Your feedback

We are always interested in hearing from the families that we serve.  Please take a moment to let us know how well we served you in your time of need. We very much appreciate your feedback.

My family is greatly appreciative of the treatment we received here. Melissa went above and beyond trying to accommodate us and was so comprehensive. The whole staff was nice and welcoming. We had my father’s service and cremation process here, and Melissa was supportive every step of the way. No complaints and I would definitely recommend their services to anybody that is going through this rough process. I am sure they will take great care of them just how they did with us.

Poole's has been associated with our family for over 50+ years, They have the most caring staff. Recently my mother was there for her funeral (Betty Richardson) , and Barbara Poole did such an outstanding job on my mama. Both sides of my dad's family and mom's family have been using Poole's and we have never been disappointed. I highly recommend them for all your burial needs. Thank you Melissa for answering all my many questions! We love and appreciate you all!

My family and I would like to thank the wonderful people at Harold Poole, especially Melissa. She was an angel sent from Heaven! I could not have gone through this experience without her. She helped me organize, order, and get things ready for the beautiful service held for my mom. I will forever appreciate her kindness.

We want to thank Barbara Poole, Melissa Barnes, Joyce Hathaway, and Ryan Scott for all the help with our friend and family member’s burial. They did a very professional and caring job arranging the burial and helping us secure the VA supplied marker. We would give our highest recommendation and a five star review to Barbara and her staff.

I want to thank Mrs Barbara, Joyce and Melissa. You all were wonderful. The loss of my Beloved Mother Hattie Inman was sudden and truly difficult.
Thank you for helping during one of the hardest experiences in my life.
Mrs Barbara, helped us with every detail.
My mother's wishes were to return to New York to be laid with my late father.
Thank you for making it happen.
Everyone at Poole's was very compassionate and professional.
I appreciate each and everyone one, and all the services.
You all helped me and my family during a difficult time.
Thank you.

In October 2018, Melissa and Barbara were a wonderful comfort for me when my husband, Kenneth McPherson passed away from a long illness. My late husband's wishes were for cremation and Poole took care of everything. I was able to choose an urn for his ashes and also a small remembrance container for my stepdaughter since she lives in California. Everyone at Poole was very professional and caring. I appreciate all of their service to me. They made a difficult time very easy, simple, and comforting.
