Brian was wonderful. He was so compassionate, caring, knowledgeable, and helpful with insurance as well as the VA. We felt no pressure. I can't think of anything more you could have done to help us.

My family and I would like to express how wonderful the team of Melcher-Sowers was to our family with the loss of my sister and my mother and father's daughter. We felt very comfortable talking with Brian, he made this painful event a much easier task and made us all feel as if we were a part of their family. Their team paid close attention to details that we wanted and saw that everything d went smoothly. I highly recommend them to anyone in their time of loss. They genuinely care for your and your family.

Brian, We realize our families grief is not exclusive. But you certainly made us feel as if it was. Your compassion and care for Mom and guidance throughout the planning process was, we felt, above and beyond and most of all genuine. Thank you to you and the entire staff for your patience, your time and your help.

Most meaningful to us is that Jerry, Howard's Uncle, was able to be the family that we needed to get through. Jerry made the transition we had to go through as smooth as possible. Thank you for being there and all of your prayers Jerry. Charlene the video was wonderful and the cookies!

Susan & Howard Sowers

I nor my family would ever consider using anyone but you during such a difficult time in ones life. I have often said that if you looked up the word Humanitarian in the dictionary, you would find a photo of Jerry Sowers. I will never forget the dignity you and Brian showed that night my grandmother's body had to be removed from our home, And, Jerry and Pam helped us through one of the most unthinkable times for my family when you took care of everything including the funeral expenses when my brother lost his first child and my parents first grandchild. I have also heard of similar stories from others about your level of care and kindness. Thank you so much for all you do.

Debbie Thompson

Mr. Brian Sowers was helpful and sensitive to every detail. He was a very calming presence. The preparation and appearance of my loved one was very well done. She looked just like herself. We were very well pleased with all of your services.

Karl H. Weingart

Brian was very understanding and took the time to actually sit down with our family and explain cost and available services. We appreciate the understanding of the families financial situation. Brian worked with us to give Bobby a nice service. The service provided by Melcher-Sowers Funeral Home was beyond our expectations.

Brian & Amy Tamplin

Jerry was wonderful. He made everything as stress free as possible for us.He was on top of everything. Melcher-Sowers made my mother's funeral beautiful and surprised me with a wonderful gift.

Angela King

Consistently kind, friendly, efficient, reassuring, accessible, everything you could want with end-of-life planning for yourself or a loved one, either in advance or unexpectedly. I'm trusting them with my last decisions and I trust them with my last decisions. It feels good.

Randi Simon-Serey

They are 10 out of 5. They are very caring and very detailed in every way. Sincere and caring family. They make you feel like you are part of their family and treat your loved one the same. This is their calling, not a business to profit from. My brother was cared for in every way and so was my whole family. I personally felt very comforted and so much that I had to take care of for other funerals of loved ones, was taken care of by them. Spiritually taken care of through the process. I wish everyone going through this difficult time of losing a loved one could be cared for in the way we were by this family. Take my word for it. I didn't know there were people likes this family who could take you through this process and ACTUALLY CARE ABOUT YOU AND YOUR LOVED ONE. If I could have them come to my state to take care of me when the time comes, I would. They are truly a blessing. God bless them always.

Ruthanna Hamilton

No doubt about it! We have unfortunately had to bury way too many in a short amount of time. These folks made us feel at home every single time. Highly recommend!

John Emrick

Very friendly staff! The owners are fantastic people who are very caring and pay close attention to detail which is very important in this business! At the unfortunate event of a death in my family there is no one else we would call!
