I would like to truly extend a heartfelt thank you to Debbie and Tom...the kindness and compassion shown to our family during our most vulnerable time was just above and beyond! They treated my Mother's end of life with dignity, respect and a gentle, caring touch that I will always remember. May God continue to bless you both!

I'm from out of state but wanted to post a message at the passing of one of my very best friends. I was having trouble getting it posted and asked Gary if he would help. He was so kind to take the time to do it. Obviously, he exemplifies the quality care of J. Verne Wood Funeral Home!

Three days prior to our planned funeral & without notice, the church informed us of required changes. Desperate for assistance, we called J Verne Wood for advice. (We had never spoken to them before and knew no one there.) Tom took our call, provided us guidance and offered his assistance to get us through a difficult time. The J. Verne team went so far as to provide us what we needed at the church on the day of the funeral at no charge. Why? They understand this is how you build a good reputation in the community and attract new customers. They also understand what a family is going during a stressful time & they exhibit a high level of compassion and attention to detail. We highly recommend the J.Verne Wood team. Their facility is simply beautiful and their team could not be more gracious. When the time comes, please work with J. Verne Wood.

The care and support and comfort that J Verne Wood Funeral has shown my family is so above and beyond - I just wanted to let folks know. They covered my husband's funeral services and also my daughter's memorial service and all who attended felt the comfort and understanding and care from the director, to the staff, to the folks that assist with letting us know where to go and what to do - it is all top notch. This is a very stressful time for families and friends and I feel J Verne Wood went that extra mile and we all felt very taken care of and our desires for our lost one's services were understood and completed as we wanted. They all went above and beyond to guide me through this unknown journey and made it all very easy. I even had a flower allergy situation and they made sure that was noted and took extra measures to make me comfortable and at ease. Thanks so much to Tom and his team - you are the best and I tell all who find themselves in that situation to use your services when the time comes, you will be very pleased you did. Thank You. Thank You. Thank You.

J. Verne Wood went above and beyond in the attention to detail and the tender care given to our mother upon her passing. They treated us like family, as though they were caring for their own loved one. A special thank you to Tom and Debby for the everything , from the planning of moms funeral, to the execution. The process was so smooth. Our family would recommend J. Verne Wood to all our friends and family when it is time for their earthly departure.
