My sister passed suddenly due to a automobile accident. We have never planned for a funeral. We started calling around and we met with three funeral homes. The first was very nice, but tried selling us a $8,300 funeral package. We didn't have that kind of money. She still has young children we need to care for. We then visited another funeral home. The funeral director was pushy, it felt like a car salesmen. They did offer a package for $5,700, but my mother and I did not like their aggressive sales techniques. It was more about the money than my sister and our family. A friend heard about my sisters death and recommended Claire Brothers funeral home. We called to set an appointment, and the owner Riley Smith said he would come meet us in our home. This was not offered by the previous two. Mr. Smith met us in our home later that evening, he was quite the opposite of the pushy director from the other funeral home. He asked us what we wanted, instead of telling us what he wanted to sell us. He then gave us options within our price range that worked for us. The service was all that we expected and more. We had flowers, a very nice casket, use of the chapel, a hearse, obituary, a beautiful graveside ceremony. We had everything we wanted for less than 60% of what other funeral homes wanted to charge. If you didn't know, you would have thought we had the deluxe $8,000 package from the first funeral home. At the cemetery, we even had a touching white dove release that was beautiful and helped bring closure for my parents and family. If you have money to throw away. Go see the other guys. If you are looking for a caring, touching and professional service for your loved one for a very reasonable cost, Call Claire Brothers Funeral Home.
Pros: Caring, Affordable, Professional
Cons: Chapel could be bigger. We had 250+ people, but we didn't expect that many people either. It was a good problem to know she was loved.
