At my mother's wake I noticed there was no kneeler in front of her coffin. Two of my friends noticed it as well. I addressed my concern with the 3 funeral employees. I asked why there was no kneeler, and since I thought it may have been tied to a covid mandate, I mentioned that the CDC reversed its mandates last week. The gentleman who responded said yes, but each business owner can regulate his own business. None of the 3 employees offered to bring out a kneeler. I honestly don't understand why there was a concern about a kneeler considering the people at the wake were hugging, kissing, shaking hands, and were within inches of each other at times. There was no mask mandate at Slattery. There was no social distancing mandate at Slattery. No one checked vaccine status at Slattery. How could anyone at a kneeler receive or transmit any kind of infection kneeling versus if they were standing? I am a church going Catholic ... and have been my entire life. My mother was also a life-time church going Catholic ... until she was no longer physically able to. I felt it was anti-Catholic to withhold a kneeler. They knew her Mass was at a Catholic church. And they had a crucifix on the wall behind her casket. After none of the employees made a move to get a kneeler, or asked me to wait while they got a kneeler, I told them I was very disappointed. It was disrespectful in my opinion, and anti-Catholic as well. And why bring stress into an already stressful situation? - (D. Evans)
I was not aware that a Funeral Director would side with one member of the family and believe the lies spoken against the rest of the siblings. He is friends with that member and never gave the rest of the siblings the opportunity to hear our side and be included in my father’s funeral arrangements.
When I called the funeral home to inquire about my father’s remains and to see if the Medical Examiner accepted the case, I spoke to Debbie and she lied about the examiner not accepting his case. She was rude as well. We( my siblings and I) never received a call from the Funeral Director or Debbie so we could be included in the funeral arrangements. The funeral director, Kevin Comeau, was suppose to call one of my sisters and inform her about my dads ashes but sided with the other sibling.
We are so disgusted with this funeral home director. No compassion or empathy was given to us. He picked sides without knowing the whole story and chose to listen to the lies spoken about us.
He should of remained neutral and not picked sides and should have brought us all in so we can grieve together and be included in such a painful process.
Makes me wonder if other funeral home directors behave the same way. So disappointed and disgusted with this place. Be aware! - (E. Padro)
This company refused or had the decently to pick up my sisters (Roxannes Horbatuck) body even after I said her son (Brandan) was out of the country (Serbia) and might not be able to get back into the country for 15-25 days. As a result she has been left at the morgue for over 13 days now and counting. They refuse to let me make the funeral arrangements because they were worried about her (Roxannes) life insurance policy’s. I was told I had no say what so ever because her son would be in charge of the insurance money. Per N.J. Code § 10:90-8.3 - Funeral and burial contracts Because her son was not here I could make her arrangements.
Tuttle Funeral Home is a disgusting, disgraceful, heartless, greedy, and callus company, who actions are unforgivable. - (Matilda McClusky)
My family and I would like to say a big heartfelt thanks to Johnson Funeral Home. You truly made a big difference during such a difficult time. There is nothing we can suggest for improvement, we cannot thank you enough for the support your entire staff provided. My family was overwhelmed by the compassion shown to us during such a very sad time. It was appreciated very much. God bless you and your family. - (Tereka Wilson)
The worst possible experience at one of the worst times in my life. I trusted this company who likes to brag about how long they’ve been in business and somehow seems to believe because of that it excuses them from their actions. Their website states that they assist and guide you every step of the way. I assure you they are only interested in the profit from your heartache. My grandson was delivered to his resting place in a pickup truck and the makeshift casket was carried by Mr. Boren across the cemetery as if he was carrying a cooler to a high school football game. No flowers that had been sent were delivered to the graveside. The tent was molding and looked as though it had been stored outside. Absolutely the worst of the worst and want everyone that I can tell the story to hear. After questioning Mr. Boren about his actions and how disrespectful the funeral was handled he once again only wanted to point out about how long the company had been in business. We paid upfront and of course they said everything would be handled professionally and respectfully, that was the farthest from the truth. I’ve since called several other reputable funeral homes unlike Boren Conner and was then told that they didn’t even charge for an infant burial. STAY AWAY from Boren Conner Funeral Home. Please make a phone call to any other funeral home other than this company. It’s a memory that no one in our family wanted and could only hope that it was handled with dignity and respect. I can assure you that the only concern for Mr. Boren is how much money he can make from the horrible tragedy you are enduring without any help from him or his company. Again, please make a phone call to a reputable funeral home other than Boren Conner. - (Brent Hallford)
I have no good recommendation for Dodo Mortuary, they are the worst place to entrust your loved one with in life or in death. They are greedy bastards interested in profit alone and will do anything for more money including holding hostage your best friend and threatening to throw her remains into the sea for a Hundred Dollars more. They have withheld her ashes even after being paid in full, in excess of that agreed and without prior consent. This is the grim-reaper cut loose on friends and relatives.
The worst place in the world! - (Jennifer Johnson)
After suffering the loss of our mother we continued to suffer further atrocities for 3 days at the hands of an organization that leads loved ones to believe they are in some way affiliated with the VA by their name alone.
It took a small army of 5 wonderful people: Chris Dusrenne, Ron Snell, Lisa Carter, Justin Ferraro and Don Allen to pull off the most amazingly beautiful funeral in record time. Chris instantly took charge and called Ron to make it happen, then Lisa set everything up in 24 hrs. including Fort Logan National Cemetery. Justin and Don escorted our mother to her mass and burial in Denver. I almost forgot 2 more people - Ed Rottenborn the beautician who did more than just give us each a lock of mom’s hair and Hope Alvarez who assisted my sister with picture setup. You and your loved one will be cared for by a top notch organization with perfection, professionalism, and honest from the heart caring.
Words alone cannot express the gratitude my sister and I feel about Swan Law Funeral Directors and their outstanding staff. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Linda and Nan

The funeral home director took money for a tomb stone that he never provided evidence was purchased. My mother wrote a check for 500 and never got the tombstone for my uncle's grave. She trusted the funeral home director. I hope he makes good on the fiduciary agreement. - (M. Harper Payton)
Two weeks ago my 38 year old Grandson took his life. You can't imagine the sorry that was placed with South Park. Several families were impacted by this death so some discord was expected. I must say that Lisa, Andrew, Monica and Marcy handled the services with professionalism and dignity. Thanks so much for making a tragic situation bearable. - (Norman Peters)
I want to personally say thank you so much for going way beyond what is normal in the recent death of my baby sister, Angela Sue Jernigan. Your kindness was one thing but you opened your heart up to my family at a very hurtful time that we had to face. I thank God for each of you that helped us and provided so much love and kindness during our time of great need. We were overwhelmed by your generosity and from the bottom of my heart, thank you for making such a heartbreaking experience, more bearable by all that you did. God bless you all at Heartland Funeral Home. - (David Jernigan)
My father in law was in that funeral home.a rude is not the word for that man. We were under the tent after the service my husband and his brother and their Mother had not even got up.Mr. Sims had not told them there was any thing else he needed from them but. there was a small charge for the death date on the head stone the man could not even let them get up before her ask for his money.He had just been paid in full for the entire service.They certainly were not going to beat him out of a few dollars.They informed their Mother they would not take her there none of the rest of this family will ever go to those people. Needless to say they paid him right there by the grave side.

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. - (Loretta Schiller.....Temple, Tx.)
I can not express the exceptional, personable, and professional service for my husband's service. First Class 100%+. Due to obstacles in transportation, Director Manuel drove a bereaved wife and family to Pearland from Spring, Tx. to plan his services!! A business is a business, and South Park astounded me, over the top. FIRST CLASS. I don't believe this happens often, my heartfelt thanks. Special thanks to Manuel,Lisa,Antionette,Steve,Bill ad Pricilla. In time of need please experience the peace and comfort only South Park can provide. Mahalo to the staff! - (Mrs. Renee Valentine)
This funeral home not only over charges people at the worst times of their lives they seem to think its ok!!! They treated my loved one with complete disrespect and turned a very hard time into a complete disaster !! I would not recommend this place to anyone !! - (Pine)
