Testimonials


From the first call, we knew Brian was right to plan the life celebration that our beloved friend deserved. And as well, a unique moment for the surviving friends and family to share his life and their own personal experiences connecting to him.
We recommend Brian and McCarthy most highly and cannot thank him enough for keeping us focused at a time of enormous grief. His is a sincere commitment to the families of the deceased and honoring their memory. In gratitude, Susan and the family/friends of Richard Cobb

Brian McKinney made the difficult process of saying goodbye to my Father a truly beautiful farewell. He is legitimately concerned for his clientele and has high personal standards which are reflected in all aspects of the business. I highly recommend McCarthy, McKinney & Lawler Funeral Home for a professional, supportive and caring Final Farewell for your loved ones.

Having been lifelong friends of the previous owners of McCarthy's Funeral Home, we were were slightly apprehensive about working with the new owners with whom we had no relationship. Any concerns were immediately put to rest during our first conversation with the new Funeral Director, Brian McKinney. He expertly guided us through the process and took care of every last detail for us. There were special circumstances surrounding my mother's funeral and Brian went above and beyond the call of duty of a funeral director. Over the days leading up to and including the funeral, Brian seemed like more of a very helpful family member than he did just a funeral director. He and his staff treated our family with respect, kindness and sensitivity during the most somber time of our lives. He did an amazing job of creating personal touches for the wake that made our family and friends feel that the services were truly a celebration of Mom's life, which we greatly appreciate.

My family and I want to thank Brian and the whole team for helping us through the passing of my Father on May 22nd. Brian was able to walk us all through all the things we needed to do without making things seem pressured or rushed and handled all those small details we would never remember. Brian took the time to explain all the options available to us but did so without pushing anything and helping us avoiding excess expense. Additionally, without pressure, we opted to add in the celebration of life package which turned out to be much more than we expected-done with dignity and style they provided so many unique ways to share in the remembrance of my Father. Thanks again from the Keilty Family!

My sincere thank you to Brian McKinney, for making what was the worst time of my life, so much easier for me. He took all the stress of making funeral arrangements out of my hands. Brian did everything for me. In addition, he is the kindest and most caring gentleman I have come across in a very long time. His very friendly manner made me so relaxed and comfortable from beginning to end of his service. My husband had been sick for a long time and did not resemble himself at all when he had passed away. I gave Brian a picture of my husband and he set my husband totally by a picture of a long time ago. I was shocked when he was waked. My husband looked exactly as he was before he became sick. This was so comforting to my entire family as this was the last image we had of my husband and forever lasting. As if all this was not enough, his prices were very reasonable. We could not have asked for more. On behalf of my family and I, we again would like to thank Brian McKinney from the bottom of our hearts for making a very painful time in our lives so much easier for all of us!

Brian and all of the staff at McCarthy, McKinney, and Lawler Funeral Home went above and beyond their call of duty while allowing my family to put our beloved father to rest. As soon as we spoke on the phone, I could tell Brian genuinely cared in a way most other places did not, I immediately knew we were in the best hands. No price can be put on what Brian and his staff did for us, they were a bright light in a very dark time and they gave us the gift of peace, and a beyond beautiful service for our father that truly honored and celebrated his life. We are and always will be forever grateful, to say we highly recommend would be an understatement! It's not every day you that you come across a business that has as much heart as they do professionalism. Thank you all so much from the bottom of our hearts.
Sincerely,
Brianna L. And Family

McCarthy, McKinney & Lawler (MM&L) did a wonderful job for our family when our mom recently passed away, bringing both capability and caring to a difficult time as we faced saying goodbye and honoring her. Brian spent considerable time with my siblings and me by understanding our priorities for Mom and being sensitive to helping us make decisions that were both appropriate and practical with those in mind. Once we confirmed our decisions with Brian, we were able to turn over the reins to him and just be in the moment, where we needed to be. Every aspect of her wake, funeral and interment went so smoothly with supportive folks from MM&L on hand at all times. Our entire family sends a heart felt thank you.
