This is for my Aunt Sis who was not just a Aunt to me but like a mother too. Aunt Sis never complained but she sure would keep you in line. I will never forget the best times of my life when I was suppose to be coming to Aunt Sis for the summer and it turned out to be the best times of my life. Aunt Sis would have to sendthe forces out to find me and my cousin Bill because I didn't want to come home. It was like yesterday. I can still smell the breakfast she would cook fore me and the fried chicken in the evenings she was the best Aunt anyone could ask for. Aunt Sis I am going to miss talking to you and all the good times I had with you. You always stuck up for me and I will love you forever in my heart. God Bless you and keep you safe and warm until we all meet again. I Love You from the bottom of my heart!

No attention to detail. Facility is old and worn. Caring and compassion lacking.

Dealing with CR and his crew is like dealing with a bunch of poorly trained monkeys.
My father died very suddenly, without any true preparation in funerary matters.
So you'd think that Piatt&Barnhill would take the opportunity to do the best job they could. They didn't.
Created by CR and his terrible toupee our questions were greeted by a series of bumbling "uhs" and "I don't know". If my father's body wasn't already in transit I would have walked out then and know now what I do, I should have.
But that was only the beginning. After countless clerical errors on the death certificates, they refused to mail them to us. Demanding that we stop in and pick them up.
For being in the business of helping alleviate stress and work during a time of grief theses people, they fail immensely.

Yesterday, 01/16/13 I went to the funeral of a good friend. By the end of the funeral I felt really sorry for the family. there seemed to be no sympathy or empathy by the ones who were conducting the service it was quite cold and strictly buisness like. My wife was to sing for the funeral and they lost her accompanyment CD. I will never even suggest that anyone use this funeral home. the only reason I even gave them a one rating is that they did at least get my friend buried.

I am from Florida and my mother passed away in Schenectady, New York. Being from out of state, I was very concerned about who would take care of my mother's remains. I had very little time because I didn't want her in the morgue. I searched and visited many funeral homes in the area and couldn't find what I was looking for, a God based place. I felt that all that I visited were just a business and wasn't sure that my mother would be treated with the respect that she deserved. Finally, God sent me to De Legge Funeral Home. When I rang the door bell a nun answered the door, which I was later told was not the norm. With a warm touch, she held my hand and asked me to come in. I felt that my prayers were answered. Then I met with Mark Laszczynski, who has such a gentle way and understanding of the grief process for the loved ones left behind. He assisted me with the financial aspects and made it very easy. After talking to him about how I would like things done, he immediately left to pick up my mother so that she wasn't left any longer at the hospital. They placed her under a large cross, at the feet of Jesus, with her head resting on a silk pillow. There was to be no viewing and her remains were to be cremated. This is just the way that they treat loved ones. I am so happy and relieved that I found them. They are very respectful and professional. I felt at peace and I'm sure that my mother did too.
