Horrible, devastating experience. Wish they had negative marks for funeral directors.

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.

I'm so glad that I made the decision of having Anna Bongiovi help us plan and go through the funeral arrangements for my mother. The courtesy, respect and professionalism showed were outstanding to say the least. Although Anna was absent her reflection was on Eve, whom I couldn’t thank enough for making us feel as if my mom were her own. Wayne thank you for greeting our friends and families plus attending to all our needs. From the moment this process started until the end the utmost respect, reverence and care was all that was shown from this funeral home staff. Anthony thank you for taking my mom to her final resting place with such class. Thank you will never be enough to say how appreciative we are and always will be
