  • Everyone was most caring and helpful in every way. I don't think they could have done more to ease a stressful occasion. They already had another service scheduled at the same time we needed to have our sister's service and they all pulled together to have two services at the same time. I was most impressed. Garrick Smith, Bryan Winslow and Jimmy Ollis were very helpful to us.

  • The entire staff was very accommodating. They made us feel like we were top priority and did not rush or make us feel like we had to hurry through anything. Garrick went above and beyond to make us all comfortable. The staff at Reins-Sturdivant did for us what we could not do for ourselves when lost our mom.

  • I felt the staff members were professional, yet friendly and down-to-earth (not stuffy or overly formal or reserved). I never felt pressured to purchase or spend more than I felt was necessary just because I could have. Overall, I feel that staff members made a painful experience that everyone dreads to have to experience as comfortable and as easy as possible. So thank you to everyone at Reins-Sturdivant Funeral Home.

  • Honoring Life

    It's important to take the time to acknowledge the unique life of the deceased: the individuality of their personality, and the special moments of their life's path. Not just for them, but for you; it affirms the relationship, and leads to healing after loss. Honoring their life is truly an act of love - for the both of you.
