What the Families We Serve Say...

Michael, I’ve served in ministry for over 30 years and never have I met a more compassionate, loving funeral director. You listened to stories, shed tears with us, and entered into our family’s loss with such empathy. Every detail of my Mom’s arrangements were attended to within our comfort level- even the day after your surgery! Thank you for your willingness to minister to families during such a painful time in life.

Kathy Rexroad, daughter of Dollie Patterson
