Funeral Home Reviews
Rio Grande City, Texas
The Sanchez Funeral Home did an excellent service for my grandfather. The facility is very clean, and the service they offer are the best. Everyone is very helpful. There is always someone available to help you, even after hours. At Sanchez they treat you like family. I would like to thank all the staff, for all the work they did.

I find that your list of obituaries is very unreliable. You were handling the details of the death of Justin Miller who passed away on 12/26. I called Grimes to learn of the details of the service and was told arrangements hadn't been made yet, but your website would be updated immediately when finalized. The service happened on 12/29 in Harper. I was told by a family member that the time was 3:00pm. I still returned to your website up until the time we left from home to attend. We traveled 2 hours, from Bastrop, to attend and when we arrived learned the service began @ 2:00 instead. What is the purpose of your website if it is not to supply accurate and updated details. I think it is very irresponsible not to have this information available. Therefore I rate your funeral services rating 1 star.

I have tried for days to sign a guestbook for my friend that passed away. I have gone to every site available and Slay Memorial Funeral Ctr. has no such guestbook available. I called and the director said he would take my name and give to the family.

Every story has two sides. North may have theirs, but here is our family's. North's Funeral Home is NOT concerned with your family during your time of grief. Our loved one, Oscar Villalobos, passed away this past week. He prearranged for his final moments with North's. Unfortunately, his final arrangements and family were handled with less respect than I'm sure he felt would happen. Apparently, every step of funeral arrangements must be made with North's for they will not guide nor assist the family unless it is paid for. The family's understanding of prearrangement did not meet the North's understanding. Please verify if all issues have been addressed: transportation of body, embalming, visitations, memorial service and certainly make sure that all these occur within their open hours otherwise it might get in the way of their evening plans. Additionally, get everything in writing and always know who with you are talking. We called and spoke with Sandy North stating we were coming in from out of town and we had flowers being sent for Oscar. She told husband they would hold them. However; we found a note on their doors DO NOT leave anything for Oscar Villalobos. Family has not made arrangements. Then, when we asked about the flowers, Ms. North told my husband they never delivered. In fact, the florist was called and told to pick them up. For a moment, let's forget the apparent lying and lack of respect. Let's say, we the family, did not make arrangements. A good business designed around service ( according to their sign, serving people for 100 years), you would think that a conversation would happen with the family to identify any shortcomings in arrangements. That they would insure all aspects were covered and a clear understanding of arrangements were made for both parties. Instead, we were told the body was in too bad of condition, it would take too long to make him look right and we wouldn't be able to see him until the next day before cremation. They did nothing to ease the family's pain and give them one last opportunity to say goodbye to a father, a grandfather, a brother...a good man. By the way, the cosmetic work they did was good. Oscar looked very natural, very much at peace. Pretty good for a body that was in "pretty bad condition". So, that is our side of this story. But, don't take our word for the service...ask anyone in Abilene. Ask the State School what their thoughts are of North's Funeral Home.
