The family of Ms. Kim called, and were so pleased at how caring you and your staff were when they came to transport Ms. Kim to Brazier-Watson funeral home. Just want to "Thank you" for being so kind to my families! I really appreciate all that you do to represent me!

As a Hospice nurse I have been working closely with David and his staff at 1st Call Transport for about 5 years. It is a positive experience to see these guys work. They go above and beyond to make sure that family is confident that their loved ones will be taking care of with respect and dignity . David and his staff take time to explain what is to be expected and allow families to say their goodbyes. Compassion and care for a fellow human being and the end of their journey is provided to its "BEST". Further more they honor our Veterans by tenderly covering them with the Old Glory blanket. 1st Call Transport should be proud of the work they do every day. I would recommend their service anytime.

I have known David Whiddon with 1st Call Transport Services for nearly 9 years. During that time, I have found him to be professional, reliable and easy to communicate in every instance. Families that are served through my funeral homes are well pleased with the care their loved one receives when David's services are rendered. He is conscious of completion of paperwork, service excellence to families and has an ease with assisting my employees. I am confident in referring him to any funeral home who would benefit from this business relationship.

My name is Cory Descant. I am the acting manager at Escude’ Funeral Home located in Mansura which is located in Avoyelles Parish. r sometime run into the problems of a late night call or an inconveniently timed call to pick up someone’s loved one out of my normal call radius. Usually these calls come from the Baton Rouge or New Orleans area. This became a problem for my staff and myself, but luckily I found Mr. David Whiddon. He has never let me down when I have called him. Any time of the day or night, I have called him personally and he was eager to help us out in our need. A few times he has even gone above and beyond and did a removal out his immediate area. He and his staff are very well trusted, caring, and compassionate. They are all highly recommend in my book.
