He was respectful and polite and most of all efficient, this experience was made so much easier because of his help and professionalism. The staff was most helpful especially Kermit the dog! Thank you so much for making our experience a pleasant one.

    • My father passed away just about a month ago. From the very first phone call to Robert to the day I picked up his remains he and the staff at Affordable Burial and Cremation were absolutely wonderful. Thank you all for everything!

    • So happy that we chose Affordable Burial and Cremation Service for our deceased loved one. Our hospice company set us on a wonderful path when they told us about this option. Everything was handled smoothly from the time of body retrieval from our home to the time that I was able to obtain cremains and death certificates. Thanks to Robert and his entire staff for their caring and competence at this sensitive time for us.

      Clarke Family, November 18, 2015

    • My family used Affordable Burial & Cremation for our father's service and our mother's service which were just one month apart. Both services were perfect for what our family wanted and very reasonably priced. We were able to select what we wanted and opt out of what we didn't want and without any pressure. Mr. Falcon, the owner, is even going out of his way to help me get my mother's death certificate amended. His staff - both administrative and in the field (like the people who picked up our parents after their passing) - are very caring and courteous. We also had pre-need contracts through Cliff Hall, a gentleman Mr. Falcon introduced us to. I cannot say enough nice things about Mr. Hall's professionalism, kindness, and courtesy. He was exceptional. I recommend using Affordable Burial & Cremation if you want reasonably priced services and attention to detail regarding each family's unique needs or beliefs. I would use this company again as well as the pre-need services offered by Mr. Hall.

    • Two years ago when my mother passed on i was very satisfied with their price. also their genuine kindness. robert and i associated over the phone {my choice} and on line i never had to go into his office. the gentleman who picked up my mothers body from the nursing home had great sympathy for us. we followed him to his car. when he was done before he left he gave each of us the biggest hugs and took his time talking to us. when he delivered my moms ashes i wasn't at my sisters but when he got off the car my sister started crying and he gave her a beautiful hug we both appreciated his love and kindness.that meant so much to us ,to this day i still remember those moments with the their staff. i too will make arrangement through them again for myself. .so thank you robert for your services.your a+

    • On behalf of my son and myself, we could not be more satisfied with the service provided us at this most devastating period of our lives. You were kind, efficient, professional and to my great wonder, you did not try to pressure us in a financial burden that we could not have afforded. We understand cremation and funerals have a business component, which can, at times, be intimidating - especially when one is in grief. Your service at no time tried to talk us into something that was not in our wishes and more importantly, were not the wishes of the deceased. I admire that greatly. We enjoyed that you are a small family business and that allowed us to get to know Tisha and Robert and we weren't shuttled through phone message machines. Our calls were promptly returned and all questions were answered with the greatest respect for our loved one. We will always look back on this experience working with you as a positive time in so much as it was such a grievous time. Thanks

      Roberts Family, December 22, 2014

    • I want to say thanks to Mr. Falcon and his staff for helping my friends and I through a very tough time. At the very unexpected passing of their 6 week old son, my friends were, of course, devastated and I took over much of the planning for the service. Upon initial contact, Mr. Falcon was much more helpful than other providers I had contacted who were recommended by the social workers who came to support the family. I got up-front, straight forward information right from the start and at no time did they try to up-sell us on anything. The parents are simple people and wanted to keep this as simple and as natural as possible...returning their little boy's ashes to the ground to feed the growth of a memorial tree they planted in his honor. We got exactly that and they went really out of their way to help us expedite the cremation to fit in with the schedule we had set for the memorial service, not realizing the bureaucratic hoops we had to jump through to get the process completed. An incredibly tough time was made as smooth as possible by their help, compassion, availability, and professionalism. Thanks for making a difficult process a little less difficult.

      Pair Family, April 01, 2014

    • My appreciation for Robert Falcon and his staff at Affordable Burial & Cremation Service. Making final arrangements for my mother was an unwelcomed necessity for me. Robert handled my situation with professionalism and respect while maintaining the dignity and the privacy my mother deserved. Robert delivered his vast knowledge and experience with a direct yet compassionate approach, detailing each process, which enabled me to decide how best to honor my mother’s wishes. Both Robert and Jesse answered my every question patiently. Their prompt feedback and follow up set my mind at ease and let me know this was one less thing I had to worry about. The company also offered online grief support delivered via email. These daily affirmations have become part of my daily ritual of transforming my grief. Rather than being treated as “just another customer”, I was treated as a friend. Thank you Robert for helping me at a most difficult time.

    • Affordable Burial & Cremation Service did an excellent job handling all the details we had concerning the funeral and burial of my father. Robert Falcon tried to make it a smooth and gentle time for my sister and I in planning. When we ran into some trouble with the burial part of the service, Robert stepped in and succeeded in placating the burial company even though that was not the original agreement. Robert is a very honest and up front man. He will guide you and tell you about all your choices in planning. He does leave all the decision-making up to you. It is nice to know that you are making informed decisions. I recommend that you contact Robert first before you contact any other funeral or cemetery director. It could save you trouble and extra money. Using Affordable's building for the viewing of my dad was a perfect plan. Two hours worked well, and there was a nice flow of people in and out. It was a more intimate setting than other places would be. I would recommend this family owned business for many reasons - it is family owned and their reputation is important to them, they are honest, they are definitely affordable, they are professional, and they are available whenever you need them. I am very grateful to them for what they did for my father and my family during our time of need! Thank you Robert and Affordable Burial & Cremation Service!
