"Contrary to another review I recently read on your site,
helped us during a very difficult time recently through the loss of a loved one" in
2015.
Root and her team were exceedingly professional, compassionate, and took their time to answer all of our questions. Not once did we feel any pressure to add or upgrade services etc. They helped us locate just what we wanted from the casket to special family only calling hour arrangements. They were patient in explaining our options and listened intently to our wants. Their attention to detail and follow thru was impeccable. During such a difficult time, it's important that our family was focused on just getting through the event and being with our loved ones. I never one had to think of all that was going on in the background. They were precise in their directions to us during all aspects of the funeral and burial. Having grown up in Brockport, I can personally attest that the new owners did, and I'm sure will continue to - bring a heightened level of professionalism and service to Brockport residents and the surrounding communities. Thank you, The Redings

"I spoke with them to get prices for cremation. I have a very old dog who is not in good health and we know the end is near. we do not want our pet put in a plastic" bag and thrown in a hole in the ground. They talked to me about the prices and how I should contact them when the time comes. The person I spoke to was very supportive and comforting. We will definitely use them when it is time for our precious baby to go.

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.

Don't become a victim of fraud when you're at your most vulnerable.

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)

When you experience loss, it is important to be able to process grief in your own way. Here are five steps to help discover what your process is.

Experiencing a death in the family causes emotional turmoil, and planning that loved one’s funeral may add even more anxiety. Knowing what to expect upfront can prevent you from paying too much during an already stressful time.

It could not have gone any better. He provided cremation services, ordered a beautiful urn using the custom design I sent him, ordered flowers, made arrangements for the dove release, and sent her cremains to her final resting place in another state.

was very professional throughout and NEVER said there was something he couldn't do. This is the second time we've used Heritage, and if I ever need another service like this in

Overall it went very well. Mom and Dad prearranged their caskets and plot several decades ago. So I had to arrange and pay for the rest. Based on Mom's wishes, we selected burial without funeral home service, but with a graveside service. The small chapel was prepared for the service when we got there, and they even had a small cooler of cold bottled water available, as it was a warm day. The staff stood by and did not become impatient or try to hurry our service for Mom. Upon completion, they carefully and respectfully moved her casket to graveside for internment. Upon completion, the site was soon restored with sod to original condition.
With transfers and preparation and director fees it totaled $3080. Opening and closing ran about $1400. They also arranged for a local pastor to conduct the graveside services for a $200 fee plus death certificates for $10 each.
Our director,

My father contacted
Akron Funeral Homes Provider Name Locked
in the 1990s to pre-plan (and pre-pay) his funeral. He decided to make his arrangements after my mother had to make and pay for last minute funeral arrangements when my grandfather passed away. At the time, he found the
Akron Funeral Homes Provider Name Locked
staff to be very helpful with the pre-planning process. When my father passed away in June 2015, I contacted
Akron Funeral Homes Provider Name Locked
to execute on my father's funeral plan. The company was very responsive and friendly. They responded quickly to my phone inquiry on Sunday afternoon. When my sister and I went to meet with them the next day, they had all of my father's plans ready for us to review. They executed on my father's plan without issue. Even though my father had extensive facial damage (due to mouth cancer), the mortician was able to make him look like he did pre-illness. When my father was laid to rest, he looked very peaceful. The funeral coordinator,
Akron Funeral Homes Provider Name Locked
, was very helpful. Due to family mobility concerns,
Akron Funeral Homes Provider Name Locked
recommended that the services be held at the R.J.
Akron Funeral Homes Provider Name Locked
facility (which is part of the same company). He also coordinated with the cemetery and church for us. He also made some restaurant recommendations for the post-funeral lunch. All of his recommendations were good. As I noted, my father had pre-paid for his funeral expenses. There were no last minute surprises or unforeseen expenses. Although it is never easy to

a loved one,

(R. J.

our first contact with

and
Akron Funeral Homes Provider Name Locked
, we felt so good about their professionalism and sincerity. They were just great. They explained everything and gave us options. They did not try to "sell" us on spending more... in fact, they pointed out ways to save money. The service in their chapel was lovely and we got a lot of positive feedback on it. Their facilities are so nice and the private rooms were perfect. Also, they have a big room for a reception after the service. I would definitely recommend using them to anyone! Thank you

I was referred to The
Akron Funeral Homes Provider Name Locked
by a good friend who had used his cremation services for both her father and father-in-law, so she spoke highly of his services. This is my second time using The
Akron Funeral Homes Provider Name Locked
Services. First time was October 2011 after the death of my father. Since my mother had passed earlier there no spouse to sign the papers, so all of my siblings and I had to sign in agreement on the cremation. One sister held out on signing for nearly a month. Mr.
Akron Funeral Homes Provider Name Locked
went out of his way to persuade and accommodate my sister, even to the point of driving from Oveido to Port Orange 'several' times. He didn't charge extra due to the long delay or aggravation and kept me updated each step of the process.
My husband had seen the professionalism while we went through the drama surrounding my Dad's cremation and said he would want Mr.
Akron Funeral Homes Provider Name Locked
to handle his cremation when the time came. In April of this year (2015) my husband passed away suddenly. Once again, Mr.
Akron Funeral Homes Provider Name Locked
and his staff went out of their way to be courteous, professional and respectable. He kept me updated on each step, from the cause of death determination to filing the death certificate and notifying social security to the date and time of cremation. He then personally delivered my husband's urn to my home, and spent probably 30 minutes comforting and consoling me during this difficult time. He knew that losing my husband was a far greater pain than losing my dad at hospice.
I've made it known that when my time comes, those in charge are to call The
Akron Funeral Homes Provider Name Locked
for 'three-
Akron Funeral Homes Provider Name Locked
' service. His prices for cremation and urns are far less than those here in Volusia County. From what I understand, he handles cremations from all over the state as well as some from out of state, so that should say something.

What a horrible experience! Thank goodness we changed to a more professional funeral home. (
Akron Funeral Homes Provider Name Locked
from the MN
Akron Funeral Homes Provider Name Locked
demanded us to pay $400 before his body could be removed to another funeral home from their chapel. She actually mentioned this more than 5 times during our conversation.) We were told we had to pay everything up front and not wait for probate as well. When I questioned her on this she replied, "Most families have no problem paying this." How rude to insinuate that we are being cheap. We felt that we were being lectured and judged less than 24 hours after our loved one had died. There was no compassion. They do not understand our family's situation. During this awful, trying, time the last thing we want to deal with are rude, condescending people who are very unprofessional. What a headache! I have already let numerous friends and family know to never use their services.
