Richard was extremely professional throughout all of our contacts. And yet, he was always helpful and patient with us through all of this process with him. No matter how busy Richard seemed to be, he took the time to handle our phone calls or text messages. We felt that he demonstrated such a level of trust to ensure us that he would handle things for our loved one! A well-deserved A++++ experience rating for him.

I received your much appreciated card commemorating the one year anniversary of Dad’s death. His stone was finished correctly. Thank you for your support; I’ll be fine, he taught me how to handle adversity. My aunt, Dad’s sister is starting to channel down. When the time comes I am sure you will give my cousin the wonderful support you gave me. Thank you for your kindness. Abe Wondergem

Our Uncle George was laid to rest Friday. I must let everyone know how the Haverstock staff made this day a true rememberance of our Uncle. They let the family display some of the guns that he refurbished. He loved to fish They displayed rods and fish. He loved to can. They displayed canning display. He played cards and there was a table set up for card playing . They even played a song just for our Uncle. (Country Boy can Survive) This is Our Uncles true Life. We will miss him. We loved him Dearly. Rest in Peace Uncle George. Thank you all of the Haverstock and God bless you all.

I just wanted to take the time to "Thank You" for your services and compassion for our family. Norma was the matriarch of our family and she will forever be missed. Thank you for making a beautiful presentation for my grandmother. She loved Christmas, July 4th, and the Holidays in general. We didn't get to spend Christmas with her this past year, but what you guys did with the display I know for sure she was smiling from above. She was the most selfless, strong, kind hearted, and beautiful woman I ever knew. Thank you. Angela

Thank you very much for everything that you did to make Pedro's passing so much easier to deal with. From the first phone call and until the last moment at the cemetery, I knew he was in good hands - so reassuring.
Everyone has been so professional, kind and caring from start to finish. Thank you so much for getting Pedro so perfect! He looked very hand-some. Your team is true star to our family!
The funeral itself was outstanding and beautiful. The cars and all your staff looked wonderful. Pedro's coffin resplendent with all the flowers is a sight I shall never forget. You all did a fantastic job throughout. I am confident Pedro is very happy and thrilled with the whole funeral.
We have no hesitation in recommending you to others-heart-felt thanks to you all!
Best Wishes to you all, Familia Farias Oliveros.

Richard was very easy to talk with. His attention to detail for my husband's viewing was spot on. The personal touches were unexpected but nice. The meals delivered afterwards were also a pleasant surprise. I only have nice things to say about Richard & his staff. They made a difficult time easier.

You are amazing people and just know that we are beyond grateful. God Bless you for your kindness and compassion during a very difficult time.

I would like to put out here that my family just went thru a horrible loss with my twin grandsons being born prematurely and not making it. The care and compassion we received from HAVERSTOCK FUNERAL HOME was INCREDIBLE to say the least! I could never put into words what an amazing job they did to make my son and his fiancé feel comfort as they went thru this! They handled every detail with the utmost care and I could honestly never thank them enough. Richard ( the owner/funeral director) said several times they were honored to handle the boy’s arrangement and we could feel the sincerity! I highly recommend them to all! My deepest gratitude to them is not enough but all I have to give!

Terri and Richard were absolutely wonderful. They took such good care of my Mamaw and her family ensuring everything went as smoothly as possible including adding extra things that I didn’t even know they were doing. They noticed my Mamaw like to fish in one of her photos so they went and brought a fishing pole in and put it on display they also printed out extra photos and decorated the room beautifully. Knowing purple was her favorite color they added some purple bling to the top of the vault making it perfect!! They went the extra mile without even being asked and I am so grateful we chose them to help us in this difficult time. It made this time much easier knowing I could trust them and not have to worry about a thing. We will never go with another funeral home this will always be our first choice!

Funeral home (last responders) giving to our “first responders” ...
I had the privilege to work with Richard Vyse when I first came into the industry and if you have never worked with him, your missing out! He is truly a remarkable man in so many ways. I won’t even say one of the best I’ve worked with because his leadership and mentality has been “THE BEST” he loves his community and he loves his funeral home and I couldn’t be more happy seeing him venture into owning his own funeral home and continuing to reach out to the community and be the best at what he loves! Kudos to you

Terri and Richard were awesome. Mom had a lot of her pre-planned but some things appeared to be no longer available. Terri got on the phone and called the manufacturer, found the new name of the casket and brought it in for mom. Their (including Rhonda and the whole crew) desire to be sure the family ( and mom) was happy is unbelievable. Moms funeral was during the pandemic causing us worry on how many of her friends would be able to come out. Terri had the awesome idea of doing a drive thru visitation for the last hour. I can not say enough good about Haverstocks as a whole. It has been an institution in La Porte for years and I ( and mom) were concerned the family touch would go away with the new owners. IT DID NOT! Thank you again for putting mom to rest with dignity and grace as she wanted.

Jason West

I have been to viewings at other funeral homes where the deceased person did not even look like themselves but have always been impressed by how well Haverstock made the person look. Five years ago when my sister passed away I suggested to my mom that we use Haverstock and they did not disappoint me. My sister looked wonderful. My mom prearranged her own funeral at Haverstock because of that, and when she recently passed, they lived up to our prior experience. Richard has taken over managing the organization and he was just incredible. He and the staff there were attentive and proactive, which made a stressful situation so much easier to get through. I would recommend Haverstock without hesitation.

March 18, 2020

Richard and his crew did an absolutely amazing job handling my sons funeral. They thought of everything which was great because I was incapable of thinking at that time. We had so many wonderful compliments on the service and I had to give all the credit to Haverstocks. They were very kind and compassionate and respectful and made me feel safe during a time when it felt like the world was crashing down on me. They are a very special group of people.

Dear Richard & Terri,
On behalf of our families, we would like to thank you for the wonderful job you did for our mother Joyce's funeral. We absolutely loved all the personal farm touches & the arrangements of signs, pictures, and flowers, etc. It was especially meaningful since we were unable to have very many guests. It was also very nice to have someone set out the food & be able to use the Cafe' for lunch. Thank you!

The Siefken, Diesslin, Demoret Families

Our family was so pleased with the care, compassion and professionalism shown to my mother after the loss of her husband. Rhonda and Richard and all of the staff have been so supportive and helpful. And the service itself exceeded our expectations. I highly recommend this funeral home.
