“I unfortunately miscarried my baby at 4 and a half months along. I was attended at the Oakland hospital and after having my baby removed from me I wanted to keep her ashes. I was recommended to this place by the hospital. In this sort of event I was very fortunate to have Ms.Faviola help me and my fiancé through this difficult process. She ALWAYS answered my phone calls and emails. She answered every question I had and always made me feel okay to ask anything I wanted. She helped us pick out a beautiful urn for my baby girl. She accommodated to all the requests I had as far as the transportation of my daughter, cremation process, and allowing my fiancé and I to put her ashes in the urn ourselves. It was just a intimate moment that my fiancé and I will remember forever thanks to her. I highly recommend Ms.Faviola’s services, such a great woman with a soft heart. Thank you!” –Alejandra G., Hercules, CA

My mother purchased a Neptune society contract years ago. I am trying to get her affairs in order for when the time comes. Naturally, I can’t find any trace of her contract or payment. After some fruitless e-mails I called the Oakland branch today and spoke with Carla. She couldn’t have been nicer. She found my mother’s contract number right away and gave me the address and phone number for the branch I need to call to update her contact information. A huge relief.

went to the office to get info, the lady at the front desk gave me a info packet and a contact number for further assistance. after getting a feel of the service, i called Leatta Poston and met with her. Ms Poston went thru the whole process with me and answered all my questions. she took her time and there was no pressure. if you are thinking about this service, call her.

Thanks Leatta for all you do!

Faviola was the best, From the begging to the completions of this services I was given all the information, care and respect that anyone could ask for. When going over the prearranged information and fee’s everything was laid out very clear and there was no hard sell tactics of any kind. Faviola scheduled and handled everything wonderfully, she contacted SS, order the number of death certifies I requested. schedule the boat at the time I needed it. ( The boat crew was also outstanding !) This was the first time I had to deal with this, and I learned so much. I find this to be a simple/beautiful way to deal with a death for any family member when anyone finds them self handling it from begging to end. From Donald E. Lafayete, CA

“This is specific to the Neptune Cremation Service in San Jose. Kudos to Brian Malcolm who walked us through the arrangements for my brother’s cremation in a sensitive, professional manner. We appreciated receiving the paperwork by email and found the information helpful. You sometimes hear about opportunistic funeral directors who prey on grieving families by up selling different elements of the burial process. This is not the way the Neptune Society works. Making these final arrangements was something we dreaded. We left Brian feeling entirely at peace, confident that my brother’s transition from this earth was in the best of hands.” –Sharon O., Fort Collins, CO

“I found myself distraught and needing the services of Neptune Society’s Oakland office. My mother was in the hospital and our family wanted to make sure we had some type of arrangements in place for her. From the moment Faviola answered the phone, I KNEW that everything regarding my mother’s arrangements were in more than capable hands. Faviola put me in touch with Leatta and oh boy! Leatta met us after hours to ensure that we were able to put a policy/contract in place for my mother. Leatta was very professional and meticulously went over all of the paperwork and answered every single question we had. Unfortunately, my mother passed away a short time after meeting with Leatta and Faviola. My subsequent meetings with them were just as kind and understanding as the first. I had the pleasure of meeting Carla (receptionist) who also was very kind and helpful. Now please understand that I am clearly aware that those who choose to work in this line of business are expected to be kind and polite, well let me tell you that it felt like they were family. From every single detail to every single question I knew that I could trust them – my gut feeling is always right.

I can’t even find the words of gratitude I have for this office. In a time where I was distraught, lost, unsure and doubtful; these ladies assured that although I was dealing with the loss of my mother, they would be there along the way to help me with whatever I needed. THEY WERE THERE!!!

Although my business is finished with them, I think that I will give the a call every now and then just to say Hi and Thank You.

I am a customer service professional and I can truly appreciate when I receive genuine care, respect and understand from anyone especially a business.

Keep doing what you do! I thank you, my family thanks you and I know my Mama is smiling down thanking you for helping her daughter send her home the way she wanted to.

Forever grateful!” –Tami W., Oakland, CA
