What Families Have to Say About Us

Vance Brooks took amazing care of us throughout the entire process. Everyone was very kind and caring and, above all, respectful of everyone in the family. From start to finish, we couldn’t have asked for a better experience given the circumstances. Thank you, to all the staff.


They delivered the Best service for my family during our time of bereavement. Any questions we had they answered with diligence and even took time to check up on us afterwards. My family and I thank you so much and would HIGHLY recommend you to others. Thanks sooooooo much!! #GodBless


Excellent, caring and professional staff. Took care of all our wants and needs with genuine empathy.


Vance-Brooks Funeral Home ran circles around the one across the street on Macon Road. We used the other one for my Mom 11 years ago when she passed and went back to use them for convenience, until we were treated like we was buying a car and dealing with the a high pressure car salesmen. We decide to contact Vance-Brooks Funeral Home and it was altogether a different experience. These people are so nice and helpful and genuinely care…


At a very difficult time during the pandemic Vance helped us tremendously trying to get it together for my Mothers funeral. She looked like an angel as they worked with us in making everything beautiful. Thank you Vance for the live stream so family & friends could view momma’s homegoing service.


These are some of the kindest, comforting, and helpful people I’ve ever met. They went out of their way and above and beyond for me and my loved ones. I’d like to really thank Charles Shaw for the respect and love he showed us. You sir are amazing and your kind actions don’t go unnoticed. Thank you. I’d recommend to anyone going through this unfortunate event to give them a call. They really want what’s best for the family and their loved one and they will help you. Much love.
