In addition to the kindness and sensitivity of staff at our original meeting, I found the "after care" especially helpful. I thought I would have to navigate through grief and legal matters by myself with help from family, but McComas has provided a written road map. Each employee did his job perfectly.

Services were for our Dad. Our Mom was very thankful for everything done and was so appreciative of everyone's kindness and attention to detail and emotions of the family. Everyone was so kind and helpful, they could not have been more wonderful. Everyone was great; Kasi was absolutely spectacular !

McComas Funeral Home is an excellent funeral home. They are very compassionate and professional. They thought of everything. They went above and beyond to make our sad time less difficult. They surprised the family with a special farm scene on the vault. It was so thoughtful and beautiful. Our family truly appreciated their kindness. Everyone was great. We worked with Melissa Kennedy and Howard McComas IV. They were wonderful.

Ryan took time with us explaining everything letting my brother and I discuss things among ourselves. I liked the way the partitions were pulled when the casket was closed. This was a concern. All was done with concern for my brother and I. I felt very peaceful at the funeral home. I am glad they have a Grief Support each month. Ryan was very professional yet compassionate.

Our dearest Kylie Rose passed on April 3rd 2019 she was 2 years 6 months and 6 days old. We were lost and had no ideal where to go or what to do with ourselves. Holly was exceptional. She helped our family every single step of the way. We could not have made it through this tough time without her. Sierra and Jordan will be forever grateful of her and McComas Funeral home for giving their baby the best service. Thank you for everything xoxo. With Love, Kylies NaNa and the whole family.

McComas Funeral Home did a phenomenal job on the service for our loved one. They went above and beyond what we thought was possible to accommodate our requests. The aspect that was most meaningful was the fact that they went out of their way to be sure we were comfortable and took the time we needed to pay our respects. Every one of the staff members were great but specifically Holly McComas for her compassion and concern for us and Kasi Hughes for her knowledge and gentle demeanor.

The detail and courtesy shown could not have been better. There was nothing left to improve. Everything perfect. Arrangements were complicated by fact the body had to be flown to another city for burial. Everything went off without a hitch on both ends. Melissa Kennedy-preplanning, Ryan Hughes, Charlie Emge; all were excellent in all aspects, showing great deal of care and concern.

I am writing today to commend all of your staff that were in attendance during the services held for my brother, Richard Hisley, at Trinity Lutheran Church, on Feb. 15 & 16th. Such kind and sincere people you are. Their demeanor and professionalism was amazing. Both my wife and I were truly touched by the love they showed. We could sense their compassion and understanding . It was palpable and a comfort to our family. I was also struck by the length of time you have been in existence. Amazing! I now know why.

The McComas Family and staff were so very thoughtful and kind during an extremely difficult time in our family. McComas did a beautiful job on our sister, she looked amazing. They are extremely knowledgeable, patient and kind. Their compassion and attention to detail for families and loved ones is superb. Customer service at its finest.

Charles Emge and Cora were just the best you could ever ask for! God bless them for their ability to be sensitive to people’s needs at a time when it is needed most. Charles let us, 3 daughters, help close the casket at the end. He was so kind and patient and soft spoken to us – we will never forget how sensitive he was to our emotions. The entire staff was phenomenal! Hats off to Charles Emge and Cora P.!!

McComas’ reputation precedes them. Never heard anyone ever speak ill of their services. They are definitely part of the community for many years. I was very satisfied. I was not rushed or pressured. They made me feel as well treated as if I were part of their family – that they felt my loss. All were great. Holly McComas not only tucked blankets around us at the cemetery, it was very cold and windy, but took her own scarf off and wound it around my neck.

They have continued to serve the Community Family the same way the Grandparents did. What comfort and satisfaction to say goodbye to loved ones so respectfully.

My wife’s cancer allowed for a pre-arranged funeral. McComas was excellent in all aspects of details, accommodation, follow-through and respect. Specific aspects that were most meaningful included sensitivity to circumstances and needs; responsiveness to any questions or modifications; and follow through across time. All of the staff were exemplary.

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.

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.

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.

I could not be more satisfied. Everyone associated with this firm was extremely helpful and compassionate. They were extremely sensitive to our grief. The memorial video was delightfully creative and uplifting. I have already recommended them to anyone that would listen to keep in mind for their future needs. Holly McComas in the best! From the moment we entered the establishment we were greeted in a friendly manner and the funeral director that we first met with to select the details of the service could not have been more friendly or compassionate! Charles Emge couldn’t do enough for us - he was very helpful and accommodating. Linda for her patience and assistance with our insurance needs.

Katherine Rausch

All aspects of every person were excellent. There was no need of improvement. They were very patient, informative, understanding, wise, careful to detail and listened well to wants and needs and went beyond my expectations. Holly McComas was outstanding in every way. No one could have topped her compassion or knowledge.

Lorraine

As my husband passed at home, the people who came for him took all the time we needed to say goodbye. Were helpful and empathetic to the situation. Can’t remember names but everyone who spoke to us on the phone or at the home were exceedingly professional and considerate.

Vicki Dowling

I like the special touches you did – bookmarkers, videos, etc. Everyone was so kind and loving. Care, concern, sympathy helped a rough time be a bit easier. Stephen Hughes was awesome. Shirl was so compassionate. Mary Jane Ciufo is a special friend to me.

Mary Folus

Kasi Hughes was wonderful from the beginning to the end. I’m not sure I could have gotten through this without her.

Sandra Cohen

Ms. McComas handled everything so well. She made it a good experience for such a difficult time. Everything was done in a timely fashion. We went on Thursday and by Saturday everything was taken care of. The follow-up has been excellent!

Denise Kirtley

The family did not have to worry about anything. Everything was perfect. All your staff cared!

Regina Quinn

The service (all) was excellent. Everyone was so caring and helpful from our first visit there. Even after the funeral I was given a Thank You package with lots of helpful info. Charlie Emge was always there for me and my children no matter what we needed. Everything he did was excellent.

Shirley Day

I was very impressed with how caring and compassionate all the staff were to our family.

Betty Dunham

The follow up visit was greatly appreciated. Everyone needs help when you start something new. A lot of answers were given to my questions and I was pointed in the right direction. Again, it shows caring and it takes someone’s time. Like a big hug when you really need one. Most meaningful was the time that was taken for the things that were done. To show that thought and caring was taken to show you the understanding and compassion of your loss. The rose that was left on the bed and card will always be remembered and cherished. It showed that it wasn’t just a job, it showed caring for people’s feelings. Everyone that I had the pleasure of meeting and dealing with showed consideration, kindness and compassion which will always be remembered. Thank you.

Charles Miner, exemplary care for answering my questions and not rushing me through this experience.

Thank you for your help with everything. They took pictures of all the flowers and screenshot all of the comments online, and then sent them to us. Also, the bookmarks were a wonderful touch. We appreciate everything McComas did for us. Holly McComas was excellent in handling everything! Also the fact that someone answered the phone at 3am on Saturday impressed us.

Pauletta Adkins

The funeral home is like family here in Harford County. Everything was great, very good.

Very helpful during pre-planning phase and all through viewing, funeral and graveside. Couldn’t be more pleased. If I didn’t know, the level of caring and services throughout, it felt like our family was the only ones being served. I will sing their praises and tell my friends.

The McComas Family are the most caring, wonderful people to work with. Ryan Hughes was so caring and attentive. Truly a professional caring person. Several members of the McComas Family expressed their sympathy to the family which was very comforting.. Ryan was extraordinary; he went above and beyond to accommodate us. Also, Judy McComas was helpful with legal questions.

Arlene Justice

To all the staff, we want to thank you for all that you did to help our family through this difficult time in our lives, Ira Kitts (Dad) looked forward to passing and being with his wife of 70 years. You made that an easy and beautiful thing. Thank you all for your kindness and help.

Belinda Kuszynski

“I can’t tell you how AMAZING you handled my “Hank’s” ceremony. You definitely exceeded and went way above my expectations!! I have told and will continue to tell everyone I know that there is no other place to take their loved one! I feel horrible but I need to give a special, special thank you to the woman who spent the day with me and I think it was “Tiffany” and I am so sorry. But she was FANTASTIC!! From beginning to end, she could not have been any more attentive and helpful to all my needs. She is an ANGEL!! To all of you at McComas – Thank you!!”

Lori Erck

Everything was wonderful. Melissa took wonderful care of us. They made a beautiful background and a custom blanket and signing book for our daughter that went above and beyond everything we could have asked for.

Everyone was wonderful….it’s a shame my husband died but all helped through this difficult time. The professionality was great. Charles and Ralph the video guy were excellent. Most meaningful was all the kindness and care.

Dear McComas Staff: There really are no words to express the gratitude we have for your professionalism, thoughtfulness and caring during the loss of our father, David J. Baur. We have used both McComas and other local funeral establishments in the past, but there is no comparison to the comfort of McComas’ services. Every step is personal, thoughtful, and carried with ease. We will never forget the surprise graveside gifts of the train vault plaque and train whistles. (Our family collects dated Christmas ornaments, and we have chosen to use the train whistle as our ornament this year.) In addition, by providing legal support, you have not only saved us financially, but helped to guide us through the immense maze of estate management. Again, thank you for being there at a most difficult and confusing time. We will always carry you in our hearts, and share our fond McComas experience with others. Sincerely, Heidi M. Holthaus and Family

Heidi Holthaus

To all of the McComas staff, a sincere thank you for every aspect of your caring, professional support through a difficult time for our family. From the first pre-planning meeting with Ryan to the finalizing of the memorial visitations, every staff member understood what we wanted to do and supported us. The video Charlie assembled was inspiring and the ease that Holly and Melissa created when family and friends arrived was comforting. All of you went beyond responding to our needs; you anticipated what was needed and provided compassion, respect and understanding. I cannot thank you enough. Stephen Buchness

It’s never a pleasure to deal with funeral issues but for our friend, Howard, and his staff particularly Charlie Emge for his aid in directing my son’s funeral arrangements. We were exceptionally satisfied with all parts of the service that was given to us by McComas Funeral Home.

Charlotte Dawson

Family owned understands the needs of a family and provides everything needed respectfully and in a loving manner. When picking up, the two gentlemen were caring and respectful. Did not feel rushed or pushed into anything unnecessary. Staff to recognize include Charles Miner to start and everyone in between and ending our family’s needs.

Rita Herpel

McComas Funeral Homes staff exceeded every expectation for my husband’s ceremony. We buried my father 17 years ago had his service here as well as my uncle about 18 months ago. My husband had his first wife’s ceremony here as well. They were spectacular! The attention, the caring, the sympathy and empathy. The details, no pressure! I really felt like they truly cared about me, like a family member would. Love them all!

Lori Erck

McComas was awesome! Could not have found any better organization; very pleased. Kindness, courteous service, professional. Everyone I had contact with was outstanding.

Robert James

Nothing could have improved the services. Everything was perfect.
