Yesterday our family had a celebration of the life of my father, Hugh Bowling. This was held at Scanlin Funeral Home. From the moment we started the process, Jim Scanlin was kind, compassionate and caring. He and his entire staff were wonderful in helping us navigate these infrequently encountered waters with an ease and gentleness that is deeply appreciated. We requested a military funeral for my Dad as he was one of the declining number of WWII survivors, and deserved this dignified “send off.” It was arranged to perfection. Our entire family are grateful for the manner in which all aspects of his funeral were handled. Thank you Jim and staff for all you did for us at what is clearly a challenging and emotional time in life.
First, let me say thank you Jim, to you and your staff, for the outstanding support and care for our family. The Scanlin Funeral home and their services were top notch, respectful and dignified. When I learned Mr Scanlin was a former US Army Officer, I needed not worry. My family made some difficult choices on the day my mother passed, Jim took his time with our family and went over details enough to ensure we were comfortable with all our plans. Legal documents and notices were handled without delay by Jim and his staff. The home and the parking lot were excellent for as many as 60 attendees, if not more. Jim and his staff were with our family. Every. Step. Of the way. From the arrangements to the cemetery, over almost a week. Sir, I can’t thank you enough. My mother would have loved it, she’s the one who chose you! God bless.
From the very beginning Jim and his Team, were compassionate, caring, supportive and informative.Not having much experience in this type of service needed, Jim guided us through the entire process from funeral planning to setting us up with an appointment with the proper cemetery person, to other helpful tips on getting everything done that was needed. Within 12 hours of my wife's passing I had all the arrangements completed, which then gave me the time to mourn and reflect and not have a lot of decisions still waiting to be made.For me it was a Blessing to be able to get the things that had to be done completed smoothly and to our complete satisfaction.
Thank you so much for assisting us at this difficult time. Your kindness and consideration for every detail made the process very smooth for us. We appreciated the way you handled even the little things without us having to ask, as well as the professional attitude and kindness of everyone we met. Thank you!
Mr. Scanlin (Jim) is an excellent funeral director and his staff are extremely professional. Jim helped me through the planning of funeral arrangements for both of my parents and the burials. My parents had different desires for their burials - one was a religious ceremony with internment at a cemetery and the other a cremation with internment at the cemetery. My parents passed away within a year of each other and thank God for Jim and his team. They handled every aspect of the burial, from the collection of the bodies to the arrangements and finally to the day of the funeral flawlessly and respectfully. My family and guests where very impressed with how smooth everything was.
Thank you Scanlin Funeral Home, you made a hard time easier for all.
At a time when guidance is needed, Jim Scanlin provided gentle navigation through the process of planning for the service for my wife. He worked side by side with our local church to make her remembrance perfect.
Thank you so very much.
The meticulous attention to detail and personalized accommodations Mr. Scanlin provided for my mother at this most difficult time was very well reflected and recognized by all in attendance of my mother's funeral. I could not have been more grateful for the care and respect shown towards my mother and also previously with my father from Scanlin Funeral Home. Would strongly recommend to all people during their time of lose.
Jim Scanlin handled my father’s funeral with elegance and class from top to bottom. All details were handled and carried out beautifully so that my family and I could say a proper goodbye. I have been to other funerals also held at Scanlin‘s and walked away with the same feeling of complete professionalism and Caring !
In the midst of great sadness for our family, Jim Scanlin and his staff provided warm, personal comfort in our grief. We felt like we did not have to worry about the myriad of details. Jim personally handled the services for Dad four years ago and now, Mother. Jim was on hand and available…characteristics I believe, only from a family-owned, longtime business. I recommend Scanlin Funeral Home with my highest regards!
Jim and his staff were professional and wonderful to work with during this difficult time when my Mom passed. He went over every detail and made sure everything was covered. Jim is wonderful with his work and I would recommend him to everyone.
He had handled my Dad's funeral 5 years ago and did an amazing job with him and did not disappoint us with my Mom. Everything was handled beautifully.
