Nichelle, Thank you! During the hardest time of mine and Mark's lives and your caring made it easier. Always listening to our concerns, you solved all of our problems and handled everything for us. As our Dear John would say, "You are professional, Nichelle!" Thank you again for everything and for being such a good friend. Karen & Mark

I would like to thank the entire staff of Neal and Summers with a special hug to Corben Kinder. Due to the Coronavirus, Corben had to follow the guidelines to prevent spreading the virus and was unable to give out those hugs that are so needed by the families during the death of a loved one. We were unable to have calling hours, but the graveside service was special with the military providing a flag to my mother and taps being played in the cemetary. The service was streamed to their Facebook website and family members who could not attend were able to view the service as it was taking place. Every detail was taken care of (flowers for the graves' of my dad and brother) with a learning curve for us all during these stressful times. Thanks for keeping us all safe and still having a beautiful service.

I have had experiences with about four or five funeral homes. The Funeral Director, Corben Kinder, went way above and beyond what was called for, I was so impressed. He is really a good one to listen to you and goes beyond to get you what you want. I can not explain how great they are, all of them. I am highly impressed with all. I am so glad my parents had their services done there. Really are good people and they treat you like a family member. I tell people I work with that all funeral homes need to be like this one! I was really impressed by Corben Kinder. He nailed it! Sara Hudson

When my husband passed, the staff at Neal and Summers were right there to make sure that our wishes and needs were met. They were always available no matter the time-day or night. The pre-planning was done in the comfort of our own home and that made it so nice. They are just like family. Richard had been so ill for several weeks and had lost a considerable amount of weight. At the viewing he looked just like he did before he was ever ill. They did an amazing job and I am so glad we let them take care of him. He received the best care possible. Thank you to each one of you. Job well done!!!!!

Corben, I would like to thank you for all that you did for my family last week as we made arrangements and said goodbye to my grandma, Hazel Johnson. You were kind, professional, helpful, and even tolerant of our wild little boys romping around the funeral home.

Her care and concern to make sure everything was perfect, the only possible thing that could have been better was to not have to lose my love, but as we all know, that is only in one person's control.

I could not have asked for better conditions. The staff, all of them, were very helpful, compassionate, informative, and cooperative. My husband was retired from Monon Rail Road as a Freight Agent and Telegraph Operator. We wanted to display his telegraph equipment, hats, jackets, and more. He was also an avid golfer (great golfer). He also participated several years in Senior Olympics, winning many gold and silver medals in every event. They displayed all of these things for us in different areas of the chapel, like professional directors. We heard many positive comments, from a lot of people from out of town and locals, about how great everything looked, the amazing facility, and the staff.

"Our family just wanted to share a blessing that some Morgan County families may not know about. Morgan County is truly blessed to have Neal & Summers Mortuary in our community. Allow us to share why we feel this way. On May 9, 2006, the worst day of our lives, our patriarch, Ken Noel, died. There was no thought as to where we would go to make arrangements for his funeral. We wanted to use Neal & Summers Mortuary. We had been to many calling hours and funerals there and felt very comfortable. However, we did not know just how comfortable we would be during our own sorrow. In fact, when he started doing funerals in his role as a minister, he was encouraged by Tom Neal to sit in on some funerals and begin to create his own style. When we walked in the building, we immediately felt very relaxed and wanted. As we began making the arrangements, Nichelle brought our family along the process that was needed. She was in no hurry nor did she try to pressure us into anything. We were so amazed at how comfortable she made us feel. If there was a question, she took the time to answer it completely and did not move on until everyone was clear with that particular detail. It went so smoothly, we could hardly believe it was over. We cannot thank her enough for the patience she had with us and the true concern she showed for our family. During the next few days, things would come up and we felt very comfortable coming in and talking to either Nichelle or Mia about whatever it was. We asked what was allowed in the funeral home, and they basically stated anything we needed or wanted. We were welcome to bring in food for the family, which turned out to be a lifesaver for my mother and her blood sugar issue. We felt so wanted and cared for it was hard to remember they were not a part of our family and sharing our grief too. The calling hours and funeral went without a problem and that is because of the employees working there that night, Mia Neal and Mark Manley, taking care of whatever we needed. The complete and honest care we received from everyone made the most traumatic moment of my life that much easier to handle. We felt they truly cared about what we were going through and did everything possible to make it as smooth as possible. Needless to say, words are not enough to express our sincere thank you to Neal & Summers Mortuary, and their employees. That is the reason we wanted to publicly thank them for their patience, care and all around professionalism. If any of you experience a traumatic moment, please remember this letter and know that they will treat you the same way - like family members. They are doing a much-needed job, but also a very hard job. It can't be pleasant for them, dealing with death all the time, but they sure hide it when it comes to meeting the needs of the family. May God continue to bless them all. We just wanted to make sure the good people of Martinsville know what a treasure we have in the Neal & Summers family."

Melanie Dodge & The family of Ken Noel

"How do I begin to thank you for all that you did for us, at a time when I was not able to think clearly and my heart was aching. I have told everyone how easy you made everything for us. The facility was so beautiful; the arrangements were perfect. Everything you did - the video, the music, the tape of the service right thru to the graveside, was done so beautifully and with such compassion and care. You are to be commended for operating in this manner. Many mortuaries do not. We received so many nice comments about the guitar and inscription of Daddy on the lid of Daddy's casket, and the display of Daddy's record albums and guitars. And the video - I thought most people had seen that done but so many said they'd never seen that before. I was so pleased and how you displayed Daddy's picture. I loved it! THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!"

Kaye & Tom Dixon (Raymond Deckard service)

"Thank you for making such a difficult time in our lives so easy. You truly have a way of showing your love and compassion for all of Mom's family, friends and loved ones. P.S. Mom's picture was such a precious gift. It was so thoughtful of you. We have it framed and in a special place for all to enjoy."

Patricia Flake (daughter of Gertrude Hamilton)

"You have been so wonderful helping me deal with the reality of a loss. You showed genuine care, not just good customer service! The choices you helped me with worked out just great. Mike would've been real pleased. Mia - I felt like a close friend was talking to me the few times we talked. Thank you for caring! "

Donna Nutter

"How can we ever say "Thanks" enough for your pre-arrangements and funeral service for our Mother, Elma Hurt. You were so very compassionate and professional. Everything was done to make it a beautiful service, and to have everything in the right place at the right moment. Mother looked so nice with her hair done and pretty lavender dress and white sweater. The handkerchief in her hand was a special touch. The family were all very pleased with things."

Joyce Mayes, Opal Hensley and Carol Boling

"Thanks so much for the beautiful service for my dad, Gale Bastin. My mom and dad have known and loved your dad and Uncle John for many years. They would be so happy to know what a wonderful job Neal and Summers has always done. You make things so much easier. You and Mia do a great job. Your dad should be proud. We appreciate all you did. It's nice to feel comfortable at a time like this. That's what small towns are good for. Everything is more personal with everyone. I appreciate the friendship with you and Mia also. It's hard enough coming in and doing someone's hair, but you two make it better."

Ginger Fowler

"From the time that Nichelle Neal Dalton picked up my Dad from the nursing home after he passed until after the burial, she was spectacular. She explained everything, answered our questions and was just all around helpful. She made me feel that she was gong to treat my Dad with the love and care I would have given him myself. As you can imagine, this was a sad time for me & my family but Nichelle was able to put everyone at ease and help us see the good memories. Nichelle is truly amazing and is wonderful at her job."

Maureen Bennett (Duane Rasmussen Family)

"I can't find the words that even come close to saying Thank You for everything you did to make Doug's passing so much easier to handle. A very special thank you for being so good to my mom. I believe you went out of your way to make all of this easier for her. That really meant alot. Once again, a big thank you for doing such an outstanding job with Doug. He looked so peaceful. Even now, I find comfort from that. May the good Lord bless you, you sure are a blessing to us."

Debbie Mathies (Peggy & Doug Hatfield's daughter)

"It was sooo beautiful! Wanted to say "Thank you" for the lovely service you provided for all of us. You went above and beyond your commitment, which isn't unusual. You have always treated us like family."

The Stanger Family

"We wanted to send you a "Thank you" for that beautiful memorial service. It really meant so much to us. Since that service, we have actually felt a sense of peace in our hearts and minds. Thanks so much for everything."

Debbie, Diane and Tish (daughters of Bob and Betty Cordell)

"Words cannot express the joy of having Mother look so beautiful. She was as we always remember her. You always make us feel so welcome and comfortable, although you may be so busy. We love you all and thank you for making such a difficult time so heart-warming. You truly are compassionate and we have nothing but praise for the kindness shown our family of Bessie M. Whitehead."

Sannie Cloud

"I have just come from the beautiful Remembrance Ceremony at Neal and Summers. Mia and Nichelle, once again, have gone beyond the call of duty! What a beautiful tribute to our loved ones! The gold leaf engraved with our loved ones' names and date of birth and death is beautiful. They also gave us each a wooden plaque to put a picture and the gold leaf on. We all lit candles and sang and released balloons with a memory card on them. Thank you for the angel pins, note pads, pens and telephone and address books. Seeing the picture of our loved ones flash across the TV screen was another special touch. Thank you from the bottom of my heart and may God bless you, Mia and Nichelle, and your families. "

Pat Drennon

"We want to sincerely thank you for everything you all have done for us in the wake of our loss. Your support, your guidance, and your professionalism have been an invaluable source of comfort and strength in our darkest hours. In the midst of this tragedy we have learned just how important those closest to us are to our healing process. In the days following Eric's death, it was your patience and ability to steer us through the unimaginable decision process that gave us the strength and courage to endure. It truly felt as if our own family was helping us with the arrangements, we could not imagine having to work with anyone else. We are so very thankful for your kindness during our first meeting, your patience and continuous availability, and your help in planning for the wonderful service. Eric looked truly amazing and at peace. We are forever indebted to you on behalf of Eric and our family. We know he shares our many thanks as he watches over us from Heaven and waits patiently, free of pain and sorrow, to be reunited with us again." Thessalonians 5:18: "In everything give thanks for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you." God Bless,
