New York, New York
It's taken me a while to be able to get my feelings together. With a loss of a grandmother is hard enough. But the horrible work that was done on my grandma is traumatic I'm an EMT so I'm not weak, but to see the string hanging out of her nose really! I'm so sorry grandma that you were taken there this is not the way someone wants to see their loved one Ortiz funeral home on 72nd in NYC stay away

My fathers services were as nice as it couldve been with this provider. The employees wore nice suits with white gloves and were meticulous with ushering the family hurriedly through the services and into the waiting cars. My fathers obituary was butchered and when we tried to have it corrected at 8:00 pm after it was published on the website, we were told it was too late and Ms Buggs rudely said she could not send in the correction to the local paper because it would cost money, even though I offered to pay for it. My fathers name is Charles but it read "Clarence" on the obituary. My sons name was misspelled. Other family members names were changed even though we tried do have everything corrected before it went to print, it was unsuccessful. The obituaries that were handed out at the funeral had my fathers name as Clarence too. We weren't allowed to mingle and talk with family and friends who had driven 6 hours or more to pay respect, because they ushered us straight from the cars to our seats, then began the service. I don't care about the nice suits they wore or the limos they allowed us to ride in. My father and my family was disrespected with all the mistakes. It was just too much. I give them 1 star because they did a fine job making my daddy look nice.

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

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"

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