I just want to take a minute and tell everyone how much we appreciate how everyone was so professional, and caring during the entire process with my Grandmother Doris Beck. The entire family is extremely satisfied with the way everything was done, and how we were treated. I hope you will post this on your wall on Facebook because I want everyone to know exactly how we felt about our service. All of us will definitely recommend Beams for their funeral needs.

Ellen Preckel
I felt it only a small thing I could do to personally thank all those that helped through a rough time of extraordinary circumstances. The folks at Beam went above and beyond anything they were expected to do and myself and my family appreciate it immensely. These are the people that often I imagine get overlooked day to day because of the nature of the services they provide, but let me assure you in your time of need and despair they will do their best and their most to help you through even the toughest of situations. I want to personally thank them again for the amount of grace and willingness they showed my family and no longer will I take for granted what people's hearts are capable of even when they don't know you. Best wishes to the team there and keep doing the work you do as you do because it warms the heart and helps more than anyone can imagine.
Nathaniel Gardin II

They were so wonderful when we lost my grandmother and words can't explain our gratitude. Thank you for everything!
Bridgette Davis Sellers
Thank you so very much Landon to you and the staff. Although it is always very stressful and sad to have to make arrangements for someone you loved here on earth, it is still harder when you can't be there and make them in person but you made it very easy and talking to you helped with some of the sadness in my heart. You were so very kind and understanding. Again thank you and God Bless you and your wonderful staff.

We could never begin to thank Chad and his staff. Matt & Landon treated us like family, so much kindness and compassion, we will never forget. They treated Mother with so much respect, and tried to help us with our grief. Harry and the gentlemen at the funeral was so caring and thoughtful toward us, and made the service go so easy. We are so Blessed, and so appreciative of all that was done for Mother and for us. Goodbyes are so hard, but compassion from those that don't really know the family made it a lot easier. God Bless Chad and his wonderful staff.
Ray & Rhonda Price

May God bless each of you!
Terri Jobes Poteat
Thank you seems like such a small word for all that you did during our time of grief. From the care of our precious Dad to taking time with my sister and me as we planned his service. We were never rushed or nor did you force anything on us that we didn't want. Thank you for getting in touch with the Navy and making sure Dad had that honor that he so truly deserved. My sister and I were so pleased with the way everything thing was handle. Anything we asked was taken care of promptly with the most caring and respect anyone could ask for. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for the respect and kind caring ways we were shown during this most difficult time.

They respond quickly with excellent communication. They understand that planning can become overwhelming so they make sure to follow up through messaging, visiting, and calling. There is not enough words to describe how thankful we are. My family and friends kept saying how things were handled very professionally and mindfully. Thank you. 01/05/16 The Connelly Family

Alan Snypes
I could not have been more pleased with the way Chad and his team conducted my mother's service. The entire staff was very professional and polite, they made a tough situation easier for my family and took care of every little detail. You could not ask for anything better. I would recommend them to anyone that has lost a loved one. If you would give your loved one the best care when they were still alive, why not the best when they are gone.
Eric Sisk
I want to thank you and your staff for taking care of our family. I could not ask for a more caring staff and the help that they gave us.. They helped us every step of the way. Thank You from the Gibson family
Joan McKinney
People must work and provide for their families, but very few do that with the grace and care you do. It is very evident money is not the most important thing to you at one of the hardest times in people's lives. So many things I needed advice on and Chad was so good. The kindness when he walked in with me at the funeral so I wasn't alone was so kind. Your prices are very reasonable for all the services you do. May God bless your lives, family, and business. Thank you
Pat Kirkland
Thank you for making the arrangement process as smooth as possible. The food was great and very much appreciated. The service was beautiful. We couldn't have done this without you.

Just wanted to thank you and your staff for all your help for the service for my mother, Pearl Martin.

Thanks again & God Bless you and your staff.

I don't even have words that can begin to express the gratitude my family and I have for you! You'll go over and beyond what you had to and we will forever be grateful. You treated my mother with such respect and you did everything we asked of you and then some. My dad, Jerry Randall, looked more at peace than he has looked in a while. Thank you for that and for meeting our every need! You even had kind words to speak when you didn't even know anyone was listening. Matthew is amazing!
Nikki Randall
Dear Chad & Family, Your kindness to our family will never be forgotten. Thank you for the flowers and all that you did to make a difficult time easier.
Chad & Matthew, Thank you for the compassion and call you gave to mom (Alice), while planning the service for my dad, Jerry Randall. My siblings and I live in Texas and was not there during the planning of service. Our dad's passing was sudden & unexpected. The help and care you gave her made everything much easier on her. Your team did a fantastic job. We were not disappointed with one thing. From my entire family, God bless you for the work you do & thank you for taking care of us.
Angie Forrest & the family of Jerry Randall

I'd Like to Take a Moment ߙ‚d Brag On Chad Beam and "Beams Funeral Service & Crematory". He and his staff took a Short Coming of Mine that I should have made arrangements for my Mom's Passing weeks prior, An Turned it into one of the best arranged, Funerals I'd been to. They took a lot of Confusion, on my part and orchestrated a smooth well scheduled, respectful, finale, the destination for my Mom's Illness, at 2:00 in the Morning the best well-dressed man came with the Nicest bed and quilt to start caring for my mother, I had several requests of wants and things my family desired and it was one of the easiest Business yet personal experiences I've had, Kandi Bartlett was the Most professional sweetheart ever with every detail " I dotted and T crossed. Of course, John Ray and all the staff were exceptional And would like to thank each and everyone, for the job you pulled off on short notice and recommend ya'lls service to anyone. Again I've used several different services in county and Out and would recommend the Personal touch they provide to anyone. Thank you again, Chad on a job well done from the Bowman Family.
