What Our Families are Saying... 

The day that my 2 sons and I made arrangements for my husband and their father, Lionel Harris, was one of the most emotional times in our lives.
Ms Shamari Jackson, in her expertise, showed my sons and me compassion, kindness and professionalism. It wasn't just part of her job, it was genuine.
I sensed her kind and sweet spirit the moment I met her.She was very helpful through out the entire process. She was so attentive to our needs. She made herself available everytime we called even after everything was over. Thank you Ms Jackson and the Austin Layne staff at 7239 West Florissant for the excellent service that you provided.
