In many instances we learn compassion, empathy, faith, trust, and humility. Our own choices will often lead to natural consequences that...

Funeral Home Reviews
Wallington, New Jersey
Kamienski Funeral Home has quite the reputation. First, the father hires an habitual cuss John Condrick, who underhandledly has stolen excessive finances during Pauls wrongful imprisonment for 20 years, has driven away devout clientel and key staff members such as Henry Scarpa whom were pleasureable to deal with avoiding Johns arrogance and insults to families. His longtime companion works the office and numbers and has been known to have funneled finances out of the business, along with occupying the firms property in Passaic, which housed a former location and the vehicles. John, do yourself and the profession a favor, but mostly the funeral home, resign your license and become a customer yourself. You are not wanted by the communities you have deceived for years since licensed in 1959. Give Fred Surdyka the advantage to make Kamienski Funeral Home a respected institution you have ruinated. Your absence wont be missed.

Spanish Fork, Utah
Legacy Funeral Home in Spanish Fork, Utah that is run by Lance Nelson was the most memorable experience when it came to obtaining his service. I called many funeral homes around here on Memorial Day and all gave me ‘We will get back with you tomorrow.’ However, when I called Legacy Funerals, Lance came to the home within hours to help with arrangements. The prices were very exceptional and ideal as other funeral homes were way above and beyond our budget. In addition, Lance was available 24/7 and kept us inform daily along with great communication with everyone involved. Our family was so impressed with the way they took over things in a professional manner and helped us with our sorrow, along with willing to accommodate our traditions. Legacy Funeral is about helping the family with quality, NOT to make a profit!! Most definitely recommend Legacy Funeral Home to everyone! Thank you again Lance for everything, greatly appreciated!!!!

Lithonia, Georgia

New Britain, Connecticut
Very disappointing service! Paul Shaker turned out to be a very arrogant and unprofessional funeral director, and he over charged us the amount originally agreed upon. During the funeral service, only four ushers from their funeral home came and could barely hold up the casket, leaving many of our family members gasping and hoping our (petite sized) loved one would not be dropped! If you are researching a professional funeral home, I would look elsewhere!
