    Sadly this is our second family funeral over the last couple of years, BUT our experience, thru both services, from the sad beginning to the very sad resting place, has been as heartfelt for the staff at Mays Ward Dobbins, as it was for the family. The staff that Terry Pendley has put together is truly gifted at what they do, giving guidance & support with no kind of pressure on what 'should be done', instead tons of respect for families & their wishes, with pure understanding thru the sorrow. A personal Thank You & God Bless to this increditable staff. Read more

    Been meaning to write this for a while now and just now getting around to it. This place was just incredible! They thought of everything, were personal, sensitive, and hard working. They did everything to take care of our family and do it for a great price and do it in an excellent way. I am a widow of 3 little children, and they were so thoughtful with that, even setting up a private and comfortable room for me to nurse my little baby in during a break from the visitation. They called ahead to make sure we had the best parking and the most for the burial. Its family run and you can tell because they treat you like family not a business. They have integrity and do an EXCELLENT job in every single detail. I would highly recommend them to anyone. Read more

    I cannot thank you enough for all the help and direction you gave to my family as we planned and carried out the funeral for my dad, Wilson C. Heath. The entire Mayes Ward-Dobbins staff has been patient, consoling, and respectful. My dad looked very handsome, and the flag was such a nice tribute to his military service. You and your staff have been instruments of blessing to my family, and we appreciate you all. Carol Guinan Dianne Lowe Daren Anderson Janet Rollor Andrew Heath Read more
