Funeral Home Reviews

I recently can to knowledge of your funeral home through the media and the story regarding grieving parents attempted theft of their deceased son's ashes. I recently lost my infant son. I am disgusted with your funeral home. The funeral home that handled our son's services and cremation did not charge us a dime. They refused to accept any type of payment. Our of respect for us and what they recognized as such a significant loss they were willing to take the financial loss. Mesa Funeral Home in Grand Junction Colorado. You should take a lesson from them!!! It was an amazing gift to us to comfort us. Mr. Edgar Rodriguez to you personally, to say in your interview that you hope the family is able to find closure in their theft and not being able to get the sons ashes out of the country is terrible. That was a very mean and hurtful thing to say. How dare you use manipulation of grieve of these people's son to support your cause. And really you think you are a compassionate man to offer to reduce the fee. You should have never mentioned charging them in the first place!!!! I also understand how funeral homes work. They are a business and therefore need to make a profit. I have immediate family members who own and operate a funeral home. You sir only care about profit in the business. Your business clearly has no compassion for it's customers. This would be the last place on earth I would allow my loved ones to be handled.

Very disappointing service! Paul Shaker turned out to be a very arrogant and unprofessional funeral director, and he over charged us the amount originally agreed upon. During the funeral service, only four ushers from their funeral home came and could barely hold up the casket, leaving many of our family members gasping and hoping our (petite sized) loved one would not be dropped! If you are researching a professional funeral home, I would look elsewhere!

Henry L. Fuqua Funeral Service has changed. The staff is not as warm as it was at onetime. What Happened? Also, there is no longer any personalization there. They use to pride temselves on the way the bodies look, but the bodies look terrible. Bring back Henry Fuqua and Joann Wiggin.

This was the first funeral home I had been to where I felt the funeral director was only interested in money. Small and not enough seats for everyone. He told me if I was going to stay that I needed to find a seat and sit. I informed him that there were not enough seats. He said there are 2. There were 20 of us standing. He tried to make the daughter of the deceased sit in the back. His "bed side manner" was terrible. He was rude and disrespectful. Telling everyone they needed to get to their cars after the service when they were paying their last respects. There were absolutely no one who lined up cars or even police to direct traffic going to the cemetary. He would speed up to 65 mph and many were left behind. They started the tent before everyone was there or even out of the cars. If you want a funeral home who appears to care for you, I do not recommend this Gerts Funeral Home in Brook, Indiana.

My parents passed away recently. We used stevens funeral home both times. For my fathers memorial they rushed us and cut the memorial short by 35 minutes. People showed up after we were rushed out of there... They didnt allow people to get up and speak about my father because they were in such a hurry for us to leave early. We paid ahead of time for burial of the urns... After 3 months there is still no name on the burial site, even though plaques were paid for ahead of time.... Wish we would have gone elsewhere! Very unhappy! Also the building is very small and not well set up to have a funeral.
