Our mother/mother-in-law, Rev. Barbara Lee, passed away on August 25, 2016. From the initial phone call, to our arrival at home after the interment, the staff of Davis Funeral Home were professional, comforting, and patient. They exceeded ALL of our expectations. Javoke arrived at the hospice with an hour after being called. He was sensitive to our feelings and handled our mom with care and compassion. Cersheila Kelly Brown did mom's hair and made her look like a rock star😀. The drivers were wonderful and patient with our large family. Javoke and Jennifer Terrell ensured that this difficult time of transition was smooth and uncomplicated. No request was too great or impossible. The passion the Terrell's possess is evident in every aspect of the home going process. They have earned our family's business, both near and far, for life. If you are looking for a funeral home that will celebrate your loved one's life, while exceeding your expectations, look no further than Davis Funeral Home. Thank you for all you've done, The Lees and Mainors.
