My family had a terrible experience at the J Allen Hooper Funeral Home. Calls and e-mails were rarely returned, even to answer the most simple questions. The person helping us actually complained to us that he was overworked. My grandmother looked terrible at the viewing and the makeup was literally cracking off of her hands. I know it was not "her" but we ended up deciding to close the casket because they did such a terrible job. I would avoid this one at all costs.

Dear Family Members:
This is a note from Bernetta Ramsey. She is the granddaughter of Cora Vee Robinson. Cora was the daughter of Bertram Thomas Blakey Sr's half-brother(Aaron Herron(Herring)).
She explains what happened when they used Spriggs & Watson Funeral Home to bury her grandmother last Fall.
We are both asking the Pittsburgh Blakey Family and friends to take this into consideration when having to choose a Funeral Home to bury a loved one.
"My grandma Cora Robinson died on September 13,2012 we had went to Spriggs and Watson for them to do the services Mr. Anderson is the person that we dealt with he owed us a refund that we didn't get November we talked to him on several different times was told we would get the refund. So our next step was to send a certified letter which he didn't accept so had to paid extra money for a constable to serve him. We had to take him to Magistrate January 24,2013 which he didn't even show up the Judge ruled in our favor. Why he felt that he should keep more than he was to get I don't know showed us he's a shaddy man"

My name is Barbara Beaulier, My Mother Eliza Lint past away Jan of this year, I did not attend , But did in May of this year when She was laid to rest at Coboro Rd. In Stetson. I made my Mother Eliza a very large spray of flowers to go on her Casket, They were there in Jan at Crosby's. So When Moma was buried in May I thought the Spray would come with her to the grave. I ask my sister where is Moma's flowers, Brenda said I don't know. I then ask Mike Crosby where is my Mother's spray. He was not sure at first what I was asking, He then said oh yes, I will go now & Get them, I said don't worry now. You can bring it back before the week is out, I was down to Stetson this past week, And guess what. That's right my Mother's very large Red & White roses & palm with wisterias were not there. ?????. Mr. Crosby I'm asking that you deliver my Mother Eliza Lint's Flowers, To the Coboro Rd. Stetson. Thanks >>> Barbara Beaulier. Portage , Maine
