they got my e-mail and never once informed our family of any written documents from any insurance agency and then began to charge us more than what they said would be the final price. we need proof before we pay legal proof.

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.

when my aunt in law passed, my mother in law had the services there. since day on it has been hell with these people. its been over 2 months and my mother in law is still having to fight with these people. she passed in houma Louisiana and was transported to here. they charge my mother in law for the transport and said they would pay the funeral home that transported her. over 2 months later they still haven't paid for transport. the book marks they done are the worst ones I ever seen. the bookmarks were late and then all the dates were wrong. I would want my body throw in the garbage before I would want my family to deal with these people. stay clear.

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.
