From my first call to Serenity Funeral Home to inquire about arrangements for my husband, Elder Casey Darnell Hayes, Sr.'s unexpected passing, I knew everything would be alright. The funeral director and staff were extremely kind and compassionate. The facility is beautifully decorated with a calming atmosphere. I was genuinely impressed with everything, especially their kindness and attention to detail helped me from the first family viewing, obituary cover and design, head panel, and the Serenity tribute (the song choice was exceptional and fitting to my husband's character), video presentation, balloon release, and limousine rides. In addition to this, the funeral director and staff did an excellent job organizing all the funeral arrangements. I also want to thank them for the thoughtful and meaningful words at the burial site. Indeed, their care, professionalism, and personable jobs were amazing. I would never be able to thank them enough for taking me from a bewildered state to one of peace and comfort that I have now. I will be forever grateful for their service.

I can not say enough about the great service that we received at Serenity Funeral Home! They made this transition easy and pain free. Ryan Strickland was awesome! He made it feel like a family affair. He turned our tears of sorrow into tears of joy and laughter remembering our loved one, Gerald Hicks! I still smile thinking about his kindness. I can't imagine getting through this process without Ryan. I would recommend Serenity Funeral Home to anyone who is need of this service because we all must go this way one day.

My mother’s services were beautifully handled. Everything was extremely professional and so easy. Ryan and Michelle really outdid themselves and whatever request I had, they did. Mama’s request was to go through Serenity and I would not have had it any other way.

I Have had family service there before and I Think some of your funeral Directors need to have more compassion &patience whit family when they have lost a Love One.

Words cannot begin to express our gratitude for the way Serenity handled or dad's Homegoing Celebration. It was above and beyond what we expected. When a relative couldn't make it, they were able to live stream it for us, and our uncle was able to view with no problems. Thank you Thank you Thank you

I wanted to take this time to thank you Serenity for your kindness and caring from my very first call nothing but professional services from beginning to the end you made my sister look like an angel, she was beautiful you did just what we wanted and the beautician did her hair and makeup just the way she wore it she looked 20 years younger. Thank you for putting your special touches on my baby sister. You did the same for my oldest sister 8 months earlier and the programs was also well done with a special touch of your own thank you It will be an honor recommending others to Serenity.

The staff at Serenity Funeral Home was nothing less than professional when my husband passed away. From the time I had to call them at 1 a.m. all the way through the day of the burial they were always accommodating to my needs and those of my family. We truly appreciate Mike, Robin, Marquan, Ryan and all those that assisted us during this difficult time and would highly refer anyone that asked about them. THANK YOU ALL AND GOD BLESS.

It is coming up on 3 years since my son and my sister-in-love passed away, if it were not for Serenity I do not think I would have been able to handle loosing two people so close to me within 12 days of each other. My son passed away in New York and Mike handled everything from start to finish. He brought my son home and we were able to give him a beautiful service. With our back to back services, Mike and his staff were compassionate and understanding, I would not trust my family with any other funeral home but Serenity. Thank you Mike and the staff at Serenity!

In a twinkling of an eye my sister and I were faced with the daunting task of planning the final farewell of our mom Kathlean Love. The voice of mom lingering in our minds "put me away nicely" coupled with opinions of others my sister and I reached out to Mike Atkins at Serenity Funeral Home.
Somewhere early in the meeting Mr. Atkins wisdom had to of picked up on the mental fatigue and anticipation of the unknown of the in/out of funeral service/burial options and tactfully moved the meeting along without all the pre probing questions. I'd anticipated he ask HOW MUCH OF AN INSURANCE POLICY, OR CASH ON HAND before quoting service amounts. He did the TOTAL OPPOSITE.... He laid before us what SERENITY FUNERAL HOME offer as package deals, cremations, grave side service and al carte if needed. It was at this time we presented the policy and he and his team handled the rest. Once he knew the amount he didn't go back and attempt to oversell.
Although impressed at this time, It kept getting better every step of the way. The services rendered from start to finish was nothing short of THE BEST.... Thanks to the entire Serenity Family!!!!

Our family has always used the same two funeral homes for all of our burials needs in the past. I had never even heard of Serenity Memorial Chapel until a relative put me in contact with the owner. Mike was professional from the very beginning.The staff at Serenity starting with the Funeral Director and everyone else went above and beyond in making sure this difficult time was the best experience for my family. Mike delivered on everything that was expected and went above beyond those expectations. Although I hope I do not have to use his services anytime soon, I definitely recommend Serenity Memorial Chapel. Thank you Serenity. The Ward Family

Serenity Memorial Chapel offers A-1 Service. I would rate them the Best in the Business. Not only is the staff professional, but they show empathy in your time of bereavement. I would personally recommend them. My experience was wonderful with this company. They take the stress away, so you can deal with your loved ones. Keep up the GREAT WORK Serenity!!

Lynette Powell

Never thought in a million years that I would have to be responsible for making sure my father's burial would be perfect. After a long illness and over 20 years of paying for life insurance, I just knew this process would be simple. After finding out that the insurance policy that had been paid for for several year, with the most recent payment being paid only five days prior to his death, to find out the policy was No good and was worthless at this emotional time in our life, we contacted Serenity Memorial who ensured us that they could work with us to ensure that my father's burial would be nothing less than memorable. They were sensitive and understanding to our needs and our situation. Despite our financial mishap, we were treated like a million bucks from start to finish. THANKS SERENITY MEMORIAL CHAPEL.

One week before Thanksgiving my sister in law gave birth to my niece who was stillborn. I called Serenity and the owner was so caring and sensitive to our needs during our time of bereavement, he had even worked around my work schedule. The day before Thanksgiving my family was able to view her, she was such a beauty. The cremation was done and she was shipped to my mother in California. Our expectations were exceeded and then some. Thank you Serenity Memorial Chapel my family and I are forever grateful.
