Mike and Steve,
I want to thank you for assisting us with my husband’s cremation and burial. Considering the short time we had to make arrangements, you did a fantastic job.
Wanted to take a moment to express our gratitude for your handling of Claire's funeral arrangements... It was critical to her mother that she be able to spend time with her daughter to say her final goodbyes and be able to process what had happened. She spoke to several facilities before deciding to come to see you. She chose your funeral home because you demonstrated the most empathy and willingness to help her achieve her objective. Clearly she made the right choice. THANK YOU is not sufficient to express gratitude for your kindness and compassion in allowing her the extended time she needed to be with Claire. There is nothing that anyone can say or do to lessen the pain that she is feeling following the loss of her daughter, but the time you gave her with Claire was crucial in helping her move forward. She will be grieving for many years, but the time she was able to spend with Claire gave her at least a modicum of peace that would not have been attainable otherwise.
Dear Mike and Staff,
Thank you so much for honoring my husband... Your thoughtfulness is very appreciated.
Steve, Stick, & Emma,
Words like "exceptional," "outstanding," and "awesome" seem inadequate to express how our family views the service you offered for our family. Dad looked so wonderful in his casket, and it was a real comfort to all of us. We were very happy that we saved so much money when we chose you all to help us, but we feel that what we received with you was worth all of the extra money we didn't have to spend! Thank you, from the bottom of our hearts!
Thank you so much for going above and beyond in helping me. Ron's service would not have been as beautiful without your kindness and support.
After being with my aunt for 7 hours at her bedside, watching her pass, it was so hard thinking of calling the funeral home...but when they came, they were so sweet, and not there to "just do a job" they were respectful of not only us, but my Aunt as well. they asked all my questions, Specially Mike aka "Big Mike" he was honest, helped us save as much money as possible. I felt as if, he was out family... it was nice having someone there guide me when I felt so lost. the staff is wonderful. I even made a mistake on her obituary, and without hesitation they fixed it.. they even let me email and text them every second to ask questions, or even vent. I truly love you guys. thank you for helping us put my Aunt to rest!!!
I worked with Mike when my mother died unexpectedly. I could not have asked for a better person to work with me through this process. He understood the financial limits and I never felt pressured in any transaction. Mike and the staff were caring, compassionate, but most of all reasonable. I will certainly recommend and use Family Choice in the future. Janice Delaney

Treated With Dignity, Respect, Compassion, and Honor
My son, daughter and I wanted to take this time to thank you for the dignity, respect, compassion and honor that Anthony Klaves, Michael Strickland and Steve Zille expressed with the passing of my husband, Herbert E. Buchner, Sr. on January 14, 2016. I know in this busy world we take things for granted, however, in our sadness we were blessed being sent to you. Anthony guided us and made recommendations to help ease the pain process. He was timely and more important, compassionate. Anthony did not rush us or make us feel like it was just business as usual and took the time to make our sorrowful event feel personal. I recommend Family Choice on Indian River Road, Virginia Beach to anyone looking for a more personal experience where everyone treats you like you are the only one they are working for. Love and Appreciation, Elaine Buchner Herbert E. Buchner, Jr. Monica Y. Diette Lancaster
Peace of Mind
My family used Family Choice for the cremation and handling of my fathers remains. His funeral was in NM, and the whole process was easy and without any pressure. The Staff was comforting and helpful; making the situation less stressful. It was a blessing. We also recommended them to a close family friend when the need arose. Thank you Family Choice for being there when we were filled with sorrow.
Simple and Easy
In May of 2014 I lost my husband of 29 years. My family has always used another funeral home in the past but after meeting with them and going over their prices I felt that i was just another family and it was all about money. After talking with my pastor, he told me about Family Choice Funeral Home. I'm glad he did. Not only were their prices much better than the funeral home my family has always used, Mike Stricklend made me feel like i was the only family he was helping. I would recommend the staff of Family Choice to any of my friends and family.
