Our experience with Hillier after the recent passing of my father-in-law was remarkable. Each phase -- from the retrieval of his body to the small luncheon at the funeral home -- was done with the utmost respect, kindness, and professionalism by Hunter and his staff. For such a young professional, Hunter showed a depth of understanding and compassion, as well as confident guidance, in helping us through an unknown and difficult process. We were also very grateful for the military honors put into place of which we would not have been aware of. The death of a loved one is never easy; having the help and support of Hillier's was a gift our family will always be grateful for.
Glenn and the staff of Bryan's Hillier Funeral Home -- especially Anita, Micah and Colette -- provided outstanding service as we honored Peter L. "Pete" Scamardo's life. Hillier was truly a home for our family and friends to grieve his passing, to celebrate his love that lives in our hearts and to pray in word and song. With every step, Glenn and his team were compassionate, gentle, patient, understanding -- from receiving his body until laying it to rest --listening attentively to our desires and ideas while guiding us through the myriad decisions. The integration of photographs and memorabilia transformed a beautiful facility into a space filled with Dad's presence, allowing us to share tears and laughter, to recall and cherish memories. And, the coordination with St. Joseph's Church and Msgr. John McCaffrey -- to whom our family is deeply grateful for the beautiful Mass and consoling words on Pete's life -- and transportation to the cemetery was well done. Hillier exceeded our expectation in every ways, it delivered quality service at a reasonable cost. We celebrated and honored Daddy as a loving, humble and wise man, thanks to the men and women who are Hillier.
I could not have done all of the planning and care without all of you! You all helped carry out a wonderful day to honor my beloved husband, Ed. We (our family and friends) were all so pleased with the results. We feel blessed. Thank you for the lovely flowers you have sent us too.
Hillier Funeral Staff,
Thank you so much for making Mr. Murray's services so beautiful. Also, thank you for the roses. God bless you all.

Thank you for your services.
My children and I all want to thank you and all Hillier employees for their most outstanding assistance, compassion, and support at a time of great lose for our family. The celebration of life was for us a wonderful program that assisted us in the long journey of healing. Glenn you went above and beyond which is so appreciated b our family. Ken was given a beautiful send off which has helped my family so much. The goldflish, pictures of Ken-panels of Ken's history and the lemon custard ice cream meant so much to me. Thank you for all you did for us.
Dear Glenn and Staff,
Thank you so much for all your help with the fine visitation and funeral we had for Sister St. Anthony. You and your staff were so gracious every step of the way from coming to her apartment, also planning meetings, and the visitation at the funeral home and the mass at St. Anthony's Parish. Thank you too for doing the programs. Finally you sent her off to Sylvania where our leadership met her. We also had a wonderful visitation and funeral for her at our Motherhouse. God bless you and your staff in all you are and do.
With grateful heart and prayers
Dear Ladies & Gentleman:
In February of this year we lost our son, Stacey Stagg. We went to your location in College Station and were served by your employee Kyle J. Incardona. Now that I have had some time to reflect upon the events surrounding my son's passing I am taking the opportunity to thank and praise those whose service achieved the status of outstanding.
Please know that my wife, my daughter-in-law and I sincerely appreciate the wonderful service of your organization, but specifically we appreciate Kyle J. Incardona and his outstanding service to our family. His professionalism, compassion and demeanor epitomize the level of service to which a company like yours should be aspire. Kyle kept us informed and up to date on this difficult situation and it is important to us that you are aware of his quality of service.
Thank you for being there in our time of need.
In all od Daddy's passing, I'm not sure if I properly thanked you and all the Hillier team for all of your support and professionalism. Hillier has been helping my family for generations, so there was no question as to who I trusted Daddy's funeral with. Hillier was outstandingly perfect. Thank you all for what you do, for our family and for our community! Please continue to do what you do as well. You are all needed and appreciated!
Thank you very much for all your help after the recent death of my son. Your kindness helped me cope at the worst time of my life. Sandra Foy
Kyle and associates,
I know it’s been a couple weeks, but I just want to thank you and your team SO MUCH for the outstanding job you guys did with my dad’s funeral arrangements! We were all blown away with the care and attention to detail (and much-needed humor—donuts, anyone?) that you provided during our difficult time. I cannot imagine trying to deal with everything without your help. From the moment we sat down for the planning, we knew that everything would be handled but we had no idea how thoughtful and caring the whole process would be. So many friends and family commented on the wonderful services and we have you to thank. All of the surprises you guys added really helped showcase my dad and his life—I know he would have approved of his celebration!
With blessings and heartfelt appreciation, Kelly Bender
Thank you so much for your help and generosity this past week with William and his event. The speakers, the mic, the music... all helped in making the event memorable. Plus your willingness to be there made me feel much more comfortable in an "uncomfortable" situation. See you soon...
Thank you for everything you did for Jayla Friddle.
Thank you for being someone who shares the light of God's love in so much that you do, and in so many special ways.
Sissy and I especially just wanted to thank you all for everything you did for us. Set up was amazing just like your entire staff. "Untucked" was a fabulous driver, Sasha was spot on with the H2O. Your video-ographer amazing and Ms. High Heel Ashly a pure pleasure to work with. We love all the smiles and laughs at a much needed time. From your prep team to top management you all ROCK!
I just wanted to thank you for all you done for ma and my family at the time of the loss of my husband Michael. We really appreciate you being here for us. God has a special place for people like you. May god bless you now and always!
I work as a social worker (prn) for hospice
brazos valley. recently I was asked to
assist with a spanish speaking only
family who lost their 5 day old baby girl.
this family had a financial barrier and
was not able to find ways to help with
burial plans/cost. I also work full time for
CHI St. Joseph Cancer Center and the
thought of the family not being able to
bury their child was heavy on my heart. I
reached out to Sister Penny who always
provides emotional support and she told
me with no hesitation "call Glenn at
Hillier funeral home in Bryan, he has
always been there to help me and our
community. I did what was suggested
and I have to say really there are no
words to truly describe what Glenn and
Hillier were able to do. He and his staff
exceeded expectations. I shared with
Sister Penny and additional staff at St.
Joseph along with Hospice Brazos Valley
and they too have been amazed and feel
truly blessed to have Glenn and Hillier
funeral home in this community. The
family is overwhelmed with joy and
sorrow, but feel so blessed that they are
able to bury their baby as it should be;
with joy, and peace in their hearts. this
also helped them with closure because
mom had lost a previous child when she
was only 5 months pregnant. she told me
during the memorial service that this
service not only represented this childsdeath but also her 4 child. I can make
peace now. Death is a walk that we all
take alone, with Jesus walking along side
of us. we have family and friends that
come for support, I hope that we can all
say we have a Glenn that we can call on,
count on to help with this process. thank
you again Glenn for everything!
Thank you for all of your help during this difficult situation. You and your staff went above and beyond to ease the pain and responsibility of both Mary and Maurine's funeral. We loved the video tribute and all the extra little touches.
Thank you for all the kind words, sincere respect for our family and beautiful service atmosphere. Everything was just perfect.
Dear Glenn and Hillier staff,
The thoughtful and caring effort that all of you put into our son's Memorial Service on Friday was incredibly comforting to Don and me.
It was the little touches that showed how much time and effort you put into the planning of it-The Route 66 signs and the little trucks added to the standing wreaths, the little personalized touches to the video and the arrangement of Scott's bike and guitar.
Your caring was so incredibly kind and helped us get through on of the worst days of our lives.
We heard many comments from people, most of whom had never met Scott, that the service was the best Memorial/Funeral Service they'd ever attended because it helped them know who Scott had been.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts,
Don and Pam
Dear Glenn, I just wanted to thank you for all you have done for our family. Your attention to detail is impeccable. Everything from the slide show to the flawless décor, and even thinking to have the gelato for our guests- simply amazing! It was all absolutely stunning and just so very wonderful. I know momma would have been quite pleased. Thank you for taking the time to explain all the ins and outs and making sure we understood what you required from us; you made things that much easier on us. Let me tell you I am thankful you do what you do for a living because you excel! I know we can never repay your kindness nor generosity but know that we very much appreciate you! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
Dear Glenn Duhon, Thank you for all you did towards Florence Epperson funeral on 6/13/2017. Job well done! Natalie and Travis did their jobs spot on! I would give them a A+.
Kyle, Just wanted to drop a note to tell you of the outstanding service on Saturday for Jean Laughlin. Glenn, Andrew were excellent and Anita saved the day by leading the songs. She was great! Just wanted you to know.
Thank y'all so much for being so dedicated to what you do , when I came to pick up our beloved James ashe's everyone was so nice,and helpful,
I wanted to let you know how much I appreciate all your efforts toward mom's (Mona Walton's) funeral. Thank you for being so patient during my emotional moments (LoL) and for finding a solution when I wasn't happy. You showed extraordinary patience, compassion, and went several extra miles for us. I deeply thank you and wish you much success.
Hi Glenn, I can't thank you enough for being you. Your unique ways, that God put in you, blessed me so much during the time I spent at Hillier Funeral Home. I am Robert Albanese' daughter. I am the one that you let see my dad before the family viewing. Thank you for the gift of time alone with my dad. Thank you, also, for caring about my food intake. You were right about that. I was able to eat because you allowed me to see my dad and get some of the grief out. I am so glad you chose to play, "It's a Small World". It ended up really blessing my mother and brought relief to her pain. Thank you for that. I will always remember your smile & compassion at this difficult time. May the Lord bless you, Marianne Hodson
To: Glenn & the staff at Hillier Funeral Home Our family wishes to thank you with gratitude for every act of kindness and compassion you showed us, from the small stuff to the big stuff.

You captured the essence of the life of Steve and made it a true celebration. The Swallow Family
Dear Gelnn and Melissa, It's been almost 2 1/2 months since Chuck's memorial. It feels to me like it was yesterday. Thank you for the flowers you sent in his honor.

Blessing to you and your family. -Denise M.
Natalie, A special "Thank you" for the special treatment we received at the burial of Stanley Schrock last Friday. You have such a sweet and caring spirit. God Bless. Love, Pat & Tony
To whom it may concern: I attended Tico Ramirez's funeral on 11/15/2016 and I wanted to "Thank you" for the way it was conducted. It was the most awesome service I've ever been to. ( in 81 years + and I've been to a few) The gentleman who was at the gravesite was so formal and dignified and made all of us mourners, especially the family feel so special! Thanks again, Ross Mancuso Saint Michaela Church Spring, Texas

Dear Mr. Duhon and Hillier Team. Thank you so much for all you did for my family and my father's funeral services after my father passed away. Everything was perfect and couldn't have been planned or presented nicer. I know our father would have been very pleased with how personalized you all made his services. The unscented popcorn and DOTS were a nice touch for the veiwing. The picture collages your team put together were tear jerking. Your teams attention to detail was amazing. I'm personally most grateful you allowed my brothers Misha, Thomas and I to be as involved in the funeral planning process and details as we were. I will never forget the level of professionalism and courtesy you and your team devoted to my family and father's service during this difficult time. You and the Hillier Team made all the difference to us. Thank you for helping us lay our father to rest. Very Respectfully, Joey Fedorchik III
Dear Mr. Duhon, Stephanie and staff at HIllier, Thank youso much for the comforting services you provided for Dr. Fedorchik's funeral. We were overwhelmed bu all of the details needed, but you did a wonderful job with everything: loved the canvasses and collage, music, candles, programs and even the Dots and Jelly Beans were a humorous touch. Many told us it was the nices funeral they had been to. If my husband had been here physically he would have loved it all and felt it was perfect. Thank you for accommodating us with it all. It is sincerely appreciated. The Fedorchik's
My husband, John Only Greer, passed away June 12, 2015. Hillier Funeral Home handled all of our arrangements and did an outstanding, very professional job in every way. The display of my husband's life was beautiful- even maroon and white balloons with personal photo's enlarged and tied to the balloons. They handled the services, both visitation and funeral, with the most comforting and ethical standards. We were treated with the utmost service, as were our guests attending the events. This company is outstanding in every respect, caring and concerned, ethical business practices, and portrays the highest ethical relationship between business and the public. I highly support Hillier Funeral Home.
Thank you so much for going above and beyond! We just wanted to send you personally a quick thank you note for how you treated our deceased mother, Linda Sue Vaughn Crenwelge. You didn't think twice about fulfilling all of our requests concerning our mother. It may have seemed like a strange request to have my mother's fingernails fixed (she was missing a fake nail) and her toenails painted (even though no one would see them), but it was important to us that it was done. You see, our mother was very excited to be a grandmother for the first time and she was throwing me a baby shower on Saturday August 9th. Mom wanted to get her fingernails and toenails filled/painted for the shower. In fact, we had planned to do that on Wednesday August 6th. Unfortunately, our mother never got to get her nails done or attend my baby shower because she passed on August 6th. I cancelled my baby shower. You went above and beyond by giving my mom a full manicure and pedicure for her funeral. I had you even dress her in the outfit she was going to wear to the baby shower (same outfit she wore to my wedding). It meant so much to us that you cared enough to redo her nails on her hands as well as give her that full pedicure. She looked beautiful! Thank you for caring! P.S. my baby was born a few weeks later on August 26th, 2014.
I just wanted to send you a short note of thanks again to your staff for your wonderful care of my mom's funeral on August 30th. I couldn't have asked for anything more. Thanks again!
Thank you so much for your support of St. Joseph Catholic School! God Bless! Thank you for participating in St. Joseph Catholic Schools 27th Annual Golf Classic. Your generous support helps enable students like me to continue enjoying the various programs offered at St. Joseph Catholic School. God Bless.
Staff at Hillier, thank you so much for the beautiful funeral home and cemetary services you provided for our father's funeral. The special touches and deep respect you gave us was heartfelt. Expertly handling the arrangements and guiding us through this difficult time was very much appreciated. Your kind expression of sympathy is deeply appreciated and gratefully ackowledged by the family of Pete J. Scamardo.
Thank you for the excellent services everyone at Hillier Funeral Home provided us during our difficult process of our loss of our beloved (dad, a grandfather and father-in-law). We are very happy with above and beyond service and arrangements. Rest assure we will be recommending your facility and services to others. Again, thank you! Thank you for your utmost services and excellent attention to details and needs. Our family thanks everyone at Hillier Funeral Home.
I wish to "Thank you" for all you did for the Palmer Family. I definitely know it's not easy doing your jobs, but you do it with grace and ease. That's why we chose you all to take care of us in our "final" hours. God Bless You All! Thanks!
Hillier staff, thank you for being so patient and comforting at the time of my parents passing. You really made things alot easier for all of us. It takes strong people to do what y'all do, but it comes so natural to y'all both. Both of the services for our mom & dad were very nice. Once again thank you a million times over. The beautiful poem that was read to us ws so thoughtful and beautiful. "The Dash"
Thank you Tony for the precious memories of the services for my wife Reba. They will remain in my memory for as long as I live. Thank you also for the beautiful flowers.
Finding you at Hillier is proof to me that indeed God has a plan for each of us. Thank you for your
'easy yes' when I asked you to sing for Gus.
Thank you for all your help you gave during our time of loss. The services turned out great, even with the "Milk Cow Blues" song :) You brought great comfort to us all with your sincere attitude and kindness.
I wanted to personally thank you for cooking the brisket for FUMC Bryan last month. I was in Florida at a Conference and missed it, but I heard it was great! Thank you for time and generosity in this service. I appreciate your goodness to our church and community.
Dear Ms. Roop,
Thank you so very much for your caring and professional services as we cared for my dad, Kenneth F. Gruner. Your management of his obituary, death certificate, and other administrative tasks were absolutely flawless. I could not have asked for a more thorough and caring service.
Your help was so important and reassuring. Your help to us at the time of grief was outstanding.
On behalf of our family, I just want to say thank you for arranging such a nice visitation for my mother, Ms. Gladys McCary. We appreciated the kindness, patience, and diligence of both you and your staff. Your assistance during a difficult time helped make things easier as we traveled out of state for the graveside service.
Our family thanks you so very much for all the organization, communitcations, concern shown to each of us by you and your associates at Hillier. We were so glad to know that you also had a beautiful voice. God gifted you with so many talents. Thank you for sharing those with us.
Thank you so much to Sara, you went out of your way to help me get prints of the photos of my brother, Robert Shannon. He was so very special, and I will treasure these pictures. God bless you for your kindness.
Thank you for being with my family during an emotional time. We appreciate your assistance in preparing the arrangments for the funeral and the burial. We thank you for keeping everything in order and following our wishes. We were very content with the services we received and will highly recommend the funeral home to friends and family when the need arrives.
Thank you so much for the beautiful job you did on mama's visitation, services, and ALL the unique extras! SHe epecially would've TOTALLY loved it! You all made a very challenging time so warm and filled with new memories!
We want to thank you for doing such a great job! Please thank Ashley for an outstanding display and video, knowing what little she ha to work with. The compassion you showed to me and my family did not go unnoticed. And last, but not least, thank you for being aware and attentive to my needs and wishes with out a word having to be said.
Our family cannot thank you enough for creating such a beautiful funeral for CHuck. We could not have asked for more. I'm sure that Chuck was looking down from Heaven with a sweet smile on his facce and a twinkle in his blue eyes. Glenn, you and you staff went "above and beyond" to make this a very special funeral. Our family and friends were overcome with the elegance and sweetness of the visitation at Hillier and the funeral at First Baptist Church. You were amazing in how you handled so many details so efficiently. THe military portion of the funeral was spectacular and we give you credit for coordinating all of it. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. With great admiration and respect, Lee
Thank you so much for the beautiful flowers.
Thank you for the beautiful flower arrangement. I love it! If you will look toward Heaven, you will see Chuck, with a twinkle in his sky-blue eyes and a sweet smile on his face in gratitude.I cannot thank you enough for the lovely visitation and church service. Many friends and family have said that they have never been to a sweeter or more touching service.
I would like to thank y ou all for everything you have done for our family in this stressful situation. With all the questions and concerns, you all have helped us tremendously. Such a blessing to our family which I would hope you all would understand without you alls help, we wouldn't be able to finalize our father's life.
I just wanted to say thank you for all your help with my mother-in-law's cremation arrangements and urn. I am sorry it was such a rush and for all the questions you so patiently answered. It was a very nice service and I believe that we are all at peace with her passing. The pastor did a wonderful job with the service. Thank you again for your service.
Thank you so kindly for the beautiful flower arrangement your company sent me today. It was so comforting to know that your staff is so encouraging.
Glenn, Thank you so much for making the Easley memorial beautiful and well managed. We both appreciate it very much. Take care and God Bless!
Thank you for everything you did for our family after our precious Max passed away. There are few things sadder than planning a visitation, funeral, and burial of your child, but you all made the process as painless as you could. We felt so well taken care of by all of the Hillier team. We are thankful that you are called to this difficult but important work.
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.
