Funeral Home Reviews
Alexandria, Indiana
On 10/18/2013 I gave a very strong negative review, As a result of the situation of not having ownership of my funeral policy I traveled from California to Indiana and staged a protest and picket in front of Owens Funeral Home, After three days Mike Owens came out and we had a 45 min conversation, We discovered we had both been deceived by a Jay Long, the trustee of a estate. Once Mr, Owens realized the truth and the facts he went to work and corrected the problem within one day, He called the insurance company and accomplished having the policy put into my name, I have been restored and made whole. THANK YOU Mike Owens

Valparaiso, Indiana
Callous and unprofessional. They made a difficult time that much harder by their lack of helpfulness, lack of compassion and lack of respect shown to our family and our deceased loved one. I can give many examples but the three most hurtful were never offering their condolences to our family, never calling to let us know the cremation was complete, and, the most serious of the three, shipping our loved one's ashes to us in a used shoe box. They should not be in business.

Waveland, Indiana
The workers always seem grumpy and like they are being put-out by our family both times I have been here for funerals. They also don't seem to like having children in their parlor even when they are a major part of our family. I was not overly impressed either time our family used their services.

May I read again my condolence sent to Paul David Reynolds?
