Quotes Doug did such a wonderful job at the memorial service for my husband Derek. The time he took with us getting to "know" Derek made it seem like he had actual known him; not just "meeting" him through our memories. Doug even suggested putting a slideshow with music Derek liked during the service. We had only planned on having one at the reception afterwards. I'm glad he made the suggestion. You can tell Doug has a great appreciation for what he does. Thank you again Doug. ~Karie Quotes

Quotes Doug... You're Awesome!!!! The sound was great. This is literally the first year (of the 4 years that we've done the gospel brunch) that there was not a single complaint about the sound. You were amazing to work with and I hope we can work together again soon. Quotes

Quotes I just wanted to thank you for a great job done at my father's funeral service. It was a nice mixture of scripture and stories which made for a light atmosphere which is how my dad would have wanted it. More than one person said that they could tell that you cared and that you weren't simply reading off notes. It was almost like you knew him. I appreciate how well it went and I'll definitely recommend you to others. Quotes

Quotes I wanted to thank you for the great service you did for Phylis. It was Awesome, Awesome, Awesome. I would also like to thank you for your influence for me to speak. I would not have done it, but now am so glad I did. It will live with me for life all because of you. Your message was so good. It made my sisters funeral the best one I have ever been to. It was just what she would have wanted. I think you touch a lot of people and bring them closer to their loved ones. Quotes

Thank you

Quotes I would like to thank you for the special service you gave my mother Carol in February. I felt your compassion and while it was one of the worst days of my life, it was a memorable day. Everything was done with class, just as she was. Family and friends have been telling my dad what a nice service it was. Another said they'd been to quite a few funerals and never seen anthing like this one. Through the tears, everyone was smiling. What a tribute to her. The words you spoke brought such life to the pictures. I shall never forget that day. It is such an honor to meet you and experience your wonderful talents. Hopefully we can meet again under better circumstances. Quotes

Quotes Doug cared enough to visit us at our home a few days prior to the service. He was sensitive in his questions and gleaned enough information to provide a personal, caring and loving eulogy. All our friends and family members were profoundly impressed with his heartfelt presentation of Jerry Geraghty. We know now why Lincoln Memorial highly recommended Doug McCleary. He is truly the best in his field. Thank you, Doug Joanne & Suzy Quotes

Quotes When I meet with families who do not have an officiate in mind, my first recommendation is Doug McCleary. I am not easily impressed, nor am I interested in sacrificing my client families? experience by using someone I do not trust. When I make a recommendation to a family it definitely reflects on the level of service I am providing as well as on my own character and integrity. The verbiage I use is, ?If you do not have an officiate in mind, I know one who I am very comfortable recommending.? Doug has made my services personal and unique to the individual, and wonderfully memorable for my client families. Praises all around. Quotes
