Bright Funeral Home in Wake Forest, NC


I wanted to thank Bright Funeral Home from the bottom of my heart. My mother passed away right before the New Year's Eve making it the toughest holiday by far for my family. My mother was battling terminal illness and was exhausted by her disease for months: she became very thin and fragile as the end of her life journey was approaching. Before she passed away, not only she was deeply worried about how we would be able to afford the funeral financially, but also about how unrecognizable she would look from her illness. The financial situation hit us hard, however, Bright FH helped us to find the best solution to our problem, and helped us to take care of things along the way. I cannot thank enough Mr. Christopher Ellis, who not only made us feel welcome and secure, but did an astounding job on making my mother look as a sleeping angel. We had a small private ceremony, but it was very sophisticated and perfectly planned. Staff was respectful from the moment they arrived at our home until the moment we said our last goodbyes at the Memorial Park. Thank you!

Our family was overwhelmed with the support we received from Bright Funeral Home during the loss of our brother. A special thanks to Randy who guided us with care and kindness during this difficult time.

My wife, Polly, passed away on June 1, 2020, in the midst of the confusing period of COVID - 19. While her illness was not related to COVID, the logistical turmoil created by regulations governing funeral services were a nightmare. Not only were they restricting to Bright Funeral Home, but to our church, as well. Plans for appropriate service venues had to be changed several times, as well as being coordinated with an out-of-state burial service already scheduled, including transportation of the body and travel arrangements for several members of the clergy and funeral home staff. As changes occurred, Bright Funeral Home immediately stepped up and resolved these problems, almost transparently. In the end, the two visitation services, the funeral service in Wake Forest, and the graveside service in Mississippi went flawlessly. And the venue here in Wake Forest couldn't have been nicer. I couldn't have wished for a greater level of caring, support, and professionalism than I experienced in dealing with the Brights and their staff. This was truly five-star service!

I am shocked and saddened to learn of Greg’s passing. Gregg was a kind, carding man who was so generous and was always willing to do anyone a favor. He will be sorely missed by all who knew him both personally and professionally. Rest well, Greg. You earned it.
