Chenoa, Illinois
The sympathy flowers where more beautiful than on the picture. Very fresh and the arrangement was just wonderful. I would buy from this store any time again with confidence. Thanks for your outstanding and friendly service.

Savoy, Illinois
Most obit's have an area where condolences may be sent, however this one is only possible to send flowers. Crass commercialization at the begining and the end I see.

Pleasant Hill, Illinois
Our family has been taken care of by this funeral home for 40 years or more and we've never had a complaint. Mr. Lummis makes the entire ordeal easier and helps with so many of the minute details.

Country Club Hills, Illinois
I attended the services of Vicki Pittman yesterday and was very disappointed in your services. With today technology you should have known due to the weather, there will have to be a DELAYED BURIAL. The family should not had to put through that long ride from the church to Washington Memory Gardens walk in the mud and standing water to be told this. The Family entrusted you to make this a less painful experience as possible. But LEAKS & Sons let the family and friends down. I will never use your services or refer you to any one. This was very insensitive on Leaks & Sons!!!!!!!!
