"Very well. Funeral Director
-
was perfectly empathetic (not morbid or patronizing), knowledgeable, kind, considerate," prompt, and a pleasure to talk with as we signed a lot of legal paperwork and she explained everything to me. Now I believe prearranging our own wishes for the end of our lives is the kindest thing we can ever do for our families. It made an emotionally difficult task as easy as it could possibly be. And no one there tried to sell me a fancier urn or anything my mother hadn't already chosen for herself. The Neptune Society took care of everything. The current prices for this service and for having one's ashes scattered somewhere seem high to me, but I'm very frugal. Perhaps they're quite reasonable, and it's my attitude (and wallet) that are not.

"They started the mortuary work before my family gave permission. They wanted to give my mother a cardboard and cloth casket. I was under the impression that it" was a metal casket. When I started to question what they were doing they gave me attitude and became passive aggressive. The behavior of these people was su stressful I had to see my doctor and I file a police report. We are still trying to get the over charges for the funeral settled.

How to Avoid Funeral Planning Scams

The average funeral costs more than $7,000. Avoid costly mistakes when planning or preplanning funeral arrangements to make sure your final investment is sound.

Knowing yourself and giving yourself permission to request others to respect your process are very important, says Sabbath. (Photo courtesy of Angie's List Member Heather B. of Salt Lake City, Utah)

They were very nice, friendly, supportive, accommodating and they had a high quality of customer service. Their pricing is not the cheapest but I found it to be fair. We plan to go back to deal with our own arrangements as well.

It was fine. I wasn't totally satisfied. When I went in there, they didn't have him looking anything like he looked. His coloring was very off and his mouth was shaped oddly. His face was white and his hands were yellow. They put a little bit of makeup on him after I made a comment and then they used lip stick to make his

a little bit darker. However, they were more of a pink color, looking unusual. All things considered, I wouldn't use them their services again in the future.

helped my family in a time when we were vulnerable due to the loss of my step-mother.

I am the ex-wife of a man who died in November, married for 30 years, and living with & providing caregiver services for the deceased who had Alzheimers. Due to a family dispute, this facility treated me with absolute disrespect and coldness. As an ex-wife, I need a death certificate to apply for Social Security benefits, and they did not give me the information on how to obtain one for over two months and three phone calls. I spoke to the owner of the facility during the last call, and he told me that they didn't have to talk to me at all, since I am an ex-wife. What would it cost them to have given me the information in the first place? And no, there wasn't any yelling or screaming on my part, ...though I am upset by the way they conduct their business.

Initial emails went unanswered; however, phone calls resolved the issue.
The removal of my wife's body and the cremation were timely and professional.
