Funeral Home Reviews
New Britain, Connecticut
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.

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.

I am writing on behalf of the family of deceased, Larry S Edwards. I came to Chicago, from Ohio, to attend the funeral of Larry Edwards. I accompanied my family to your facility to help with the arrangements for Larry's funeral, on several occasions. I just wanted to tell you how impressed we were with the professionalism of your entire staff. With so much involved with the loss of a loved one and then having to plan a funeral, it was so comforting to walk into your offices and leave feeling as if the funeral was one less thing we had to stress about. We felt that Gatlings would take care of not only our loved one, but our family as well. The staff at Gatlings did exactly that. Your drivers were always on time and courteous. Your entire staff were extremely well dressed. Your facility was immaculate and all of your workers were very well organized. They were also very patient, especially at the end of the funeral when everyone was saying their goodbyes to loved ones, your driver said for us to take as long as we needed. Your drivers assisted everyone in and out of the cars, they drove as if they were carrying precious cargo. We never felt rushed or as though we were an inconvenience in any way. Your office staff were extremely patient with my family members. We made several changes to the obituary after the draft had been printed. Your staff continually told us, 'We are here to do whatever you need, we'll take care of you.' Our loved one, Larry Edwards, had been very sick for a very long time. When we viewed the body, everyone kept saying how peaceful he looked and what a wonderful job Gatlings had done. We cannot thank you enough for taking care of our loved one and our family. By the time our experience with Gatlings came to an end, we felt as though we had gained a new family. Please share this letter with your employees. I want them to know how very much they are appreciated. The family of Larry S. Edwards
