“Since my mother passed, I could not express my deep feelings for what you and your family did for me and my mother. Tommy, thank you and your family and staff for being so GRACIOUS, MERCIFUL AND KIND, in every way. From making the removal, to arranging the funeral (UNDER CHARGING), to providing a good cemetery for my Mother’s body to rest, I am deeply, deeply grateful. Her remains were so well prepared for viewing that I experienced the presence of GOD. You are truly blessed! GOD allowed me to see his GREAT, AWESOME POWER through you. Thank you.” – Alan K. Faulks
