I've had a couple of close friends that have lost their mothers in the past few years. We've had many long talks about the loss they feel. What will I do without my cheerleader? Who do I talk to when I struggle with my rebellious child? How can I bring a new child into this world without my mom to s...

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

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.

My sister-in-law used this funeral home to handle my brother’s service. First of all their parking is not good most people had to park on the street. Unlike most funeral home there was no direction given when we were getting ready before the service to live the funeral procession. There was no escort to control the traffic on the hwy nor at any intersection it was non-existent. When we arrive at the grave site they were still putting the thing together. I know that the flowers don’t mean anything to these workers but you would have thought that since the family was there watching they would show some respect but all they did was throw them on the ground. Now my sister-in-law got all this respect for a cost of over $7,800.00. So I would advise you to go somewhere besides Wilson Funeral Home Tyronza Ar. PS it would be advisable for this director to be sent somewhere to be Retrained
