“When I found myself needing a funeral home, I wondered how to choose one. I asked a pastor from Kannapolis who was visiting us that day and he recommended James, saying he had officiated at a service there and was impressed by their comforting manner and desire to serve the family’s needs and wishes in the loveliest possible manner. I was thankful I chose James; Sam and Temple were helpful, patient and compassionate. I highly recommend James Funeral Home.”

“For my husband\'s funeral and burial in WV in January 2010, Sam was extremely professional, knowledgeable, compassionate, and caring in all aspects of his service. He made a very stressful time much easier. I highly recommend Sam\'s services for he will not leave a stone unturned. I had several people that attended the funeral service compliment Sam on what a professional job he had done.”

Hilda Rapp, North Carolina

“Sam was absolutely terrific with my family when my wife died unexpectedly in July, 2005, and he really shined with my 2 boys who were little at the time. He has a way with people in a really difficult time.”

“I have known Sam for over 10 years. He is one of those few men that one can take at his word and trust his handshake as sincere. He is a gifted man in many spheres of life, however, he is particularly in his element when serving families in the hour of death. I believe his primary goal is to provide excellent care to families in the difficult moments of life. He is professional, caring, gracious and provides excellent service. Sam is a man committed to the community of Huntersville and to those who engage his services.”

Rev. Bryan P. Crotts

“Our family chose James Funeral Home, Huntersville, to assist us when my cousin, Eddie Reynolds, passed away unexpectedly. Living three hundred miles away could have been problematic in making arrangements. From the first contact, through his Memorial Service twenty four days later, we were afforded the very personal care from a staff with unmatched integrity, compassion, patience and care. During that time I placed numerous telephone calls to them, with only one time leaving a message which was answered promptly. Each call was handled with the same care and patience as if I were their only client. Neither my cousin, Meredith Galvin nor I, felt rushed or pressured to make decisions which were handled with three way telephone conversations. They were able to offer suggestions on many details of which we needed to attend to outside the scope of the funeral home which saved us inconvenience as well as time. Any death in the family is always a very sad time, although a time we all are called on to face. It was eased greatly, by Sam James and his entire staff. I would highly recommend James Funeral Home to anyone who faces a need for their services. Ann Howard Chesapeake, Virginia”

“I can not say enough about how wonderful Sam was during one of the most horrible experiences of my life. He was attentive to detail & well organized as I am part of an unusually large family…he graciously accepted all of us with a smile! He easily put everyone at ease & saw personally to our needs for Mother. Mother’s funeral was the weekend of Sam’s wedding & he still came by the viewing to make sure we were all graciously taken care of! To me that was above & beyond the call of duty… I very highly recommend his services & I am extremely grateful for his caring & compassionate attention to those who need his services.”

Becky Dewese, Huntersville, NC

“I count Sam as a dear friend and colleague. As a pastor, I have officiated several funerals alongside Sam; he consistently shows sensitivity, care, and professionalism. I trust Sam, and I certainly recommend him!”

Rev. Mark Conforti

“I am incredibly impressed with the services coordinated by Sam James when my father died. While I can hope I won't need Sam's services anytime in the near future, I do feel safer knowing who I will lean on when I or my loved ones face the next inevitable death. I wholeheartedly endorse Sam James.”

Laurie Cameron/Laurie Bumgarner, MD

“Sam James coordinated the funeral services for my father-in-law several months ago. He made an extremely difficult time a bit easier in the way he took care of every detail. He went above and beyond in his service to our family, and we highly recommend his services.”
