I REALIZE ALL THESE PEOPLE HAVE FAMILIES AND THINGS TO DO BUT THEY ARE TAKING CARE OF ALL OF US HERE. THANK YOU AND GOD BLESS.
Valhalla Funeral Home----ill start out by saying this funeral home runs a scam! they sell ppl immediate burials under the impression that they are getting a prepaid burial policy then after their loved one passes they tell the grieving family that their loved ones policy does not include fees for viewing,chapel service or graveside because they purchased an immediate burial, I have also heard now of several others whom have had bad experiances as well,they are not accredited with the BBB . Our experience with this funeral home was terrible, My dad paid over $7000.00 for a burial policy,well after being diagnosed with stage 4 scc cancer he did what my dad did,took extra precautions to make sure things were handled before he passed away. He went back to Valhalla Funeral home with paper work in hand to double check all his forms which were supposed to be paid in full and in blue ink was written in full (top left corner of form } well the person in charge says "sir this is only 1/2 of a policy we will need $7000.00 more for a full policy so my dad pulls out his wallet and pays more, he financed a small portion. My dad passed away from this horrible disease and fought a hard battle. Now my mom & I go to the funeral home to take care of the arrangments for dad. I told them my pastor would be there to minister dads service,and his best friend would like to play acoustically during his service and a few friends would like to say a few words. Well the funeral home administrator said there can't be a viewing,service or graveside service. I ask "WHY?' He said your dad has paid for an immediate burial,so I look at the paper work & ask then why did he get charged for a hearse,makeup,dressing, embalmbing ,& an 18 guage very expensive coffin for no visitors or service for friends and family. He proceeds to tell me that for around $1400.00 more we could have those services then says we sell full service packages for around &4500.00. Now mind you dad has already paid over $12000.00 for an immediate burial that he was mislead about.I felt as though I was dealing with a car salesman during our grief,also I ask if I could play a slide show & was told both large screen tvs were stolen I would have to provide my own,so that I did and made my on slide show.I could say much more but have gone about over 2000 letters.It was a complete sham!
