  • We were blessed to work with you and your staff during the hard season death brought to our family. Our loss of Larry, a courageous and bold husband and father, has been eased through the manner in which you cared for our family and provided such excellent service. The combination of your professionalism and caring heart is remarkably impressive. We sincerely thank you. Everyone in the family boasted of your good work. You have served this family well and we appreciate you. There have been several occasions we have conveyed the merits of you and your business to others who have expressed need for a mortuary. I pray that our compliments will be returned as customers, and that Father God bless you and your business with favor in the eyes of men. Grace and Peace on you, Shunn and your family

  • I was so stressed behind my mother’s service plans (in the hospital). Metropolitan, you put us at ease and kept us calm and gave us the best. I have helped others plan funerals of over 15 years and it must be said, you are guys are out of the box with service. Metropolitan is personal, give dire...ct attention to details and know ‘the flip’ what they are doing. I felt so good that our friends said, “they gave us water and snacks to our kids – who does that” “they were polite and nice to us”. My family got out of control, but you stepped in and handle things like pros. We will tell everyone how great Metropolitan is – we want you to blow up! My mom was in the hospital for 6 months, she looked damn good.

  • Phone Call: “Hello, I know you don’t remember me from many months ago, but I remember you. You were so helpful and kind when I talked about you doing my dad’s service. I wanted to thank you even though we did not you use your mortuary. My sister decided on another place, but they (the other mortua...ry) were not as together as you. It was chaotic, they were rude. I don’t want to speak badly of another place, but I regret not following my heart to use you guys. Everything that could go wrong did go wrong (sobbing, tears) . He really deserved better. Mr. Newbern you are now my recommendation. You know how to make people feel comfortable during a difficult time and I know the service would have been better.”
