They did not provide the service they should have. I had a write obit and get death certificate signed. When I confronted them about the service I was told to take my father somewhere else. This was two days before the service. Obit didn't get in paper until the day before and many people didn't know about Dad's death until after the service. Nobody should be treated the way I was treated. So beware if you take your loved ones here because you'll probably get less than you bargained for.

Just used the services of Woods-Rettig Funeral Home and was very pleased. Durning the planning stages we never felt pressure to "buy up" for items. They covered the details in a thorough, professional and caring manner. My mother looked beautiful, they did an amazing job. The entire experience during a difficult time was outstanding and our family would recommend Woods-Rettig Funeral Home to anyone in need.
