Funeral Home Reviews
Cortez, Colorado
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!

I really do not know how to e-mail. I was hoping this would work. I am trying to ask the family of AJ Farris to contact a special friend of AJ's, my father in-law Clyde Garcia whose telephone number is 719-580-2588. AJ & Clyde worked side by side for many many years. Will you please forward this for me? I HOPE. Thank You: John

We recently lost our mother due to complications after an unexpected surgery. What a shock! It was devastating. Anyone who has been through the loss of a loved one knows it is a daunting and overwhelming experience. We were all dreading the trip to the funeral home to start the process of putting mom to rest. However, Barb and the incredible staff at Swan-Law made the experience as painless as possible. The staff was professional, thoughtful and most of all genuine. Yes, guiding you through the process is their job. However, each person we dealt with was sincere, gentle and understanding. The on-site reception room we opted to use after the memorial was perfect. It was so easy to have guests simply cross the hall to visit and share stories about mom. We were not pressured to use the room, it was simply offered. Barb also suggested a very modest menu that fit our needs perfectly. My father is so happy with the service and attention we received, he plans on making pre-arrangements for his memorial with Swan-Law's pre-planning service. We shed plenty of tears planning mom's services, but were surprised to also share quite a few smiles and laughs at the same time. I would highly recommend using the Swan-Law for your funeral/memorial needs.

This funeral home proudly serves American Terrorist! The owner, Peter Stefan, justifies his actions based on the fact that people such as Lee Harvey Oswald, Timothy McVeigh, and Ted Bundy received funerals as well. What Stefan forgets is that Tameraln Tsarnaev was not and American citizen. If you use this funeral home, you are supporting a business that supports terrorism!
