    W.M. Smith-McNeal and Staff, Losing a loved one is never easy. In fact, it’s the hardest thing that my family has ever had to do. From the 2:00 am call awaking Bryan and even days after the funeral W.M. Smith-McNeal and staff has shown us so much love and support. Everyone that we came in contact with has been very professional, knowledgeable and shown our family such compassion during the entire process. Bryan and my dad had been friends for many years. It touched our hearts by how much he knew dad’s style down to the scent of cologne that was used. If it was not for their support and guidance we would have been completely lost. My dad has been labeled as a Legend and Bryan truly made sure that his service was that of royal treatment fit for our Legend! Again our family cannot say thank you enough for all you’ve done. We would like WM Smith-McNeal & staff to know how much our family appreciates you from the bottom of our hearts. Our prayer is that God will continue to bless, cover and prosper WM Smith- Mc Neal & staff to even greater unmeasurable heights! We love you and thanks for making us feel like family. From Cathy, Erica, Frankie La Cher, Maria and the entire family of Frankie “The Big Bopper” Green. Read more

    This is a public "Thank You" to Mr. Bryan McNeal, Jr. and his staff for the very caring, and professional services that we received during the services he provided for my father, mother-in-law, and 2 aunts. Mr. McNeal's true caring for our families was evident during our times of bereavement. Even though the time was very emotional, his thoughtfulness left us with no worries of all the necessary duties and responsibilities that we had to accomplish. Continually ensuring that all of our needs were met, Bryan put us at ease throughout the process. His meticulous attention to detail was showcased by not only doing the obvious by having our dearly departed looking their best, but also by allowing all the services to be very beautiful and memorable moments for our families. So in closing, and eliciting the memories of Jerry Middleton, Sr., Virginia Jefferson, Annie Hutcherson, and Carrie Green, I would like to thank Bryan McNeal, Jr. for his devotion not only to his craft, but to me and my family. He will always be thought of as an extended member of our family! Sincerest Appreciation, Mr. Navarro W. Middleton Read more
