  • Dear Greg & Marla, Mom had it right--Henderson's are the best at what they do! I am very appreciative of all the services you provided for mom's memorial service and interment. I think you folks understand that everyone deals with & expresses grief differently and you respect that. Your attentiveness & professionalism was everything I could have hoped for. Thank you for being the great service that you are.

  • Hello. I wanted to say how much the Christmas Memorial Program and singing meant to me; and to get that beautiful angel ornament was the icing on the cake. You truly are a very caring family. Thank you again and God Bless all of you.

  • Pekin has a new standard in funeral service and we have Greg and Marla Henderson to thank. Their dedication and commitment to our community is evident in the planning and construction of their new facility. I recently had need for their services, their care and concern was greatly appreciated. From the first phone call to the lunch after the funeral in their new community room, they helped with every detail. Again thank you Greg, Marla and George Henderson for the personal investment you have made to improve and serve our community.

Celebrating Life

It's important to take the time to acknowledge the uniqueness of the deceased: the individuality of their personality, and the uniqueness of their life's path. Not just for them, but for you; it affirms the relationship, and leads to healing after loss. Honoring their life is truly an act of love - for the both of you.
