Dear Terry-

I’m writing to thank & commend you on all that you did to make my dad’s funeral services so special.  It felt like you were one of the family, yet your professionalism was outstanding.  I cannot tell you how many people noticed and commented on it (and there were many people there!), or how many whom I have boasted to.

Many people are not fortunate enough to live out their true calling.  I think you are.  You made such a difficult time so special, and one that, we will always remember fondly.

Thank you again.  It meant a lot to all of us.

Sincerely,

Karen Moore

You became a part of our lives on January 23, 2012.  Professionalism was and still is amazing.  I remember the first time I walked into the funeral home.  I was sooooooooo scared.  You talked me right through it.  You walked me through the whole funeral prep.  Advised me on things that would be a waste of time and $.  No funeral director does that!  I greatly appreciate it!  The way you dealt with Roshorn's body was breathtaking.  His body prep was on point,  Your grief support is amazing!  I look to you even now two years later and you still provide support.  You were patient with me when I decided I wanted a grave marker.  I held on to that paperwork forever.  But you didn't rush me.  To sum it all up, you are the best.  You care about the families you service.

Rosette Shivers & Family

Dear Terry,
How very thoughtful of you.  Thank you for the tapestry blanket of my husband.  I didn't know what to expect until I fully opened the blanket.  I have never seen anything like it.  It is so very beautiful and a wonderful treasured memory.  It is displayed on my husband's favorite living room chair showing him smiling back at me.
Thank you, Terry, for preparing my husband for his journey to Heaven.
I am very grateful to you for your kindness and caring.
Sincerely,
Helen Banko


Thank you for all your help during this time for me and my family,  It made everything easier and knowing I could depend on you and my family.  Please accept my deep appreciation and love.
Thank you

Terry Kowalski has to be the most professional,competent,sociable,thoughtful,and caring person who has the unique ability of wearing many "hats" and wearing them well! We had my mother, Angelina Ubaldi Kurek Ervin, living with us in Texas.  When she passed we had no idea as to how to have a funeral for her in Jersey.  Terry came to the rescue, took over, and handled all the funeral arrangements perfectly.  I actually was able to take a deep breath and relax. Mom was cremated and her cremains were placed in a box.  Terry had a beautiful cover for it and suggested we bring some photos to place on the table by the urn. Terry also gave the burial service. Terrific!

Rosemary Kurek Ulrich

Dear Terry,
I can't thank you enough for all of your help & understanding thru a difficult time.
The care that you showed & the personal touch that you gave meant so much to me.
I know my Mom was smiling down with her approval.  I definitely know she would have loved the way you did her hair!
I'm sure I will see you again; but if you're ever in Jupiter, call & join us for a glass of wine.
Love, Diane

Dear Terry,
On behalf of my extended family, and myself I would like to say Thank You for your guidance and assistance in preparing the arrangements for the funeral and burial of my Uncle Robert.  For many years, you and your family have been there for us in our times of mourning.  For that, I am extremely grateful and feel you will forever be a part of my family.  Stating that I was happy with your service is an understatement ad I would gladly recommend your funeral home to other family members and friends if the need arises.  Once again, thank you for being there for my family and me, and for making those difficult times more bearable.

I want to thank you for the beautiful service you provided for my beloved father, Alfred DaSilva,  You truly went above and beyond our expectations.  My father looked beautiful and at peace.  He looked like he did before he got sick.  Your speeches at the wake and cemetery put things into perspective and provided us comfort.  We loved how you called guests up by name and pointed things out on all the picture boards.  The book marks were an unexpected treasure.  Thank you for all the personal touches - it truly made a difference!!
Sincerely,
Michelle DaSilva-Cortese and Family of Alfred DaSilva


Terry,
On behalf of my sister Maryla Miskowicz and the entire family I would like to say Thank you for taking care of John.
As soon as we got home after the Funeral of our beloved John I thought of you - what a Special Person You are - my heart was telling me to send you a few words and express our grieving with "Thank You".
We have attended other funerals but nothing like the one you did for John with such a T.L.C. despite the weather which was not cooperating and lots of rain come down on us.
Thank God for amazing people like you blessed with such talent.
You have touched our hearts in a very special way.
May God Bless you every day with good health so you can continue to help other families in their difficult time when it arises.
PS.  You have done a wonderful job with our Mommy & Daddy and now John.  You treat everyone like family - Thank you.

Thank you for everything you did for my mother.  You made her final services inspirational.  Your words about her captured my mothers spirit.  At other services I recently attended, I noticed their lacking of the warmth I felt from you.  Everything you did was of the highest quality & very professional while still being supportive and kind during that difficult time.
The throw you sent is truly magnificent.  It made me cry, but it also made me remember all the wonderful times we shared with both my mother & father.  I will cherish it forever.

Dear Terry-

Just a note to express our heartfelt gratitude for the beautiful service for our beloved husband, father and grandfather, Edmund.

We were all so touched and pleased and we know he would have been too.

From the moment the two gentlemen who picked him up, so gentle and caring and who spoke with Tyler so thoughtfully because he was visibly upset, to the moment we said our final goodbye, the compassion and care you gave our Dad and family will forever be fondly remembered.  Thank you!

Sincerely

The Mazurek Family


Dear Terry,

I can't find the words to tell you how grateful we all are for making such a difficult time bearable.

I can't thank you enough for helping us through this very difficult time.

Ms. Terry Kowalski made our journey into the unknown so much easier.  When our father died in another state, we had no idea how to manage, but Terry set our minds at ease.  She took control of all details and assured us when we most needed it.  She treated us like family and became a friend.  I can't begin to thank her for everything she did.

Just a note to tell you how much your caring and kindness meant to us.  I have never met a funeral director who was as caring and nice as you.

You were our footprints in the sand when we needed them the most.

I also want to thank you for the book you sent to me.  It helped a lot.  Not for just Michael but for Debbie also.

Thanks for the announcement from newspaper for Michael.  I love the saying on the back.  The tapestry you sent George was beautiful he was so taken back he could not believe it.

Terry all I can say is God Bless you.  You are a truly caring person.

It is my pleasure to know you even under these conditions.

Thank you & Love

JoAnn Corduan


Dear Teresa,

Thanks so much for all that you have done for me and my family.  The blanket with the picture of Mom & Dad is so beautiful.  Everything was so beautiful & Mom looked stunning.  Thank you for everything!

With God’s Blessings

Rosemary & the Danko Family


Dear Terry,

We want to thank you for all you did for our family.  Your professional manner in seeing the process through both times and your personal touch in guiding us in the right direction to do what we needed to do helped make this difficult time bearable.  Your comments about Mom & Dad were so personal and appreciated.  We especially loved the “feather the nest” comment.  It was so Mom!  We now know why Dad insisted on going to Kowalski’s.  Thank you again for all you did and handled for us.

Sincerely,

Rick & Sue Babulski


Dear Terry,

Dear Terry,

I truly want to thank you for all you did in handling my dad’s funeral arrangements so well.  You were absolutely wonderful to work with; your support (on many fronts), your professionalism, your kindness & understanding & your always being available to talk & assist with our questions were very much appreciated.  You truly helped me & my father & my family so very much.  It was a real comfort to know you handled my dad’s funeral knowing the friendship between our fathers.

Thank you so much for sending the readings from my Dad’s funeral service for me & the girls which was so thoughtful of you & much appreciated.

Sincerely,

Donna M. Shaw


Dear Terry,

Please excuse any clumsiness, but this letter comes from the heart.

Thank you for all you’ve done for my family.  For being the ballast for me in corralling my family.  For restoring my Mom’s beauty.  You know what she endured.  You saw.  It was so important for my mother to always be a girl.  You gave her & her family that back to us.

You inspire devotion in whatever you do – I feel it.  How you guided us at our most lost & confused, professional, yeah, I know, but what you provided my family is unique & special & heartfelt.

When you were telling me about John Julius (I know, I know – JJ) the passions you spoke of JJ was powerful, another indication of the person you are.  Thank you, Terry, from the bottom of my heart.  I am indebted to you.

Ken


Terry,

Thank you for all your help and kind words in getting us through the last several weeks.  The military service was really something to see.  My father would have truly appreciated it.,

Also, thank you for the blanket.  The picture turned out great and it will stay in the family for many years to come.

Sincerely,

Maryann

Dear Terry,

Many thanks for the special gift of the engraved afghan.

When a person can make people feel good in sad times, that’s a person that I am very glad to have met.  I will remember your thoughtfulness always.

Fondly,

Geri


Dear Terry,

I am still being told how beautiful Mom’s funeral was.  Truly a celebration of life.  We all found ourselves uplifted by your kind words and wonderful way.  You speak from the heart.  I don’t know if you realize how special you are.

Many thanks for the beautiful gift you had made for us.  It is a treasure.

Words cannot express our many thanks.

God Bless you always,

Love,

Linda


Dear Terry,

Words cannot express the amount of gratitude I feel for you and the kind and professional way you were able to help me during this unexpected and trying time.

The funeral of my uncle, Richard, was one that I thought he would have been quite proud.  The services of Father Danik were very comforting.   But, your kind words and wisdom in what you said about Richard were so true.  I have looked back into the past when they were both with us and found comfort in many great memories.  Thanks,

The burial was very moving and special.  He would have loved it.  I will never forget it.

Many Thanks again,

Fondly,

Geri Kindler


Dear Terry,

Just a short note to thank you for the lovely afghan!  It is beautiful and will be a treasured memorial in our family!

We were very pleased with your services: The attention to details, the suggestions, the services, your kindness…in short – everything!

Even your “faint” was handled with grace & dignity and we hope you are ok!

Thank you, Terry, for all you did and for your friendship.

Dear Teresa,

I wanted to thank you for the beautiful services that you gave for my sister, Denise.  She is at peace now and watching over all of us from her special star in heaven.  Both my sister and father were most likely laughing at me when I was stuffing the balloons in my car.  They always said ---- don’t tell Donna if you need or want anything because she will always be right there for you.  And as always, I’m there for my family.

Kind Regards,

Donna Balick


Terri,

My family and I are so pleased at how you took care of everything we wanted for my Mom’s funeral.

Your professional attention to detail is only surpassed by your loving sincere compassion for making things better for grieving friends and family.

You are the best.

Thank you from Jaye, Frank and the Drukas family


Dear Terry

We can’t thank you enough for all you have done with taking care of Mom’s funeral (Jennie, aka/Nana).  (I would say it was lovely).  You run an amazing business, however you entwine personal with thoroughness.  The blanket, the pins, the verses you sent were lovely.  Will you please send our best to your Mom.  Your Dad would have been more than pleased with you – very very proud of you.  Take care.

Love & Sincerely,

Alice, Cherrie & Pam & Family


Terry-

You have a special way of making the most difficult of times easy.  Thank you for your care, concern, support and guidance.  I hope soon we will be able to share a nice dinner together and be able to have some laughs.  I’ll keep in touch.  Enjoy the rest of your summer.

Linda


Dear Terry,

I am sending you a heartfelt “Thank You” for all you have done for me at the saddest time of my life.  When my husband and I came to your office you made us feel so comfortable and calm.  Thank you for the beautiful blanket.  I never saw anything like it before and it means so much to me.  My Mom is upstairs now in her bedroom.  I go up there and talk to her everyday.  I know that I will see her again and hold her hand in Heaven.

Thanks again, you are one in a million.

Lots of Love,

Eileen Ferenzi


Dear Terry,

Thank you so much for everything.  We were all very touched by all you did to help us during our very sad time.  We find great peace in knowing Mom had the very best.

Thank you for your highly professional service, with unusual personnel   touch, which was very important to me and my children, after my husband passing.

Sincerely

Krystyna Tyrpa


Terry,

Once again we would like to thank you for all you did.  The beautiful words that you spoke on the morning of the funeral, the copies of the letters, the Angel pins, the books that you sent and the most touching and beautiful, the words on the blanket that you also sent us.  No words can explain the deep appreciation for all you do!

Thank you & God bless you and your family!

Josephine & Tommy


Terry,

Thank you for everything you did to make Mike’s services so beautiful.  Everything went so smoothly and I knew he was in good hands of someone who knew and cared about him.  He really received the best – he deserved it.  When Mike passed away, we were leaving the hospital and my brother Mike said he would call the funeral home and I said Kowalski’s without even to have to think about it, with no hesitation at all.  We also appreciate all your special touches and genuine concern for us.

Joan Palay


Terry,

You are a very special lady, our friends and relatives all commented on the way you greeted all of us like we were your family.  No one had ever experiences this from a funeral director before.  It was so wonderful to have this special caring at such a difficult time.  Thank you for the loving care you gave my sister Lorraine most of all.

God Bless you and thank you again for the wonderful poem you shared with us.

Christine


Dear Terry

I just received the throw blanket you sent.  I have put off writing thank you cards, but I felt I had to write this today.

First I want to thank you for the excellent way you orchestrated my wife’s funeral every thing was perfect and I am totally happy with the way every aspect was covered perfectly.

Second I want to commend you on attaining the perfect mixture of compassion and business that is a rare quality today.  I want to thank you for all you did.

Respectfully,

Dennis McBride


Dear Terry,

My family and I wanted to express our gratitude for all your help during our difficult time.

Your attention to details, organization, and most importantly, your warmth & compassion, were most helpful and appreciated.

Thank you again!

Thank you again for your professional services and your professionalism.

Gerry Pawlowski


Dear Terry,

On behalf of our family, we would like to thank you for everything you did for Aunt Adele’s funeral.

Words cannot express our deepest feelings – your kind words of individual comfort to each and every one of us, your smiling face, beautiful speaking voice, thorough explanations, personal reflections, laminated obituary cards, etc., etc…

You certainly went above and beyond at this difficult and sorrowful time of our lives and we wish to thank you form the bottom of our hearts!

With gratitude and love,

Arlene Rozborski Zelonis and family


Teresa,

Thank you so much for everything you did for Jimmy – before, during & after the funeral.  I cannot express how grateful I am.  The “throw” blanket, the grieving book and the poem show just how caring and thoughtful you are – above and beyond all your help and guidance.

Michele


Dear Terry,

There aren’t enough words to say to you how I feel about what you did for our Mother “Norma Jean”.

From the day of making arrangements to the very end – you made it all so bearable for us to deal with.  Your kindness, compassion and humor made it all feel so right.  The words you spoke, the breaks you gave us in the cost- just you being there first as our family friend meant everything.

Thank you Terry for all you did for us - our mother looked beautiful and we are forever grateful to you.  Our mother would have been so deeply touched.  To think she didn’t want to come to you because you knew her.  I don’t know what else to say - just know I am grateful.  Also, the blanket – it is absolutely beautiful and meant so much to our Dad.  We put it over the back of their loveseat which the colors match the loveseat.  If I left out anything I’m sorry – just thank you dear friend.

Love,

Jo-Ann


Terry-

What can I say to Thank You for all you have done to get us thru this crazy situation.  You have the best repore and know exactly what to do.  We thank you for your help and being there for us, as always, making things so easy for us.  You are the best.

Luv Ya

Di


Dear Terry

Words cannot describe how grateful my family and I are to you.  Your professionalism, human kindness and excellent organization were beyond our expectations.  We appreciated all of your attention to the details as well as your flexibility and care in doing the best (given the circumstances) to ensure my father had arrangements done with dignity and respect.  We thank you from the bottom of our hearts and may God bless you and your family.

Kind regards,

Vivian Pacheco

Sincerely

Dear Terri

Thank you so very much for all you did for us.  God bless you all.

The Sacks’ Family


Dear Terry-

I am usually not at a loss for words, but expressing my appreciation for all of your kindness & calm during all the arrangements is finding me a little short since Thank You just doesn’t seem sufficient!

From both far & near – Florida to New Jersey everything went so smoothly!  Everyone was so pleased with the service at the gravesite.  I am disappointed we missed it – but am so very relieved that it was beautiful.

Our appreciation is boundless ---

Thank you.

Carol Ruthfield


Dear Terry,

There was tremendous comfort in knowing that we had you to walk us through everything.

Best wishes to you ----- continued health & happiness

Love

Chris Molloy


Dear Terry,

Thank you so very much for all of your guidance and support this past week.  You really made it easy for us to accomplish a nice ceremony for Georgine and to basically keep us all in one piece without cracking up.  A special thanks from me for the wonderful ways in which you handled my kids, talking openly about very sensitive subjects.  You have been an angel sent to us from heaven.  We will never forget your kindness, sensitivity and the amazing woman you are.

Love,

The Waseleski Family

Thank you so much for assisting me and my family with our funeral arrangements for Bernice Giovinco.  You so generously shared your knowledge and experience to gently guide us through this emotional event.

Your help made our final tribute to Bernice loving, comfortable and dignified.

Thank you again for everything.

God Bless You.

Affectionately.

Dear Terry,

Thanks so much for sending the photos of the marker for my parents gravesite - It looks lovely.  Again, I truly have appreciated all your efforts to make this a memorable, pleasant experience.  You've done a great job!  Our grandparents (& parents) are probably having a "toast" to all the "ado" right now!

Regards,

Marsha Dodds Baumbaugh


Thank you for your kindness.  My daughter was especially touched by the throw you sent with her Grandmother’s name on it.

You are a professional & we were in such need of someone like you & grateful we found you.

JoAnn LaVista


Dear Terri,

I’m writing to thank you for all of your kind words at Uncle Walter’s services.  You really reminded me of some very happy memories that I experienced as a child.  Describing the neighborhood as an “inter-family” really captured the essence of that special time.  I will miss Uncle Walter and Aunt Marion, but will always remember their love in that house in that street in that wonderful neighborhood.  Thanks again for ensuring everything went smoothly and for all of your kind words.

Warm regards,

Marion Velocci
