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.

Las Cruces, New Mexico
Gets funeral home is not on the ball sometimes I don't think they even know where the ball is

Bonifay, Florida
My father in law was in that funeral home.a rude is not the word for that man. We were under the tent after the service my husband and his brother and their Mother had not even got up.Mr. Sims had not told them there was any thing else he needed from them but. there was a small charge for the death date on the head stone the man could not even let them get up before her ask for his money.He had just been paid in full for the entire service.They certainly were not going to beat him out of a few dollars.They informed their Mother they would not take her there none of the rest of this family will ever go to those people. Needless to say they paid him right there by the grave side.

New Bedford, Massachusetts
My Aunt's service was July 3, at Rural Cemetary, at the spot her flatstone was going to be placed. All services were paid up front, but as of Jan, 2013, still no stone, Woman was very rude and insensitive, when I could finally get past their answering service, saying it was MY fault for not saying where the site was! Larry saw it, he was there! The woman said I had to call the stone engraver myself-wasn't that their job? Unpleasant experience, they just don't want to admit their mistake, I talked to other directors who agree with me, as does my attorney. Avoid this place, they just don't care...
