  • Mr. Goebel and Staff: We would like to thank you for your assistance in preparing the arrangements for Art's funeral. I am particularly thrilled you were able to recruit black vehicles for this sad but dignified time in his final journey home. We would most happily recommend you and your staff to anyone during their time of sorrow.

  • The death of my brother, Steve S. was unexpected and greatly impacted my family. I want to commend your organization for serving my family so professionally and with great empathy. David, you were superb in directing and in interacting so often with me. I certainly appreciate your kind ways in responding to many requests! I certainly will recommend both Graceland Fairlawn and Moran and Goebel Funeral Homes. Thank you so very much! Sincerely,
  • Ron, thank you....more than I can say. You are the best funeral director ever! Thank you so much for your caring and courteous service during my father's funeral/burial services.

  • We were so pleasantly surprised the first time we walked into your funeral home in Decatur. We had placed Tim in Symphony of Decatur to a stroke last September. We were greeted with such warmth and caring during a stressful situation. Everyone that we had contact with from that day on were very caring, we met Chandler Jones and he started us on Tim's arrangements and how we wanted them to be taken cared of. There never was a time that anyone that we talked to or had some communications with hurried us, they listened to what we had to say and always had our best interest in mind. Any phone all, anytime we stopped by to ask questions we were always met with that same warmth. We were always asked if we needed anything while we waited. We never felt like we were an interruption, like a lot of businesses. When Tim passed away in July, everything was taken care of like we had requested, Chandler called us with condolences, and everything was handled with dignity and respect. When papers needed to be signed for our arrangements, Chelsea came all the way over to our house, most places would have asked us to come back to do that. She is very dedicated to making each person that Moran & Goebel does business with the feeling that warmth and respect. We were so impressed with how everything was handled, that my husband and I have made our arrangements with you as well. We both thank you for your kindness during a difficult time, God bless you for the services that you provided. Sometimes older people get shuffled around; we felt nothing but a warmth of kindness.
