"During the difficult time of losing a loved one, the staff at George A. Smith funeral services were very understanding, professional, and caring. The service was flawless and the facility very nice. DJ Plunk was our main contact and was a pleasure to work with. He prepared the body and I am sure my Mother would have been pleased with her appearance."

"After losing my mother/best friend, having to be the 'rock' of the family wasn't an easy task. Joshua Englert was absolutely wonderful and comforting during one of the worst times of my life. I think he was God's way of getting me through it all and was a complete blessing. I cannot say enough about his helpfulness and demeanor and I hope God blesses him tenfold."
