  • Powers Family

    August 14, 2018

    I just wanted to thank everyone at the funeral home for being such an enormous blessing when the Henry family lost their children. What a special way to reach a home and community in need. It is absolutely unheard of that a business donates its time and resources the way your funeral home has. The evangelical community in several states are thanking God and asking Him to abundantly bless your extensive efforts to comfort this family, much less relieve them of the financial burden of burying these precious children. We certainly pray you are rewarded a thousand fold. May the joy of the Lord be your strength as you deal with other families in need. You have blessed so many lives. God bless your staff and owners. We appreciate you more than words can express. I don't know this family personally, but know they needed you. You came through for them! Thank you! Read more

They made it easy to pre-plan. I had no idea how effortless it was to actually talk about my final wishes and put them on paper. The best thing about it that I never realized, was that the consultation was free. They were also very professional and personal at the same time. If I had to recommend Haley-McGinnis, I would. By talking with them about your wishes, you can rest assured that when you do pass they will be respectfully carried out." Read more
