"I was making arrangements in Wilson from Florida and Melanie Jordan was exceptional. We found it easier to text or email and she was very responsive, answered every question and made suggestions where I needed them. She made a very difficult and emotional situation very easy and the service was excellent. And Pastor Cliff was excellent. He took the information I gave him about my Dad and created a very personalized and heartfelt service. Thank you all very much!"
