Uniontown, Pennsylvania
I have been to several viewings at this FH. I have been horrified at how bad the deceased looked. Whoever is preparing these bodies needs more experience/education. I was there this week for a viewing and the mother of the deceased was horrified by the appearance of her son. You are devasting families and friends by the bad prepartion of the bodies. Please do something about this. It is very sad,

Driving thru your town on Monday nite I saw your sign and wondered if my Grandfather Leo Martin Finnegan Sr who was a funeral director in Minot North Dakota in the 1920s to the late 1940s is possibily related to the person behind the Finnegan name. My Grandfather was from Minnesota and was traveling to I believe Cutbank to work but got off the train in Minot saw my Grandmother and never left. My Mother is 89 and when I told her she wanted me to check as she is the last member of her family.You can contact me by email @ duddlebug322@msn.com if this is a possability. Thank you for your time. Sincerely, Judy Steinhadt daughter of Margaret Ellen Finnegan Penne

I cannot recommend this funeral home at all. The older gentleman who runs it has zero compassion. He talked about how he didn't like the job, couldn't wait to retire, showed off his new watch. The thing that really still bothers me is at the cemetery he was standing behind the navy guard handing me a flag with paperwork in hand, I don't remember the navy mans speech as I was being distracted by this sims guy leaning over his shoulder waiting for him to get done. The minute the guard handed me the flag and left there was this man handing me a flag holder and thanking me for my business. My daughter had broken down on my shoulder when the flag was presented, and I couldn't even comfort her because this guy was in such a rush to get out of there, I had to u hug my daughter to accept the paper work. Everyone noticed but because of the situation didn't intercede. It was appealing, and that's the memory Of my husbands service I'm stuck with. I had to leave the room several times during the planning stage because of his insensitivity, and let my sister speak for me. I looked a headstones there but was so mad at this man I decided to choose one later, and I'm glad I did. I went to wire grass memorial for the headstone and was quoted a price two and a half times cheaper and nicer then the one sims quoted me. I highly recommend speaking to wiregrass memorial before going to sims. They don't do the service but can tell you who is good or not.

Although my mother pre-planned her funeral, there were still a few decisions to be made. I'm pleased to say that Tim McLoone of Huff and Lakjer immediately put me and my husband at ease, and that everything concerning the memorial went just as smoothly as we hoped. I feel very confident in recommending Huff and Lakjer to anyone in need of such services.
