I rated fair for attention to detail because two paragraphs were deleted from the obituary in the Sunday paper. However, the manager was very kind and understanding and compensated us for the mistake. We were overall very pleased with how he handled the situation.

I would like to complement you on the effort of Laura in the preparation and carrying out of the funeral service for my sister-in-law. Frank Crumpler, the minister Laura provided for the graveside service, delivered a very moving and uplifting message to all the family members in attendance. Again, I thank you and Laura for the excellent service provided.

With immediate family living out of state, it is a challenge to plan a funeral from a distance. However, it was made easier by admin. leader Cy Hume and James Stewart (point man) who stepped forward to help us plan the service of our beloved nephew John D. Counts. They listened and ably guided the family in each step of the process. Our objective was twofold: To honor God and the memory of our nephew. I am glad to say that our goal was met and exceeded. The inspirational service ministered both to family and guests alike and enabled us to cope better with our intense grief. As a military veteran, John would have been very pleased. I heartily recommend A. S. Turner to any family that seeks to honor their loved one in the closing chapter of his/her life.

Emma was excellent in every way. By the time all was said and done, she felt like "family." She handled all the details as though she were caring for one of her own family and that was so much appreciated. Many of our family members have depended on A.S. Turner in the past and they always were excellent. We could not have asked for any better service. We will use them again.

My first "contact" with your organization was finding the folder from A.S. Turner & Sons in my father's safety deposit box after his death. I took this folder to meet with someone at your facility to assist in fulfilling my father's burial wishes he had described in that found material. The representative with whom my sister and I met and dealt with was Emma. I must say, I believe Emma was a tremendous help in her assistance of not only navigating the unfamiliar procedures of the services provided by your company, but with many other unforeseen issues related to a family member dying. Emma's patience, understanding, and attention to detail turned what I thought would be a difficult and trying task, into a uncomplicated and smoothly flowing experience from the time we had the first meeting until my father was laid to rest at the National Cemetery in Canton. I would like to thank Emma and all the others at your facility who took such good care of my father from picking him up at the hospital, preparing him for his viewing, and transporting him to the church and then to his grave. I also would like to give thanks to all involved who took such good care of me and my family during this time.

I have attended 2 funerals at your facility. Both experiences have been beautiful. My first funeral I was only 14 but you guys did a great job at sending a dear friend of mine off. The second funeral was my brother. I am the last surviving member of my immediate family. I felt lost and didn't know where to begin. Laura made me feel like I had nothing to worry about. She took me under her wing & I had a sense of relief.
