Dear Dave & Family:
I am so grateful for the amazing expressions of love during the time of Sherri's homecoming. We have truly been blessed with a wonderful family, church family, and incredible friends who have been so supportive, both during the last few months of Sherri's fight with liver disease, and during her passing into the presence of Jesus.
Thank you so much for the beautiful flower arrangement in honor of Sherri's life. She loved flowers and the arrangements all were so beautiful. The beauty of God's creation reminds us of His care of us.
May God continue to bless you in the days ahead. Thanks again for loving us and for expressing that love in such a tangible way!
Pastor Bill Campbell
Your organization does so many things well; I don’t know how you pull it off!
I wanted to give you two points of positive feedback:
First, as you already know, people really appreciate the pictures that you make available. I just did a funeral last week and widow walked in and saw the picture of her husband and just stopped and beamed with joy and I have the experience all the time.
Also, I wanted to tell you thank you for keeping obituaries and memorial information on your webpage for as long as you do. I am often looking for details and the newspaper puts it up one day and then it is gone and it is just great to have that information.
Thanks for all you do with such excellence.
Pastor Rick Hawks
My step father knew he was dying of cancer. He had arranged his funeral service with Britton prior to his death on June 11 2011. He wanted just a family services but deserved the works. He was a Marine a Firefighter and a great humanitarian to everyone. So with all your associates help Britton, Mark and young Mr. Flemming dad had the ultimate heros send off ever. The Firemans send off in Old Engine 42, the Marines standing gaurd at dads side, the bag pipes at the service. Mark and Mr. Flemming drove dad up to Angola, took all the flowers and were so caring and professional throughout.We were so thankful they were there with us. These things happened because you made it happen. I just want to THANK YOU ALL from my family to yours for the over and above love we all felt on dads special day. I know dad loved the view from above. Sincerely L.S. and A. R.
Wanted to write you to express how impressed me and my family were with how Britton Claghorn handled my Mom's funeral. When we walked in to meet with Britton initially, my Dad told Britton that he did not like talking to guys in a suit and tie. Britton left and came back without his tie and jacket, which made my Dad more relaxed. My Dad was impress by that.
Britton handled every detail as if he were taking care of his own family. He truly cares about every detail of the service and it's planning. We felt as if he was always available if any all of our many questions. It was very sweet of him to come in on his day off to ensure the service went off without a hitch. During the service and burial, I would have thoughts on something that needed to be done, but as I looked over Britton was already taking care of whatever my thought was. Many members of my family kept discussing how great Britton facilitated Mom's affairs. He made me feel at ease knowing he was handling Mom's preservation. He painted my Mom's fingernails the day of her funeral with the color she always used.
I just thought Britton deserved some recognition for all of the effort and hardwork he put into making my Mom's service perfect. If you have to go through something like this, Britton is the guy you want helping.
Thank you so much, Thomas Family
Dave and Doug,
Just a note to let you know how impressed I am with Britton, Lucas, Brett, and Taron,
Unfortunately, for the first time in my life, I was asked to help with funeral arrangements. My very dear friend, Greg passed unexpectedly Friday, he and his wife, Robin had not yet addressed the issue's of pre-planning or a will.
We met with Britton Saturday morning, with Robin's brother, sister, and brother-in-law. Britton covered all questions and concerns, listened, spoke, and directed.Lucas and Brett stopped in and offered comfort to my friends,as we sat in the arrangement center, Taron was going to help Robin select the burial site Sunday afternoon. Lucas helped set up Foster Park as I arrived with the memories Robin had selected for the viewing on Monday. And Britton stopped in on his way home that evening. And David, your appearance at the service was much appreciated by all.
Please give "Thanks'" to all that help behind the scene, that never receive a "Thank You !"
I know that this is the profession that these men and woman have chosen, but to be involved , when I am setting at the table, I cannot express the ease that they have instilled in Robin, her family, and myself.
Robin commented just yesterday that " I did not have to worry about one thing, Mc Comb's handled it all!!! "
Yes, we have all became friends over the past few years, but for the first time, I experienced what I always have known.
Thank You All for Being The Best in my Friends time of need,
Just a note to let you know how satisfied with my choice, I am of choosing your funeral home when my husband passed away. Your facility is beautiful and our director could not have been more helpful or thoughtful. I also appreciated the follow up with the aftercare counselor who came to my home. Again, thank you. I will recommend you to others.
Thank you for your kindness and guidance during our difficult time. We feel you all went way above and beyond to make this as easy as possible for us. You did such a beautiful job. Words alone can never be enough. (Mark M.)
My step-dad passed away the end of March – and his memorial service was this past weekend. My mom and I had to come to the arrangement center to make the plans and we worked with one of your Funeral Directors. He was very kind and personable – and worked thru all the details with us. While dad’s death was not a surprise – it still was a sad time with lots of details to work out. Everything went perfectly with his service. We were talking about the service that evening and we all agreed that McCombs does such a great job – always behind the scenes – but always amazingly there to answer questions or be of service. (Sandy S.)
Thank you to all the staff who in any way assisted with the funeral preparations for my father. Your caring and compassion helped me and my family through this difficult time. You met every need and detail and made sure the family's wishes were acknowledged. You also attended to our physical comfort which was appreciated. You were caring but not intrusive.(Wendy)
Very helpful and understanding about what we wanted in a service. No pressure to add more to a service. What we wanted, we got. I thank you for that. They were kind and helpful. We wanted the extra flowers taken to a nursing home. They took care of everything for us. I was very pleased with the service. Our guests were treated beautifully. We only had a small service but we were treated with dignity and care. The whole staff was helpful and professional.
I just wanted to write to you because a year ago today was my husband’s funeral. I had originally gone to what I prefer to now call the evil place in New Haven but ended up at McComb's. I will forever be grateful I did! You treated me with dignity and respect and I will never forget that. You also gave me the wonderful picture of my husband that has brought me so much joy and comfort the past 12 months. Thank you for going above and beyond when you did not have to! (Rebecca A)
