    "Mr. John Tucker and Ellis Funeral Home in Nashville, TN treated me and my family with the utmost professional, empathetic, and obliging attitude imaginable. The entire staff is comforting and concerned for the wishes of the family as well as the loved one. I simply cannot say enough positive phrases for this establishment. We were made to feel as if we were part of their family. The slightest wish was granted. I wanted a particular picture to be the ending of the video and it was "Certainly, no problem!". Ms. Virginia, video editor/graphic artist deserves kudos as well. I would certainly recommend this establishment and WILL." Read more
