To the Carlton L. Gray Funeral and Cremation Service staff, I would like to say "Thank you, thank you, thank you!" You and your entire staff walked with us through every obstacle imaginable and continued to guide us in the right direction utilizing your expertise at every step. I will never forget how you treated my sister and the Jones family with dignity and respect at the same time honoring and following through with the request of the family. This great act of kindness will not go unnoticed. I humbly ask God to continue to bless you, your staff, and your business.

Mr.Gray On behalf of the Tyler-Cannon family, we can not begin to express the overwhelming satisfaction of such an impeccable, professional presentation of our mother, Annette Tyler. Losing a loved one is already painful, and the difficult task at hand of planning a homegoing service. Both of our parents were entrusted to your establishment. Just knowing that our loved ones were placed in the care of a "Caring, professional" staff gave us comfort and lessen the worries. Mr. Calvin Cherry's act of professionalism, attentive to every detail was impeccable. He took the time to explain every step, make adjustments which were not many. Having a staff as observant as yours makes a "Grand", statement of their leadership. Mr. Gray your ability to secure the horse-drawn carriage for my mother's final mode of transportation to her final resting place, lifted any questions of granting her last request. Mr. Gray we the family of Annette Tyler can not say, "Thank you" enough for an "Outstanding" service. May God continually bless you and the staff. Sincerely Bonita Dunn and Tyler-Cannon Family

We wish to thank Carlton Gray and staff for their professionalism and kindness and making a potentially difficult time one which was eased. From initial contact onwards the organization and planning ran smoothly and was very person-centered. Thank you from us all in enabling my wife’s farewell to be the special event we wanted it to be. We would whole heartedly recommend your services to anyone in a similar situation.

Dear Mr. Gray Words of admiration and thankfulness can never express the exceptional job your establishment performed for two dearly beloved sisters who died within the same week. The families of Suretha S. Crawford and Clementine S. Townsend will forever hold your establishment in high esteem. We realize the sisters' deaths were probably a shock to you as well as to our families. We had been informed to prepare for Suretha's death but not Clementine's. Each of them looked simply glamorous. We received numerous calls commenting on their appearances as they laid in repose. Their hair, attire, makeup, jewelry, caskets and floral arrangements set the tone for the occasion. How you managed to prepare and conduct two related family members services was astounding. It gives us great pleasure to compliment a wholesome, cordial, polite, poised and sensational funeral home staff. We dare not complain or find fault. Your unique way of conducting funerals is superb. Again, let us take this opportunity to say thank you from the depths of our hearts. Sincerely, The Crawford, Townsend and Sapp Families

Words can not express our sincere gratitude to Mr. Carlton L. Gray and his staff for their professional, courteous, and personable care given to us during the loss of our love one, "Mr. Robert Earl Evans." Although sad at the loss of my child, my family and I were pleased and totally at peace after our initial meeting. We were very happy that our expectations were carried out to make this much easier to bear. A special thanks to our drivers, Mr. Butch Snelling and Mr. Angelo Johnson for taking such good care of us. May God continuously bless you and your staff.

I am extremely appreciative of the care that Carlton L. Gray and his staff gave me and my family during our time of bereavement. During the most emotionally draining time of my life, the passing of my father, Santee Sanders, JR., they gently guided me through the process. The combination of their current technology, network of contacts, and professionalism made the journey a lot easier to navigate. Carlton L. Gray along with his staff were always available, answering every question, and were genuinely interested in my family's wishes for our loved one. My father, who had fought valiantly for more than a year, looked handsome and at peace, as if he'd never been sick, when he was laid to rest. Based on my experience with Mr. Gray, he runs his business with integrity and feels that having a good name is just as important, if not more so, as the bottom line. I feel that my family and I got more than what we paid for. Carlton L. Gray and his staff were an answered prayer.

To the Carlton Gray family: We will forever be indebted to you for all that you have done for the Farrar, Hartsfield, Jones, Temple, and Weaver family. You recently extended your hand in our hour of need when our dear mother transitioned from earth to glory. The ministry that you offered to us cannot be measured in words but we would like to take this moment to try to exercise the gift of expression through script. The level of professionalism that you presented from the very beginning to the end was of the highest quality of service that anyone could ask for. The courtesy that you showed to the family and friends of the late Esther Mae Farrar was supreme. Your entire staff epitomized kind acts such as: sympathy, empathy, patience, and compassion. We will forever acknowledge that you and your staff treated our mom with the dignity that she deserved; that you were focused on our wants and needs, and that you went above and beyond, by incorporating videography in her “homegoing” celebration. Carlton Gray, your ministry is a ministry that left an imprint on the lives of our family and friends. May God continue to bless you and your ministry! Sincerely, Esther Mae Farrar’s Family

The family of the late Reverend Joseph T. Cheek would like to thank Mr. Gray and his staff for a job well done. Losing a loved one is very difficult and having the Carlton Gray staff to guide us each step of the way from insurance to picking the right casket and flowers were absolutely wonderful. Our hearts are still heavy but having people still tell us how great my dad looked and what a beautiful home going he had, it was all because of your professionalism and the kind way that you dealt with our family. My family will recommend your services to anyone that is in need of professionalism, style, friendliness and affordability . please except our heart felt thanks and we will never forget you.
