Funeral Home Reviews
Homewood, Illinois
Tews Funeral Home & Ryans Funeral Home are owned & operated by the same person, Mike Ryan. Please beware! Tews Funeral Home gave some of our sons ashes, after cremation, to people who attended the service without asking permission. We did not find this out until months later. My husband was never asked. IT WOULD HAVE NEVER BEEN AUTHORIZED. One of the people who received the ashes was his x-girlfriend. We feel she is part of the reason he is not with us anymore. My husband feels so violated. After finally getting ahold of Mt. Ryan, he kept beating around the bush and would not answer. Please beware. We wouldn't want this to happen to anyone else.

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!!!!!!!!

Our family has been taken care of by this funeral home for 40 years or more and we've never had a complaint. Mr. Lummis makes the entire ordeal easier and helps with so many of the minute details.

I am writing on behalf of the family of deceased, Larry S Edwards. I came to Chicago, from Ohio, to attend the funeral of Larry Edwards. I accompanied my family to your facility to help with the arrangements for Larry's funeral, on several occasions. I just wanted to tell you how impressed we were with the professionalism of your entire staff. With so much involved with the loss of a loved one and then having to plan a funeral, it was so comforting to walk into your offices and leave feeling as if the funeral was one less thing we had to stress about. We felt that Gatlings would take care of not only our loved one, but our family as well. The staff at Gatlings did exactly that. Your drivers were always on time and courteous. Your entire staff were extremely well dressed. Your facility was immaculate and all of your workers were very well organized. They were also very patient, especially at the end of the funeral when everyone was saying their goodbyes to loved ones, your driver said for us to take as long as we needed. Your drivers assisted everyone in and out of the cars, they drove as if they were carrying precious cargo. We never felt rushed or as though we were an inconvenience in any way. Your office staff were extremely patient with my family members. We made several changes to the obituary after the draft had been printed. Your staff continually told us, 'We are here to do whatever you need, we'll take care of you.' Our loved one, Larry Edwards, had been very sick for a very long time. When we viewed the body, everyone kept saying how peaceful he looked and what a wonderful job Gatlings had done. We cannot thank you enough for taking care of our loved one and our family. By the time our experience with Gatlings came to an end, we felt as though we had gained a new family. Please share this letter with your employees. I want them to know how very much they are appreciated. The family of Larry S. Edwards

I tried to leave a condolence message for the Bennington family, but could only find where I could leave a card for $6.90. I will try later, but was disappointed that I couldn't since we will be out of town for the service.
