It is with gratitude that I write this message. Thank you Sister Hawwah, staff & wonderful family. Sister Hawwah provided a loving, professional service to my immediate and extended family.

My brother Wendell LaMont Brunson, a/k/a Karriem was laid to rest on October 20, 2020. The family was very satisfied with the level of care and professionalism provided my brother upon his transition; he was loving attended too—evidenced by the meticulous wrapping of his body, and comforting burial cloth placed upon him. It was Comforting to witness my brother ‘at Peace.’

Thank you, Sister Hawwah & staff for a most respectful and elegant send-off for my little brother—Karriem!❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
