“Very respectful and professional. Dealing with Gov. Codey in person was a real pleasure. The time we spent making arrangements for the funeral was a lot less than I expected and it was well spent. We, the family, did not have to worry about anything. Everything was handled for us.”

“Your support has meant so much to me. You really are excellent at your job and a wonderful person. I really appreciate all that you did to make things a bit more bearable.”

“Excellent job by Gov. Codey and Kelly Carey. A fabulous job. My family has been in the funeral business 100 years and I was impressed.”

“Outstanding. Thank you for providing exceptional service. A++”

“My experience was excellent and I would highly recommend your funeral home to others. The staff were especially kind and helpful.”

“(Everyone) was so very helpful in making all the arrangements for my dad’s funeral. I was coming from another state and the funeral home we were going to use had closed. (You) were great in making things go smoothly.”
