About Us


It is our greatest pleasure to hear from families we've served after the service is over. We receive many letters, cards and emails thanking us for our care and attention during their time of need and those words warm our hearts and affirm that we are truly here to serve.

If we have served your family and you would like to share your thoughts, please write your own testimonial.

Words can not express how much my mom, brother, and I appreciated your kindness as you walked us through such difficult decisions that needed to be made. The service was beautiful from the beginning to the end. My dad would have loved hearing all the wonderful memories. Thank you all again. We will be forever grateful and will always remember your kindness. P.S. My mom said you make the best coffee!!

Thank you to Jason Telford and staff for a beautiful service in spite of difficult times during this pandemic. You have been our family's funeral home for many years. As always, the services provided are professional, courteous, and compassionate. I strongly urge families to consider Solon-Telford during difficult times.

Cecelia (Roth) Kendall

Thank you for the wonderful service during a difficult time. We really appreciate everything.

Judy Gourley

Dear Jason, We felt blessed to have you for our mother's funeral director and as a friend. She told us so many times that "you" were the one. The one she wanted to make her look lovely and take good care of her. Thank you for everything you did from the beginning to the very end. One is never prepared when the time arrives. The pandemic only added to the complications of the details, but your expertise and knowledge came through smoothly. We are forever grateful to you for the care, compassion and support you showed towards my family. It was reassuring to us to know mom was in such experienced hands. Every detail was beautiful. Thank you, Jason.

Jason was so helpful to our family when I lost my sister Karen. My sisters services were in California but Jason was kind enough to help me write her obituary and submit it to the paper. He also posted it on the funerall home website. Thank you Jason we appreciated all you did.

Being one of the most difficult times that we have to face. I must say that Jason and Dolly and their staff were amazing. The care that they gave my family was by far the best. I could never repay them for the care that they gave my Mom and my family.

You two have a wonderful way to host and help the bereaved with the loss. I appreciate everything you did for my brother's memorial. Thank you for working shoulder to shoulder with us putting out the picture display, mementos, tv slideshow, flowers and plaques. It was like being in a living room or family room. Streator is my hometown and I love coming home. You made it a lot easier than I could have imagined. Thank you for all you two did for Frank R. Kovacevich. He was my only brother and a great brother he was- thank you, we truly appreciate it.
