Funeral Home Reviews
Sergeant Bluff, Iowa

Ames, Iowa
My parents passed away recently. We used stevens funeral home both times. For my fathers memorial they rushed us and cut the memorial short by 35 minutes. People showed up after we were rushed out of there... They didnt allow people to get up and speak about my father because they were in such a hurry for us to leave early. We paid ahead of time for burial of the urns... After 3 months there is still no name on the burial site, even though plaques were paid for ahead of time.... Wish we would have gone elsewhere! Very unhappy! Also the building is very small and not well set up to have a funeral.

Horrible, devastating experience. Wish they had negative marks for funeral directors.

The McCarthy brothers could not have been kinder, more professional or more helpful to our family in handling the arrangements for my father. We had a real sense of the integrity of this family as they helped us during this challenging time. In this day and age it is wonderful to find a company that truly cares and listens.

I hope I did not send a personal message to a friend which will appear in Morgan Jeffer's book on line. If I did, could you delete it. It was not nice and i would not want anyone to read it.
