Funeral Home Reviews
Las Vegas, Nevada
Laura Sussman is the most compassionate person. She has the most difficult job and yet she does it with great poise and all effortlessly. Laura knows her bussiness well and is incredible at her job. She was always available to talk and ask questions and took care of everything you asked her. She made you feel at ease and comfortable knowing that your loved one would be taken care of with the most tender loving care. I highly recommend Kraft-Sussman to everyone.

I would not recommend the Muriel Barber Funeral Home in Laytonsville, MD. The charges are steep ($500/hour for funeral costs), and the staff is inflexible. The decor is outdated as well. I would choose an alternate setting for a warm family gathering. This funeral home rushed us out at the end of our 3 hour period because they had booked something else. Not the feeling you want as you end a day of grieving.
