With my father’s passing recently, it was so stressful and unexpected for our family. Midtown Funeral Home and Cremation came in and helped us so much with all of the logistics. Through a referral from our priest, Greg Lindeman was very supportive of the whole situation. He is attentive to our family’s needs during the whole process, responsive to our phone calls and requests, and extra helpful with setting up the space for my father’s wake and funeral procession. Greg and his team have done this for years so they sure know what they are doing.Most importantly, the communication line is always open and prompt for us so we weren’t too stressed out with the process, esp I have to do the funeral’s planning by myself within a week for my family.I highly recommend this place, esp for the Vietnamese community. Greg and his team are super detailed and knowledgeable of the country’s tradition and religious rituals in both Buddhism and Catholicism. Overall, any Asian community can come Greg for specific needs with the funeral traditions and customs. Last but not least, Greg’s professionalism was the best in term showing his care, supports, and willing to work with us regardless of how inconvenient it may be for him. He did go out of his way for us. We are grateful for all of his work.

Working with a funeral home isn't anything that anyone wants to do. Especially if you're handling the service for the love of your life and best friend. Greg and his family have been in this business for decades. This used to be the Cooney funeral home back in the day and I chose it more for the location. Plus my buddy Benny B and my wife's aunt had their service here. Greg and his team made this such an easy process that I would recommend everyone to go here for this unfortunate and unwanted event. After the services Greg the funeral director and I talked as two people, correction as two friends. Next time I'm in Chicago I'm going to stop by just to say hello and thank him again for his professionalism and for just being a great person in the worst time. You don't think to hug someone someone doing this job but we hugged as compadres.

I recently attended a service at Midtown Funeral Home and Cremation Services. Although the occasion was very sad, the funeral home itself was well appointed with the ambiance of serenity and peace. The décor was very simple but elegant and those running it were very attentive and compassionate. I know my friend would be at peace knowing her passing was handled with such grace and kindness in such a beautiful place.

It’s never easy losing a loved one- in addition to planning a funeral. The folks at Midtown Funeral Home were empathic, professional, and detailed. My family and I appreciated everything that was done to help make our goodbye special and comforting.
