Thank you Mr. And Mrs. Nelson for meeting our needs during such a devastating time.

The Nelsons were available to us whenever we needed them. They even put together the photo slides for us. At the end of the service, Mr Nelson had taken care of gathering things for us and the keepsakes they gave us of my brother, Vernon “Dean” Branham, will forever be cherished. Others that attended the service commented on how respectful and professional Mr Nelson and his team was.

They made this process extremely easy and treated us with the utmost respect and professionalism. Mr. Nelson's personal care of my father eased me as well.

On behalf of the family of Ms. Ethel Belton I would like to thank the management and entire staff of Nelson's Funeral Home. The professional service and empathetic care was demonstrated beginning with Mr. & Mrs. Nelson during our initial encounter, continued with expressions of sympathy from the staff and did not stop until the driver had dropped off the immediate family after services were rendered. They were there to offer a helping hand, a prayer of comfort and a word of encouragement. The beautiful detailing and picture on the blanket and the hand stitched handkerchiefs just brought tears to our eyes knowing we had such wonderful treasures to keep of our loved one. The loss of a loved one is a very difficult time but having someone like the Nelson's Funeral Home provide your services eases a lot of the burden of grief that you feel. We will be forever grateful for the dignified and caring service provided. May God Bless and keep each one of you in His care!!

My father, Celester Jackson was funeralized on 1/27/2018 and Mr. Nelson handled the arrangements. We had to transfer my father’s body from NJ to Ridgeway and from the very beginning Mr. Nelson was great. Not only did he get us in contact with a funeral home in NJ to handle the transfer, he walked us through the process from start to finish. He lessened the burden on my family, which allowed us to focus on other things regarding my father. He exceeded my expectations on my father’s service, and I have received nothing but positive feedback on how beautiful his home going service was. I wish I could give Mr. Nelson and his team 10 stars, because they definitely deserve it!!!!!!!!!

"Nelson's Funeral Home Rendering Services from the Heart." This is a very true statement! We thank Eddie, Jackie, Ms. Dot and the entire staff of the Nelson's Funeral Home for their love. The planning of the service was compassionate and professionally organized. We were never confused because every question was appropriately and timely answered. An example, our mother, Frances Tucker Brown, passed away in another state and the service rendered in this particular state was inappropriate. Eddie met with us and was very specific about the corrections he was going to make. We were very impressed with the final results and the timely resolutions. We highly recommend Nelson's Funeral Home because of their "Compassionate, Expert and Personalized Services". Eddie and staff, we are forever grateful, thanks.

On behalf of the Jones family we would like to thank Eddie and Jackie Nelson for taking great care of our loved one. During this difficult time. Mr. Nelson went above and beyond his call of duty to make sure we were satisfied. We was very pleased with everything no question or suggestion went unanswered. Mr. Nelson made trips back and forth to our residence just to make sure we knew exactly what we were getting. Not only did they do a great job with the home going service for my grandmother they also did my grandfather Mr. John H. Jones in Dec. 2015 and my mother Deborah E. Jordan in January 2014. With saying that our family has been through a lot these last couple of years and Mr. Nelson made our final wishes for our loved ones at ease. Sure these times are hard but they make sure your comfortable and they treat you with respect. So again we would like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for taking care of our loved ones during the most difficult times. We love you and we thank you. From the Jones family 💗

Re: Maggie (Small) Brown: The Nelson Funeral Home is a class act. The service and patience given to us during this sad time was unquestionable. Mr. and Mrs. Nelson thought of everything. They was also available during the funeral ceremony at grave side. They made the sad occasion a little easier to bear. We was a large crowd and that did not seem to bother them during the planning stages of my mother funeral. We are appreciative and thankful to you for your attentive service. I would highly recommend The Nelson Funeral Home of Ridgeway SC to everyone. Beautiful chapel and everything was orderly. My mother was given a beautiful home going. Thank you Mr. and Mrs. Nelson.

I just want to thank Mrs. Nelson, Mr. Nelson, and their staff for the awesome work they did for our family during our loss. We were highly impressed with how everything was done with precision, attention to detail, and with love. We thank them for being professional, but still making us feel like we were their family and like they were caring for their own loved one. I am thankful my father was able to befriend "Mr. Eddy" and have him help to send him off in style and with care. I wish nothing more but continued success for this business. Thanks again so much!

As 14 November 2015 approaches fondest of memories flood my mind of my Mamma, Eva Wilhelemenia Benson Harris who transitioned her earthly life on Wednesday 14 November 2012. From the time Eddie was called until today "Rendering Service From The Heart" is still felt by my family. It was Eddie and his exceptional Staff at Nelson's that made Mamma's transitioning bearable. Everything that could possibly be said arranged or done was there at our disposal. Every part of our experience was made painless and even funny at times. We will never forget what was done for us and many other family members that came after us in need of service. All of us have been pleased and moved beyond our imaginations for all of the little as well as major things Eddie, Jackie and his mother and Staff provided us at a time like that. Therefore on behalf of Mamma and all of us the Harris and Benson families we pray your continued success and God's Favor upon your Business "Billy". Your expertise and professionalism is still appreciated even today three years later.
