Our Community Voted Us the Best!
  • Hawthorn’s is The Panola Watchman Reader’s Choice “Best of Panola County” Funeral Home. We were nominated and voted best by various businesses, people, and organizations, and to them we say a hearty, “Thank you!”


  • Carlton, The 21st Annual Service of Remembrance at Hawthorn's was all and more than we have come to expect. The decor, music, message, food - - were top-of-the-line. The decor always awes me - the boughs with the hanging fruit, the trees - everything! The choir from First Baptist Church and their appropriate selections were so well done. Bro. Pete Williams' timely message reminded us we are so blessed to still have him. The delicious refreshments and beverage and fellowship were a fitting closure to an evening of REMEMBRANCE. We thank you and Karen.

  • Thank you so very much for the Gideon Bible, and the BBQ meat tray provided for the family of Fannie Lou Waldrop. Your prayers and thoughts are greatly appreciated in the days ahead for the many for the many details to cover. Thank you for your support and guidance through the days after Mom's home-going and the day of her celebration of life. The great detail provided took such a burden from us. Best regards.

  • Carlton, Thanks for asking us to be a part of the Service of Remembrance. It was a pleasure. I'm ashamed to say it was my first to attend. Years ago, my family had some hard Christmases. This kind of service would have been great for us at the time. Thanks for all you do for our community. Hawthorn Funeral Home has a greater legacy than it used to because of YOU.
