I would like to thank the entire staff at Rivera Funeral Home for their services and care during our time of need. My Mother was placed in Hospice Service and I made a call one evening to inform myself of services and costs. The receptionist was very helpful and friendly in giving me the information I needed and the funeral director Marc Gonzalez was very prompt on returning my call. I was comforted in being told that at any time of the day or night all I had to do was make the call and they would be at our residence at whatever hour. When it came to the passing of my Mother the process of filling out paperwork and getting things in order was an absolute ease with their assistance. I also appreciate their professionalism and making sure I was made aware promptly of any problems that may have developed and keeping me informed as to the times of cremation taking place.... I was kept informed of anything regarding my Mother and I was very happy about that.
Once again Thank you to all staff members especially to those that came in to my home to take my mother, I thank them for their kindness & gentleness with her. I thank all the staff that helped me and kept me informed with everything as well and thank you to the Director Marc Gonzalez for each and every update.

Mr. Gonzalez, I would like to thank you and your entire staff for all you did for us as we mourned the loss of our father. You were there for us every step of the way and fulfilled our every need, comforting us and supporting us like you would your own family. The slide show of pictures along with the music truly was magnificent and it enabled us to celebrate life rather than remember his death. It not only was a great comfort to us, but it was a great way for mourners to reminisce and get to know him.
Thank you for all your support and May God bless you always.

From the Garcia-Esparza family we would like to express our gratitude to Marc Gonzalez and the family from Rivera’s funeral home. My babe Patrick A. Esparza passed away on August 15 at MD Anderson hospital in Houston Texas. I called Marc and told him my babe passed and we are in Houston he told me not to worry about anything he would get my babe back to McAllen. The next morning we went to make the arrangements Marc took care of everything from talking to Diana from Rosa Lawn, flowers, music, the rosary, etc. They treated us like family. Everything was so beautiful. I told Marc my babe wanted to be near my parents at Rose Lawn and they made it happened. I had no worries that it allowed me to mourn my babe.
I am still in contact with Marc if I need anything to call him.
This was the third time we used Rivera’s they also to care of my parents when they passed Alfredo D Garcia and Mary Ann Bernal Garcia.
Marc remembered my family.

Our family has had two beautiful services for my in laws facilitated by Mr. Marc Gonzalez at Rivera’s Funeral home in Mcallen. When my brother unexpectedly passed away I knew I wanted to have the service at Rivera’s. I called the funeral home and asked for Mr. Marc Gonzalez; even though it was late he assured me he would be there to receive my brother. From that moment on Marc and Krystal treated us like family. Krystal did an amazing job helping me organize the photos that went best with the music that I picked. She created a beautiful video that our family can look back on. When we met with Marc to make arrangements he was compassionate and listened to how I wanted to honor my brother. My brother was a Green Bay Packers Fan and I wanted to incorporate it into the service. Mr. Gonzalez did his best to help accommodate the Green bay sport items I bought, where they fit and looked best. Marc knew how important it was to our family and he went above and beyond to help make it happen at the service and continued on to the cemetery. My family and I were deeply touched. Thank you Marc Gonzalez and Rivera’s Funeral home the service was exactly what our family envisioned; it was indeed a celebration of my brother’s life.

The Pizaña and Chavez families would like to express their most sincere gratitude to Marc Gonzalez and staff at Rivera funeral home. I went into this situation blind and not knowing what to do or say after my beloved mother passed suddenly at the age of 63. Marc’s guidance helped the painful process become so smooth and peaceful, at a difficult time that I just wasn’t prepared for! He explained everything step by step. His professionalism and kindness is outstanding, he made us feel at ease and we knew our momma was in excellent hands. Rivera funeral home is outstanding and they are not there to sell you products but they are there to help the families in this transition in life! Thank you for all the support Marc Gonzalez and beautiful staff at Rivera funeral home, I am forever grateful for your outstanding commitment to our community in McAllen!

My grandfather, Joseph A Sahadi was the first one from out family to have a service there at Rivera funeral home back in 1996. We have always had our services there with them. I never thought as the eldest from my siblings that I too, would one day be making arrangements for my father, Jose Alonzo who sadly passed away on May 25th of this year. It was a very hard thing for me to do as I didn’t even know where to start. From the moment my dads eyes closed and he was no longer with us, to the moment we were able to say goodbye, Krystal, Mr. Rivera, Mark Gonzalez, and all of their staff not only treated us with dignity and respect but exceeded our humble expectations and made this experience a lot smoother for my family and I. They facilitated what would normally be a stressful and almost impossible thing to do, saying goodbye one final time. It has been one of the hardest things I have ever been involved in planning but thanks to them it was an easy transition. I will forever hold undying gratitude for the Rivera family and their lovey staff. Words cannot ever truly express how thankful I am for everything they did for us. 🙏🏼

My grandmother recently passed away, and helping my father, aunts, and uncles choose the right funeral home was very stressful to say the least. I want to thank the Rivera family, Marc Gonzalez, and all of the staff for being so kind, understanding, friendly, and caring. They did a remarkable job taking care of my family and our needs during this depressing time. Their funeral service met and exceeded all of our expectations. I would highly recommend Rivera Funeral Homes to everyone, they make you feel welcomed and at home in a time of heartbreak. Rivera Funeral Homes is beyond excellent at what they do.

My father Armando J Rosales recently passed away and we were very fortunate to find Rivera Funeral Home. We had gone to other funeral homes in McAllen and it was very depressing to make every decision for the funeral and then get an estimated cost. At Rivera Funeral Home they offered us a package service with everything included, everything from the coffin to the arrangement of the honor guard at the burial site. They even had contact information for mariachi's, singer, and someone who would preform the rosary. They even offer 24 hour viewing. This was very helpful and it allowed my family to process my fathers death in a peaceful manner.
Service was above and beyond any expectation. The 2 days we were there, we truly felt like we were home and the instructions given during the Catholic mass and actual burial really helped. All the staff there added a certain class to my fathers funeral, which is indescribable in any words.
If you are looking for a traditional Mexican funeral, were you feel your are at home in the final days with your loved one, Then there is no other choice
