In 1990, I married Jennifer Lea Underwood Thomas of Greensboro, NC and we
have two sons, Hunter and Parker. Hunter lives in Myrtle Beach, SC. He is a

It is my desire to serve each family with my utmost ability during a
difficult time, showing dignity and respect for your deceased loved one and
putting the wishes of the family first in all services I conduct. My experience in all aspects of funeral
service assures you that the funeral service, graveside service, or cremation
service you desire will be taken care of in the most professional manner, “It’s
like having a member of the family in the funeral business.”
It would be my honor to serve you and I thank you in advance for the
confidence you place in me.
