Funeral Home Reviews
McGregor, Texas
My brother , Robert Stephens died June 30th. He had a graveside service through Cole Funeral Home, in McGregor. The day my sister and I went to plan his funeral we were told we would have to pay in full that day. We paid over $11,000. Then another $11,000 was paid from his estate. My sister and I have been trying since that time to recover our money. We've had lies, promises and a lot of lip service, but no money. I used my credit cars to pay my half, that bill is due in a few days..but still no money!! I'll have to deplete my savings accounts to get it paid on time. I would advise anyone not to die in Mcgregor or go to Waco to find someone who is not so dishonest. My sister was told several times that the money would be delivered to her house, that has never happened. You don't have a negative star rating for this review, it is even less than one star.

I can not express the exceptional, personable, and professional service for my husband's service. First Class 100%+. Due to obstacles in transportation, Director Manuel drove a bereaved wife and family to Pearland from Spring, Tx. to plan his services!! A business is a business, and South Park astounded me, over the top. FIRST CLASS. I don't believe this happens often, my heartfelt thanks. Special thanks to Manuel,Lisa,Antionette,Steve,Bill ad Pricilla. In time of need please experience the peace and comfort only South Park can provide. Mahalo to the staff!

Every story has two sides. North may have theirs, but here is our family's. North's Funeral Home is NOT concerned with your family during your time of grief. Our loved one, Oscar Villalobos, passed away this past week. He prearranged for his final moments with North's. Unfortunately, his final arrangements and family were handled with less respect than I'm sure he felt would happen. Apparently, every step of funeral arrangements must be made with North's for they will not guide nor assist the family unless it is paid for. The family's understanding of prearrangement did not meet the North's understanding. Please verify if all issues have been addressed: transportation of body, embalming, visitations, memorial service and certainly make sure that all these occur within their open hours otherwise it might get in the way of their evening plans. Additionally, get everything in writing and always know who with you are talking. We called and spoke with Sandy North stating we were coming in from out of town and we had flowers being sent for Oscar. She told husband they would hold them. However; we found a note on their doors DO NOT leave anything for Oscar Villalobos. Family has not made arrangements. Then, when we asked about the flowers, Ms. North told my husband they never delivered. In fact, the florist was called and told to pick them up. For a moment, let's forget the apparent lying and lack of respect. Let's say, we the family, did not make arrangements. A good business designed around service ( according to their sign, serving people for 100 years), you would think that a conversation would happen with the family to identify any shortcomings in arrangements. That they would insure all aspects were covered and a clear understanding of arrangements were made for both parties. Instead, we were told the body was in too bad of condition, it would take too long to make him look right and we wouldn't be able to see him until the next day before cremation. They did nothing to ease the family's pain and give them one last opportunity to say goodbye to a father, a grandfather, a brother...a good man. By the way, the cosmetic work they did was good. Oscar looked very natural, very much at peace. Pretty good for a body that was in "pretty bad condition". So, that is our side of this story. But, don't take our word for the service...ask anyone in Abilene. Ask the State School what their thoughts are of North's Funeral Home.
