I am sorely disappointed with the service that I received from this company. The way that we were herded around like cattle was unprofessional and harshly inconsiderate. I don't know if the team had something else planned for that day or what, but that is NOT the problem of the family that you are servicing at the time. Funerals are a time when people whom have not seen eachother in years come together to fellowship. Emotions are high and people are extra sensitive. It was VERY inconsiderate for the team to be yelling (loudly and rudely) at the grieving family to "hurry up". You made that day a little harder to handle with those mannerisms.
