— Chapman Funeral Homes
Dear Terry & Mary,
This may seem a bit out of the blue. My father, Juan Ignacio Lara, passed away a year and a half ago (September 1, 2014). I was 23, I was the one who had to take care of everything, & I was clueless, devastated, & scared. I don't know how I got so lucky to fall upon your website out of all the countless funeral homes in this area.
I know this is random, but even all this time later, I wanted to thank you both again for the heart and dedication you put into your work. Since my father's passing, I have witnessed the untimely deaths of other people close to me and I have attended other funerals and memorials. What I've noticed is that my father's service was small, but it was special. It was true to who he was. There was nothing extravagant, it was an intimate genuine reflection of him as a human being, and I am eternally grateful to you both. Terry, you counseled me throughout everything & even guided the service a bit yourself. I actually just finished watching the memorial video again, even after all this time. My 4 year old daughter & I often watch it together and it's one of the most treasured belongings I own. Thank you both so very much for your goodness.
Dear Mary and Terry
Thank you for bringing Joe home to me. Your compassion, respect, kindness, and professionalism make me very happy I chose Chapman Funeral Homes to take care of my husband.
I noticed that you only charged me for the original order of 100 prayer cards. Please bill me for the additional 25 cards that I requested for a total of 125 prayer cards. Many of Joe's family and friends have sent condolences from all over Asia and Europe and I need to mail prayer cards to all of them.
I appreciate all your support during this very difficult time. Thank you.
With sincerest gratitude,
I want to thank you profusely for your overall class act professionalism, concerted effort and generosity of spirit.
We are in the south of France, right now, in a lovely villa overlooking the ocean. It is just what I needed. I feel so blessed to have had the mother I had, the husband I have, and you: the ultimate person to have taken care of all my needs at such a fragile time in my life. God certainly did send you to me. Thank you, again and again, Terry.
With great appreciation,
Terry and Mary,

Dear Terry & Mary,
I wish to thank you for what I saw, heard, and sensed in your presence at my house that night of April 16, 2013. Your kindness, intelligence, compassion, artistry, and advice gave me confidence to the very last moment. Thank you very very much for everything you said and did. God bless you always.

A little more kindness grows in the world each time we give from our hearts... Thank you so much for your gracious hearts and feelings and prayers — The total transition to Dorothy was genuinely felt by all and know she "was smiling" throughout... God bless you both and your excellent team.

Dearest Chapman Staff,
This extra special thank you note sent to you today holds more appreciation than any words can say. For you're among the nicest people we have even known, and you'll never be forgotten for the thoughtfulness you've shown. You two will always have a special place in our hearts. We will never forget the kindness you extended to us during this sad time in our lives, losing both our parents.
Sincerely, Ruben, Randy & Valerie Vega family.
I wanted to thank you for the wonderful service you gave to our family. Jeff told me that you and your wife and your staff, were great and he would not want to use anyone else. I now see why he has so much confidence in your service. Every detail was tended to in the most respectful manner. I know you must have given us special considerations in the charges and I truly appreciate that as well. I know you will be blessed in ways that will compensate you.
I got to see the "beating" you take from my granddaughter. She told me you and your wife are "the coolest" and some of her favorite people. Kids cannot have too many good role models in their lives. So as a client, as a sister in the Church and I hope, as a friend, I thank you from the bottom of my heart.
The Peters family
Dear Chapman Funeral Care,
Our kind words cannot be enough to tell you how much you mean to us and our family, during the loss of our father. Your walking us through this hard time, and helping us provide the knowledge and ideas of creating a wonderful, meaningful service in honoring our father. We had no idea that things you provided were even possible, and you did not make us feel obligated to spend our money. In fact, we feel we did not pay enough to Chapman Funeral Home. A special thank you to Mary, for the wonderful and touching DVD memorial. We watch it often, and it helps us remember our father with even more fond memories. You and your staff are the best!
Thank You again, please be watching for a special gift from our family to yours.
The Gordon Family, and grandkids

Dear Chapman Funeral Home,

Dear Chapman Funeral,
Words cannot express how much your kindness and Professionism meant to our family.
You helped to make the passing of my mother easier for all of us to bear. From the time we first met with you, we felt that you cared about every detail. You showed compassion for the grief we were experiencing. I never felt like this was a business for you, it is your calling! I was so happy that you were there to dedicate my Mother's and also my Father's grave. When my father passed — it seemed like the other funeral home didn't care about him, or us. This experience was so different — So comforting. Thank you for holding our hearts and hands and getting us through such a difficult time.
The Conrad Family
Thank you for your professionism and kind support during our goodbyes to my sweetheart, James. The respect and thoughtfulness you showed to him, to me, and to his father, Tino, made this difficult time so much easier. Gratefully, Marderosian.
Chapman Funeral Care Staff:
What a pleasure to write this card of "Thanks". You folks made our decisions so much easier, and we had to say Goodbye to our mother, Rose. You made the pain truly be just a little more able to handle in our hearts. You people truly have a gift. Thank You so much,
Sincerely, The Belcastro family.
Just a quick note, we wanted to take just a moment and tell you "THANK YOU" for all you did for our family, during this hard time of losing our mother. She was a gem, in our lives. We know she was going to pass, but still, having her die in our home, was still a hard time, and we saw her pass on into the next life. When you came to our home to pick her up, the moment you walked into our home, and gave that magical comfort, we knew we chose the right funeral home. Thank you for everything !
Sincerely, Jenny Pastis
