“Compassionate & Respectful”

June 20th, 2014

To the owners, management and staff of Northport Funeral & Cremation Service
I was blessed to be part of helping a homeless man in the last part of his earthly journey. He was given special care by Hospice of West Alabama and on December 23, Vincent’s journey ended. I received a call just after midnight and I went to Hospice to wait on the pickup of his body. As I sat in the room putting his belongs (besides a few clothes, a pair of shoes and a bedroll) in a zip lock bag, I was so saddened to think this is all he owned. At that time, in walked two very caring and compassionate funeral home owners: Ricky and Charles Sherrod. When I explained that Vincent was homeless and not sure of all the final directives at this time, they were so, so compassionate and respectful to Vincent as they transported his body. During the whole process of working with me, Vincent’s brother and final cremation and shipping of cremains, they were very professional. Every step of Vincent’s final journey was given with much care. I cannot say enough about the level of service, professionalism, care and compassion that the staff at Northport Funeral & Cremation Service provide. I chose their company because we had received excellent service when we purchased a marker for my father in law’s grave in 2011. I knew that only Northport Funeral & Cremation Service would be choice to handle services for Vincent who was homeless yet went home like a king surrounded by compassionate people. Thank you again Mr. Ricky Sherrod and Mr. Charles Sherrod and staff for your continued excellence in the funeral service. God bless you in your business as you pay it forward!
Sincerely, Sharon Standifer
