“Dear Greg and Sylvia, Thank you for the lovely poem. We know that you have a close, caring family and it certainly shows. George and i always have a warm feeling for family oriented people. Nothing is so important as a loving, supportive family. It is extra thoughtful of you to think of us families who will celebrate our first Christmas without our complete family. It helps us to know that we were so close to our parents while we were together,. We have always said we don't know ho God chooses which children are to go with which parents. One thing for sure, he sure gave us the very best. Thank you for all the extras you did for us. We were so thankful we could stay with our mom the evening before the funeral. thank you again for thinking of us. you certainly are a special couple. Your staff are very caring people too. Sincerely Shirley and George Reed”

“Dear Greg and Sylvia, Thank you for all of your kindness and attentive assistance with my father's funeral. Also I want to thank you for your kind note and for the chance to know "first-hand" about my mothers relationship at the old hospital. Last, it was such a pleasure to meet the two of you. Even though under strained circumstances, it is clear that you have a special relationship and a great family. That says volumes to Gloria and me! With kind regards, Gene”

“I would like to express special thanks to two young men who work for you. You had the funeral for Gene Hildreth (our daughter-in-law's father) last Wednesday. our daughter-in-law lives in St. Louis. One of her friends came from St. Louis for the funeral. We had he leave her car at your funeral home and go to the cemetery and the Hildreth's home with us. When we returned to the funeral home Wednesday afternoon she had a flat tire. I went into the funeral home to call my on at the Hildreths and the two young men offered to change the tire. They promptly got the tire changed. We are very grateful to your two employees. They were very gracious and considerate. our daughter-in-law's friend was on her way back to St. Louis in a very short time. Thanks again Barbara Ferguson”
