My experience with the Bruce R. Hawkins funeral home was outstanding. Melanie handled my mother’s home-going. Although there is clearly a strong team in place, I felt that Melanie handled every detail personally. She was kind, caring, professional and knowledgeable. In addition her patience and attention to detail- was invaluable and so appreciated. My mother had been ill, however she looked absolutely beautiful and the service was perfect. Melanie’s ability to keep the funeral progressing on time, while being respectful and patient with my sister and I during our last moments with our mother, will never be forgotten. I highly recommend this funeral home.

It is with high praise that I wish to commend the Bruce Hawkins Funeral Home for the services provided for my mother Lolia T. Thomas that exceeded my expectations. From the moment we met Edward Gethers, he thoroughly and compassionately took us through the process that was seamless from start to finish for ensuring that my mother's home going would be decent and in order and it was!! Mom's body was absolutely beautiful on the the day that we saw her before the funeral! The staff that was at the funeral with Bruce Hawkins at the helm, guided the viewing and the burial with such care, professionalism and timeliness. The pianist and soloist that they provided were awesome. The words that Bruce Hawkins spoke at the burial signifying the meaning of laying flowers on the casket were enlightening, encouraging and comforting. Many persons who attended the service commented on what a beautiful service it was and indeed it was!! Some of those persons present were impressed enough to want to have Bruce Hawkins do their services as well. Thank you to the Bruce Hawkins Funeral Home!!
