"Dunbar handled my mother's funeral, which was so very nice, and now for my dad's. My husband and I have made our own funeral arrangements at Dunbar also to make things easier on our children. I highly recommend Dunbar funeral home in Irmo. Exceptional!"

"This has been my first experience as an adult losing a loved one and for it to have been my dad makes it so much worse. The staff at Dunbar could not have been more helpful and caring as my family took on decisions and tasks we had never faced. I will be forever grateful for the warmth and guidance we received from everyone we encountered."
