Mr. Banks is the kindest, most helpful professional I have ever dealt with in my life. I highly recommend him to everyone I know! And this was the first time I've had to take care of funeral arrangements/ cremation and he made it so easy. No added stress. No hassles. Just sincere kindness and patience.
Thank you Mr. Banks! From the bottom of my heart.

I lost my mom, and We were given Mr. Sean Banks from the hospital; he was such a great support, very informative of what & who I needed to contact. And he was very patient with us because when he was asking us questions, I could not remember, I went blank, and I felt horrible, but he states that happens. I/we are so grateful for Mr. Banks he has a huge heart and patience of a saint. Cannot thank you enough. And he also does not feel the need to overcharge people in their time of grief.

Thank you, Mr. Banks, you are a good man!

My brother, sister and I retained the services of Sean A Banks Mortuary & Cremation Center in Avon Park, Florida after our brother passed away in that area. Because we surviving siblings are located in three distant states, we sought someone understanding who could communicate well through various means and guide us through making all the necessary arrangements without ever meeting in person.

I am pleased to say that Mr. Banks served us well, proving to be capable, friendly, compassionate, kind, and professional from start to finish. He handled everything with the sensitivity and ease needed in the difficult area of dealing with the remote death of a loved one.

We are forever thankful~

I would like to thank Sean Banks for the wonderful job of sending my husband Eric Leon Simpson Sr. off. Him and his staff made sure that everything was the way I wanted it done, with the help of Mrs. Shirley Johnson. I recommend his services to anyone who wants everything done right. My husband was a veteran, shiner and mason, Sean coordinated all three into the service and it was outstanding. Thank you also for the beautiful blanket that you presented me with all of his organization printed on it. Sean I thank you again for making everything less stressful for me in my time of sorry.
