Funeral Home Reviews
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.

DO NOT DO BUSINESS WITH THIS MAN! It's a good thing his primary customers are already dead, considering how he treats his live customers. In fact if you are unlucky enough to rent housing from him, you and your family may soon wind up as a customer at his funeral home. Perhaps that's the real reason he painted over and then refused to deal with *black mold* in a home he rents to a family with young children, two of whom have serious health problems. After consistently harassing (as in, peeking into their windows, sending *late-night* texts demanding to come over right then, ETC) he decided to tell cut off their water with NO warning. He is to pay utilities, the family has always paid their rent, this was uncalled for and illegal, especially in the middle of summer!!! The diabetic child cannot wash his hands before testing his blood glucose levels. He refuses to be reasonable and turn the water back on. Hmm, is business really that bad that you have to drum up more customers?"

DON'T TRUST Funeral Director (Manager) SHARON HARVEY of Thompson Funeral Home Port Gibson MS!!!!!!! On April 18th 2012 we met with Sharon to make arrangements for Anna May Johnson.The necessary forms were signed for the insurance company, and a cash balance was paid on April 20th 2012. Funeral Services were OK. (not the worst-not the best)!! At the request of Sharon Harvey an additional assignment of 2,000.00 (from an additional insurance policy) was to be sent to the funeral home and she in turn would send that money to us. The isurance company has verified that they did indeed send a check to Sharon Harvey, and when we lasted spoke in July of 2012 she PROMISED to send a money order. Since than (it is now October) Sharon Harvey has not sent a money order, or returned any messages or phone calls!!!! This woman has done nothing but add STRESS to an already emotional family event!!!! To make matters worst the woman who passed was a close friend to Sharon Harvey's grandmother the original owner of Thompson Funeral Home!!!!!
