Dear R J. It's just a year since my dear Mort passed and it has been the hardest year of my life. This week all the memories came flooding back and as they did I remembered just how much you helped me with all the arrangements, information and planning at his passing. I recall that, I never truly thanked you for spending whatever time I needed in planning his memorial and in giving me some personal time when I became overwhelmed with it. So thank you from the bottom of my heart for all your kindnesses to me and my family. Also thanks to your Staff who were so quietly efficient and caring during that sad time, they are the best.
Hi Roger, I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for your support when my father passed away in 2017. Even though you were in Florida, it felt like you were right there with us. I know my mom really appreciated it as well. A big thank you from the Fitzgerald Family! I hope you have a great Thanksgiving. Cheers
I would like to thank Steve Morehead for helping my family plan my mother Emily Stevens funeral. He showed compassion and and was very accommodating with our wishes for my mother. Everyone at Sharp's funeral home was very kind, from meeting us at the door with a handshake to making sure all of our needs were met. Thank you so much again. The family of Emily Stevens
Hi Mike, We wanted to say thank you for taking such good care of us. Everyone appreciated having the link available to view the service. (Especially family in Italy) Also, thank you for providing pick up service for us from the airport. Above and beyond and so helpful. Your caring and professional ways sure make this difficult time easier. Tell Jen hi and to have fun with your twins. Thanks again!
My family and I were extremely happy with the wonderful service with Sharp Funeral Home and their outstanding staff.
Our family has been dealing with Sharp family and associates for over 50 years and they've always been a blessing. I thank you all.
Entire staff at the Swartz Creek location were caring & helpful. Special thanks to Jennifer and Michael for fulfilling particular requests, from me personally
I would like to thank the staff for helping me carry out my mother's wishes. She only wanted to be cremated with no service, and I was very happy that I was not pressured to do any more. Everyone was very caring towards my feelings.
Hi Stephanie I cannot even begin to thank all of you for your compassionate and high level of professional help as we prepared services for my mom. I remember when my dad died, it was the same way. Your family does an extraordinary job of helping families through a very difficult time. Your entire team is to be commended for your remarkable level of service! Please let me know if there is anything else that you need us to do. As you can tell, we have been dividing tasks along the way but I am happy to remain your point of contact to forward information where it needs to go. With Sincere Gratitude
Sharp Funeral Home and Staff Thank you so much for the outstanding job and support during the viewing and funeral of Delores. Your attention to detail and attentive staff made this time of loss and sorrow much easier for our family.
Just a big Thank You to Julie, Stephanie, Michael, who so professionally helped me with the services for Richard and Rhonda. Also special thanks to Ann and Denise for the paperwork they did. You will be kindly remembered.
Dear Mike We wanted to thank you for helping us to give our dad the perfect tribute! You and the staff of Linden Chapel did him proud! Your compassion and caring at the house was appreciated by all of us, as was the personal touch at the cemetery! Thank you and God bless!
Dear Stephanie and Staff of Sharp Funeral Homes Thank you for your time and detail to Bill's arrangements at Sharp. We are truly blessed to have you all by our side.
Dear Roger and Family Thank you so much for making this difficult time much more bearable. Your help and support and your caring manner you gave to us during both of our parents' funerals was so much appreciated. You made us feel like family. Your compassion and sympathy helped us get through a very difficult time in our lives. If we could call funerals beautiful, then that is what I would call my mother's and father's funerals. I think both of them would be happy that we were able to show how special they were to us. Your job may be one where you have to deal with death and grief daily, but please know that you and your family do a wonderful job giving peace of mind to the family left behind. You do it with love and it shows! Thank you for helping us give our parents the best "send-off" that we could give them. We miss mom and dad so much. I keep trying to remember my mom's words, Life is good!
Dear Stephanie We want to thank you for your kind and competent assistance with our mother's funeral. Everything was done to our total satisfaction. I know that Mom would have been pleased. Thanks for making such a difficult time easier for our entire family.
To the Staff at Sharp Funeral Home I wanted to express my sincere thanks for the wonderful way you handled the funeral for my husband George. My family and I could not have been happier.
Dear R.J. and Staff Thank you for the wonderful care you took of Mom. The funeral was perfect…she would have been pleased. Your professionalism and kindness made it easier for us to focus on the great life that Mom lived to honor her wishes right to the very end.
Dear Roger Mike and Jenny and everyone else I may have left out. I can't thank you enough for your kindness and loving care during my darkest hours. Thank you for the special flower Roger. Forever grateful.
Thank you for your understanding and sympathy during our Family loss. The young lady, Rachel, was most helpful in answering our questions and any needs that came up. Her kind words of assurance helped so much during our time of grief. Appreciation and thanks to Dale for his professional manner in planning the funeral arrangements. Our experience with Sharp Funeral Homes will definitely be shared with others.
Mr. Sharp, I am writing to express my appreciation for the manner in which my father’s funeral services were handled by Sharp Funeral Homes – especially Steve Morehead. I was stressed, grieving and intimidated when walking in those doors to plan my father’s funeral service. Steve was warm, considerate and friendly without being ‘stiff and overly polite.’ He never once tried to ‘sell’ me anything. His entire demeanor relaxed my sister and me immediately. He ‘got’ how much the service (which I created into a tribute) meant to me and he made every single detail come to fruition. It was not a typical service and Steve just took it in stride and made it happen. He went above and beyond at no extra charge and I will be forever grateful. I also would like to acknowledge my appreciation for the young lady who created our customized Michigan folders and thank you cards. They were a huge part of making the tribute personal and meaningful to us and she did an excellent job. I have had no less than 50 people tell me it was the most meaningful and heartening service they had ever attended and the staff at Swartz Creek made it happen. I simply cannot express how thrilled I was with their efforts. I have no doubts that you and your staff already realize what a gem Hank Messing is. I think Steve understood that Hank was our guy after I explained to him our needs. No one could have delivered that tribute better than Mr. Messing. He is brilliant and again, I am so grateful to Steve for leading us to him. Surely you realize the kind of employee you have in Steve and let me just say that whatever you are paying him – it can’t be enough. I will forever be grateful to him!
Thank you so much. We were well pleased with all of the different services your group offered us and with the service as a whole. Thank you for making everything so easy.
I have planned funerals in the past for family, but Sharp Funeral Homes has been outstanding. From the professional men that were so kind in picking up the body. They explained everything they were going to do, and gave us all the time we needed to say our goodbyes. Delivering the flowers to my home and the follow-ups to see if I needed grief counseling or any help. Ann’s help with Social Security and insurance companies was priceless. She was so helpful and offered to help any time in the future. No other funeral home has ever done that service for me before. Last but not least, Roger Sharp Sr. is such a wonderful, generous man. I will always remember his comforting words. For those reasons, and many more, I knew I wanted to make my prearrangements for my own funeral with Sharp Funeral Homes.
You catered to our every need. Dressed professionally, you conducted yourselves with utmost respect, yet were eager to help assure that our service would be stress free. Jennifer Sharp Scully is phenomenal in the capacity in which she serves.
Thank you for all of your patience, compassion, and thoughtfulness you showed in our time of need. Also, for the extra special touches you allowed for us to make this day personal to us.
To the Staff at Sharp Funeral Home, There are no words to express how appreciative that my children and I felt comforted by all of you when my husband unexpectedly was killed in a car accident. Your professionalism and empathy is one that should be a model for all funeral homes. We can’t thank you enough for everything that you did to make his service the absolute beautiful tribute that he deserved.
I can’t believe the services that you provided, specifically coordinating the funeral with the church, the community room, aftercare, and delivery of flowers. The staff was wonderful throughout the entire process and we have never gotten this kind of personal attention in the large funeral homes. Everyone who viewed my husband couldn’t believe how good he looked after suffering with cancer for an extended period. It was very comforting for the entire family.
I was extremely impressed with how you handled the details of my mother’s death. She passed away on January 24, 2012. I had been in to see you, Jennifer, on January 20, 2012 to make burial arrangements. When you contacted me on the morning of January 24, you swiftly coordinated details with the burial site per my request for January 25, 2012. When the family arrived at the mausoleum, the hearse was already there with the open casket ready for viewing. Your representative was professional in all areas: dress, manner, respect, and patience. I was very pleased with the pamphlet distributed to us; the rose decorations on the cover and the God’s Garden poem - which you picked out - were perfect for my mother’s circumstances. Also, my mother looked beautiful and at rest. The efficiency and professionalism of the Sharp Funeral Chapel in Fenton was duly noted by me, and I have shared my impressions with many people.
Dear RJ, It’s hard to find the words to properly thank you for all your team did to help us during such an emotional and vulnerable time. From the first moment we walked into Sharp Funeral Homes, we felt compassion and familiarity. Everyone seemed to embrace our needs and want to help us through the process. We truly appreciated your guidance, approachability, and patience. Thank you for all the preparation you did before our initial meeting and most importantly, for giving us the time we needed with my grandmother. I will forever appreciate you recognizing when to take the lead and when to give us time to sort things out. Additionally, thank you to the rest of the team who worked with us. Everyone, whether in person or over the phone, consistently provided an exceptional level of service. Julie promptly and thoroughly helped with any questions whenever I called. She always returned calls as promised with whatever information was needed. Betty’s professional, helpful, and caring demeanor was just what we needed when we walked in the door. Steve and Ed attentively and calmly helped with everything on the day of the services. A special thanks for connecting us with Hank Messner. It was truly a blessing having him preside over the services. What an amazing person! Thank you again for the exemplary customer service –for taking care of the details, for following up after the services, and for being engaged in our process. We really appreciated and enjoyed working with your team. It was definitely the right fit for our family.
RJ and Staff, I wanted to let you all know how much I appreciate all you did for us during this time. Your kindness, empathy, and understanding made things much easier for us. As always, Sharp Funeral Home gave us very high quality of service, as no other home can do. Again, thank you so very much for everything.
Jennifer, Mike, Roger, Stephanie, RJ and the entire Sharp Family, We want to express our deep appreciation for all you did to get us through this most difficult time. Our father was a great man who deserved a great tribute. Your help with planning of his funeral was wonderful. It was very comforting to have the family consultation with you. It helped us feel assured that everything would be as it should be and we could concentrate on greeting our guests and supporting each other. The picture video that was created was very special. We have shared it with many family members who were out of town during the services – they really enjoyed it – it will be a special memento for all of us. Thank you also for making the arrangements for the military service at the cemetery – it was quite remarkable and Dad would have been proud. We were all touched by your many kindnesses. We can’t thank you enough and we will not forget how you helped us. The blanket was beautiful. It is something we will cherish for years to come. Thank you so much for making such a difficult time in our lives a little easier. All of the staff is very kind and caring. I also appreciate the organization and attention to detail.
Our family would like to express our gratitude for your entire staff for your outstanding service and thoughtfulness. Your kindness and caring really helped us all during this difficult time.
Thank you for all your hard work and attention to detail during a very difficult time. Our days with you were very special as we celebrated a man we loved very much. Julie, thank you for going above and beyond
To all staff, Your professionalism was a comfort to us all during the loss of Fred, Thank you for all you did for us.
Dear Sharp Funeral Home Staff, God bless all of you for the wonderful attention and service of care you gave to our family at the passing and home going care and services for our dad/grandpa. You blessed us so much. And a special big thank you to Jennifer for the gifting of the beautifully designed throw that so represented my dad’s life and family. We will treasure it always. Each and every one of you took such time and care. Thank you so much.
Mr. Sharp and Staff, Words cannot express our appreciation for the good service you provided during the loss of our dear husband, father and grandfather. Everyone was so nice and helpful, even when we stayed awhile after visiting hours were over. Thank you again. God bless all of you!
Sharp Funeral Home Staff, Thank you for all you did for us before, during and after Mom’s funeral. All the little things that are done, that go unnoticed by most, are so very much appreciated. Your attention to detail is superb. Mom looked so beautiful. So many people remarked on it. Rog - You have a great family and staff.
Dear Jenny, John and I spoke with your dad in July for preliminary planning and were also helped by other members of your family and your staff. My daughters, AnnMarie and Janet, and I would like to thank you personally for your gentle and professional manner. Your precise answers and recommendations and your awareness of our responses were very appropriate for us. Your attention to the veteran’s service with the accompanying bugler, relaying flower arrangements and the lovely room were all very much appreciated.
To All: Sharp Funeral Home, My thankfulness is so greatly late but most sincere. My heartfelt thanks to all who helped with Mom’s funeral - prior, during and after. True kindness and caring was felt by me. Mom looked so nice. I felt at ease and blessed. The afghan photo, a true surprise and the theme perfect – “awesome.” How special too that Mr. Sharp attends graveside service. Sharps – a special place in a sorrowful time of need and most accommodating in all our needs. Again, my heartfelt thanks.
Dear Rodger, Your Son and your Son in Law carried the Sharp Funeral Home Care to a level I have not seen before. I stopped by to pay respect to Michael's honor as a fine man I did not really expect that Michael Scully would usher me into his office and that you would pop out and instruct your staff to allow my long time Friend, Jack Bethke's wish to allow us to guard the casket; but why am I not surprised? RJ handled the closing of the casket and lining Jack and I up in such a way that a saddened Father and his Friend could fully participate in the fine high Mass that our new priest and the Reuthers asked God to allow. Keep up the good work. Your Friend in Admiration,
Dear Jennifer, So sorry for this late reply. I have been back for over a week now and still adjusting to the + 12 hour-time zone. Thank you very much for keeping in touch. You cannot imagine the joy with perplexity I experienced when Nanette and I arrived from Japan on the same night contrary to expectations. Upon deplaning in Manila, I got word that she was already with her family, my nephews, en route to the parlor! That was exhilarating, advancing plans by a day ahead. The boys were extremely happy to finally be with her and see their Mom still beautiful and unblemished! Impressed were they to say the least. She looked great. More importantly we know that she is now in peace in the loving arms of our Creator! We wish to express to you our heartfelt appreciation for all the care and support you have extended to us during this very difficult time of losing our loved one. Everything went very well from start to finish. We hope and pray for your business's continued success in the future. Keep the warmth from the heart! Again, many thanks, best regards and God bless.
Dear Roger, Zach and I would like to thank you for all you did for us during the recent death of Greg, Everything was perfect and your staff was wonderful, especially RJ, what a comfort he was and so very helpful. Words cannot begin to express how truly grateful we are for your very generous price for Greg’s funeral. I know Greg would have been deeply touched by your generosity towards his family. I know he thought a lot of you and was often reminded of better days when you and his father would duck hunt together. Greg’s family has seen lots of hard times but their faith in Christ has always carried them through, just as it is now for Zach and me. We really don’t know how we could have gotten through these past months without the help and generosity of family and friends such as yourself. I am sorry that we could not see you during the time of Greg’s funeral because of your need to rest and recoup from your recent health issues. Just know that we are praying for your full and complete return to good health. Thanks again, Roger, your love and concern will never be forgotten…. God’s Blessings,
Dear Mr. Sharp, Thank you so much for taking the time to be at Rod’s memorial and taking care of so many details and the extra special things you did. I was honored that you were there since that all went well and it did. Thank you again from my family and me. Please thank your staff for their help and kindness. God Bless All!
The McHugh Family would like to thank everyone at Sharp Funeral Homes. They could not get over how customer orientated we are. Everything they thought of we had already taken care of. They wanted to thank Jenny of her caring. Mrs, McHugh thought Roger was delightful. They could not praise us enough and all stated they wanted to use Sharp Funeral Homes again. The family had an extremely tough year, and did not know what to do when their son/brother died and we helped pick them up and make the process smooth and enjoyable for the circumstances.
Dear Roger, Thank you so much for the kindness and generosity you showed to our family. Your staff is outstanding, Jenni and Matt were so considerate. Enjoy a dinner with your family
July 4, 1776 was the historic day when the Continental Congress approved the Declaration of Independence. Every year, Americans rejoice and celebrate Independence Day, or the 4th of July, with great fanfare. Amidst colorful parades, flag hoisting ceremonies, and barbecue parties, Americans remember the suffering their forefathers endured to win them precious freedom, This nation will remain the land of the free only so long as it is the home of the brave. And for that, we say Thank You.
Extra "Thank you"! You are a very special man in our hearts. Thank you,

Dear Roger and Family and Staff in Swartz Creek, Thanks so much for the cute wreath and for easing our lives with your expertise. You made everything flow so nicely and efficiently. We really appreciated you guys. The trifold pamphlets were gorgeous and totally matched mom’s flowers, dress, and these notes! Thank you for helping us.
Dear Sharp Family and Staff, It is hard to put into words what we feel about all that was done for us. The flowers, food, and love that will never be forgotten. Kaygie would have approved of the hair color and make-up.
To the Staff of Sharp’s- Words can never truly express how much your kindness, compassion, friendliness and over all caring was given to us at the most difficult of times. Thank you for everything that was done to give our father the honors he deserved. God bless!
We would like to thank all of the staff at Sharps. We were so pleased with the way everything was handled, from the "coziness" of the room, to the flowers being ordered for us. The cemetery ceremony was so beautiful, something we will not forget. Again, thank you and we will recommend you to anyone!
I personally want to express my gratitude and appreciation to each and everyone of the staff members Jennifer, David, Ann, Denise and the many others of you whom seriously made such a difficult time such an ease for my mother, myself, and my family. Exceeding expectations! Not one person at any time said, "No!" but not said "Yes!" was able to go above the requests. I again cannot express my appreciation enough! Thank you all so very much! *The after care for my mother has totally blown me away! Thank you thank you thank you
Just a big thank you to Julie-Stephanie-Michael who- so professionally helped me with the services for Richard and Rhonda. Also a special thanks to Ann and Denise for the paper work they did. You will be highly recommended!
We would like to thank you for taking care of our family in need. We appreciate all your help. The death of my husband was really personal and so much grief involved. Thank you and your staff.
Dear Michael, Our sincere thank you for the excellent service you gave us during such a stressful time. The entire family feels that you and your entire staff were very helpful and did an outstanding job. The entire staff helped lighten the load for our family. The DVD was done beautifully. The memorial candle will be special to us for many years. We plan to light it every 4th of July in Steve’s memory. All your special touches were greatly appreciated.
Dear Roger, You have done so much to help our family there is no way to mention them all. Please know that all of them have helped us in so many ways. This by far has been our hardest trial in life and to have you and your entire family and staff be so kind and caring has meant the world to us. Forever in your debt. God Bless you Love,
Dear Roger, I just want to thank you so much for taking such good care of my mom. Your staff was wonderful and so helpful. Thank you again! Sincerely,
Roger- Thanks for the flowers and thanks for upgrading the casket spray. What can I say? Everything was perfect! You really are a great friend and a top notch funeral director. Your son is very good as well!
Dear Roger, I just want you to know that your family and staff treated me and my family with the upmost respect. We couldn’t have asked for any better treatment. It’s awesome who God puts in your life in times like this. Bob will be terribly missed, but he would have really been proud of the way that your family treated him and us. He’s in heaven asking Jesus to bless all of you. Thank you again for making our lives a little easier.
Thank you so much for the loving care you gave my mother and for all the information and help you gave us at a difficult time. You made it so much easier to do what needed to be done. Thank you again!
To the Staff- Thank you so much for making the loss of our dad so much easier. The kindness and understanding you showed our mother and the rest of us was so special. Mike took such good care of us. Everything was above and beyond all our expectations. Thank you so much for everything! In Christian Love
Roger and Staff- Thank you for such a great service and respect during my mother’s funeral. Your staff was a true class act- truly appreciated.
You have my deepest appreciation for your comforting presence and gentle guidance at the memorial service of my father. Your representative was reassuring and guided me with care through the process. Everything was done in a way that would have been pleasing to my dad. You have helped to create a beautiful final memory of Brad for his family and friends that attended. Thank you
Dear Roger and Staff- Thank you for everything you did- above and beyond!- to give my mom a beautiful funeral. I know we are not always the easiest to work with and you were kind, supportive, and professional. Many thanks!

Thank you for everything! Steve would have been happy knowing this service for him from all of you! Steve enjoyed potato soup also!
Roger, Words could never express how grateful I am for everything you and your staff did for us. Thank you so much!
To Whom It May Concern: My lifelong boss, mentor, and friend once told me that if you are impressed with someone, not only tell them, but also tell his or her boss. Therefore, I just wanted to take the time to express in writing how impressed I was with Cheryl. Her professionalism and knowledge during my appointment was outstanding. She addressed all of my concerns, and advised me of several options I was unaware of and took extra time to allow me to decide. She is truly an asset to your staff and I will definitely recommend your services to family and friends. Thank you. Respectfully submitted
Dear Jennifer----- Dear Julie, Each time we meet it seems I have only a two word vocabulary "thank you." Being somewhat familiar with funeral preparation and execution, I can tell you and your staff were exemplary and perfection. Here it comes again= Thank you- for everything. Warm hugs,
Thank you all so very much for making a difficult situation more bearable.
Roger, Matt, and Entire Staff, Thank you for your impeccable service. Every need was taken care of and every one of the staff was extremely courteous.
Thank you all for treating us like family at this difficult time. You were amazing. Everything was perfect. You were more than willing to do everything we asked. I can’t thank you enough. We will never forget your kindness.
Jennifer, Thank you so much for making such a stressful time so much easier for us. You and your staff went above and beyond anything we could have imagined in handling the dinner after mom’s service.
Dear Jennifer, Thank you for your kindness, guidance, and support in handling the arrangements for my father’s cremation. You brought comfort to my mother in a range of ways difficult to count, but easy to appreciate. From the container to the plaque with what we wanted said, was perfect. It takes special people to do what you do and you certainly do it with style and professionalism.
Jennifer and Staff, Thank you so much for the help with the passing of my mother. Your help was greatly appreciated.
Sharps Funeral Home Staff, Thank you for everything you did for us! The Funeral Home staff were so helpful and kind. Everything was beautiful. We appreciated you all more than words can say. Your help with the funeral costs was such a blessing to us. We don’t know what we would have done without it. Losing our sweet Dylan was so heart breaking. You helped make it bearable! From the bottom of our hearts, Kim and Robyn and Jesse God Bless
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.
