A Letter to My
Community Family,

At Thompson Funeral Homes, we are completely community centered. We pride ourselves on being the only provider in the area with a staff dedicated to community outreach. We support many churches, charities and civic organizations, and many of our programs are free of charge.

We are also proud to support our Veterans in the most unique way. With the Tattered Flag Program and the Honor and Glory Funeral Coach, no other funeral home in the Midlands can equal our level of service to Veterans.

Our friendly and caring staff will provide your family with extraordinary service. With a long standing reputation for excellence, our goal is to assist you in creating a meaningful celebration that honors your loved one. We understand that no two families are the same, and therefore the needs and funeral services for each family are not the same. Our ShareLife experience will leave you with memories of your loved one that will never be forgotten, with catered receptions and services that capture your loved one’s story with sights, sounds and even scents.

We understand making final arrangements can be extremely stressful and we are here to ease your burden. I invite you to stop by one of our three convenient locations to see what makes Thompson Funeral Homes different.
