What is considered proper to wear to a funeral or memorial service differs according to local customs and geographic region. But a few general guidelines can help steer you. Mercifully, the old dreary dictate about wearing only black no longer applies - although, when in doubt, it's still generally ...

In many instances we learn compassion, empathy, faith, trust, and humility. Our own choices will often lead to natural consequences that...


Funeral Home Reviews
Albuquerque, New Mexico
When my mother passed away, it was very hard for me to handle, I had to deal with it by myself. Although I was alone the director at Salazar & Sons Mortuary made me feel at ease about arranging her services. I have and would recommended to my friends and co-workers.

Lola Howerton, is a pittiful excuse for a funeral director. She help to make my brothers funeral a total disaster. She never showed up at his grave side She continually made matters worse by discrespecting and being rude to several family members. THANKS YOU LOLA FOR MAKING A MY BROTHERS FUNERAL THE LAUGHING STOCK OF THE COMMUNITY.

My fathers services were as nice as it couldve been with this provider. The employees wore nice suits with white gloves and were meticulous with ushering the family hurriedly through the services and into the waiting cars. My fathers obituary was butchered and when we tried to have it corrected at 8:00 pm after it was published on the website, we were told it was too late and Ms Buggs rudely said she could not send in the correction to the local paper because it would cost money, even though I offered to pay for it. My fathers name is Charles but it read "Clarence" on the obituary. My sons name was misspelled. Other family members names were changed even though we tried do have everything corrected before it went to print, it was unsuccessful. The obituaries that were handed out at the funeral had my fathers name as Clarence too. We weren't allowed to mingle and talk with family and friends who had driven 6 hours or more to pay respect, because they ushered us straight from the cars to our seats, then began the service. I don't care about the nice suits they wore or the limos they allowed us to ride in. My father and my family was disrespected with all the mistakes. It was just too much. I give them 1 star because they did a fine job making my daddy look nice.

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
