Don and Staff, We want to say a BIG "Thank You" to all of you for being so kind, helpful, and loving during this difficult time. We know Mom was looking down on us that day and smiling with how you all had everything just perfect, even with a few "tweaks" from us. Again, we say a big "Thank You!" You're the best!

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. I love the ornament, such a nice touch!

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.

Conn Bancroft

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
