A woman called me today and asked me to post this on my webpage. She said that before her father died she called around to several places to get prices since they had limited funds. Our price was the lowest she found. But before she could even think about it, Lakeview Funeral Home,A new black funeral home, was calling her back with promises to beat our prices. She said she would have to speak with other family members and call her back and hung up. 5 minutes later the phone rang again with more promises. the lady called her back at least 5 times. They finally let the funeral home pick up her dad. The funeral home then said they were sending a limo to pick up the family. After arriving at the funeral home they were put in a room and a sales pitch started. That cheap price they were told went out the window. It was plus this and plus that and “of course you want” all kind of things that ran the bill up to almost 3 times what they wanted. BUT they couldn’t get up and leave because they didn’t come in their car. They were stuck there for over 5 hours before someone would take them home.
Bottom line was they were expecting something a lot different than what they got. A big place has a big overhead and when they only do 3-4 services a month you get to pay the bills.
