"The more arrangements you make in advance the less stressful a funeral will be. So many decisions must be made at this time, eliminating the big decisions will be a big relief."

"Our family appreciated the quality of service we received from the staff. The service was beautiful and we could feel the love of our mother that day and through the photo slideshow played during visitation. Thank you to the staff."

"During this sad time it was so comforting to know that Smith's, and especially the funeral director DJ Plunk, took the time and care to make sure we felt our needs were met. DJ answered phone calls and text immediately. Even though my father had been in a nursing home, it is still a time of mourning when he passed. DJ was able to coordinate all the things we needed given my Dad was out of town when he passed. It was seamless and every detail of the arrangements and burial were just above my expectations. DJ Plunk and Smith's and Travis Hunt were able to make sure my Dad was given full military honors and coordinated the honor guard, taps, and the flag presentation and frame . It was so meaningful and they had handled all the details for our family. I think that the thing that really sets Smith's apart is the care you individually receive during your time of grief. They treat you like a member of your family which is so comforting."
