In reply to Joe Browne's complaint---Joe--We are sorry that you feel this way and understand your being upset. However, a funeral director can only advise a family on closing a casket. We cannot force a family to say yes to a closed casket. We are not ashamed of our work-we go farther than most would. We advise a family, but CANNOT force them to make a decision. We do what the family asks us to do after we have made our recommendations. We hope that your heart can rest in the fact that Tim is at peace.

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

Len E. Ellis has been our family funeral director for many, many years. The professionalism,support, of both Len & Staff far exceeds most. I would recommend Len E. Ellis professional services to anyone who has lost a love one and wants a funeral director that cares.

8/2/13 I would not recommend this funeral home to anyone. Communication between Schleifer and my family was poor. Schleifer would only speak with family regarding decisions if confronted. He thought that he should speak with the deceased's friend for decision making. Plus, I am still waiting for a corrected death certificate from 4/26/13 due to Ted Schleifer's error and he is doing nothing to try and expedite things so my aunt can get what is due to her, but Schleifer made sure he was paid upfront for his services (if that is what you want to call them.) My advice is to stay clear of this funeral home and director.

My family had a terrible experience at the J Allen Hooper Funeral Home. Calls and e-mails were rarely returned, even to answer the most simple questions. The person helping us actually complained to us that he was overworked. My grandmother looked terrible at the viewing and the makeup was literally cracking off of her hands. I know it was not "her" but we ended up deciding to close the casket because they did such a terrible job. I would avoid this one at all costs.
