To Adam & the entire staff, my family and I cannot thank you enough for helping us to CELEBRATE my husband (Jack McDonough) life!! We asked you to make his funeral as upbeat as possible because that is how he had lived his life! My children & I gave Adam the information for his obituary and Adam wove it into a beautiful story. Adams wife,Caitlin, took our photos and music and presented a fabulous video! Thank you for that. Our visitors (of which there were MANY) all commented on how much fun it was to watch! Adam keyed in on our sense of humor and helped us lighten our sadness and get through this difficult time. Thank you one and all!! Patsy and family

To Everyone at Conroy-Tully Walker, I just wanted to thank you all for your help with the sudden and unexpected passing of my Aunt. Every time I called, I was met with a calm, compassionate, patient voice. Every time I came in, I was asked by Adam and Dan how I was doing, how my mom was doing. Genuine care and concern. It made such a difficult time a little easier. And your patience with us when we were a bit indecisive means so much. Thank you all, and God bless.

To All at Conroy-Tully Walker, Thank you very much for making the memorial service for my sister on October 1, 2016 a beautiful setting to give tribute to her life. As her brother I was really happy to see it so crowded but I can appreciate that it created challenges for you. Please accept a heartfelt "Thank You" for all your help to make Jule's memorial service a day that we will remember with smiles and tears for years to come.

My husband and I were vacationing in Maine from Louisiana when he had a heart attack on the plane. We were taken to Maine Medical Center where he died 6 days later. I found Conroy-Tully Walker online and went to check it out. I was very pleased with my initial contact and service. Our daughter flew up to be with me and we were pleased with being able to spend time with John on Wednesday before the cremation. On Friday, we received his cremated remains, packaged very nicely and suitable for the plane ride back to Louisiana. Everyone we spoke with at Conroy-Tully Walker was compassionate and helpful. I especially loved that they gave us an opportunity to spend time with John in the funeral home. He had been shaved and his eyebrows clipped. He had not been able to shave in the hospital. I am so very thankful for your care of him. It meant so much to me to know he was in good hands. He looked well kept as he liked to do, in his own clothes that we brought over. Then I left him in that lovely and beautiful funeral home with you. I talked with Dan Hatt who was very kind and helpful, and Julie was always very compassionate and kind when I called. I especially thank Dan for arranging for Johns fingerprint to be placed on a pendant which means so much to me. When we picked up Johns remains, the owner of Conroy-Tully Walker even made a point to come in and talk with us to make sure everything was satisfactory and to see how we were holding up. We really appreciated that and would highly recommend this funeral home to anyone who has to arrange for a cremation.

Adam and his team were more than accommodating. He listened to our requests and made everything a beautiful ceremony. I couldn't be happier with the way Adam spent the time to get us through that difficult situation. He also knew our loved one was an animal lover so he introduced his dog, Newbie, to us which brought us a lot of comfort. Claire L.

Dear Alissa, From the moment we met you, we knew we were in good hands. You were so professional. Yet in the following days, we came to know you as a caring, considerate, thoughtful and compassionate person. You were always there ready to help with whatever we needed. We knew we could depend on you. We always had the faith that you would lead us through an experience that would honor our mother and you did.With all our gratitude and appreciation, The Children of Henrietta LaRou

Dear Adam, On behalf of my entire family, we would like to say thank you for helping us during the last few weeks. You and your staff handled all the details of my father's wake and funeral with care and sensitivity. Your gentle guidance was much appreciated. We had not been through this before and really didn't know which way was up. I am so happy that my Mother chose your funeral home. I can't imagine we would have had such a good experience anywhere else. I recognize that you do this every day, but it was important that I tell you how much your assistance helped us during such a difficult time. We felt that the wake and funeral were perfect (or as perfect as such events can be.) My dad had a fantastic send off and, for that, we will always be grateful. With our sincere gratitude, Karen M.

Dear Adam and Staff, Thank you very much for the flowers for my mother's funeral. Thank you for your amazing attention to every detail that made the funeral just the way she wanted it to be. My mother had a wonderful 93 years and left us with many fond memories. Thank you for making her final celebration a wonderful one. I would also like to add a thank you for the Remembrance Service at Holy Cross. It was a very nice way to help us approach this holiday without her. Again, thank you for everything. Sincerely, Margaret H. on behalf of the Powell Family.

Adam, I wanted to take this opportunity to say "Thank you" again for the beautiful service performed on October 15 for my aunt. I couldn't have done it better if I was so inclined. The presentation for the service was beyond my expectation and in my own opinion very elegant - something she deserved to have. Your staff as well deserves my utmost appreciation in their thoughtfulness and assistance. I cant say Thank You enough.

Dear Adam, You made a difference. Thank you for your honest kindness and compassion as you guided our family through the process of honoring my sister. Our family was sorry to hear that Chris Crawford had stepped back but I had already heard of the wonderful, young, new owner. From my first phone call to my last contact I felt taken care of. You are an "old soul" with wisdom beyond your 28 years. Thank You, Roberta

Dear Adam and the entire staff at Conroy-Tully Walker, Thank you so very much for the comfort and support that you provided during the loss of Carol P. You went above and beyond with each of us (which can be a lot!) We know some of the requests may have been exhausting but you handled everything with grace and professionalism.

Thank you for offering my family the best possible experience from beginning to end. I pre-planned my parent’s funerals and shopped around a number of different options in Portland as part of that process. I was so lucky to work with Danny Hatt as he made the entire process incredibly easy and dignified. To me this was a difficult and morbid task but it became comfortable, normalized and at times enjoyable with Mr. Danny Hatt leading me through it. I don’t know that much about funeral arrangements but had the outline of what each of my parents wanted. Danny listened, explained every option, all the different pricing, and various regulations and gave his extraordinary well timed recommendations as well. Danny clearly has tremendous experience in his profession and is an amazing listener. Those qualities put together and Danny was able to help me plan exactly what each of my parents wanted and at the right price. My father died unexpectedly five days after I finished the pre-arrangements with Conroy-Tully Walker. The new owner, Adam Walker, Danny and the entire team at Conroy-Tully Walker put together the most respectful distinguished wake and funeral that my family could have asked for. You’re attention to detail is beyond impressive! From the moment of the first call to Conroy-Tully Walker, you took care of everything and everyone. Superlatives are not enough to describe how much easier you make such a difficult time. I have and will continue to strongly recommend anyone in the area to use your company for any funeral home needs. You are wonderful, amazing, consciousness, and all the members of my family from many various states were impressed with my father’s funeral services. Thank you to Adam Walker, Danny Hatt and the entire Conroy-Tully Walker Team from the Kelley Family.

Dear Adam and staff, Thank you so much for taking excellent care of not only both my grandparent's funerals this year, but also my family as well. It was unfortunate to have both my grandparents die within six months of each other, but Adam could not have provided greater care and understanding to our family through out the entire process. Adam has this way about him that ensures you he will take care of your loved one and you as well. He is extremely thorough and provided the highest caliber of care for my grandparents- I was so impressed and comforted by Conroy Tully Walker as a whole and I would highly recommend it.

Dear Adam, On behalf of the Werner Family I want to thank you and your staff for the wonderful memorial service she had on December 20, 2014 at the South Portland Chapel. The Chapel is a comfortable space, well appointed, and designed to accommodate a large number of people while still remaining cozy. Also, there is plenty of parking. Adam and his colleagues were so very helpful through the process of planning, refining and producing a memorable send off for my mother, Kay Werner. There were many details to address and each of these was handled in an accommodating and professional manner. Our entire family was pleased with the place, the atmosphere, and the assistance provided by your company. Therefore, I would endorse Conroy-Tully Walker Funeral Homes for the support and attention to detail you provide to families who are in the midst of a stressful life event. Sincerely, Margaret Lane

Dear Adam & Crew, I just wanted to thank you for your professionalism and kindness during the funerals of Mary Mitchell and my dear friend Evelyn Ward. Two in one week is a bit unusual and in a good 'ol Maine winter "to boot"! Adam - forgive me for not realizing you were the owner. You are definitely in the right business as your kind words of sympathy and quiet strength shine through with eyes of compassion and empathy. We wish you well in your new endeavor. May God hold you in the palm of His hand. Gail

Bill, Chris and Adam: Thank you seems to be not enough, but I do thank you for your kindness, compassion and professionalism afforded me and my family during this difficult time. My mom has been the center of our family for a long time and she has been my best friend for my life time. So, losing her, though natural and frankly, a blessing, has been hard. But the service you provided helped all of my family, and we are grateful. These past weeks are kind of a blur, and at times it does not seem real. But, I know that your help made the process easier. Thank you again and may God bless each of you as you continue to serve others in their most trying times. Fondly, Linda F.

Dear Adam and Staff, Words cannot express the comfort and class you presented to my husband and I. Being unfamiliar with arranging a cremation and having to deal with the loss of my mom, we were very blessed to have you take us under your wings and help us through the entire process.Your comforting nature had a calming effect. I know my mom was looking down with the biggest smile that I could imagine and for this, I thank you. People have told me what a beautiful service it was, one of the best ones they have been to. My husband and I couldn't have done this without you. Thank you for making a sad situation into a beautiful memory. With much gratitude and love, Bob and Bren M.

Today we had our daughter's funeral. From the very first call made, to today when we had the service Adam was professional, compassionate and welcoming. The building decor is modern and beautiful. They were able to meet all our needs and everything was communicated, and completed as promised. Even our families were impressed. We highly recommend them.
