What a gift it was to work with Wilks Funeral Home several years ago as we pre-planned my mother's arrangements for her funeral. When the time came that she passed, from their first arrival at the care center, we felt such peace knowing that she would be taken care of in the best way. Through last minute decisions, final plans for services in Idaho and Montana, their service, knowledge and kindness were amazing. We will always be grateful for Wilks help during this bitter-sweet time. We would recommend you to others in this situation. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts...

We are so humble for the services that Wilks Funeral Home did for our grandbaby that was still born. It is so wonderful to know that there are still people and businesses with humanity. Thanks again for taking care of baby Easton Jase Adams. I would recommend you to anyone. Thank You again.

If I lived in Idaho, I would make an appointment today, to make arrangements for my own funeral with Wilks Funeral Home! We just went through the loss and funeral services for our mother this December and our father passed away 4 years ago. But through my Father's good planning and Wilks' excellent service, Everything was handled in an efficient and professional manner. Our parents had made all their decisions about what services they wanted and at what price. Everything was taken care of, which relieved so much burden and conflict for us children. Wilks Funeral Home and Director Brock Wilks did an exceptional job at honoring our parent's wishes and I know they would be pleased. I wish that I lived in Idaho so that I could take care of this important task for my children.

My husband and I would like to personally thank all of you for the loving care you gave to my sweet Dad, Harry Crain. Everything turned out perfect. You all were so very kind to my mom with all of her questions and concerns. I was so impressed of the calming feeling I had the moment I walked through the door. Thank you all again for everything.

I couldn't have been happier with the service you provided for mom and all of us. I think the best thing you did for us was being persistent in getting mom to make significant decisions when she was alive. That one act saved us so much confusion when things were the most tender at her passing. I knew what to expect even from another state, and we didn't even have to make an extra trip for all those decisions. You were so kind to us and tender with mom. I wish there was a Wilks Funeral Home here. Your facility makes it so much easier for large families especially with little kids. Mom would have been so pleased. I know that she was. Thank you again. The Smith Family.

I am writing to thank you and your staff for the wonderful way my family and I were treated following the passing of my father, Milo Mickelsen. From the minute we set foot inside the funeral home door until the completion of the funeral day events, we were treated with loving care - so rare in today’s world. You and your staff covered every detail in the most professional way, making sure everything was in place for the viewing and funeral services. Whenever any of us called, you answered and delivered on every request. You took the burden from us and made it your own, and I am forever grateful for your kindness and professionalism. At the end of the day on Friday, all I could think was my Father’s viewing and services couldn’t have been more perfect. Thank you for all you did to achieve that perfection.

As I sit reflecting on this past week, I would be remiss if I didn't express my sincere appreciation for your professional and caring approach to taking care of my mother and our family. Words are not adequate to express our gratitude. When my father passed 6 years ago, we were treated as if we were the most important client you had. This experience was repeated again now with my mother. Every detail was covered and met with compassion and support. We couldn't have had a better experience. The facilities were extraordinary, the forum immaculate bu the care and compassion unmatched. Thank you, thank you for providing a required service and doing it with class and better than all the rest.

We would like to take this opportunity to express our sincerest appreciation for the thoughtfulness presented to us and love we were given during our time of bereavement. You helped us through the process from beginning to end, explaining each step along the way. You did not miss the smallest detail and nothing was too much trouble. Your facility is so beautiful and accommodating. The minute I walked through the front door I felt such a feeling of peace and comfort. The care that you and your staff provide are insurmountable. It was a comfort to know that the details were in your hands and everything was beautiful. We also appreciate the use of your beautiful facility. Thank you all for the acts of kindness shown to our family and we greatly appreciate your services.

I just wanted to say Thank You for the wonderful care that Wilks Funeral Home provided for my father, Kay Richards Davies. A special thank you to Aaron Rowbury, he was so professional, caring and he made this experience so much more bearable. Wilks did an incredible job with my dad. He looked so peaceful, as if he were just sleeping. As a family, we really appreciate Aaron and the staff at Wilks Funeral Home. I have been to two other services at Wilks, for my uncle and aunt in the past year and a half and you all do such a wonderful job. Thank you so very much!

Brock and the staff at Wilks was so helpful, professional yet personal, and compassionate to us before and during the loss of our Mom, Grandma, Great-Grandma and Auntie, Violet Lintvedt. What is a difficult time for the family, Brock helped us make our decisions and plans easier from the funeral to the last little details to honor Mom. Our family will forever be grateful for your kindness, compassion and continued support.

I am long overdue at sending my deep thanks for the care you gave us at Dahl's funeral in 2016. When Brock showed up the night Dahl died, my sorrow was eased. I knew Dahl would receive the best of care. Later, while my daughters and I dressed my husband, Brock was always close by to guide us and show us easy ways, but he stayed in the background allowing us our space to talk of our time with Dahl - to laugh and cry. I especially liked the way our grandsons and grandsons-in -law were arranged on either side of the sidewalk as the casket was carried to the hearse. The entire staff of Wilk's funeral Home were so very kind and caring. As it was Dahl's wish to be buried in southern Utah, we owe extra thanks to the staff person who went with us there. Every thing was set up wonderfully and the America Legion was in place. Even the weather was beautiful . Å miracle we thank our Father in Heaven for. We were able to have a short program and dedication. Ås it is our family's custom to help put the dirt into the grave. Wilk's staff member waited patiently until we did our thing, before taking everything down.. We are indeed grateful for Wilk's Funeral Home and the care we received.

I just want to commend Wilks Funeral Home, their staff and especially Shawn Cobbley for the "beyond the call of duty" care they gave us after the passing of my father, Jack Wells. I have dealt with several funeral homes over the years, and I can honestly say that Wilks, and Shawn, are the most caring and concerned group I have ever encountered. I would never recommend another funeral home to someone after the wonderfully caring help from this amazing group!

I wasn't sure what to expect in planning final arrangements for my Mother in Law. Wilks went above and beyond knowing exactly how to help us make hard decisions that unfortunately weren't made in advance. They were incredibly considerate and lovely to work with. This confirmed our decision to have them handle our services. We chose cremation, and they helped us feel comfortable and no less important even without a burial service. Would HIGHLY recommend them!

Brock and the staff at Wilks Funeral Home were amazing to work with. Discussing funeral plans before my mother passed away was particularly hard on my father but Brock gave him the time and space to grieve the thought of her passing. Little did we know, the following day would be her last. He guided us through the process and helped make the services exceptional. From start to finish, we will always remember his compassion and professionalism. Thanks again Brock and team!

I'm not so good with words, but just wanted to let you know what you did for Ron and I was so much appreciated. You just don't see that kind of kindness these days. Shawn, you were amazing!!! You did such a wonderful job on Jacqie. She was so beautiful. Your kindness just warmed my heart. You did such an awesome job on her service. Can't thank you enough. Also, I would like to thank Kari. She has always showed her love and how much she cared. She was there with open arms. Every time I walk into Wilks Funeral Home, the lady at the desk, and everyone is just so kind. I have told so many people about Wilks Funeral Home. That's the place you want to go for your loved ones. Thanks again for everything!

We are learning that even as time passes, the grief and emptiness of losing a child can be overpowering. It is easy to get lost in the memories and emotions as we come to terms with our new reality. It is because of this difficulty that we wish to thank you and your staff for guiding us through "needful things" while we were literally in shock. You have perfected the art and skill of honoring those who have passed, and comforting those that remain. The detailed care in which you provided our dear son as you transferred and prepared his little body to rest was very sacred and respectful. He looked happy and peaceful. We were very impressed by the ingenuity and creativity that you demonstrated as we spoke of Konner and his interests. We were able to incorporate so much of his life into the viewing and memorial services in fun and tasteful ways. We felt that through your help and insight, we were able to tell his story to those who didn't know him like we did. Every detail was addressed completely. Selecting casket, vault, program, and monument options were not rushed or hurried. We felt that we were allowed to move along at our own pace and make decisions that we were comfortable with. We never felt like the money, or payment options were the focus of our choices. We were able to focus completely on our boy. Thank you so much for taking care of our family. Thank you for understanding this difficult process and helping us navigate through it. Thank you for seeing the importance of " the little things". Thank you for being experts at your craft.

As a family we want to give to you our most heart felt thanks from the depths of our souls for the most tender, charitable and skilled manner with which you assisted us as we struggled and grieved when our beloved Ron left us. Our spirits were especially lifted as we saw Ron. He looked so peaceful and natural. What a great relief it was to us as our last view had been of him so terribly insulted by medical efforts to keep him alive. So grateful are we that our last moments with him were beautiful and peaceful as it had been in the years he was alive. We were pleasantly surprised when you informed us that you were staying at the cemetery until all the work was completed, some of Ron's brothers had planned to do that and this allowed them to be with family and go back after the luncheon. The DVD, pictures and settings were exceptionally well done, soothing and reminded all again of the blessing he had been and still is in our lives. You provided such outstanding service to us in a time of great need. We will always be humbled and ever grateful for your tender help.

We want to thank you for the service provided to my/our family by your funeral home. Your service and staff were very compassionate and caring. When a business, such as yours, provides so much kindness and quality while performing a donated service, it speaks volumes about the goodness of the business owners, and help.

I am writing to you to express my deep appreciation for all your kindness, professionalism and compassion you extended to me in an extremely difficult moment of my life. My son Dr. Paul Abraszewski died on June 24, 2007 in accident of white-water kayaking on Blackfoot River in Idaho. This was a terrible blow for me, my wife Teresa and Lee-Paul's wife. We decided to have all funeral services for Paul in Pocatello and then transport his body to Warsaw, Poland for burial in a family grave. All religious and memorial services went very smoothly with a large attendance. Transportation of our son's coffin to Warsaw was a complicated operation. You were very knowledgeable of all material and legal requirements governed by convention on an international transport of human remains to which both the United States and Poland were parties. You had everything ready and on time. I was impressed by your precise planning and invention to overcome unforeseen difficulties. Thanks to you everything went well and the long voyage completed as planned. I would like to use this opportunity again to express my gratitude to you and assure you that if such a need arises I would with full conviction recommend you and your services to anyone as exemplary in competence and human qualities.
