  • Dear Chris, Marianne and staff, We wish to thank you for making a very difficult time less painful. The viewing was so dignified, befitting our Domenick. The way everything came together in such a short time-the viewing, the video, photo display, arrangements for the mass transportation, etc., was all first class. Even our friends were impressed. Thank you again. Sincerly, -------, -------, and family

  • Dear Chris, Back in March, my sister ----- very suddenly passed away and you as well as your staff were given the task of insuring that my sisters wake and subsequent funeral were handled professionally. You certainly did that without question and extended to my family professional courtesy far above what we could ask for. My only regret is that it has taken me all of this time to acknowledge in writing my appreciation to you for a job well done. You and I as former and now retired FDNY members were trained to a high standard of saving people and we sort of get use to that. But, when death becomes a personal matter like my sister, it is never easy to accept that she is no longer around to smile and join us at family functions! Please accept this letter as my sincere thanks for making my sisters funeral a fond memory recognizing you and Your staff as the professionals you all are. Be well my brother and again thank you. Sincerely, ----- -------

  • Dear Chris (and Henry) I wanted to formally thank you for all of your help with my father's cremation and memorial service particularly the "unique request" that you all handled so beautifully. Your willingness to match my sense of humor about the bizaritty was much appreciated. Also, I want to thank you for bringing my grandfather's cremains to Calverton- that was an incredibly kind act and I am grateful he is finally with his wife of 50 plus years. Thank you so much ------ --------
