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.

My wife and I lost both of our twin boys at 23 weeks. Scoggins Funeral Home gave both my little boys the most amazing, beautiful, heart warming service any parents could ask for. And at no charge. The staff was so respectful of our wishes and offered unlimited help to ease our pain. Their facility is so beautiful and clean, my wife and I felt right at home. Words cannot express how humbled and thankful I am for them. I will always be indebted to these amazing people! Thank you

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.

Scoggins FH is absolutely the best place to entrust the final service of a loved one. They are personable and genuinely care about the families they serve. A beautiful facility which was newly remodeled made for a warm and peaceful atmosphere. I highly recommend them for funeral arrangements, pre-planning and cremation.

Our family would like to thank Tommy Scoggins and the entire staff from the bottom of our hearts for the care and comfort that was given for the service of Betty Smith recently. From the moment of contact to let Tommy Scoggins know of her passing, we knew he would care for her with respect and dignity. There were so many touches of grace offered to our family throughout the days leading to her service and after. Many people remarked on how impressed they were of Tommy Scoggins and his entire staff. I would recommend Scoggins Funeral Home and Crematory without reservations for anyone facing this need.

I want to thank you for the caring way you always reach out to the families that have lost a loved one. Recently you took care of our family when we lost my brother-in-law, Dennis Bostick. You are such a blessing. May God bless each of you for the loving and caring way you take care of those that are hurting.
