A brother of mine recommended Pridgen Funeral Home in Lanham, MD because of their handling of his mother-in-law's Homegoing Service. In my 20+ years of dealing with lost of loved ones in dealing with their setting up their services was never easy but when you come to Pridgen Funeral Home I guarantee you that you will be in great hands of professionalism and humility and compassion in planning of your loved one's services. After 4 years of caring for my brother, Andrew, his passing was a relief for our family knowing he decided 6-days prior to his passing how he wanted to discontinue life support and then to plan his Homegoing was a plan his son and I had to secure for his dad to receive the best funeral services to fulfill his wishes and standard of living. Andrew's son, my nephew, and I interviewed 2 other funeral homes prior to calling Pridgen and within an hour of our call we met with Tuawana Braxton, Director of Pridgen Funeral Home. When my nephew and I arrived to Pridgen Funeral Home I we were impressed with the decor and set a confident setting of professionalism for our 3rd meeting of the day. Planning with Tuawana 2-days prior to Andrew's passing made everything clear with pricing from the green casket which is Andrew's favorite color and car services and his program and other outside services were priced and easy to understand and given slowly without pressure or skipping details of inquiries my nephew and I had during our 1-hour meeting. Two days after our meeting I called Tuawana at 2:30 am and she answered my call with full attention to who I was and how she kept me calm with her expression of compassion for the lost of our loved one. The Pridgen Funeral Home Services were the best experience I've ever experienced. This is where I will have my services handled and you will be well pleased to be in the best hands for handling your loved one's services as well as your own service planning.
My wife lost her Father in 2017 and the lost her Mother in 2018. They took care of all the funeral details and everything was perfect. They made us feel like family and not just like a client. Keep up the good work. The Johnson family
I was very happy that my family and I selected Pridgen to care for our deceased loved one.It was just by chance I saw this funeral home in my daily travels when they moved into the neighborhood,so I decided to call them when my aunt died.I can honestly say that I haven't regretted making that call.We found Tuawana to be very personable and competent and she was instrumental in ensuring the smooth transition of our late family member.She explained all our options and exercised patience while we came to grips with our loss and made our decisions.She has been placed in the service field where her expertise and compassion is beneficial to grieving families.Thank you for making our first personal experience with loss a pleasant and memorable one.
Tuawana, is AWESOME, losing our Mom was HARD!!!!!
Tuawana and her staff made our Mom (Lula Henson's) home going service Beautiful!!!
My Mom looked so peaceful and beautiful, looked like the angel she is. To top it off she smelled great.
There are many funeral services to choose from in our area, God led me to an ad on our church bulletin: Pridgen Funeral Service, “Gentle as a feather…Strong in service.” Absolutely!! Mrs. Tuawana Pridgen gently cared for and guided our family through the most difficult week of our life with grace, professionalism, efficiency and love. There was nothing she would not do to lessen our burden, to comfort us and to provide the strong service we needed for the final earthly journey of our loved one, the Honorable William D. Missouri. She constantly reminded us, “I can do that for you.” The arrangements were impeccable. The professionalism of the entire staff was evident and appreciated. We received many compliments on Mrs. Pridgen and we highly recommend Pridgen Funeral Service when the sad, but necessary need arrives.
Pridgen Funeral Services was very professional and treated us like family. They handled the home going service for our mother with loving care, as if they knew her their entire lives. Tuawana, was so kind and professional and went above & beyond to give us the best service possible and she will always be considered as apart of our family. And we would recommend their services to everyone. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
We are always interested in hearing from the families that we serve. Please take a moment to let us know how well we served you in your time of need. We very much appreciate your feedback.
