I would like to share my story with any one that is going to consider James Evans Funeral Home To complete there Family's Last wishes. Me and my family went to the Evans Funeral Home Aug 19 2011 When I lost my mother . These people were Very Kind Very Respectful and Very Considerate to my family . They went above and beyond For my family . They are Very understanding of people finances and Did there very best to help my family . And so that is why my family went back to them sadly again this year When my father past away . Witch was even harder to pay for because my father didn't believe in paying for his death before hand .. yea I no some people would think that is dumb well yes and no .. So me being the youngest of my dads five children . It was left to me to pay because The Evans Funeral Home new I was the only one that could pay for my father.. So once again these wonderful people help my family every way they could .. And for that I got to lay my father to rest with my mother were he wanted to be.. So I would love to tell every one this is the best place you could go to take care of your family last wishes .. Because these people will do a 100% job For you .. So I would like to say again to The Evans Funeral Home thank you again from the bottom of my heart .. Melissa Butler & Butler Family - (Melissa Butler)
Not very Happy with Raymond Funeral Home. Was subcontracted to do Date Cuttings for him . He still owes our Company $110.00 He will not return our phone calls, ignores us. You took the money for these date cuts and now cant pay us for the work we did. Shame on you. It's really sad that you up charge these grieving people for date cuts & then cant pay people for real work they do. You could at least return phone calls.... & state why you cant pay. I hope many people read this review and Don't Use Your Services. Beware ........... - (Deb Farr)
Used this funeral home, services were exceptional. Will always use them. They were compassionate and very professional.
Thanks. Our family is doing good because of your prayers and assistance. - (Brenda Smith)
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!!!! - (Josh H)
I was more than pleased with the personal attention our family was given. This country funeral home was amazing in the service they provided for my mother. Yes, I would recommend them to anyone wanting qualify service for a reasonable price. Thank you staff at the Mcintyre funeral home. - (Rich W.)
Steer clear of Clines Mortuary!
Someone very close to me recently passed away. Cookie Cline was hired to do the funeral and make the arrangements, typical funeral director stuff. I should mention that my family is far from 'well-off', so we put together a pretty modest funeral and bought the casket elsewhere. We were charged nearly $9k for his services, which had to be paid in full before anything happened, forcing us to take out a loan until the insurance arrives. This was non negotiable, and he already had our loved one.
Then the night of the wake... It was held in Victoria, where the paneling on the walls is still from the 70's, end tables and desks were all water stained with the finish coming off, and the mens room was out of order. I along with numerous people heard Cookie cussing freely, being extremely condescending when asked questions, also being exceptionally rude to mothers with fussy babies or children (almost yelling), and telling jokes about his dick and circumcision. On top of all this, he began taking down flowers at 8:30 and rudely forced us to leave the funeral home at 8:37pm. ("Time to go to your cars guys. Time to go home.") That doesn't seem like a big deal until you think about the few *minutes* you have left to see someone you cared about forever.
The day of the funeral, he knowingly allowed someone to 'sneak' something into the casket without the spouses consent, which wasn't realized until later in the day after it was all said and done. Immediately after finishing services at the cemetery (which was unmowed with grass 8" tall, pallbearers nearly tripped multiple times), Cookie instructed us all to leave, citing the luncheon as his reason. He literally told someone to grab the sobbing spouses wheelchair and take her to the car because people are waiting on her.
Overall, my family paid Cookie Cline almost $9k (services only, casket not included) for an outdated, unmaintained facility where he was extremely rude and disrespectful while putting forth an unacceptably minimal amount of work or care.
All this being said, I beg you to reconsider choosing Clines Mortuary should you find yourself in a position that requires the type of services he offers... This is far from the mortuary Harold Cline operated. For the sake and dignity of your loved one, find a different funeral director. Please share this so others know what they might expect when hiring Cookie Cline. - (Disgusted Son)
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. - (Catherine Slaughter)
As there is no compition for business in the surrounding communities this funeral home did not treat my family with "respect, dignity, and understanding" (as on Ertels funeral chapel website). Four Corners Funeral Chapel is also owned by the same owners of Ertels. Making our experience difficult. Not only did we receive misinformed information, but when trying to straighten it out, hung up on! - (Anonymous)
they refused to do the wishes of mr Wilkinson on his death,they let a distant relative threaten them as the service was to be with his special ,friends and a few neighbors notified. also they lied to us about receving a death certificate and the cremation order from dane co reg of deeds as to when they were sent. I and my family will take every opportunity to tell what the director did and obviously will not recommend them for a family or non family member in the futual 10 people will repeat this experience to any one they talk to and on;y one may pass on a good remark I do not recommend this outfit for any service - (neumaier family/wilkinson funeral/cremation)
The owner tried to commit insurance fraud on a life insurance policy and has been reported to the proper governing board. He lied, harassed and made very inappropriate remarks to me and other family members. He is a disgrace to this industry and the community of Eufaula. Please take your business elsewhere! - (Cox)
