"I want to thank our funeral director Terry Wilson and the entire staff at Ridout's Valley Chapel. Terry and the staff were extraordinarily professional, compassionate, caring, thoughtful, prompt and made this tragic situation as stress-free as anyone could've possibly done. These guys are rock stars and I would highly recommend them to anyone who is in need of their services. You will definitely feel like you're being cared for in the most loving, thoughtful and professional way you could imagine. Thank you Terry and the entire staff, God bless you guys, stay safe, be well. Sending rich blessings, Garrett Lambert and the Lambert and Milstead family."
