What Our Families are Saying... 

Hi, I just want to compliment you, Mr. Austin Layne, Jr. & family and workers on how your professional service is. I was there today for Carol Jean Richardson Jones' memorial service. It was beautiful and of course, your service made the service & beautified the Whole Picture of the Memorial.

Your Funeral Home is one of the nicest I have seen in years. To walk in the door and feel no burden at all, I just want to give props where they are due. Thank you for your lovely service. Your workers Ms. Elaine Smith & Mr. Cornell Robinson and the young lady that was at the front desk, (Lord forgive, I did not get her name, my apology) made my visit so welcoming
and homely. Continue to prosper, for God is truly in the blessing business.

Oh and thank you Mr. Austin Layne, Jr. for showing me your so large rooms/overflow area . The additional beautified room where we had the gathering & food was just Incredible. I was so comfortable, as all others were. Just want to advise you, Mr. Layne, so many people made this a conversation piece during our fellowshipping . And Yes, I agreed this is such a beautiful relaxed stress free setting especially during the time of a loved one lost. One of the guest was advising me how she was going to advise a friend that Austin A. Layne Mortuary is the place to support. Thanks so much.

Lenore from Kansas City :)

P.S. not to mention the beautiful Piano completed the Whole Ceremony! Thanks again!
