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!
Mr. Adkins and his staff did an amazing job during the transition of my dad and my brother. I cannot thank you and your staff enough for everything they did to support my family,and to make our burdens a little easier to bare. Continue to allow God to use you and your staff to be a blessing to so many. Thank you so very much, Mr. and Mrs. George L. Powell
You are the best. The Harvey family would like to thank you for your professionalism, outstanding service and kind spirit during our time of bereavement for our mother Gracie Harvey! Many blessings to you in 2021.
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.

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.
I want to send a huge thank you to the Adkins Family for taking care of my family in our time of need. Thank you for treating us with class and great honor. Thank you for providing professional mannerisms during this grieving time for us.

I thought long and hard about this and ask god to give me the correct words to say. When my daughter passed my mind was at its worst but when you find or should i say GOD brings a person like Adkins memorial to you i was so grateful. Everything he and his staff did was so amazing he took care of my daughter like she was his daughter . I want to say thank each and everyone of you !
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

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.
