Over the years I've pondered the meaning of trials and sorrow that my loved ones or I have endured. Some believe there are lessons to learn from hardship. I agree. In many instances we learn compassion, empathy, faith, trust, and humility. Our own choices will often lead to natural consequences that...

The experience I had with this funeral home was unsatisfactory. There return calls when left message was poor. There was no communication between the employees.

I cannot recommend this funeral home at all. The older gentleman who runs it has zero compassion. He talked about how he didn't like the job, couldn't wait to retire, showed off his new watch. The thing that really still bothers me is at the cemetery he was standing behind the navy guard handing me a flag with paperwork in hand, I don't remember the navy mans speech as I was being distracted by this sims guy leaning over his shoulder waiting for him to get done. The minute the guard handed me the flag and left there was this man handing me a flag holder and thanking me for my business. My daughter had broken down on my shoulder when the flag was presented, and I couldn't even comfort her because this guy was in such a rush to get out of there, I had to u hug my daughter to accept the paper work. Everyone noticed but because of the situation didn't intercede. It was appealing, and that's the memory Of my husbands service I'm stuck with. I had to leave the room several times during the planning stage because of his insensitivity, and let my sister speak for me. I looked a headstones there but was so mad at this man I decided to choose one later, and I'm glad I did. I went to wire grass memorial for the headstone and was quoted a price two and a half times cheaper and nicer then the one sims quoted me. I highly recommend speaking to wiregrass memorial before going to sims. They don't do the service but can tell you who is good or not.

Cunningham Funeral Home in Ocala, Florida provided my family with exemplary service at the time of our loss. They not only provided professional service, most of all they were compassionate, patient, and understanding; they exceeded every expectation. They assisted us with our every need as it pertained to the arrangements for my mother. I highly recommend this funeral home.

The funeral home itself was very clean. I must say though Steve Rains looked nothing like himself. The makeup looked caked on, like the person that did him didnt know what they where doing. His hair was also not the way he wore it either. I probably wouldn't use this company in the future due to Steve not looking like himself at all.
