  • 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 ------ --------

  • My father passed away suddenly in November of 2015 and I cannot thank everyone at your facility for the sensitivity, compassion and professionalism. You all helped our family through an awful time and reminded us of other important details that we needed to address due to my father's passing with such compassion. My friends father passed away recently and I could not believe how many detail's they had to do by themselves while we were fortunate that you took charge and guided us through. thank you again

  • Hi Shawn, Since I didn't get to see you I just wanted to thank you for taking such good care of us. Everything turned out perfectly thanks to Marianne who got us started selecting cards while we were waiting for Chris to get back from Calverton- so glad we chose Sweet Hollow! Chris was just amazing so professional yet so caring, from our first meeting to the rose on my doorstep to the poem he read it was just perfect. Henry was great too at the wake, driving & even helping me put flowers on our parents graves, you have to be very proud of your staff. I had so many people say how special it was James certainly had a great send off. God bless you all, -----

  • Dear Chris, Words cannot express my gratitude to you for everything you did for me and my family during the difficult time. We walked into Jacobsen's feeling upset and worried about making all the decisions we needed to make. Your calm voice and soothing way put us at ease. You walked us through the whole process listening and hearing everything we had to say. Your understanding and knowledge helped us to make educated decisions. When we left you we knew we were in good hands and that all our wishes would be carried out. Everyone was pleased with the video you and your staff created for us. It is a cherished memory of our happy times with ------. May god bless you always. ------- and family
