Ronnie and the whole team are amazing! Ronnie became part of the family in guiding and helping us through the planning and preparation of Mom for the service in the middle of the night. Mom passed away here in Stillwater but was taken by Ronnie to Tulsa for burial. He and his staff did a great job making everyone feel at ease during all of the phases of this moment in our lives. It has been a month since the service and I have received two emails from the staff. They wanted to check on me and see how I was doing. This is truly above and beyond and shows how real and genuine the people at Dighton Marler are. Brenda Hoffman - Brenda Hoffman

We didn't have a chance to do any pre-planning. We had heard 2 sources say that Dighton Marler takes great care of their clients, so at 1am in the morning when our difficult heart wrenching phone call was made, it was to Ronnie @ Dighton Marler Funeral Home. We were all the way out in the boondocks and he came and picked up my mom and treated her like the royalty that she is. He allowed us as much time as we needed for rest and planning - we did go in much later that day and we continued to get the same family feel treatment.( I hope that you will read to the end because burying your loved one is so hard to do and you need the right people helping you do it. We were so fortunate to have been guided by 2 references because we've since heard other people's experiences and know that our service was exceptional comparatively..)The facility at Dighton Marler Funeral Home is Beautiful! They have the ability to have a really nice service there --- or they can take care of you out of town! If you know someone that's in a situation that needs a Funeral Home, call Dighton Marler...even if you're in OKC, they could take care of you. I know I probably sound like a commercial, but legitimately it's because you get to know your Funeral Company Staff. These are going to be the people that are going to hold your hands through some of the biggest, most dramatic moments in your life.. - Mary Anne Cantwell

Planning a funeral here was so much easier than the one I planned through a Dignity owned funeral home. We were treated with care and compassion. After the Dignity experience I swore I would never prepay a funeral. Not so now. I just wouldn't prepay through a corporate owned home. Well done, Hayden!

Dear Hayden, The kids and I want to say how much we appreciate you for everything. You have done for Mike and our family! I know you say and think it's your job or you were just doing your job, but we know you really went above and beyond the call of duty for Mike and our family! You made a difficult time in our lives, a very easy process and we can't express enough how very much we appreciate you! Thank you also for having the vault repainted in OSU colors! You made it possible for him to be buried in style, the way he would've wanted! He may not have been buried in an OSU casket but he would've liked this so much better! You had it customized just for him! We all loved it so much! We also want to say Thank you for being such a wonderful and special friend to us all! We cant express enough how much we appreciate you!

Wanted to thank you for your services during the passing of Puddin Payne. Thank you for the excellent job on preparing his lovely face especially. He had a rough go during his cancer fight. It showed in his face and your make-up artist truly helped. He had an angel face. Thank you so much for everything. His charm and personality was so so sweet and fun. his eyes gleamed and his constantly laughed - he was the Puddin everyone loved - thank you again for presenting him so well at the viewing. Don't usually write funeral home services thank you notes but felt you truly deserved it.

Richard and I just wanted to say thank you for the wonderful guidance and service you provided for David Oberhelman's funeral. We had never been to Stillwater and had no say in where David's body was taken or even who the pastor was for the service, but everything went perfectly. The chapel, the reception area, the service, the flower notations, the guestbook the programs, even the thank you notes were tasteful and so fitting for a research librarian. We never felt pressured but always felt like the right choices were presented to us. Thank you for a job done well and with compassion.
