The staff at the Shannon Funeral Home are amazing! Brain took time to talk with us and answer ALL of our questions in a respectful and compassionate manner. We had to make long distance arrangements due to the unexpected passing of our loved one. Brian reassured us on several occasions that their care team would take good care of our loved one. He was knowledgeable, helpful, and patient as we worked out all of the details. He was gracious with our request for pouches of ashes, fingerprints and death certificates. This was our first experience in making funeral arrangements for a loved one and taking care of things long distance added a whole new dimension. We were able to fly down and meet Brian personally and he was awesome! Thanks for caring so much for our loved one. Blessings to you as you continue this service to families.

To Shannon Funeral Home Staff, I wanted to express my "thanks" for your assistance with the passing of my wife Diana. Your expertise and guidance greatly helped us through this difficult period.
Tammy helped my mother and me prearrange her funeral according to Mom's wishes several years ago. When Mom passed away in February, Tammy and Cassie made the whole process as smooth, supportive and comforting as possible, and made us feel like they we part of our family, too. They went above and beyond to accommodate us in every way and follow up afterwards. I couldn't have been more pleased at how they took care of every detail so thoughtfully.
Brian and entire staff are very caring and professional.They took care of all the details. My wife Darlene passed on Jan 28,2018 and wer'e from out of town, And they made a tough time much easier for me and my family
I had two granddaughters cremated at Shannon's and Tammy Valenti helped us with both. She is a very sweet person and has a lot of compassion. She is a total asset. I wish there were more people like her in this world.
Ray, Will, and Tammy were all very helpful and informative about the National Cemetery system. They took great care of our family and coordinated everything for our service at the graveside.
Will Hutchings was very helpful and professional. I appreciate his thoughtfulness and willing to help wherever needed.
Tammy was incredible. She was compassionate and supportive.
Will and everyone were very kind and helpful. They answered all of my questions and were very helpful as I had never been through this before. Thank you very much.

Will H. how do I begin to tell you how you made the worst days of my life bearable. You were so kind to me and my family through everything you did for us - you made it possible for me to participate in the planning with my family. All of you who worked with Michele, I just want to tell you how happy and pleased I was to see her after the pain she went through with that cancer. She looked just beautiful - hair could not have been nicer and so impeccably dressed. Thanks to all of you and to you, Will, I think of you now as a friend. God Bless you and all the staff at Shannon.

I cannot begin to describe how kind and understanding Tammy was and has been since the sudden passing of my spouse. She is a caring and kind soul and always made time to listen to all my needs. THANK YOU!
Dear Tammy, Thank you so much for everything on behalf of our mom, Jennie Riccio. You made a difficult situation a pleasant and positive one. God Bless.
Tammy, Thank you so much for being so compassionate and helpful with the loss of my husband, Norm Sept. 27, 2015. I feel very fortunate to have Shannon Funeral Homes close to our Island and your personal phone calls to assist me and my family every step of the way those first few days. Also, your support thereafter has been most helpful in our time of grieving.
My friend recently passed away and everyone at Shannon's was compassionate and understanding. Making final arrangements is a very tough thing to do. They took the time to explain everything and were very concerned about me as well. I even received a sympathy card that was hand signed by the staff. I am very happy with the service I received for my friend I hope to see her again someday in heaven. Thank you very much Shannon's funeral home, special thanks to Tammy and Mr Ray Shannon.
Thank you for your care and concern for my Dad and my family. My family was impressed from the time we first spoke prior to my Dad's passing, the compassion showed when he was picked up and the patience with us as we made the final decisions. You are all very good at your jobs. Thanks again.
Tammy, Thank you for taking care and helping me get through a difficult time. You are so kind and thoughtful.
All the personnel we had contact with were very helpful and kind, from the lady who picked mom up from her home to Tammy our funeral director.
I cannot say enough about the wonderful and caring treatment that we received from Will and the entire staff. During this very difficult time they made it so much easier.
Will Hutchings was very helpful! We had already done the pre-planning and Will suggested items I would not have thought of, he was wonderful.
It was so nice to have the funeral director take charge and organize everything for us.
Dear Will, My mother and I are so pleased with the service you provided for my daughter, Katherine. We Loved the home, the music, your attention to details, your help with finding the perfect resting place, but most of all how natural your organization made her look. She looked like she was just peacefully asleep. Please commend the person who dressed her and expertly applied her cosmetics. I did not allow her son to see her in the hospital.Gratefully, because of what you and your staff did for her, you made it possible for a seven year old to say good-bye to his mommy when she looked beautiful and at peace. Thank you.
Tammy was very helpful, knowledgeable and friendly. We were very pleased that my daughter could see her father before he was cremated. Additionally, Thank you for the kind gesture of the tree seedling from the Living Memorial Program.
Will was so nice and very helpful during our time in need. Will did everything I asked him to provide, even down to the Scottish Flag that I brought in. And he explained about bringing the cremains back to Scotland. All I can say is, in such short notice Shannon was very helpful to us being that we had to accommodate family coming from out of town. Thank you so much.
You're all extremely kind and did wonderful with my wife and her brother. Will was very caring and helpful. You can tell he is truly concerned about families that have a loss. Thanks so much for taking care of my needs and my wife's. You made it as easy as it could've been. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Your being a family owned funeral home, was an influencing factor, in the decision to select our funeral home. Everything from the funeral director, to the ceremony, to the facilities were very good.
Mr. Shannon, My reason for writing is to Thank-You for all your efforts to help me contact my brothers friend who took care of his arrangements.

You truly opened up your heart to me and made this time of sorrow, a time of light hearted conversation and even laughter. You're that beautiful example of a kind, loving, giving, and sympathetic person we should all strive to imitate. With a sincere Thank You, Deana
