“We lost our Dad in September, it was sudden and unexpected. We knew he was an organ donor, And I had asked to be cremated, and that’s about all we had to go on. He didn’t have any prior funeral arrangements or life insurance so the process of dealing with all the things that are necessary after the death of a loved one, On top of the shock and grief, this presented a pretty overwhelming list if things to cover. While We were at the hospital and we were asked who we wanted to release his body to, My sister and I just looked at each other and at the same time said Byrum funeral home. We grew up in Lancaster and had been to countless funerals and memorial services there and we may not have known it at the time, but that choice made our lives so much less hectic in the coming days. Jeff was at the hospital within 30 minutes to talk over some basic details with us... he held our hands every step of the way, while we broke down and cried every step of the way too. He made very logical suggestions, that the grieving may not be thinking of at the time. They professionally arranged the obituary for us after we had all the details together. When our father’s ashes arrived Jeff filled up our Urn necklaces for us, since we weren’t quite steady enough to handle that yet. Then also split our fathers ashes into 2 separate containers for my sister and I. Not once in our entire experience did we feel pushed into anything we didn’t want. We were able to do what we believed would make our Father proud and honor his memory. Jeff kept us abreast of all the goings on before, during and after the service. Very quick to respond the emails and phone calls and honestly felt as if we were the only people they were taking care of at the time. With that said, I’m so thankful for their compassion and understanding and I would not hesitate to give my recommendation to Byrum Funeral Home to care for your loved ones and honor their memories and wishes to their fullest extent. ”
