Thank you to Jenifer Stewart and the rest of the staff at Brewer & Sons on Belcher Road for your handling of my aunt's funeral. My family and I could not be more satisfied. Everything was handled in the most professional, efficient and sensitive manner. Your firm seamlessly organized not just the church service but the transport to New York for burial. We were so pleased with your website, which allowed us to list details about the services and to post a personal obituary, tributes and photographs. And the video montage that you created and posted was beautiful and moving. .We are very grateful and we highly recommend your services.

I would like to thank Brewer & Sons for their kindness and professionalism in helping my sister handle the passing of her son. My sister had try to use someone else initially and that funeral home did not show for the appointment and did not do what they said. Hence, by the time my sister met with Brewer & Sons she was very emotional and upset. Brewer & Sons were so compassionate and understanding and really helped my sister to heal.

It goes without saying that nobody wants to plan a funeral. However, Barry and the team in Clermont have worked tirelessly for a recent funeral in our family. No detail was too small, and Barry was in frequent contact with us throughout this difficult time. He didn't miss a beat and went above and beyond to ensure everything was taken care of. I would recommend Brewer & Sons without hesitation if you ever lose a loved one and are looking for a reliable, organized, and compassionate funeral home to help you through one of the most difficult times you'll face in life.

My wife of 31 years passed away and we are so happy we found Brewer and Sons funeral home in Clermont. From the moment we met Barry we were comfortable. He was sharp, thorough, and efficient. He helped us work through the entire process without missing a beat. From the start, all the way to the finish of the funeral procession, Barry and his staff were first class every step of the way. I can't say enough good and wish I could give you guys 10 Stars. Thank you for all that you did for us. George Pjevach

Just a short note to say “Thank You” to Brewer & Sons and you personally for all the assistance and support my family has received in carrying out our Mother’s wishes as defined in the pre-arranged funeral agreement. With Mark (my brother) living in Pennsylvania and my residing in Nebraska, managing and caring for Mother’s health and financial matters has generally been a challenge. However, you and your organization got us through this very difficult phase of Mother’s final journey to be laid to rest by our Dad in Concordia. Your compassion and caring approach did much to alleviate a lot of the stress we experienced based on Mother’s passing on 26 April 2020.

My father, Richard, and I would like to send our many thanks to you again for everything you did to give my Mother, Amelia the respect and professionalism that my family witnessed and experienced. The visitation and graveside services went perfectly and gave my Mother the sendoff that she definitely deserved. Michelle and Kenia were amazing when we met last Thursday morning to make the arrangements. My father and I could not get over the care and respect you exhibited during the process which as you know was a very difficult time for us. We were not rushed in any way whatsoever and certainly were not pressured into making any decisions. In addition to you and Kenia, I would also like to thank Draven, Juan, Chance, and Ryan for all they did, they are true professionals! Your entire staff in Tampa and Brooksville are certainly keeping the Brewer tradition going and my Father and I thank you for that!

Recently, my good friend's son passed away unexpectedly. From the moment I called and spoke to Michelle Van Vliet she assured me that Brewer & Sons would be able to assist me. Michelle went above and beyond to make sure the family's needs were all met. She was immensely compassionate each and every time we visited the chapel, and that was at least five times...funeral not included. She even made changes to accommodate everybody on the day of the service, including climbing onto a chair to hang a flag at the grandmother's request. We would recommend Brewer & Sons.

It’s been a few weeks and the calm has come for me . I wanted to take some time to appreciate , and recommend brewer and sons . I could not have been happier with their professionalism , mannerism and all around service . They handled everything completely and went above and beyond . They did not treat me as a customer , from the minute I spoke to Michelle on the phone , I felt comfortable , like i was talking to a friend I’ve known for years . I Worked with a few different people from the Tampa location and brooksville location . Michelle , Kenia , and draven specifically, and I couldn’t recommend them more . They actually made me laugh on more than one occasion during this process . I went to see my brother before the service , and also at his cremation and they made it extremely easy for me under the circumstances . They also helped me cope and deal with my brothers sudden loss after the fact , which is not easy to do for anyone let alone complete strangers . The staff at brewer and sons has made me want to get into this business and give closure and comfort to others . I highly recommend brewer and sons and all of their staff to handle the hardest thing anyone has to do . Above all , I appreciate them more than anyone right now ! I’m so happy they weren’t cold , superficial and overbearing . They did everything and more than I expected ! They took care of my brother better than anyone could have . So Thankyou so much !!!

Dear Kenia and Michelle, I want to thank each of you for making a tough day just so very smooth and easier to manage. I am glad that my father chose the Tampa location of Brewer & Sons to handle both my mother’s (2007) and his recent services (yesterday and the entire week before). I was with him when he did that back in early 2007, and have since presided over both my mothers’ and his memorial services. Brewer & Sons made it so much easier, not to have to think of everything myself. Also, please tell both Juan and Chance that I appreciate their sensitivity, their eagerness to help in so many ways with my quirky requests, and their smiles. They are both gentlemen. I hope you have a wonderful holiday season, both Thanks-giving and Christ-mas…remember the reason for the season, Lord of all, Jesus the Christ!

Dear Debbie, First and foremost I just want to say Thank You again so very much for how you handled the situation with regards to our flowers for our mom. With your empathy and quick thought, and action, Sherwood delivered an amazing arrangement, probably even more beautiful than would have been otherwise. We are ever so grateful for what you did.

We want to take a brief moment to say thank you. You and your family went above and beyond for us here at Ascend Youth Ministry - Grace World Outreach Church. We reached out requesting help for a youth ministry event night... and you didn't just help us... but you went above and beyond serving in any way possible to make this night amazing for our students. Thank you. It was such a special moment, seeing students lay their fears into the casket. We wanted to give you the cards the students wrote on... we hope as you read them... you see the lasting impact this night has made in their lives. This was a special night for them. once that I believe many will talk about and even view as turning points... thank you for being such a huge part in that! We are so thankful for a community family business that is so willing to go the extra mile. Thank you, Barry and Ryan. If you ever need anything, we here at Ascend Youth Ministry are happy to serve you. Sincerely, Chris Fullam Student Ministries Pastor

I want to express my thanks to Jenifer Stewart for her prompt response to my concern over a missing grave marker. I only get down to the Clearwater area every 5 years or so and had not seen the marker for my Aunt Bertha Valentuk for many years now. I mentioned this to Jenifer last week when I was there. She wrote down my contact information and, the very next day, she had located the marker and emailed me a photo showing that it was back in place. It had sunken into the ground and was grown over with grass. I really appreciated the concern that she showed and the promptness in which she responded to my request. Thank You Jenifer! Best Regards, Kenneth (Ken) Trotter

So appreciate the men that picked up my pops. What professional angels they were. I felt that, so did all of us. Never seen anything so perfectly done. Every detail they touched on my dad was like was Holy. Every piece was Holy he was on. Thank you! It was amazing to witness how they did their jobs.

Wanted to Thank Michelle, Kenia and Juan at the Brewer Tampa chapel for exceeding our expectations in every way! The Funeral chapel is beautiful and their advice and compassion was very helpful! We especially enjoyed the Dove release after the service! Have been to other Funeral Homes in South Tampa but Brewer Tampa is 5 star in all ways. The Gorges Family is happy they chose Brewer Tampa chapel.

I would like to thanks everyone at Brewer & Sons especially Rose Marie and Amy. My mother-in-law took a turn we knew she was nearing the end. Dad (96yr old) thought all the arrangements had been made but they weren’t. I contacted Brewer& Sons and spoke worth Amy. She researched that we were enrolled and said Mary Ann would be happy to come to our location. She arrived on time and was professionally dressed and in her manner. She showed compassion towards Dad who was about to lose his wife of 64 years. After mom had passed a staff member at Brewer & Sons contacted me with a request for further information; which saved Dad any emotional stress if they had contacted him. When my husband passed I used Brewer & Sons in Tampa Fl and they demonstrated the same compassion and caring ways at my time of loss. Thank you all there are angels among us and you at Brewer & Sons certainly are. Marion Gardner

I’m writing to you to thank everyone that handled my mothers arrangements. Sila M Rivera. I can’t begin to to tell you how grateful we are for everything done and how efficient, to the plaques being done from the caring way the Director treated us. I know my mother came in a very deteriorated stage, and they made her look just like she would have wanted. It made it a lot easier for us to see her looking like her old self. Once again my most sincerely gratitude to everyone that was involved in this matter. Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart.

My sister and I were tasked with planning the funeral of our father. Neither of us had any experience in this arena and were grieving the loss of our father. We met with Kathleen and she guided us through the process and made this far easier than we expected. Debbie in the office was amazing as she was able to accomplish so many things in a short amount of time. I cannot say enough about Kathleen, Debbie, and Brooke. We are thankful for Brewer & Sons.

Ronald Zigmund and Jenifer Stewart at Parklawn Memorial Cemetery made my mothers burial so pleasant and comforting. They continue to be helpful when I bring a family member to pay their respects at the grave site. Thanks to all of the staff.

My mother-in-law recently passed away and we were thoroughly pleased with our experience at the Spring Hill Chapel. Ronda Gossage and staff were very compassionate, easy to work with, and efficient. We also feel that good value was obtained in a situation where people can be taken advantage of. Would highly recommend.

My family and I would like to thank the staff and Mr. Brewer for all the help and professionalism during the planning and funeral services for my husband, Charles “Chuck” LaFaye. Michelle and Kenia were very helpful and continued to be after the service was over. In addition, the daily emails I receive from Brewer and Sons is helpful in my daily struggle with my loss. This is a very difficult time and the staff has made the process so much easier with their compassion and professionalism. I highly recommend Brewer & Sons. Thank you

Dear Mr. Brewer: On the occasion of doing some pre-planning for my own funeral, I visited your Tampa Chapel with delighted results. Michelle Van Vliet and Kenia Alvarez assisted with all of my questions and much more. The two ladies spent nearly an hour going over many details in the pre-planning progress followed by a tour of the facilities. You can be proud of them and make sure they know how much I appreciated their knowledge and professionalism with their jobs.

Very nice, clean, organized and cozy seating in reception area as well as padded pews. Funerals are sad - as far as how and where this one was - I can say they did a wonderful job. I am sure it is a tough job. God Bless and Thank you for helping us all during these times of need. R.I.P. R. KIMBRELL

Funerals are never a pleasant occasion. No matter how unpleasant, it is still part of the cycle of life. Funeral Directors and their staff can and do make a major difference for the family. Recently, with the passing of my Aunt, I met Barry Brewer for the first time. From my very first meeting and throughout the funeral process, I felt very comfortable, being surrounded by Barry Brewer and dedicated members of his funeral staff. Thank you for everything you did for my Aunt and for me. I will always remember, the white glove greetings and the releasing of white doves. It turned out to be a beautiful day.

Thank you to everyone at Brewer and Sons for helping our family through the most difficult months of our lives. We appreciate everything you did to ensure that everything got done in a professional and thoughtful manner and in the time constraints we had.

My mother was buried at Bushnell National Cemetery, and my father had plans to be buried there also, having served in WWII. However when the new Cape Canaveral National Cemetery recently opened up in Mims, Dad decided he wanted Mom closer (he lived in Melbourne). Dad died suddenly and unexpectedly on March 17 (St. Patricks Day, Mom called him home to be with her Irish family). I made phone calls the next day and by the grace of God, and a lot of help from Joy, at Brewers funeral home and Colleen at Bushnell we were able to have Mom transferred to Cape Canaveral to be buried with Dad 10 days later. I understand this process can take 3 months, so it is astounding that this happened. Joy was marvelous to work with, immediately emailed the paperwork for my sister (in Melbourne) and me (in Spokane, WA) to complete, notarize and send to Bushnell. When the time came to transfer Mom, Barry was on vacation (hope you found great powder in Colorado for that ski trip), but Mr. Brewer (Pat) , Sr. oversaw the disinterment and accompanied Mom to Mims (Cape Canaveral). I was not able to meet Mr. Brewer at the time, to tell him how much I appreciated his firms excellent work, but it such a wonderful feeling to be able to be at the committal pavilion with Dad and look over across a small area and see Moms blue coffin waiting to join Dads. It was such a peaceful feeling that all the friends and family were able to enjoy at such a sad time. Thank you all for your compassion and professionalism in making this miracle happen. I most sincerely appreciate you.

Katie Wagner

Thank you so much for the wonderful comments. It is such an honor to be able to assist you and your family through this very difficult time. Our prayers continue to be you and your family.

My brother Steve Nissens funeral was performed extremely professionally and flawlessly. Thank you to everyone

Kenneth Nissen

Brewer and sons made this unbearable and unimaginable day bearable. Everything was perfect for my mom. The staff was so kind and caring. I felt welcomed and cared about while planning the ceremony, during the ceremony and when picking up the final items. The funeral staff truly take care of your loved one and do not try to overcharge you during this painful process.

Jennifer Craven

Under past scrupulous owners, my parents prepaid cremation services. Upon my mothers recent death we were not able to locate any of the five contact numbers we had for American Burial & Cremation at the Dunedin address. My father was stressed enough and did not need more. We had to choose another Cremation Service Company who took the time to contact Brewer & Sons regarding our prepaid plan and they immediately found our contract from the past owners files and proceeded to work with the other company to transport my mother, work with us and complete the arrangements as originally made. They were professional and friendly throughout the visits. Compliments to Barry Brewer and the newest member Ron for guiding us so efficiently. I know there was an extreme pricing difference from our plan paid in 1995 but they gave us the same quality of service as if we had purchased it from them today. I thank the entire staff for easing our stress at this time. It was and is greatly appreciated. The Iris Collamer Family

My sister Sidney and I just got back from visiting the cemetery (Laurel Oaks at Historic Masaryktown Cemetery), and I just had to write you to let you know how beautiful everything is looking out there. It has never looked that good. You are doing a fabulous job!!! Thank You to you and everyone else at Brewers for taking such good care of our cemetery.
