Greenidge Funeral Homes provided an extraordinary level of service and support during a difficult period for us. Their staff, particularly Kerry Hall and Joe Greenidge, were helpful, patient, responsive, and extremely attentive to the many details involved in organizing my father's services. Their professionalism made a difficult process much smoother and helped to lessen the inevitable stress that surrounds planning a funeral. Kerry found the organization Last Salute to handle the military services for Dad and they did a wonderful job including providing both photos and mementos of the services for which we are very grateful. I would recommend Greenidge without reservation for anyone looking for affordable and professional funeral services.

Dear Mrs. Greenidge: 

On behalf of my family and myself, I would like to extend our deepest gratitude for the beautiful funeral service that was held for my Mother. All of your staff was always so professional and courteous throughout the entire process.

1. After Thomas took care of Mom she looked so beautiful and it was as if she had never been as sick as she was.

2. Please give Joe an extra special thank you for putting up with me and mine. He was always so patient and reassuring and really helped me get through a rough time.

I know my Mom is at peace now and all of you helped her get there.

Hello Mrs. Greenidge, 

I received your call the other day and wanted to also wish you and your family a blessed holiday. Most importantly I wanted to let you know how much my family and I appreciate you and the services that you provide. Your reputation of being an expert in this area is well deserved. I thank you and your son for guiding me throughout this entire process. This was the first time that I had to make funeral arrangements and you all made this time in my life less painful by understanding what was needed. My grandmother, Mrs. Mary Lee Harris looked beautiful on the day of service and again I thank you. The Greenidge team was very professional yet caring which was helpful during my time of grief. 

God Bless, Juanita J. Hyman

To Greenidge Funeral Homes and staff,

Please allow me to take a moment to say a heartfelt thanks to each of you. Everyone had a pivotal part in ensuring that my baby brother’s final needs were met with compassion and great concern to every detail. 

I especially want to thank Thomas Jennings. Because of him, my last remembrance of my brother’s physical appearance will be one of quiet and peaceful contentment. He asked my preference as to rather or not I wanted to cover my brother, which I did; and also, at the gravesite, he asked if we (the family) wanted to stay for his interment, which we did. He patiently answered my questions and assisted my son and me to our car. In the pouring rain, he and the other staff member also stayed until the family had driven away. 

A special thanks to you and your mom for your help in ways too numerous to mention. Please also extend my thanks to her for allowing extended “view”. May God’s light continue to shine on you all.

Sincerely, Delores K. Marshall

To the Staff,

Our family is eternally grateful for all the words of encouragement and guidance.  Without your sincere caring and direction we couldn't have done it alone.

A few weeks ago your organization handled the funeral arrangements for my mother, Wilhelmina Smith. I had to send this short note to you saying thank you for doing an exceptional job! You all were so caring and warm just what our family needed during this time of sorrow. Your presentation of our mother was just as awesome. Myself and family thank you for giving us your very best service!
