What Our Families are Saying

The owners are two of the most caring, helpful people I’ve had the pleasure to meet. They lived beside me for several years and were continually doing thoughtful, kind acts for everyone. I can recommend them with my whole family.

– Judi Fleming

They are family. When you meet them you feel as though your family is going to treat your loved one with respect and tender care. They are also one of the most fair priced Funeral Home you can have. Chris and Calvin WHITAKER are the owners of Howard Michael’s. I feel they thrive on helping those who have lost their loved ones.

-Debra Wahby

Michel Funeral Home was completely professional and sympathetic to all my needs. They went above and beyond what the big Corporate Funeral Parlors wouldn’t even consider. What a great asset to our community. They bring together what fellowship and compassion should be and so caring about our Vets. I am proud to recommend them to all my friends.

-Lynda Byrd
