This company's sales representative took horrible advantage of the guardian of my elderly mother,selling her a new funeral plan with new merchandise totaling almost 12000 without contacting Baldwin Fairchild to confirm the 1994 preneed contract they paid almost 9000 for.This was a horrible thing to do.They still have made no effort to refund the 4750 they should have refunded last year.I would never recommend dealing with a funeral home without researching to make sure this never haopens to your loved ones.

This is for my Aunt Sis who was not just a Aunt to me but like a mother too. Aunt Sis never complained but she sure would keep you in line. I will never forget the best times of my life when I was suppose to be coming to Aunt Sis for the summer and it turned out to be the best times of my life. Aunt Sis would have to sendthe forces out to find me and my cousin Bill because I didn't want to come home. It was like yesterday. I can still smell the breakfast she would cook fore me and the fried chicken in the evenings she was the best Aunt anyone could ask for. Aunt Sis I am going to miss talking to you and all the good times I had with you. You always stuck up for me and I will love you forever in my heart. God Bless you and keep you safe and warm until we all meet again. I Love You from the bottom of my heart!

I am writing on behalf of the family of deceased, Larry S Edwards.
I came to Chicago, from Ohio, to attend the funeral of Larry Edwards. I accompanied my family to your facility to help with the arrangements for Larry's funeral, on several occasions.
I just wanted to tell you how impressed we were with the professionalism of your entire staff. With so much involved with the loss of a loved one and then having to plan a funeral, it was so comforting to walk into your offices and leave feeling as if the funeral was one less thing we had to stress about. We felt that Gatlings would take care of not only our loved one, but our family as well. The staff at Gatlings did exactly that.
Your drivers were always on time and courteous. Your entire staff were extremely well dressed. Your facility was immaculate and all of your workers were very well organized. They were also very patient, especially at the end of the funeral when everyone was saying their goodbyes to loved ones, your driver said for us to take as long as we needed. Your drivers assisted everyone in and out of the cars, they drove as if they were carrying precious cargo. We never felt rushed or as though we were an inconvenience in any way.
Your office staff were extremely patient with my family members. We made several changes to the obituary after the draft had been printed. Your staff continually told us, 'We are here to do whatever you need, we'll take care of you.'
Our loved one, Larry Edwards, had been very sick for a very long time. When we viewed the body, everyone kept saying how peaceful he looked and what a wonderful job Gatlings had done.
We cannot thank you enough for taking care of our loved one and our family.
By the time our experience with Gatlings came to an end, we felt as though we had gained a new family.
Please share this letter with your employees. I want them to know how very much they are appreciated.
The family of Larry S. Edwards
