Our family cannot thank Heritage enough for all the help they gave at the passing of Douglas Sisemore. They treated us like family from start to finish. Everything was just beautiful and we did not have to worry about anything. Our director, Travis Lindsay could not have been more helpful with all the arrangements at the funeral home, church and especially getting us into the National Cemetery so quickly. He helped us file all of the insurance as well. Heritage was such a blessing to our family and we could not have been more pleased with everything.

Heritage Funeral Home has been so wonderful to my family for many years. They handled my father's funeral when I was only 12 years old and while it was such a difficult time for my family, Heritage found ways to help make it a little easier. Years later, my grandmother and grandfather's funerals were both held at Heritage and once again we were not let down. Most recent was my step father'd funeral in which Curtis did an exceptional job with. He went above and beyond to honor Carlos and to provide much needed support for our family We are blessed to have such a caring funeral home in our city.

Thank you to all of you at Heritage-East Brainerd Chapel for making the worse time of my life so much easier to deal with.

I am so grateful to have had the staff assist my family during the most difficult time imaginable when my daughter recently passed away. Curtis you were perceptive enough to realize the depth of our grief, providing comfort, and guidance in planning her funeral service. When I was so overcome with grief that I thought my legs would buckle walking down the isle of the chapel for her funeral, you took my arm to support me, doing so in such a dignified manner that no one in the chapel was aware that you were literally holding me up. You read the situation and immediately took action - and for that I as so grateful. I was such an emotional mess that I was simply incapable of making some decisions regarding such things as visitation hours, and pallbearers, but you and your staff simply worked behind the scene and pulled all the loose ends together making for a very beautiful, thoughtful, and compassionate experience. My family thank you and your staff for all that you did for us at a time when we were literally reeling with grief. Heritage made all the difference.

I want to thank each staff member at Heritage for making us feel like family. The care ad concern the team showed during our loss helped us relax and actually enjoy time with family and friends. My dad remarked several times how the visitation and service ran seamlessly. The attention to detail the team provided eased our burden, which in turn, eased our lives. I especially appreciate two aspects of the team; the laughter and the love. My family enjoys life and loves to laugh.
Loosing a loved one is never easy, but the atmosphere at Heritage-East Brainerd Chapel eased our pain and unburdened our lives. I am grateful to have shared my mom with you, Thank you for you services and your love.

Heritage Funeral Home, no matter what their position, far exceeded my expectations in what services they offered. Every member of their staff met every need with care and compassion.
With the professional advice and guidance of Curtis Ottinger, the details of my husbands visitation, funeral and burial fell into place.
I could not have been more pleased with the result and could easily say "NO REGRETS". To Mr. Ottinger and his staff, I shall be eternally grateful.
It is now so easy to see why the East Brainerd Chapel of Heritage Funeral Home has been voted "The Best of the Best" for the past 15 years.

There are no words to describe how wonderful Curtis and his staff took such good care of our family in the sudden loss of our Aunt Billie. She would have been proud . She said several years ago when it was her time to leave, she wanted no-one but Curtis Ottinger to take care of her. The love and kindness shown to our family was extremely valuable during this time. They serve with respect and professionalism.
