care of by Gilbert Funeral Home. They did an exceptional service, job. We want to thank you for all your kindness, considerate planning, coordination of this sudden loss of our son. We know that when we pass, everything will be handled the same. We again thank you, Gilbert Funeral Home for all you did. Christopher should be honored, and feel so fortunate to have you in their community. Dr. Timothy and Janet O'Brien.

I should have wrote this over 2 years ago. I can not begin to THANK Steve and everyone at Gilbert's Funeral Home for everything they did when our brother Mike Furlow was killed in Atlanta. Steve went way above duty for our family. He kept us posted on everything that was going on with bringing Mike home. He was very supportive during our time of need. When Mom passed away, Randy and Steve both made us feel comfortable with everything going on. They have always been wonderful and supportive. We couldn't have asked for better care than what we received. Thank you all for everything you have done and continue to do. You guys are a special group of people.
