From our first call to Tommy Scoggins, I knew we were in capable, professional, caring hands. Tommy and his staff were there to help us through this difficult time at every turn and decision. I would recommend Scoggins Funeral Home, Van Alystne without any hesitations.

The funeral service for dad last Sunday was recorded for our family and friends who could not attend due to the quarantine or distance and I am sharing for that reason. I am proud of the video at the end that Scoggins staff put together for us. It's impossible to sum up my dads life with just under 100 photos and some beautiful songs however it was a great collaberation of some of our best memories from our childhood with dad till recent years. I have watched it at least 20 times. I highly recommend Scoggins funeral services for your loved ones. I know it's hard to imagine wanting that service however when that time comes you want to know your loved one will be cared for and there will be great attention to detail on every account of the memorial service and it was for us for my mom and now for my dad. Thank you Scoggins Funeral Home and staff of Van Alstyne, TX. You are more like family to us than another business we appreciate.

I am very thankful for the help of Scoggins Funeral Home during the recent passing of my Grandparents. First Alvin Whitehead and this past week, Allene Whitehead. Their professional and friendly manner made us feel truly cared for. My parents and siblings had to travel from Canada and it was wonderful to know that matters were being taken care of. Both times Clayton was willing to go above and beyond to create dvd's of the services for those who weren't able to travel to Texas. With heartfelt thanks we do appreciate all that they did!

I cannot say enough good things about Scoggins funeral home. Tommy and Clayton are very personable and professional. They truly care about what you’re family is going through. They went above and beyond for our family. Their direction and guidance helped us to have the most beautiful celebration of life for my sister. At such a time of deep sorrow, the whole staff was just wonderful.

The Owners and Staff of Scoggins Funeral Home were very compassionate and were so helpful to our family in our recent loss of our loved one. They understand that making funeral arrangements can be a daunting task. Clayton really made this hard time a very easy one. Very professional and very friendly. This was the first time I had to do something like this on my own. The funeral home made this very easy for us. They are by your side every step of the way to help ease the burden.

My wife and I lost our perfect little baby girl after 69 hours and 59 minutes in the NICU. We were in so much pain and had no idea what we needed to do, so the hospital chaplains recommended Scoggins to us. They not only treated our baby girl with the same love and care we did while she was with us, but took care of us and everything we needed to do for her.

Tommy and Clayton were wonderful. They took great care of our family and they customized our memorial folders and the insert in my mother-in-law’s casket. Both were very compassionate and patient sorting through various emails with family pictures to create a beautiful memorial video.

The owner and staff truly care about their customers. As heart-broken as we were after losing a beloved family member, this place showed us tremendous love and care. They explained everything in simple terms to ensure we understood the process. For exceptional service at a price you can afford, this is the place to go and you will be glad you did.

Scoggins was incredibly supportive of my family from the moment we called them from the hospital when we learned that our dad was not going to make it. Clayton Stringfellow literally held our hands (and hugged us) through the entire process, ensuring that every detail was taken care of, answering every question we had, and anticipating our needs. The morning of the service, the weather was very stormy and Clayton, knowing that our mother is terminally ill with cancer, arranged for us to do the family service in the chapel at the funeral home so that she wouldn't have to be in the rain at the cemetery. They knew Pastor Lance Baker of Greywood Heights Church, where my parents have been attending in Van Alstyne since Daddy retired from the ministry, and they worked directly with him to make sure everything was prepared for the memorial. They have the ability to support a wide range of funeral services, from the very simple to the most elaborate. They made sure they understood exactly what we were looking for and never pushed us to do additional things that were unnecessary - in fact, they found ways to help us save money. As we prepare for the future needs of our family, we are setting our plans with Scoggins.

Our family has been so overwhelmed by the caring and compassionate service Scoggins Funeral Home was to us during this difficult time. They took the time to let us make our own decisions about what we wanted for our loved one and went out of their way to accommodate us. We will be forever grateful. The Family of Eugene White

My husband and I found out we lost our baby during a scheduled 20 week sonogram. Because of Scoggins Funeral Home, our baby girl's ashes were respectfully laid at the foot of the cross in the local cemetery instead of being discarded at the hospital. My husband and I could not bare this or the intense emotional investment of a burial/funeral. We didn't know of any other option. Just hours before I delivered, God used Clayton as a hero to our family in providing a way that would allow us the closure we needed, while taking care of our baby. Clayton made all of the arrangements for us, and we never had to go to the funeral home. We also got the closure at the hospital with the peace of knowing she was fully taken care of to the very last detail of her life. Scoggins Funeral Home is one of many footprints made by God during our difficult time. 2 Corinthian 1:3-4 “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort those who are in any trouble, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.”

Clayton does an outstanding job and is so wonderful to the family that has lost a loved one. We had a video made with 300 plus pictures and it was awesome. Thank you so much Clayton for all the hard work you do to help families in time of sorrow. Scoggin’s Funeral Home is the best.

Clayton and James both did an AMAZING job on my PaPa’s service. They both went above and beyond to make his service a beautiful and memorable one. My Papa was a Veteran who served in the United States Air Force and Clayton did everything he could to have the Air Force come in and give him an AMAZING 21 Gun Salute! I highly recommend Scoggins Funeral Home in Van Alstyne TX as they are very down to earth, friendly, helpful and definitely respectful!

My wife and I lost our baby girl in the 20th week of pregnancy. We were obviously really heart broken. Thanks to Scoggins Funeral Home, we were able to give our little girl a more than decent sendoff. Clayton was there to help us every step of the way. To me, it's rare to find an group of people or business that really impacts your life in such a positive way, but I'll never forget these guys. My experience with them goes beyond what I ever could have expected. I really can't recommend them enough.

When I married 11 years ago, I lost touch with part of my family and learned recently that my cousin, Jack LeBleu in the Van Alstyne area ;had died. Not knowing how to contact any of his family, I called the funeral home and gave my contact info to Clayton Stringfellow and asked him to contact Jack's family with that info. I don't believe that falls in the category of his regular duties, but he did it. Needless to say, I've heard from my cousin and I am very grateful to Mr. Stringfellow for making this happen. Thank you, Clayton

Excellent service. Very nice facility. Genuine concern for the community. Caring, compassionate & helpful staff. Prices were competitive. Locally owned (corporate funeral homes seem to be driven by policies & the “bottom line, ” aka profit). Resources were available to help those who were experiencing grief/loss. Positive experience during difficult time. Good job, Scoggins. Thanks.

My husband and I had our son Oliver April 24th 2019 but he was born sleeping. We never expected that our son had died. In such a horrible time in our life's Clayton was amazing and helped us with arranging Oliver's funeral. Clayton is very kind, has such a big heart and made sure everything was perfect for our son. He helped us during this difficult time and we are so appreciative for Scoggins and him. We lost our son and you helped us through the most devastating time of our life's. His service was beautiful, you let us do it how we wanted. Thank you for letting me hold him til I couldn't hold him any longer.Thank you for what you did for our family, we will always be greatful.

My family could not have asked for a more kind and loving team to care for our 15 wk old babyin preparation for her send off to the Lord. This family owned business tended to us with the most gentle words and actions we could have ever asked for in this detrimental time in our lives. We did not ask for this journey in our lives, but God certainly set us up with the perfect team to walk the path for us and uplift us where we were helpless and hopeless. We are forever grateful to the Scoggins Family. #angelsonearth Love the Ellison Family

Scoggins Funeral home took care of our family during a very difficult time. We lost our son at 21 weeks and they were so kind to us. They were amazing. They really care about the families that they are helping. Clayton set up such a beautiful service for our son in a short time frame. Our son died April 8th, 2019, and we had the service on April 12th. Clayton was in constant contact with our friend who helped us set up the funeral. Clayton walked us through everything with kindness and patience. He was so attentive to our needs and had the hospital paperwork expedited so that we could take our son's ashes home with us afterwards. Clayton did not miss any details and everything was beautifully done. The program was well made. Midway Floral, who created the arrangements were perfect. The online obituary page and tribute wall were well done. He connected us with a Pastor for our son's service as well. You can tell he loves what he does and loves helping families, it shows in the amount of detail he takes in making everything perfect. I felt he went above and beyond to help us. The funeral home was so clean and lovingly decorated, and the crematory was also bright and clean. The chapel was warm and bright, and overall the feeling from the funeral home was calming. We felt safe and assured having Scoggins Funeral Home take care of our baby. We spoke with the owner, Tommy Scoggins, he has a big hearted personality- he just wanted to help us have a beautiful service for our baby son. I am so thankful for these angels. They helped us get through a very difficult time. We don't know how we could have gotten through coordinating a funeral for our son, but with the guidance from Scoggins Funeral Home, we did. They took care of our dear son as if they were taking care of family. I highly recommend them for their kindness, warmth, and attention to detail. Thank you, Scoggins Funeral Home for taking care of our family.

We are eternally grateful to Scoggins Funeral Home. Tommy and Clayton were there every time we had a question and comforted me along the way. I am 100% sure they took care of our baby girl Penelope like it was one of their own family members and my husband and I can't thank them enough.

Clayton and Tommy were absolutely amazing to work with. Clayton took great care in answering questions regarding the process when I spoke with him on the phone. Clayton came into the hospital room to meet with us prior to us handing our sweet grandson off to make his journey to the funeral home. They are passionate about ensuring that parents are not burdened with funeral expenses while suffering such a loss.

Tommy & Clayton are very kind and caring people who understand how difficult loss is. They do everything in their power to ease that pain and assist families however they can. Words can’t begin to express how much we appreciate their compassion and generosity. In this tragic time, they both exemplified true Texan behavior & southern hospitality ... we would recommend their services. My family is forever grateful for their empathy. Thank you, from the bottom of our hearts.

When we lost our newborn son Noah, calling a funeral home was the hardest thing I've ever done in my life. With that said, Mr. Scoggins, Derek and the entire Scoggins staff was incredibly caring and professional. Through such a difficult time, they made us feel better knowing that our son would be taken care of like one of their own. We are so grateful for everything that was done for us and it's something our family will never forget. Thank you so much Scoggins Funeral Home! -Castaneda Family

Tommy & Clayton we’re unbelievably kind, understand, and communicative with us when we needed our son cremated. They were thorough and extremely polite with my wife and I, and we couldn’t be more appreciative to them and Scoggins for allowing us to benefit from their services.

If you have every had to bury a loved one you know how hard it is to complete this task. However, when it is your 9 year-old daughter the task is even more difficult. From the time that we entered the funeral home Mr. Scoggins was incredibly compassionate and helped us navigate this very difficult journey with understanding and empathy. Clayton Stringfellow assisted us with obtaining funeral plots and working with the Van Alstyne Cemetery to help us with this task. Even though our family was devastated and had difficulty making decisions, Mr. Scoggins and Mr. Stringfellow helped guide us through the process with compassion and gave us peace throughout the process. The staff was so kind that we could not have gotten through this without their wisdom, warmth, and guidance. We will be forever indebted to Mr. Scoggins and Mr. Stringfellow for their assistance!

I would recommend Scoggins Funeral Home and Crematory without reservation. Tommy Scoggins went out of his way to meet our family's needs. He made needed recommendations such as the scheduling of events while letting us know he would fulfill our requests. He treated our loved one with respect and dignity from the first moment. He has many touches that went above and beyond our expectations. Tommy Scoggins and his staff helped to make our experience one that will be remembered with only the best of memories.

From the moment of contact to let Tommy Scoggins know of her passing, we knew he would care for her with respect and dignity.
