What Families Are Saying

Almost every day, we receive thank you notes and cards from the families we’ve served. Each of these heartfelt messages means more to us than we can express here, because it affirms the fact that we are doing what we set out to do when we opened the doors of Freeman Mortuary: help families celebrate, honor, and memorialize a loved one with compassionate attentive care, and thorough professionalism. Take some time to read their words – and learn that, every day, we exceed expectations.

We want to thank Ryan Freeman and his staff for the wonderful experience our family had using Freeman Mortuary this November.  Ryan was fantastic. His sensitive attention to detail allowed our family to attend to both our needs and the requests of the deceased. Ryan's willingness to make our experience both seamless and comfortable was so appreciated. We heartily recommend Freeman  Mortuary as a premier funeral home.   Thank you very much

David and Pam Berry (Niece of Opal Gwinn)

 

On behalf of the family of Jeremy Henry, we would like to extend a personal, hearty thank you to Ryan and all the amazing staff at Freeman Mortuary.  Thank you for your support, your guidance, your sympathy and your professionalism during this difficult time.  You made this most difficult time easier, and we are most thankful for this.  We will mourn the loss of our son and brother for our lifetime, but will gain strength and courage, and keep his memory alive.  Your kindness and concern for our family means a great deal to us.  We appreciate the generous support extended to us by the wonderful people at Freeman Mortuary.  Without a doubt, we made the perfect choice in selecting a funeral home to care for our beloved son.  Again, thank you, and may God bless each and every one of you.

It was 2 A.M. when the doorbell rang.  Ryan Freeman had arrived at our Columbia home to take charge of my mother, who had expired 2 hours previously. Despite the early arrival, Ryan was fully dressed in a quiet suit, and when he entered, a sense of calm efficiency entered with him.  Everything was handled with great care and concern for the family, and respect for my mother.

That sense of decorum and efficiency remained throughout the coming days, so filled with arrangements.  The entire staff at Freeman's proved to be thoughtful and accommodating.  No detail was omitted nor overlooked. No request was too frivolous.  We were made to feel very welcome and the communications were excellent.  We also received information that would help us with all the formalities in the coming weeks. Everyone at Freeman's was affable, respectful, and extremely kind, and this made a difficult experience so much easier.  Thank you, Ryan and staff, for your wonderful, thoughtful service.  We won't forget it.

Our first encounter with Ryan Freeman was at 4:00am when he and his crew came to take our loved one to prepare her for the funeral and burial. Ryan was so kind, expressing condolences and providing us guidance on what would be happening next. At the funeral home, Phil Freeman guided us through the initial planning, but it was Ryan and Becca Richards who worked with us on the details and provided us with very useful suggestions. Both were extremely gracious and responsive to our requests, often refining our ideas for a better service. Our loved one was beautifully presented, with the flowers and memorial tables arranged so that the visitation provided a loving remembrance. At the funeral Mass, Becca directed our movements from the back of the church so that everyone knew what to do and when. A few days after the services, Becca even stopped by our house with a belated memorial donation that they had received. Thank you Phil, Ryan and Becca for helping us present loving services for our Mom.

I was asked to play for a funeral at Freeman's. I had never been there before and I had to set up my keyboard. I had the best helping hands to get me set up. They pitched in as soon as I drove up. Arrangements were made with Becca to be ready and ready she was. Thank you to all who helped me. It was a lovely service.

I would like to express my sincere gratitude to all the staff at Freeman Mortuary. My grandma’s funeral service was the last thing I felt I could see done right for a woman of such influence to me. I can truly say all involved with the planning, prep work, and service for my grandma did an amazing job. I was at such peace with saying my final goodbye knowing it was done the way she deserved! THANK YOU!!!

I recently lost my mother who lived in Missouri while living in Florida. I had been blessed to have never had to make funeral arrangements so I was very unfamiliar with the process. Freeman Mortuary was able to start the planning process over the phone while I was driving in. When I arrived in Jefferson City I was able to go by and finalize the arrangements. They were very professional and thorough during the process, to the point of details I would have never thought of. They returned phone calls when promised and made sure every detail was discussed and covered. I can not covey how much this level of service made a difference during a difficult time.

Rebecca Lacey

 

We recently had to say goodbye to our beloved husband and father. Hospice called Freeman's and Kevin Clardy arrived at my home to pick up our loved one. From that moment on I was guided very gently to make the needed choices for the final arrangements. On arriving at the funeral home, Mr. Clardy informed us of all possible choices we had to make and gently lead me down the most difficult road. Ryan Freeman took the obituary information that Kevin Clardy had complied though conversation and remembrance, placing that information into the finished format. During the funeral the staff was extremely aware of every need and asked before we even realized. Kevin and Ryan made a very difficult day from extremely difficult to bearable. The kindness and professional attention to my husband’s funeral was outstanding. I will always be eternally grateful to each and every staff member that in any way worked on this day.

Brenda Schnieders and the rest of Glen Schnieder's Family

 

While never under very cheerful circumstances, we are truly thankful to have the relationship we have established with Freeman Mortuary over the years (as well as my personal relationship with Kevin and the Clardy family). Thank you once again, from the very bottom of our hearts.

Carolyn Brown and Family

 

I just want to say thank you again for all you did to help us with my sisters passing. You and your staff were very professional and caring and helped us work out a plan to take care of her. Being a minister in The Salvation Army, I have dealt with many funeral homes over the years and yours was the best. May God continue to bless the ministry he has given you through Freeman Mortuary.
