I was very displeased with the services rendered by the Smith Funeral Service INC My relative looked horrible and she was poorly taken care of even if it was short notice never in my life would I recommend this company to anyone. I am deeply dissatisfied. I felt so much disrespect because the funeral was barely over before they pushed her into the ground. These people should be ashamed of themselves for what they did. I WILL NEVER LOOK TO THIS COMPANY AGAIN!!!!!

Today is the anniversary of the passing of our father on March 3, 2014. When the mail arrived we had a card from Gary and Patsy Comer, honoring the anniversary of his passing. We remembered how thoughtful and gentle they were to us when we were so vulnerable in our sorrow. The quality of service that Gary provided us when we needed him is extraordinary.
