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.
You both were an answered prayer to me and my girls. You made an extremely difficult time so much better.
Jim and Teena, we want to offer our sincere appreciation for all your help during this difficult year. Everything was handled perfectly and the funeral service for Ruth and L.D. were beautiful.
Outstanding job! Needs were met above and beyond! Stay as you are, just love and care as you do.
Mr. and Mrs. Ayres, with their caring and patient manner, made this experience as painless as possible. It was perfect and I cannot think of anything that would have made it better. Highly recommend their services.
You don't need to improve! You were professional and supportive. The service was very meaningful and your attention to detail made the service run smoothly. We will certainly recommend your service to friends and family as needs arise.
Your service is impeccable! Mother's service was everything we wanted it to be because of your caring, high quality, personalized service. Every detail was perfect. Your loving guidance was so special. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
Your services were GREAT! I appreciate your kindness and sympathy in my time of grief. You guys were AWESOME!
Your customer service was excellent and all family members were pleased. I have already recommended you to others! Your assistance in carrying out our wishes was unmatched.
You both took great care to ensure our wishes were carried out. Everything was handled with the utmost respect and dignity our mother wanted. In such a time of great sadness, you both offered guidance and support that was such a comfort to us.
There are not enough words to thank you for the many things you helped us with. Your expertise, your connections & referrals, but most of all your sincere love for others in their time of need. You guys are #1 in our eyes, that's for sure!
Jim & Teena.
What can I say? Everything was perfect for our Eddie Pearl. She would be pleased. Your kind and wonderful people.
Jim and Teena, I can't thank you enough for your guidance during our loved one's memorial. Thank you for your professionalism, your kindness, attention to detail, and tender loving care. You went above and beyond any expectations.

Words cannot express how much we value your assistance. Your compassion, patience and professionalism aided us in planning a funeral service that honored the life of our loved one. We felt your love and support each step of the way. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts. May God continue to bless your ministry.
Sometimes in life we meet people who forever change our world. You and your wife entered our lives at our weakest moments. Your kindness has touched, moved and inspired us. You went above and beyond what was expected. Thank you for honoring our loved one.
We especially thank you for the way you eased us through the process. That meant the world to us and we appreciate the dignity and respect you showed him. Thank you.
You were recommended by a friend. There could not be any improvement in the service that we received! When my daughter first spoke with you she felt a true comfort and a sense that you cared for her, just as the rest of us did the day we came to your funeral home. We have never had to plan a funeral before and we thank you for the love we felt upon meeting y'all. We could never have this feeling were it not for you. You all were truly a blessing to each of us.
Jim and Teena are very responsive to the needs of others. Very caring and thoughtful? Thank you, thank you!
Thank you for helping to bring organization and peace to a difficult time. We have never had to plan a funeral before and your help was so appreciated.
A friend of ours gave you an excellent recommendation. They were right! I5t was all excellent. I would highly recommend you to friends and family. We were exceptionally pleased.
Words really can't express my appreciation! You all did a great job. I couldn't be happier.
Thank you for all your kindness. Everything was very nicely arranged. Services were beyond my expectations. You were both so kind and understanding and listened even though you didn't have to. Just keep being y'all!
I was highly impressed with all aspects of the arrangements, acquiring the body timely, and the actual burial. Great job! Well done!
Our family cannot thank you enough for the beautiful service y'all provided for Jessica. Your kindness and support has been greatly appreciated.
We want to thank you and your wife for everything you did for our family in such a difficult time. You eased a great sadness and made making all the arrangements so much easier. Our family cannot thank you enough.
The service was beyond satisfactory. Do nothing more! We appreciate all you did, and are doing.
We found your services and attitude to be top-notch.
I was most impressed when you came to pick up my mother. You were so kind. Thank you for guiding me through this difficult time. I am grateful.
Thank you for your assistance at our time of sorrow. The outstanding quality of service, your guidance and support was deeply appreciated. Your kindness and thoughtfulness meant more to us than we can ever express.
My mom and I both agreed that the Lord sent us to Jim and Teena, when the time came for us to plan my dad's funeral service. Upon our first meeting, we felt their warmth and genuine desire to help, guide, and minister to us at a sad and difficult time. The time they took, their attention to detail, and especially their Christian faith was a huge comfort and blessing to our entire family. Thank you and may God bless you, Jim and Teena!!!
Everything you did for us was perfect. You both are wonderful. I couldn't have asked for more compassionate and loving people than Jim and Teena.
Jim and Teena were very helpful with the planning of my partners funeral . I have never had to deal with this before. They walked me through the process very sweetly and understandably .
Thank y'all so much
The funeral for daddy was beautiful. Daddy would have loved it! Many complimented on how it was a loving service and a wonderful tribute. Thanks to both of you!
I had been in a service with you and was real impressed with your service. The service you did for my son was great. I don't know anything you could do to improve it!
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.
Teena and Jim were so kind and caring this past year. They exceeded my expectations! We couldn't have chosen a better funeral home to work with.
Jim and Teena were so nice. I'm so glad to have met them!
Was very pleased with how the funeral service was choreograpghed.... Job well done! Many thanks.
The service was great. I was very pleased.
During one of the most difficult times that our family has experienced, losing my brother, Elmer Castner, Commerce Funeral Home guided us and supported us so professionally and spiritually. Thank you so much for the way you helped me plan and prepare for Elmer's visitation. I appreciate the way you prepared your facility for the visitation. Everything was wonderful and Elmer would have been pleased. The Commerce community is blessed to have Jim and Teena Ayres.
I was just thinking about you two......... I really do believe there are not two better folks to help families in their time of grief.
Your response and service to our family was prompt and gracious. My daughter-in-law was also very impressed. Keep being as wonderful as you are!
During one of the most difficult times in our lives, The Commerce Funeral Home and Cremation Service, was there to provide support, professionalism and compassion.
The Service for my brother was touching, the Bible verses were very appropriate and the overall support was very comforting.
Dr Ingram is one of the finest friends we have ever had. A true icon in Commerce and at the University. We are so honored that her Lisa chose to bring her to you.
Love you, Teena and Jim.
I don't know how to thank you enough for everything you did. You were such a blessing. I can't imagine how we got through this, and we couldn't have without your loving, kind help.
Thank you so much for all of your help after my mom's passing. Your decency and compassionate care of my mom demonstrates God's love for us through you. You made a difficult time bearable. We have been blessed to interact with you both and have felt as though you were always friends.
Thank you for caring and making this difficult time so much easier. Your comfort and care went far beyond your professional work. We appreciate everything you did!
Words cannot express how much you have done for the Hawkins Family. You provided us the support and advice that we needed. Everything went beautifully because of your caring expertise.
I just wanted to thank you for the blessing you were to our family at the passing of our dad. Your professional service was outstanding, but it was the loving manner in which you treated our family that meant so much. Your care and concern for our family was a true ministry to us.
You made a very difficult time so much easier. Thank you! The staff was amazing and your facility is beautiful. You were recommended by a friend and we will be back someday!
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.
