My daughter, age 51 passed away due to ovarian cancer while under Hospice Care in a Ohio rest home. Having a loved one pass away in another state brings all sorts of challenges - communicating with an out of state funeral home, getting the required power of attorney’s, death certificates, arranging transportation of the body, etc. Richard was out at this time after surgery, but Sharon took the ball and ran with it, always keeping me informed of her progress. During this time my friend of 25 years and girlfriend of 13 had a brain hemorrhage which left her paralyzed from the waist down. We were told it was because of a past injury. This left me as ill as a snake on a hot plate. Sharon and staff were very understanding, and my lifetime friend, Charles Whitehead gave me a good “talking to”, and prayed for me which helped immensely. Regrettable, the day after Marie walked for the first time she fell and never recovered. I can never repay the outstanding service and sincere understanding provided by Richard Boles Funeral Services!
My mother passed away in 2001 and Richard & Sharon became a part of our extended family. Anytime I see them they are genuine and care about the well being of others. My father passed away 9/3/2020 and lived in another state when he wanted to be cremated and remain, however the experience I had with that funeral home was very cold and unprofessional. I want to say how much I appreciate all The Boles and their staff do to comfort families in a time of emotional instability.
We have just lost our daughter. To make things worse we lost her during COVID 19 which meant nothing was normal. If there is anything normal when you lose a child. But Richard and Sharon, and staff did everything they could to make our loss the best they could while following all of the new state laws. Thank you so much With much love.
The Boles have been serving our family since at least 2000 when my uncle died in January and my father died one month later. The Boles and their staff help guide you through every step and every decision with both professionalism and kindness. However this is not what made our family continue to call on Richard Boles Funeral Service over the past 19 years. It is the continued concern and kindness that Richard and Sharon Boles have for your family long after the final service. It’s your mother receiving a call from Richard Boles 6 months after your father’s burial to see how she’s doing, it’s Richard stopping and asking if you’re ok or if there’s anything he can do when you’re sitting at your daddy’s grave crying a year later, it’s both Richard and Sharon remembering your names long after your loved one has passed. Over the years staff at Richard Boles Funeral Service May have changed but Richard and Sharon Boles have not.
MY MOTHER PASSED IN OCT. 2017,THEN MY FATHER PASSED IN MARCH OF 2018 AND MR. AND MRS. BOLES AND THEIR STAFF WERE SO KIND AND PROFESSIONAL DURING OUR TIME OF LOSS.I WOULD
Both of my grandparents passed away in 2015 and you were so kind to extend your services to make those days as good as they could have been. George and Mary Brown of Laurel Hill were more parents than grandparents. They were and still are my whole world. Not a day goes by that I don't think about them and those last days before laying them to rest. The service was all I could have asked for, and nothing I could have accomplished on my own. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. - Alice Porath
