I attended an open casket viewing for a very close grandmother of mine at molthen bell funeral home. I and several very close relatives all agreed that the person in the casket did not even resemble her mother at all and to this day this daughter still does not feel she has closure. My understanding was that the funeral home had an intern that was doing the body preparation. I myself to this day say that the person in the casket the day of the funeral was not my grandmother. No resemblance whatsoever to any of the pictures posted. I do not recommend this funeral home to anyone.

My family and I just want to say thank you again for your compassion during this difficult time in our lives. As an African American family we were very happy with the professionalism and caring attitude that was showed to us by Piece of Mind Funeral & Cremation Services. The pricing was affordable and well within budget. My sister looked so peaceful and she did not have excessive makeup on. By far they are the best in the Milwaukee, WI area. Hands down better than Golden Gate Funeral Home, Leon Williamson Funeral Home and any other funeral home service facility!!! Thank you again for all of your guidance with the final arrangements. Just very pleased with how everything came together. -Gloria & Family - (Gloria Johnson)
The Spronz family thanks you from the bottom of our hearts. During a difficult time the Harris family, especially Rick Jr., were absolutely wonderful, professional, compassionate, kind and considerate. We experienced some difficulties with the hospital, and I can't say enough about Rick for stepping up, taking charge, getting answers and helping us through the process. There is no place I would rather pay respects to our dear angel Emily Isabella more, than at Harris Funeral Home. When the time comes all our family will work with Harris and we recommend them above all others to everyone needing funeral arrangements. - (Michael Spronz)
Callous and unprofessional. They made a difficult time that much harder by their lack of helpfulness, lack of compassion and lack of respect shown to our family and our deceased loved one. I can give many examples but the three most hurtful were never offering their condolences to our family, never calling to let us know the cremation was complete, and, the most serious of the three, shipping our loved one's ashes to us in a used shoe box. They should not be in business. - (Heather Y)

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 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)
