I didn’t realize, despite all the times I’ve gone to this site to read obituaries and to leave tributes, that I could leave a tribute to this wonderful funeral home. I Would’ve done it much sooner. I can’t emphasize enough how beautifully they handled my Father Val Eddy‘s jazz funeral at the funeral home he chose himself. Melinda is an angel from Heaven and Frank “Chico” DeCastris was so helpful to me and handled his cousin Val so gently and capably. We were in such good hands there. Melinda helped me plan for the musicians that jammed in honor of my Dad and so many other details. And when I buried Dad’s pianist of 50 years, who was family to us and was a difficult situation because of Homer’s circumstances, the funeral home was so compassionate and caring and once again Melinda took care of so many details and helped me so much. There simply is no better funeral home in our area. We wouldn’t go anywhere else, truly. They are the very best bar none. Thank you again!

2 months ago I lost my 19 year old son. I have never had to plan a funeral. I chose Fitzgeralds on Mulford because of their on site crematory. I didn't want to have him sent away. The staff was more than I could have wished for especially Ryan Schoaf. I didn't have to worry about anything. They took care of everything. I trusted them completely. I highly recommend them.

It's coming up 2 years since I lost my beautiful wife. Fitzgerald went over and above my families expectations! Melinda & Shawn were outstanding! Every single person we had contact with including Pat, Rick, & Delinda were amazing! In my opinion as a life long Rockford resident, NO ONE has the compassion and the quality of service that Fitzgerald's showed me and my family in our time of need! Our family is a customer for life and so should you and your family Too. Cudio's to Tom and his amazing staff!!
