Funeral Home Reviews
Port Gibson, Mississippi
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!!!!!

Preparation and Service was fine. Follow-up was neglected: failed to get death certificate in a timely manner (nearly a month); failed to send pre-ordered and paid-for videos (nearly 3 months); and failed to add a Grave Marker on grave (still not done).

I would like to thank Freeman Funeral Home for the way they help me get thru the grief of my sister, Nancy Joan Pierce. I was not able to attend her home going, as I had been sick with an illness and not able to travel. Loved the tribute video they put out about her. I want to thank Cindy especially for always being there to answer my questions. I order several video to send to brother and sister as we were not able to attend. Again a big thank you.
