"I would like to thank everyone at the Gallaway and Crane funeral home for their support regarding my mother Ethel Hyler-Yawgers funeral. Both Mike Gallaway and Mike Badolato took the time to make things very personal and you never felt rushed. We were treated with respect and warmth from everyone. Everyone was willing to go the extra mile to provide assistance, making a very stressful and sad time a bit less stressful. I can't thank them enough for their kindness."

 “When a dear one passes nothing is more comforting than having your hand held through the difficult process of planning a funeral.
Mike and the rest of Gallaway and Crane did just that, for me and my family, when my grandmother passed recently.  They handled everything with a high level of integrity and grace.
Gallaway and Crane Funeral Home was a blessing during a difficult life moment.  I was able to ease into a difficult day knowing everything would be Ok.”
