Funeral Home Reviews
Las Vegas, Nevada
They were friendly at first, but showed no attention to detail, they sent or Father's remains to the wrong address then stuck us with the bill to get his remains back, basically they said there were done and told us to call Fed Ex to pay and have them ship the remains to the correct address. When a loved one dies it is already a trying time, then when the funeral home you deal with makes it even harder with no compassion or willingness to fix there mistake it's just unimaginable. I would Not recommended anyone to use Desert memorial services if you want good compassionate correct service!

Short and sweet; this is a business obviously under the influence of a caring mother and grandmother. Mrs. Williams cares more about getting your family through a difficult time than she does about how much you're spending. A mortuary is no place to visit but if you must, go where they care and where you won't get taken advantage of.

Chris is very good, the room is nice and large. My mother looked beautiful. I would rate it higher if one certain person could be nicer to family members.

I attended the services of Vicki Pittman yesterday and was very disappointed in your services. With today technology you should have known due to the weather, there will have to be a DELAYED BURIAL. The family should not had to put through that long ride from the church to Washington Memory Gardens walk in the mud and standing water to be told this. The Family entrusted you to make this a less painful experience as possible. But LEAKS & Sons let the family and friends down. I will never use your services or refer you to any one. This was very insensitive on Leaks & Sons!!!!!!!!
