Dear Mr. Eggleston,

The Family of Hattie G. Townsend would like to express our appreciation and thank you for donating your limousine car during the funeral services of my son Mr. Larry J. Townsend.

A well-organized and caring establishment such as yours and the grace of GOD makes it easier to except the lost of a love one. It is people like you whom take a personal interest in the way individuals are buried and how the funeral services are conducted that really means a lot to a family during these times.

Your acts of kindness will not be forgotten and may GOD continue to bless The Eggleston & Oliver Funeral Services.

Yours truly, Hattie G. Townsend

Dear Mr. Eggleston:

          We would first like to thank you for the beautiful and dignified service provided our family in the aftermath of our mother, Mrs. Elise Roundtree's death. Not only was there sensitivity and comfort in your business dealings but attention to detail comparable to funeral arrangements costing many thousands of dollars more.

          Moreover, the cosmetic skill you performed on the deceased was beyond our expectation, particularly as you had not seen her as a vibrant healthy person, neither did you have a photograph to guide you. Finally, realizing that the projected cost of the funeral would, for the most part, be a cost upon us you were ready with advice and assistance that greatly lessened our financial burden.

          For all that you did, thanks a million. We look forward to working with you in other endeavors.

With fondest regards,

DEAR CARL,
           DO YOU REMEMBER THIRTY YEARS AGO WHEN YOU WERE SIX YEARS OLD. AND YOU WERE ASSIGNED TO MY FIRST GRADE CLASSROOM? WELL. I REMEMBER IT VERY VIVIDLY, AS IF IT WERE YESTERDAY.
           YOU CAME INTO MY CLASSROOM WITH YOUR FATHER. YOU QUIETLY TOOK A SEAT. YOU DID NOT SMILE, AT SIX YEARS OF AGE. YOU WORE ON YOUR FACE, AN EXPRESSION OF SERIOUSNESS.
          THROUGHOUT THE YEAR YOU WERE WELL - MANNERED. WELL - BEHAVED. AND YOU ALWAYS STRIVED TO DO YOUR BEST WORK.
           LITTLE DID I REALIZE THAT I WAS ABOUT TO INSTRUCT A LITTLE FELLOW WHO WOULD ONE DAY BECOME A GREAT LEADER AMONG HIS PEOPLE IN THIS COUNTY. OR PERHAPS IN THE STATE OF VIRGINIA.
           I WOULD LIKE TO THINK THAT I HAD A PART. HOWEVER SMALL. IN SHAPING YOUR DESTINY TO THIS END. I AM PROUD OF YOU. I SALUTE YOU - CONGRATULATIONS!
           MAY GOD CONTINUE TO WALK BY YOUR SIDE TO BLESS AND DIRECT YOUR PATHWAY AND YOUR FUTURE ENDEAVORS FOREVER.

SINCERELY YOURS,

MRS. ERNESTINE HERNDON
YOUR FIRST GRADE TEACHER
