From beginning to end, Hiers- Baxley was a fabulous business to work with! They made our funeral planning painless and were very sympathetic our situation.

My experience was very good with the exception of that you need to upgrade your WIFI so that you can stream the funerals. Out of town friends and family were very devastated that they couldn't stream my husband's memorial service.

At such a challenging time, LaMario Johnson and all the staff at Hiers-Baxley did everything to make it as bearable as possible. LaMario was very informative, very clear and gave us great advice on the decisions we had to make. My family and I will always remember the professionalism and respect we received. I highly recommend Hiers-Baxley.
