What Our Families are Saying...

In my opinion, Pittsboro/Chatham County and surrounding areas have a real jewel in Donaldson’s Funeral Home and Cremation in Pittsboro, NC. Recently, my family and I found we were in need of this establishment under the leadership of Lyle Donaldson, and we quickly discovered each individual to be sensitive, compassionate, understanding, and above all honorable and respectful as we planned and carried out my father’s services. My family and I found Lyle, even though he is quite young, to be a man who exemplifies a maturity and wisdom far beyond his years, and his demeanor most definitely compliments his career choice. Additionally, Lyle celebrates and displays a deep respect for the legacy created by Griffin Funeral Home, a longstanding Pittsboro institution, that folks such as myself remember with great respect and fondness. This element alone places Lyle Donaldson in a unique category, where he too will see Donaldson Funeral Home and Cremation grow and develop over the years into an important legacy to our community far into the future. My family and I are eternally grateful to Lyle and his staff; we highly recommend Donaldson Funeral Home and Cremation – not only will your loved-one be cared for with dignity, kindness, and genuine compassion during a most difficult time but each family member will be addressed with the utmost respect and understanding. It has been a blessing to my family and me to work with Lyle and his staff at Donaldson Funeral Home and Cremation.

Most sincerely,
The Warren Strowd Family
