In the last 7 months, I have lost my Son Dave and his Grandmother. I want to personally thank Skip Young and Family Funeral Home for the caring and professional handling of my family. They take the time to personally help you through a difficult time. Skip is just like the name Family Funeral Home. He has become family. Remember them should you ever need a Funeral Home. You won't be disappointed. Thank you. Roger Bynum

George Edwards August 06, 2021

My family and I just went through the hardest two weeks of our lives. On March 17th, we received the tragic news that our son passed away. Skip Young was there for our family from Day 1. When we first found out, he was available to answer any and all questions (he was on scene of the accident). When I was unable to get a hold of law enforcement, Skip answered his phone (no matter the time) and just provided a calming and knowledgeable view point throughout the entire process. Family Funeral home (name fits perfectly because they treat you like family) is very professional and knows what they are doing. You do not feel pressured to spend a certain amount of money, they just want to make sure you are comfortable with your decisions. Everything and everyone is organized, calm, and professional. From the viewing to the burial, they will be there every step of the way and made it seamless. No question is off limits and I can’t thank this funeral home enough. They were a blessing to work with. Even though we live in a small town, Family Funeral home is not running a small town operation. Thank you, Skip Young and team! We are eternally grateful!

Mari Kimbrel March 29, 2021

Skip & Family, Thank you so much for honoring our son Dave. It means a lot for the love, support and care you've shown our family. The last thing we expected was to let go of a child. Our hearts are broken, but with God's love we will mend. We love you all. Roger, Carrie & Family of Davis Bynum

Mr. Skip & Mrs. Paula, I apologize it has taken me a little while to express my thankfulness to you both, any words I can come up with just don't seem to be enough.

Everything from the hospital pick up to the final good bye, was the absolute best of this worst situation. You both made this difficult time for us easier to handle. I truly thank you from the bottom of my heart for the peaceful closure you were able to provide us. Thank you, Lauren
