    Dear Wheeler & Woodlief Family, I would like to take this time to personally thank you guys for your true professionalism. The manner in which you all handled my grandmother's funeral was impeccable! Your office staff was as helpful as they could possibly be. Ms. Vicki and Ms. Rachel went above and beyond the call of duty to help our family in every way possible. It is very nice to see people who really care about what they do. This area should be grateful to have a family run business like the David's are running. In closing, I just wanted to say thanks again for your true professionalism and kindness in our time of loss. Special thanks to Dexter for all of his efforts.

    Royal, I wanted to send a short note just to say thanks to you, Jerry and the staff for your handling of my father's services. Two services in two states probably made things more complicated than they are usually. My father would have been delighted to have seen the honor he was given by the bow ties worn by your staff! Please accept our sincere gratitude for your services and professionalism.

    Hey Royal: It's been 2 weeks since you and your family helped our family and I just wanted to thank you again. Working with you was a joy even in our sadness. You are in the right business. Thank you for your graciousness and kindness during our grief. You and your staff helped us throughout the process and the fact that you all honored my father by wearing bow ties at the service and the graveside was something that warmed our hearts. Thank you again for making us feel comfortable and loved during our time of sadness. I pray that every family that you work with feels as loved as we did. Blessings, Ann

    Dear Royal, Kemp & Staff, Thank you all for your kindness and the warm, graceful way in which you conduct business. I told Dana I heard cheerful laughter from her office while we were there, and it did my heart good to know that we were with people who enjoyed each other's company, and worked professionally together. Royal, we will always be grateful to you, Kemp and the staff for the way you treated our mother and us. The memorial bulletin and the DVD will be lifetime keepsakes, and Dana and Vickie you both did outstanding work putting them together. Thank you all, you are a quality team, and you made a difficult task much easier to manage. God Bless!

    Dear Mr. David, It was a pleasure to meet you several weeks ago. I wanted to express my sincere appreciation to your company for the support and caring before, during and following my husband's funeral. I especially wanted to mention the support by Kim, Rachel and especially Grady who exceeded our expectations and were more than helpful during that time. All three made the process less stressful on our family during our loss. I will definitely recommend Wheeler & Woodlief Funeral Home based on the positive experience provided by your staff and know you will be successful as new members of our community.
