My favorite cousin, Kathe, died nearly three years ago. Kathe had Down’s syndrome; she was very difficult to understand when she spoke but being born and always knowing her, we understood what she was saying. She had wonderful happiness about her that was contagious. She and I could easily laugh,...

We had a lady a few months ago that lost her husband of 60 years of marriage. The lady was very sweet, grandmotherly, and very much a lady. She apologized at the introduction that I was not speaking loud enough to her. She spoke very loud and clear, so I adjusted my internal volume, and we had a ...

I had a little lady at the funeral home a few months ago. She had been married to her husband for 71 years! She was cute, snarky, and clever with her words. She shared, “we were married 71 years and 70 of them were happily”.

I think she was trying to make a joke, but she accidentally said it ba...

This week I had one of the funniest "widows" I have ever met with. Her husband had died the night prior, and she was dealing with his loss with humor and grace. We connected well and shared funny stories. Today she brought me a T-shirt she had made for me that reads,

An autopsy is ordered when a death occurs due to but not limited to accidents, suicide, homicide, unknown, or unexpected deaths. My maternal grandmother was a “coroner’s case”. Due to a fall to the floor and a broken hip, she had surgery and was recovering nicely until one morning during recovery...

Last week I was with a family that was in planning a viewing and service followed by cremation. I left the arrangement room for a few minutes to print up the authorizations and service schedule. When I was ready and walking back to the family, I could hear discussions coming from the arrangement...

The question being.... “are you able to take cases”?

When I hear those words, it makes me so sad, because most of the public does not refe...

Not knowing I needed to have made prior arrangements, I found myself in a panic on Easter Sunday when my mother passed away. Despite it being a holiday evening, I was put in direct contact with Derrick of McKenzie Mortuary rather than a recording or an answering service. Derrick was kind, patient, and far from pushy while explaining the necessary steps to proceed. The entire process was eased by the professional and compassionate staff who were always responsive to my phone calls. Weeks after the arrangements were settled, McKenzie staff even checked in on my well being. In summary, McKenzie Mortuary was efficient, professional, and compassionate. I would not hesitate to recommend or use them again in the future.

My family and i used McKenzie's services for my father's funeral back in the beginning of the month of May. They were truly helpful in all aspects of the arrangements that were needed to be made. They made the transition very easy and stress free when having to coordinate my fathers funeral. We were truly grateful for what they did for my family & my father. Bonnie was an absolute angel and we are truly grateful for her & her support. I would definitely recommend using the services that they provide. Thank you guys so much from the Alvarez-Ruiz family.

McKenzie has assisted with many passings within my family. My husband, my son, my aunt, my uncle. Every time they have been considerate and understanding of my pain. It’s hard enough dealing with family death, then to deal with arrangements is difficult at best. McKenzie will get you through it efficiently, effectively and as economically as possible. I highly recommend them.
