"My family and I recently experienced the sudden and unexpected loss of my daughter. I plan to immediate take action to seek the guidance of this great company to plan for the services" my other family member and I will need when our time of transition comes. Death comes to all of us, and if you have the means I recommend you entrust yourself and loved ones to the care of
Mortuary.

"The Director met with my brother and I the evening my father passed away and was very respectful. They picked up my father from the hospice facility, arranged for the medical examiner" to view his body after the required amount of days set by the state and then they performed the cremation. They made prayer cards for us, they set the obituaries out to the two newspapers as we requested, and they got the requested amount of death certificates we needed. The whole process was very smooth and made it easier considering this was a very difficult time for our family. In the future we would definitely use
Funeral Home again. We had compared them to other facilities in the area when we knew my father did not have much time left and their prices were a lot more reasonable than anyone else's in the area.

was very responsive the minute we called upon the notification of my father's death. My parents had made arrangements prior to his death. Coffin, flowers, funeral arrangements with St.

of the Cross Church, songs, church contacts, mortuary costs, viewing, floral arrangements, viewing room, death certificates, electronic guest sign in, military gun salute -- all of this was arranged by them. They were even gracious about letting UCSD take the body temporarily so they could finish their research on Alzheimers which my father partook during the onset of his Alzheimers. Even that they made so easy at a big inconvenience to their preparation of my father's body. They were so hospitable in everything. They made everything so easy during a time of devastating loss and

We had our 17 year old dog put to sleep by the vet at our home. We had contacted
Southport Funeral Homes Provider Name Locked
a few days ahead of time to schedule a time for them to come to our home to get her.

handled the phone call and was professional, knowledgeable and compassionate.

arrived on time and was very professional, compassionate and respectful of our very raw grief. He completed the paperwork regarding our preferences and urn selection and then allowed us to wrap her in a fresh, folded white sheet and place her in his car.
Southport Funeral Homes Provider Name Locked
brought other services and products to our attention but did not give us the 'hard sell'. We were never in doubt that

would handle her with dignity. I have worked in a veterinary office before and I did not want her handled in the way they process deceased pets in this particular practice (bagged in a plastic bag and placed in a freezer until the 'disposal' guy shows up. This particular vendor threw the bags into an open bed truck. Horrifying and disrespectful).

provides a terrific service and will handle your special family member with dignity and respect.

My
Southport Funeral Homes Provider Name Locked
died in a car accident on Mother's Day - an autopsy was required. My sister and brother-in-law made the decision to request donations be made in my
Southport Funeral Homes Provider Name Locked
's memory to a specific doctor with genetics department at Children's Hospital in Boston and were finalizing how the donations had to be addressed.
Southport Funeral Homes Provider Name Locked
was very impatient as we waited to get the details from the doctor - he pressed for the doctor's name and wrote the obituary without the proper address. He never did the correction in the newspaper or the website. I went with my sister & brother-in-law to make the arrangements for the wake and funeral. I stressed at this meeting that I expected individuals with mobility issues to be moved to the front of the line. I also informed Mr.
Southport Funeral Homes Provider Name Locked
that my father would be using a wheelchair and or walker, that a friend would be on crutches and if my
Southport Funeral Homes Provider Name Locked
's friend, who was in the accident with him, came to the wake and funeral, accommodations would have to be made. I was assured this would happen. Mr.
Southport Funeral Homes Provider Name Locked
also went over what would happen the day of the funeral and that the family would all sit together on one side of the church. When reviewing the bill Mr.
Southport Funeral Homes Provider Name Locked
did not verbally state when payment was due, he pointed to what he had written on the invoice!! I asked if he waited a down payment or if he would accept a credit card I would pay the account in full. I was told he did not accept credit cards and payment in full could be made the day of the wake or funeral. I discovered a week afterwards that my sister and brother-in-law did not realize the funeral had been paid for by my parents or that payment had been due the day of the services.

I thought the condolence book was in an awkward position and wonder if everyone signed the book. Nobody seemed keep the prayer cards stocked and I believe a number of individuals did not receive one. I had to ask that more be put out. I also discovered after the fact my friend on crutches was able to go to the front of the line, but the staff at the front door made jokes about her booted foot and did not offer her any assistance with the stairs. The funeral is why I am writing this review. I arrived at the funeral home with my elderly parents. I pulled into a parking space because I had to assist my father from the car and get the wheel chair out of my
Southport Funeral Homes Provider Name Locked
. Someone from
Southport Funeral Homes Provider Name Locked
did finally come over to assist me and brought my father into the funeral home. Before I went into the building I noticed the staff began lining the cars up for the procession. I spoke to one of the staff members and told him that my car should go behind my sister's because I had the grandparents. I also told the staff that my brother's car should be next in line - I needed his help with both of our parents and my
Southport Funeral Homes Provider Name Locked
was living with my brother, while he was going to college. I expected my instructions to have been carried out, only to discover that my car had been moved but my brother's car was new the end of the procession. Once we arrived at the church my car was parked on a slight incline, so it was extremely difficult helping my 90 year old father out of the car and into the wheelchair. This task was left to me until a friend of my
Southport Funeral Homes Provider Name Locked
's came to help - once that happened one of the
Southport Funeral Homes Provider Name Locked
staff came to assist. Once my father was in the wheelchair the staff member said "how do we get him over the
Southport Funeral Homes Provider Name Locked
" to which I snapped they had had 3 days to figure that out. The staff was looking around for someone to push my father up the ramp and into the church - again this was not done by the
Southport Funeral Homes Provider Name Locked
staff but my sister's
Southport Funeral Homes Provider Name Locked
. While we are trying to get my father into the church the funeral procession was already in the church - they did not wait for my
Southport Funeral Homes Provider Name Locked
's grandparents. Once in the church my parents, brother and I were seated behind the pallbearer and not with the family! My mother was extremely upset she was not seated behind her daughter with the family. Existing the church was no better. The staff did not assist with my father, my brother and cousin helped him to the car.

I would highly recommend the
Southport Funeral Homes Provider Name Locked
in Apex,
and would not hesitate to use them again if faced again with the death of a
loved one. They are a family-run business that understands family and has a sterling,
old-fashioned work ethic and business integrity. Their rates are reasonable,
and they provide you with an up-front list, which made us more comfortable that
there wouldn’t be any unpleasant surprises later. They were extremely kind and caring
in our time of grief. They were especially attentive to my mother, who was
devastated by the loss of our father after over 50 years of marriage. They
patiently helped us with all the things we needed to take care of. Although
they didn’t actually give us any grief counseling, they were so caring and
understanding that, at times, I almost felt like they were professional grief
counselors. They also did things to help
out with the mountain of things to take care of after a death, such as home-delivering
documents to us so as to spare us the trouble of picking them up. I cannot say enough good things. God bless
them.

His death occurred while visiting out of state in Bradenton, Florida. Because it was unexpected (massive heart attack), his body was taken to the County Medical Examiner's office. When the Medical Examiner's office notified me, I was at a loss as to what to do. I Googled the crematories in the area in an effort to comply with my husband's wishes for same. There were too many choices.
THEN I remembered ANGIE'S LIST. Being a member, I called them and they verified
Southport Funeral Homes Provider Name Locked
as having EXCELLENT reviews. When I had to call the Medical Examiner back with a FAX number for her to send forms to me, the subject of my "funeral plans" came up and I told her I was leaning toward
Southport Funeral Homes Provider Name Locked
from what I had read on their website and the ANGIE'S LIST verification of their status.
She said "Oh, they're a great choice, nice people...we have good experience with THEM".
I decided then and there. IT was all handled by phone. They are a small family operation who pick up and transport the remains and perform the cremation and, if you wish, ship the remains Express overnight US Mail to your door.
I spoke with them several times during the process of arrangements. They are sensitive and answer any stupid or indelicate question you throw at them. I had many, the worst being in the end, "How can I not be tormented the rest of my life wondering if I got the right ashes?" A very spiritual sensitive man/partner named
Southport Funeral Homes Provider Name Locked
explained that he was the one who actually cremated my husband. <---- This is why I didn't want to chose a large crematory or funeral home. Nothing I say will make this easier on you, especially not the part where the
Southport Funeral Homes Provider Name Locked
comes and then you sit all day crying...and thinking... with your loved one reduced to ten pounds of ashes in a box on your lap. The experience is made as painless as possible by
