Funeral Home Reviews
Longview, Texas
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.

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.

McGregor, Texas
My brother , Robert Stephens died June 30th. He had a graveside service through Cole Funeral Home, in McGregor. The day my sister and I went to plan his funeral we were told we would have to pay in full that day. We paid over $11,000. Then another $11,000 was paid from his estate. My sister and I have been trying since that time to recover our money. We've had lies, promises and a lot of lip service, but no money. I used my credit cars to pay my half, that bill is due in a few days..but still no money!! I'll have to deplete my savings accounts to get it paid on time. I would advise anyone not to die in Mcgregor or go to Waco to find someone who is not so dishonest. My sister was told several times that the money would be delivered to her house, that has never happened. You don't have a negative star rating for this review, it is even less than one star.
