Having a loved one pass away is a emotional time for family members. There is a myriad of feelings one experiences through the grieving process. There are so many matters to think about; to do.

I write this with immense appreciation to Joe, especially Tim and all the others who partook in my father's, Donald "Pat" Rossi service.

Tim has a calming demeanor which was extremely beneficial to me. He provided us all the time we needed to make decisions. He suggested ideas for the service which at the time, I would never think of. I was so pleased. He contributed to the lovely service. Tim is detailed orientated and in result the serviced flowed flawlessly. He is a true professional.

Joe, Tim and others are genuine individuals who provided me a sense of solace. Yes, they are operating a business, but it is obvious it involves much more to them. They are sincere, compassionate and truly care about the families. I am grateful they managed and executed the service for my mother, Mary Toomey Rossi November 2019 and my father's in December 2020.

A heartfelt thank you to all.

I cannot say enough about the caring and warmth that was shown our family in our time of need. Thank you so much. I had no idea how to handle his wake and you guided our family through with thoughtfulness and understanding. Thank you again

Things have settled and life is back to normal but I can't remember if I expressed my gratitude to Joe and all the fine fellows who helped with my brother's recent service and his wife's last year. You know how to do the funeral business and we couldn't have asked to be treated any better. You saw to our needs and you were extremely respectful in your pre and post needs for both of our family members. Thank you very much. You set a high bar for my expectations of dealing with a local funeral home in Florida. Thanks again.

Words could never express how deeply comforted we felt knowing dad was cared for someone he liked. Everything my Dad imagined about his final moments were fulfilled completely. He would have been crying with pride to see it go so well.

Love and gratitude,
The J. Family


Just a note to say how thankful I am for all your help during the passing of our parents. Even with all of our crazy requests you accommodated our every wish. You were more support for our family then you'll ever know. You pulled it all together with grace and dignity as Mom and Dad deserved. You are not only a true professional bu also a very caring and generous person.

Thank you so much,
Laurie K.
