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.

The service for my father, Jerry Masdon, was exceptional. They were very responsible from the very beginning to the end. Every detail we asked for was taken care of- from the video to the military honor guard. My father's family has always used Hillcrest from my grandparents on. In fact I have a special bond with Hillcrest in the fact that my grandfather used to repair their vehicles and I would test drive them with him. I highly recommend them.

Thank you, Justin Grubbs and Joe Wilson, and your staff for being extremely accommodating, professional and compassionate from the time of our lovely daughter's sudden passing, to your patience in guiding and assisting us in arrangement details, to the absolutely lovely memorial service at your beautiful funeral home. You and your staff are exemplary, and have exceeded all our expectations.
We highly recommend Higgins Hillcrest Chapel.

Joe Wilson & the entire team could not have been any more wonderful, caring and efficient. I went into the funeral home prior to my husband's death to prepare some of the arrangements. Everything was handled beautifully and with respect. Joe was attentive and thorough. He was very honest about expenses, and things that he thought were not a good use of money. This was not a "no-frills" funeral home, but they didn't nickel and dime me over details. I could not ask for any better of a send-off for my husband; the facility and the people were wonderful! I highly recommend them for your loved one, and encourage folks to have conversations with loved ones so they know your wishes. Joe & his team will guide you through this very difficult process. Thank you Joe, I will forever be in your debt for all you did for our family.

Dear Joe, It may have been your job but I didn't get that feeling. I felt the genuine concern, care, and compassion for myself and my family as we dealt with the unexpected loss of Lewis. I truly appreciate your patience and you making sure that his wishes were followed. I felt completely sure and safe that I was listened to and my voice was heard. You were beyond gracious and helpful explaining and going over the many forms and paperwork that I didn't realize I would need. Newnan is blessed to have Hillcrest and Hillcrest is truly most blessed to have you.

Dear Joe & Justin,
Words could never express how grateful we are for your support and guidance. This is a long overdue note, but I wanted you both to know how much we appreciate you and your team going above and beyond taking care of dad. Thank you both for being so compassionate as I navigated through uncharted waters with dad's passing. Thank you both so much for taking the time to help us make the arrangements. Y'all took the worry out of a sad and stressful time. Many thanks again for doing what you do so well!
Sincerely, Patrice

Our heartfelt thanks goes out to Joe Wilson, Terry Calhoun, Ken Austin, and Anthony Grant for how they combined their top-notch professionalism with sincere compassion for us. Having them walk with us as we approached and arrived at the moment of saying goodbye to our sweet mother was a source of tremendous comfort and support, and every step of her final journey was handled flawlessly. We knew we - and our Mom - would be in good hands from that first phone call to Higgins, to driving up to such an exquisitely beautiful building, through our planning consultation with Joe. He went over details we had not thought of, and responded to follow-up questions promptly. The pricing was well below what we had anticipated, but definitely without any reduction in quality. We are profoundly grateful for their service, and recommend them highly.

In my time of grief & pain of loosing my mother - joe (owner) met me at the front door of the funeral home - from that moment on he made me feel like family - they did a wonderful job of preparing my mom for the viewing - I especially liked the way her hair was done - the staff at Hillcrest were so kind & humble to our family - they fully understood our sadness on that day - joe picked out a song by Alan Jackson
(amazing grace) to b played at the end of the service - that was the perfect choice for us - we can't thank them enough for the wonderful service that Joe & the staff at Hillcrest gave us that day Sincerely the Henderson family

These guys are the absolute best.
So much compassion and professionalism. When my daddy passed in early January my mom wanted an evening viewing and service then the graveside next late morning and they made it happen.
Another well-known funeral home wasn’t willing to accommodate our requests and boy are we sure glad they didn’t.
Service was beautiful, the guys gave us and Dad the utmost respect and it was appreciated.
Thank you Rev. Terry Calhoun, Joe and Ted.
We couldn’t have asked for a better outcome, considering the circumstances.
Thank you again.

Hillcrest Chapel is a top of the line funeral home. After another well known funeral home refused to accommodate my service arrangements, Hillcrest had no hesitation at all. They went out of their way to accommodate the unique way I requested to have our arrangements for my precious husband. While being highly skilled and professional, we still felt their down home warmth and caring. They handled my sweetheart with the utmost respect and honor while preserving his dignity.
Pricing was the most affordable I found and service was in no way sacrificed for cost.
I highly recommend Hillcrest and will be forever grateful for their participation in the most peaceful transition we could have ever hoped for.

I have used Higgins Hillcrest twice and they were absolutely amazing. Money driven they are not. They are a family owned business. They are gracious, charming and professional!


Very helpful and considerable with helping us with our daughter's final wish to be cremated. We will miss Charity Michelle Kelly Murrell very much and love her always. 43 years old. Cancer, such a terrible thing !!! Thank you so much for your kindness and efforts !!!


On behalf of the Hayes family we would like to express our heartfelt gratitude to the Higgings funeral home. My father in law, Mr. Robert Hayes Sr was laid to rest today and Higgings went above and beyond to make sure that the family honored his life in the most profound way. We cannot thank you enough for making this a smooth process during our time of grief.
The staff was professional, kind, courteous and compassionate...
I highly recommend Higgings Hillcrest Chapel.
