Funeral Home Reviews
Laurinburg, North Carolina
My family member has been gone for a year now but it still hurts. What hurts is that this Funeral home Director name Vicky jackson tried to get more money from my dead family member and tried to get more money from the family and the government. No paperwork was done correctly for his death with the government no honors as she said. They kept giving us a whammy prior to the viewing and the burial please don't use this company (RUNNNNNNN)

My family is disgusted with this funeral Home ethic and how greedy one of the owners was about my family memeber death.

My family has always used Feggins-Feggins funeral Home because of the professional manner in which they conduct services. The caring staff and owners handle all details according to family wishes. From first contact to last, they always conduct services in an orderly, respectful way. They run a smooth and efficient operation.

Death, although a natural and accepted part of life is not something we are prepared to handle alone. Being an only child whose mother had already died, when my grandmother died a few months ago, my daughter and myself found strength, understanding and yes, compassion in the most unexpected place. My daughter, Alana, was the pillar of the family at this time. She held us all together! But to my surprise and delight, God blessed this family with a blessing in the form of Mr. Don Brown. Mr. Brown is a businessman, of course. Mr. Brown is also a man of much compassion and understanding. He stood by this family and helped us through a very difficult time. We made informed decisions. He forced nothing on us we did not want. We were given choices. He led us through a very sad time without making us feel sad, frightened or just lacking of knowledge. When we were about to loose it at times, he would redirect us to happier thoughts of times with our loved one. Mr. Brown never made this family feel only the wealthy could have beautiful services. And not once did he attempt to force on us what we could not afford. The service was beautiful and all of his employees were professional in dress and behavior and all possessed a compassionate swagger that touched this family's heart and will always be remembered. I recommend this company 100%

Oh! man please don't use this company. They switched on us at the last minute and we had the funeral at one of there chapel it was horrid, old and a man played the old run down piano. They gave us only one wreath for my brother and no more. Especially with the money upfront that she wanted, they could have done better than that.It didn't show they cared. Just greedy
