We genuinely care

We genuinely care

My name is Tholley Taylor and my wife, Sarah and I founded Lifesong coincidently on my birthday, April 3rd, 2015. I grew up in Tallahassee but began my career after high school at the age of 18 at a funeral home in Carrollton, KY where I was born. It was nice meeting folks who knew my family in Carrollton but I wanted to connect more deeply with families and friends I grew up with in Tallahassee and decided to move back home after college in 2003. I interviewed with two funeral homes in Tallahassee and was offered a position with both. I decided on Bevis Funeral Home because it was a family owned firm that aligned with my beliefs regarding the principals and relationship between the funeral home and families it served. Shortly after I began working as a licensed funeral director at Bevis Funeral Home, I met my wife, Sarah who was also working there part-time for her Dad while she was finishing her degree at FSU. Sarah and I continued our careers at Bevis Funeral Home for 12 years; I as a licensed funeral director and she as a preplanning specialist. We noticed the needs of our families were moving away from traditional type funerals and towards cremation focused celebrations. But we also noticed a void in our community of cremation focused funeral homes who carried the same values and compassion that traditional firms possessed.  There needed to be a family owned, cremation focused funeral home who could also compassionately serve families who chose to have a burial. We founded Lifesong to serve our friends and neighbors with our whole hearts. We do our best to keep our overhead low in order to keep our prices reasonable. We genuinely care for our families and hope that in your time of need you'll trust us to care for your loved one. Nothing humbles us more than caring for a friend in need or making a new one. We welcome you to reach out to us anytime you have a question or concern.
