My father passed away in October 2023. As I walked into the funeral home not knowing what to expect I was received with such care and compassion by Loreine Alamilo. Loreine took care of me through the funeral process all the way up to me picking up the death certificate. When I came for the wake, I saw a beautiful blanket as a gift from the funeral home. I will cherish that forever. Also, at the funeral service there were three employees there handling the casket and they were all very professional and focused on everything taking place without a hitch. There was a woman there gathering the cards from the flowers and she handed those to me with the sign in book and blanket at the gravesite. The same lady held my hand as I walked behind the casket as they put it in the van to be taken to my father's final resting place. Loreine requested some photos of my father to add to your website and people were able to leave kind words for the family. There will also be a tree planted in my father's name as another gift from Tillman's. I would use this funeral home time and time again and I'd refer you all too. Thank you so much for making this process a little less stressful. I appreciate everyone that had a hand in my father's homegoing. Paula G

Hello, First off I would like to say Tillman Riverside Mortuary has A+, five star service. I recently lost a loved one and I was referred to Tillman Riverside Mortuary to assist with the memorial preparations. When I tell you I loved and appreciated everything they did and had to offer us. The staff was amazing, their teamwork was outstanding and they were very professional, yet very empathetic. Mrs. Shadelle is an angel in disguise, she was extremely helpful, patient and compassionate of our loved one and family. Tillman Riverside Mortuary treated as if we were family and went above and beyond to see to it that we had a beautiful memorial ( which it was absolutely beautiful). They are all you need they offer everything from memorial services, obituaries, the most beautiful urns and casket selections. They offer veteran services, pre plans, traditional and no traditional funeral services, grief counseling, notary Public, in home arrangement counseling and many other services. If you want to be treated like a human being and not a dollar sign, I HIGHLY recommend Tillman Riverside Mortuary for all your memorial needs in one place. Thank you Tillman for helping get through that very tough moment. You guys are the BEST.

To the Tillman Riverside Mortuary Family & Staff.
The services you provided in caring for my son Sebastian O. Simpson on August 9-10, 2021, was awesome. We the Simpson & Jefferson Family were very pleased with your professional trained staff, the kindness they showed and expressed during my son's final hours that he was in your care. We were highly satisfied with the total outcome of the services. A job well done.
The Tapestry presentation of my son, Oh My God, was awesome to say the least. "We Love It." Thankyou for your Beautiful Service from the bottom of our hearts, the Simpson & Jefferson Family & Friends

My mother passed away in 2013, and this is my first time realizing that I had the ability to leave a testimonial for TRM. There was so much care taken of me as the bereaved that I barely remember the full details of getting things all done. Exceptionally compassionate and caring service. What I do have left is a beautiful memorial blanket that is one of my most treasured pieces in my home, as well as this stunning urn that is the perfect reflection of my mother's presence. TRM is affordable, with above and beyond customer service. There have been a host of other family members that we have used TRM for our services before and after my mother and they are our family's number one choice for taking care of our loved ones. I am eternally grateful that my memories have nothing but pleasant experiences with the support and care of this family business. And I am always looking to support quality black-owned businesses as much as possible because it means something to the sustainability of our communities even during challenging times such as bereavement.
With my sincerest gratitude and respect,
Kelli Dillon- Daughter of Walterene Dillon

I used this funeral home for my mother because I was low on cash and was referred by a hospice that they do well for an affordable price. I was very please with the professionalism, hospitality & quality of work. The family is really in the business for the people and not the money. I even got some great add ons which werenโ€™t expected. A gourmet breakfast for my family the morning we went to view mom and a beautiful blanket to greet us upon arriving to her viewing. I would recommend this establishment to anyone who wants a lot for a little. I will definitely consider pre arranging things for myself after such a pleasant experience with my moms services.

Words cannot express the gratitude we have for the ENTIRE Tillman Riverside Mortuary staff! Their services went above and beyond that of any other funeral home that I can think of. From the first meeting with Loreine to the moments the staff (I'm so sorry I can't remember their names, but it was three of them... the shorter woman with the ponytail, the really tall fella with the glasses and the not so tall fella ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿพโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿพโ€โ™€๏ธ... again, so sorry for not remembering your names but you guys were AMAZING) stayed with us as they lowered our mother in her grave and covered her casket with earth, our hearts were at peace knowing she was handled with nothing but respect and honor. And the way the hearse driver handled the drive from the church to the cemetery, you would've thought we were burying Aretha Franklin lol. He was so careful with her and we appreciate every bit of him for that. From the DEEPEST parts of our hearts, we are forever grateful for you all and everything you've done for our family.

With respect and sincerity,
The Family of Claudia Hayes
