“Planning a wake and funeral service for a parent is never easy, whether it is expected or unexpected. I want to express my sincere thank you to C.R. Lyons & Sons Funeral Home for making everything easy and perfect for my family to honor my mother. Amanda & C.R. were available right from start with my first phone call and then throughout the days leading up to the service and then even after, once I had a few more questions. They took the time to help us with our arrangements, even with the little personal requests, they were able to accommodate us and help us with decisions as well. The level of service and professionalism was top notch! We cannot thank the staff enough for making it all go so smooth and for their help during such a difficult time. Thank you!”

“The Lyons family treated us with great care and compassion from the moment we notified them of dad's passing. CR, Amanda and their amazing staff were able to accommodate all of our special requests, while taking care of the many details we would have forgotten about during the visitation and funeral service. They warmly welcomed us into their beautiful and comfortable home, holding our hands the entire way. We are forever thankful.”

“In the days after the death of our family member, we (like most families) were emotional, overwhelmed, and stressed about all that needed to be taken care of. Starting from the moment we called them from the Kaplan Hospice House, CR and Amanda took care of every last detail so that we could focus on taking care of ourselves and honoring the life of my father-in-law. The funeral home itself is stunning. The Deacon they recommended (from St. Mary's Church) was incredible - he took the time to speak to several family members during the days before the service so that he could speak personally about my father-in-law. The graveside ceremony was just what we wanted. There are so many choices to make, CR guided us through each one and made sure everything was exactly how we planned it. Several people commented about how nice the wake and burial services were. CR Lyons and Sons Funeral Home came highly recommended and I'm so grateful we chose them.”

“I have been to many funeral services at C.R Lyons and Sons that when my dad passed away in May, we didn’t think twice about having C.R take care of our arrangements. CR and Amanda went above and beyond for our family. They made our visitors feel safe during this time of grief and a pandemic. They are always extremely professional, trustworthy, and sympathetic. They honored some last minute decisions or changes. My family and I highly recommend them and appreciate everything they did for us and do regularly for families in our community. Thank you”
