“Mike Bell & Chandler Jones did a outstanding job in servicing my grandma and our family during the time of her passing. Chandler were there every step of way from my grandma passing to her funeral and he is still here with us. He have an outstanding character and demeanor that never changed while he was servicing us. You don’t see a lot of professionalism in young people our age and Chandler was very professional and took pride in what he do. And I love that about him. Chandler went above and beyond for my grandma and our family so I really appreciate it and want to thank Chandler and the staff Moran & Goebel for everything you guys have done for us. ”

“I would like to say thank you! Thank you! Thank you! For you guy’s services. Also I would highly recommend them. My Grandmother Shirley Daniels passed on April 10th 2021. They waited for our love ones to come and see her and wasn’t in a rush to get her out the house. They let us help them carry her out and play her favorite song. My grandmother was made up so beautifully. She truly looked like she was sleeping. Our overall experience was A1! Exceptional!!! My grandmother was really out to rest like a Queen that she is. Special thanks to Chandler Jones also. When I say he was there every step of the way, he was there! We greatly appreciate the whole staff.”

“Dave Goebel, Moran/Goble Funeral Home It is with heartfelt appreciation that I wish to express my gratitude for your making it "easy" to plan and to execute my detailed wishes for my husband's funeral and military burial. Your quick response to my requests was simply unbelievable. The cost was reasonable and every detail was handled with utmost care. The service and military burial was matchless with the Macon County Honor Guard, Army National Guard and dueling buglers. Visitors from five states were literally speechless! The service and memorial DVDs were well done, as was the funeral program beautifully designed by your staff and attached to the scriptural testimony booklet written by my husband. The thought was only in my head but you made it reality! Thank you. Dave, you handled every detail at the cemetery effortlessly even down to suggesting which flowers would last longest-now that's paying attention! Customer care is indeed alive and well at Moran & Goebel. T he Decatur Community is fortunate to have your organization. It was a pleasure to do "business" with you. When the time comes I would not even consider anyone else. Thanks again. Nancy S. Funk Decatur ”

“My family has experienced the unimaginable losses of my father and my husband in less than two months. As with most people in my age bracket, this was my first experience walking into a funeral home to make arrangements for someone I've lost. Everyone on the staff I met was exceptionally gentle and kind and their experience in dealing with grief was much needed. Chandler Jones especially stood out to me because, although being such a young man, his heartfelt concern and fellow feeling came across clearly and I felt truly cared for. As my son and I faced both tragedies together alone, with no other family to help us, Chandler stepped up to be with us in our unbearable loss. When I lost my my husband so soon after loosing my father, I knew ahead of time Chandler would be a major part in helping me get through this second set of arrangements. His sincerity, concern and understanding was a great source of comfort. I have always been amazed by ones who choose to place themselves in an occupation such as his because it would require genuine love of others in order to face what they do every day. Chandler is exceptionally qualified for such a needed role. We appreciate him so much! ”

“I just want to express my gratitude to all of you. From Melissa's first visit, she was so patient and kind. She took so much time working with me in between my having to stop and take care of Don's needs. The care and compassion that David showed us while we made the arrangements made us feel more like family than clients seeking out guidance. When Dave and Bob came to get Don, they were both so respectful and concerned. I have to mention Chandler as well. His deep caring and efforts to just make us feel so at ease was just a blessing. To all of you words could never be enough to humbly thank you for everything you did for us. Your name came to us from a very trusted friend. She was right about everything she told us about you. I would highly recommend your services to anyone that needs you. Thank you for making us part of your family when we needed it most. God bless all of you.”
