The words "Thank You" alone do not begin to convey the gratitude and appreciation the family of Frances E Johnson wish to express to James Hunt Funeral Home, Xenia Ware and Catherine Ford. From my initial contact with Xenia and Catherine I knew within my heart that I had chosen the right people to entrust my loved ones final home going to. They offer comfort, support, guidance and total professionalism throughout. They made the process much easier to bear. Thank you and God Bless You!

I would to say "Thank You" to the staff at James Hunt Funeral Home. The staff did a great job with my mother's service. I would like to a minute to say, that everything was perfect right down to her makeup. Although, I am hoping not to lay anyone to rest anytime soon, but I will return to James Hunt Funeral. I entrust that they handle everything.

Dear Xenia and Kevin,

I would like to express our utmost gratitude for the services rendered, the professionalism exemplified, and especially the way you and staff were so pleasant and accommodating working with us through details of my uncle’s arrangements. From the first phone call and his pick-up we felt he was in good hands - so reassuring.

On behalf of my uncle’s son and I, we thank you! The funeral service was beautiful.

In the Covid-19 environment not being able to do things in the normal manner, James Hunt Funeral Home was prepared with very effective alternatives. You provided innovative means, an excellent Pastor who officiated and sources that helped compensate for lack of the traditional service we would have liked to have provided for our loved one.

My uncle was very particular concerning the way he dressed and his appearance. He would have approved of the way he looked. The setting surrounding him, the floral arrangement and family pictures were so beautiful and complimentary!

Again, many thanks to you and team.

God Bless you all! - Joe and Tyrone

We would like to thank the staff at JHHunt Funeral Home for the exceptional care given to our family following the recent passing of our beloved mother, Frances J Keel.
Kevin, Xenia, Cathy & Fran were extraordinary throughout the process. Xenia and the staff attended to every detail, big and small. Numerous people in attendance at moms service commented on how Fran worked her magic in making our mom look absolutely beautiful and at peace. At a time when emotions run high following the death of a loved one, being able to entrust the arrangements and services to JJHunt was invaluable. They were not only compassionate and supportive but also professional in every way in surpassing their mission to serving clients with compassion dignity and respect .

Thank you everyone at James H. Hunt for the beautiful service you provided for my Dad. The display was beautiful and the entire staff was so efficient and quiet, supportive in every way. You made it very easy for me to prepare for the memorial from Ohio and made certain I could celebrate his life with family and friends without the stress or worry about preparation. Thank you for everything.

Dear Mr. Small,

Instead of completing the Customer Care Questionnaire, please accept this letter regarding the services provided by the James H. Hunt Funeral Home for my sister Margaret Cook.

Margaret passed on May 31, 2019, and from the initial phone call to the completion of the final paperwork, the services provided by Hunt's Funeral Home are to be applauded.

There was very little, if any, that was disappointing with you or the staff. Your sensitivity and responsiveness to the family's requests regarding the viewing and memorial service was impeccable. I was most impressed with the livestreaming, thereby permitting other family members who could not attend, to view the service in real time.

There is no question we will use your Funeral Home in the future. The fact is, we have utilized Hunt's Funeral Home, as far back as our grandparents. As pointed out during the family meeting, your services have been outstanding and without compromise.

We will share our experiences with extended family members, and you should feel free to use my letter as a testimonial to the services provided.

John Cook Jr., on behalf of the Cook Family.

I Must Work The Works Of Him That Sent Me, While It Is Day:
The Night Cometh, When No Man Can Work.


In Times of sorrow and pain we seek relief through prayer. The
Almighty God who is the source of our supply will in those times
provide the comfort we seek. I am eternally grateful that
He provided you. I Jewel Bellamy wife of Pastor Reginald L. Bellamy
wish to thank you for allowing God to use you to bless and
comfort me as I go through my time of sorrow and healing.

Each day I reflect on this great journey that we shared knowing that
God will continue to stand by and with me.
I was truly touched by the outpouring of love shown, maybe you sent
a card, a financial blessing, flowers or it was your presence.
I just wish my husband was here to see it, he did not have a clue.

May God richly continue to bless you is my prayer.
Shalom & Love, Jewel Bellamy

My family would like to thank Xenia Ware, Kevin Small, Fran, Willie, & the ENTIRE staff at James H. Hunt Funeral Home for the exceptional services we received during this time of loss. ( I wish I could remember everyone's name.)

The impeccable service received from this establishment, made the services for my mother, Lillian P. Nance, bearable. Their compassion, attention to detail, kindness and professionalism was outstanding.

From the first day meeting the staff; including the answering service, they were very knowledgeable in their jobs, helpful with any and all questions, and responded to our family in a timely fashion.

The care they extended with displaying the photos celebrating my mothers life was beautiful. Not knowing my mother personally, they did an awesome job.

There are not enough words to express the gratitude and superior service our family feels and received. I would recommend this funeral company to anyone in need of services. God bless you and continued success.

My name is Kenneth Manuel. My mother, Lois Manuel, passed away on September 30, 2015. On behalf of my entire family, I would like to thank Xenia Ware, Kevin Small, and the entire staff of The James H. Hunt Funeral Home, for their compassion and the extreme professionalism they demonstrated to all of us during a very difficult time in our lives. From the very first day that I met with Xenia to start planning the funeral; up to and including the interment, the staff was always available and accessible to us, whenever we needed them, or if we ever had a question. They were very knowledgeable in their jobs and were also very straight forward with regards to the various products that they offered and the prices involved. As far as I am concerned, they did a Class A job and we will always be thankful to them for their service. I would recommend this funeral company to anyone who is seeking their services and I am quite sure that you will not be disappointed.

To the staff at James H. Hunt Funeral Home thank you so much, for the loving kindness and support during my families sorrow. Believe me, it is beyond words what I can say about how professional and loving all of you gave to my family and friends. I have never attended a funeral service that was done in such a manner, everyone expressed their opinion about how beautiful my mother was laid to rest, it was like no other I have ever seen.

I thank my Auntie Fran for suggesting that I visit your funeral home, I will absolutely inform others about your services and also how respectful and caring the entire staff was while making this sorrow as painless as possible. There is nothing that I can recommend or suggest that you do different. Again thank you so much.

Although it was a very sad day for My family and I , James H. Hunt funeral home made me very happy that we chose them. The feeling of acceptance and love is around when you are speaking to them and you feel like they really do care about your loss. My Grandmother was also pleased with how things turned out , I know she was in heaven looking down at us like wow , they really made things so nice. I loved the collages and the fact that they had so many picture frames , the quilt was beautiful. She looked like a true angel. Once again Thank you so much ..

Hello my name is Shamika Rosario and my father Irving Johnson memorial service was held at James H. Hunt Funeral Home. I never had to plan a funeral for any of my loved ones before,this was the first. I had no idea where to start, but the staff at Hunts was over and beyond helpful. Not only where they professional, but very compassionate with the family in understanding our grief. The whole process was very smooth with no problems at all. Everything that we needed to know was explained and if we had any other questions, we were encouraged to call and ask. I was very pleased with how my father looked and how the service was presented. When I think back to when I first saw him It brings tears to my eyes, because he looked so beautiful and peaceful. Knowing that someone else who didn't know my father and took such good care of him, in our time of need is dear to me. Thank you so very much from the bottom of my heart.

There are not enough words to express the gratitude that the family of the late Rev. Dr. Carl F. Hunter has for the staff of the James H. Hunt Funeral Home. From the time they were contacted, even until a week after the services the funeral home staff has been there to make sure we as a family were doing fine. Special thanks to Kevin Small and Xenia for the extra attention and care they have extended to us. In your time of need, though they are a business, the staff of the James Hunt Funeral Home will become a part of your family. Their attention to details which may have been overlooked in planning on part of the family is what is needed during the bereavement period. There is no doubt that the James Hunt Funeral Home, a family based business, continues to provide superior service for the family on the behalf of the family. We have continuously been receiving calls about the funeral service and the professionalism of the funeral home staff. On behalf of Virginia Blake Hunter, Carl F. Hunter II, Dr. Danielle Hunter, David H. Hunter and Franklin Farrar, Deloris Simmons, Kenneth Hunter, and William Wilson, we are in awe and thankful for everything the James H.
