Dear Friends at Benton-Glunt, We want to thank you from the bottom of all our hearts for doing such an amazing, heartfelt service for our dad and moms husband, John W. Hall. Your team went above and beyond on every single aspect. It was so personal and even uplifting in our time of grief. The blanket is gorgeous! Mom has it hanging on her bedroom wall. The 3 videos are unbelievable and have been watched over and over again. The "flip" cards are the neatest keepsake I've ever seen and the programs were so nice and put a smile on our face as a tear ran down our cheek. Everything was perfect and couldn't have been better. "THANK YOU" notes! That was just SO special that we could share dad one more time! Thank You from the John Hall family Sincerely, Andrea Steele.

Jim and Benton-Glunt Staff, Thank you so much for all you gave and took away for me and my family. You gave your professional care, concern and met our every need. Often before we recognized we had a need. You took away considerable stress and worry for us all. For me, you took away the picture of my frail, aging, ill mother from the nursing home and gave me back my vision of a peaceful, loving, carefree mother. A load was lifted from the first time I saw her after your son in law worked his magic. Jim, you told us your job was also to care for the living when I said my concern was for mom while she was alive. I can now truly appreciate your meaning and say without a doubt, you and your staff care for the living very well. With Heartfelt Appretiation, Brenda Dossett and Family
