Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
Dear Family Members: This is a note from Bernetta Ramsey. She is the granddaughter of Cora Vee Robinson. Cora was the daughter of Bertram Thomas Blakey Sr's half-brother(Aaron Herron(Herring)). She explains what happened when they used Spriggs & Watson Funeral Home to bury her grandmother last Fall. We are both asking the Pittsburgh Blakey Family and friends to take this into consideration when having to choose a Funeral Home to bury a loved one. "My grandma Cora Robinson died on September 13,2012 we had went to Spriggs and Watson for them to do the services Mr. Anderson is the person that we dealt with he owed us a refund that we didn't get November we talked to him on several different times was told we would get the refund. So our next step was to send a certified letter which he didn't accept so had to paid extra money for a constable to serve him. We had to take him to Magistrate January 24,2013 which he didn't even show up the Judge ruled in our favor. Why he felt that he should keep more than he was to get I don't know showed us he's a shaddy man" Thank You

Hello - my uncle, Turk Miller, was the original director of this funeral home, the only one in Danville. I have many happy memories of visiting the funeral/family home at 10 W. Mahoning during my youth. As I recall, my uncle's professionalism was utmost in his work as well as his insistance in having him who followed him hold the same values. I can only hope that his values have continued to this day.

Dealing with CR and his crew is like dealing with a bunch of poorly trained monkeys. My father died very suddenly, without any true preparation in funerary matters. So you'd think that Piatt&Barnhill would take the opportunity to do the best job they could. They didn't. Created by CR and his terrible toupee our questions were greeted by a series of bumbling "uhs" and "I don't know". If my father's body wasn't already in transit I would have walked out then and know now what I do, I should have. But that was only the beginning. After countless clerical errors on the death certificates, they refused to mail them to us. Demanding that we stop in and pick them up. For being in the business of helping alleviate stress and work during a time of grief theses people, they fail immensely.

Tacky and tasteless. Asked for payment up front while were 150 miles out by car (we didn't know this when we started out on our trip) At graveside in front of priest even, claimed that casket was cheaper veneer version than used for another family member although the funeral home that embalmed the deceased cited model numbers were exact and the price had not changed in 9 years (that means Henney overcharged us 9 years ago). Would NEVER recommend this group.
