What Others Say
“On November 30, 2016 Cunningham Turch Funeral Home held my fathers service. My father Paul Hilton Woods was a Vietnam Veteran who passed away on 10/24/16 at the VA Medical Center in Washington, DC from Colon Cancer (Agent Orange). His wish was to be buried at the National Arlington Cemetery. He also wished every Veteran with Services Dogs Attended his service and he asked that he have “Doo-Wop” music playing at his service. Cunningham Turch made all this happen for my father. They went above and beyond to ensure that our family and my father be honored and have the best send off to National Arlington Cemetery. It was impeccable. My father was taken to Arlington Cemetery in a Harley Hearse while 20 officers in Uniform on Motorcycles provided services. Michael Turch himself lead the procession. The Funeral Service welcomed Service Dogs and also ensured we were able to have ample time with loved ones. If you are a loved one of a Veteran and you are looking to hold a service in proximity to the Arlington Cemetery, you need to house your families body and/or remains onsite for a duration due to the time wait..they offer low fees for this service and they are only 15 minutes from Interment. I recommend this Funeral Home to anyone and I will be sure to go back for my remaining family and myself. As my father would say…SEMPER FI!”
