To date, Homecoming has been actively involved with over 1,300 columbarium projects nationwide. We are committed to offering the clients we serve assistance through every phase when developing this ever-important columbarium project.
The following excerpts are from just some of the testimonials that we have received over the past 33 years. They are a reflection of the pride, professionalism and commitment possessed by every employee of the Homecoming family.
“…The ease in which the face plates are installed has helped to make our Memorial Services go smoothly. Homecoming is very punctual in their delivery of their product…(referencing our continuing service relationship)… I have always been extremely pleased with the quality of work they have produced for our columbarium and the expedient manner in which they have delivered the product.”
First Presbyterian Church
“We are very please with the product quality of the niches that Homecoming has developed for our cemetery.
They are very easy to work with. It is easy to remover the face plates, which was a big plus for our company. We had been looking for something like this that would work to our advantage. We are very pleased.
The staff at Homecoming were very helpful with good advice for us.”
“…The fact that your company encompassed the entire spectrum of the project was well received by the committee. The project planning, architectural planning and ultimately construction drawings were timely done and always on target… At every step, your company was ready and willing to listen to the committee’s desires and adjust accordingly… The marketing expertise you were able to share with us from the vast experience of other churches was the key to our raising about half the needed funds prior to construction.”
Central United Methodist Church
“…Our on-going relationship is just as fine. We have found Homecoming to be responsive to our needs; the staff provides Columbarium Provisions quickly and accurately.”
Desert Hills Presbyterian Church
“…Homecoming made every effort to meet our needs with regard to space, design and quality. I found not only Ms. Schorman readily available, but members of her staff, to respond quickly to any questions, concerns or needs that arose before, during and after the design and construction process…
“Now that our columbarium is complete, many members have already made plans for their burial on the grounds at our parish. Homecoming was part of making our dream come true and it is without hesitation that I offer my recommendation of their work and services.”
The Episcopal Church of the Ascension
“…Two years ago we contacted several companies about constructing a columbarium on our church grounds. Your prompt response to our needs and expertise in your field stood out above all others… The professionalism you showed our church from initial presentation, to timely follow-ups, attention to details and through construction completion made our job so much easier… Not only has it been a pleasure working with you, but especially comforting to know that your company has followed through with the same compassion you projected from day one.
“Our Memorial Garden is a real blessing to the life of the Chapel. It is a sacred place, to remember, to pray and find solace. Homecoming was big part of making this happen. We thank you for your quality product, quality service and we highly recommend your fine company.”

“We are very pleased with the final product. Soon after the project was completed we began accepting reservations. Families have commented positively about the appearance of the columbarium and how pleased they are that the memorial will be available for the committal.
We merely sought a columbarium expansion but received so much more. We highly recommend Homecoming and we invite everyone considering your company as their columbarium provider to contact us with any questions.”
Perry Mount Park Cemetery
“…When we were evaluating vendors with whom to work on the columbarium project, we were looking for someone who would provide us with a quality product, good customer support and service before and after the sale, with a competitive price. We chose Homecoming after speaking with and researching several other companies… After checking with other churches who had completed similar projects, Homecoming stood above all the rest…
“…The quality of the product has shown itself in its beauty and workmanship… Helping us with everything from ideas for design, how the committee should be formed, and ways to get the ‘buy in’ of parishioners played an important role in getting the project off on the right foot…
“…Even now, after completion of the project, whenever we have a question or need some additional info, Homecoming’s response is always superb.”
St. William Catholic Church
“I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and your company for the wonderful help you gave us during the planning, construction, and completion of our columbarium…

“It is with pleasure and pride, I commend to you Homecoming, Inc and David Schorman… After contacting him to set up an appointment, I discovered a tremendous depth of knowledge in David not only about the physical side of columbariums but also the spiritual side…
Homecoming has actively serviced our needs including providing urns and face plate etchings… Never have I received such faithful and prompt service in any other area of church life.”

“Our columbarium is now complete. It has been a delight working with you and your folks at Homecoming as we put this project together. Your assistance to the columbarium committee was invaluable. You worked closely with us from initial concept to the end of construction. Each step of the way, you provided timely and sage advice, as well as an excellent product. We could not have done it as well without you!
Now that the columbarium is operational, we have had the opportunity to work with your support staff. The support is nothing short of outstanding. Engravings, urns, plaques – all done professionally and quickly. It is a pleasure working with you and your folks and I look forward to a long and satisfying relationship.”

“Ben, we couldn’t have accomplished this without your help! Your knowledge and ability to share it, your patience in explaining things multiple times, your availability whenever I needed to talk to you, your willingness to travel to Bath so we could see and hear first hand what we were considering, and your concern and thoughtfulness which you relayed to me by telephone and email certainly made this project much less frustrating and stressful than it could have been. Please know that I personally found you to be one of the blessings of chairing this project at our church!
And, I must not forget Amelda! You both must have taken the same course in customer service for she, too, was exceptionally helpful and friendly.”
First Presbyterian Church
“Recently our Savior Lutheran Church, Sun City, Arizona, lost one of its oldest members and one of the leaders of the design and installation of our columbarium.
I ordered the stone enclosure and was informed by Homecoming that Homecoming donated the stone for this niche.
What a pleasure it is to do business with a company who is not only generous, but cares about the customers it serves. Your selflessness and integrity are very rare today and Our Savior Lutheran Church thanks you very sincerely.

“The Rio Verde Community Church built a Memorial Garden the help of Homecoming, Inc. that resulted in a design of the present Columbarium and Niches that receive the cremains of our departed friends and neighbors. This Memorial Garden has received the “Award of Distinction” both in 1991 and 1996 given by the Landscaping, Contractors and Architecture Industries.
Over the years, Susan Schorman has serviced us in an exemplary manner. She and her staff have done their utmost to satisfy our bereaved members in their time of need. At times, these needs arrive unexpectedly and Susan always responds swiftly and competently.
In addition to her very business-like handling of these situations, she is also extremely pleasant and accommodating.”
