Losing someone is a hard situation. In my family's situation, we were fortunate to be with my mother until the final moments of her life. There is really no way to prepare for the emotional side of the journey; however, I am truly grateful that on the logistics and coordination side, we chose to use Messinger.


From the moment they answered the phone, Melissa provided amazing support. They were truly amazing when retrieving my mother and not enough good things could be said about the service. I have been to several final viewings in my life, and when my mother stated she wanted to have a final viewing I was worried. With my previous experiences coupled with the current aesthetics of my mother I was genuinely worried of how my mother would look during the final viewing.


It is the day after my mother's service and I couldn't be more certain that choosing Messinger was the right thing to do. They really took their time with my mother’s appearance and the final viewing was remarkable. The way they coordinated the entire service was done with complete grace and class.


I never wish someone would ever be in the position of my family however, due to the circumstances; there is no way I will ever look back at this experience and imagine a way it could have been handled more delicately and beautifully. I highly recommend Messinger Mortuary Service in Arizona. Thank you tremendously for this service.

I can’t say enough about what a wonderful job they did with my mother’s arrangements. They really went above and beyond. It was a horrible time and they understood, making sure my wishes were handled with respect.


We have used Messenger for 4 family members over the past 30 years. They are always kind, compassionate, professional and reliable.

Dealing with the death of a loved one is no easy task. I am grateful for the staff here at Messinger. They were extremely knowledgeable and comforting when we were requesting services for our mother during a pandemic. They followed the CDC guidelines and allowed us to have services for our mother in a timely fashion. With so much to worry about in a time of sorrow it was nice to have them guide us through. I highly recommend their services.


Our family was very impressed by the superb professional treatment of both our family and of my father's remains by Messinger Mortuary on Indian School Road in Scottsdale. All actions were completed by the Messinger team with dignity and meticulous care to ensure that our family's preferences were fulfilled. In particular, we would like to thank David Raaen for his compassionate management throughout. I would highly recommend Messinger to any grieving family in central Arizona.


A family member recently passed away. The folks at Messinger were very informative and helpful in coordinating the cremation, ordering death certificates, etc. and in answering any and all questions I had regarding the end-of-life process.

I highly, highly recommend Messinger Mortuaries. I’ve had dealings with for over 35 years, which including working with them as an outside contractor and having 6 members of my family's funerals, burials, and cremations there in the last 20 years and I can say without a doubt they are the best in AZ. I would not trust anyone else. I would not want anyone else. They have upheld this high level of high-quality service for as long as I can remember and I'm confident they will carry it on in the future. They're facilities are always in pristine condition and they are able to do anything you need from special religious and cultural burial & cremation needs, as well as any size group, inside or outside. They have a florist and places to have memorials, a mausoleum, community urn, and a beautiful lake at the Shea cemetery. They have facilities in Payson, Fountain Hills, North & South Scottsdale and they might have one in Sun City but I can’t say for sure. I can however say again they literally can handle any request you have. It makes it so easy at such a horrible time. They even handle cremations & urns for pets. They've done 2 of mine. I'm not trying to make this sound like a sales pitch, I just want to let everyone know how wonderful Messinger Mortuaries and their employees are.


Outstanding service can't say enough about Messingers!


This mortuary was so amazing, in every way. So sensitive and accommodating. They made a stressful time as stress free for me as possible. So professional but so friendly. I would recommend this mortuary to everyone. They were there to help me plan the first funeral I had ever even been to, and made things so easy.
