As a pastor, I’ve had many opportunities to minister to families as they grieve the loss of a loved one. I’ve seen, up close and personal, how valuable a funeral home can be in helping a family through a very difficult time. I’ve worked with funeral homes, big and small, in large cities and small towns. The personal and professional manner in which Commerce Funeral Home serves grieving families is second to none. Most underestimate the amount of planning that goes into a funeral. Jim and Teena are called to this specific ministry. They do an incredible job of helping families work through the details, which leads to a quality tribute to a family member with a minimal amount of added stress.

Kris Myers

Thank you so much Jim and Teena. You both were so kind and helpful through this difficult time. My family and I appreciated how just little things we mentioned about Kenneth you used to make the visitation and funeral represent the kind of man he was. We would not have made it without your guidance and patience. None of us want to think about the loss of a love one, but when the time comes, the Bearden Family knows who to come to and would gladly recommend Commerce Funeral Home to others. Thanks again.
