Bill and Beth are very caring and awesome! My mom was dying and my 90 year old dad and I went there to arrange cremation. My dad didn’t think my mom would want calling hours so we just got cremation. My mom died and Bill and Beth were going to allow my dad and us kids to say our final goodbyes. However, my dad started inviting everyone to come to the private viewing. I convinced my dad that we needed to change over to calling hours to invite all these people. Bill and Beth were able to get it all arranged in a very short time. They took care of my mom so well and were very respectful to her and to my dad. I appreciate their caring and ability to be flexible quickly. I really appreciate the fact they were willing and able to roll with my Dad’s requests since he was having a hard time making decisions. Not that I’m eager to see them again any time soon but I will most certainly use their service again when the time arises.

I am so glad to have discovered Wm Nicholas two years ago. Both Bill and Beth are amazing people who definitely help relieve the pain and stress of a loved one's passing.
Two years ago they assisted me with my Brother's passing so I contacted them last week to help me with my husband's passing. I strongly recommend them and tell everyone who asks about Wm Nicholas.

Whether through illness, age, or unexpected circumstances; death is painfully sad. Bill Nicholas and his staff helped our grieving family through a difficult time with compassion, trust, kindness and care. They were responsive and thoughtful helping to make sure that our funeral preparations were handled just as our sister wished.

Thank you to Bill and the wonderful staff at Nicholas Funeral Home. And a special thank you to Father Richard Murphy from St. Stephens Parish for honoring the life of our dear loved one when we needed it most.

What a lovely job Nicholas Funeral Home did for both of my parents. First for my father, then just recently for my mother. Bill was spot on and created the most beautiful visitation experience that was a true reflection of my parent’s lives both times. He is genuine, truthful and was such a God send at such difficult times in my life. He even allowed my mother’s pet bird to be there with us. I will be eternally grateful for the experiences I had with Nicholas Funeral Home.

Losing a loved one is such an emotional and devastating experience. A year and a half ago I lost my dad. When I knew that time was approaching, I contacted Bill Nicholas. He was immediately responsive and accommodating and came to visit me in the comfort of my own home. He helped to ease my fears and pain and pre-plan and make arrangements at that time for both of my parents. There are no words to describe the compassion, empathy, attention to detail and heart-felt care he put forth in that process. The options and possibilities were endless, able to be individualized, were reasonably priced and so accommodating. When my dad passed away shortly afterwards, he provided exactly what we had planned and requested, and was in frequent contact throughout that time to make sure every detail, last minute change and request we had was attended to. I couldn’t have been happier or more comforted during that difficult time. My mother has now also passed. Not only did Bill put forth the same time, effort and attention to detail but he surpassed my every expectation. My mom was very sick and did not even look like herself at the time of her passing. When I entered the viewing room at Nicholas Funeral Home, I wept in comfort and relief to find my mother looking exactly like herself and absolutely beautiful and natural looking! It was as if Bill helped to erase all of the pain and suffering she went through over the past several months and left us with everlasting visual memories of her in peace and comfort. He did a phenomenal job, and arranged and provided the most intimate and personalized service that was a tribute to my mother beyond my dreams and expectations. Bill Nicholas is patient, honest, accommodating and professional and treated my loved ones any myself with dignity and respect. I whole heartedly recommend Nicholas Funeral Home and would rate Bill Nicholas and his business with five stars!

From the initial phone call to entering the Funeral Home, I knew that both Bill and his wife Beth would help me with this devistating ordeal. Everything they did to assist my Brother transition to the next realm was respectful and professional. I am so grateful to have had a great couple help me. The Lord guided me to them. Let them assist you as well.

These are the people to handle your loved ones. Professional, and caring , without the feeling of it just being a job to them . I now consider Bill a friend he was very good to us and I would hope anyone reading this would at least talk to him and his wife before going anywhere else. Bill gave me a closure and sense of peace I didn’t think possible

The owner was a true compassionate and understanding professional. I had mother in law ashes that needed to be placed in specialized urns he was so kind and respectful of her remains.

He treated me as though I was only client and that family needs were more important than his bottom line. I would recommend this funeral home and cremation to everyone. Thank you WM Nicholas Funeral Home &Cremation.

William Nicholas is one of the nicest young men to hail from Niles. I would recommend him for anyone who has lost a love one. He has the instinct for caring about people that can't be taught in school. He just handled my brother-in-laws passing and was so kind to my sister. Thank you Bill!!!

Just wanted to express our thankfulness from William Nicholas during our family's time of need. He is a great person with great compassion and caring. Atmosphere was not like any other funeral homes in the area. William was willing to help us with the type of services without feeling pressure. Also allowed us to have our loved one's favorite type of music. Made us feel like family as well. Also took care of stress off us with the arrangements. Great with younger visitors.

I would like to thank Mr. William Nicholas and his staff for such a beautiful funeral for my mother, Shirley Best. The death of a loved one is never easy, but his hard work and dedication to his craft made this experience memorable. Everything he did exceeded our expectations.

My family would like to thank Bill Nicholas, of Nicholas Funeral Home, for the exemplary service he provided to me and my family during this difficult time of grieving in the loss of our father, Richard D. Marino. I live in California so the planning and travel time was short, but Bill made the process so smooth and flawless that it took the stress off of me and my family in planning the funeral. He goes above and beyond what you ask and showed so much compassion, care and respect in the memorial services for my father. He is a dedicated, true professional with high standards of integrity in how he conducts business but most importantly in how he treated me and my family. I know he may be considered the
"new" guy in town but he should be the "only" guy in town that you go to in times of sorrow and sympathy.
Thank you again for EVERYTHING!
Kind Regards, Cheryl Marino & Family

This place is TOPS and Bill is so very kind, caring and compassionate. We have entrusted 2 loved ones already to him and he was beyond wonderful. Even his tone of voice is soothing to a hurting person. Thank you again!! We will never use anyone else.

I just attended calling hours and while parking, I asked how long the line was. I was told 20 minutes and nearly had a meltdown in my vehicle. The gentleman was concerned and I explained I cannot walk very far, nor stand more than 3 minutes. They escorted me in to the registry, then to the front of the receiving line. The whole time I apologized to everyone as I slowly made my way. I had to also stop and take a break in a chair. They are very compassionate to all and I am so grateful I was able to pay my respects. Thank you!
