This is WAAAAAY overdue . . almost 3 yrs overdue but I told brother Amari Adams that when "the dust settled" that I would give my feedback. . .so here it goes
Sergeant Michael Antonio Williams Jr . . . Dad . . .passed away unexpectedly on Friday Dec 2nd 2016. I Bless the Lord that he allowed me to have the moment preceding his passing away in the manner in which it happened . . .any other way and I might still be dealing with the emotion of it all in a not so positive way. . .. THANK YOU JESUS!!
Because it was unexpected, so was the planning, preparation, arrangement . . and oh yea what Funeral Home would help take care of all this. We didn't have a Will, it wasn't something we talked about persay and for the most part Dad was in good health for his age so this was . . . or could have been . . . a bit overwhelming. But through fervent prayer, & supplication we received really good feedback on 2 Funeral Homes and we decided . . "well let's just go with Adams since they are closer to the Church." Little did we know how impactful that decision would be!
I believe within 2.5 rings of the telephone . . . on Saturday mind you because we had to tell the hospital morgue who was handling the body . . Bro Amari answered the phone. I don't remember exactly what we talked about but I just remember his calm, professional and GENUINE EMPATHY he consistently delivered even after I butchered his name more than a few times. Just that quick I realized we made the right decision, but I had NO IDEA of the level of service that Amari and the team would provide. Every time I called or had a question, within MINUTES, someone was there to follow up. When we began to discuss some of the particulars, the level of detail Amari was able to give us to consider was surreal . . .down to the color of the tie and type of hair timming for dad! We wound up going to a different burial site than the one that was highly recommended, but even that process can with an extreme amount of quality information that really made it tough to decide . . .but not once was Bro Amari "pushy" or overbearing
the Friday preceding the funeral the Adams team gave me a call to come to the office and I'm sure I had to sign/fill out something, but the only thing I remember that day was seeing that beautiful mural of Sergeant Michael A. Williams on the "throw" and it took everything in me not to whale like a 6yr old.
I haven't read any of the testimonials, but I'm sure that several (if not all) have some common theme/experience similar to mine which speaks to the consistency of the character of the Adams Staff. But I thank God that even in a moment like that, and even with them "just doing their job" they were able to make it personal and perfect enough for my family and I
God Bless the Adams family, staff, business, vendors, supporters, contributors and the like. May they be Blessed going out, Blessed going in forever all thy days in Jesus Name we declare and decree . . . AMEN!
