I was very satisfied with the knowledge of Jeff Barbour and his direction throughout the planning of my momma's funeral. He was very kind and helpful threw the planning and even after the funeral. I can't think of anything I would have changed. Jeff went out of his way to make a sad experience as uplifting as could be."

We want to give our special thanks to Katie for an incredible sensitive handling of our son & daughter-in-law's beloved lab, "Izzy." We all feared the time when you say goodbye to a wonderful pet, and Katie, with her wonderful kindness & professionalism, made everything peaceful and full of understanding. Our family is very grateful to you all. Sincerely, Steve & Suzy Hannon

The entire staff was very compassionate and very professional. They understood our grief and we were treated as family with the utmost respect and dignity. Billy McLean was exceptional in handling everything for us, even details that we had not thought of.

One of the best in the market. In my opinion, you cannot beat this funeral home for handling your precious loved one! The director, Paul English, went out of his way to assure all details were taken care of.

We were returning to Pittsburgh for a funeral, so out of state paperwork was a necessity. The staff members were very knowledgeable of handling all paperwork. They are very courteous staff and have shown their kindness throughout the year.

McLean's went above and beyond! I don't know what I would have done without Rhonda and the entire staff. You know walking in that you have nothing to worry about--that means more than anything. You know they really care."

I could not have been happier with the service we received during such a difficult time. Don was our funeral director and he was so professional and caring to all our friends and family. I personally know several people that work there and they are all very compassionate people.

The funeral home does excellent work. The staff is outstanding and could not have been more helpful. The ceremony was very dignified and respectful. Their support, kindness, and compassion was most meaningful to me.

I just wanted to send you a quick email to let you know how wonderful I think your flower services are. Recently my boss had a death in his family, and I ordered the flowers from our staff as well as from my personal household through your website.I found the process so easy to understand and walk through. Not only was the online ordering easy, but I was told that the flowers we ordered through your flowers services were the most attractive ones sent. I just wanted to thank you for offering such a great service! Thanks!

My family and I have continued to tell everyone how beautifully you all took care of us during this time and continue to do so. We were not able to attend the reception at Christmas time but we do appreciate the beautiful angel ornament you mailed to us. The books on grief which Rev. Lawing has sent have laso been appreciated. I have passed them on to my sister who is dealing with the loss of her husband. All of these expressions of thoughtfulness are why we tell people that McLean's is not a business; it is a service. We are forever grateful. Thank you.

McLean Funeral Directors Client

My family wanted me to let you and your family know how very much we have appreciated the DVD you made of our Mother's service. All of the family members who were not able to attend have now been able to see it. When our sister who was not able to attend because of her husband's illness and death was able to come up for a visit the brother and sisters were able to view it with her. We were all blessed by being able to share the service with her. During the Christmas holidays my brother and his wife were able to take it to Texas and share it with their children there. They said it was a wonderful experience for them. The quality was very good and was a wonderful addition to memories. Thank you for doing that for us. It was a wonderful surprise.
