Charlie was wonderful as he guided us through the arrangements for our loved one. He even arranged for the beautiful military honors. After askiing for our wishes he took care of everything. The memory video was really beautiful.

Steve was very compassionate and understanding. My parents had my brother here in 1977, then my Dad and then my Mom. I loved how everything was done. My family looked like they were sleeping with the appearance. So when my husband died, McComas with Steve was who I chose to take care of him……Out of all the different funeral homes around, I would recommend McComas in Abingdon first and foremost the best……Steve did everything that could be done, there is not one thing I would change. He’s a very compassionate person, helps you in every possible way. McComas should be proud to have him. The other staff was also very helpful in my needs for my husband the evening of the memorial. Steve has a way of making you feel comfortable under grief you are going through and helps to make things easier for you. Awesome funeral director.

McComas Funeral Home has been a very visible important part of our community for 6 generations going back to 1808. They are active in every day happenings here and are always willing to help in a time of need. We dealt with one of the family members who we knew from school and other social circumstances. The family has helped our family for 3 generations. Holly met with us when there were other families in need. Because we knew her we shared stories, happy and sad. She is a very caring person, passionate about her work.

We had to view our dad’s body before cremation. I didn’t know what to expect. The small private room and the way he was presented was a comfort. They helped us with our wish to use a double cremation vault and transfer the remains from an existing single ceramic vessel. Thank you for helping us, it put my mind at ease. Thank you Holly for your guidance!

Holly and Staff - words seem inadequate to express our sincere appreciation for your help during this very difficult time. Not only were we touched by your professionalism but your personal care of us. You were so willing and quick to answer our questions and offer assistance to be of help. Your prompt response, thoughtfulness and caring will never be forgotten. We can’t thank McComas Funeral Home enough.

Sheila DeCourcey

Kind, thorough, thoughtful, caring, like family – they “Took my sister into their care.”

Charlie... Thanks so much to you and your staff for the caring manner shown to our family during the consultation, preparation, services, and burial of my dad, Daniel Kilby. As we saw Dad beginning to slip away there was no other funeral home even considered as you have always taken great care of other family members. It obviously takes special people to do what you all do but you are the best. McComas made a very difficult time much more bearable. I'm sure you hear this often, though. Thanks again for your compassion and please pass the accolades on to your associates.

The McComas Funeral Home staff has always been so professional and their exemplary care and personal feelings for the deceased’s family is beyond anything I have ever experienced in my life. Our family met the McComas staff when our beloved grandparents and mother and father passed away. Our relatives, parents and more recently, my beloved husband preferred McComas over any other funeral home in Harford County because of their excellent and professional services and care. My husband suddenly passed on August 27, 2016. We both had pre-arranged funerals with McComas since 2009. Most meaningful to me was the heartfelt compassion for me expressed by Holly McComas. Holly is the most professional and caring staff member I have ever known. Eddie Spellman also was very caring to me and my family.

“The caliber of care and attention given by each staff member was above and beyond. No detail was left unattended. A very sad occasion was made so very special. Words fall short of expressing my sincere gratitude. Once we discussed our wishes with Holly McComas, we stepped back and watched everything fall into place. Holly McComas and Ryan are amazing at what they do.”

“Melissa Miner was so very helpful and was a very nice person who knew her job.”

Beverly Keener

“Everything was perfect. Ralph Jackson was especially helpful, as were Steve and Charlie. My family really loved the military honors because my father was a Korean War veteran. Everything was set up beautifully. The staff was so compassionate and organized. Ralph went above and beyond helping me with videos.”

Lu Ann Carper Marzicola

They were great with my family. They went out of their way to make sure everything was fine. I was so pleased. They were just right there with you and no pressure and answered all my questions. They gave me time to think “what was I going to do.” Best staff around. Ryan - so so great with children – my 5 year old grandson stayed with him the whole time and listened to him. Ryan never got upset; he helped him get through this when (grandson) was crying. Ryan gets star of the year.

Dearest Melissa, It’s been four weeks for me to write this letter to you...and I know, gosh how I know of the pain you witness daily in your work, but I needed you to know something. You have a gift, not like the girls gets the rest of humanity gets blessed with. It’s divine because when I saw your heart break with mine, I saw God with me too. When you saw my dad put his youngest boy and name sake in a casket I saw how your heart broke with him too. You didn’t even know us and you’ve been through seeing so families do it, but I saw you and a loving heart I couldn’t believe. When you came after me after parents put me in the back seat and you put your hand to window just to let me know I wasn’t alone kept me alive that first night. I want you to know that your loving face is a gift that will forever bless anyone who gets to see it. Love geeta, Goutumm Karapurkar’s older sister...I am grateful for what you did and who you are.

I have used this firm before, and as usual they are perfectionists. They are courteous, friendly and very competent. Treat people like family. Everything was above my expectations. The video tribute was excellent. Most meaningful was the sincere helpfulness of all employees. Friendly and very professional. I was most impressed with the Tribute Video. The music and arrangement of pictures were done beautifully. So many people commented on the video. Exemplary care – Kimberly Zavrotny and Stephen Hughes and all that assisted with viewing and service on October 21. 2017. All were very helpful.

I have known the McComas Family for 48 years plus. They have genuine compassion for all those they service. They have served me well with my father mother, my parents, my 29 years old son and now my beloved husband. They treated me as if I were a member of their family. I loved the video they prepared. I will treasure it forever. Not just pictures but music and other views of the beach included. It brings me joy to view it over and over. Holly McComas is a “jewel. Kim was very attentive to me and my family.

Good location to have a funeral home in Bel Air, MD. It serves to be advantage for competition in town. I have already made up my mind to use McComas again, without hesitation. Unlike Schimunek Funeral Home, McComas was more sincere and user-friendly. Foremost, the super friendly welcome I received when arriving to investigate services. All employees gave me a warm, and more importantly, sincere-heartfelt interest in me. “Just warm fuzzies” if you will. Great service from our director, Melissa. Also, great work from undertaker who prepared my mom. Can’t remember his name, but did a super job. Can’t ever remember seeing such a natural look for a deceased person.

Melissa was very helpful and listened to our stories about our mom. She even put a little something extra in the room for us as a surprise. It was wonderful. All was good.
