"This email is regarding your office administrator Jamie Vallejera. I was besides myself this morning as the funeral flowers I sent never showed up. The florist I used Ava's flowers kept telling me they had been delivered. I decided to call your home directly and it was my good fortune to speak with Jamie. She checked, said they weren't there but took my number to call me back if they showed up. They were suppose to be there by 8 a.m. when the short 2 hour service started. Well the florist was horrible and said they had been there since 8 a.m, needless to say a lie. However Jamie called me up here in Chicago at 9:30 a.m. And said they arrived and sent me a photo of them. She is truly a professional and perfect in her job. An employee to be proud of and I'm grateful for her handling this situation in a truly caring matter. Without her I would have been besides myself. As a business owner up here for 32 years, I realize the importance of having employees truly good at what they do, as they are a representation of not only our business but of ourselves personally as it's our name on the company.
Jamie is someone to cherish and perfectly suited for her job. I'm very grateful for her help and felt you should know about my experience."

"Loyless funeral home was so great to work with. Bud and Laura were amazing. Dealing with the loss of a loved one is hard enough, especially when unexpected, there’s a lot to do and everything happens so fast. It was important to us that everything was done perfect. They took the time and asked the right questions to be sure we had the best services we could for my mother. I highly recommend them to anyone. They didn’t make us feel like just another client, they were sincere and set the right expectations every step of the way. Laura sat down with us to hear about memories of my mom and understand what we wanted to celebrate her life. She included everyone dear to my mom in her service and did a lot to truly make it special. It felt like she knew my mom personally and did everything exactly as she would have wanted. She even let me put a rose in my mom’s hand which she took a pedal from, and pressed it for me. Something I will cherish forever. They did so much! I’m so thankful we found them and highly recommend."

"The only thing that made the passing of our father bearable was the experience we had using your funeral home. We didn’t chose you because you were close to home. We chose you because of your reputation & 1st hand experience we had attending other funerals both here & elsewhere. It has been 8 years next month since we lost Dad. We still talk about how your funeral home made a celebration of Dad’s life & not just a mourning of his passing. The video at his wake/service flashed his life in photos before our eyes & we found ourselves actually smiling at an otherwise tearful time. You didn’t miss any attention to detail & every “i” was dotted & “t” crossed. We didn’t have to worry or even think about anything, as you handled everything. One thing that really touched our hearts & made an impact was that you provided copies of his death certificate to our mother who wasn’t in the frame of mind to think or make decisions. She was able to file for his life insurance easily without hassle thanks to your thoroughness & thoughtfulness. We hang his angel ornament on the Christmas tree & are grateful that you have a memorial (for those who passed) around Christmas time gifting the family with an ornament with their loved ones name on it. It is very special. Thinking back to the day of his funeral, I remember how smoothly everything was. I don’t remember having to do anything. You even gave all of his children, grandchildren, his widow, & even his living siblings, roses to lay on his coffin as a final goodbye. Somehow the rose just appeared in my hand as I was distraught & sobbing. Looking back I cherish the memory of the roses. We all do. Our family can’t thank you enough for everything you’ve done for us & the level of respect shown to our father. We highly recommend Loyless to everyone."

"We cannot express our thanks and gratitude for the way everyone at Loyless interacted with us when our mother passed away at 103. When we say everyone, we mean everyone, starting with the gentlemen who took her from our home. They treated her with care and dignity. Ellen and Laura, who handled the administrative details did so in a sensitive manner that gave us a feeling of comfort. John Loyless went out of his way to insure us that they would care for our mother in a way that was reassuring to us. When someone lives as long as our mother did, you think you are prepared for the eventful day, but you never truly are. Everyone at Loyless understood our needs and made everything easier. We are so grateful."

"My father became ill with Cancer at the young age of 69. Once he was diagnosed he was with us for a little over a month. He left the hospital and went home in Hospice care. Everything happened as a shock and so quickly that we never got to discuss plans with my dad. I received a call from the Hospice nurse that my dad was declining on a Tuesday. We knew it was a matter of hours or at most a day or two. I started calling around as I only knew one of my father's wishes and that was to be cremated. I called around to funeral homes during business hours just wanting someone to answer me as who can take my father into their care as I knew it was going to happen very soon. All of the "big guys" or corporate business funeral industry could not answer me and everyone was too busy for my needs. They all had to call me back that next day or in a few days. At this time of sadness and knowing the time was hours away, only one funeral home could provide me with an answer, and it was the family business of Loyless Funeral home. They were compassionate and explained I could call them at anytime if my daddy died during the night at home and they would take him into their care. My daddy died the next morning at home and Loyless picked him up as soon as we were ready. The two gentleman that picked him up were amazing, they even cut some of my dads hair for me. Then, we went to the planning center on Bruce B Downs where we met Mr. Loyless and Ellen. Mr. Loyless was amazing with his advise on checking out military cemeteries and private to see what is best for the family and my father's wishes. There was not a high pressure approach and I never felt like it was about money. In fact, Mr. Loyless never rushed us even though he had to go to a doctors appointment after meeting with us. Ellen in his office is amazing with the obituary and helping us every step of the way. Yesterday, I picked up my daddy's urn and Ellen walked me to the car with the urn and added a special touch to even seat belt my daddy in incase I would have to slam on brakes. I cannot say enough about every employee we met at Loyless Funeral Home."
