"This was a very traumatic and sad time for me and my family, but Kenny made every effort to make things seamless. This was my first time planning a funeral service and my mother was my love. It was hard losing her so suddenly. However my experience was tempered with kindness and understanding. Thanks Dunbar Funeral Home, Kenny and all the staff who were involved with my mom's home going service."
