I thank God that he led my mind to Adkins Memorial Funeral Home to entrust my cousin's funeral arrangements to. I am TRULY satisfied with everything that they provided for us. Gabriel is such a highly professional man who treated us with a great amount of dignity, honor, and respect. He made such a difficult task into an easy one. His pleasant personality took a heavy load off of our shoulders. He is well knowledgeable in this profession. He knows what he is doing. His employees were just as nice. Oh, and the way that he made her look. Nothing less than perfect. He knew how to make her look BEAUTIFUL. I have received some wonderful comments from how the services was carried out to the way she looked. My final statement to Gabriel is: JOB WELL DONE AND KEEP UP THE EXCELLENT QUALITY OF WORK THAT YOU PROVIDE. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!

Gabriel, you have been a very compassionate young man! In my time of bereavement, I was really out of it…I couldn’t think and my heart was hurting very badly! I didn’t know what to do or anything! I had lost my better half and I was in another world, so to speak! However, you and your staff showed me the comfort I so desperately needed. You never rushed me, you were always helpful and were sympathetic as i tried to get through the task of giving the man (who was such a loving part of me) a wonderful send-off to be with God. I’ve heard some who went to my husband’s home going say that it was a very classy, and beautiful service! That could NOT have been said without the professionalism, sympathy and care you and Adkins Memorial Funeral Home provided me! The gifts (including the memorial blanket and the memorial hardback book), your pricing and your concern made my unpleasant reason for calling you, a sincere blessing. I truly pray for God to continue to work through you such that you will continue to endure as the awesome young business man that you are! Blessings to you and your businesses!

Gabriel, Thank you and your staff
for everything that you did and the excellent service that you all provided
to us in the loss of our mom (Mother Isabella Skinner. When we first called you with questions you were honest, caring and upfront about everything. Thank you for the kindness and compassion shown to our family. The restoration on my mom was excellent. We couldn't have asked for anything better. A special thanks to you Mr. Hughes. You all took a very difficult time and made it less stressful. The Crowning and the delicious food was awesome. We will highly recommend your excellent services to any family. Abundant Blessings to you and your staff. We will keep you all in prayer as we ask that you do the same for us.

We would highly recommend Adkins Memorial Funeral Services because of the compassion and professionalism they bestowed to our family in preparing the celebration of life and home going services for Lillian Spence and Troy Jones. They did a remarkable and outstanding job in making the remains of our loved ones "casket sharp". Gabriel Adkins, owner and operator, showed himself to be trustworthy and dependable. He carried out the services for each of our loved ones as we directed him. He was prompt to communicate concerns and suggestions and follow through so that every aspect of the service was addressed. Ultimately, he made this difficult time a lot less stressful. We would not hesitate to use them again.

It’s unbelievable My Mom recently & unexpectedly had 2 prepare 4 the Death of my Brother Demetrius Staten in Greensboro NC. The stress of unexpected death And fact that family burial sites are In Elizabeth city NC could have made this Unbearable!…But Adkins Funeral Home IMMEDIATELY UPON NOTICE Stepped in that Day & Told My Mom Don’t Worry about Anything. They immediately picked up the body and had My Brother in Elizabeth City ASAP and hadn’t stressed my Mother about 1 Dime!!! The Compassion, the Talent of having My Brorher look so Good was Heaven Sent. The way they took care of My Mother and this family, Fed Us Good Food and made Us Feel Like All we had to worry about was Grieving, Adkins is Truly God Sent and Understands what Families go thru. I would recommend them 100% with All My Heart and the STATEN FAMILY CANT THANK ADKINS FUNERAL HOME ENOUGH!!! Demetrius Staten resting in Peace. Thankyou Adkins.

Mr. Adkins you and your staff were phenomenal. Putting a loved one to rest is physically and emotionally challenging. Often the families must work together to create the experiences and gather finances. This brings another whole level of issues. Your ability to remain professional and courteous throughout the process mad this process so much easier. Your kindness and patience can not be overstated. You treated us like we had a million dollars to spend and trust me we did not, and you knew that as well.

Unfortunately, I have had the opportunity to experience many funerals with many providers. I have been personally involved in more that I care to recall. I have come to expect a certain level of service. Adkins Memorial Funeral Home exceeded all expectations. I would recommend this establishment above them all to all surrounding areas. The upcharge to have your services in Chesapeake or Virginia Beach or other areas in Hampton Roads are more than compensated in the type of services you receive and amenities.

The extras that you provide brought our experience over the top. The plaques and presentation and the meals. Who does that? I was expecting some dried-up ham and maybe some cabbage. What we received was choices of freshly fried chicken white or dark meat and sweet rolls! You were on time; you were dressed professional and you provided all that was promised. From the bottom of our broken hearts we would like to thank you for the finally service you provide for Esther Icelean. She deserved the BEST and that is exactly what you gave her. Well done young man!

I would like to personally thank Gabriel Adkins and his staff for all that was done to make my grandfather's (James E. McCoy Sr.) and uncle's (Cecil Manley Jr.) celebration of life special for my family.

The love you showed did not go unnoticed. It was a difficult time to lose two family members on the same day, but you showed great resilience while going through your own loss of a loved one.

My family thanks you for not only caring for us after their passing but also being a helping hand as my uncle transitioned. Your acts of kindness and love showed me that you are not in this business for just monetary gain. You truly care about the well-being of the families you serve.

I thank you from the bottom of my heart

To our friend, Gabriel Adkins, and everyone at Adkins Memorial Funeral Home (ADKINS): We thank you all so very much for the excellent care and professionalism you all extended to the Greene/Johnson family at the loss of Davon. Every detail was handled with perfection! Everything was very well coordinated, and we left feeling so glad we chose ADKINS to handle Davon’s passing. Please keep our family in your thoughts and prayers going forward.

I want to personally thank Mr. Gabriel Adkins and his staff, for the amazing Homegoing Service, for my mom, Clara Gibson Bazemore. They put their heart and soul in making sure that everything was done in a professional manner.
The first business meeting with my sister and me, was done in a compassionate, caring and professional manner. He paid attention to every detail, to make sure that everything was clear and done according to our wishes.
Gabriel took the time to call and check on us throughout the week until my mom's final committal service. He also let us know that he was only a phone call away, if we needed him for anything. We felt that he genuinely cared about our needs and concerns.
The Homegoing Service was done to perfection. The backdrop was beautifully done. The setup matched the casket and the outfit of my mom. Gabriel was very observant. He worked quickly when he saw a possibility of a problem. He paid attention to every detail.
His fleet of cars and lineup, looked so impressive as we traveled in an organized and safe manner.
The graveside service was also done professionally. Every thing flowed smoothly. We even had soft music playing, when we arrived. Dinners were also, prepared for everyone in take out containers after the service.
I strongly recommend Gabriel Adkins Memorial Funeral Home for those needing funeral services.
Respectfully Submitted,
Sylvia Johnson

I would like to take this opportunity to personally thank Mr. Adkins and his staff who assisted us during the loss of my father. I had never planned any type of funeral services before and it was hard to do it for my father. I was completely clueless, but Mr. Adkins and Mr. Phillip guided us through each step and was extremely patient. When we arrived at the airport in Norfolk, VA, he sent a limo to pick up me and my family and didn’t charge us anything. He arranged the hotel accommodations for us as well. I would recommend the Adkins Funeral Home staff to any family. You will not be disappointed. He still calls to check on us monthly. Thank you again Mr. Adkins for all you did for my family. You all are the best.

Mr. Gabriel Adkins

I would like to send a special thank you to Adkins Memorial Funeral Home for a great job well done on my brother. You assisted my family in a compassionate and professional manner. You did such a magnificent job on Byron. The facility was beautiful and would fit anyone's needs. The staff was wonderful there to aid with great dignity for the family. Thank you again Adkins Memorial Funeral Home for your professionalism at our time of need. It's time like this, it's hard to know when to say something and when not to. I would definitely recommend Adkins Memorial Funeral Home to any family. I want to say to Adkins Memorial Funeral Home that the Brown family truly appreciated everything from the bottom of our hearts, and that god will continue to bless you and your business.

Let me first say thank you to Adkins Memorial Funeral Home for the magnificent job they did on my brother. Mr. Adkins was so friendly and assisted us every step of the way. My brother died here in Georgia and we wanted to have his homegoing in Elizabeth City, North Carolina and Mr. Adkins and Mr. Leigh helped to ensure it was done so smoothly without any problems. My brother looked so peacefully. The funeral home is beautiful and the chapel is very big. Thank you again Adkins Funeral home for a job well done. You guys made things so much easier for us and we are truly thankful.

Many blessings,
