We receive many letters from the families we've served, thanking us for our caring ways during their time of loss. Their words warm our hearts, and speak to you of our professionalism, compassion, and the true value of the services we provide.

  • "Your capability to go 'beyond the box', listen to desires and directives and then take charge with personable and professional perfection when dealing with one in no shape emotionally to deal with any further aspect of a funeral arrangement is what has kept Chiacchio Southview flourishing. You got me through two devastating losses within fifteen months that I can picture noone else doing as smoothly, knowing just what to do, what to suggest, what to inform and just what to say. Thank you forever."

    Claude Elenewich
  • "To David, Thank you for so thoughtfully taking care of the funerals of both George and Marion Nakashima, for so faithfully adding to your unusual collection of Nakashima furniture over the years, for attending all of our shows, and for coming to so many events of the Nakashima Foundation for Peace! You are one of the original Nakashima “groupies”! Congratulations and Gratefulness from all of us!”

    Mira, Kevin and the Nakashima Family
  • "The Cathedral of Saint Mary of the Assumption has worked very closely with David Chiacchio for many years. David and his staff at Chiacchio Southview Funeral Home are pleasant, patient, and compassionate people. David is an expert in his profession and genuinely cares about the families he serves, both emotionally and financially. He listens to the needs and desires of each client and goes above and beyond to accommodate their wishes.” "Congratulations David On 35 Years! Keep up the great work and may God bless you."

    Monsignor Joseph L. Roldán, Rector and Pastor
  • “I, for one, am very grateful to David for being a client and friend. He has gone out of his way to support our endeavors, often showing up for events and taking time out of his busy schedule to see what is going on.” I know that Mira has also, somewhat reluctantly at times, enjoyed some of the project “adventures” that David had suggested and commissioned. A long history is being written with him, which has been a pleasant, constant and warm, punctuated with smiles and laughter along the way. It has been enjoyable, and appreciated. All the best."

    Ru Amagasu, Grandson of George Nakashima
  • “He is such a wonderful and loving person! A special person who is Generous, Gracious, and Grand!! And such good taste! With much appreciation for all that you do,"
