Tacky and tasteless. Asked for payment up front while were 150 miles out by car (we didn't know this when we started out on our trip) At graveside in front of priest even, claimed that casket was cheaper veneer version than used for another family member although the funeral home that embalmed the deceased cited model numbers were exact and the price had not changed in 9 years (that means Henney overcharged us 9 years ago). Would NEVER recommend this group.

The NEW MANAGEMENT at Davis and Weaver Funeral home are a bunch of petty jerks. They care more about saving a couple dollars than they do the community. This place is not owned by the same folks and you can defiantly tell. It use to be a wonderful place but not anymore. Two thumbs way down!!!!

I am writing on behalf of the family of deceased, Larry S Edwards.
I came to Chicago, from Ohio, to attend the funeral of Larry Edwards. I accompanied my family to your facility to help with the arrangements for Larry's funeral, on several occasions.
I just wanted to tell you how impressed we were with the professionalism of your entire staff. With so much involved with the loss of a loved one and then having to plan a funeral, it was so comforting to walk into your offices and leave feeling as if the funeral was one less thing we had to stress about. We felt that Gatlings would take care of not only our loved one, but our family as well. The staff at Gatlings did exactly that.
Your drivers were always on time and courteous. Your entire staff were extremely well dressed. Your facility was immaculate and all of your workers were very well organized. They were also very patient, especially at the end of the funeral when everyone was saying their goodbyes to loved ones, your driver said for us to take as long as we needed. Your drivers assisted everyone in and out of the cars, they drove as if they were carrying precious cargo. We never felt rushed or as though we were an inconvenience in any way.
Your office staff were extremely patient with my family members. We made several changes to the obituary after the draft had been printed. Your staff continually told us, 'We are here to do whatever you need, we'll take care of you.'
Our loved one, Larry Edwards, had been very sick for a very long time. When we viewed the body, everyone kept saying how peaceful he looked and what a wonderful job Gatlings had done.
We cannot thank you enough for taking care of our loved one and our family.
By the time our experience with Gatlings came to an end, we felt as though we had gained a new family.
Please share this letter with your employees. I want them to know how very much they are appreciated.
The family of Larry S. Edwards

To Duane Perkins Family, I am so sorry for your loss but I know he had a wonderful life on Sycamore Drive. My dad Trevor Baugh thought a lot of your mother & dad. I tried to knock on the door on Sycamore but noone answered. I have lost my dad Trevor, Maxine, Trevor Jr and Vanessa now. I would love to hear from one on you kids if you have time. Steve, how are you? Long time no see. I hope you get this message. Thinking of you all, fondly, Rhoda
