We can not say enough about the staff of Richmond-August funeral home. We are new to the Coast and have lost several family members since being here. Each time Richmond-August handled the arrangement. Each time this staff has shined. Lasha August, is top of the line. Ms. August is one in a million. Having had to plan many of my families funerals in the past at other funeral homes, I have never encountered any Director like her. My prayers go to her and her family for the spirit of God they display. God Bless you Lasha.

Words are not substantial enough to represent the appreciation that our family has for the Richmond August family and staff. My Father was buried in the Biloxi National Cemetary and had a viewing at the Richmond August Funeral Home as well as a repast. Lasha August is the most amazing funeral director, she went above and beyond to ensure that my Dad's services were dignified and distinguished. My Father is a retired Chicago policeman and Lasha was diligent about contacting the Biloxi PD asking if they could provide any honors to my Dad at the burial. Her request was successful and the awesome Biloxi Police Department provided a police escort for the processional and served as pallbearers. Lasha also honored my Dad and comforted the family with a beautiful song at the burial. The repast was also beautiful and the catered food was delicious. We are eternally grateful!

Dear Richmond August Family, I know that this is a service that you provide, but I wanted to take a moment to thank you all for all of your kindness, support and heartfelt professionalism. This has been an obviously long and stressful week, and your assistance has helped me/us through it all. I want you to know that all your love and extra courtesies from the start of this process (i.e. the paperwork) to the gentle care of my dad, to the hugs and reminders that he is in God’s hands, to the beautiful extra’s and the lovely singing. It all simply makes my heart overflow with love and admiration for you all. I will be keeping each and every one of you in my prayers tonight. With my Highest Regards, Katherine H.

Dear Lasha, My family and I are deeply grateful for your kindness and compassion during this very difficult time. Thank you so much to Bishop Rick, especially to you and your staff for your professionalism and attention to details. It was a wonderful service. The way he would have been very pleased. The memory “throw blanket” is very special. You helped lighten the heavy load of dealing with his loss. Thank you very much and may God bless you with good health and prosperity. Sincerely, Clara C.

Richmond-August Funeral Home: Our family was humbled by your execution of the business matters to the home going of our wife and mother. You stood ready at a moment’s notice to help us make decisions and choices in a seamless fashion. The food, calls, visits and extra pleasantries were received by overwhelmed hearts. Our family and friends are still commenting about how intentional you were to the details of the day. Those that watched via the internet felt right there with us. We are slowing moving toward the acceptance phase of our grief process having benefitted from your efficiency, proficiency and genuine concern. Our loved one is now in her HEAVENLY HOME from the preparation of the expert hands of the professionals at Richmond-August. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Humbly, The Reed Family

To Whom It May Concern: I am writing this letter to express my deepest appreciation for the funeral services my Brother received from Richmond-August Funeral Home when he passed away recently. This funeral home achieved the Spirit of Excellence and Professionalism it strives for, the way my brother’s affairs were handled. I am so pleased! From the moment my sisters and I first met with the Funeral Director, Lasha August, I felt at ease and we were in very good hands. During our initial meeting, she gave us so much information to guide us through the whole ordeal. All of the handouts we got are well organized and packaged with their business logo, from the initial meeting to the end. These handouts made such emotional moments of my brother’s passing manageable; giving me clear directions and instructions to follow, including contacts and phone numbers. Lasha led me through the whole process to the end when my Brother was put to rest. She stayed in touch with me often to check how the family was doing. She was so accessible; giving good advice for me to follow. All these services were received on an affordable budget for us. We conducted interviews with other funeral homes and chose Richmond-August Funeral Home over the rest. We considered Richmond-August because they were highly recommended by other family members. They had recently been through a similar ordeal too. Richmond-August, you set the bar for funeral services here on the Coast. This letter is my sincere way to say Thank You! Sincerely, Bernard Howard A Very Satisfied Customer
