  • I never dreamed I would be writing on a funeral website after my own dad's funeral! I thought all funeral homes were alike and to be avoided as much as possible. My husband suggested that we use the services of the Sproles Family Funeral Home, and was I in for a surprise! Such kindness, such caring, and such attention to details! The long-stemmed rose they left on the bed where Daddy had been and the comfort of getting into a warmed-up car after the funeral are just two examples of how they live up to their motto, "The difference is in the details"! Thanks,Tom, and all the staff who assisted in our time of sorrow. Much appreciation.

  • W e would like to thank you for an excellent job with my mothers funeral. My family, especially my dad, has been to several funerals over the years and we can confidently say the service you provided was by far the best we have ever seen. The attention to detail during the whole process was phenomenal. We had the distinct feeling that this was not just another job for you but a real passion, and all of the staff acted in a very professional and caring manner. This experience was a true blessing during a time of sorrow. We will definitely recommend your funeral home to anyone. May God truly bless all of you in your work and in your lives. Rev.

  • There are not enough words in the English language to describe the love, care and services that you gave to us during the loss of our beloved mother. Your facility, staff and family gave us much comfort and ease knowing that everything was all about us and how we wanted things to be done. Never in our lives have we ever known of a funeral home bringing breakfast to the family of the deceased on the day of the funeral. Thanks to Tom's mother for doing this. It was delicious and much appreciated. Because of the Sproles family, everything went perfect. We know that there will be stars in your crowns someday and that God will bless you for all the extras that you do during the loss of family members and loved ones. Your facility is beautiful and your actions are far beyond measure. Thank you so much.

  • Dear Tom and Sproles Family, We chose Sproles Funeral Home for a 2nd time for my mother's passing Dr. Agnes Tabares. We had chosen Sproles when Mom's sister passed 2 years ago and we were so pleased with them that we made pre-arrangements back in December of 2009 for my mother and father. Tom and his family make you feel so comfortable and they pay attention to every detail. At a terrible time such as the loss of a loved one they make you feel like you are part of their family. They treat you with respect and dignity. Tom's mother was nice enough to fix us a breakfast casserole, bring a gallon of juice and muffins to our home back in 2008. This time when mom passed away we did not have a home in New Castle any longer but Tom's mother fixed the casserole and made sure that we took it home after the viewing. They are all so gracious and helpful. You just feel like you are being well taken care of when you go there. I cannot express in words the gratitude that our family feels towards the Sproles. They know what customer service means. Respectfully,
