  • Justin and Roxanne Herman of Taylor Mortuary (now Herman-Taylor Funeral Home) are extremely kind and caring people. They are getting very good remarks from the community, due to the nice things they do "outside the box." It is refreshing to see and be part of this type of activity and hear the positive comments people have made. Our personal experience was absolutely without fault. The death occurred December 20th and they were able to totally put together the most beautiful service for us on December 23rd. No Christmas rush was evident; only kind, caring attention to our needs. (They had several services that week in addition to ours). They are a wonderful to our area and are serving it well. They followed in the footsteps of well-known funeral directors and have lived up to the usual standards. I have nothing negative to offer about them.

  • I was planning on having my own funeral at the catholic funeral home, but have now changed my own plans. They are wonderful at Herman-Taylor Funeral Home. My husband passed away, out of town, and everything was handled for me. The staff makes you feel comfortable. The visitation room was wonderfully laid out and the lunch room was GREAT!
