Jim Pitts and Team,
Once I had a chance to watch the memorial video and look through the guest book, I was in awe of the wonderful work you did to make them very special. I am so appreciative of the great job you did coordinating Dennis' memorial service. You made those uncomfortable moments bearable with your compassion and professionalism (and Kleenex!).
With much gratitude,
LeeAnn Henderson

Buck Ashcraft Funeral Home has been a family tradition for as long as I can remember. It wasn't until I had to prepare my mothers services that I realized why. The men and women at Buck Ashcraft are there to serve our needs in our time of need, everything is explained in time and there is no rush, and finally; everything was the way mom wanted!

Thank you so much.

The services provided by Buck Ashcraft Funeral Home provided to my Sisters and me were excellent. We made arrangements in person but then had to return to our own state, but they continued to keep us updated every step of the way. Everyone was so kind, gentle and caring during a very sad time in our lives. Everyone showed respect and professionalism from the beginning to the end giving us peace of mind and closure. We highly recommend this funeral home should the need arise.

We would like to Thank Irma Wiley and all the Staff from Buck Ashcraft San Benito Funeral Home. They were compassionate, professional and kind through our greiving process.

I just wanted to make sure and note the incredible service and assistance we received from San Benito Funeral Home and their staff throughout our extremely difficult bereavement time and final preparations for my brother David. Our tragedy and load was lightened by the care, consideration, and professionalism of Mr. Zavala, Mr. Cepeda & the entire staff. The new additions of the video memorial, the "can do-always saying yes to our requests attitude" was refreshing! There is no way that in our extreme loss and sadness could we have provided my brother with a final tribute that was just perfect for celebrating and honoring his life in the fashion that we did; if not for the exceptional assistance of the funeral home staff! Every detail was thought of, planned for, and executed professionally and beautifully! The picture/memory wall tribute upon entering the chapel took alot of work and was the topic of many comments we heard that week from our family and friends. Kudos to The Buck Ashcraft San Benito Funeral Home Directors and staff!

On behalf of the Lopez and Cavazos families I would want to thank Mr. Jesus Zavala and Mr. Robert Cepeda for their outstanding work and compassion in caring for our brother, uncle and friend. Both Mr. Zavala and Mr. Cepeda showed compassion during an extremely difficult time. The service was outstanding and every detail was thought of and executed before we even had to ask. It is rare in this day and age to find the level of professionalism, attention to detail and care, but both of these gentlemen were outstanding. Thank you both for all you do and for serving the community.

Dear Zeke, Edna and Staff,
As you know, a funeral home is not anyone’s first choice of places to visit…But, you and the staff made it very welcoming with your easy-going professionalism, your above and beyond personal touches and the servants’ hearts that you all do your jobs with. It was evident from the beginning that you were a staff that knew when to offer your assistance and how to give our family space to grieve or laugh. This pandemic has been a strange time for us all but you and your team did a great job of normalizing our time at your funeral home. Lastly, as a person who likes to “close the loop”, picking up our book with the detailed information on flower/plant arrangements, thank you cards and laminated prayer cards was icing on the cake. My daughter, sister and I nicknamed Zeke, “5-Star Zeke” but truly the whole team deserves a “Gazillion Stars”! All of you will always have a special place in our memories and we can’t thank you enough for the extraordinary service you provided. Take care.

Anyone that complains about the service they get at San Benito Funeral Home could not be pleased with anything that was done for them. My precious Bud was cared for by them and I am more than pleased. He was treated with respect and Cris and Steven were so very kind. I thank the mighty Lord for sending them my way when I was lost and had no idea what to do. Don't be afraid to trust your loved one with these people. I thank God so much for sending them to me at this time.

The Regan Family

Cris & Steven,  We just wanted to thank you both again for the beautiful job you did in preparing my father, Buford Cunningham, for the afterlife. You both are very caring individuals who show compassion. That is so important to those who have lost loved ones. We felt you treated my father with dignity and as if he were one of your own and not "just another body" to lay to rest.  The beautiful tapestry blanket was an unbelievable surprise which we will treasure for the rest of our lives. It was admired immensely at the chapel service in McGregor, Texas. We were proud to let everyone know it was a gift from the San Benito Funeral Home Staff, and told them all how wonderful you both were in our time of sorry.  Thank you again so much! You are special people!

The Cunningham Family

On behalf of my entire family, I would like to thank you, Cris, and the San Benito Funeral Home staff, for all of your efforts and attention to detail during our time of need and grieving.   I personally felt as though we were the only family on the planet that you were dealing with at that time. I felt that we could count on you and your staff to guide us through every turn.  This was my first experience in dealing with the passing of a loved one. You all made it a very effortless process.  In addition, your attention to detail after the funeral is and has been head and shoulders above the call of what anyone could expect.   Thank you so much.
