Your feedback

We are always interested in hearing from the families that we serve.  Please take a moment to let us know how well we served you in your time of need. We very much appreciate your feedback.

Everyone at Relyea is supportive, caring, and friendly. They keep the experience proceeding at a level needed by the clients: more work, less chat, they do it. A less formal meeting more laughter and joviality, they are great at that, too.
I wouldn’t change a thing about our decision in choosing Relyea. They are the best!

The caring and professional staff at Relyea Mortuary provided a respite at a time of grief and mourning for our father's death. Everyone we interacted with, from Charlie, to Dorn, to Cindy, provided the support and understanding we needed in order to plan the final goodbye. All this at a time when Idaho is reeling from the pandemic. Each detail was handled respectfully and with kindness. I'm very grateful.

Thank you to Dorn, Cindy, and the rest of the staff for your kind assistance after the death of my husband. Joe was respectful when he came to get his body, and asked if I would like to be in the room or step outside. Dorn's calm demeanor and sincere interest in helping me through this time of grief was reassuring. Dorn's assistance with procedures and paperwork made it less emotional than I had expected, probably because of his kindness and respect developed over his many years in this sensitive business. Thank you to all.

This funeral home and chapel is truly the best place I could have chosen for my daughter's funeral service. The staff was kind, compassionate, patient, they listened to our needs and concerns, and did everything as we asked. They were there for us whenever we needed them. Dorn, Charlie and Cindy are knowledgeable and seasoned professionals that handle all your needs during such a difficult time in ones life. They really go above and beyond!.

The facility and chapel were clean, elegant and inviting. It did not smell like a funeral home. It was bright and uplifting and well decorated.

Their webpage used for the Tribute, Memorial page, service streaming and purchase of flowers or donating a tree in your loved ones name, is fantastic! You must check out this feature.

We were also able to have a mini reception outside the main room, with water, fruit and food trays that we were allowed to bring in ourselves. They allowed us the extra time we needed to chat with family and friends after the service.

They also were so kind to follow up a few weeks later to see how we were doing. They forwarded mail to us that arrived some time after the funeral so we were sure to get cards from friends.

I cannot say enough about how pleased and happy I was I found this place. I highly recommend this funeral chapel to friends and family and anyone looking for real professionals who really care.

Relyea brought absolute beauty, calm and relief to our lives in an unimaginable time. From the first phone call we made with Dave, we and our daughter were well taken care of. We were lost in a time of urgency as our daughter was born stillborn, and the Relyea team provided guidance and reassurance that she was 'under their care'. That resonated with me. Because we couldn't care for our daughter at the time, I felt relief hearing someone else was ready to do so. During such a scary and distant time going on in the world with Covid-19, Relyea allowed us to hold a private viewing for our baby girl with 5 family members. We also got to have time with her each day until cremation paperwork was finalized. For two separate days other than her viewing we got beautiful healing time to be with her privately to sing to, hold, and kiss her. Time I never expected to have. THANK YOU Relyea, Charlie and Cindy for your open hearts and doors and for your professionalism and care when walking us through the details, for such beautiful modern interior design and for your patience.

Our experience with the staff Relyea was flawless. All arrangements were initiated on the phone and online as we live in another State. Photos of caskets were provided thru email.

The day before the services we arrived at their facilities and finalized the details. Dorn and staff met us with respect and compassion. They were able to support all our requests including our music and slideshow requests.

They received our catering order and set it out prior to the end of the service. Again, flawless.

I highly recommend Relyea's to any and all.

I can't tell you in words how much I appreciate all of your work, planning, patience and compassion. My father's death was not a surprise, but we also didn't know so many things - most importantly how our mom would handle it. And while never easy, you made the process so much easier for all of us. Your work is exemplary, and I am just so immensely grateful you were there to help. Thank you.

January 27, 2020

Dorn, just a note to thank you - with all my heart - for the wonderful job you did on Archie and the kind and caring way you treated me and my family. Absolutely EVERYTHING could not have gone better, from beginning to end. There is not one thing I wished could have gone better. You and your employees surely know how to treat us. All of you understood our tender feelings and needs at such a sad and tender time. My "thank you" seems so small compared to all you've done for me and my family, but please know that it comes from the heart.

The tender care my family and I received from the staff at Relyea during the recent death of my son was exemplary. Our every question, request and need was attended to with patience, kindness, efficiency and compassion. They did everything they could to help us through this heartbreaking and difficult time. Our experience with them created a lasting bond. We wouldn't consider having anyone else involved in our family burial affairs.

We want to thank you all so much and we highly recommend you for all of the comfort and help that you gave our family. You made the whole process easier and helped us with so many decisions, and you made our mom feel better at a time like this. Your kindness and compassion and the care that you gave our Father will always be greatly appreciated!

When our mom passed, Relyea was the obvious choice. She knew the people there very well. Great choice! We worked with Dorn, Charlie, and Dave. They were wonderful and caring. Cindy made the most beautiful funeral program we have ever seen. We loved our experience with Relyea Funeral Home.

It has been over a year since my husband passed away. Returning to Relyea funeral parlor today to pick up some important papers brought back such wonderful memories of the good people here and how comforting they were at the time of my husband’s death. The office assistant, Cindy, was remarkablycaring and helpful. Dorn could not have been more professional. He simply thought of everything that needed to be done before, during and after the funeral and graveside service.
Thank you again for a memorable day. My husband would have been very proud of the masterful way we were instructed, guided and cared for. Thank you again.

I want to personally thank you for the services you provided for my mother as she was interred next to my father at Cloverdale Cemetery. In the process of arranging for my mother's transport from Salem, Oregon, to Boise, Idaho, I became concerned that due to circumstances, I was being financially taken advantage of. Then we talked and you explained your services and pricing. Thank you for adding humanity to this difficult process I was facing. I believe your pricing was fair. I appreciate your forthrightness. As an added bonus, you were able to help me to arrange a floral casket spray. The flowers for my mother's casket exceeded my expectations. The citizens of Boise are fortunate to have your company in their area.

I highly recommend Relyea Funeral Chapel. When my Mom passed away in October they were so helpful. Dorn met with our family and was absolutely wonderful. He even came up to my Dad’s house a month later to discuss headstones. Cindy helped design the program and was very patient with our many changes. I love how she created my mother’s timeline. The program was beautiful. At a time of sorrow Relyea’s brought our family comfort.

I highly recommend Relyea for any funeral/memorial services that you may need. Charlie at Relyea has been so kind to my family and myself over the last decade. He has helped me with the process of putting my loved ones to rest four times now. He is extremely kind and helpful which is very much needed in times of grief such as when a loved one passes. Thank you Charlie and team for all of your help and kindness.

I can't tell you how much your service during our time of loss meant to me and my family. Our dad was such a kind gentleman, it is hard to face a world without him in it. I thank you for your help, organization, peaceful and totally undemeaning nature. We felt so supported and respected throughout. Thank you for that. Your display tables, programs, direction and even the appearance of Dad's body were all superb and helped us to let him go onto the next phase of this existence.


I want to express to you my gratitude for teh beautiful and perfect manner in which you interpreted my wishes for my precious hsuband. All of the thoughtful and meaningful little things that weren't so little--the perfect written program of his service--just what I hoped for, with everything just right. The bookmars--a little treasure for each of us. Our grandchildren each have one. And then the important thing I had wanted and neglected to request, your remembered, the audio recording. I truly felt it was all just as he wanted it. He was such a perfectionist. It has given me much peace. I want you and teh dear people you work with to know how greatly I appreciate what you did for us.


Words cannot express the heartfelt gratitude my family and I feel for you and the help you were in arranging our mother's and wife's funeral. You have such a calming and comforting spirit about you, that meeting with you to go over some details of the service, and then to help us dress mom, was a sweet and tender experience for all of us. Your overseeing of every final detail was very much appreciated. Staying at the cemetery after the dedication of the grave, meant so very much to dad. Thank you so much for all that you did for us.


You did a wonderful job in caring for our Dad and our family. We felt like you always went the extra mile and did whatever you possibly could to make things run smoothly and to make us all happy. We just want you to know how much we appreciated you and all of the things you did over the past week.


Thank you for taking care of things for me and all you do.


Thank you for your thoughtful kindness as you worked with us, especially my aunt as she made preparations for the burial. You are wonderful people. Thank you.


On behalf of my family I would like to thank you most sincerely for your kind and attentive manner in caring for my dad and his final arrangements. Everything was so respectful and professional, dignified and gospel centered. I will recommend your services to others and note that “mine” are to be in your hands. Thank you so very much.


Thank you so much for your compassion and humor. I applaud you all for what you do. He looked very nice.

Just wanted to let you know the marker is perfect. Thank you for all your help during this difficult time. It is nice to have someone we could put our trust in and carry some of our worries.


Thanks for providing such a wonderful funeral for my dad. We really appreciate your being there for us and offering us so much help. Thanks for letting us call you and constantly change plans. We appreciate your flexibility. The website is wonderful and will let friends unable to attend to participate in the funeral service. We can't thank you enough for your help and support.


We all, as our family, wish to express our gratitude to you for all and everything you helped in taking care of the funeral arrangements and burial. I shall always remember your kindness to us and the love and support we felt. Thank you again and again.


Thank you so much for all your help and patience with our family and helping to make mother's funeral such a positive experience for our family.

Thank you so much for everything you did for our family during this fragile time. You and your staff have been wonerful!

Debbie & Erin

Thank you so much for your wonderful support and assistance with my father's memorial service. Our family was totally satisfied by you and your staff and facility. Everything seemed to be just right. I am so glad that I met with you that Saturday morning and we were able to make the move. Your relaxed reassuring and warm, sincere manner was just what the family needed.


Thank you for your kind letter. Working with you and your staff since my mom's death has been such a wonderful experience. You have relieved me of so much concern and have been there at every turn to be of assistance to me. Surely you all will be blessed for your kindness and goodness.


We want to especially thank you for all you did for mother's funeral service. Also thank you for Dad's last year. You made everything so easy and pleasant for us. We konw our parents were pleased. They were beautiful people who will be dearly missed. Everything you did was beautifully done. It all ran so smoothly. Thank you for making a tough time easier. You are so great to work with. You have been apart of three other funerals for us in just about a year and a half's time. We appreciate what you have done for us.


I wanted to tell you how much we appreciate all you have done for our clan since my dad passed away. From the first time we walked through your door we felt calm, reassured and comforted knowing that our precious dad was being taken care of. It is really a tender time of life and you made it so much easier for us. Thank you for all you have done for mom, too. She has always had the greatest respect for you and this whole experience has just confirmed that to all of us. You are truly amazing and we love and appreciate you for it. Have a happy day.


Thank you for all your help and kindness last month. When mom passed away, I really was considering a closed casket, but you and your staff did wonderful work. Mom looked so good. Thank you.


On behalf of our family, I thank you for taking care of my father in his passing, his body, and in helping us, his family, create a service and viewings to honor him in the community. Your gift gave us peace. Thank you. It is a funny thing to thank you, to attempt to, when you took care of more than I even know. Your staff is so kind and so professional. They are reassuring experts. I am especially grateful that you were able to take care of my father's body and burial in accordance to his religious practices. That gives me a lot of understanding of why my father considered you brethren.


Thank y ou so much for your services in the care of our dad. Everything from the planning to the actual execution of the funeral and burial went well. Our special thanks to you for their care and their class in taking us through everything. They went above and beyond in the funeral service with our presentation.


I want you to know that you and your staff not only fulfilled our expectations, but did indeed "exceed them in all respects." I appreciate so much all that was done for us as we planned and held Moma's funeral and burial.


We would like to thank you and Relyea Funeral Chapel for your kind service to our family. Thank you for taking care of our precious daughter. Her life and death has and will bring many to know their Savior. The service that you provided has aided a great deal. Again, thank you!


We can't seem to thank you enough! Mother looked pretty rough at the end but you made her look beautiful and at peace. And everything went so smoothly. It helped us in getting through our parts.


Thanks so much for your quick and organized funeral service. You covered all aspects, some we hadn't thought of. Mom mom's hair looked beautiful. Thanks for everything.


Thank you for everything you have done for all of us. You went way above and beyond the call of duty.


I can't begin to tell you all thanks for all you did to make this experience "the best it could be." You all are certainly a class act. It truly makes me want to come there when it is my turn. I will always hold all of you dear to my heart, because you truly know how to treat people! Thanks again for everything!


We just wanted to thank you so much for the tender way that our family was treated by you and your staff. Never having been in this position before, we were so grateful for the calm way you explained everything to us. We also felt like our mother was treated with so much respect! It was a hard time for us but we felt so supported by you. Again, with all our hearts, thank you!


Thank you so much for taking care of our father. The kindness that you showed us was beyond exceptional. I truly feel that your staff really do care about the family of the deceased. You were so kind to our family when we visited with you prior to dad's death. You and your staff will surely be blessed. Our family highly recommends your services. Thank you!


Thanks to you all for all you did for me and my family when my husband died. We had been married for 70 years so it is a real loss to me. I really appreciate how well you took care of him. Thanks again.
