    I just want to commend Wilks Funeral Home, their staff and especially Shawn Cobbley for the "beyond the call of duty" care they gave us after the passing of my father, Jack Wells. I have dealt with several funeral homes over the years, and I can honestly say that Wilks, and Shawn, are the most caring and concerned group I have ever encountered. I would never recommend another funeral home to someone after the wonderfully caring help from this amazing group! Read more

    I wasn't sure what to expect in planning final arrangements for my Mother in Law. Wilks went above and beyond knowing exactly how to help us make hard decisions that unfortunately weren't made in advance. They were incredibly considerate and lovely to work with. This confirmed our decision to have them handle our services. We chose cremation, and they helped us feel comfortable and no less important even without a burial service. Would HIGHLY recommend them!

    Brock and the staff at Wilks Funeral Home were amazing to work with. Discussing funeral plans before my mother passed away was particularly hard on my father but Brock gave him the time and space to grieve the thought of her passing. Little did we know, the following day would be her last. He guided us through the process and helped make the services exceptional. From start to finish, we will always remember his compassion and professionalism. Thanks again Brock and team! Read more

    We are learning that even as time passes, the grief and emptiness of losing a child can be overpowering. It is easy to get lost in the memories and emotions as we come to terms with our new reality. It is because of this difficulty that we wish to thank you and your staff for guiding us through "needful things" while we were literally in shock. You have perfected the art and skill of honoring those who have passed, and comforting those that remain. The detailed care in which you provided our dear son as you transferred and prepared his little body to rest was very sacred and respectful. He looked happy and peaceful. We were very impressed by the ingenuity and creativity that you demonstrated as we spoke of Konner and his interests. We were able to incorporate so much of his life into the viewing and memorial services in fun and tasteful ways. We felt that through your help and insight, we were able to tell his story to those who didn't know him like we did. Every detail was addressed completely. Selecting casket, vault, program, and monument options were not rushed or hurried. We felt that we were allowed to move along at our own pace and make decisions that we were comfortable with. We never felt like the money, or payment options were the focus of our choices. We were able to focus completely on our boy. Thank you so much for taking care of our family. Thank you for understanding this difficult process and helping us navigate through it. Thank you for seeing the importance of " the little things". Thank you for being experts at your craft.

  • Andrzej Abraszewski LLD - United Nations-Committee on Administrative and Budgetary Questions, New York

    October 14, 2008

    I am writing to you to express my deep appreciation for all your kindness, professionalism and compassion you extended to me in an extremely difficult moment of my life. My son Dr. Paul Abraszewski died on June 24, 2007 in accident of white-water kayaking on Blackfoot River in Idaho. This was a terrible blow for me, my wife Teresa and Lee-Paul's wife. We decided to have all funeral services for Paul in Pocatello and then transport his body to Warsaw, Poland for burial in a family grave. All religious and memorial services went very smoothly with a large attendance. Transportation of our son's coffin to Warsaw was a complicated operation. You were very knowledgeable of all material and legal requirements governed by convention on an international transport of human remains to which both the United States and Poland were parties. You had everything ready and on time. I was impressed by your precise planning and invention to overcome unforeseen difficulties. Thanks to you everything went well and the long voyage completed as planned. I would like to use this opportunity again to express my gratitude to you and assure you that if such a need arises I would with full conviction recommend you and your services to anyone as exemplary in competence and human qualities.

    We want to thank you for the service provided to my/our family by your funeral home. Your service and staff were very compassionate and caring.

    Thank you for the tender care of my family at Rob's passing. Your professional advice and counsel aided us in making difficult decisions at a heart-wrenching time. We also appreciated you coming to our home and explaining all of your services when we weren't able to come to you. Your willingness to "adapt" and make last minute "adjustments" went so smoothly too. You will be highly recommended by myself and my family. May God bless your endeavors and all you strive to do.

  • Family of Ronald Reece

    February 05, 2013

    As a family we want to give to you our most heart felt thanks from the depths of our souls for the most tender, charitable and skilled manner with which you assisted us as we struggled and grieved when our beloved Ron left us. Our spirits were especially lifted as we saw Ron. He looked so peaceful and natural. What a great relief it was to us as our last view had been of him so terribly insulted by medical efforts to keep him alive. So grateful are we that our last moments with him were beautiful and peaceful as it had been in the years he was alive. We were pleasantly surprised when you informed us that you were staying at the cemetery until all the work was completed, some of Ron's brothers had planned to do that and this allowed them to be with family and go back after the luncheon. The DVD, pictures and settings were exceptionally well done, soothing and reminded all again of the blessing he had been and still is in our lives. You provided such outstanding service to us in a time of great need. We will always be humbled and ever grateful for your tender help. Read more
