"Wm H. Scott funeral home came highly recommended from church friends. Melvin and the staff are professional & kind and helped everything go smoothly. I especially appreciated the chance to dress my mom, before her cremation, in her religious clothing in private and in a clean and peaceful surrounding at the funeral home. I met Mel one year ago when my father passed away; we returned in 2020 when mom passed, as Mel is wonderful."

"I would just caution that if you purchase some kind of prepaid plan for transportation of the body that you know exactly what it covers. I thought we were covered but the plan only covered if you died 30 miles from your home... not from where you plan to be buried so I had to pay upwards of $2,000. to get the body transported back."
