We are always interested in hearing from the families that we serve. Please take a moment to let us know how well we served you in your time of need. We very much appreciate your feedback.
I have attended two funerals for family members at Chism Family Funeral Home. Each time, the staff were professional and caring. As I live out of state, it was a challenge, but James Chism and staff helped us through the hurdles and provided valuable resources. As my husband was a veteran, he had military honors and I was guided through all the proper military procedures. Many thanks.
We have said our Goodbye to 2 family members on two different occasions and both times you and your staff made it into a good remembering experience. Thank You.
This funeral home is top notch, it's never a place you want to have to walk into but from the moment we did James took such great care of me when my husband passed away. He accommodated us in every way. He was so warm and calming. I felt my husband was shown the utmost respect and was truly celebrated as a veteran. I can't enough good things about this business. They really do treat you like family.
I would like to truly thank James Chism and Staff for their professionalism, dedication to families, patience, and genuine loving support given to my Family during the passing of my mother Mrs. Annie Carlisle. The phenomenal work that was done to ensure that my mother was presented and laid to rest with beauty, dignity, and respect was nothing other than AMAZING!! Thank you for taking the time to show compassion and sympathy in such a overwhelming and painful time in our lives - words cannot express how much we THANK and truly appreciate You. Please know that your Expertise and Labor of Love is NOT in Vain. May GOD continue to BLESS You ALL and keep you STRONG!

James and Amanda were so kind and thoughtful during the recent passing of our daughter. They went way above that which one would normally expect during this time of grief to comfort and console our family, including our two small grandchildren (ages 7 & 8) and made
the celebration of her life bearable. God Bless the both!!

A year ago we walked in your doors with emptiness inside our hearts. Losing Mom was one of hardest days of lives June 15th 2019! Now a year later, we reached out because Dad passed away suddenly June 17th, 2020. You both are true blessings in our lives. In our darkest hours, you provided love, compassion, and understanding. We thank you often for Everything and you will hold special places in our hearts forever. Thank you again for being so kind and helping us through these difficult times.
Words simply cannot express our gratitude to James and his team for the comfort and compassion shown during our time of loss and grief. We admire every aspect of the event, from our first call, through the planning process and the final committal.
Thank you again and blessings always!
There are not enough words to express our deep gratitude for the Chism Family. The compassion you showed when helping our family in such difficult circumstances was such a comfort. The Service was just what dad wanted. From picking up Dad from our home, to the service which showed such professionalism. Not just the professionalism but the compassion you showed to us all is just beyond words. James your soft tone when speaking to my mom brought me to tears. You are truly blessed to be in this line of work. Although it was difficult that our friends could not attend during the COVID19 pandemic you still make it special for us. God Bless you and your family. We are forever grateful.
On behalf of our family, we would like to thank the Chism family for their kindness and compassion. Rarely do you find such a caring and professional business that truly cares about their patrons. God Bless you and thank you again. Bobby would be proud.
James and family,
Our family expresses its deepest gratitude for your caring assistance and attention to detail during our difficult time of loss and grief. It has been exceptionally comforting that you and your staff not only beautifully attended to our immediate needs but also to the smallest of details. During the course of the past few days and weeks, we were never made to feel as strangers. We felt you cared for us and became part of our healing process. Your kindness helped to carry us through during our extreme heartache and loss.

James , Amanda and the rest of the staff are wonderful.
Thank you for taking care of our Momma
From the moment I called to come in to make arrangements for my daughter, I have felt a deep sense of compassion from the entire staff/family. From extending deadlines to "I can take care of that" to responding to my questions via text, I know my daughter was (is) an utmost priority. The day of her funeral, James was so accommodating. I knew there was supposed to be a timeline, but we never felt it. I truly recommend this family because they are not only professionals, but are caring. This website has a place you can go for grief help.
On behalf of the family of Irene DeOcampo. We are so grateful for James, Keith, Lane and the entire staff, for making this difficult time for our family, such an easy transition. Our mom is especially thankful for how James Chism made our Nanay look perfect. She was truly beautiful. You really outdid yourself.
Love and respect to all of you. We know this isn't an easy job, but somebody's got to do it?! Thank you, thank you, thank you, for ALL that you do.
Jim and the entire staff of Coffee & Chism were beyond professional in their conduct, beyond caring in their heartfelt sympathy for my family and went above and beyond to meet our needs during this trying time. having to navigate 7 brothers was no easy task with constant direction changes but Jim pulled it off. I was expecting a business but was greeted by family. Cannot say enough about their contribution to ease our pain and assist has we said goodbye to our daddy. Thank you for all you did and continue to do.
James was absolutely amazing throughout the entire process of my mother's visitation and funeral. I can't count how many times he said "I'll take care of it" and he did it with compassion and professionalism. I truly appreciate everything that was done for me and my family. It's never easy dealing with the logistics of a loved ones death but James handled it all allowing my family to focus on each other. With sincerest gratitude. -Maria
