    We have had two opportunities to work with Heather over the last 18 months and she has been a blessing for our family. Her suggestions, attention to detail and attentiveness to our needs has helped us tremendously during this grief process. As much as this process is something we never wish to repeat, I know when the time comes to say "Good-bye" to our loved ones I know she will be the first person I call for assistance. Thank you, Heather. Read more

    Our experience with Renaissance began in 2014 when we lost our mother. You did an excellent job guiding us through all the details. When our dad passed away there was no question that we would entrust his care to Renaissance. You again were outstanding in your kindness and professionalism. I would especially like to thank Heather who gave us her undivided attention at every visit. She was compassionate and caring and most importantly showed competence and skill in addressing all our our questions and concerns. We felt great peace throughout a very difficult time. Thank you Heather and all the staff for being there for us. Read more

    Heather, on behalf of the family of Irene Kennedy, I wanted to sincerely thank you for all of the help you gave us when handling her memorial service. Your facility is beautiful and a perfect setting to say goodbye to Irene. We knew there would be a large crowd and you made everyone feel comfortable and welcomed. I appreciate everything you and your team did for our family as we weren't sure as Northerners what to expect. It was perfect! Thanks again. Mary Margaret. Read more

    Heather I wanted to add my voice to the chorus of testimonials Renaissance has truly earned. Your efficiency through all the steps - hospital, crematory, funeral flowers, ss notification, death certificates etc - was enabling. It enabled me to function in the midst of a wrenching time. I want to extend my sincere appreciation for it all, for relieving me of some of the duties, of giving my time to attend to family priorities, of understanding what a wicked experience the loss of a beloved wife can be. Thank you. Read more

    Our daughter, Taylor White, was suffering from ovarian cancer when we were told there was no other effective treatments to be offered. Together with Taylor, we decided that a green burial best fit her views on life, death and our place on earth. We discovered Renaissance Funeral Home, Heather Hill and their focus on green burial. She was such a great help to our family as we explored options and learned what a green burial entailed. Heather was patient, caring, and kind; giving us the time we needed to make final decisions. She is truly a unique person who identifies with family members as they begin the grief process and who genuinely cares about the quality of the services she provides. Heather and the staff at Renaissance provided compassion that touched all our family. We highly recommend Heather Hill and Renaissance Funeral Home. Read more

    Our family recently experienced the tragic and sudden loss of our daughter due to a car accident. Heather at Renaissance was so reassuring and walked us through this difficult experience with ease. They made planning the service easy, answered all of our questions promptly, made several special accommodations for us, and most importantly, provided a caring environment for us to grieve. I cannot recommend them enough. No one ever wants to be in the situation to need a funeral home, but when you do Renaissance is this place you should call. Read more

    Renaissance Funeral Home was outstanding in assisting me, my loved one and our family in planning and carrying out all aspects of the final arrangements. Mark and Heather are very involved and dedicated to their extremely hard vocation. Since my loved one was to be buried out of state, They made all travel arrangements for his flight and coordination with the other funeral home for receiving the body. The Visitation and Service held at Renaissance was carried through extremely well and their follow up with me after this difficult life event has been equal to none. I would highly recommend the "Renaissance Family" as they became apart of my family. Read more

    Dear Mark, I wanted to thank you very much for your help in dealing with my brother's sudden death. Your compassion and professionalism helped us all so much. Living out of state, we were not familiar with any funeral homes in Raleigh. I found your business on the Internet. I was impressed with your website so I decided to call. You were patient and took the time to fully explain everything to me and answered all of my questions. I also let you know that my parents are elderly and may not be able to make the trip. You were able to provide me with an alternative plan if they could not come. I never felt rushed. I just had a really "good feeling" about you and Renaissance when I hung up. My sister also made some calls to other funeral homes and did NOT have the same experience! When we arrived in Raleigh and met with you my first impression of you was confirmed. You are just as nice and caring in person as you are on the phone! We all felt totally at ease with you and Renaissance. The manner in which you handled everything was truly remarkable! Thank you for the unsurpassed service you provided to us! I would recommend you & Renaissance to anyone looking for a true professional in the funeral business! Please feel free to share this on your website. Sincerely, Carole Read more

    I have been meaning to write and thank you. We were very very pleased with our experience with Renaissance. Joe III was understanding, a good listener, empathetic, knowledgeable, accommodating and above all, incredibly respectful. After the graveside on how respectful Joseph was and how much they appreciated his demeanor and presence. The officiating ministers were likewise impressed and asked the name of the funeral home. Feel free to share my comments. And again, my dad and I and our whole family are deeply appreciative of your service. Hopefully it will be a while before we have need of a funeral home again, but when that day comes, we will definitely be calling you and asking for Joe III. God bless you! Read more
