I would highly recommend the
Merrick 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
Merrick 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
Merrick 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
Merrick 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
Merrick 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
Merrick Funeral Homes Provider Name Locked
and
Merrick Funeral Homes Provider Name Locked
of
Merrick Funeral Homes Provider Name Locked

I can't say enough about what a favorable experience we had at
Merrick Funeral Homes Provider Name Locked
. My brother died suddenly.
Merrick Funeral Homes Provider Name Locked
Trolia and his son walked us through every element of the preparations with dignity and genuine compassion. They were extremely responsive and even helped us manage a difficult family situation. Their pricing is competitive with their chain counterparts and they offer a full range of services without a bit of pressure sales tactics. Skip the chains, this family owned business is an exceptional value and a real comfort during a difficult time.

The entire experience with
Merrick Funeral Homes Provider Name Locked
was horrible. We contacted Sunrise because they advertise as a non profit and because their location in
Merrick Funeral Homes Provider Name Locked
was close to Snohomish County Medical Examiner. We live in Seattle and
Merrick Funeral Homes Provider Name Locked
offered to come to our home to make the arrangements. We initially thought this was very nice. Mr.
Merrick Funeral Homes Provider Name Locked
arrived on time but wasn't prepared with prices, pictures of urns and didn't even know the sales tax in Seattle. While filling out the forms to arrange for sister's cremation, I had to look up sales tax and the Sunrise website to look at the pictures of urns on my laptop.This was very disturbing and it should have been the red flag to ask him to leave. It was a very stressful time for me so I continued to fill out the paperwork and choose an urn. During this time Mr.
Merrick Funeral Homes Provider Name Locked
would say"don't worry about this part of the form the girl in the office will complete them." He said he would make copies of the forms and mail them to me. Second red flag! I made copies myself but haven't received the copies of the forms he promised. As he left he said cheerfully "what are you doing to celebrate the 4th of
Merrick Funeral Homes Provider Name Locked
?" Then said "oh sorry I guess I didn't think that through." He then proceeded to tell me how he was celebrating! Totally unaware of how inappropriate he was. Third red flag! When I got the call that the ashes were ready to be picked up the woman was rude and inappropriate as well. Fourth red flag! Another sister and I went to pick up the urn and box of remaining ashes for a future celebration of our youngest sister's life. The office looked like an "ambulance chaser's "office with cheap vinyl banners. No wonder he offered to come to my house! There was no one at the front desk , someone yells out "be right there". Fifth red flag! I tell Mr.
Merrick Funeral Homes Provider Name Locked
my name and that we were there to pick up my sister's ashes. He comes back with the box. When asked where's the urn I paid you for, he said "stay here I'll be right back." He went into an office not 10 feet away from where we were standing. We could hear him opening the box! He came out of the room with a velvet box with the heart shaped urn inside and the original box. The original box wasn't closed completely and when I commented on this he said" what do you want me to do scotch tape it." I told him this whole experience was very unprofessional and he became indignant. When we got to our car, both of us were very upset. My sister opened the velvet box, picked up the urn and ashes are leaking out it into the velvet box because Mr.
Merrick Funeral Homes Provider Name Locked
hasn't properly sealed it. I was contacted by
Merrick Funeral Homes Provider Name Locked
from the office regarding the death certificates for "my mother". When I corrected her that they were for my sister, she said "oh my bad!" Bad doesn't even describe this entire experience. Words can't express how inappropriate and unprofessional the entire process was during what was already a very difficult time. My sister deserved more dignity. I have been told by departments that were involved in the process that they have had many complaints about
Merrick Funeral Homes Provider Name Locked
. After all of this we find out the cremation wasn't even preformed in
Merrick Funeral Homes Provider Name Locked
but in
Merrick Funeral Homes Provider Name Locked
! I have filed a complaint with
Merrick Funeral Homes Provider Name Locked
State Dept of Licensing for Funeral Directors. I can only hope that no one else has to go through this kind of treatment.

We worked with an inexperienced person, Laonardo. I think things would have been smoother if he had been better trained. There were miscommunications over the obituary and the food. Other than that, it went extremely well. The funeral director straightened things out although I still believe there were overcharges and misunderstandings on the obituary. The facilities are beautiful. I have purchased a prepaid buriel for my mom and
Merrick Funeral Homes Provider Name Locked
, and am glad that I did, because I believe they have such beautiful facilities to hold the memorial.
Merrick Funeral Homes Provider Name Locked
's actual memorial could not have been nicer, because the funeral director made sure that everything went smoothly after I voiced my concerns about the misunderstandings of the food and obituary.

My beautiful Becca died at 3:00am on the 3rd of
Merrick Funeral Homes Provider Name Locked
. I phoned
Merrick Funeral Homes Provider Name Locked
at 3:30am and the answering service was very understanding and put me right through to
Merrick Funeral Homes Provider Name Locked
.
Merrick Funeral Homes Provider Name Locked
expressed her sincere condolences and was most helpful guiding me through the process of having Becca picked up as soon as possible. By 6:45am a gentleman, dressed in suit and tie, arrived and lovingly took Becca.
Merrick Funeral Homes Provider Name Locked
personnel contacted me several times between the time of Becca's death and the time that her ashes were ready for pickup just to be sure I was doing okay. Everyone was thoughtful, helpful, kind, and treated Becca as a member of the family, just as she had been to me for 14 years.
When I went to pick up Becca's ashes, I received a beautiful urn covered in paw prints and a touching verse on the top. Also, there was a personal, handwritten sympathy card and a sandstone keepsake plaque with Becca's paw print inked on it, along with her name. The plaque was wrapped in tissue with a paw prints ribbon tying it. Small touches to make me know they had treated my Becca with dignity and respect for the time they had her, and returned her to me in the most caring way possible.

This was, and is, still a hard subject to revisit.
My husband,
Merrick Funeral Homes Provider Name Locked
, died on May 19, 2014 and because of hang-ups with the VA the burial took a long time.
On June 2, we had a service in the mortuary and on June 3, my husband was buried in the National Cemetery on Cave Creek Road, in
Merrick Funeral Homes Provider Name Locked
.
Merrick Funeral Homes Provider Name Locked
, the Owner/Mortician, is so knowledgeable when it comes to going through the hoops of the VA. Really, I do not know what we would have done without him.
The room where the Service was held is really a first class room. Everything that we needed was given, sometimes before we knew we needed it.
If you would like to see what the
Merrick Funeral Homes Provider Name Locked
looks like they have an engaging Website. You can even look up my husband's Obituary to see just what all they do and what their Mortuary looks like.
Would I use
Merrick Funeral Homes Provider Name Locked
again??? This may sound a bit weird, but I will be using this facility for myself.

Merrick Funeral Homes Provider Name Locked
has done work for me on several occasions in the past year. The quality of his work has been excellent every time. He does each job better than I expect every single time. He is on time every time, and even calls several days in advance to confirm that he will be there - very unusual for service providers and very reassuring. I highly recommend
