Over the years I've pondered the meaning of trials and sorrow that my loved ones or I have endured. Some believe there are lessons to learn from hardship. I agree. In many instances we learn compassion, empathy, faith, trust, and humility. Our own choices will often lead to natural consequences that...

Mercifully, the old dreary dictate about wearing only black no longer applies - although, when in doubt, it's still generally ...


Funeral Home Reviews
Country Club Hills, Illinois
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!!!!!!!!

Your computer system is of no value, other than posting you phone number. I wasn't able to use it to find a funeral let alone the obituary. totally unacceptable.

Eureka, Illinois
My friend wanted a simple no frills send off. Well I suppose that is exactly what she recieved. Parked in a corner of the basement (as in concret floor, pipes and crummy walls). She was a beautiful woman that could at times be excentric in her style. You would never have guessed that by the plane sheet that covered her. The array of headstones that were in the other corner were a nice touch, all that was missing were some spiderwebs and an errie tape in the back ground. There was not even a place to pray! I know that money plays a part, and that some people want simple but this was disrespectful. If they would donate a corner for the poor I would be willing to decorate it in memory of my friend, so no one elses family has to say good bye in such deplorable conditions.

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
