Funeral Home Reviews
Logan, West Virginia
I am astonished by just how unprofessional this funeral home truly is. I'm so glad there are other options in this small town. Compassion, professionalism, and consideration are so important during times that require their services and while attending a funeral I saw and heard the manner in which a dear loved one of the deceased was treated and I still wonder why they haven't reported them or that awful place hasn't been shut down. Not up to par with the kind of funeral home my family uses, I can't see why anyone's family would suffer through their rudeness and coldness.

My name is Scott Greene and I own Greene Funeral Service in Gastonia,North Carolina.We had helped the funeral home on a death of a family that they were serving.We did all the paperwork,preping and had the deceased flown out to their funeral home.They did not pay us for our service.I would never trust them to handle anything for a family of mine.It is a poor thing when you can not trust a funeral home.So I would say watch out for them.

I would like to express a sincere thanks to R & Q for their wonderful compassion and support during our time of need. They have a wonderful staff and they only aim to please. I would recommend them to anyone.

I want to say that Roger is such a great 't think person. He was so helpful with everything. I don't think he left anything out. He even let me do a slideshow for my dad. They are all great people.

RUDE - I just called to ask how to get to the FH by train and the person who answered the phone acted like I was an idiot. Not cool.
