Testimonials - San Jose, CA

Thank you again chi Vanna for taking care of the funeral details for our family during our difficult times. Getting a church mass on a weekend during lent season was very challenging, yet you pulled through for us at a beautiful church.
One star off is for the florist, through the website was below par. Please go with the nearby florists who cater to this at much more reasonable prices. The families would really appreciate this to avoid any embarrassments

My family and I were very impressed with the quality of service we received from Darling & Fischer, specifically from their manager, Pam.

We came to Darling & Fischer at the end of our ropes during Holy Week this year. My grandfather had just passed away, and the funeral home he had a contract with, which I will not name, would not have been able to perform his funeral and burial service until the week after Easter (apparently even such a large funeral home was unable to book anything on short notice). My whole family, which included my grandfather’s two daughters, are all from Canada, and it would have been almost impossible to wait almost 2 weeks after his passing to do his funeral and burial service.

Pam was able to see us on such short notice, and did such an admirable job. Her and her team was able to get a copy of my grandfather’s funeral contract within 24hours of meeting with her, and so we didn’t need to pay anything out of pocket. Her team pretty much had one full day to prepare (on a Thursday) and we were able to have his funeral service (visitation and prayer vigil) by Friday. She was also able to get the priest who also did my grandmother’s service (she passed away the year prior) on a Good Friday. In addition, she was able to get military honours for my grandfather, who was a WWII veteran. On the day of the burial (a few days after), Pam was able to get a police escort from the funeral home to my grandfather’s gravesite for the funeral party. Pretty much everything that we had wanted to honour my grandfather’s memory came to fruition thanks to Darling & Fischer.

Pam and Lorraine and the rest of her team literally went above and beyond to ensure most of my family who came was able to be at my grandfather’s funeral service. Their decor for the funeral service was top-notch, and was impressive considering the limited amount of time that they had to complete everything.

I would definitely recommend Darling & Fischer to any looking for service from a funeral home, specifically their East Santa Clara location. The staff was very patient and respectful towards us, and very profession and helpful. The service we received from them was way better than the service we had ever received from the other funeral home we dealt with. My whole family owe a debt of gratitude to Pam and her team for turning what began as a horrific experience into something very positive. Thank you so much!

The importance of the grieving family feeling supported, heard, respected...and of your passed loved one being treated with honor and dignity does not go unnoticed by the team at Darling & Fischer. They made a very difficult time as bearable as possible - not a simple task that can be handled by just anyone. Our entire family sincerely appreciated them and the work they did for us.

Dear Pam; Thank you so much for all your love and support through the most difficult days of my life. Craig is the love of my life and what we had together was so very special. When you came along, it was as if God sent an angel to earth to love me through this--thank you seems way too small for all you did. ...

Tanya: Thank you for your service and compassion in setting up my Mom's Funeral Mass and Burial. You, Connie and Carlos treated us like "family". It really helped in such a stressful and sad time in our lives. Knowing that all details were handled so properly and that we did not have to worry, made it bearable. You are truly dedicated people and it is truly appreciated. Thank you, Angie, Gary and Family

Bob,  We really appreciated everything that you did for our grandfather/father/husband.  The days preceding the funeral were some of the most difficult we have ever been faced with but your kindness made them much easier. Everything during the funeral, mass, and burial was perfect, which is what he deserved.  You guys did a wonderful job with him as well.  We will be forever grateful for everything.  It is very clear that for you this is more than just a job.

Dear Bob,  Because of you I now have a completely different conception of the dreaded mortuary, cemetery scene. Because of you my most feared “must face” resulted in a pleasant informative meeting.  You have a magical way of comforting people and putting them at ease.  I can’t thank you enough.

M.S. of San Jose, CA

Dear Michael,  Thank you so much for all your help and certainly going above and beyond the norm in handling, Bob’s Funeral arrangements. It’s such a difficult time and your kindness and compassion were definitely noted and appreciated. The Prayer cards and laminate obituary were appreciated as well as the slides show. your even supplying your own television at the service reception. I’ve received 150 sympathy cards and the outpouring of respect and affection for Bob has been overwhelming. He would have been 72 yesterday and was taken from us much too soon. Bob’s interment was handled very nicely by Los Gatos Memorial Park. Bob was laid to rest beside a Shapely Pepper Tree, in the older section of the Park. I visit it often. Thank you again, Michael.
