This funeral home leaves little to the emotions during a trying time right from the first initial phone call. No patience, little understanding, 'Lets get this over' attitude is out-right wrong and should be called out. Steer clear of this emotional nightmare!!!!!!

Just want to comment that I have never been treated with such caring staff (and the price was very reasonable too).

They did not provide the service they should have. I had a write obit and get death certificate signed. When I confronted them about the service I was told to take my father somewhere else. This was two days before the service. Obit didn't get in paper until the day before and many people didn't know about Dad's death until after the service. Nobody should be treated the way I was treated. So beware if you take your loved ones here because you'll probably get less than you bargained for.
