We receive many letters from the families we've served, thanking us for our caring ways during their time of loss. Their words warm our hearts, and speak to you of our professionalism, compassion, and the true value of the services we provide.

"Greg, I want to express to you my appreciation for your professional and kind attention to Lyle and the necessary arrangements. The event could not have been improved upon in any way and your presence and support was greatly appreciated. Even the weather cooperated and the sun broke out as the service was ending! I do want to share a cute little comment. One of the young ones said "Grandma, who is that man that keeps holding your arm?" Guess they were looking out for me already! So cute. Anyhow, thanks again for everything."

"Shannon was beyond anything I could have imagined when it came to meeting someone to do my wife's funeral arrangements. The amount of compassion she has and shows is so sincere and much appreciated. No matter the questions I threw at her she always had the answer and made me feel well taken care of. There just aren't enough adjectives to describe Shannon. Thanks for everything."

"This was our third funeral working with Greg Boyko. He kept me on schedule, so we ended on schedule. Mr. Boyko made everything easy for me. Always asked the questions, "What do you want?", which made me stop and think and brought me back to reality."

Greg went above and beyond to make sure our loved one was interred at Sacramento Valley National Cemetery for which we will be forever grateful. I certainly would recommend Bryan-Braker.

"I just wanted to send a quick message to thank you for the kindness that 2 of your employees showed my dear friends. Nicole came with a very dapper looking gentleman, I'm sorry I missed his name although they both introduced themselves. They came to pick up my neighbor. I have helped take care of my neighbor for the last couple of months. His wife, of course, is having a hard time and both your staff were such sweet caring people. Just wanted to thank them. It's greatly appreciated."

"I felt that they cared and that's very important when you've lost someone and you don't know what you should do next. The people at Bryan-Braker were there to help me every step of the way."

"I wanted to express my sincere gratitude to your employee, Nicole. Several months ago I had the painstaking duty of pre-arranging my mother's funeral. Nicole sat down with me, displayed empathy, and showed me the utmost courtesy. I returned to Bryan-Braker to do the last minute details required of a funeral service and finalize the arrangements. Nicole helped me make good, well thought, decisions when I was struggling. She dealt with myself and my niece as we had to choose verses for memory folders, choose pictures, and other details. Again I cannot tell you how much I appreciate the professionalism mixed with the perfect balance of caring that Nicole showed us. She tried and succeeded in making us feel like she was part of our family and would ensure my mother's funeral service would be everything we desired it to be........and it was. I could not be more pleased with Bryan-Braker, Nicole, and the entire staff, including drivers, who assisted me in arranging and executing my mother's funeral service. "

"I had no doubt at all that Bryan-Braker family would fully deliver on all my needs on behalf of my beloved sister. Thank you to everyone that helped along the way. I have always appreciated the attention to detail I've witnessed in all the services I've been involved with [at Bryan-Braker]."

"The person on the phone called me promptly and arrange for me to contact Shannon Parra. Shannon did an excellent job explaining the services at Bryan-Braker and gave us pictures to view of flowers, caskets and memorial card options. She was very caring with us. I was extremely happy with the amount of time was got to spend with my Dad during the visitation. He looked handsome and well groomed in his uniform. Excellent presentation of my Dad. Shannon took care of the arrangements for the Navy to be there for the flag presentation were taken care of; It was very touching. Also, white gloves were provided for the pallbearers. Shannon was an exceptional professional. I will always be so grateful for the time she provided us during the visitation to see all our guests and have the eating patio [Garden Court] to see people. Excellent patio area for refreshments."

"...how comfortable, and taken care of we felt after speaking with Greg about everything or anything. He helped guide and advise us with items we needed figuring out; how he treated us with gentleness and respect; calmed our worries; comforted us. He made us feel like long time, cherished friends/sisters! We will never forget his loving kindness!!! Camille (chapel attendant) is AMAZING; totally organized everything to look so beautiful and perfect!! What a gift and talent she has!! She made it look so effortless, but we KNOW it wasn’t, and how hard you ALL worked to make it seem so; to make us feel so...LESS stressed, for lack of a better word! Ron (parking lot attendant) stood in the rain and patiently helped and directed our guests where to park. What a GREAT Team/Family you all have there at Bryan-Braker!!"

Luselle Skaj (One of Wayne Bouck’s grateful daughters) April 03, 2018

"What a special person Ms. Shannon is, without her positive word my loss would have been much harder to go through. Thank you, Shannon. What more could I have asked for to have someone that really cared for my family from the start to the very end."

Calvin W. May 22, 2017

Thank you to John Thompson and the entire staff at Bryan-Braker funeral home. The kindness and caring from all of you was so much appreciated. During the most difficult times of this process, you all were there to help and make everything ok. Thank you again from the entire Barros Ohana.

Barros Ohana July 02, 2014

I so appreciated the compassion and sensitivity at Bryan-Braker when I decided to pre-plan a cremation. I would highly recommend Bryan-Braker to anyone who either needs help in a time of loss or who wants to, like me, take care of funeral needs beforehand.
