Memorial Candle Tribute From
Dear Kathryn, Carol, Allen, Bonnie, Andi and Scott, How shocking it was to learn of your loss. There is no way to understand the sorrow you must feel now. As everyone has said, Chris was one of a kind. His love for God, family, work, friends and those less fortunate touched everyone who knew him. He welcomed me to Elsberry as an 11-year-old and kept me attending the United Methodist Church. He let me drive his purple VW bug when I was 13, and I couldn't get the darn thing into reverse (sorry, Kathryn!) I never drove illegally again. When trouble in Ferguson began 11 days ago, and the Highway Patrol was brought in to help calm the city, the first person I thought of was Chris. He had a gift for soothing others, and I hope the people he taught carried his example with them. We will miss him terribly.

Q: How do I correct my spelling error after purchasing a candle?
A: Please contact the funeral home to make the correction for you.
Q: Why can't I see several words in my memorial candle message?

A: Please make sure that all information you enter is exactly the same information associated with your credit card account. The name, address and phone number must be the same as what's on record with your credit card company.

A: FrontRunner Professional does not gather or store any credit card information. The online page where you enter your personal information is located on a secure site managed by Internet Secure, a Verisign registered company. It has the highest standards of security and privacy on the internet. All of the information gathered is highly encrypted and is not stored, sold or divulged in any way other than to approve the transaction with your credit card company.
Q: Why does my credit card continue to be declined?
A: There are many reasons why a credit card transaction may not be approved. The most common reasons are: incorrect card number; incorrect password; incorrect expiry date, the address does not match credit card statements; the card is blocked for e-commerce use: and the cardholder has exceeded or is close to the credit card limit. Please contact your credit card company for more information.
Q: How do I go back to add a condolence message?
A: If you have not cleared your computer's cache or disabled the cookies, you should be able to open up the condolences page to make any changes. If you do not see this option, please contact the funeral home to help make the change.
Q: Am I only able to make one purchase per day with my credit card?
A: You are able to make five transactions on the same card in a 24-hour period.
Q: Is the family notified about all purchased memorials?
A: The funeral home determines with the family the preferred method (if any) of notifications. Families are able to login to the Book of Memories where they can see all updates. There is also an option to be notified via email.
Q: Are there hidden fees? I received an email that confirmed the price of a memorial candle was $29.95 but my credit card statement showed the cost was $30.19.
A: No, there are no hidden fees. FrontRunner Professional only receives $29.95 for the candle purchase. Any additional fees are generated by credit card companies or financial institutions.
Q: Why was my credit card charged multiple times but the payment receipt shows declined transactions?
A: Internet Secure is attempting to approve your purchase but your credit card company is declining the transaction. This is usually caused by incorrect information submitted during the purchasing process. Please ensure that your address information is exactly the same as what appears on your statement. Your credit card account will display a credit of any failed transactions within a couple of business days.
