Your feedback

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.

When i lost my husband Dan was more than helpful and took so much time to make sure everything i wanted was handled. His kindness didn't stop at that point, i was alone and he was by my side thru the whole funeral, guided me thru the service thru the grave side ceremony and thru the gathering after the service. Had he not done all that extra i'm sure i would have been totally lost. He kindness didn't stop on that day, for weeks afterwards he made contact to make sure i was ok and if there was anything more he or the staff could do to help me. This is exactly what is needed at a time when you have all you can do to keep your thoughts straight.

The managers are compassionate and helpful. They are knowledgeable about immediate needs of family and are informed about social security and automobile transfers. I particularly appreciated the photo prepared for the viewing and as a keepsake. Follow up call was appreciated. Managers treated arrangements as a calling not simply as a business transaction - I would recommend Vickery Funeral home to folks in the Troy PA area.

I highly recommend using Vickery Funeral Home for your funeral services. Dan was very professional, kind, and sympathetic. The service that he provided for us was very efficient and quick. Dan made a sad and difficult time a little bit easier. Thank You.

Dan Gilliland and Vickery’s Funeral Home is top notch. From the “behind the scenes” work to the up-front “feeling like family”, Dan was 100%.
Dad’s arrangements had been set forth forever but even in light of that, there are decisions to be made and handled and the family unit requires facilitating... again, 100%.
Unlike my siblings, I did not know Dan and it only took the first “virtual” handshake, to know we were at the right funeral home and with the perfect match in Dan.
Thank you for your expertise and care, the family is grateful.

I would highly recommend the services of Vickery Funeral Home. Dan Gilliland and staff took immediate action to make Dad's funeral the best possible memorial. Planning an unexpected funeral of a loved one while grieving can be overwhelming. Even with pre planned arrangements, many decisions still have to be made. Every little detail fell into place very quickly with the expertise of the team at Vickery. They were there for us 10 years ago when Mom passed away and now in June for Dad's services. It felt like Dan was part of our family. We are so very thankful.

All went above and beyond their regular duties. Mr. Gilliand was very kind, courteous and helpful even staying late to get mother's obituary sent out to meet the deadline. Even though mother has all arranged, there were still lose ends to tie up and Dan explained it all so well.
I believe folks went beyond normal what was required of a business. It was an extremely hot day but all were dressed very professionally and made sure cold water was supplied to family and friends. Everyone was very knowledgeable.
Our family has been involved with Vickery for generations and have always been extremely satisfied with their caring service. They are very professional.

Dan Gilliland was a pleasure to work with. He handled every detail with care, warmth, and compassion. He exceeded every expectation. He taught us things we didn't know or understand. He was professional in his manner, yet so very personable. I appreciated him and all of his work of our behalf. He did everything we asked for, and then some. We are grateful for all he did.

Dan was very kind and compassionate. Makes the loss of mom as easy as possible for us.
It was a relief that mom had preplanned with you, making it less stressful for us.

I couldn't have asked for a smoother and more generous person to handle my mom's services than Dan Gilliland. Dan had answered all of our questions before we even knew to ask them and did it with grace and a great amount of professionalism. We knew that we didn't have to worry about anything with mom's services and trusted him wholly with all the preparations. He was wonderful and I would highly recommend his services. Thank you so much to Dan and everyone at Vickery for everything you do to make this very difficult process even the slightest bit tolerable. Hugs and thanks again!

I was very nervous that day even though I took everything I could to help me get everything right. But in no time I was relaxed and things just went so smooth. Dan was just wonderful and so was Pastor.

Nothing was left out. Dan was wonderful even giving me his cell phone number, which I had to use a couple of times to add to the newspaper. And to order flowers as it was a holiday and I couldn't get up with anyone.Thank you

Dan was the perfect funeral director. From the first call I made to him to receiving the death certificates he did everything perfect. He made this difficult time for me so much more bearable and was so dependable that his voice or presence made me feel everything was under control.

Geral Vickery has been a pillar of the community my entire life. So using Vickery for my fathers service was a given. Dan Gilliland is the kindest, most thoughtful, hard working, dependable funeral director I have known since Jerry Vickery himself
