  • Tom, David & Staff, Words cannot express how appreciative I am for the comfort and guidance you provided on my mother's passing. While your business is well organized and beautiful, few can match the compassion you all exemplified - for that I am in awe and grateful. All the best to each of you in 2018. Lisa McNelis.

  • Having participated in literally hundreds of funeral services across the years we thought we had seen it all. That was obviously before the passing of Trisha's mother, Mildred Smith, last week. The decision to utilize the services of Sproles Family Funeral Home was made many months ago and we knew, within reason, it was a good decision. However, we had no point of reference at that time to the professional, compassionate, caring and altogether unexpected attention to detail we would experience with Tom Sproles and his staff. Going far beyond industry "standards" Tom anticipated our needs. No request was too large, or small, to merit his attention and ready response. Nothing was left unattended. The "extra" personal touches were comforting and overwhelming to our entire family. In a society which has generally forsaken its roots and moorings it is comforting to know there still are those, like the Sproles family, who continue to promote and exercise excellent business practices with compassion and dedication. THANK YOU , TOM! Larry and Trisha Jewett for The Mildred Smith Family

  • There is no foot too small that it cannot leave an imprint on this world…as did 5 week old T.J. Pine. We are so honored to have been given the chance to help his family celebrate his short lived life. Here are the sweet words his family had for us in return: “Suffer the little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God” Mark 10:14 “Your comforting remembrance and kindly thoughts are deeply appreciated…” “Thank you so much for the love and compassion you showed to us during this difficult time. Thank you for meeting every need we had and making all our requests happen. Tom, you are truly amazing and I pray for God’s blessings to fall on you.” - The family of T.J. Pine

Everyone was helpful and supportive making a difficult time easier to handle. We also want to thank you for the Heritage Company inspirational volume sent in Tom's memory. What a nice gesture by the local business community. You have our genuine appreciation for everything.
