“ For a business that is used to dealing with a very sensitive issue and hard time, I was floored by the lack of compassion that we experienced with Downing and Lahey - East. When we made arrangements for my father, who's death was sudden, everything went smoothly the first day. Three family members attended and signed papers etc. The next day, we were treated VERY poorly. We misunderstood some of the information we received the previous day - BECAUSE THIS ISN'T SOMETHING WE DEAL WITH EVERYDAY - and when we were confused by the process (interesting that all 3 of us missed the information from the previous day - my guess is IT WASN'T CLEAR), he acted as if we were completely putting him out by misunderstanding. "I told you yesterday...I already told your mother that. I explained that yesterday." Yeah well, could you please remind us - we are reeling. I was absolutely shocked by his insensitivity and how rude he was to our family. In an industry that should put COMPASSION FOR THE LIVING first with everything they are doing, it was a terrible experience for such a terrible situation. My entire family was upset by the way this was handled. I suggest finding a different mortuary to deal should you have to put someone to rest. ”
