Forbes Funeral Home and its staff went over and above for us. Hawke was so thoughtful and his compassion for those mourning is exceptional. I am forever grateful that we chose them for Mama's celebration of life.

Myself and my family are forever great full to Hawke and the entire Forbes staff.
Hawke has been so kind, and helpful in this difficult time of my life.
He set me at ease knowing my mother would be gently taken care of.

I will always recommend their services,

Marnie Smith.

I can not express how grateful I am with Hawke and the entire staff at Forbes Funeral home.
Being the first time I have had to do this, he walked me thru every step of the way.
But for me the event that stays in my mind constantly, was how gentle he was with my mother Sally Short.
It is people like them that make this small communities great.

I’d like to give my greatest thank you to Hawke Forbes and his team at Forbes Funeral Home for everything they did for us during the time of my mother in law’s passing. Hawke not only met, but exceeded every expectation I brought to him and never once made us feel like a burden when arrangements were changed. He was extremely professional and accommodating for us throughout the last few months. He and his team made one of the saddest days in our family a little bit lighter and a little bit easier to get through and we cannot thank them enough.

On behalf of the Thomas Norman Family I want to thank Forbes Funeral Home for the care and concern they have shown for our family. When your emotions are high and your sorrow is deep it is very easy to be taken advantage of. Hawke Forbes went over and beyond to be sure that our loved one was treated with the respect and dignity that we all expect at a time like this.

My family had used EVERY funeral home in this county! But when my Nana died we decided to try the newest one, Forbes. Probably the smartest decision we ever made!

Thanks Hank, Dana, & Mike for actually caring in our time of need!

I just wanted to take a moment to say thank you and to let you know how much your kindness and generosity in taking such wonderful care of my Mema (Gladys Jenkins) and treating her as if she were your own family member. The service you provided for my Mema and for myself and my family has deeply touched my heart. Thank you for the blessing you've given to us by taking such wonderful care of her and giving us a better memory of our last image of her to remember her by. If my Mema were here and able to say so herself, she'd be the first to say "thank you" as well. What you've done for my Mema and my family, will never be forgotten. Thank you all so very much, blessings to you all. Amy Ingram and Family
