I'm a daddy's girl and always have been. Needless to say, losing my daddy has been hard. I've pretty much always known my parents would be buried at Pinelawn and that Howard Carter would be taking care of everything. I had no idea it would be done with the same level of love and care that I showed my father. Cliff and his entire staff were not just professional, meticulous, and thorough - they were even more so attentive to our wishes, compassionate, communicative, and understanding of the many times we wanted to change something. I can never thank them enough for walking through this time with us - Cliff went above and beyond my expectations and I was not once left wondering how something would happen.

Wendall, our thoughts and prayers are with all of you at this time. Will always cherish the chats with your dad. We had one on my last trip to N.C. RIP your work here is done.

I still remember that “young boy” at Banks school who could melt my heart with his smile...even when he knew he was in a little bit of trouble. May you Rest In Peace and help take care of those who went to heaven before you. God loves you!!!

My deepest sympathy to Linda and family. Johnny and I worked together for several years in Kinston and he seemed like a brother to me. Shared so many laughs. He will be missed.

Words are not adequate to describe the total professionalism that everyone at Howard Carter displayed while handling the arrangements that were made with your company. You made a very difficult time as smooth as possible not to mention that you were helpful with things that we had not thought about.

I am very sorry for your loss. He was a very nice man. In the summer of 1987, I was in a car accident on vine swamp road. He stopped, my head was bleeding, pretty bad. He stop got a cloth and held it were I was cut.He never left my side until I was put on the ambulance. I will never forget the kindness and his words reassuring me, it was going to be ok.

We recently lost my mother in law, Marie Sutton White. The staff took so much time & effort with every little detail. I also lost my Father, Murray Rouse, a couple of years ago. We also had the same professional assistance covering every detail we requested. The employees have a very caring & sensitive attitude. Thank you to Howard & Carter.
