Brad and his staff did an excellent job from the preplanning meeting to the service at the cemetery. They were courteous, patient, and most helpful. Our family has been friends with the Trahans for many years and we are very happy to see Brad carrying out the excellent reputation the Trahan family worked so hard to maintain.

Jimmy was a kind courteous and chivalrous man. I liked him instantly when Carol introduced me to him. We shared the love of fishing and College football. Also our dogs as they are a part of the family. I will miss his laugh and his fishing pictures he would share and the love from a dear friend. We had some good laughs over the years in Alabama and during my visit to Jim and Carol's new home last fall. I will always cherish that time. Carol you have a wonderful support system and your sister is here for you. Love Mitzi

When i finally decided to commit my parents's ashes to Great Lakes National Cemetery, (after 16 years) I chose Trahan's for their help. I am so thankful for Steve and Brad's knowledge on making this process so easy for me. Everything was arranged perfectly. They did everything by calling great Lakes and arranging the committal down to the last detail. I highly recommend Trahan's for any service! I am very proud that we have such a caring funeral chapel in Bay City!

I wanted you to know my sister and I appreciated all you did for us when my mother passed away. She looked beautiful and would have been so happy with the services and all the people gathered to wish her farewell.

The owners & staff of the W. A. Trahan Funeral chapel made us feel so comfortable & at ease during the arrangements that we felt like part of their family. They truly are professional, wonderful, and caring people. We truly were blessed to have them take care of mom’s burial.

Our family has been using the W. A. Trahan Funeral Chapel since the 1950’s. They have handled the services of many of our family. They have always been very caring and understanding. They make us feel like family instead of customers.

Bill couldn't have done more for my wife’s funeral. I will always be grateful to the Trahan family and all of the staff. Walking into the chapel where my wife’s ashes were…I was stunned at how beautiful it was and the video program was the best I’ve ever seen.
