Maggard Brothers Funeral Home ( so dis-respectful )

I was visiting my loved ones graves on saturday to decorate at Resthaven Cemetery and these guys came up to dig a grave I assume and set a tent almost right in the middle of the road and layed a blue vault right outside next to the road. Now I really think this is disrespectful to the families who want to decorate and visit one time a year to even have to see this let alone the parking anyway. This would never take place away from here.I have contacted the owner and he said he asked them not to even set the tent til monday morning and they told him they probably wouldnt even set one.

Grave diggers are not employees of the funeral home, they are contracted. You couldn't ask for a better set of people to take care of you loved ones than Maggards.

you are right you could not ask for a better people than maggards they took care of my husband and they had respect for the other family members and like they said if you visited once a year there is something wrong with you. so leave maggards along they are good people.and they have respect for the others graves around there to .

Sorry to say, but when a grave is dug, they have to pile the durt some place. It is common practace to pile the dirt to the nearest point, yes it is sometimes pilled on another grave, but rest asured when the grave is filled back in, the dirt is cleaned the best they can from the grave where they had to pile it. As someone pointed out, people die every day and they have funerals when the family of the deceased set them. Maggard's funeral home is one of the most respectful Funeral Homes, you will find. You visited your loved one's resting place, but if you would have taken the flowers to the funeral home and ask them to put a note on them and deliver them to your loved one's grave on the day of the burial of the one who they were digging a grave for, I'll bet they would have done it. That is just the way they are.

You are being ridiculous. People die and graves must be dug even on holidays. The dirt has to be put somewhere. You are being disrespectful to the family of the newly deceased.

My Father is buried at Resthaven and I was there Saturday and Maggards did have a tent set in the usual place on the level where Family and Friends can gather and there was a vault setting there also but I did not think second thoughts about it. There is a burial there 2 or three times a week sometimes and is not unusual for a tent to be set. Maybe You would like to donate so a shelter can be permantly build on site and I hope You took You trash back to whereever instead of throwing it down beside road at cementary as some do. People die everyday and the gravediggers have to work on hollidays as do the funeral homes. The cementary looked great. Thanks Kenneth Hall for a good job.
