We receive many letters from the families we've served, thanking us for our caring ways during their time of loss. Their words warm our hearts, and speak to you of our professionalism, compassion, and the true value of the services we provide.

Dear Chris, We are so grateful to all of you for the beautiful way my brother's funeral was done. There was such kindness, peace and joy throughout it all. We couldn't have asked for more. We cannot forget the gift of Jake. We were all in love with him. We're sorry we got so "carried away" with him. I'm sure we'll be remembered as the family who undid all his service dog training. We're still laughing about that! We just adore him. I thought you would enjoy reading "The Little Red Lighthouse" to your granddaughter. There are so many life lessons in it. Read the history of it first. The other book reminds me of how important kindness is. I've given it to adults as well as to kids. I think you will see the messages loud and clear. You are a wonderful person. May the Lord Bless you, your wife and family. Simply Blessed, -------------

Dear Mr. Eccleston, I want to take the opportunity to express my heartfelt thanks for the way you took time and effort in a compassionate way to help us through a very painful time with my brother ------ ----- passing. From the time I called, after Hospice told us that ------ did not have much time, helpful information was given to me by Anthony and he guided me through the necessary process. Though he was businesslike, he was compassionate. This is much appreciated at a time like this. When ----- actually passed, I spoke to you, Chris, and then my husband and I met with you and Jake, Jake is so very special. When filling out the forms, it is made easier by having an adorable dog to pet. When I came to your office, I was greeted by Marianne, who is not only very pleasant but also profession. To sum up what I am trying to say, a very unpleasant time in our lives was softened and made easier by your professional staff and we so appreciated that. So thank you and your staff very much. Sincerely, ----- & ------- -------

Dear Chris, Anthony, Richard, Marianne (& Jake): My Dad and I wish to extend our sincere thanks and appreciation for the services provided by Jacobsen Funeral Home regarding the visitation, funeral mass, and burial arrangements for --------- --------. Your team was compassionate, organized, and extremely professional through all stages of what was an extremely emotional and painful time for my Dad and I. From the very first inquiry phone call and continuing through planning, oversite, preparation/care of my Mom, creation of the memorial video, Mass arrangements with St Elizabeth’s Church, and finally the burial services at St Charles Cemetery, your team made the process extremely easy to work through. Chris, your support, compassion, attention to detail and understanding of our family situation and needs helped to make the passing of my Mom more of a celebration of who she was and how she affected all of our lives in such a positive way. Again, our sincere thanks and appreciation for all that the Jacobsen team brings to dealing with and preparing for the passing of a loved one. Sincerely, -------- --------

--------- -------- January 25, 2021

I'd just like to express our utmost gratitude not only for the services but everything from start to finish including the following weeks when documents were needed. The compassion the staff showed when dealing with our family in such difficult circumstances was such a comfort. Anthony was more than a pleasure to work with. We were all treated like family. During the precession to the cemetery, we drove past Grandpas home and Anthony got out of the hearse, sprinkles rose petals leading to the front door and then placed a rose on the doorstep. A small gesture that is still spoken about months after the funeral. Best regards, the family of -------- --------.

Good morning Chris, It was so amazing to meet you. I am now more certain than ever that you are an angel on this earth. The memorial was more than we hoped for and gave my husband's family a special moment to be together with their father. I want to also thank you for giving me the peace of knowing my grandmother was no longer at the hospice but in your care. Knowing that she will also be honored in such a beautiful place will give my family much needed time to honor her together. Life is so unpredictable and from all the sorrow meeting someone like you gives me hope that there is still such good in this world. And yet it's true, these were such sad circumstances to meet in, but I am so glad God connected us in his own special way. I wish you a wonderful day. If there is anything else I need to do please call me at any time. Sincerely and sending many virtual hugs, -----

Dear Richard, On behalf of out family I would like to take a moment to say thank you Richard for making our mom ---- -------- funeral more special than we could imagine. When we first sat down to discuss all the details you were so patient, answered all question and made phone calls for further information on the spot. By the time we left we felt such relief that our mom was in such good hands and had an immense sense of peace. The appointment went so smooth. I will never forget you coming through the front doors of St. Patrick's Church with my mom's Horseshoe flowers. The instant I saw you it was like seeing an old friend. Then, when we went outside because you went to get my mom out of the car I said, "It figures mom would ride up front with Richard in what looked like a new hearse". I didn't realize you would attend the whole Mass. When I saw you were still there when it was over, again was like seeing an old friend. The Mass was so beautiful, and you helped our family so much to bring everything together. Richard you took my mom for her last ride above ground. you drove so perfectly and patiently. We are forever grateful and will look back and remember funeral our mom had. A.L. Jacobsen is very special to our family because of when our father ------- ------ ------- died in 1995 A.L. Jacobsen was there. I will never forget the kindness from Chris Jacobsen. Mom and Dad are together and every time we drive by A.L. Jacobsen Home we will have a warm sense of peace. Sincerely, ------- ------

Dear Brian, Rarely have I received such thoughtful and timely help, as I received from you yesterday. My request for a letter from A.L. Jacobsen to prove my brother's death was met with a compassionate effort to get it done. Although you had to search Through your archives, the letter was in my email within hours of my original call. As I explained I am trying to confirm weather my brother was in a communications unit as he told his family or actually in the infantry as was reported to me by a cousin last weekend. A letter from the funeral home was requested by military personnel records if a death certificate is not available. You presented all the information they asked for and I am sure your letter satisfies their requirements. Thank you so much for your kindness and empathy, your excellent letter and speedy reply. I am grateful for your service to me. Sincerely, ---- -----

---- ------ August 13, 2019

Brian, I just wanted to say thank you one more time for all you did for my mom, myself and my family this past week. You were a pleasure to work with and truly made us feel at ease and helped us through a very difficult time in my life. Your facility is very nice and everyone we came into contact was very kind and helpful. Of course Jakey did get a few bonus points for cuteness. I understand you were doing your job, but you have the ability to make people forget that you are doing a job and make them feel at ease, comfortable and truly cared for. That is a talent not all professionals master. You are very talented and do an incredible job. Again, thank you again for the "scoochyafoot" cards. They mean so much to us and what a wonderful way to begin two very difficult days. I hope you know how much that meant to us all. Thank you again. The Family of------------

Thank you also to Anthony, Kevin and to Henry who spent time with us during the evening viewing. Chris, your special message at my mother's gravesite was a real comfort. With deepest gratitude, ---- ---- & ------ P.S. Jake Jacobsen made me smile we enjoyed his presence.

Thank you all for helping me plan my dad's funeral. I think I spoke to each of you more then once. Marianne, Chris, Richard & Anthony you are all amazing and kind people. Thank you --- -------

Anthony has been a great help for me at this point. His very caring and helpful I am so happy that God has put angels to take care of my dad while he has been gone. Thank you Guys I really appreciate your work and dedication God Bless you Guys!!

Marianne and Anthony were a pleasure to deal with. They were very helpful and understanding . All of my messages were returned in a timely manner. You could not ask for anything more. I will certainly recommend Jacobsen’s to anyone I know when they have a need for a funeral parlor.

A.L. Jacobsen We weren’t prepared the night my wife, ------, died and called A.L. Jacobsen at 4am based on excellent reviews. Anthony returned our call, explained their services and gave me a price range (they were the only Funeral Home with a price list). In tragedy, finding A.L. Jacobsen was to prove the best choice that we could have made. We met with Chris later that morning and he took as much time as our family required to answer our questions and address our needs. He guided us in the preparations for my wife’s viewing. In all ways that a Funeral Home might have anticipated and relieved our burden, A.L. Jacobsen’s staff did exactly that. They attended to every detail that made ------’s viewing an unforgettable and beautiful event that, though terribly sad, was also joyous and a fitting celebration of her life. Throughout, Chris, Anthony, Richard, Kevin and the Jacobsen staff were accommodating, flexible, professional, compassionate and responsive. I could have had no better partner in helping us say farewell to my beloved wife and our beloved mother, grandmother, daughter, sister and friend. Every family member commented that they felt serene and fulfilled when we returned to the Funeral Home after the viewing. My heartfelt thanks and appreciation to A.L. Jacobsen and I would recommend them without reservation.

Your suggestion to make the DVD with photos worked out very well as Marianne's presentation was beautiful and family and friends enjoyed viewing it during the visitation.

Dear Chris, I can't thank you enough for making my mother's Memorial service go so smoothly. Everything was done calmly, efficiently and perfectly. I especially thank Marianne for doing all the picture boards and CD's. At the time, it would have been impossible for me do them. A lovely job!

To Everyone at A.L. Jacobsen: Our son ----- ----- died unexpectedly, and it was the most traumatic thing that we have ever experienced. We were totally overwhelmed with shock and grief, and during this unthinkable time in our lives, the entire staff at A.L. Jacobsen brought us into their loving care and helped us through this extremely time with compassion and respect. From the beginning, you all worked to make things as easy as possible for us. At this very difficult time, with many hundreds of people coming to pay their respects at the despite our needs, no matter how bug or small. You never rushed us, despite our staying well past the planned end time. you were there for us the entire time helpful and respectful to the end. You were there for us post-memorial also, helping with questions an multiple requests for death certificates, offering to do whatever you could for us. Everyone at A.L. Jacobsen gave us complete support as long as we needed it. We are very thankful and blessed that we chose you to help us through this traumatic time in our lives, and we know that no one else could have done what you did for us. We want to thank you all from the bottom of our hearts for how you treated our son -----, our families, our friends, and us. We will never forget you and the love and support you gave us.

------ November 26, 2016

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, ----- -------

---- ----- August 22, 2016

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 ------ --------

----- ------- August 22, 2016

Dear Chris, You have such a compassionate way of making your words sound like you are saying them for the first time. My mom's passing was eased by your genuinely caring manner. Please enjoy a lunch in her memory. Warm regards, -------- Family

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, -----

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

Dear Matt & Staff, No words could even begin to describe how I feel, it has not been easy at all.
