Dear Hughey Staff, Thanks so much for your time and effort with regard to the many details great and small surrounding dad's end of life events. Your ability to humanize and normalize this sacred reality is very much appreciated. And just like decades ago as a child, once in the older house portion, I get lost and can't find the back door! Thanks again. A gift to "The Game Plan" has been made in your honor.

Dear Susan, Carmen, Marsha, and all, We are all so grateful for the kind care of our family when and since Pete died. It is no wonder Hughey Funeral Home has been so successful over many years and continues to be so. I know Charles would be proud. He and Pete are laughing about the "little mishap." Although the gift of the urns was not necessary, it is greatly appreciated. May God bless you all as you continue caring for others. Sharon and Family

Marty, I want to thank you for your kindness, patience, and understanding. Funerals are not fun or pleasant to have to plan. But you and the Hughey Funeral Home family made it as pain free as possible. Myself and the whole Janet Clark family would like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making her day special.

Marty and Mike, I wanted to thank you for how you handled my grandmother, Barbara Lipe's funeral last week.

Thank you, Libby Tucker

To Everyone at Hughey's, I wanted to thank you for the beautiful flowers you sent for Jerry's funeral, but I also wanted to thank you for allowing Jerry to be a part of your "work family." You all meant the world to him - his extended family that he was so proud to be a part of. In one of his file folders, he had every newspaper article that Hughey Funeral Home had ever put in the Register News! Thanks again for your kindness and all of your help and support. Sincerely, Lisa Ellis

The staff were so helpful and supportive throughout the entire process of taking care of my father-in-law. Having never been through the process before, they were knowledgeable - letting us know exactly what to expect and the decisions we would need to make; and were supportive and accommodating with everything we wanted to do for his service. They made an emotionally difficult process much easier, and the result was a beautiful service my father-in-law would have been proud of.

I always loved your funeral home, it felt timeless and the lighting was soft, the chapel had those gorgeous stained glass windows, the stairs were elegant, the fountain added ambiance. I was so jealous that someone lived there. It honestly made me care about funerals I would not have otherwise attended.
December 10, 2021
Words cannot express the gratitude that I have for all of the wonderful people of your business. So I will just say, "Thank You" again. May God continue to bless you and your families. Always.

Dear Friends, Today I received the near Christmas ornament with Ed's picture and hung it on my little 3 foot tree immediately. I want to thank you for all of your help and kindness: - The private viewing - Marty's help with details - The beautiful book, "Lift Up Thine Eyes." It is truly unique. I spent an afternoon pursuing it. Marty was so much help to us in our time of need. May God bless you all this Christmas and in this New Year. In his love, Marge and Family

My Hughey Team, Thank you for being so awesome to work with this year with my mom's service, Donna Schofield's service, and Linda Akins service in 2019. 2020 has been a tough year for sure and I'm so thankful to have a hometown that welcomes me with open arms.

My dad chose Hughey Funeral Home because we all grew up in Mt Vernon and Hughey has always been the absolute best about caring about other people's deceased loved ones. They did the utmost amazing job on my brother Justin Marlowe. He was taken from all of us way to soon and it was so heartbreaking but you guys made us feel like family and gave us your absolute best in our time of need. Thank you for doing such an amazing job with my baby brother and putting that lil smirk/smile on his face because that was so him and made it a little easier to say our goodbyes. Because Justin looked at peace and that is how we would all wanna remember him. Thank you Hughey Funeral Home for doing an amazing job. I know when the time comes you will be doing the rest of our family because I trust you guys with all of us. Huge thank you for your care and support.

Marty, Thank you for being so accommodating during our funeral experience. You made a challenging situation as pain free as possible. We rushed you, but you responded efficiently and graciously. I'm sure we were unorthodox in our approach to our loss, but you accepted that, dealt with it, and did everything we asked of you. Thank you to the entire staff. Sandra Clark

I just want to take a moment to say thank you. You made a difficult time in my life a little easier. You were the Stevenson family choice for my grandparents and my dad's funeral and now my mother's. I now understand why you were chosen -- you are wonderful! Thank you.
Joetta (Stevenson) Campbell
I've been to many funeral homes in the Mount Vernon area and in other towns and states and have yet to find one more efficient than Hughey's. Other funeral homes can sure learn from Hughey's. They care so much about the family of the deceased and make everything to exceed expectations. There aren't words to express what the staff at Hughey's and when you attend a funeral there, you know it will be the best day in and day out.
Kenneth Michael Brown
Our most sincere appreciation and thanks for the beautiful job you did for our mother. Everything was very well organized. Thank God for people like you who are able to perform such a difficult talk at such a difficult time for other; the emotions of other in such a considerate, compassionate and professional manner. Heartfelt Thanks,
Marcena Willams and Family
From the moment my dear father passed away on January 13th, the Hughey family and everyone we met at the funeral home accommodated our every need. From implementing an arrangement in norther Illinois, to each and every detail of both services in Mount Vernon, to coordinating the graveside service in Virginia--all was handled with the highest level of expertise and professionalism, as well as a genuine concern for our family. These qualities were exemplified by everyone with whom we had contact. An otherwise arduous task was carried forth by the funeral home, leaving us wanting for nothing. All the services provided showed exceptional taste and the utmost respect. I know my father would have been very pleased and extremely grateful.
The Pace Family
Our family holds Hugheys to the very highest esteem. Every member of the staff could not have been kinder or more understanding.When the time comes to deal with all the necessary arrangements you can walk away knowing you have left your loved one in the best hands possible. Thanks again to everyone but most of all to Tim for making the trip back to be a part of it all. Thanks especially to Buckeye.
Don and Carmen, Just a note to tell you what a terrific job you did at the funeral service of Alicia Wilkey-Heck. It was very touching to watch the way that you treated Alicia's teenage daughter with such tenderness and care as she told her mom goodbye for the last time. Jerry was also fantastic conducting the interment at Knob Prairie Cemetery and again involving the young lady in the proceedings. You all do a fantastic job with families and services at Hughey Funeral Home. You are a blessing to our community! God Bless, Tim
