To David and the whole Whitley’s staff, thank you so much for being so kind through this process. Although we were heartbroken we couldn’t have done this process without each you! We cannot thank you all enough for everything!
My mother, Geraldine H. Fitzpatrick was a unique individual, so vibrant and full of life. In her 90's, she had been sick for awhile. I was concerned about her looking tired, frail and in pain. I didn't want her loved ones to have that be their last memory of her.
I didn't need to worry. She looked amazing in her red beaded flapper dress, matching earrings and ring. Hair and make-up done and nails perfect. Her favorite music was playing, just as she had requested.
The personal attention and professional knowledge we received at Whitley's made our complicated situation manageable. Thank you so much for listening and honoring our requests. With your help, she went out in high style. Lauri Flaquer
To David Whitley and the Whitley’s staff, your professionalism, empathy and kindness did not go unnoticed. You all made every logistical aspect of the visitation, funeral, and graveside service easy so that we could focus on cherishing time with our family. Each event was performed according to our exact specifications, with helpful input and insight all along the way. We are enormously grateful for the thoughtful and respectful staff, gentle interactions, and simplicity of doing business. We cannot thank you all enough for all that you have done for us.
RIP... Ms. McDanielsI just want to say Job Well Done... Thank you for keeping us focus at school, and trying to keep my brothers on the right path.

The U.S. Federal Trade Commission issued a news release in June regarding a scheme involving individuals posing as Funeral Directors who are calling families as a "funeral home representative" demanding additional payments for funeral goods and services. These imposters then threaten to cancel planned funeral services for these families unless payment is received immediately through a wire transfer, credit card, gift card or cryptocurrency. The Board has received reports from North Carolina licensees affirming that families in Wake and surrounding counties have received these calls. Some funeral homes have inserted a Fraud Alert banner on their websites to alert consumers of these illegal activities. Consumers should end such a call if it appears suspicious or a scam. The FTC recommends the following preventive measures for consumers:
Resist the pressure to act immediately. Funeral homes and their licensees do not pressure consumers to pay or provide personal information over the telephone.
Contact the funeral home directly. If you have a legitimate telephone number for the funeral home, call that number. Do not use any telephone number that the imposter may provide. If you trust contact information for a particular funeral home with a website on the Internet, you can use that number. You will likely find a legitimate telephone number on the General Price List that the funeral home provided you.
Know how scammers tell you to pay. Consumers should avoid payment of any kind in response to insistent demands for money which are accompanied by threats to cancel a funeral service if payment is not made immediately.Consumers should never send payment in response to a request by telephone.
